This time around, we talk to the man behind the site Jim's Pancakes-a blog that chronicles one man's quest to make cool and unusual pancakes for his daughter. We find out about the upcoming annual Superman Celebration in Metropolis, Illinois. And we hear from comedy duo Rhett and Link, who make a living making on-line commercials and songs. We'll have those stories and more, this time on Sidetrack!
