One Iowa comedian says he turns to his uncommon experiences growing up for his profession. Host Ben Kieffer talks with comedian and author, Nathan Timmel, about his memoir “I Was a White Knight…Once.”

Then, listen back to excerpts from Ben’s conversation with Lauren Reece Flaum, who died this month after living with breast cancer for 17 years. In 2008, Redbook magazine asked its readers to submit their stories about living with breast cancer and Flaum beat out thousands of entries to win the contest.
