Hey! Dan, Dave and Mark are three beeps to the wind and excited to sit down with the Prince of the Perfect Steak, the Hero of the Hammer X Putter - Mr. Beau Rials!

Call Now - 36 - A Conversation with Jan Muller

It must be Christmas in July because Janta Clause is coming to Call Now town! The boys had the chance to speak with legendary Pitchman, and Call Now Hall of Famer, Jan Muller! If you’ve made it this far in the copy then we can safely assume you love the PaintStick episode (you’re very smart), same for our 25th Episode Pitch People discussion (you’re also incredibly good-looking) and three-fold for our conversation with Stan Jacobs (check please). Find out everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Jan the man and the four-plus decades he’s spent letting people know all the ways they can mix things up at home. Find out how he made his way from bus tickets to the fair, to driving a family caravan nationwide pitch tour (Great Dane included), all the way to his current seat at the top of Blender Mountain as the on-air face of the Vitamix. As a special bonus - Jan and the boys play a little infomercial history trivia!
