We will be releasing more details in April so be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel and stay tuned for more details!

Somethings Coming…

Somethings coming…

In the meantime, we are working to archive all episodes of our former flagship podcast, ‘Conversations’ with Brett and Mike on YouTube., starting with Episode 1 with Joseph Burke from November 2014!

The End Is Here…

After much deliberation, I have decided to close down Next Big Thing Radio and “Conversations”. The last 3 years have been a blast and I have met some amazing people and long lasting friends because of it, but the time has come for me to move on and pursue other dreams.

Thanks to my co-host, Mike Dowler, and all of the amazingly talented men and women we have had on for making ‘Conversations’ and Next Big Thing Radio what it is, a family. This is not a decision I came to lightly and have been thinking about for some time.

Most importantly, thank you to all of you, our fans, for your continued support. It means so much to me that I was able to take this fledgling little podcast and turn it into something truly amazing that I will be proud of for years to come! Conversations Episode 87 will be our last show.

Thank you again for all of your continued support. We could not have done this without our fans.
