  1. Excellent Podcast! Reminded me of the St. Jack podcast, where the guest told a story of his fascination with a particular film, and his search for the story behind the making of St. Jack. This time around, it was a head-spinning film starring a 2'9" tall leading man as a secret agent/martial artist/ladies man - Weng Weng! As with Saint Jack, the guest then went on a personal journey of discovery trying to get to the 'real story' behind the diminutive Weng Weng.
    Mr. Leavold's interview really drew me into the podcast - I was anticipating a big reveal as to what happened to the late Weng Weng, why his film career fizzled, but the podcast ended without it. I realized that Mr. Leavold was saving that for the planned documentary, so I logged in and made a $20.00 donation - to get the whole story! Thanks for linking to "The Impossible Kid" on Youtube. I downloaded it to my PC using Realplayer, burned it to a DVD-R, will watch it 2nite.
