The Lineup

| E:22

When I was 10 years old I spent a summertime at a makeshift daycare. One afternoon there, while playing Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out on NES, I committed an unintentional crime which was followed by a memorable interrogation. *Note: This episode is a throwback. In fact, it was the first “7 minute story” I ever recorded. My producer Ken helped re-purpose it for this format. Enjoy!
