The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe

Mike takes a deep dive into the nature of authenticity, with help from Sean McCourt – former Broadway actor, After the Catch producer, and TWIHI contributor. Sean also happens to be the father of Charlotte, the 11 year-old Girl Scout made famous by her blisteringly honest critique of the cookies she was trying to sell to her Daddy’s wealthy friend. A critique that unleashed a media blitz for which Mike accepts most of the blame. It's a rumination of action, inaction, and the squishy middle in between.
