338: The Spokesman

Aug 10, 2007
Attention listeners. In the Internet version of Act One of this show, we have left one curse word un-bleeped at a critical moment.

Stories of what can happen when you go from being a private person to a public face.
  • David Iserson tried to lay low in junior high, staying out of sight to keep from getting teased and bullied. But then he starred in a local TV commercial for his father's furniture store (Quicktime, 2.4 MB), and all of a sudden everyone knew about him...in a bad way. Classmates would quote his lines back to him and snicker. Random people would see him on the street and start laughing. (9 minutes) TeenagersTelevision
