This week (or should I say YEAR?) on the show, I had the blessing of speaking to the soap opera legend, Ian Buchanan and wow... what fun that was.  I was incredibly intimidated, possibly because I also realized I was speaking with Dick Tremayne from the early 90's ABC show, Twin Peaks. Who can't submit to the legendary smile and charms of everyone's favorite Dick?

Between his career in modeling, to the many times he's shifted from soap opera to soap opera (being killed off, etc), he's created a mythos that's hard to overcome.  

Ian is intently focused on his work currently on The Bold and The Beautiful as well as his desire to support a few different charities benefiting education for the poor as well as a cancer foundation. 

Ian is the real deal, and I'm just so happy to have met him.

I hope you'll enjoy as I stumble through the podcast and thankfully ended well.  That's really all I can say.
