John Blair‎ to Mike Rowe

Well Mike, CBS Sunday Morning just did a news report in Charlotte and her cookies. [ Cbsn.ws Link ] Very cool story, except for their misrepresentation of the facts. Your involvement was totally ignored and went unreported. This is why so many can't trust news media today. The story wasn't a lie, it just wasn't totally complete. I was hoping it would...

Four hour delay at LAX. Right on the verge of feeling sorry for myself. Then I saw this guy. Attitude. There is no substitute.

TJ Mackin‎ to Mike Rowe

Hello mike, have you heard about the DESTINATION going down in the Bering Sea losing all its crew members? All of deadliest catch are paying tribute to them. Just curious why you haven't mentioned this tragic news?

Hi TJ

Twelve years ago, I was in Dutch Harbor, shooting the first season of Deadliest Catch. Originally, I had been asked to host the show, and frankly,...

Time to close the loop on Charlotte McCourt's Great American Girl Scout Cookie Caper. If you haven't heard, Charlotte absolutely crushed it. Attached is a nice summation.

Meanwhile, I just got this, from the young lady who dared to tell it like it is...

Dear Mike Rowe,

I would like to thank you for the kind endorsement on your
podcast. I would like to tell you that I have officially...

This is a great little video that I suspect many of you have already seen. It was all over my wall a few weeks ago, and I should have shared it then. Partly because it makes a great point faster and more eloquently that I can, and partly because...well, I make cameo toward the end. Check it out...

A Little VD Magic, from Me to You!

Many years ago, when I was impersonating a host on the QVC Cable Shopping Channel, someone in merchandising thought it might be a good idea to offer a Karoke machine to the general public. To my knowledge, no retailer had previously made such a device available, or done more with a single product to horrify the sensibilities of professional musicians around...

Hi Carol

I get it. You adore me. You miss me. Life without me is a hollow shell, blah, blah, blah. Look Carol, I’m flattered and all, but try to understand – I got a lot going on. There’s a new cat in the...

Back in 1984, after graduating college with a degree in communications, I scoured the want ads to see if perhaps anyone was hiring professional “communicators.” Finding no available positions, and in dire need of something akin to an actual job, I began listening to professional narrators and voiceover artists, and started asking myself questions like, “Who are these people?” and “Why...

As groups go, you’d be hard pressed to find a better audience than veterinarians. Smart, funny, compassionate, and very thirsty, they make it easy for a feverish public speaker strung out on flu medication to fill 90 minutes. From what I’m told I barely embarrassed myself at all. Many thanks to everyone at North American Veterinary Community. In particular, Tom.

Here, Tom can be seen playing...

Hey Mike. Don’t know if you are bored waiting for your flight to leave but my friend Jason Eichenholz says he is sitting across from you on the plane. How about blowing his mind and asking him if he is Jason and that you have heard all about him? That is of course, if you are checking Facebook on your phone, like so many do when bored. Safe...

Hey Mike - Where you been? We worry you know, when you fall off the grid. What’s the latest with those Girl Scout Cookies? I just saw something about it on my local news. More than 10,000 sold? How do you explain that? Must be weird, posting a video from your kitchen table, and watching it go around the world.

Hi Fran

I have indeed, been derelict in my...

I just got a text from my mother, along with the attached photo. The text read, “Shopping at Publix. Parked alongside a Rolls Royce.” That’s it. Just two sentences, along with some corroborating photographic evidence.

What do you suppose my mother is trying to tell me here? Obviously, she’s intrigued – or possibly bemused – by her proximity to Rolls Royce. But why? Is it because a Rolls...

A quick update...

Many of you are wondering about the number of Girl Scout Cookie Boxes sold as a result of Charlotte's letter. I suspect this is because many of you are involved in some sort of on-line wager. While gambling is probably not an approved Girl Scout activity, I'm happy to provide the stats as they become available, as well as the shifting odds on the 10,000 Box Over/Under....

Hey there. I'm getting better at creating shameless plugs out of old photos. Not great, but better. Check out the new episode at mikerowe.com/podcast.

Also, if you're sick and tired of events on earth, I'm narrating a cheery little film about Mars called "Life and Death on the Red Planet." Tonight at 10PM EST on Science.

I think it's the feel-good hit of the summer...

Mike - I'm in need of something to repost today that encourages my friends who are feeling extreme apprehension that America is about to crash and burn. I also need something to remind my friends who are elated today with the upcoming changes, that bragging and gloating is counterproductive. Any wise words you can share? You're so much more...

Lots of chat regarding "Oh, Brother," my latest podcast.

Caroline Sullivan Purcell writes...I do so enjoy reading/listening to your POV and had really hoped this would have been more uniting, but to juxtapose Lincoln's narrative with Trump's is mind boggling. I've no doubt you're familiar with both stories, and I've no doubt you can see that Trump isn't worthy of even licking the...
