The Yankee – The Cellarmaster

LingoMike Lingafelter is the Cellar Master and “The Yankee” of this virtual pub.

Mike has lived in the Chicago-land area for most of his life.

Some years ago, in the 80’s, cable TV came to St. Charles IL and the cable provider set up a local access studio, offering free training to those interested in learning how to do cable shows for the community. Mike jumped at the chance, and within two years had written, produced and directed more than eight shows, two of which had runs of about a year each.

Fast forward to 2004 when dart buddy and friend Phil Clark told Mike about this new thing that was taking off called Pod-casting.  After getting hooked on listening to many different podcasts, Mike started putting together small drop-ins for a couple of podcast shows.

Then one day Phil approached Mike with the idea of creating his own podcast and he asked Mike to be his co-host.  Always the behind-the-scenes guy, this was a big step for Mike, but he said yes, and The Brit and the Yankee was born.

Recently he changed his day job, and now it takes him out of town for extended periods, but whenever he is back he heads over to the Pub to record a show, and make sure the cellar is being kept in good order!
