Podcast / The Mike O'Meara Show
The Mike O'Meara Show
is a podcast produced five days a week starring former radio host Mike O'Meara, former radio sidekick Robb Spewak, and Bolivian Oscar Santana
. The gang discusses their lives, news of the day and anything they happen to find funny. They're the headline show for the MORE Broadcasting
This podcast provides examples of:
- Ascended Extra: Robb Spewak was an intern on the Don & Mike Show, then became Mike's co-star when he launched his own show.
- Ascended Fanboy: Oscar Santana was a Don & Mike Show fan in his youth, though he was also a radio personality in his own right before he teamed up with Mike.
- Berserk Button: Mike has a lot of these, usually Played for Laughs. The suggestion that any of the cast isn't fully committed to the show will trigger a deadly serious explosion.
- Technical Difficulties frequently hit the button, given the challenge of getting finicky radio equipment to work at two different studios over a Skype connection.
- Fan Disservice: Robb talking about sex will always provoke disgust from the other guys.
- Power Trio: Mike, Robb and Oscar.
- Putting the Band Back Together: How the show got started. Mike, Robb and Buzz were fired from CBS Radio, and Oscar convinced them to start a podcast (and came along for the ride).
- Unperson: Marc Ronick, following his abrupt departure from the show.
- Buzz Burbank, one of the founders of the podcast who left to do his own news show, has become this in a sense, since he's rarely mentioned and doesn't appear in any Best Of shows.
