Episode 20: Mascots

Episode 20 is all about those goofy creatures we love to laugh at–the mascots.

I talk to author AJ Mass about his new book on life as a mascot.


I then give a recommendation on an Internet TV series that profiles four separate mascots, and the lives of those inside.


And old Matty is the MVP of My Heart.

It’s always a pleasure to see another one of these show up.

The mention of the St. Paul Saints’ team of mascots was a great inclusion, and the interview with A.J. Mass was a lot of fun (along with the rest of the show).

But I’ll admit to being a little disappointed Teddy Roosevelt of “Let Teddy Win!” fame didn’t earn a mention.

Overall, though, I’m happy anytime I get to pipe “Stealing Home” into my earbuds.
