What’s on this week’s episode?

This week, Ben and Dave chew the fat with actor, director, producer and author Henry Winkler.  He got his big break as Arthur “The Fonz” Fonzerrelli on Happy Days, but Winkler is much more than a jukebox bumping, motorcycle-riding greaser. He’s an accomplished .  He’s popped up in multiple Adam Sandler movies and has stolen scenes in Arrested Development, Royal Pains, Law & Order and Adult Swim’s Children’s Hospital. His new book, I’ve Never Met an Idiot on the River, is a collection of personal photographs and reflections about his family and his love of fishing.

On Winkler’s gay fans
“I have wonderful gay fans, wonderful straight fans…and some very confused fans!”

 

“I really want her autograph. I respect her. I thought she was incredibly insightful, incredibly supportive, incredibly warm, and had the biggest shoes I’d ever seen in my entire life.”

 

On the Fonz and his career
“A lot of people I meet all over the world talk about the Fonz. He gave me this platform that has then created the rest of my life. So I deeply appreciate him.”
