Cobbler and shoemaker Jason Clapp began to make shoes as an extension of his hobby, working with leather. Then he moved into cobbling, learning about the glues and synthetics that are part of modern, factory-made shoe repair. He spoke with KZYX about his trade, its importance and why he enjoys it.

Former visual effects editor Bill Kimberlin, who worked for 20 years at George Lucas's Industrial Light and Magic, talks with KZYX about how his high school years in Boonville influenced his career, and some of the high points he describes in his memoir, "Inside the Star Wars Empire."
