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…
Walk with me, down Fascination Street!
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.
