I didn’t know the half of it

I met Steve in 2009, but didn’t really become close with him until about 2014. I’ve known the general outline of this story for years, but then always got the “it’s a really long, crazy story. I’ll tell you sometime.” I’m so glad he finally put this into podcast form, because I didn’t even know a FRACTION of the story. And truthfully I was also starting to not believe it actually WAS a crazy story. But I’m here to tell you that it IS. Whether you know Steve personally and have heard the gist of this story, or are just curious about what this weird side of Hollywood is like, do yourself a favor and spend a few hours with Steve and Josh. You won’t regret it.
