Vince Kern Podcaster

Vince Kern inherited his desire for storytelling (and verbosity) from his dad and despite a family of teachers and mental health professionals wandered into a lengthy career as a technologist, journalist, newspaper editor, operations director and R&D director. He's been professionally published in every decade since 1980 and was once kicked out of gossip columnist Cindy Adams' penthouse apartment overlooking Central Park because he wouldn't give her his home phone number.

Following an unexpected break after a raucous Season 1 wrap-party lasting three days and causing them to miss last week’s show, The Friends In Wonder crew have been released on bail. While their sentence was reduced to community service because the judge and jury loved the podcast and wanted them out for a second season, FIW was ordered to take a break and develop even more and better shows. Never ones to run afoul of the law before, Joe and Vince humbly accepted the sentence without appeal. So, this much anticipated episode is a thank you and goodbye – for now – packed with the twists…
