I asked Brad the 10 With Tom questions. Here they are:
TOM: I see you were one of the entertainers at Barbara Bush's 90th birthday party. What did you do to entertain the guests?
BRAD: The only thing I know how to do: Tell stories.
TOM: Who would you rather be Batman or Superman? Why?
BRAD: Batman. He’ll never win. He’ll never stop crime. He’ll never bring back his dead parents. But he’ll never stop fighting. Superman is who we wish we were, but Batman is who we know we really are. We all fight a losing battle every day. But we never stop.
TOM: I watch "Lost History," your History H2 show. If only one piece of lost history could be found, which would you prefer it be?
BRAD: The 9/11 flag. That’s the one.
NOTE: Good news! Looks like the flag was finally located thanks to Brad's determination!
TOM: Favorite junk food?
BRAD: Ice cream. Scooped ice cream at Haagen Dazs for four years. Still never tire of it.
TOM: Which comic strip would you love to jump into and spend the day?
BRAD: Calvin & Hobbes.
TOM: Last show you binge watched?
BRAD: Stranger Things.
TOM: Word of the moment
TOM: I was hesitant to ask why.
TOM: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
TOM: Last book you read, other than your own.
BRAD: Southern Bastards by Jason Aaron.
TOM: What did you have for breakfast today?
BRAD: Blueberries and granola. But I tell my brain it’s Count Chokula.
Thanks, Brad! See you at St. Stephen's!
