Alex Roy sits down with George on The Hour tonight to talk cars, rallies and breaking world records. In 2006, he did what few thought was possible, he drove across the United States in 31 hours and 4 minutes. He's also well known for his crazy stunts at the Gumball 3000 rallies and he just released a new book last fall, The Driver: My Dangerous Pursuit of Speed and Truth in the Outlaw Racing World.
Tools in hand, he's the home owner's super hero. His show Holmes on Homes has exposed one bad renovation job after another since going on the air in 2003. Frustrated with the state of the industry after one of his rescues meant tearing down the whole house, he started The Holmes Foundation to encourage more young people to take up the building trades and to help home owners struggling to fix their homes. Fixing the world, one home at a time, Mike Holmes drops in to The Hour.
Taking the statement "You are what you eat" to the next level, author Michael Pollan is scheduled to tape in The Hour studios on Wednesday. His recent book, "In Defence of Food: The Eater's Manifesto", casts a spotlight on the plight of food. Real food, like what our grandparents ate. Pollan claims that most of what we eat these days is Frakenfood... the result of food scientists playing in the laboratory, and that this crafted food is hurting us more than helping us. George's been talking about this book over the past few weeks, and how it just might change the way he looks at food.
