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 passion(s) with an audience, whether in writing, or on film. Plus, he was s…

Pigeon Hunting (No, not really!) with the Multi-Talented Katherine Brodsky of "Mind The Future"!!

Dec. 25, 2020

What a great Christmas present for an interview! Soooo much fun talking with Katherine, who's got too many talents ("Too Many Talents!" Does the Sherpa smell a podcast sequel?) that I can list in this space. I don't think I've had a guest who's discussed blowing things up, Mel Brooks' chair, making…

Oct. 14, 2020

You know it's serious stuff when there's a warning in the title! Lisa's book hadn't come out as of the writing of this Sherpa Sheet, but keep an eye open for it. I found Lisa's story to be fascinating. Imagine if YOU were in her position. What would you do? Fortunately, Lisa did not face a tragic o…

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Robert Wuhl! (Hollywood Week, Day 4 of 4)

Aug. 14, 2020

You know, maybe I could take a cue from Robert and call my show, "$herpa: Too Many Podca$t$!" Or not. That title looks like I fell asleep at my keyboard. Which I have done, so I speak from experience. Robert has had an amazing and impressive career, starting as a standup comic back in the 1980's, t…

Pat had soooo many stories to tell, along with being very knowledgeable about the backgrounds of many a Hollywood tale. He's one of those people you feel like you've known for a long time,even if you talk to him for a short time. Who else do you know who has stories of  Taco Tuesday, the Incredible…

Wow! What a way to wrap up Season 3! After this interview, I emailed Sean to tell him that he's the type of guest that I love having on my show. He was very interesting, and a lot of fun, too!

At long last, I get to release this episode! Not that anything was holding me back, I just got a bit bogged down. I really had a lot of fun interviewing Steve. Luckily I edited out most of my laughing. And there was ALOT!!!! Thanks so much for swinging by, Steve-the comedy world is indebted to you.

Get Happy...Again! Author Selene Castrovilla Is the Bonus Episode Guest!

March 17, 2020

A while back I interviewed Selene's co-author, Dr. Lindsay Kallen-Weisner about the book they wrote together. Lindsay was so much fun that I knew she wouldn't steer me wrong in recommending Selene for an interview. And she did not! Selene was such an interesting guest. You can hear the passion that…

Hanging Out with author/YouTuber Heather Lehrman and discussing bullying and cameo stardom!

Feb. 12, 2020

Heather had just finished a workout before our interview, which, coincidentally, so did I. (Napping is still considered working out, right? Anyone?) Not only did she work up a sweat in her workout, she put a lot of sweat into her book, " Bullied at the Dog Park ". Here's hoping that she gets the an…

It's Book Club, with Kristina and Marc "The Shark" Ritorto at the Sherpa Chalet!

Aug. 21, 2019

Book club, you say? Hey, if Oprah can do it ,so can I. Without the obscenely large paycheck, of course. Marc's incredibly lucky to be so talented and to have a talented family. Throughout the interview, i kept thinking in the back of my head, "If all of his daughters end up authoring their own book…

Stacy the Kid talks about joy and Tsoro in his podcast, "Jaunts and Faults"!

June 5, 2019

I guess we could call this edition of the Sherpa Sheet, "When the Sherpa met the Kid". And I certainly was glad to... Under the charge of overusing the word "interesting", I plead guilty, which I guess is better than pleading insanity. I really enjoyed my conversation with Stacy. He really knows a …
