Wayne Johnson, producer/host
Okay, first you've gotta realize Wayne is into conspiracies. The "Illuminati" actually run the world. We're all being mind-controlled. But the guy's as confident on his show as Johnny Carson was on his. And he has interesting stuff. From basic meditation moments to standing in a field reading quotations that he likes, to "you are there" footage he shot in Belfast's trouble spots with his Sony Digicam. This is warts-and-all TV. Yeah, he has an ax to grind, but it's not concealed like the big boys'. If you switch on your TV 30 minutes early, you can learn about Kurdish dancing and culture.
