Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Mary Astors biggest role was Brigid OShaughnessy. Brigid was the love interest of Sam Spade played by Humphrey Bogart in the film, the Maltese Falcon.

But Mary Astor is most famous for what happened off screen and was recorded in her diary. Ed Sorel brings her story to life in the book he wrote and illustrated, Mary Astors Purple Diary: The Great American Sex Scandal of 1936.

I also speak with a young minister, who at the age of 37 was diagnosed with a form of cancer usually reserved for men in their 60s and 70s. Jason Michele tells his story in his book, Cancer is Funny: Keeping Faith In Stage Serious Chemo.

Ed Sorel, Caricaturist and Jason Micheli, Minister
