The Nice Guys

When we first came up with the idea to host a podcast, we had no clue what were doing. Over 500 episodes and 1 million plus downloads later, we know now exactly how clueless we really were. We cannot believe what The Nice Guys on Business has become.  In February of 2015 I approached my longtime buddy Strickland, because I knew we had good chemistry and could deliver a healthy dose of shenanigans. Plus, we knew we  could talk longer than it took paint to dry. From day one we knew we had our hands on something fun, entertaining, educational. And totally warped. Along with our Nice Guys Community of supporters including our hardcore “FunknFans,” we continue to expand our ideas and bring our spin on what it takes to be successful in business and in life. Together, along with our amazing team,  Strick and I bring you 5 episodes a week of interviews, fuckery and a boatload of business lessons. Our show is not for the proper, politically correct, or those with a weak constitution, and we won’t apologize for dropping the f-bomb or any other four-letter word. We do however, promise to add value to your day and hopefully teach you a thing or two. Some of this stuff  we are figuring out as we go along, just like life is supposed to be. We interview entrepreneurs, thought leaders, and experts in social media, business development, crowdfunding, marketing, customer service, crowd sourcing, and so much more. If you are an entrepreneur, opening a business, or already running a business, The Nice Guys on Business can help you do better. You don’t have to be a jerk to run a successful business. Excited to have you as a part of our Nice Guys Community. Welcome to The Nice Guys.

Strickland Bonner

Strickland Bonner’s company Podcast Production 4 You provides audio production for The Nice Guys on Business as well as many other podcasts. He works a 9-5 job as a Report and Data Analyst, performs 50-55 times a year playing guitar in the variety band Black Tie and has triplet daughters. Between all of that and publishing 5 episodes a week of The Nice Guys on Business, he occasionally likes to eat and sleep.

Anna V. Nygren - Show Producer

Anna Nygren is a 20-something carving out a career path and trying not to forget to smile every once in a while. She writes our brilliant show notes every episode, 5 episodes a week for no pay whatsoever. Simply on the merits of that, Doug and Strickland think she should be put up for sainthood, although we have no idea what her religious beliefs are. As of the date of this writing, neither Doug nor Strickland have ever met Anna in person. We hope to remedy that sometime in 2017.


Mar England - Executive Producer

Mariko (aka “Mar”) fell in love with The Nice Guys on Business Podcast during her ridiculously boring 2.5-hour daily commute because of Doug and Strickland’s unapologetic corny jokes and witty banter, sprinkled between informative business conversations. As a raving Funk'Nfan with a background in content marketing, SEO, social media marketing, and PPC for B2B tech companies, Mar helps keep the Nice Guys focused. She accidentally stumbled on the executive producer role after she booked several guest interviews for Doug and Strickland. When she’s not listening to podcasts, you can find her running, reading, bowling, eating, and writing poetry. Say hi to her on Twitter @marikokoloco and share your favorite book recommendation!
