EP 15: Trentonians, Assemble!
Will Foskey is not "politically correct". He's not a "people pleaser". He's not a "sycophant", a "Yes-Man", or a "butt kisser". He's a bit of a nerd, a movie and film Aficionado, a master at his craft, and is a leader. We here at Trenton Waves consider him a good friend and we wish there were more like him.

THE BEST episode so far! What seemed like just another episode of the Trenton Waves podcast is actually something much bigger. Early last week, Trenton Waves posted a picture of Will Foskey and Trenton Waves host Frank Sasso wearing Avengers-related apparel and standing in front of what appeared to be, the Iron Man lab at Stark Industries. The image was titled, "Trentonians, Assemble!" Arriving on the heels of Avengers Endgame, it really caught my attention. This particular episode hadn't even been posted yet, and yet it was all I could think about. Was Will going to be Will or was he going to be a little held back for the sake of the podcast. Will delivered but it was a Will that was a little different. He wasn't holding back from his normal energy, but he let us hear a more vulnerable side of his persona. The part when he shared his vision for a fireworks show over the Trenton Makes was the highlight for me. Trenton Waves gave this man a platform on this episode that I've rarely heard people give others - it was almost as if Frank Sasso asked him questions he knew would get a response from Will. What started off sounding like a movie review transformed into one of the most memorable and meaningful conversations about Trenton, NJ that I have ever heard. It's also incredibly entertaining, filled with timely clowning-around, the Avengers theme playing at during one part while they're talking, Frank Sasso's crazy Boston accent, and the commanding way they both called Trentonians out by almost demanding we assemble and take our positions. I'm ashamed to say it, but I was starting to lose hope in this city, but I felt proud of my city again after listening to this episode. Thank you Will and Trenton Waves for re-lighting my Trenton flame and for reminding me of the "Trenton hustle".

I LOVE how Will Foskey made the Avengers like Trentonians! "The bad guys get together but the heroes don't and we have to find ways to get out of our own way". God, I love that! Greatest interview yet! Keep up the great work!

What I really like about this show is that the host(s) AND the guests don't assume airs. They're REAL. Frank and Will sound like old friends and as a result, made me, the listener, feel comfortable. Typical guys talking about superheros not caring we're interested or not, I just love it. THEN, the way Will masterfully weaves the Avengers topic into a challenge for all residents of Trenton. I can say that this episode really touched me and showed me myself. I'm going to start taking my city more seriously instead of complaining about it. I'm going to look in the Around Town section on the website here and see what I can start investing my time in. Thank you Will Foskey for being real and not worrying about people's feelings.

"If the white people are moving here, why are we leaving?" Classic.

Another excellent episode in the life and times of a legendary Trentonian! As just one of the many, many people trying to do their part for our city, it's so uplifting to hear someone like Will be consistently positive, without being superficial or trite, about Trenton. He reminds us we're not alone in the day-to-day struggle for growth. Nice stuff, Trenton Waves!!

I echo everyone here. This episode really re-sparked my fire for the Capital city. I really admire these guys and the entire podcast. I like when Frank and Christina are on together because they really balance each other out but they're great doing solo interviews too. Anyway, just want to give my opinion. Great show. PLEASE keep it up. We really need a show like this in Trenton.

Frank Sasso sound cool as hell. I thought the dude was black. Brother Will all up saying the way it is though. This podcast is cool as hell.

OMG. These guys should do an additional show together. Amazing content, great timing, fun chemistry, and each compliment and builds on what each other are saying in such a way that is not only encouraging to me the listener, but makes me just want to be a part of whatever they're doing. It felt like the show lasted 15 minutes. I was shocked when I looked at the end time being over 55 minutes!! Really great. Loved every second of it.Really, really loved it!

I'm with Deshawn. Foskey and Sasso are the shit! I never met Sasso but he's like the coolest white dude I ever heard. Foskey talks to him like he a brother! This podcast is the shit.

Wow, this podcast came out of nowhere and is doing some real damage to the podcast airwaves in terms of originality and fervor. Being in radio here in Des Moines, I am impressed with the quality of the production, (intro outro), the fact that they have sponsors, but also how the interviews are done. I call it the "fly on the wall" technique. It's like the listener is doing just that -- listening in without the interview really acknowledging them. The hosts have mastered the art of "innocent conversation" without making it sound like question, answer, question, answer.

Love getting me some Will, and now this guy Frank. This is my new fav show, I listened to the first half going to work and the second half coming home! I can't wait to listen to the other episodes now. Damn, this is good.
