There are so many good podcasts, but so little time to listen to them all. This week we’re highlighting a fantastic new show from the Exactly Right Podcast Network called Waiting For Impact. It is the brainchild of the host and creator, Dave Holmes. Dave is the ultimate multi-hyphenate who happens to be obsessed with a boy band that disappeared from our pop-culture consciousness in 1991. His podcast is a cross between VH-1’s Behind the Music and Finding Bigfoot. Dave talks to Joe about his start in show business, the inspiration for Waiting For Impact, and why he loves podcasting so much.
