Ramblings of a Suburban Mom



HuffPostLive synopsis: Your family includes 7 billion people, and author and Esquire editor-at-large A.J. Jacobs will explain how. We discuss his plans for the world's largest family reunion and the importance of our genealogy.

HuffPost Live features Snoop Dog, David Lee Roth, The Roots, Wayne Brady and several other musical guests to great this fun freestyle rap mash! I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did!



Michael Rapaport, actor-director, shared his views on celebrities using Kickstarter. "Me, personally, I wouldn't use it." "Kickstarter is for undiscovered talent, first-time people".
