1133 Anat Baron, documentary filmmaker, "Beer Wars" 2009

8/8/2019
More
2009: This should be an interesting show. We have a guest who is allergic to beer and a host who never touches the stuff. Naturally, the subject is… beer! Anat Baron is the director of a new documentary called Beer Wars. Now available for sale on DVD, it’s not a movie about rival frat houses—on second thought, maybe it is. Baron presents a sometimes tongue-in-cheek study have how the big three brewing companies—Anheuser-Busch, Coors and Miller—will stop at nothing to gobble up shelf space...

2010: I start each show talking about “So much media, so little time…” But David Mathison sees the media differently. Instead of observing it from afar, he wants you to be the media—you, yourself. Mathison, a former executive with the Reuters news agency, takes the whole notion of 21st century media very seriously. In his new, self-published handbook, Be The Media: How to Create and Accelerate Your Message… Your Way, Mathison lays out how anyone can have a message and spread it using...

While still serving his country, he won a modeling contest over 3,500 other contestants and—after completing his military tenure—began a career as an international print model.

2009: The really funny thing about Judy Tenuta? Pretty much everything. And she’s actually quite a lovely woman, as you can see from the photos on her website—JudyTenuta.com. I wanted to get that out of the way now, before she reminds me of what a pig I and all the rest of you men are. JUDY TENUTA podcast excerpt: "Here's a letter: 'Dear Goddess, I have a super-cute boyfriend who only likes to decorate and lip sync to Yentl. Could he be gay? Love, Oprah.' What is going on with her?" Now...

2009: The screaming goes on a little long because Dominique’s character, kindly coffee shop waitress Christie, was just attack twice, first by a homeless man, then by a man she believes—correctly—to be the Picasso Killer. She’s trying to get into a locked but lighted building. Unfortunately, the security guard on duty is played by the late David Carradine and he does everything slowly. And the agonized woman outside his door doesn’t impress him at all. podcast excerpt: "When David...

2010: As a middle school girls soccer coach, I enjoy working with kids and their parents, But not, I suspect, enough to want to be Jo Frost, the star of the ABC TV series “Supernanny.” And while it would be tempting to be called “Super-Manny,” the title that falls to her associate Mike Ruggles, I don’t think I’d want to be him, either. MIKE RUGGLES podcast excerpt: "When they brought me in, they thought it might be good angle to work with Dad. They were centered on Dad, but it turned out...

This was so cool, I had to share it again! in 2011, I took a flyer on a paid commercial for the Mr. Media podcast on Kevin Smith's new Smodcast daily, online radio show, Plus One Per Diem. The show features Smith, the director of Clerks, Chasing Amy and Red State, and his wife, actress Jen Schwalbach, discussing life, culture and family. I wrote some suggested points for the live read of the commercial, but Smith improvised the best and rest of it. Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did!

From the time I started reading John Barbour’s career-spanning memoir, Your Mother’s Not A Virgin: The Bumpy Life and Times of the Canadian Dropout Who Changed the Face of American TV! I kept searching for the right word to describe my over-arching impression of the man. It wasn’t easy because in the course of 700 pages, Barbour is a comedian, a talk show host, a culture critic, a writer for Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley and singer Frank Sinatra, a husband and father, and perhaps...

2010: I always dreamed there would come a day when I would meet the lovely actress Ming-Na. But I thought it would be in a smoky, out of the way bar, we’d both be single… I’m sorry—where was I? MING-NA podcast excerpt: "As much as I'm proud to be part of the Disney legacy as 'Mulan,' I'm also proud to be one of the Charlie Harper women--that legacy. We're acting, we're working.

2010: When the producers of the CBS reality TV hit “Undercover Boss” brag that their show is about corporate presidents getting their hands dirty, they couldn’t be more accurate than this week’s episode. Because on Sunday, April 4, 2010, the boss going undercover is Rick Arquilla, president of Cincinnati, Ohio-based Roto-Rooter Services Company.

2019: Exploitation Nation, Mike Watt’s bi-annual journal in which he gives lowbrow entertainment a highbrow survey, is all about underground comix in its sixth issue. I’m always looking for an excuse to feature comics-related subjects on Mr. Media, so seeing previous Mr. Media guests Howard Cruse and Trina Robbins on the cover, plus art by Will Eisner – whose authorized biography I wrote 15 years ago – it was a pretty easy reach for me. In fact there is a story inside about Eisner that I...

2010: Business leaders today are looking for every possible advantage to grow their business. Of course, that’s not a whole lot different from years past, except that instead of wanting to enhance their operations, many need this knowledge just to stay in business. For that reason, a solid book of business lessons, taught by someone who has been in the trenches and led—and studied, himself—is always a hotly sought-after commodity.
