    #013: Ted Ishler

    One of the biggest moments in Ted Ishler's life happened in a restroom. Ted was fresh out of college and had just gotten a job as a tour guide at the NBC Television studios in New York City. Ted was standing in the NBC men's room, when in walked David Letterman, who gave him a nod and proceeded to a neighboring urinal. In a strange way, Ted knew he had made it.  
    Thankfully, most of the other big moments in Ted's career have happened outside the bathroom. Ted has been a staff comedy writer for Candid Camera, a writer on The Joker’s Wild game show, won an Emmy Award for comedy feature reporting (at KSHB-TV Kansas City, and KTRK-TV Houston), and was award-winning creative director/writer/producer at networks including Ovation TV, Pac12 Network and local stations in Phoenix, Milwaukee and San Diego.  
    Ted and his wife Beth, a former Days of Our Lives actress, now host a podcast called ‘How Are We Still Married?!’ that takes a comic look at their 35 years of marriage and 35 moves across the country! They tell the crazy stories of their life together.

    #012: Q&A with The Pense Boys

    In this special episode, I invited my boys to talk about the past, present and future. It's always fun to connect with your kids at any time in their lives. But as they grow into adults, it becomes even more meaningful because they bring a new perspective. It's fun to validate memories and talk about the story of our lives. It's good for the soul.

    #011: Brian Williams

    From his earliest memories, Brian Williams knew he was adopted. It was simply a part of who he was, and in fact made him feel special. As time passed, naturally Brian started to have thoughts and questions about this known, yet mysterious part of his life. And when he began having some health issues later in life, his sisters bought him a DNA kit and soon after discovering the results, a whole new world expanded right before his eyes. 

    In this episode Brian shares his story of adoption and how the process of finding his birth mother filled in the missing pieces he didn't even know existed.
