    Dan Gediman tells the story of how he was cast, at age 10, in the public TV show Zoom, which aired from 1972 to 1979. He was cut from the cast before the show ever went on the air, so for years, he lied about it. He let friends believe he was on Zoom. In this special half-hour story, Gediman tracks down the original Zoom cast members to find out what his life would've been like if he had achieved his childhood dream of being on Zoom.
