Todd Leopold — not seen here — is an award-winning writer and producer, most recently at CNN. He has interviewed Barack Obama and Kermit the Frog, questioned American Exceptionalism and visited Disaster City, bantered with the Usual Gang of Idiots and been accused of being one (an idiot, that is).  On Sunday nights you can find him hosting Team Trivia at an Atlanta bar, indulging in his fantasy of being a game-show emcee. (His own experiences as a contestant resulted in some nice parting gifts.)

He is married to Sarah, a history professor, and is owned by three cats, Gillespie, Oscar and Mulligan.
