Chris Gardner (Episode #204H)

KQED 9: Mon, Feb 9, 2009 -- 7:30 PM

It's a phenomenal story that proves truth is stranger than fiction. Chris Gardner overcame an incredibly rough childhood, wound up a homeless single father on the streets of San Francisco, yet later managed to make a killing on Wall Street and open his own highly successful brokerage. How did he do it? Josh finds out when Chris reveals some of the compelling stories from his memoir "The Pursuit of Happyness", soon to be released as a major motion picture starring Will Smith.
And Josh will wander to Glide Memorial Church - the safe haven in the heart of the Tenderloin where Chris once got a helping hand. Josh serves meals in the soup kitchen, auditions for the famous Glide choir, and has a one-on-one chat with the inspirational Rev. Cecil Williams.

Actor Delroy Lindo (Episode #217H)

KQED 9: Mon, Feb 16, 2009 -- 7:30 PM

In the recent independent film Wondrous Oblivion, actor Delroy Lindo got back to his roots by portraying a Jamaican cricket star raising a family in 1950's London. During his chat with Josh, Delroy talks about why this coming-of-age indie meant so much to him and contrasts the experience with his work on Hollywood blockbusters. The Oakland based actor also tells us how he's taking on one of his most challenging roles yet - as director of the new drama Blue Door at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre.
