About this Episode

The hosts discuss the other half of iconic Desilu Productions enterprise, Desi Arnaz ("She's the Vice President, I am the President!")
From his opulent childhood as the son of the mayor of Santiago De Cuba, to losing it all in the Revolution and ultimately finding his way to Miami and the planets aligning for him to meet Lucille Ball.
They discuss the success of I Love Lucy and how Desi brought the business savvy to brilliantly negotiate the rights of all I Love Lucy productions.
Not to be overlooked, his career post ‘Lucy’, his television accomplishments behind the camera and why their marriage could not last.
