This week, we're bringing you our wide-ranging conversation with the one and only LeVar Burton.  He tells us the life lesson he learned from Dr. Maya Angelou while working on Roots, what he wishes he could say to Star Trek writers about his character Geordi La Forge, and how his love of reading led him to Reading Rainbow in the past, and his new podcast Levar Burton Reads in the present.  Be forewarned: he just might scandalize you when he reveals his hidden talent.  And make sure you listen till the end of the episode - you won't regret it!
