ABC’s Shark Tank added even more bite with the full-time addition of investor Mark Cuban this season. The outspoken Dallas Mavericks owner is not afraid to pick business battles with entrepreneurs…or the other Sharks. They may not like it, but viewers like myself simply can’t get enough. Now, Cuban brings that same intensity to the InsideTV Podcast as the investor extraordinaire calls in to discuss the ins and outs of the Tank. How many of his deals actually go through when all is said and done? What’s the one deal he regrets not making? What’s one of the biggest mistakes entrepreneurs make when they try to strike a deal? And whom is he talking about when he says, “I love crushing those people.” It’s Mark Cuban unleashed, as the magnate-turned-owner-turned-TV-star reveals all.

Not only that, but Cuban also weighs in on his former Dallas Mavericks summer-league player Jeremy Lin. Is Lin over-hyped because he plays in New York? And what’s the one thing about the way Lin is playing that has his former boss a bit worried? Listen in and find out!
