Interview: Michael Aloisi (THE KILLER & I: A REALITY SERIES with Kane Hodder)

When did you decide to start a reality show with Kane?

It sort of came about by accident.  People loved the book/blog about our adventures and as we were planning out a book tour, where we would be gone for months on the road together, I thought it would be fun if we filled it.  I suggested this to Kane and from there, the idea started.

How has working with Kane influenced you?
