WELCOME TO THE SHOW
My name is Steve Owens and I meet a lot of people; sometime in my travels, sometimes in my own home town. Several times (quite by accident), I have stumbled into what I consider to be fascinating stories. So after way too many got away, I decided to start recording them. Some of these conversations will be fascinating ONLY to me. Some will be fascinating to you too. In the end, I guess this podcast is just an excuse for me to get to travel, meet, and talk to more people. So if you are so inclined…

Take a walk with me down Fascination Street as I get to know stand up comedienne Lindsay Glazer. In this episode we talk about this modern day super hero who is a defense attorney by day and ALPHA BITCH comedian ay night! Lindsay tells us why she chose to be a lawyer, why she started a career in comedy, plus she tells us about the ongoing saga of her being sued by six time NBA champion Chicago Bull Scottie Pippen. Although this is a REAL, ongoing lawsuit, it is a very funny story when put through the Alpha Bitch prism. Lindsay has done a great job of roundly mocking this iconic athlete.
