Plots/ Story Lines - General Topics
Stories He Told and Topics He Discussed

General Topics
Over the years, Shep spoke of many different subjects on the radio. Many times it was a story which ultimately ended up in writing or in one of his movies or television productions. But he also touched upon many other subjects such as current events, life in general, or some far out observations.

Plots / Story Lines
Shep used all the mediums available to him to test and develop a story. He would tell it on his weekday show, and perhaps a limelight show in front of an audience. Then he would put it into a written form as a short story in magazines such as Playboy and Car & Driver or into book form such as "In God We Trust - All Others Pay Cash." Ultimately many would end up in some polished form as part of one of his movies. Below is a compilation of many of those plots / story lines and where they were used.
