During Mike’s college years, he performed as Goldy the Gopher, the official mascot of the University of Minnesota. Mark grew up about 30 minutes from the Twin Cities, so this is a Minnesota heavy episode- winter activities, lumberjack statues, being jettisoned from the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, this episode has it all. Mark is also a graduate of the University of Wisconsin, and has his love of Bucky Badger challenged by a friendly rival. Mike's behind the scenes knowledge and experience in the mascot world is very fun. Follow the show on instagram- @mascotspodcast and Email the show- firstname.lastname@example.org. LET’S GO!
