Episode 79 | The Art of Life with Bob LaPorta

Bob LaPorta is an 81 yr old retired entertainment executive, grandfather, an aspiring architect, mathematician, and lifelong chart, list, and infographic artist. When he was a boy he invented a baseball dice game. Recently, he decided to recreate and improve that baseball dice game to share the joy of tabletop gameplay with his grandchildren.

He also happens to be Alexa's father-in-law! Together, along with Alexa's husband Robert, they turned his ingenious game concept into a cool, carry-along game called 3/9 Baseball. It's inspiring to hear his story of creative evolution–from a love of theater, to producing, to entertaining the masses at one of America's biggest theme parks. His life is a testament to the art of life through courage and creativity.
