Fish and the Flint Chronicles Greatest Hits!
Show One and Two
October 2 and 4, 2019
It’s hard to believe it’s been a year since our first episode of “Fish and The Flint Chronicles”!
We’ve had some truly amazing guests, and featured stories that not only tell an amazing historical tale, but also provides tremendous value and opportunity for learning how to navigate the future.
And that’s just for openers!
In volume 1 of our Greatest Hits we explore the athletic realm. Sports is one of Flint’s most impressive exports. You can make a case (and we do) that it's the greatest sports city per capita in American history. It’s a HUGE part of our history and legacy, and we’ve had far more than our fair share of them on the show in our first year including:
Jack Nicklaus, The GOAT of golf, discussing how he purchased his first car ever in Flint- a Buick , and then getting a little Flint automobile history from Fish!
Jimmy Abbott, Sullivan Award and Golden Spikes winner, Flint Central Indian, Michigan Wolverine, Olympic Gold Medlaist, Pan Am Games star, Major League Baseball star and ‘No Hit’ pitcher for the New York Yankees
Rick Leach, Michigan football legend and Major League Baseball star with the Toronto Blue Jays, San Francisco Giants, and Detroit Tigers.
Paul Krause, NFL Hall of Famer, FOUR sport high school All American at Burton Bendle High School, TWO sport college All American, and current holder of the hallowed NFL interception record. Quite likely the greatest athlete ever from Flint.
Eric Turner, National Punt, Pass, and Kick winner as a kid, three sport star at Flint Central, virtually inarguably the greatest high school basketball player in Flint history, and a star at The University of Michigan. He is a true Flintstone legend.
Glen Rice, All State and All American at Flint Northwestern, back to back state champion, National Champion at The University of Michigan, and World Champion with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Anthony Dirrell, WBC Boxing World Super Middle Weight Champion. A tough man among tough men, from a tough city. He beat cancer, a serious motorcycle accident, and everybody else in his division!
Mark Ingram Jr. Grand Blanc and Flint Southwestern football star, National Champion at Alabama, winner of the Heisman Trophy, and current NFL star running back.
Brent Williams, Flint Northern football star, and long time New England Patriot and NFL star. He bedeviled quaterbacks all over the league.
Rico Phillips, The reigning NHL Willie O’ Ree Award winner and founder of the Flint Inner City Hockey League. He is an incredible asset to the community- and a retired firefighter to boot.
Keith Gave, Former CIA agent, sportswriter and the author of the book “The Russian Five” documenting the rise of the Detroit Red Wings
John Wharton, the Flint Northern product who was the Trainer for the Stanley Cup winning Detroit Red Wings teams
Mike Ramsdell, Flint's own film director extraordinaire! The mastermind behind the Jimmy Abbott movie "Set Apart" on heavy rotation on ESPN, and also an award winning serious documentary filmmaker. He's pure Flintstone and 100% real.
Joshua Riehl, Director of what just might be the best hockey documentary ever. "The Russian Five" has played to acclaim all over the world! He's on hand to discuss the film and filmmaking.
To celebrate all of this, and reflect on a very fast, and very cool first year on the air, we’ve compiled our “Fish and The Flint Chronicles: Greatest Hits Volume I and II.
Although we had to leave a LOT of great guests out of this recap, you’ll get a feel for just how incredible this first year was. We aim to make our second year even better! It’s history, it’s fun, it’s entertaining as hell, and most of all it’s pure FISH AND THE FLINT CHRONICLES!
What it's all about!
