A funny thing happened on the way to this podcast. I had recorded the first interview, with podcaster and LA comedy gadfly Mike Carano. I then recorded interview #2, with comedian Valerie Tosi. Valerie and I both grew up in Massachusetts and we started talking about, among other things the Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon, which always signaled to end of summer vacation. After we recorded the interview, I thought, you know, I should write the middle piece about Jerry Lewis. He's a pretty...

Hot town, summer in the city. The Lovin’ Spoonful sang it. But we’re gonna keep you cool with a bunch of interesting junk. How’s that? Four amazing guests on this episode. April Richardson is here with her pal and mine Karen Kilgariff. You can find April online at @apey, and Karen is one half of the podcast My Favorite Murder, and if you don’t know about that by now, I can’t help you. Bobcat Goldthwait is here, with his pal comedian Caitlyn Gill. Bob has a new show coming out on Tru...

Welcome to another episode of the Dana Gould Hour, recorded partially in Los Angeles at Falcon's Lair Studios and partially in beautiful Atlanta, Georgia, where I am for the summer filming season two of Stan Against Evil.

Brandt Tobler, a comedian and author whose new book, Free Roll, is available now. He has a story that, dare I say...

Spring has sprung here at the Dana Gould hour podcast, with a brimming bushel of bright and bouncy banter. Ken Reid is here today, of the superlative podcast TV Guidance Counselor. And our old buddy, the Bitter Buddha himself, Eddie Pepitone is here. As for me, things are heating up far beyond their normal frenzied pace. On May 2nd I’ll be at the Lyric Hyperion Theater in Silverlake, CA. This is different from most LA shows as I’m doing a full hour, which clocks in at about an...

This is a very special episode of the Dana Gould hour podcast, not the least of which because it came out on schedule. I'm happy to welcome back to the show actor and author Stephen Tobolowsky. Stephen is a man after my own heart. He's an actor, an author, a musician. He is the epitome of those people who's name rings a bell and then you see them and say, "Oh THAT guy!" He played Ned Ryerson in Groundhog Day, he was the other amnesiac in Memento, he was Commissioner Jarry on Deadwood,...

Greg has gone from being one of the leading special effects make-up wizards in in Hollywood to one of the hottest directors in television. Also joining...

It's the most wonderful time of the year of course, by wonderful, I mean living in the state of total, unending, frantic chaos and constantly forgetting that you have to buy stamps and your out of Scotch tape. BUT we have an amazing show providing two very interesting looks inside the beautiful business that we call show to wrap up the 2016 year. Pete Aronson is here. Pete is the head of programming and development at the Independent Film Channel, not only is the executive who...

Today, I’m going to give you both sides of the political spectrum. Neither side an advocate of Donald Trump (I don’t think I could get through that) but certainly an advocate for the right and an advocate for the left. There are too many people in this country talking past each other. The internet, which was supposed to unite us, has divided us further, and I am of the belief that the election of a election of someone like Donald trump is in part a direct result of an electorate too far...

Aaaaaaaaand we're back. As I said, filming the show would not interrupt the podcast schedule in any way shape or form, except for that one massive interruption. But we ARE back. I don't know how you spent your summer vacation,. but I spent mine working nights in a Georgia swamp and it was pretty much the most fun I've ever had. The show - Stan Against Evil - is in the can, we are editing it now, and it will premiere on IFC Halloween night and will be re-run on November second in its...

We're going to solve all the world's problems by conversing with my two most politically opposed friends. Raving, bomb-throwing Bolshevic Eddie Pepitone - you can follow Eddie on The Twitter at @EddiePepitone, and from Meet The Press, self-described right wing nut Mike Murphy, you can follow him at @murphymike. Now, you might ask, how can I be friends with people who have different political views than I do? Simple. I'm a grown up. Wand what's great about this episode is that we disagree...

Well, I promised you we'd premiere a new episode on the first of every month and clearly I was lying. Oh, people. I am in pre-production of the upcoming IFC series Stan Against Evil and the schedule is getting tight, but we are plunging away. Here we are better late than never, and by the time you hear this we're already elbow deep in May's episode. So there. Today, our overall topic is murders committed by crazy people, but we dip in and out of it a fair amount. The People vs. O.J....

It’s a brand new edition of The Dana Gould Hour Podcast. I like to think of the show as an audio Pop Tart, you NEVER quite now when it’s going to pop up, but in the interest of some sort of regularity, and with my awareness that nature abhors a vacuum and that I, like many others, NEED a deadline now and again, we are trying, trying, trying to get the shows out on the first or second of every month. Is the world throwing up roadblocks to make that difficult? YES. The good news is, these...

We did it. It’s the first episode of The Dana Gould Hour podcast for 2016 and we juuuust missed January but when I tell you I had homework this month, I had homework. But everything’s getting turned in on time and hopefully, we’ll have some cool stuff to announce in the not too distant future. Lots of stuff coming up this year including my new special and album, tentatively entitled Mighty Mouth. More about that in the not-too-distant future, where, as Elvis Costello sang, everything will...

It's the most wonderful time, of the year. My favorite time of year, my favorite month, my favorite holiday and my favorite episode of the podcast. This year is no exception. I can't summon the Great Pumpkin but I can squash any fears that this episode is anything less than awesome. Get it? Pumpkin and squash, because they're vaguely similar. Okay.Big Guns! Patton Oswalt is my guest. We're gonna talk the horror movies that made us who we are. Showing them to your kids. Make them one of us....

Ahhhh September. Apple blossom time. The temperatures dip down under the hundreds and I start the long process and dragging my Halloween decorations out of the garage. I'm also travelling!
