Overnight America Podcast: April 1st, 2016 – “Is it the Weekend Yet?” Edition

In today’s world there are mega-multiplex’s with 18 or more screens available each with a different film on it.  And, you walk up to the box office at the local theatre not sure whether to see the latest romantic comedy or the horror film that everyone is talking about.  This is why we go to the experts from TheWrap.com and the Linoleum-Knife Podcast.  Dave White is our go to guy for deciphering if its a win or a flop before you spend money at the concession stand.  This week Dave talks to us about “Gods Not Dead 2” and “Everybody Wants Some”.

 

If it is on the small screen then chances our Ed Bark from UncleBarky.com has seen it.  This is why we bring long-time television critic Ed in each week to talk about what we saw on the tv and what we might see next week.  This week Ed talks about “Empire” and more.

 

Everyone wants to be naked and famous…  …or not.  But we are often curious how they are doing.  This is why we sit down with Melody Chiu each week to talk about the latest issue of People Magazine.  This week Melody talks about Donald Trump, Kendall Jenner, and more.

 

Howard Behar is a renowned business leader, author, speaker, and mentor. He served at Starbucks for a combined twenty-one years as both an officer and a board member. He was the president of North America and the founding president of Starbucks International.  Howard joined us to talk about his new book “The Magic Cup”.  Howard quickly involves us in an engrossing fantasy, continually challenging us to compare each situation with our own real-life experiences. The story of “The Magic Cup” helps each of us discover that only by acting on sound moral principles can we fill our own cups with the personal and professional success and satisfaction we seek.

Cruz Contreras from the band The Black Lillies stopped in the morning to talk about Houston’s not-so-great name as “Stolen Music Gear Capital of the World” and how it has affected his band.  Bands all over the country have noted an uptick in gear being stolen while they are on tour and most cities are not immune.  However, Houston seems to be getting hit the worse.  Cruz talks to us about what its like to go through this frightening ordeal and how it can cost some band up to $100,000 to replace the missing gear.

 

Are ya hungry?  Of course you are.  Each week here on the show we sit down with our favorite James Beard Award nominee Cheffy Baby.  Cheffy takes us on a culinary journey through the world of food.  This week Cheffy talks about Friend Chicken Ice Cream, Chipotle spinning off a burger chain, and more.
