This 2-part set of episodes is going to be pure audio gold, with my guest for the next 2 weeks being Mr. Marty Gold. Marty is a professional wrestler, play-by-play broadcaster, radio personality, writer, journalist, and so much more that it's no surprise that just one episode alone will not hold all of this man's stunning career. In Part One, we discuss the formation and his role as the editor in chief of his online Canadian Jewish newspaper 'The J' and how it's grown to be a major source of news and information for Canada's Jewish Communities. We also get to dive in a little bit about his time spent in Canadian sports/talk radio and some behind the scenes understanding of radio and broadcasting in general. Stay tuned for all this and more to come on next week's Part Two!
