BRX Pro Tip: Lee’s Favorite Serendipity Story Transcript
Stone Payton: [00:00:01] Welcome back to Business RadioX Pro Tips. Stone Payton and Lee Kantor here with you. Lee, one of the things that I love about this work, and I love so much about it is how just the serendipity, just the connections they get made that, at least, for me, I would never see coming. Do you have a favorite serendipity story?
Lee Kantor: [00:00:23] Absolutely. My favorite story of just kind of the randomness and the connections that happen in a show, especially where you’re giving everybody a chance to tell their whole story, and everybody is kind of engaged and listening intently was when we had in here the founder of the Fur Bus, which is a party bus that has fur in it. And the guy that runs that was the mascot from the Auburn Tigers. He was the tiger. And he’s telling the story about how Fur Bus started, and why it’s fur, and how mascots were part of his life.
Lee Kantor: [00:01:00] So, we’re going around the room, and that guy was probably in his mid-20s at the time. We get to the last guest, a guy named Bob Littell, who is a guy probably in his 60s or 70s, and he’s an insurance salesman, and he is part of the Netweaving and Pay it Forward Movement. And he’s a super sweet guy. And he, at the end, tells us, “You’re never going to believe this, but back in the day when I was in college, I was the Colorado Buffalo mascot.” So, in one episode, we had two people that were mascots at fairly large colleges in the same room. In my entire life, I had never met one mascot. And here, just randomly, there were two mascots on one show. So, that is my favorite story of serendipity in the studio.
