Freddy Rivera is an FM radio DJ at KOLA 99.9 in Riverside, California, host of the “Radio Flyer” podcast, and a pilot! He’s a SoCal guy I knew from my iHeartRadio days. We'd run into each other as I worked for KFI and he was producing for JoJo on the Radio on 102.7 KIIS FM, and then he rocked overnights on the legendary station. He moved to Dallas to host afternoons on 102.9 Now KDMX but as we talk about in this episode it just wasn't the right fit. Freddy and I also discuss mental health, gratitude, accepting and acknowledging failure is a part of success, and rolling with the punches.
