Mike Elder - Mascots

Mike Elder, aspiring actor and creator of the delightful podcast Box Angeles, is our guest to talk about MASCOTS. The characters who represent various sports teams and the people who wear the costumes. Mike was one of the people who performed as "Goldie" the gopher mascot for the University of Minnesota, and he talks about his experiences and advice. What makes a good mascot? Why should you always keep moving? Why should the Lakers definitely get a mascot? What happens at mascot competitions? Who is the least liked college mascot among other college mascots? Also, Will discusses the word "hagiography" and Anthony reveals his secret to happiness: an Imagine/Jump mashup from a DJ named Mighty Mike.
