Sam was a guest with Scott Swan on the WTHR Thursday Noonday Show. He described the experience of being on Jeopardy as “kind of surreal. I know that’s a little cliché. But I’ve been watching Jeopardy for years and I’ve always thought ‘I should be on the show,’ because I get a lot of the questions at home and then I’m finally there and I meet Alex Trebek and I get to see the making of the shows. It was really cool.”
