Podcast / The Mike O'Meara Show

Go To

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 podcast network.

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.
