Dick DeBartolo is a cultural icon. He’s best known as a writer for Mad magazine, which he first contributed to in 1961. The following year he was hired as a writer on The Match Game, a popular TV game show.

58 years later DeBartolo is still in broadcasting, but not as a writer, as an on-air guest talking about gadgets.

His popular podcast is called Giz-Wiz.

WBGO’s Jon Kalish caught up with him recently to talk about the popular podcast and why he's enjoying it so much.
