Last Friday, I was puttering away in my new office space in Rockefeller Center, getting ready to call it a day and head home for the weekend. Then my phone rang. It was Stephanie Ruhle.

I was scheduled to be on 11th Hour, Stephanie’s MSNBC show, on December 2nd, but one of the panelists for her weekly “Friday Nightcap” segment had just cancelled. Stephanie needed a last minute fill-in. Luckily, my office is literally across the street from NBC Studios. 

Among the highlights of doing the show that day was finally getting to meet the great William D. Cohan, Puck contributor and author of the newly published book about General Electric, Power Failure: The Rise and Fall of An American Icon.

A little favor…

This little blog, my social media nonsense and my occasional podcast run on elbow grease, midnight oil and the frequent bad idea. Access is totally free. Any help you can give so I can continue to produce content and keep the lights on would be immensely appreciated. There is a one-time support option or a recurring subscription through Patreon, which also features exclusive content like my one-man podcast ‘Hahn, Solo’. Thank you so much!!!
