The Nice Guys on Business
Here's where it all got started. In 2015 Doug and Strick cranked up their microphones for the first time as The Nice Guys. Today, their podcast has exploded on the podcasting space, being awarded iTunes covetedNew and Noteworthy status in their first month of podcast production and more recently one of Inc.'s 12 Podcasts That Will Make You A Better Leader. Since then, The Nice Guys have produced over 425 episodes, with nearly one million downloads. Their interviews are a who's who of the business and pop-culture world including digital media guru Gary Vaynerchuk, Arianna Huffington and many more. They don't just have fans, they have funknfans that follow their every move on social media and on air. If you want to laugh while you learn, see why the funknfans are so crazy for The Nice Guys.

President and Production Expert
Strickland Bonner is the co-host of The Nice Guys on Business and co-founder of Turnkey Podcast. By day, he geeks out as a 9-to-5 data analyst and report expert (yep, he's a numbers guy who loves to crunch data and solve problems for his organization). Blessed with dynamic teenage triplet daughters, he's a proud father who loves his family dearly. But what you may not know about him is that he recently celebrated his 25-year retirement from playing guitar and singing in the variety band Black Tie. When he's not busy producing new shows for Turnkey Podcast clients and publishing five episodes a week of The Nice Guys on Business, he occasionally likes to eat and sleep. (Oh, and don’t try to connect with him on Twitter—he's working hard on his New Year's resolution to be less active on social media. Facebook knows all though—bump into him in the Nice Guys Community and say hi.)
Anna Nygren is the brilliant Show Producer of the Nice Guys on Business and is currently pursuing a Graphic Design degree at Arizona State. Her marketing experience and writing skills connects TurnKey's client to their desired audience with flare. Her friends describe her as a bold and sassy woman that's going to run the world one day. You can get on her good side by buying her Iced Skinny Vanilla Lattes and telling her how funny she is.
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 FunkNfan 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!
Danielle (Dani) is a hardworking, free-thinking, problem-solving millennial who encountered the Nice Guys world by being at the right place at the right time. Serendipitous? Abso-freakin-lutely! As an adventure-seeker and hula hoop queen, Dani took a leap of faith and dove into the podcast universe head first... and hasn’t looked back since. When she’s not working on podcast production, she can be found daydreaming about her superpower of stopping time, kicking anyone’s butt at Monopoly as the beloved thimble (like there’s a better piece?!), or traveling to exotic places (Did we mention she loves to vacation?). Having the flexibility and independence of working on podcast production means you'll never know where in the world Dani is—and she loves that! Catch her if you can on Instagram @Hurdle_girl21 or listen to her podcast Millennial to CEO, airing March 1, 2018.
Social Media intern
Christopher is a college undergrad majoring in Communication at Cornell University. In Fall 2017, Lou Diamond spoke to his class and was hiring interns for his podcast. As a Lou Diamond-reject, he was referred to Doug and The Nice Guys on Business! He runs The Nice Guys Instagram and Twitter pages (@NiceGuysonBiz) by posting images, videos, and pretty much anything he feels like because let’s face it, Doug and Strick aren’t checking anyway! Though he is the youngest of the group, you certainly couldn’t tell by his consistent tie-adorned dress code for weekly team production calls. You can track his aventuras (Spanish for “adventures“) on Instagram (@Chris23Morales).
Nancy Del Mar Rodriguez
Nancy's middle name is Del Mar, so, naturally, she's obsessed with the ocean. As an LA woman that spends most of her free time walking Venice beach with aviators, she's lead to believe that she's most likely the reincarnation of Jim Morrison. She loves watching sports, mostly fútbol. An avid fan of The Killers, she essentially offers them free promotion as she always does her best to influence people to buy and listen to their music. On Sundays, she enjoys staying home and unwinding with a cup of almond milk as she watches Nascar. As a communication major at Cornell, she foremost loves interacting with people, and that probably means she talks too much! Nancy is also a big advocate of animals, specifically, pet adoption. In 2017, she toured her hometown, giving presentations on the benefits of rescuing animals from pet shelters. Her motto is "If you can, please adopt. If you can't, tell a friend."
