Peter Engel

Peter Engel was the executive producer of “Saved By The Bell” and shares many stories from his long showbiz career in “I Was Saved By the Bell: Stories of Life, Love and Dreams That Do Come True.”  We discussed why the show still resonates with the generation who grew up with it (and why the current generation relates to it as well) and how it was the first show to address real, basic teenage issues.   Peter also shared a fascinating story about almost being the producer of a late night talk show starring John Lennon!

Dick Cavett

It was an honor to speak with legendary TV host Dick Cavett about his new book “Brief Encounters: Conversations, Magic Moments and Assorted Hijinks.”  We had a fun conversation about comedy writing, cultural references, and why people hear his voice in their heads.  Toward the end of the interview, he complimented me on my hosting skills.  That specific quote is immediately going on my resume.

How does this look?
