The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Billy Van Zandt! (Season 5 Finale)

1/22/2021
It's so cool when I get to interview such creative and multi-talented people for my season finales, don't you think? Billy Van Zandt certainly fits the bill. His publicist Jian, who was also a HUGE help in setting up the interview, sent me a copy of his book, Jane, Get In The Car, which I read off my computer, so I can't call it a page-turner, legally...maybe a slow-computer screen scroll down, so you can enjoy all of the chapters? It's a fun read, regardless. The writing style of the book...

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Shannan Wilson! (featuring a bonus music track)

1/20/2021
It was a real treat meeting Shannan. As I noted in the episode, I was sort of expecting someone who can play dramatic, intense roles to be super- serious. Wrong!! She was the type of fun guest I love interviewing in The Screening Room. Somebody needs to cast this lady in a comedy, and stat! (She's already got a background in improvisation, anyway.) And when she becomes mega-famous, she'll already have known the ropes of QVC, so she can sell the Shannan Wilson line of clothing, guitars, or...

Cody Langley of "POPular Opinion" POPS in!

1/15/2021
"I'm pretty Southern. You might need subtitles for me." So said today's guest. Hey, if Cody was able to understand me, I wouldn't need subtitles. I was surprised that I'd learn even more about Funko Pops, when I never even knew about them a few months earlier. Cody's YouTube channel is very unique. He's a guy who certainly likes to have fun on camera, and with his guests. If I were playing "Wheel of Misfortune", I'd have to be very careful. Truth be told, I had a vowel-buying problem a...

We're "Goin' Hollywood" with JD and The Ghost! (and I forgot to pack my bronzer!)

1/13/2021
So, who do you usually discuss movies with? Your friends,right? Whether it's a debate or a dialogue reference, those are best saved for your buddies. Which leads to a natural creation of 'Goin ' Hollywood " by JD and The Ghost. It's two guys with a strong love of the cinema and all the joys it brings (or doesn't bring) us. They were 2 guys that were definitely interesting to speak with. Plus, how often do I get to break out my bad Joe Pesci impression? Or will the Rebels say, "Look what you...

1/3 of the "Three Geeks Podcast" + 1/2 of "Mat Talk"=Jason Taylor!

1/8/2021
Okay, so I'm not really good at math! And considering my mic went kerflooey right before the interview, not good at technology either (Update: Thanks to the folks at Samson for helping me out after the episode was recorded. Awesome people!) But we got through the interview unscathed, so that's a plus! Jason certainly keeps himself busy with several podcasts. He's a guy who loves to share his passion with his listeners and his (varying amount of) co-hosts. Thanks for coming on the show,...

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Steven Jay Rubin!

1/6/2021
So, what could I, a sherpa who hasn't seen a single Bond movie, learn from the author of the encyclopedia of James Bond movies? A lot, apparently! Steve is a guy who has clearly done his homework, and knows how to share his passion(s) with an audience, whether in writing, or on film. Plus, he was so much fun to talk to, and we both broke out impressions from our respective toolkits. We recorded the episode before the unfortunate passing of Sean Connery (spoiler alert: Steve's favorite...

Magician Anthony Presciutti Makes the Sherpa Disappear! (Wait, you were WISHING for That??!)

1/1/2021
I grew up being really into magic for some time. I love close-up and a good card trick. There used to be "Magic" magazine, where you'd actually get blueprints to build stage illusions Unfortunately, my parents' homeowners' insurance went up when I tried to recreate that "making the Hoover Dam disappear" trick. But Anthony was a fun reminder of why I enjoy it so much. Hopefully, one day he'll et on "America's Got Talent" or another showcase, to give the world a taste of his talent. And...

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Liz Priestley!

12/30/2020
True story: Within 5 minutes of meeting on Zoom, Liz and I were already giggly. She liked my Paul McCartney impression, too. Or, maybe someone spiked my yak milk, I'm not sure. Liz is the type of person that you can't help but root for. She brought such a down-to-earth quality to the Screening Room, and she definitely likes to laugh. Nothing wrong with that, Rebels! I just have this sense that you'll be seeing her in even bigger projects further along in her career. Call it a hunch. Or a...

Pigeon Hunting (No, not really!) with the Multi-Talented Katherine Brodsky of "Mind The Future"!!

12/25/2020
What a great Christmas present for an interview! Soooo much fun talking with Katherine, who's got too many talents ("Too Many Talents!" Does the Sherpa smell a podcast sequel?) that I can list in this space. I don't think I've had a guest who's discussed blowing things up, Mel Brooks' chair, making the Dalai Lama laugh, Jazz hands, and a podcast discussing the future...until now! I'm happy to report that no pigeons were harmed with Katherine's water gun during the recording of this episode....

Why can Sarah Alcorn of "Ivy League Murders" hunt down clues, while the Sherpa lives life without one?

12/23/2020
I got to speak to two amazing ladies this week, Rebels, and these interviews were so fascinating.! Today, I had the pleasure of speaking with Sarah Alcorn, a PI, who co-hosts this true crime podcast. The lady really knows alot about crime, and about PI work. So be careful out there-she might be working on a case and in disguise! She dishes on the real life of a private investigator, and how it stacks up against what you see on tv and in the movies. It's so cool that she uses her skills to...

John Orlando's podcast is PVD-lightful! (Seriously,...I couldn't come up with a more clever title???!!)

12/18/2020
This was a fun interview, Rebels. I felt John was a really interesting guest, and I'm glad you get to hear this interview. I, too, had aspirations of becoming a pro wrestler, but I kept putting the mask on backwards. Which made walking to the ring quite a challenge. But John, nonetheless, made a career in the wrestling biz, being the voice of various wrestling organizations. Now he's got not only a podcast about stuff he likes, but he and (spoiler alert:future guest) Jason Taylor host the...

Buckle Up! It's time to visit William Walley in the "World of Walley"!

12/16/2020
William Walley strikes me as a guy who could do a podcast solo and fill it with stories about his life. I'm sure he can draw upon his wealth of experiences quite easily. It was lots of fun getting to know him, even if he was a bit reluctant to do a Brooklyn accent. Not even south Brooklyn, William? I appreciate him coming on the show and sharing some of his stories. I liked the one about the guy swimming on the sand! And William, I'd bet Billy Gibbons is listening to your show right now. As...

Tuning In (and Geeking out) to "Earth Station One", with Mike Faber!!

12/11/2020
Not to sound like a broken record (Um, doesn't a broken record make no sound?) but I love episodes where I get to learn stuff. Mike Faber was the perfect guy to introduce me to the "con" (convention) world. Especially for someone who's gone for a long time.And I learned about Dr. Who! Who? Oh, I'm not starting that again...His collection of Pops was unbelievable too. I'd never heard of them until this interview. I better not start collecting anything else, or the Sherpa bride may want to...

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Richard Burgin!

12/9/2020
Richard Burgin was really interesting to talk to. I won't give away too much, but you'll hear the inspiration behind "Fang", and how he used the tools and skills he has to get the project off the ground. I'm sure when his movie hits the big (or slightly smaller) screen, people will be in for a good fright from this psychological thriller. You know I'm wondering...if I got bit by a rat, would I suddenly become more human? I guess the world will have to wait for now. But anyway, many thanks to...

The Election's Over, but Vote for Middagh Goodwin, Anyway!

12/4/2020
Before we started our interview, my first words to Middagh were, "Okay, I'm jealous." To which he responded, "Of what?" Well, I won't name names, but he was in a picture standing next to an 80's rocker I've been trying to get on the show. I keep getting, "Their schedule is full." While he DOES know this rocker, unfortunately, not well enough to call them and say"Contact the Sherpa." So, sorry about that, Rebels. But no complaints otherwise on having a fascinating guest on this episode! If he...

Michael Spedden of "Fowl Players Radio" : from Hair-band god to Operatic Viking getting a structured settlement! (Well, kind of...)

12/2/2020
Seriously, could I keep mispronouncing Mike's name? ( The last name, not the first!) Mike is one of those people that you talk to for a short time, but you feel like you've known him a long time. He's much more than your average everyday Viking in a structured settlement commercial, trust me. There's a lot of talent in that bug guy, whether it be acting, rock, or hosting a murder mystery. ( I still want to know what killed my hopes and dreams...) Plus, I got to learn how to die on tv. (And...

It's the guys from " Canned Air"! (Which is NOTHING like "Podcast In A Mason Jar")

11/27/2020
I can imagine Jack, Jeremy, and Randy running the world's coolest comic book and video store, after this interview. They have a deep passion for comics, movies, video games, etc., and it really shows. They love playing games with their listeners, so check out their show for more details. I'd love to see them doing a live Q&A on their show. I doubt you could stump them, provided you stay away from Spider Man questions. (Sorry again, Randy. No control over my typing fingers.) But it's...

Gators and Ducks and Gizmos, Oh my! It's Andy Imhof of "Pardon My Fork"!!

11/25/2020
So if it's real time, you're hearing this the day before Thanksgiving in the U.S. So, I'm guessing you're hungry already! I really learned alot from Andy and had fun doing so, talking about cooking, foodsport, and how to raise a non-neurotic duck. He's a super nice guy, whose show is well- beloved by many of the local foodies in Oregon, as well as people around the world ,who like to hear what he has to say about food and drink So give "Pardon My Fork" a listen....and bring your appetite!...

Yo, DJ, play that Podcast! Darran Bruce of "The DJ Sessions" is in the Mix!

11/20/2020
Darran Bruce strikes me as a guy who likes to be ahead of the curve. As opposed to me. who tends to trip on it, and get tangled up in it. What he says about playing copyrighted material is very important to podcasters,because so many don't know what the actual rules ae. Any music that I play on here is with consent from the artist. And Major League Baseball. Which I don't really know why, because i don't own a stadium organ. But I do have Mr. Bruce announcing when I'll be singing the...

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Scotty Morris of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy!

11/18/2020
I really enjoyed talking to Scotty as much as I did mixing in the band's music for this episode! You can't just sit still and listen to it, although I must say my jitterbugging skills need serious repair, as do 2 lamps, a toaster oven, a nightstand, and half of my VHS collection of "Small Wonder", after I attempted to do so. We spoke about the band not touring (at that time), and I could tell that he'd be ready to jump on stage at a moment's notice, as the band clearly loves to play, and...
