Purtan Podcast #70: "Imagine That!"

Welcome to another weekend and another new Podcast - (#70!). Today Jackie and I are joined by not-so-frequent-but-always-amusing former “Purtan’s Person” Joe Noune. Joe was the man behind many of the character voices on my radio show from Ronald Reagan to Japanese Comic “Socki Too-Me”. 
The three of us “tackle” a lot of important issues including Notre Dame football star, Manti Te’o’s mysterious, non-existant girlfriend, who apparently died although she was never actually alive. Plus, Joe offers a list of reasons that prove Manti might be just a bit gullible. For example, he wants to win a Superbowl with the Detroit Lions. 
We also explain the hot new trend called “Te’oing” - where people take and post pictures of themselves with their imaginary girlfriends.  
And speaking of “dating”, Joe shares his true-story about a Russian women he met on the Web who wanted him to send her $690 - and not a penny more! And then he tells us about a REAL woman that he met on the Internet, set up an “in person” date with…and let’s just say there isn’t enough beer in the world to have drunk that woman pretty.
For the female perspective, Jackie tells her own social media story about creating a fake on-line dating site profile in order to find out what her then-husband was up to. And Dick, based on his acting in “Beverly Hills Cop III” has some advice for “Lincoln” star Daniel Day Lewis about the upcoming Oscars. 
So grab your imaginary significant other and tune in to Podcast #70!
Have a great weekend and I’ll see you back here with our daily blog on Monday!
