He’s awesome, I know. Still not ringing a bell? Well, he is the face of the Geoffrey Baer specials on WTTW/PBS.

In each video he travels through different regions, giving interesting tidbits of historical and current information along the way. If you haven’t seen one of these yet, I would highly suggest checking one out. Although I love the entire series, here are my top 3 (with links to the videos):
