Evan shares with us the poetry that has inspired him, the story of marching in Selma with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and how he helped the Cleveland jazz scene spread from its humble beginnings. How did walking a tiger on a leash get him started in TV? What goes on inside the mind of a fly fisherman? What are "the bends"? Why are Alex and Molly fighting?
