    This week, Tommy is joined by actress Bailee Madison, currently starring in season 2 of the smash hit series, Pretty Little Liars: Summer School on Max.

    Oliver Stark of 9-1-1

    Oliver Stark of 9-1-1

    This week, Tommy is joined by actor Oliver Stark, best known for his starring role in the smash hit drama series 9-1-1, currently airing Season 7 on ABC. 9-1-1 is one of the most watched shows on primetime television, chronicling the high-pressure experiences of first responders who are thrust into the most frightening, shocking and heart-stopping situations. What makes this show even more special is that we get to also see these characters lives unfold once they hang up the firefighter gear for the day. Oliver plays the confident and compassionate firefighter, Evan Buckley (aka Buck) and quickly became a fan favorite on the show since day 1. Today, Oliver opens up about Buck’s realization that he is bisexual, why he will always stand by storylines that are about inclusion and love, the moment he decided to make an Instagram post to show support for the LGBTQ+ community, what he hopes we will see with Buck’s journey in the future, what he has most learned about himself through doing this show, the thing that Buck from Season 7 would tell Buck from Season 1, the relationship between Eddie and Buck that has many people talking about, and how he wishes he focused more on building friendships throughout the last decade of his life.

    Matteo Bocelli

    Matteo Bocelli

    This week, Tommy is joined by Matteo Bocelli who recently released his debut album, “Matteo.” His self-titled debut features 12 tracks, in a mix of English and his native Italian, including the single “Chasing Stars,” written by Ed & Matthew Sheeran. Matteo’s sound is so uniquely him and it is on full display as he embarks on his first solo step into the spotlight. Yes, he has released music previously with his father, the incredible Andrea Bocelli, but this album is Matteo’s baby. Today, Matteo opens up about when he first started to fall in love with singing, trusting the timing of when he was meant to go full-force in pursuing his passion for music, how his dad has always been the most influential person in his life, learning from one of the greatest voices in the world and the pressure that comes with that, developing his own sound and stepping into his own artistry, what excites him the most with his debut album, how he has always admired Ed Sheeran and hopes to collaborate with him in the future, what his first world tour has been like, and the greatest life lessons he has learned from his father.

    Edvin Ryding of Young Royals

    Edvin Ryding of Young Royals

    This week, Tommy is joined by actor Edvin Ryding, best known for his starring role in the Netflix smash-hit series, Young Royals. Edvin has played Prince Wilhelm of Sweden over the last three seasons in a show that has taken over the world. We have followed his journey with fellow student Simon Ericksson (played by Omar Rudberg) and all of the wild, messy, beautiful drama that their love story brings. Young Royals is one of the strongest representations of queer love ever created, which is one of the many reasons why so many people have fallen in love with this show. Today, Edvin opens up about what it was like saying goodbye to a role that meant so much to him, how he will forever be connected to his character Prince Wilhelm, if the ending of Young Royals was what he always imagined, what he thinks happens in the love story of Wilhelm and Simon, one of the most impactful moments in the entire series for him, what him and his co-star Omar are cooking up next with their secret project, that famous scene of his character removing his nail polish, some items he had to snatch from set after wrapping, and how he always strives to dream big, but live even bigger.

    Tanner Buchanan (of Cobra Kai/How to Date Billy Walsh)

    Tanner Buchanan (of Cobra Kai/How to Date Billy Walsh)

    This week, Tommy is joined by actor Tanner Buchanan, best known for stealing the world’s attention in his breakout role of Robby in the hit Netflix series, Cobra Kai. Cobra Kai is the sequel to the original Karate Kid films, and the sixth and final season is set to release later this year. But next up, Tanner can be seen in the romantic comedy How To Date Billy Walsh, out now on Amazon. Today, Tanner opens up about how he can relate to feeling misunderstood like his character Billy Walsh, how we all have multiple layers that make up who we are, why we shouldn’t be defined by other people’s perception of us, his journey of becoming comfortable in his own skin, why it’s still hard to get used to seeing himself on a movie poster, what we can expect in the final season of Cobra Kai, how the filming process has been going over the last few months (hint: lots of Advil has been used), and how you too can master a slow motion walk.

    Skylar Astin of So Help Me Todd

    This week, Tommy is joined by actor Skylar Astin, best known for his star-making role as Jesse in the hit Pitch Perfect franchise. Skylar has so many incredible credits to his name, but today we are talking about one show that millions of people are tuning into each week and for good reason. He currently stars in the hit CBS show, So Help Me Todd. Skylar stars as Todd, a directionless but talented private investigator who works alongside his mom (played by the brilliant Marcia Gay Harden), at her successful law firm. Today, he opens up about what its really like starring in a fast-paced dramedy, what’s coming down the line for the rest of Season 2, how he worked his singing into the series in an unexpected way, how the projects that turned him into a household name will forever hold a special place in his heart, the importance of living his life with gratitude and remaining humble in Hollywood, why he will never tell someone they can’t do something, and how his cast felt like “The Beatles of 49th street” during his Spring Awakening days.

Easy Win

Tommy Didario has an effortless interviewing style that belies how in depth his questions are of his guests. He brings out the best of his guests, and I can’t wait each week for the next one to drop. This podcast is a must for any true pop culture/media fan.

Danielle and Caterina

All five star reviews. Tommy manages to bring out the best in all of his guests, but I found it particularly so with these two. He doesn’t dig too much as to cause hurt or violate privacy, but still manages to make the guests feel comfortable and they are forthcoming with him as a result. 💫
