Always keep searching your heart for the answers and take some chances in your life.

Likeable is the best word to describe Michael J. Fox. He is also one of the most energetic actors I have ever seen. He came into our living rooms every Thursday evening as Alex P.

He recently announced his retirement from acting. So sad. We hope you miss the work and come back for more someday. Learn more about Lewis in The Actors Room.


Ep24 - The Unabomber

Ted Kaczynski was captured by the FBI after the longest Manhunt in history. They called him the Unabomber. Ted struck fear into the nation by delivering boxes by mail that contained bombs within. His distrust of the government and disdain for technology were the driving force in his mind to execute his deliveries. I dive into the show Manhunt: The Unabomber because it influence me to do this episode about Ted Kaczynski.


Ep23 - The Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns were once a proud franchise delivering several championships to its dedicated fans. There was a resurgence in the 1980's behind quarterbacks Brian Sipe and Bernie Kosar, but the team fell short of their dream of making it to the Super Bowl. The franchise moved in 1994 when owner Art Modell decided that Baltimore would be the teams new home. Since the Browns return in 1999 there has been nothing but heartache for the fans. I rant and rave about the current state of my...

Ep20 - Chris Farley

Chris Farley is one of the funniest people I have ever seen. His personality was larger than life and it showed in his comedy. Saturday Night Live and Chris Farley were meant to be together. The characters that Chris created were indeed trademarks in the mid 1990's. He struggled with addiction and it ultimately got him in the end, but he left us some great memories. There are also many stories of Chris growing up in Wisconsin that are discussed in this episode. Join me and learn more about...
