Can Tom Barnard and Don Shelby share the same stage? We're about to find out.

The radio giant's podcast show will be available live starting 4 p.m. Tuesday--and he's got some heady company to mark the occasion.

BringMetheNews is now partnering with Barnard's podcast and, as part of the deal, he'll be joined live for the first 15 minutes of every show by either BMTN founder Rick Kupchella, Minnesota news veteran Amy Hockert or Shelby.

"Too many people base their opinions today on opinion," Shelby said. "We are going to base opinion on fact."

Barnard's podcast now receives more than 200,000 views a month.
