Tom Riles has made his career by turning bad situations into better situations. When his PA job was ending, Henry Winkler asked him to move to LA. He met his wife while they were busting fingers playing 16-inch softball. And on the day he learned his infant daughter would need heart surgery, he started the blog that became Life of Dad.
Join us as we discuss his new book MOM VS. DAD. 16 years as Ellen DeGeneres’s hype man, how improv comedy cultivates entrepreneurship, resisting bribery on the Point Pleasant boardwalk, and when John Krasinski taught him how to be Conan O’Brien’s script intern.
