Hey, so first off — apologies to anyone who I left hanging for the past two weeks. I was planning to post this interview with my friend Erik Silk one weekend after Yoichi Shiga’s episode… And then work and personal life got in the way.

Anyway! This is a fun conversation and you should listen to it. Erik and I talk about the art of ice hockey, the best flavors of Starburst and what he would do if he were disgustingly wealthy, among many other topics.
