    Season 2 Ep. 6 Jon Turteltaub

    Season 2 Ep. 6 Jon Turteltaub

    We were very fortunate to have the amazing and prolific Film Director, Jon Turteltaub, talk with us. He was a senior when we were freshmen at Beverly High. He got his first big break directing 3 Ninjas, which led to getting Cool Runnings. Then he went on to direct Phenomenon with John Travolta, the Kid with Bruce Willis and the National Treasure films with his old classmate Nicolas Cage. That’s just naming a few of his movies. He also Produces and Directs TV shows such as Jericho. He gives us all the inside scoop on being a director from BH and we also discuss his father who was a legendary writer on the Carol Burnette Show, Sanford and Son and What’s Happening. We also get into some of the humanitarian efforts he does to give back. He's got great stories about his career, working with Nicolas Cage, and even a story about Tom Hanks.

    Season 2 Ep. 5 Charles Rosin

    Season 2 Ep. 5 Charles Rosin

    In this episode we have Charles Rosin or Chuck. He graduated Beverly High in 1970 and we had a great talk about what the school was like in the 60’s. We got talking about politics and some of the historic events he lived through before getting to his prolific writing and producing career. He wrote on two of my all time favorite shows The White Shadow and Northern Exposure. He’s best known for his work on BH 90210. It was great to hear his stories about this show that was so popular around the world and so Beverly Hills. Now he does a weekly podcast about it:

    Season 2 Ep. 4 Nancy Radin (Fishman)

    This episode features Nancy Radin, if you went to Beverly Hills High School you might know her by her maiden name Nancy Fishman. She graduated from Beverly in 1970 and not long after came back to teach there in the Drama Department. Nancy and the other teachers had a profound influence on so many kids and so many of those kids are now bigshots in show business. Nancy talks about all her time at Beverly and also about her fight against cancer and how she uses her friends and humor to get through it. She keeps her spark through being a grandmother and continuing to do creative projects.
    Read her book: My Big C: Still Here After All These Years.

    Season 2 Ep. 3 Mindy Rickles

    Season 2 Ep. 3 Mindy Rickles

    In this episode we talk to the lovely, talented and funny Mindy Rickles. Mindy started as an actor and moved into comedy just the way her famous father the legendary Don Rickles did. She grew up in Beverly Hills her whole childhood, but only spent the 11 and 12th grade in public school at Beverly High. She describes herself as painfully shy as a kid, but had no problem getting up in front of a big audience and telling jokes. Check her out on Historic Roasts on Netflix (the one roasting Anne Frank) and coming soon to a comedy club near you.

    Season 2 Ep. 2 Sophia Grant

    Season 2 Ep. 2 Sophia Grant

    We were so happy to catch up with our classmate Sophia Grant. She is the Chief of Medical Services for the Riverside County Child Assessment Team and Medical Director of the Sexual Assault and Forensic Assessment Team. Sophia's parents are Jamaican and her father had an amazing journey from living with a dirt floor in Jamaica to becoming a doctor living in Beverly Hills. Sophia talks about her experiences growing up black in Beverly Hills, which is not a diverse city. She also talks about going to medical school at Meharry Medical College, which is a historically black college. Getting to go from a minority to the majority during her education gave her some really amazing insights that I wish everyone could experience. There's a lot to learn from in this episode and a lot of fun stories about Growing Up Beverly Hills!

I really enjoyed taping my podcast with Stacy and David. They are enthusiastic and terrific I have enjoyed listening to a number of podcasts, especially those of former students. I was delighted to be a part of the Performing Arts Department as a former student and then as a teacher. I wish Stacy and David loads of success with their fun podcast venture. 🤩🤩 Nancy Radin (Fishman)
