Votes: 1Seanan McGuire

It's interesting, because I named my first album after my dad because I wanted to find him.

I've never really broken this down before, but, in movies, you almost have no connection to fans. And if you do TV, you're kind of connected, but they know you as the TV name not your real name. If you do radio, there's more of a bond there. And then if you do a podcast it's like you're literally inside of your fans. Votes: 1Adam Carolla
