In this all new Season One episode of Our Town, host Andy Ockershausen takes a walk back in time with bon vivant, raconteur and man about town, Bill Regardie. Bill looks back on his humble beginnings in “Our Town”, how he came to start and own one of the most successful Washington DC magazines during the 80s – Regardie’s Magazine. He also discusses his involvement as co-owner of New Homes Guide and Housing Data Reports. As Regardie’s story unfolds you’ll find that he was academically challenged until he received a tip from his wife, Renay. If you continue to listen Regardie reveals the helpful tip in his interview. Regardie also gives us insight into his journey as a disgruntled waiter slinging hash in a New Jersey kosher restaurant through being fired from 11 of the 13 jobs that followed.
The statement “I have my own way of doing things.” rings so blatantly true, and you’ll know what I mean when you hear some of the stories that Regardie reveals in this episode. You’ll find him funny, scary at times and so clearly honest, that you’ll come to understand why he’s been so successful.
Regardie also shares with Andy some inside stories of some of the most powerful people in Washington. Take a listen, you may hear some things in this Our Town episode that you won’t hear anywhere else.
