Podcasts he enjoys include The Rewatchables
about movies one can watch over and over; Waterloop
for industry-related information featuring host Travis Loop; and The Tony Kornheiser Show
: “It’s hilarious, smart and ties me back into my D.C. days.”

“CNBC’s The News with Shepard Smith
is the best newscast out there.”
