Episode 396 - A Conversation with Michael Emerson

In the first of perhaps many crossovers between Comic News Insider and Stated Magazine (Jimmy is the Pop Culture Contributing Editor), Jimmy invites his old pal Michael Emerson (Lost, Person of Interest) into his new abode for a lengthy and all inclusive conversation. As loyal CNI listeners know, Michael has been on the podcast several times during his years on Lost. This time, they chat about Michael's upbringing, his first interest in theater, moving to NYC to pursue acting, giving it up, moving to Jacksonville, Florida (where he and Jimmy met) and having his passion reignited and moving back to NYC to jump start it all again! Even Jimmy learns things he didn't know! (A marching band?!) Sit back and enjoy this more serious but still laid back and fun conversation with Michael Emerson!
