What’s this podcast all about? Well everything important. And nothing in particular. In between all that, we solve world problems. Micromanage each other’s personal lives. Tell stories. Riff on social and cultural happenings. Predict the future. Mock ignorance wherever we find it. And generally rant, rave and question the things you’re not supposed to talk about in “polite circles” – especially politics, sex, and religion. After seven years of having coffee and great conversations every Friday morning, we thought you might enjoy our chats as much as we did, so we decided to launch this podcast! Join us for an always authentic, hopefully enlightening and entertaining conversation.

Welcome to 5 Questions in 5 Minutes  — our little podcast bonus to the longer Carl and Mike episodes. Each week on 5?:5min, we answer five questions in … you guessed it 5 minutes. 

 

What kind of questions? Everything’s fair game. Ask questions about us, or something you heard on the podcast, a personal or business issue, or a world problem.

 

What makes us qualified to answer your questions? Think of us as Dear Abby’s twisted uncles. And besides we’ve got a podcast and most likely lived longer than you, so leave your sensibilities at the door and ask away. 

 

To start things off Carl asks Mike 5 questions for him to answer in 5 minutes.

 

Send your questions through Twitter @carlandmike.net, or ask in the comments section on oir website at: carlandmike.net. Get your question on the show and we’ll email you a Carl and Mike Thought Leadership badge! Thanks for your support!
