    is it hard to be so close to soul sucking worthless,dangerous people in need of everthing you have,will there be anything left of you. How sad are the women locked in to the degreding facets of the porn industry.

  2. Sean says:

    This interviewer is terrible.

  3. Moses says:

    Wow. Great interview Riki Lindhome. You are so fun. Good to now that Jason Ritter is so a down to earth kind of guy. I love the whole “COOL” thing. Amazing start to a AWESOME Podcast!!!

  4. Todd Mason says:

    (REQUIEM and PATTERNS were among the plays Serling wrote for the television anthology series in the latter 1950s such as PLAYHOUSE 90 and STUDIO ONE).

  5. Todd Mason says:

    It probably won’t surprise anyone who didn’t know that Rod Serling wrote a lot of screenplays aside from REQUIEM FOR A HEAVYWEIGHT (his other most famous contemporary-mimetic play is PATTERNS, and he did any number of adaptations and [too often insufficiently] original plays for THE TWILIGHT ZONE and his other projects (including the early ’70s radio series ZERO HOUR). Though his most famous work now might just be one relatively few realized he did…the loose adaptation of the French novel PLANET OF THE APES.

    Interesting interview.

  6. Great discussion! #1 and #2 have been great insights into the entertainment industry. Will you be branching out into industries completely outside your own? I’d love to hear about fascinating careers I’ve never heard of… like candy designer.

    This podcast could be what guidance counselors SHOULD be.

    Can’t wait for more episodes!

    I really enjoyed the podcast — first saw Riki in her awesome guest-star turn in BIG BANG THEORY (“Again… ew.”) and discovered her Garfunkle & Oates stuff because of Chris guesting in the “I Don’t Understand Job” video. I only wish Riki had asked Jason about his excellent-but-cancelled sitcom THE CLASS, which my wife and I loved. Looking forward to more!

  8. Brian E. says:
