    S2E3 - Cancel Culture - A Conversation with Melissa Rivers

    Who didn't love the iconic Joan Rives and her style of humor which dominated the airwaves for decades. With the new "cancel culture" how would Joan have navigated these waters? Luckily, Joan left an incredible ambassador behind in her daughter, Melissa, and we discuss her mom alongside her new and very funny book, LIES MY MOTHER TOLD ME.
    And, as always, Joey and Alan discuss some of the things that annoy them and, as always, catch up on their entertainment intake, especially the Dahmer series since Alan represented Lionel Dahmer's book A FATHER'S STORY.

    S2E1 - Politics & Politeness - A Conversation with Michael Fanone

    S2E1 - Politics & Politeness - A Conversation with Michael Fanone

    They’re back! Two Guys From Hollywood returns for Season Two. Continuing with their unique brand of humor for this grab-bag pop culture podcast, the Hollywood based literary agent, Alan Nevins and his longtime friend, celebrity chef & columnist, Joey Santos, return in their second season premier. It's a shocking, no holds barred interview with Michael Fanone, the officer nearly beaten to death on January 6th at the U.S. Capital who then later testified on national television for the Senate Investigative Committee.  The two hosts have captured a side of this conservative Republican and self proclaimed redneck that has yet been seen on any of the news networks promoting Fanone's new bestselling book, HOLD THE LINE.  Often touching and passionate yet done with style, humor and respect that ultimately creates a bond between these three men which feels like you’ve dropped in on their dinner conversation.   
    As in season one, we open with Joeys signature cocktail creation, and then the conversation quickly turns to opinionated observations by Fanone about how the most powerful people in government disrespected law enforcement and the hypocrisy of the members of Congress.  No one is spared here from the 24 hour news networks to “lunatic” Marjorie Taylor Greene, “Miss” Lindsey Graham and “Trump’s Bottom Bitches”.   You’ve probably not heard an interview quite like this!

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.

Love the chemistry between Joey and Alan. The guest interviews are great and so is the dialogue between Alan and Joey at the start of the podcast.
