Julian Fleisher's Guilty Pleasures

An instant favorite at the iTunes Music Store, Julian’s podcast asks his guests to reveal the songs they’re most embarrassed to admit they love. Mortification is transformed into pride and guilt becomes greatness as, one by one, special guests (both famous and not-so) unburden themselves of a lifetime of secret shame…

One Tryck Pony

One of the podcast-o-sphere’s leading lights, the mysterious and yet simultaneously highly exposed, One Tryck Pony stops by to talk guilty pleasures. Instead of coughing up titles, however, she ends up in a shamelessly flirting with two of Julian’s neighbors, both recent (and vulnerable) graduates of NYU. This episode-within-an-episode was originally thrown together at the… Continue reading →

Molly Ringwald

Molly Ringwald is many things to many people, to be sure. To us, though, she’ll always be the gal who cooked a 20-pound turkey to bronze perfection in under 2-hours, while graciously losing at Scrabble. As if that weren’t enough, she’s a willing participant in another game that doesn’t always end so well: confessing one’s… Continue reading →

Mo Rocca

Most of you know Mr. Mo Rocca from his many appearances on The Daily Show, VH1, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and even Animal Planet’s “Whoa, Sunday”. Really. What you probably don’t know about Mo, though, is that this charming, brilliant and easy-going “humorista” is also a veteran of New Jersey’s Hunterdon Hills Playhouse’s… Continue reading →

Justin Bond

For more than a decade, Justin Bond has thrilled and terrified audiences around the world as Kiki Durane, the booze-swilling, fire-breathing, mind-blowing T-Rex of the washed-up lounge singer set. With the ingenious Kenny Mellman as Herb at the piano, these two fiercely original, yet strangely recognizable titans of the performance world have left a stunning,… Continue reading →

Kenny Mellman

“A truly inspired pop musicologist” is how the New York Times described Kenny Mellman in its all-out rave of Kiki & Herb’s recent limited run on Broadway. (This interview was conducted just weeks before they opened). “The secret ingredient” is how another observer trenchantly described the deceptively retiring Herb. But anything more than a cursory… Continue reading →

Martha Plimpton

The scion of one of the American Theater’s reigning families, Martha Plimpton has been performing in one way or another for, well, a long time. Countless movies, plays and other gigs later, she is at her fighting best: young, sexy, irrascible and brilliant. In fighting trim and down for almost anything, Marty took time out… Continue reading →

Tom Judson

Composer. Producer. Writer. Porn star? That’s right. Polymorphously perverse Tom Judson wears many hats, most interestingly that of “Gus Maddox”, recent winner of the GAYVN Performer of the Year Award — a feat made more remarkable by the winner’s all-to-brief tour of duty in the adult industry, his relatively advanced age among performers therein and… Continue reading →

David Rakoff

It’s hard to say how David Rakoff is best known: as an author, actor, comic, editorialist. If he weren’t such a luddite, he’d surely have an influential blog. For the moment, then, it’s probably safe to say his most lasting fame will result from his two bestselling comic masterworks, Fraud and Don’t Get Too Comfortable,… Continue reading →

Leon Fleisher

Ravel, The Green Hornet and masturbation: just a few of the head-spinning juxtapositions you’ll enjoy when JF interlocutes his own elusive sire in this, the long-overdue latest edition of the podcast. On the eve of his coronation at the 2007 Kennedy Center Honors, piano papa Leon Fleisher hauls his cookies up to Kitchen Studios for… Continue reading →

Cintra Wilson

Someone somewhere once called Cintra Wilson “The Dorothy Parker of the Cyber Age”. But as Dorothy Parker herself once said “I don’t care what is written about me as long as it isn’t true.” Indeed! For if Parker’s keen eye had had half the fire that this dame’s has, why the Algonquin would long ago… Continue reading →

Sandra Tsing Loh

Sandra Tsing Loh is an icon in the cultural sphere of LA, and practically the patron saint of Van Nuys, where she lives — and that’s not some backhanded compliment. An award-winning writer/performer/composer/gadfly and, yes, also a beloved NPR personality, she’s a wife, a mom and yet still somehow a really good time. And that’s… Continue reading →

Joshua “Josh” Malina

You may know Joshua “Josh” Malina from such television warhorses as Sports Night, The West Wing and Big Shots — well, maybe not Big Shots. But did you know that he is also the co-creator of Bravo’s network-making series Celebrity Poker Showdown? He’s also sire to a frisky brood of precocious insult comics who don’t… Continue reading →
