There are some people who influence your life profoundly without you even realizing it. For some, the influence is undeniable. Bill Murray, Mel Brooks, Robin Williams... you get that. You understand that they are part of your lives.
But what about those who aren't so much in the forefront. The people who are responsible for the movies that made up your childhood, but who were in a position that didn't put them in the forefront.
Enter Harold Ramis. Yes, he was an actor. Yes, you recognized him instantly, or not. He was always there, and you knew he was important.
This week we look into just HOW important he was. Join us as we talk about a man who made a habit of writing the funniest movies ever made.
