AIR DATE: July 22, 2011

When Rick Harrison was a kid he suffered epileptic seizures so bad he was convinced he wouldn't live to be an adult. After overcoming his ailment he went on to become a successful pawnshop owner with his father and son. In his reality show Pawn Stars on History Channel, Harrison takes people into the wild everyday world of the pawn business. Harrison says it's a world that's a lot of fun but also has a dark side. Rick Harrison has just written an autobiography titled License to Pawn, and he joins us to talk about the pawn industry and working with his family.
