We finish the "Marathon of Mike's" with a fun (and gross) filled Team Hustle. Daniel and Michael are not alone, they are joined by special guest, Mike Tobias.

The guys play: "Never Have I Ever", "Rock, Paper, Scissors" and more to find out who eats a bean each round. Michael scream in horror, does Mike ever get a good bean or does Daniel cry. You'll have to listen to find out. The blue bean could be Blue Berry or Toothpaste, the white bean could be coconut or spoiled milk, you won't know until you eat the bean. Enjoy?

Ep. 31 - Split's Izzie Coffey, Act One
Izzie Coffey began her career in the spotlight as a young model in GA and FL.  From Modeling she found a love for performing which lead her (and her mother) all the way to LA.  Most recently Izzie was seen in M. Night Shyamalan's "Split" playing a 5 year old Casey.  She has also been in several other commercials and movies including "Bad Girl" and "Cargo".  The first thing you notice about Izzie is her positivity and professionalism.  She is on and ready to go when it's time, but always ready to relax and have a laugh and some fun. In Act One, Daniel sits down with Izzie to discuss growing up in a small town in GA, getting into modeling, and eventually moving to LA.  They also discuss how her family has supported her, how she took to acting and why she loves it so much.  Of course they discuss her role in split, the fast turn around from casting to on set how she remains a kind in this very professional and sometimes stressful business and her three tips for other kids wanting to get into the business.  Izzie was so amazing to talk to.  Her perspective on acting and LA is something you do not want to miss, so, don't.
