While in high school Rishi Sharma started Heroes of The Second World War, a non-profit organization whose mission is to interview veterans of World War II. He started by biking around his city to interview veterans and three years later he has interviewed over 1,000 veterans from the Allied countries around the world.

A quick review of the new Quentin Tarantino film, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. Synopsis: it's great!

AUTHOR/JOURNALIST GREG PRATO returns to talk about his great new book, KING'S X: THE ORAL HISTORY. Its the definitive story about a great band, in the members' own words, along with a slew of hard rock luminaries. We also discuss Greg's next book, TAKE IT OFF: KISS TRULY UNMASKED, out November 19, 2019, which is all about when KISS was sans makeup, 1983-1996. PLUS, semi-coherent ramblings about the new season of Jerry Seinfeld's Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee and the great Gary Gulman's new comedy special, The Great Depresh, which will premiere on HBO this fall.
