I had a great time discussing Hungry Trilobyte with Don Smith from The Life Radio Show, out of WWSU. We got to cover a lot of ground on why fandom helps people cope, and how to use it to prompt creativity and positivity. I cover my favorite Treks, analyze the newer Star Wars movies, and gush over MST3k in the 21st century.

Jack O’Halloran is an actor from one of the greatest eras of Hollywood filmmaking. Star of some of my favorite movies, like Superman and Superman II, Jack has some amazing insights into movies. In this episode, he and I discuss working with greats such as Marlon Brando, Chuck Norris, and Robert Mitchum. Jack also shares first-hand experience with the JFK assassination and the rise and fall of the drug war and organized crime. His current novel, Family Legacy, looks to tell the true history of the connection between the Kennedy family and the lives of ordinary Americans in the 20th century.
