Growing up in Roxbury, MA, Marty Nolan learned the ins and outs of the city he would go onto cover, developing a working-class style of journalism that had yet to develop in American newspapers. From 1961 to 2001, Nolan covered nearly all topics, but found a home covering politics. He was part of a team that won a Pulitzer Prize in 1966 and became one of the lead reporters at the Globe in Washington, D.C. during the Johnson and Nixon presidencies.

This week, Harry and Tim sit down with Brian Volk-Weiss, President of Comedy Dynamics, the largest independent producer of one-hour comedy specials in the U.S. Growing up in Queens, Brian knew what he wanted to do from a very young age after finding himself captivated by "Star Wars." After his first viewing, Brian thought the movie was a documentary, and was determined to become a Jedi. Although he quickly learned the truth, Brian never let go of the creative spark that "Star Wars" left him with, following the impetus to create first into directing and then into producing, working every job in between along the way. Brian broke through as a manager of comedians, most notably Dane Cook, before moving into producing with New Wave Entertainment and now Comedy Dynamics. Tune in for Brian's story, which he tells with humility and a unique sense of humor.

This week on How I Got Here, Harry and Tim sit down with musician and activist Pegi Young as she promotes her new album "Raw," written and recorded in the wake of her divorce from the musician Neil Young. Pegi was a free spirit from a young age, leaving her childhood home in Northern California at 17 and setting off on a trip through Canada to Vermont, before returning to Northern California to live on a commune. Several years later, she met Neil, which sent her off on a new whirlwind journey, touring the country while balancing the rock n' roll lifestyle with raising three children. Pegi found a calling of sorts when, inspired by her son Ben, who was born with cerebral palsy, she founded The Bridge School, an educational foundation tailored towards helping children with physical and speech impairments. In 2007, Pegi launched a solo music career of her own, releasing several well-received albums, including the emotional new record "Raw."

On this week's episode, Harry and Tim sit down with revolutionary chef Jeremiah Tower for one of the most interesting and surprising episodes of How I Got Here to date. Jeremiah walks through his somewhat aimless journey across three continents, including a stint studying architecture at Harvard and a stopover in California on his way to Hawaii to construct underwater hotels. Jeremiah never made it to Hawaii, but in San Francisco he found his calling as a chef, overhauling the industry's obsession with French cuisine in favor of locally-sourced ingredients and a style that came to be known as "California cuisine." In many ways the progenitor of the farm-to-table movement and New American cuisine, he is the subject of a new documentary called "Jeremiah Tower: The Last Magnificent," which traces his gastronomic journey and solidifies what Harry and Tim found out firsthand: it doesn't get much cooler than Jeremiah Tower.

Today's guest is Chef Rick Moonen, the "Godfather of Sustainability." Growing up in a large family in Queens, Rick soon became fascinated by the kitchen. He began cooking, and after a few false starts in other fields, graduated from the top of his class at the Culinary Institute of America. But for Rick, food is much deeper than what's on the plate. He wants it to conjure a memory for the eater, and to create a new. He brings this to his restaurant "RM Seafood" at Mandalay Bay Las Vegas, where he incorporates the principles of sustainability into every plate he serves. Harry and Tim sat down with Chef Moonen in the Boiler Room at RM as his staff set up for the evening, which set the scene nicely for the interview. A special thank you to Michael Rudzinsky who helped produce this episode.

On today's episode, Harry and Tim sit down with Dan Duquette, Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations for the Baltimore Orioles. The interview takes place in a radio booth at JetBlue Park in Fort Myers, FL during a Spring Training game between Duquette's Orioles and the Boston Red Sox. Growing up an athlete in a large family, Dan always dreamed of a life in sports. After playing baseball at Amherst, he joined the Brewers as a scout, which led him to his first General Manager job with the Montreal Expos, and eventually to his dream job with his hometown Boston Red Sox. After 10 years out of Major League Baseball, Dan joined the Baltimore Orioles, and has led them to the most wins in the sport over the past five years.

Steve Lassiter is a Partner and Senior Vice President at APA, the Agency for the Performing Arts. A Nashville native, Steve soon realized he wanted to enter the rich world of music in his hometown. After working odd jobs growing up, he found himself at 19 working the spotlight up on the rafters of a Charlie Daniels show. Within ten years, he'd be Charlie Daniels' agent. In between, Steve broke through as a talent agent, having to sell himself time and time again to artists and venues, and never looked back.

Today's guest is Jon Meacham, Pulitzer Prize-winning author and former editor of Newsweek Magazine. Born and raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Jon Meacham grew up thinking he might be a lawyer or a politician. As a teenager, he was a voracious reader of any and every kind of book; a harbinger for what was to come. Soon after college he entered the world of newspapers and print journalism, as both a writer and editor. His talents were obvious and he soon began to climb the ranks of the editing world after joining Newsweek in 1995. He wrote his first book "Franklin and Winston" in 2003 and won the Pulitzer Prize in 2009 for "American Lion," his biography of President Andrew Jackson.

Today's guest is Prentice Penny, showrunner for HBO's hit show "Insecure," and host of "Upscale," a new show on TruTV. At just six years old, Prentice's world changed in a single day: he saw "Star Wars" and his parents told him they were getting a divorce. Not only was he inspired by what he saw on screen, but he now needed an outlet to express himself, and turned to creating stories and writing. And really, he has not stopped since. An LA native, Prentice went to the University of Southern California to study film and TV and directed his first film right out of school. After the whirlwind of producing a film at 23, though, Prentice wasn't sure where to turn next, and struggled with trepidation and insecurity. What scared and inspired him the most was the writers' room for a television show, a space he could not gain entry to for nearly a decade. After directing music videos and other smaller projects, Prentice finally became a writer on shows such as "Girlfriends," "Scrubs," "Happy Endings," and "Brooklyn 99" before becoming the showrunner of "Insecure." He now hosts his own show on TruTv, "Upscale with Prentice Penny."

On today's episode, our guest is Mark Schlereth. Mark is a three-time Super Bowl winner (Redskins and Broncos) and is now a regular on ESPN's NFL Live and on his own ESPN radio show in Denver. Growing up in Anchorage, Alaska, Mark knew early on that athletics would be his outlet. Struggling with dyslexia, he found it hard to fit comfortably within the school structure. After receiving walk-on offers from football programs all over the country, Mark chose instead a D1AA program at the University of Idaho because he "didn't know if [he] was good enough." After discovering he was in fact good enough, Mark was forced to retire from football, before his junior year, due to injuries. But after reassessing his desire and ability to handle pain, he made it back, and was drafted by the Redskins in the 10th round. He proved everyone wrong and made the Redskins against the odds as a late round pick, starting halfway through his rookie campaign. From there, Mark went on to win three Super Bowls and become one of the best linemen of his generation.
