Mike Oliva

President/Founder

Writer of “THE BLITZ” at MiamiDolphins.com each and every day during the Miami Dolphins season. Growing up during the “Marino-Era” had me hooked on this team since I was a child and I have never looked back. As a life-long die-hard fan of the Miami Dolphins I only can count down the days until this team wins a Super Bowl during my lifetime. I entered the Dolphins Fan-Site business back in 2001 and was interviewed and had a write-up on my then site in the South Florida Sun-Sentinel in 2003 by NFL Reporter Alex Marvez about when I recruited Ricky William’s mother, Sandy Williams, to be a contributor on my then website. After the 2004 season, I took a long break from running a Miami Dolphins fan-site and then started DolphinsTalk.com up in 2011. Through my many connections with players, agents, media types, and front office personal and with the help of the tremendous staff that has come on board I have grown and guided  DolphinsTalk.com into the amazing website you see today. I am the creator of the DolphinsTalk.com Podcast which won the inaugural Webbie Award for best Miami Dolphins Podcast at Web Weekend XIV in 2017. I am the lead columnist and managing editor here on the website and a Host of the DolphinsTalk.com Daily Podcast, the most listened to daily Miami Dolphins podcast on the Internet.

From Syracuse, NY and have been a Dolphins fan since I was 6 yrs old watching Dan Marino. I’m a passionate diehard Dolphins fan no matter what. Want to see this team win the Super Bowl in my lifetime.

Ian Berger

Chief Brand Officer

I am a banker by day and a husband, father of two girls, and die-hard Miami Dolphins fan by night. I began rooting for the team during the 1985 season, and I have become more obsessed ever since. I became a season ticket holder during the 2012 season, and have not missed a game since (including preseason games). In addition to attending the NFL’s longest game in NFL history on September 9, 2018 (and staying until the very end), I also attended the Miami Miracle game in its entirety on December 9, 2018 and have attended a few away games as well.   I began writing and podcasting on various internet sites in 2015, and I continue to write opinion articles with an optimistic theme.  My 14 year old daughter recently asked me “why do you root for a team that always loses”? And my response was that one day, our Miami Dolphins will be winners again. And when that day comes, I’ll still be around rooting for them and we’ll have one heck of a party!!

Josh Katzker

Podcast Co-Host

My earliest memory of the Miami Dolphins is listening to my father swear at the TV while the team was being systematically dismantled by the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XIX. That late January evening was a life-changing event. All of five years old, I became a passionate fan and would remain one forever. Born and raised in South Florida, I lived through the glory years of Marino and the Marks Brothers and the ups and downs of the generations that have followed. The trends of the last 15 years or so of Miami Dolphins football led my brother and I to reformat our old general sports and wrestling podcast, “The Brothers of Destruction,” to be purely Miami Dolphins-focused. The result, “The Same Old Dolphins Show,” is much needed catharsis for both of us.

After graduating from the University of Central Florida (2017 NCAA Football National Champions – Go Knights!), I spent time in Central NY, Central Ohio, Phoenix, and Chicago before finally settling down just outside of Syracuse, NY where I now reside with my wife (a Seahawks fan) and 20-month old son, whose football loyalties remain divided.

When not agonizing over the Dolphins, I’m agonizing over the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Blackhawks, Miami Heat, Seattle Sounders, Manchester United, and professional wrestling. You can read my complaints and my takes on Twitter @AmplifiedtoRock.

Aaron Katzker

Podcast Co-Host

Aaron Katzker AKA Aaron the Brain (named for longtime heel wrestling manager Bobby Heenan) is a lifelong Dolphins fan (well… since he was about 5 years old in 1989). Growing up as a Dolphins fan in the 90’s breeded a certain amount of positivity about the team and an expectation that they would always be in the hunt. As the years went by, and playoff failures mounted, and the page turned to the new Millennium, and playoff failures turned into regular season disappointments, he gained a fair bit of skepticism, which he and his brother Josh carry with them into their bi-weekly podcast “The Same Old Dolphins Show”.
 
Aaron has previously written for Al’s Sports Blog and covered the Dolphins for Scout.com. He is also a graduate of Connecticut School of Broadcasting.

Marisa Marino

Podcast Co-Host

I was born in Coral Springs and grew up in Boca Raton, soaking in the Miami Dolphins culture of South Florida. Even though I’m no longer a resident, my love for the Miami Dolphins has remained steadfast since my early years.

Despite sharing a last name with the legendary Dan Marino, I want to clarify that there’s no familial relation, just a shared love for the team. However, my family has many unique connections to Dolphins history, starting with my grandfather being the best man at Manny Fernandez’s wedding, adding a personal touch to the iconic ’72 Dolphins era.

I’m beyond thrilled to be a part of the Dolphinstalk team, co-hosting engaging discussions every Tuesday night. When I’m not on the podcast, you’ll find me on my YouTube channel, “Aqua and Orange,” sharing my thoughts on Dolphins games with pre and post-game analyses.

With my lifelong admiration for the Dolphins and an eagerness to contribute my insights, I’m excited to bring my passion for the team to the DolphinsTalk community.
