Scott Sanders
Scott was 17 years old, sitting in the back seat of a NYC taxi cab with Joan Baez, Dennis Hopper and Phil Ochs. With a simple twist of fate Bob Dylan suddenly sprawls across Scott's lap, looks him in the eye, and asks a very personal question.

In "Fattening Up the Dogs," Justina recounts her brief foray into international diplomacy during a ride in a dump truck with a culturally diverse crew of construction workers.

Dwayne Hunn
Dwayne tells a few slightly strange stories about a big bad bear, a soaring eagle, a simple PC idea – meaning both “Politically Correct" and "Peace Corps-ish” -- and a Fuller Better Investment in a world that wishes it could dance and drink more with Lady Harmony
