This feature—a question-and-answer session with a person from sports/entertainment/politics/whatever—will appear every week on jeffpearlman.com. If you have any suggestions/ideas for people to speak with, hit me up at anngold22@gmail.com. I’m listening. Oh, and for the full categorization of every Quaz, click here.

#374 THE QUAZ

Jeff Bradley

He was one of America’s terrific baseball writers—until ESPN kicked him to the curb. After hitting a career nadir, this member of a sports royal family found himself as the head of media for Toronto FC, as well as the leader of a glove revolution.

#373 THE QUAZ

Lara Fowler

Why would a film researcher and historian write a book on a largely forgotten actress who last walked the earth more than five decades ago? Answer: Passion and love.

#372 THE QUAZ

Jon Springer

The author of a new book about the worst team in baseball history (Go, Wilmington Quicksteps!) is a long-suffering Mets fan with a not-so-secret passion for all things Jeff McKnight.

#371 THE QUAZ

Furillo

We spotted him working the stage at an Asian festival inside the Orange County Fairgrounds. The music was loud, the beat infectious. Five people were paying attention—and yet, this performer brought his A game. How? And … why?

#370 THE QUAZ

Giana Nguyen

Sometimes your kid’s piano teacher is actually a pop standout in disguise. And sometimes that piano teacher’s voice reminds you of Mariah Carey. And sometimes her life story personifies the American dream.

#369 THE QUAZ

Kyle Aletter Oldham

Her mom is Catwoman. Her dad starred in “Bringing Up Buddy.” She was a “Love Boat” guest star who worked as a model on “The Price is Right.” In other words: The perfectly quirky Quaz.
