1K with Larry Toppman: 30 minutes in a hotel room with Jack Black

9/21/2018
More
Great writers have a knack for storytelling. Larry Toppman is one of them. Over the years I have enjoyed reading his film reviews AND hearing his stories, the latter shared over coffee, lunch or at screenings. Some of my favorite Larry stories have included a Bermuda cruise that almost sank, a high school reunion run amok, and some crazy happenings in Las Vegas. This 1K podcast allows Larry to tell stories related to his interactions with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Over four decades...

1K with Lisa Davis: Clothing Shaquille O'Neal

9/14/2018
More
There are a lot of jobs in TV and film production that, if done right, are often underappreciated. For example, you don’t hear many people raving about the art of costume designing and making unless it’s a period piece with flowy ballgowns. But behind every item of clothing on any film or TV show, is a choice. Whether you actively think about it or not, everything a character wears tells you something about who they are, where they are, and when they are. Our guest this week is Hollywood...

1K with Rob Treveiler: Making out with Teri Hatcher

8/31/2018
More
Rob Treveiler has a name my dyslexic brain wants to misspell and/or mispronounce. It’s a shame because I really like the guy. He has always been kind, accessible and very talented. I remember watching him a few years ago on set. He introduced himself to the extras, his fellow actors and talked to the crew. Then, right before filming began, he fell into his character. It was special. Over the last couple of years Rob’s talents have been justifiably recognized. He has landed roles in big...

1K with Quinn Shephard: College funds for an indie film

8/24/2018
More
Last year a 22-year-old named Quinn Shephard took the Tribeca Film Festival by storm. She wrote, directed and starred in the award-winning film Blame. Inspired by Arthur Miller’s Crucible, Quinn started writing the screenplay about coming of age in high school, while she was doing just that…in high school. Write what you know. But, also what you loathe? Quinn shares how hard high school was for her. She was a loner who struggled to make friends and was often bullied. Fast forward a few...

8/17/2018
More
Ken Ludwig is a Tony Award-winning playwright whose 25 plays and musicals have spawned six Broadway productions and seven in London’s West End. His first trip to Broadway materialized when an English director friend passed along the play that would become Lend Me a Tenor to a “producer friend" you might have heard of: Andrew Lloyd Webber. He loved the play, and six months later, it opened in the West End. Not long after that, Tenor hopped across the pond to Broadway. Referred to as...

In this podcast, Charna shares that story and how it led her from one classroom into a completely different one: teaching improv and shaping comedy history. Her students have included Chris Farley, Steve...

1K with Brian Lafontaine: Killing the star of Nashville

8/3/2018
More
Brian Lafontaine is a talented actor of film, television, stage and voice-over. This makes him a rarity in our modern world in that his vocation and passion align. It’s important that they do because it is the joy of acting that helps Brian get through the hard parts: the incredible amount of time it takes to memorize scripts…the fruitless auditions. Muhammad Ali’s quote rings true, There’s nothing wrong with getting knocked down, as long as you get right back up. Brian’s advice for...

1K Marketing with Scott Galloway

In a delightfully confusing move, our guest this week is none other than Scott Galloway. No, not the host of this podcast. The other Scott Galloway. Or is our Scott Galloway the other Scott Galloway? Anyway, this episode features two Scott Galloways for the price of one. You might recognize our guest as the NYU professor who replied to a rude student's complaint email with a legendary virtual tongue-lashing. Or maybe you've seen his videos for L2 Inc on YouTube analyzing brand strategy...

Drilling for Texas Tea turned out to be a bust for Tito Beveridge, but he struck the mother lode with a different type of liquid altogether, one more commonly associated with Russia than the American southwest: vodka. It's a story of perseverance, and today, twenty years later, Tito's Handmade Vodka is flying off the shelves.
