Tom Rhodes Radio Smart Camp


Tom Rhodes Radio Smart Camp is a festival of ideas, knowledge, stories, books & adventures.

I have been a comedian for more than 30 years. I travel the world doing comedy. I almost drowned in Thailand, got maced in Paris and had my own Late Night Talkshow in the Netherlands. Whenever I can I will share my adventures with you on this Tom Rhodes Radio Smart Camp podcast.

In this episode I reflect on my many years coming to Chicago and how much this city has meant to me personally. From my years of partying in late night blues joints to the healthy living of briskly walking along Lake Michigan every morning of today.

I talk about Chicago Fun facts, John Fox, Bernie Mac, Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Howlin' Wolf, Zanies and my magnificent love story with Ashna that began with our first trip together to Chicago. In this episode I talk about why Bill Murray is my Buddha and the most perfect moment I have ever experienced in Chicago.
