The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Edward Dose!

9/21/2022
Personally Rebels, this episode was another treat for me. I love doing episodes about music, and I've wanted to do one about photography. So. BA-BAM! Two worlds get thrown together, courtesy of Mr Edward Dose. He's someone who wasn't planning on becoming a professional photographer who has photographed well over 100 rock stars. Talk about a change in plans! He's not just a "rocktographer" (don't you love that word?), he's someone whose pictures become a work of art, regardless of who or what...

Percy Brown, of "The Prince of Fresh Air" podcast, brings the charisma...AND his hair!

9/14/2022
There's that word that came to mind when I interviewed Percy. Big. A big guy, well over 6 feet tall. Big hair. Big charisma, with a big Cheshire cat grin. Moved from one big city in a big state to another big city in a big state. So was it a shock to hear him say he'd love to play a Marvel villian? Nothing small about that. Here's a young guy who knows what he wants in his career and how to market himself -a big blueprint, if you will. He was also big fun to hang around with. So, have a...

Producer, Director, Actor, Author, Foodie, Podcaster-Put 'Em Together, it's Michael Arbouet of "The Quidditas Factor"!

9/7/2022
Not sure how many times I referenced it during the show,, but check out the "New York Minute" movie on YouTube. It's amazing how Michael can create so much tension for a movie in a short period of time. (I'm not talking the "New York Minute" music video from Don Henley. That's probably an entirely different source of tension.) Michael's definitely a guy who keeps himself busy with a lot of different projects. (AND he taught me the proper pronunciation of "quidditas" . Try using that word in...

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Stanley Livingston (Part 2 of 2)!

9/1/2022
We couldn't leave you hanging , Rebels! Today's the conclusion of this two-parter. Learn what Stan did after 13 seasons of "My Three Sons", and what he's doing today to help aspiring actors, and parents of child actors. He may have had a career of over 50 years, but this guy is STILL keeping busy. And I'm glad that I had the privilege to get to know him. Thanks for coming on the show, Stan! Stan's website: (Which he told me is due for an update, but check it out anyway!)...

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Stanley Livingston! (Part 1 of 2)

8/31/2022
So, how cool was it for me to have a conversation with a guy who grew up on TV while I was growing up, um, off TV? This absolutely had to be a 2-parter, because Stan had so many interesting tales to tell. Today covers his family's move to California and his start in the movies and TV, just from learning to swim. No joke! Just have a listen to what the guy has to say. Just don't say "Cable guy!" when you see him. Or me, either. They're always making me reboot that thing! And don't forget to...

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Stephen Pitalo!

8/24/2022
This one was a treat to do, Rebels. Stephen is not only a music video expert, he's also an author, musician, and too many things that I can think of! His website is a fascinating way to spend some time, especially, if you're checking out the articles in his magazine. While you're on there, there's a link to him making a speech about the history of music video, which is a really fun 15-minute ride. So if you think that MTV was never a place for the hottest music videos, well, you're in for a...

Hooray for Hollywood (Wade)! We're talking about the "Crime & Entertainment" podcast!

8/17/2022
Here's a podcast that takes true crime podcasts to another level, Rebels. Wade gets the straight story from people who were involved in crimes, or the investigation of crimes. That means you won't necessarily hear "the same old story" when it comes to what you might have seen or heard on the news or other podcasts. This interview was really interesting, Rebels (but aren't they all?), and Hollywood is certainly a contender for the "best beard in Podcastia" contest. Too bad I can't do a...

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Dylan Kelley!

8/10/2022
I can certainly say that after well over 200 episodes, I've never heard a life story even similar to that of Dylan's. But I guess he does put that uniqueness into whatever he does, or wants to do. As you'll hear in this interview, he clearly didn't hold back in talking about himself, and the demons he's faced. We all have our demons, and unfortunately, mine all look like HR Pufnstuf. (Just ask your parents. Or grandparents, you in the hat.) But, thanks for coming on the show, Dylan! You can...

Everybody's Got a "Hungry Trilobyte" (Sorry, Mr. Springsteen!)! Let's Chat With Aaron Bossig!

8/3/2022
Some call Aaron Publicist Extraordinaire Steve Joiner's right hand. If I was someone's right hand, I'd probably get punched a lot with it. I enjoyed Aaron's stories of reviewing DVD's. Imagine that being your job! For me, that would be the closest I'd get to "Mystery Science Theatre 3000". And yet, some of the movies Aaron watched could have probably been on that show! But, have a listen to the interview to get to know this super-nice, talented podcaster, and check out his show, too. Thanks...

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Christy Crandall!

7/27/2022
Humble, Rebels. That's the word that comes to mind when I spoke with Christy. Not only did she serve her country for many years, and rise in the ranks while doing so, but she was also able to pursue her love of acting and directing afterward. Clearly, the lady gets the meaning of the word "leadership". She doesn't limit herself to one genre, either, as a peek at her IMDB page https://www.imdb.com/name/nm7663869/ will tell you. And to be able to do that, some would say, is worth a medal in...

Discover "What's Under the Bed?" with Dax (with help from his dad, Kai)! (Season 9 Premiere)

7/20/2022
Ahh, fathers and sons! I find it so cool that Dax and Kai have a strong bond over their love of horror movies, which ultimately led to his podcast. The scariest thing I ever did with my dad was "get the screwdriver". And we all know what mayhem THAT will lead to! But that actually gives me an idea for a horror movie when I get to speak to another movie director. You can just hear the enjoyment in their voices when they talk about their favorites and their love for the genre. Which kind of...

It's the Season 8 Last Flight Out!!

7/13/2022
Yes, Rebels, Season 9 will start next week. But first a look back on the past season. Thanks to all who had a hand in this season, and especially to you, the listener! If you're listening on Spotify, please take a minute to answer some questions. Nothing personal. (At least that's what I was told at gunpoint.) Sherpa Suggestions (Season 8 Podcasts): These are the shows featured on "Sherpa Samples" We'll be kicking off Season 9 with Dax and Kai, of "What's Under The Bed?" You can leave...

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Jennifer Vaughn! (Season 8 Finale)

7/6/2022
Back when I was a wee Sherpa, news anchor Walter Cronkite was considered "the most trusted man in America". Around jellybeans might have been a different story, but I digress. Sometimes, I wonder if ,in this day and age, the evening news could be a source of that trust again. I must say that in speaking to Jennifer, you can most definitely hear the dedication to her profession in her responses to my questions. Maybe those who report the news and are more concerned about their image, rather...

Although "You Hate To See It", you get to hear it , from hosts Nick and Jeff!

6/29/2022
I really should have known better here, Rebels. Interviewing guys on a unique podcast gave me a unique interview. Who knew I'd end up talking about sleep disorders?? But Jeff and Nick had interesting tales to tell about both their friendship and the podcast. Unfortunately, Adam, the third host, was unable to attend , due to a SpaceX launch. ( I don't know, it was written on a cocktail napkin.) But these guys with a Criminal Justice background like to put an interesting spin on the world of...

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Dale Niehaus (Again)!

6/22/2022
So, if you were listening to this show on July 23, 2020 (and why weren't you?), you heard one of my "Faces to Watch" episodes, featuring Dale. And as we noted in this show, what a difference a year makes! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Dale's show, "The Joneses" will be picked up by a streaming network. The guy has certainly kept himself occupied with even bigger projects than a short film a month. On so many episodes , we've heard actors say how patience has got to be a virtue in their...

Eat the Microfilm! It's ex-Army spy Pete Turner, of "The Break It Down Show"!

6/15/2022
Interesting coincidence- Pete has interviewed drummer Stewart Copeland, and a week later, I hear an interview with Tim Ferriss, and who else? Stewart Copeland! What can we conclude from this, Rebels? Stewart Copeland is clearly avoiding me. But that has little bearing on today's episode. Pete has definitely spent time with greats, near-greats, and people who will leave you in wide-eyed wonder. And he gets their stories out with the passion of a former spy. I'm glad he was able to discuss...

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet John Anthony!

6/8/2022
So, exactly how do you go from a middle school coach to an actor , writer, and director? Just listen to John's story and learn one way to do it. He's smart enough to know if there isn't a role out there for him, he can always create one. Kind of how I do my taxes. (Wait, did I just type that)? Jihn falls into that category of people that you want to root for. With all that talent, I'm sure we'll be seeing great things from this guy. Thanks so much for coming on the show John! Now, if you'll...

Will and Karen, of "The Skeptic Metaphysicians"podcast, make an Afterlife House Call!

6/1/2022
Jealous, Rebels! I had to tell Will and Karen before our interview how jealous I am of the audio on their podcast. So, they just laughed at me and phoned one of their previous guests to cast a spell on me.And now, I have a tail. I mean, again, I have another tail. Do you realize how difficult this makes buying shorts? But I digress. Not only were these two smart and fun, they could easily grace the cover of a magazine. (I didn't mention that I was jealous of their good looks, because they...

On a comic couch? "Dannylize This", with Daniel "Papi" Gonzalez!

5/25/2022
(WARNING: A little bit of profanity in this episode...) You know, sometimes it seems like it's open season on comics after "that slapping incident" we've all seen. Which incidentally, will be the LAST time I attempt to help a 95 year-old at Walmart. ( I honestly thought she wanted to test out that skateboard, what can I say?) But Daniel soldiers on, nonetheless, with a catcher's mask if necessary. He shares with us the struggles of being a comic, from his early beginnings, to praise from...

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Travis Dunn!

5/18/2022
Lately, I've been stumbling across guests who found a new course a bit later in life. (Well, I'd be stumbling anyway.) Travis fits that bill, being dared to attend an acting class, and subsequently getting bitten by the acting bug while in his 30s. All while being a race car driver, too! I think it's safe to say not much scares him. Unlike me, with broccoli casserole. I loved the fact that he's worked with previous guests Patrick Lescarbeau and Bill Foster (AKA the coolest man in the...
