Iowa is home to a baseball fan who sees ghosts, one spunky librarian who owns all the books in River City's library and a cat with presidential aspirations.  It is also the future birthplace of legendary starship commander Capt. James T. Kirk and claims M*A*S*H's Radar O'Reillyas a native son.  Host Charity Nebbe chats with writers, actors and historians about beloved fictional Iowans from stage, print, television and cinema.
