I saw Jack at the 2017 Garbecue. Didn't really talk to him, though. He greets folks on the comments board often, so we're kind of internet buds.

Well, that's not how children eat...

Hi everybody! What a privilege to have Hoboken royalty on our show tonight. Also, Irwin doesn’t know! He thinks only children eat cereal.

@Prudy I am in my car in the driveway refusing to get out

If IRL had an intern, that person could be with Jack at the show now and file a live report.
Avatar Wed. 5/22/19 7:20pm kimzilla:

@John from Florham Park, I like that too.
  Wed. 5/22/19 7:21pm Emily:

Now accepting internship applications.
  Wed. 5/22/19 7:21pm prudy:

you cut off a bit of the interview...perhaps that was intentional

@Purdy, I started the 3rd part by mistake, live radio!

@Emily can that be done remotely?

ok

I'd think cereal (depending on what kind we're talking about) would be a good choice for colon health.
  Wed. 5/22/19 7:23pm John from Florham Park:

@emily tempting maybe in a few months I will try to to intern for your show and do some volunteer stuff for the station
  Wed. 5/22/19 7:23pm Emily:

@joe sure thing! The internship would mostly be helping us find and book interesting guests.

@jffp one of my faves,,,also I really loved 'THAT 70S SHOW!!" ironic aint it???? =) =)

I had family friends, co-workers, and fellow students who were paraplegics and pity was never a consideration. I was in awe of their individuality and their incredible souls.

Nice interview, Jack. I heard over 45 minutes of it till dinner guests arrived.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 5/22/19 10:46pm Irwin:

(Listening in the archives.) Jack's meeting-me origins story is true, but it was a casual encounter that didn't trigger the deeper friendship, which came about after Superstorm Sandy. So Jack's correct, and I'm not wrong.
Avatar 🎃 Wed. 5/22/19 11:43pm Hoboken Jack:

Thanks, G! And I accept Irwin's clarification.
