Comedian, writer, and pictionary enthusiast Rekha Shankar, joins Caitlin to discuss the savant who destroyed the Press Your Luck game in 1984. Michael Larson single handedly brought down an entire network by simply being very focused, very obsessed, and very weird. His obsession over Press Your Luck won him $110,237 ($283,000 in today’s dollars) plus trips to the Bahamas, Kauai and a sailboat. Was it a scam, was it great work, or was it just too many TV’s?
Guest Rekha Shankar is currently writing for NBC’s Grand Crew, Animaniacs, and previously wrote on Magic for Humans, Astronomy Club, Aunty Donna’s House, and was selected in Just For Laughs: New Faces- Creators for 2020!
