Jun 15, 2017

Niche Podcast highlights people in Reno with unique passions and hobbies, including Paul Mitchell. He's a journalism professor at the University of Nevada, Reno, but he's also a Hot Wheels fiend.

Host Joey Lovato recently chatted with Mitchell to learn more about his growing collection and how he’s not alone in this endeavor.

“My best buddy out here, I met him in the toy aisle of Target,” Mitchell said. “We actually go to club meetings, and most of the folks who attend these meetings are adults. I mean, they are hardcore collectors.”

Niche is produced at the Reynolds School of Journalism where Lovato is a student.
