Consider this the bye week for the podcast, but that doesn't mean we don't bring you an incredible episode. It just means we will deviate from the format of the first 29 episodes, but bring you a very special conversation between two friends. Jamie Flam and Sean Aronson have known each other for more than 20 years, dating back to their days at Granada Hills High School. Jamie was the inspiration for this podcast (go back to Episode 1 and listen to Sean discuss how influential Jamie was in the process). In this episode you will learn about both these guys and how they got to where they are. Learn more about Sean, and his route to St. Paul, and find out how Jamie handles the egos of big time comics, how he became the booker for the Hollywood Improv and which new SNL cast member he gave time to on the stage at the Improv that helped her career. This is a crossover episode of The Voice Behind the Voice and Jamie's podcast, The Gatekeeper.

We all know what it's like getting overlooked for a promotion. But how many of us know what it's like to get that promotion and then be asked to go back to our original jobs? In Episode 29 Brian Roth, the voice of Colorado State, talks about waiting his turn to get the top job as radio broadcaster with the Rams, but once he got it a new AD came in and asked him to slide back to doing color commentary because they wanted a big name in the top spot. Brian also talks about how the head football coach gave him a "recruiting" speech to stay with the program and how Rams fans have treated him despite being a graduate of the University of Colorado.
