“I would fly us clear across the world if we need to. To Thailand or wherever we want to go. If we’re gonna try to get some young kids with us it would be a lot easier,” the married father of two told Rochelle Herman-Walrond, a former Florida journalist who had befriended Fogle so she could expose his sexual abuse of children.
The recordings and an interview with Herman-Walrond are scheduled to be aired Thursday and Friday on the “Dr. Phil” show.
At one point, she asked him about being with children.
“I had a little boy. It was amazing,” the 38-year-old Fogle said. “It just felt so good. I mean, it felt — it felt so good.”
She also asked him which he preferred — young girls or young boys.
“Both of them,” he answered, according to audio posted on the show’s Web site.
Fogle even asked her disturbing questions about her own kids.
“Are there any of your kids’ friends that you think are pretty hot? What if we put a camera in your kids’ room, would they be OK with that?” he said.
A disgusted Herman-Walrond told Dr. Phil she came to view herself as a victim as well after enduring the lurid interviews.
“I had to be two separate people in order to continue on with this investigation,” she said.
Herman-Walrond first met Fogle in 2006 when he was a guest on her radio show and he shocked her by saying middle-school girls were “hot.” She subsequently taped the conversations that she later turned over to the FBI, leading to criminal charges against Fogle and his ouster as Subway’s rep.
Fogle paid out $1 million to 10 of his 14 victims after pleading guilty to child-pornography and sex-crime charges. He faces between 5 and 12¹/₂ years behind bars.
His wife, Katie, filed for divorce shortly after the scandal erupted.
