375. A Creative Dream 10 Years in the Making! – An interview with Executive Producer Scott Siepker

Scott Siepker is back!  That’s right. We’re talking with the Actor, Writer and Executive Producer!

Scott’s well-known for his great creative work as well as his viral “Iowa Nice” videos!

 Plus, this might be episode 375… but Scott joined us way back for episode 82 of DTD!

He’s been working on some exciting projects since our last conversation! One of the biggest updates is that Scott and his team have put together an INCREDIBLE documentary called “KINNICK.”

It’s the story of Nile Kinnick – who was a child of the depression who went on to win the Heisman Trophy and became a pilot in World War 2.  Not only that… he became one of the best known people in the country. In fact, Ronald Regan once reflected that if Nile Kinnick hadn’t died in WWII… “he could have gone on to become the President of the United States.”

 Plus, if you’ve ever walked through the main gate of the University of Iowa’s fabled football stadium… you’ve passed by a beautiful bronze statue of young Nile.  But hey… whether you’re a sports fan or not… I can tell you… THIS is a powerful story! 

We’re going to talk with Scott about Nile’s journey… as well as Scott’s own journey as he worked on the dream of creating this documentary for 10 years!  And… as you’ll hear… he’s just getting started!
