Dan Brisse is a widely regarded "urban snowboarder," meaning he leaps between buildings on his board! Crazy! He has said, " "Snowboarding satisfies something in my life that nothing else really can. Maybe people see me flying over some feature or other and think I'm crazy, but I hope they know that I put a lot of thought and effort into making sure everything I do is as safe as it can be - even if I'm trying to push myself to a new level that day." Can't wait to talk to him!

We'll also talk about Banned Books Week as well as what's happening in sports, from the NCAA to Jeter's last game as a New York Yankee.
