It's been a couple weeks since I announced I'd be jumping into this podcast thing, and I've been trying desperately to figure out an angle that hasn't been done yet, I don't want to do the same thing everyone else is doing! So I had the audio from a conversation I had in 2010 with George Hamilton. He’s not just a Hollywood icon, author and famed ladies man, George Hamilton loves cigars. Not only does he love them, but his knowledge of the growing and manufacture go well beyond that of even the most hardcore enthusiast. From landing in Havana in January of 1959 and being detained by the revolution (read his book “Don’t Mind if I Do”!), to having brands of cigars and cigar bars bearing his name, Mr. Hamilton knows cigars and took some time out of his busy day to speak with me about them. I transcribed the recording, which, by the way, was made using very old technology involving cassette tape, and posted it in text form (here). I have another iconic interview recorded that might make it into a future episode! I'n the mean time I'm still trying to come up with a solid concept, so send in your ideas!
Thanks for taking the time to listen! Until the next time,
