Episode 77 - Special Guest! - TV Host Darren Kavinoky
This week Matt Ritter hosts solo because we scored a great interview with TV host Darren Kavinoky. Darren Kavinoky is the creator and host of the hit TV show, "Deadly Sins", which airs on Investigation Discovery. He is also a certified interventionist, attorney and legal analyst, and “misbehavior” expert who appears constantly on the Today show, The View, Entertainment Tonight, The Insider, Dr. Phil, Dr. Drew, CNN, HLN, Fox News, and countless other TV and radio shows.
Matt and Darren discuss his background, it's a truly inspirational tale filled with lots of ups and downs. If you're a struggling law student and you think grades are the be all and end all, think again.
More important than his professional accomplishments is the compelling inspirational tale he has to share.
Once an overweight kid from a dysfunctional family, he went on to suffer from his own addictions which plagued him for many years. To call his downward spiral a “bottom” is a gross understatement; Darren lost everything. But in May of 2000, after two decades of battling his demons, Darren experienced a pivotal moment. Since then, the kid who wore “husky” sized Toughskins has completed seven Ironman triathlons. The bankrupt attorney who swept floors in a furniture store created several multi-million dollar businesses. As an interventionist and as a speaker, Darren is now obsessed with helping people and organizations produce their own pivotal moments that are just as powerful.
Darren is a true “misbehavior” expert – his own and other people’s! This has given Darren a unique and refreshing perspective. He has the innate ability to authentically connect with people from all walks of life, from white collar to blue collar to no collar, a talent that has resulted in rave reviews from jurors, TV producers, and live audiences alike.
Darren is a speaker's speaker. He inspires audiences everywhere, and constantly gets glowing reviews. He’s described as a "dynamic, polished, inspiring, funny, and most importantly authentic" speaker. Besides his signature keynote, Be The Billboard, he is also asked to speak on topics as varied as media, negotiation, pop culture, branding, and of course, anything having to do with law.
Matt and Darren finish by getting in depth on the Donald Sterling issue, which Darren had a very interesting take on that you don't want to miss!

I would've given it 5 stars, but JL never listens to the interviewee. He only waits to tell a marginally funny joke. #sarcasm Good pod though for any law student.
I love the law and I love comedy, this is pretty much the only podcast that gives me both. Keep up the great work
Always a really good and informative listen. And its rare to get a funny look at the law.
