    S2E16 - Season 2 Finale - An Interview with Kevin Spirtas

    We've come to the end of Season 2! They discuss the ups and downs of Season 2 while, of course, reviewing some of he latest movies and television shows. Alan and Joey had been invited to the cast & crew screening of "After Forever", the Prime Video series now airing its third and final season and decided to have as their final guest, actor Kevin Spirtas, best known for paying the dashing Dr. Craig Wesley on NBC's "Days of Our Lives." Among his many credits is Nick in the slasher film Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988) which, of course, is our favorite.

    Meet Desmond Child, the amazing songwriter and producer who was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2008.

His demeanor is fun and the Two Guys have some great fun with him as Desmond opens up about how he broke into the business, his Cuban roots, his favorite collaborator and so much more.

    S2E14 - Rant & Rave - Just Alan & Joey

    Many listeners have requested that Alan and Joey do an episode on their own, without a guest. The holidays felt like the best time not to intrude upon a guest appearance so the Two Guys sat down and ranted and raved about some of their most unfavorite things, from driving while texting, mixing and matching designer labels and the general complacency of the world! Join them so you can complain a little alongside the pros!

    S2E13 - Walkaway - Conversation with Democrat defector Brandon Straka

    S2E13 - Walkaway - Conversation with Democrat defector Brandon Straka

    Interview with Brandon Straka - interesting and a little combative. Born and raised in rural Nebraska and now a resident of New York City, Brandon created and promotes his #WalkAway Campaign message and his desire to bring a new awareness and understanding to the reality of politics in America today. He left his hatred for Trump and the Democratic party and "walked away" to the MAGA Republicans where he claims his mission is to unify America. We thought his message, while interesting, was a bit extreme in that he feels to fix America means burning the government to the ground. The most interesting takeaway here is that we agreed with Brandon on many topics and it was clear we wanted many of the same things despite our opposing party affiliations. We just felt there was a different way of achieving the goals than "walking away."

    S2E12 - The Real T & Me : Two Decades with Tina Turner - A Conversation with Eddy Armani

    S2E12 - The Real T & Me : Two Decades with Tina Turner - A Conversation with Eddy Armani

    Exclusive interview with the author of THE REAL T AND ME: Two Decades of Love, Life, and Friendship with Tina Turner, which is publishing for the first time in North America on the same day this podcast premieres. At a young age Eddy used to pray he would become Tina's best friend and, years later, through perseverance and ingenuity, he met Ike & Tina Turner when he was only 14 years old and started their fan club. Then he lived through the tumultuous breakup of their marriage and became Tina's personal assistant, confidant, travel companion, and eventually became the person who created her new look as she broke into mega-stardom on her own. 
    His story is, without a doubt, the most honest and intimate access to the private side of this international rock superstar and you will come away loving her even more!

    S2E11 - Blowback - An Interview with Whistleblower Miles Taylor

    S2E11 - Blowback - An Interview with Whistleblower Miles Taylor

    It all started with an anonymous piece in the NY Times in 2018 from a high source inside the Trump administration who revealed publicly what Trump's cabinet members were saying privately - that the President was unstable and unfit for office. While serving in top roles in the Department of Homeland security, Taylor had witnessed shocking acts of corruption that led him, with the support of other high ranking Republicans within the administration, to write the essay and, later, a book about his observations. Now, Miles, under his own name, has published a second book which appeared on the NY Times Bestseller List. We had the opportunity to speak with this conservative patriot and ask about some of the things he saw and why he's so concerned about Trump's, or a facsimile, return to the oval office. We also pressed him on what he does and doesn't like about the new direction of the GOP and the Biden administration.
    It sounds like a sobering episode and much of it is but, you know the Two Guys. They are not going to allow the destruction our of democracy to get in the way of humor and, surprisingly, this serious author blended right in. Anderson Cooper and Kanye West on the Stink list. Why?

Listening in the Mitten! ,

Look forward to many more podcast to come!

I am an avid listener of Two Guys from Hollywood podcasts. I enjoy the banter between Joey and Alan as much as the eclectic mix of guests. Being friends for decades, you can feel their genuine respect and admiration for one another. The conversations between Joey and Alan, and with their guests, are lively, fun, entertaining and informative.
