Deborah Wolff barely survived working on reality shows and she wrote a book about it.

This is an old episode of Daytime Justice, the old pod, that is more relevant now with this new format. Also, reality is on a downswing. The only reality show that's water-cooler talk worthy is 90 Day Fiancee. Personally, I am in love with Magic for Humans. Anything Tim and Eric does is brilliant. But I digress! This is a really great conversation with Deborah about the demands made of producers of reality TV shows. So You Think You Wanna Work In TV? is an independently produced podcast....

On the road in Washington D.C. anything can happen! And it does!

One of the fun things about TV Production is you get to go on the road. Sometimes it's torture, sometimes it's great. In this case, it's pretty great. Since I couldn't get anyone on the show to do the podcast (and I explain why in the episode) I went to Lafayette Park and experienced the shit show that is there. I interviewed people and caught a fight between a DTJ impersonator and a Jesus freak. Enjoy! So You Think You Wanna Work In TV? is an independently produced podcast. You can...

Alex Hooper was on Season 13 (the one airing right now) of AGT. He chose to do a character and roast the judges and it was very Kaufmanesque. I thought it was genius.

We're all in shock. Anthony Bourdain was the guy we all looked up to, admired, and wanted to be like. I chased after people who knew him or met him. Luckily, I was able to do two phoners with two people. Rico Gagliano of Dinner Party Download had him on his podcast. And my friend Bill Dawes worked out with him at an MMA studio in NYC. I love what they both had to say about Mr. Bourdain. You will, too. No music cues, no plugs. Just conversations. www.soyouthinkyouwannaworkintv.com
