Ep46 The Master Storyteller Has Laid Down His Pen

March 2nd, 2020

Best selling author Clive Cussler passed away this week at the age of 88. Author of over 80 novels featuring underwater and automotive adventures, he is considered to be one of the greatest writers of the 20th and 21st centuries. Both Keith and Johnny Orange are fans of Cussler and will miss his writings. We say our goodbyes. 

Also, the iconic Detroit area "Major Magic's" chain of family restaurants has returned from the dead after a decade with the help of a museum. We discuss why museums are relevant today, and why you should consider supporting the new model of institution.
