Cody Langley of "POPular Opinion" POPS in!

Jan. 15, 2021

"I'm pretty Southern. You might need subtitles for me." So said today's guest. Hey, if Cody was able to understand me, I wouldn't need subtitles. I was surprised that I'd learn even more about Funko Pops, when I never even knew about them a few months earlier.  Cody's YouTube channel is very unique…

Movie Talk

We're "Goin' Hollywood" with JD and The Ghost! (and I forgot to pack my bronzer!)

Jan. 13, 2021

So, who do you usually discuss movies with? Your friends,right? Whether it's a debate or a dialogue reference, those are best saved for your buddies. Which leads to a natural creation of 'Goin ' Hollywood " by JD and The Ghost. It's two guys with a strong love of the cinema and all the joys it brin…

1/3 of the "Three Geeks Podcast" + 1/2 of "Mat Talk"=Jason Taylor!

Jan. 8, 2021

Okay, so I'm not really good at math! And considering my mic went kerflooey right before the interview, not good at technology either (Update: Thanks to the folks at Samson for helping me out after the episode was recorded. Awesome people!) But we got through the interview unscathed, so that's a pl…

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…

Magician Anthony Presciutti Makes the Sherpa Disappear! (Wait, you were WISHING for That??!)

Jan. 1, 2021

I grew up being really into magic for some time. I love close-up and a good card trick. There used to be "Magic" magazine, where you'd actually get blueprints to build stage illusions Unfortunately, my parents' homeowners' insurance went up when I tried to recreate that "making the Hoover Dam disap…

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Liz Priestley!

Dec. 30, 2020

True story: Within 5 minutes of meeting on Zoom, Liz and I were already giggly. She liked my Paul McCartney impression, too.  Or, maybe someone spiked my yak milk, I'm not sure. Liz is the type of person that you can't help but root for. She brought such a down-to-earth quality to the Screening Roo…

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…

Interesting Occupations True Crime

Why can Sarah Alcorn of "Ivy League Murders" hunt down clues, while the Sherpa lives life without one?

Dec. 23, 2020

I got to speak to two amazing ladies this week, Rebels, and these interviews were so fascinating.! Today, I had the pleasure of speaking with Sarah Alcorn, a PI, who co-hosts this true crime podcast. The lady really knows a lot about crime, and about PI work. So be careful out there-she might be wo…

John Orlando's podcast is PVD-lightful! (Seriously,...I couldn't come up with a more clever title???!!)

Dec. 18, 2020

This was a fun interview, Rebels. I felt John was a really interesting guest, and I'm glad you get to hear this interview. I, too, had aspirations of becoming a pro wrestler, but I kept putting the mask on backwards. Which made walking to the ring quite a challenge. But John, nonetheless, made a ca…

Buckle Up! It's time to visit William Walley in the "World of Walley"!

Dec. 16, 2020

William Walley strikes me as a guy who could do a podcast solo and fill it with stories about his life. I'm sure he can draw upon his wealth of experiences quite easily. It was lots of fun getting to know him, even if he was a bit reluctant to do a Brooklyn accent. Not even south Brooklyn, William?…

Tuning In (and Geeking out) to "Earth Station One", with Mike Faber!!

Dec. 11, 2020

Not to sound like a broken record  (Um, doesn't a broken record make no sound?) but I love episodes where I get to learn stuff. Mike Faber was the perfect guy to introduce me to the "con" (convention) world. Especially for someone who's gone for a long time.And I learned about Dr. Who! Who? Oh, I'm…

Director

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Richard Burgin!

Dec. 9, 2020

Richard Burgin was really interesting to talk to. I won't give away too much, but you'll hear the inspiration behind "Fang", and how he used the tools and skills he has to get the project off the ground. I'm sure when his movie hits the big (or slightly smaller) screen, people will be in for a good…

The Election's Over, but Vote for Middagh Goodwin, Anyway!

Dec. 4, 2020

Before we started our interview, my first words to Middagh were, "Okay, I'm jealous." To which he responded, "Of what?" Well, I won't name names, but he was in a picture standing next to an 80's rocker I've been trying to get on the show. I keep getting, "Their schedule is full." While he DOES know…

Michael Spedden of "Fowl Players Radio" : from Hair-band god to Operatic Viking getting a structured settlement! (Well, kind of...)

Dec. 2, 2020

Seriously, could I keep mispronouncing Mike's name? ( The last name, not the first!) Mike is one of those people that you talk to for a short time, but you feel like you've known him a long time. He's much more than your average everyday Viking in a structured settlement commercial, trust me. There…

It's the guys from " Canned Air"! (Which is NOTHING like "Podcast In A Mason Jar")

Nov. 27, 2020

I can imagine Jack, Jeremy, and Randy running the world's coolest comic book and video store, after this interview. They have a deep passion for comics, movies, video games, etc., and it really shows. They love playing games with their listeners, so check out their show for more details. I'd love t…

Gators and Ducks and Gizmos, Oh my! It's Andy Imhof of "Pardon My Fork"!!

Nov. 25, 2020

So if it's real time, you're hearing this the day before Thanksgiving in the U.S. So, I'm guessing you're hungry already! I really learned alot from Andy and had fun doing so, talking about cooking, foodsport, and how to raise a non-neurotic duck. He's a super nice guy, whose show is well- beloved …

Yo, DJ, play that Podcast! Darran Bruce of "The DJ Sessions" is in the Mix!

Nov. 20, 2020

Darran Bruce strikes me as a guy who likes to be ahead of the curve. As opposed to me. who tends to trip on it, and get tangled up in it. What he says about playing copyrighted material is very important to podcasters,because so many don't know what the actual rules ae. Any music that I play on her…

The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Scotty Morris of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy!

Nov. 18, 2020

I really enjoyed talking to Scotty as much as I did mixing in the band's music for this episode! You can't just sit still and listen to it, although I must say my jitterbugging skills need serious repair, as do 2 lamps, a toaster oven, a nightstand, and half of my VHS collection of "Small Wonder", …
