This week on Rants Without Pants, Part 2 of our “Farewell Interview with Co-founder and Publisher of Dane101 Jesse Russell”.
As I stated in the video, Jesse Russell has been an inspiration to me. I am in awe of his commitment to Madison, of the endless amount of creative ideas that is banging around in his head as well as his willingness to give a guy like me the opportunities that he has. I will always be in Jesse Russell’s debt.
Jesse Russell’s departure will leave a hole in Madison that simply can not be filled. He will leave a legacy all his own.
Anyway, to me, Part 2 of this interview is fascinating as he says his goodbyes and discusses so many interesting topics.
After the interview, there is a new segment called “Five Rants in a Minute”. (I cheated and only put in four…shhhhh…don’t tell anyone)
