Bits of Jones and Mike: Honest, adult, real conversations about life

MikePics_WithJonesWarriorJones has always been a curiosity to Mike: A single, never-married, child-free, south-side Chicago son of two Irish immigrants, who’s now knocking on the door of middle age as a city-dwelling, transcendental meditating, hockey-playing, Cubs-rootin’, Brazilian ju jitsu-trainin’, grocery-store vegan.

Mike is the quintessential suburban dad by comparison: a Naperville-living, beer-lovin’, 40-something, long-married father of 4. Mike has traded in his guitar, martial arts, and motorcycling for the ignominy of ferrying “wee-Noonans” to various sports or dance practices.

Despite their disparate life experiences, the high school friends are determined to get to the bottom of what Prince called “this thing called life”: family and kids, politics and history, wives and women, business and money, people and perspectives, sports and fighting, & pop culture and America.

Jones and Mike. Real radio that’s unashamed, unfiltered, and unafraid.
