And needless to say we discussed his Ram Truck. I’ll be posting the videos in the interview within the coming days, so keep the eye out for that. I learned a whole lot through the interview, plus some with the stuff he shared was very interesting, so I’m getting excited about posting everything. One thing that basically stood out about Dan is I got eventually to see firsthand how good of the storyteller he could be. The cadence with which he speaks, the pauses, just how he recalls things – it’s all so engaging. It truly is this type of skill and talent, and you may understand why he’s so successful on air. The interview went effectively and Dan was a pleasure for being around and great host to us. Following the interview … Perhaps one of the most common questions I’ve been asked since taking the trip is: which are the Danettes like?
Is everyone as cool personally because they seem inside the show? And the solution is: yes. Paulie, Seton, Fritzy and McLovin are super chill, super cool and really funny guys. Everything you see on air is strictly what they’re like personally. And that’s why the show works so well. That laid-back, hang loose, talk sports, casual, enjoyable vibe that you are feeling when you’re watching or hearing the show is how they’re in true to life. They’re in a position to combine take that and translate it on air while providing you an organized show. Causing you to feel just like you’re going out in a guy cave with some fun guys talking sports will be a lot harder to accomplish than it sounds, but they’re in a position to take action perfectly and that’s because it’s so natural for the kids. Additionally you hear that Dan and McLovin are pretty tall guys, but it’s a very important factor to listen to it and to view it personally. They’re both very tall.
