129 Celebrating 3 Years | A Conversation with Gary Leland

By Harry Duran

To celebrate my three year anniversary of Podcast Junkies, I had the pleasure of speaking with podcasting veteran, Gary Leland. Although Gary is a well-known Hall of Fame podcaster, there is so much more to him that makes him tick. I was so honored that Gary shared so many incredible stories from his life that he hasn’t shared before so we could all get to know him better. I love bringing you these great conversations and I want to thank you for listening, for continuing to listen and I’m humbled to have you as part of the Podcast Junkies family. 03:44 - His online stores and businesses 09:18 - His view on inventions and ideas 10:59 - His mini-blinds and wallpaper business 19:09 - Innovations in wallpaper 21:18 - Why the wallpaper business fell from grace, what took its place, and its resurgence 25:13 - What it’s like working with his wife, Kathy 29:58 - What attracted him to Kathy 30:56 - What has changed about him over time 33:04 - When he realized Facebook was going to be a tool for business 33:37 - Pinball machines 35:18 - What he misses doing 36:27 - His two fondest surfing memories 48:35 - His childhood and growing up with guns 54:04 - How policing has changed and his run-ins with the law 01:07:03 - His very first business and the first time he got screwed in business 01:10:13 - Beating chess phenom Bobby Fischer 01:14:08 - Sneaking into sporting events Full Show Notes: http://podcastjunkies.com/3ybonus-gary-leland-interview/
