    EP.18: The Power to Change the World - A Conversation with Sonia Nassery Cole

    This week on Two Guys from Hollywood, we’re talking about pushing boundaries. These boundaries might mean the measurements of your pants after you’ve eaten incredible Italian food for a week, or, the way creators, innovators and artists bring their projects to life. From Anthony Bourdain to *someone’s* waistline, we’re covering it all. Joining the conversation is the one and only Sonia Nassery Cole. Sonia is an extremely talented filmmaker, philanthropist, author and human rights activist – not to mention a great friend. Sonia knows everything about pushing boundaries as she was granted political asylum in the United States from Afghanistan as a teenager, and went on to work with President Ronald Regan to aid in the defeat of the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. Yes, you read that correctly. If the President of the most powerful nation in the world looks you dead in the eye and asks: “One person has the power to change the world. Do you want to be that person?,” what would you do? Tune in to hear her incredible story, how she made her first feature film THE BLACK TULIP (which was selected as Afghanistan’s official selection for the Academy Awards!) and learn not just about the history of the tumultuous relationship between the US and her home country, but all about her new film set to release this month, I AM YOU. Sonia is a fascinating, talented, brilliant and generous woman who’s humanitarian work, films, and legacy will be remembered for a long time to come. Listen to the episode now to hear the full story. As always, we have a guest-inspired cocktail of the week! This week enjoy the ONCE BITTEN, TWICE CHAI.

    EP.15: Dangerous Beauty - A Conversation with Bruce Hulse

    EP.15: Dangerous Beauty - A Conversation with Bruce Hulse

    On this week’s episode, we’re talking about the difference between inner and outer beauty, and how one affects the other. The entertainment industry is a place filled with beautiful people from actors to models to influencers, but does outer beauty automatically lead to a happy and healthy life? Joining the conversation is male model and photographer Bruce Hulse. Not only has Bruce built a hugely successful career over the past few decades (you may know him as “The Calvin Klein Man”,) and was named one of the top 10 male models of all time, but he is also a student of Buddhism, a family man and a lifelong surfer boy. This episode he talks about balancing the sexy, fun and risky world of modeling, with that of being a seeker - someone searching to balance out their soul. Rock and Roll? Yes. Drugs? Yes. Sex? Yes, lots of it. Tune in for great insight into the wild world of modeling, and read his book, Sex, Love and Fashion for even more incredible stories. As always, we have a guest-inspired cocktail of the week! This week enjoy THE SUNSET ON IPANEMA. Find the full recipe and more on @twoguysfromhollywood on Instagram, and @TGFHPodcast on Twitter and Facebook. Cheers!

    EP.14: The Science of World Building - A Conversation with Richard Morgan

    Ever wonder what it’s like to be in an airport lounge with Tina Turner while someone mistakes her for Aretha Franklin? Well, you’ll hear all about Joey’s experience and other great Tina stories, along with Alan and Joey’s thoughts on her new documentary. They also dive into the new Gucci movie starring Lady Gaga and Adam Driver, and what Alan’s client Patricia Gucci *really* thinks of the whole thing (spoiler: she’s not pleased with certain elements). And joining the conversation this week is sci-fi and fantasy author Richard Morgan to discuss the science of world building, something he’s built an impressive career doing. Richard is the author of 9 novels, one of which, ALTERED CARBON, was made into a hit Netflix series of the same name. They talk world building, his process (or lack thereof) and what it’s like to be a consultant on a tv show adapted from something that started as an idea inside your head. Richard tells the story of how his career got started and gives great advice to all the authors out there trying to get their work published. As always, we have a guest-inspired cocktail of the week! This week enjoy THE ALTERED PERCEPTION (hold onto your hats for this one). Find the full recipe and more on @twoguysfromhollywood on Instagram, and @TGFHPodcast on Twitter and Facebook. Cheers!

ReasonWinsOut ,

A Refreshing Combination of Humor, Class, Intellect, and Relevance

This is the only show of its kind out there but it should be the paradigm for talk-show podcast formats moving forward. This remarkably engaging pair of on-air talent delivers pertinent conversation that summons the best facets of their distinct and quite clearly multi-dimensional personalities. Great show.
