It’s finally here. The final episode in season one of Chasing Mimi. It’s been a pleasure cruising the high seas with y’all, and I just want to personally thank each and every person who supported us along the way. We couldn’t do it without our guests and our listeners and Mimi fans around the world. Give yourselves a round of applause.

The winner of the fan vote was Michael Felder (@InTheBleachers) and we discuss everything from weaponizing trash and Home Alone: Vegas to Samuel L Jackson and the band Journey. It’s a wild ride to say the least.

Episode 12 – MEN OF SCIENCE AND WOODEN BOATS

Welcome to the penultimate episode of Chasing Mimi, the world’s foremost and only Voyage of the Mimi podcast. We are pleased and #blessed to announce our guests this week are Ohio State graduates and friends of the podcast Luke Zimmerman, who was newly raised in the SB Nation Line of Succession, and Dr. Denny Mayo.

This week’s episode may not give us Red Wedding levels of drama and jaw-dropping action, but the podcast sure does. Climb aboard as we talk about Wooden Boat magazine, poets on a deserted island, and more. This is place you’ll find recruits committing to a school mid-episode, setting yet another first for our fair broadcast.

Our 11 guests are below, so vote early and vote often, Vote Or Die and so on and so forth, but our winner will be chosen with all the honor bestowed on selfish grandstanding and politicking. Cheers.

Episode 11 – BROOKLYN AND MEMPHIS BLEEK Y’ALL

It’s Episode 11 of Chasing Mimi, and we’re still trapped on an island debating the merits of the localvore movement. Thankfully, our guest this week is Andrew Sharp of Grantland (and formerly of SB Nation) fame.

And if you have questions, well don’t be a stranger, email us at sailingwithben@gmail.com. Cheers.

Episode Eight – SELF-ADDRESSED STAMPED ENVELOPES

It’s Week Eight of Chasing Mimi, so we’re breaking new ground as the first and only podcast to record eight weeks straight about the Voyage of the Mimi. To celebrate, we’ve brought on creative Swiss Army Knife Brian Spaeth to explore all the intrigue and plot development of what looks to be the end of Act II in our fair broadcast.

We tackle important issues like X-Men mutant powers, divorce, the phenomenon that is people calling TV shows “movies” and how to survive a cow attack. Also check out Brian’s website where you can find all the fun stuff he does when he’s not coming on podcasts about 80s education television.
