046 Lou Mongello | Can’t Fake It In Podcasting

I really had a blast talking to Lou Mongello for this week’s episode. Lou is a serious Podcast Junkie who has been podcasting since 2005. He’s the host of Walt Disney World Radio and has a very ‘what you see is what you get’ personality. Lou is definitely, definitely passionate about what he does and you can hear it radiate off his voice as I was interviewing him.
