FROM THIS EPISODE

An 18-year-old in foster care, Anthony Pico gives speeches to the big and powerful all over California. Public speaking changed his life. But being a spokeskid, he's found, is complicated. And when David Iserson was a teenager, he starred in a commercial, which basically ruined his life. Plus, other stories of what happens when you go from private person to public face.
