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 talked to us about “The Account”.


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 “Graves” and more.

A hilarious style guide for women from fashion guru Carson Kressley. Carson has spent the last decade transforming thousands of women and connecting with millions more on Oprah Winfrey, Good Morning America, and countless other national broadcasts. He knows what makes these ladies tick. Whether they live in Tacoma or Tallahassee, there is a common thread among them all: they want to feel beautiful but don’t know where to start. They’re frustrated by fashion and can’t figure out which trends to follow and which to flee. They don’t have gobs of money to drop on their wardrobe and feel left out of the game. And when it comes to how they feel about their bodies, all they see are roadblocks… and signs for Burger King!

Does This Book Make My Butt Look Big? Is a roadmap for the American everyday woman to build unshakable body confidence. Nowhere else is there a fun and accessible book created for the underserved masses of American women who just want to get out the door looking and feeling fabulous. These women need to reminded that fashion is FUN. They need to know that with the right tools, they have the power to transform their self-perception by shifting their mindset from woe-is-me to wow-is-me. They need the secrets of playing to their strengths and minimizing their flaws. They need to take more chances with pattern and color, and leave what doesn’t work in the dust. Most of all, they need Carson, their peppy, blond fairy god stylist, to show them the way!


There is only one question we ask you every Friday morning on the show; Are you Hungry? Of course you are and that is why sit down with our very own James Beard Award Nominee, Cheffy Baby.  Cheffy Baby talks about Johnsonville sausages, Paula Deen,  an Italian pizza contest, and more.
