#83 Rick Sebak

#83 Rick Sebak

FINALLY!!!!   Not many of you know this, but I have been trying to get Rick Sebak on my show since day one.  Our schedules have never synced up, until now, and I am so glad we waited, because it is pure gold.

If you grew up in Pittsburgh, you knew his voice, and later spotted him around town.  For those that don’t know him, Rick is a highly skilled director, producer, and writer for WQED Pittsburgh.  His signature “scrapbook documentaries” have been copied across the country, but never duplicated.  His Kickstarter “Nebby” is going on now to build funds for 6 new videos highlighting Pittsburgh.  We want that to happen, so make sure you head over, and donate to help us bring that to life!

Rick has a certain way of showcasing the people, and history of Pittsburgh that is hard to put into words, so I am not going to try, if you have seen him, you know exactly what I mean.  I will tell you, however, that we had a lovely conversation about his history, his story, Pittsburgh’s food scene, and how he came to be THE man of Pittsburgh.

This is by far one of my longest episodes, because it was a wonderful conversation we didn’t want to end.  We laughed, I almost cried, we talk Rick’s fear of ghosts ;), compare our Pittsburgh accents, and eat some pie, it was perfect.  Rick even has me take the CBS announcer test, which I think I passed!  Make sure you listen all the way to the end, because Rick reads a gorgeous poem written in 1924 about Pittsburgh, and I really do tear up, thank goodness this is audio only.

Subscribers to my newsletter get access to unpublished content.  This time, it includes Rick playing the game of Accents with Marta On The Move, it was hilarious, and he nailed it!  I can’t wait to have him back on the show, this time for a meeting of the minds with John Schalcosky.  It is sure to be greatness.  Stay tuned!  Big thanks to folks for sending in their questions for Rick!
