Back to School

Mein fuher, I get no respect.In this episode of the Daedalus Howell Show, we go back to school – or at least I do – literally. As a freshman in 1986, French and drama teacher Madame Wadsworth suspended me for a bawdy stage production of Dr. Strangelove. 20 years later, I reunited with (as we affectionately referred to her) “The Wad” to chat about the aftermath. Also, I try to track down actor Keith Gordon who Starred opposite Rodney Dangerfield in the comedy flick Back to School, only to learn he directed a film based on a novel by mine and author pal Eric Spitznagel’s hero Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. (producer Alex Freeman assists).
