Dr. Will Miller
Long time friend of the show, Dr. Will Miller, is an ordained minister, former standup comedian, keynote speaker, teacher and full-time therapist at a major University, yet somehow he still finds time to write books including Why We Watch and Refrigerator Rights (the latter of which has just recently been re-released with an all new chapter and updated research.) He's also the formorst expert on how classic television secretly revals the inner stuggles in all of us. Meaning, while you watch shows like "Mr. Ed" and "Bewitched" to get a few laughs, he's looking to find out what's going on in that messed up brain of yours. Follow Dr. Will on twitter.
Voices of the Sixties
Tom Brokaw began his relationship with the American Public back in 1976 as the anchor of NBC's daily morning show, Today before eventually moving down the hall to become the sole anchor and managing editor of NBC Nightly News. He kept that post until 2004 when he gave up his news desk to new anchor Brian Williams, but that wasn't the end of Tom Brokaw . Instead he became a part time special reporter, temporary host of Meet the Press and the author or five best-selling books including The Greatest Generation. His most recent book, Boom!: Voices of the Sixties, was just released in paperback, and includes a new DVD of his documentary from The History Channel.
Scott Dunn is a stand-up comedian, a novelist, a father of two, and a husband of one. He's also a full-time history buff, and famous for his roasts of famous historical figures and events. He also occasionally calls in with History Lessons and Quizes, which means if you see his name on the guest board, you'd better start studying. In his spare time (when he's got any) he writes jokes for a number of shows including "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader." And that's a little bit about Scott Dunn.
