Interview with Michael Pearlman of Charles in Charge

Show notes: Good guy. You'll probably see me write that about a lot of guests, but the truth is, most of the people who agree to do interviews with me are. What was very cool about Michael though, was that he clearly took the time to check out the site and see and hear what it was all about before making a decision. A lot of people won't make that effort.

All I really want from a guest is enthusiasm and hopefully a good memory. Michael came through with both, which is pretty good considering he was 12 when he played Jason Pembroke on Charles in Charge. He had good insight on the show, a fun behind the scenes story that involved cast members of other well known sitcoms, and good details that I'd never heard before about what everybody wants to know...why the Powells replaced the Pembrokes. What more can you ask if you're a Charles in Charge fan? He even gave the podcast a little mention on his site.

If you haven't already, have a listen. Then make sure to check out Michael's blog, "Generation Recreation." He's a very talented writer and has a great way of making you feel like you have a personal stake in each of his stories.
