    Eliza Taylor and Bob Morley of The 100

    Eliza Taylor and Bob Morley of The 100

    This week, Tommy is joined by acting powerhouses Eliza Taylor and Bob Morley for a rare joint interview. They are best known for their starring roles in the post-apocalyptic smash-hit television series, The 100, which ran for an incredible 7 seasons. The internet crowns The 100 as one of “the greatest TV shows of all time,” and for good reason. Aside from this fan-favorite series, you can currently watch Bob in Love Me and In Limbo, streaming on Hulu, and you can catch Eliza on NBC’s Quantum Leap season 2 streaming on Peacock. Today Eliza and Bob open up about what they miss the most about being on The 100, how they are both eager to play their characters again, what playing the network’s first openly bisexual character meant to Eliza, what they have learned about themselves through being on a series for so many years, the moment Bob realized he needed to protect his mental health towards the end of filming the 100, what they want to see if a reboot happens, how they prioritize their marriage while being parents and having demanding careers, balancing feeling proud and successful of their work while worrying about what comes next, and something that they both want to share for the first time in hopes of helping other people feel less alone.

    Bre-Z of All American

    Bre-Z of All American

    This week, Tommy is joined by the incredibly talented rapper and actress Bre-Z. She rose to worldwide fame playing Freda Gatz on the hit Fox drama Empire, working alongside Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard. Fast forward to today, she currently stars in the CW hit show, All American, now in its sixth season. The 100th episode of All American airs this summer which is an incredible milestone that many shows don’t have the opportunity to reach. Today Bre-Z opens up about how working as a barber led her to the opportunity of a lifetime in Hollywood that changed her life forever, joining one of the most popular shows on television at the time for her very first acting job, how she pushed fear aside to just focus on the job in front of her, creating original songs for her role on Empire, what she most relates to playing Coop on All American, how the show tackles real-life topics in a way that makes audiences feel represented, why its okay to not know everything, remaining authentic in an industry that makes it very difficult to do so, why she proudly stepped into being a role model for visibility among a community of people who don’t feel seen, the importance of disconnecting from time to time to protect her mental health, and a powerful realization she had one year ago.

    This week, Tommy is joined by actress Lana Parrilla, currently playing a bad ass scientist in the #1 movie on Netflix, ATLAS. Lana teams up with Jennifer Lopez to tell an action-packed story about what can happen if we aren’t careful with how we continue to use and develop artificial intelligence.

Jared and Genevieve Padalecki of Supernatural/Walker

I’d never known about this podcast before this episode. This was refreshing in its approach and the care, empathy and respect with which Tommy broached several sensitive topics, especially with Jared, was wonderful and heartfelt. It was obvious Jared felt safe to be his true self. Kudos. I’m a dan now and will listen to future episodes. ❤️
