The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Allison Church!

May 11, 2022

Allison was lots of fun to spend time with. I think she's the first transgender guest I've had on the show. She was telling me before our interview that electrolysis is NOT fun. If I needed to do that, they'd have to break o…

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Christen Stovall!

Feb. 23, 2022

I've heard it said that everyone has a book in them. And I'd have to agree with that. With a little steak sauce, "Where's Waldo?" can taste just like "Gone With The Wind." (Not what that means? Um, never mind.) But what kind…

Jan. 5, 2022

It was such a pleasure to speak to an actual member of the Podcasting Hall of Fame. I don't think I could ever be inducted, because it would be followed with a few asterisks and a disclaimer of, "After a few beers, it seemed…

Sept. 15, 2021

I do certain shows that I call "Oprah episodes." Stuff that has important messages for the listener. (No one gets a car. Not even me) It can't be all Marshmallow Fluff, right? Can it? (Stop saying it can, you there with the …

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Steven Jay Rubin!

Jan. 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 …
