In episode 27 of The Marc Clair Show, Marc is joined by former radio man, current podcaster and fellow Florida Man, David Gornoski! David breaks down his experiment in terrestrial radio and why he decided to go back to podcasting with shows like "Things Hidden" and "A Neighbor's Choice." Marc and David discuss mimetic theory and how it helps us understand the motivations and desires of human beings. They dovetail into David's wheelhouse of Christian anthropology, and find a unique analogy comparing the ultimate scapegoat to the GOATS in the pro wrestling world.

Check out David Gornoski on YouTube.

In the Smoke-Filled Room bonus segment, David takes a quick thought about pro wrestler Sting and turns it into quite literally my favorite podcast segment of all-time, breaking down "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan's heel turn, how Sting has earned the respect of pro wrestling fans, and what exactly can we learn from all of this? I'm not joking - my favorite segment ever!
