About This Episode

Television writer, producer and former teen idol Shaun Cassidy talks about telling his story and his My First Crush wines. Cassidy is touring again for the first time in decades, writing and producing NBC’s “New Amsterdam,” and selling wine to support No Kid Hungry. “’Find your story’ is the theme of my show… when we're born, there's often a story that society or family or our own crazy expectations have written for us, but it's not always the story we're meant to experience… we have to find our own story and the satisfaction in doing that is profound,” says Cassidy about his music tour. “The more personal, the more open you are, the more vulnerable you are to the audience, the more relatable you are.” He also continues to be excited about helping to end child hunger through his wine making. “Yes, it's a charitable endeavor, but it's also an extraordinary wine and I'm really proud of that… and the fact that it means kids are going to be less hungry than they were the day before this wine came out is huge to me,” he states.
