According to several listeners of the podcast, it is the way the hosts combine the horror and grittiness of the crime itself with humor and passion. They include personal anecdotes that make the episodes a little less intense and easier to listen to.

One fan even said that the duo gives “important messages about empowerment, mental illness, and getting through the rough spots in life” through each of the episodes. 

This podcast has over 350 episodes, and each episode averages about an hour in length. You might want to use earphones or headphones if you are around kids, or your family, because there is some explicit language, all in good fun though!

The show also boasts of a huge, widely acclaimed collection of guest speakers who are experts in their respective fields. From episodes on WWE’s Wrestlemania to the NBA and everything in between, Batard does a great job of covering it all.

One listener even said that listening to this show is much like hanging out with a group of friends every day. It is full of inside jokes that take you a little while to get used to, but once you’re in, you’re in!

The amazing thing about this podcast is that it has something new for you almost every day, sometimes even multiple times a day. If you’re just hanging out with your buddies, we would recommend you put on a couple episodes!

This podcast is hosted on a number of websites where you can stream all of the episodes for free.

The Glorious Corner



G.H. Harding

TRUMPED AT CANNES — What with Francis Ford Coppola’s Megalopolis and Kevin Costner’s Horizon garnering most of the pre-Cannes ink, it turns out that The Apprentice; the so-called rise of Donald Trump, has become to must-see attraction there.

Sebastian Stan

Starring Sebastian Stan

Sebastian Stan

and Jeremy Strong -as Roy Cohn-  its received the most attention after its screening this week. Check out this up-to-date spot from The Hollywood Reporter:

The Trump camp has threatened a lawsuit over a somewhat graphic scene between Trump and Ivana in the movie. The filmmaker Ali Abbasi has said that while the lawsuits may fly fast and furious from the Trump-camp, their success rate should be re-examined. A pretty savvy response if you ask me.

MORE TREK — (Via Deadline) Oscar winner  Holly Hunter has been tapped to star in Paramount+’s upcoming series Star Trek: Starfleet Academy. Hunter will play the captain and chancellor of Starfleet Academy in the series which will begin production later this summer.

Produced by CBS Studios, the series will follow the adventures of a new class of Starfleet cadets as they come of age in one of the most legendary places in the galaxy.

Per the logline: Star Trek: Starfleet Academy introduces viewers to a young group of cadets who come together to pursue a common dream of hope and optimism. Under the watchful and demanding eyes of their instructors, they discover what it takes to become Starfleet officers as they navigate blossoming friendships, explosive rivalries, first loves and a new enemy that threatens both the Academy and the Federation itself.

As a Treker-from the 60’s, where the hell is the next proper Star Trek-movie with Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto? They both were fantastic in my mind. Into Darkness was sensational? Weird for sure.

Michael Jackson and Ron Alexenburg

SHORT TAKES — Record-industry icon Ron Alexenburg is penning his autobiography to be called From The Warehouse To The Penthouse. Alexenburg, when he ran Epic Records, worked with everyone from Michael Jackson to Meat Loaf, Boston, The Beach Boys, and Charlie Daniels. Here’s a great interview with him:

Oddly, he doesn’t mention his Infinity Records opus, where I worked with him. The opening night party for the label was at the NY Public Library in NYC. It was an awesome event …

Speaking of books, Dave Mason’s Only You Know and I Know is finally out after a massive delay. I saw a video of him opening the first box. Apparently it is only available through his website. Good luck Dave …

We haven’t seen Kevin Costner’s Horizon yet, but a report from Roger Friedman (Showbiz 411), claims Costner doesn’t even appear in the movie for the first hour. Really? …

Christopher Reeve

Great Hamptons Film Festival exclusive by Roger Friedman. Check it out: … And, great spot on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show on the new book from Michael McDonald with Paul Reiser (What A Fool Believes/DEY Street):

RIP Fred Roos.

Shoshana Bean Joins West End Superstar Bradley Jaden At Sony Hall



West End Superstar Bradley Jaden will make his US debut on Monday June 3rd at Sony Hall along with the iconic, two time Tony Award and Grammy Award nominee Shoshana Bean, currently starring on Broadway in Alicia Keys hit musical Hell’s Kitchen, which is up for 13 Tony Award nominations.

Jaden, fresh from his acclaimed performance in Cameron Mackintosh’s new production of Stephen Sondheim’s Old Friends, at the Gielgud Theatre, will bring his own show Live In Concert to New York City for his US debut ahead of two sold out dates at Cadogan Hall in London. Later in the year he will embark on the Les Misérables Arena Spectacular World Tour recreating the role of ‘Javert’.

Bradley has starred in some of the West End’s most enduring productions including his unforgettable performance as ‘Javert’ in Les Misérables, Fiyero in Wicked and ‘Raoul’ in a new production of The Phantom of the Opera in Trieste, Italy. Other West End theatre credits include Shrek The Musical, Side Show in Concert and Treason The Musical.

Jaden will be recreating the role of ‘Javert’ in the Les Misérables Arena Spectacular which embarks on a World Tour from this September with a cast and orchestra of over 65. He will share the role with Michael Ball, playing opposite Killian Donnelly’s ‘Jean Valjean’.

He is not only one of musical theatre’s most successful leading men, but he’s also a star of the small screen, having seamlessly transitioned to the world of soap, taking roles in both EastEnders as Sonia Fowler’s flatmate ‘Jed’ and in Emmerdale where he played ‘Ben’.

Award nomination in the “Distinguished Performance” category, and a Drama Desk nomination for “Outstanding Featured Performance.” Her performance in the Public Theater’s Hell’s Kitchen earned her a Lucille Lortel Award nomination in the “Outstanding Featured Performer in a Musical” category. In 2022, she received Tony and Grammy nominations for her starring role as Susan Young opposite Billy Crystal in Broadway’s Mr. Saturday Night. She previously starred on Broadway as the first replacement for Elphaba in Wicked and as Jenna in Waitress.

Independent Hollywood Studios Feel Impact of Mergers



Hollywood and independent studios are contenders in one of the biggest battles to date in the entertainment industry. M&A advisory services are all a part of the script that just keeps getting re-write after re-write in the field. Recent mergers and acquisitions have fundamentally influenced the creative contours of filmmaking and distribution, forever transforming the landscape for small independent studios.

The journey toward conglomerate dominance in Hollywood can be traced back to the late 20th century when companies recognized the lucrative potential of owning both content and the means to distribute it. This realization sparked high-profile mergers and acquisitions, resulting in a media landscape dominated by a few powerhouse entities such as Disney, WarnerMedia, and Netflix.

Equipped with vast resources, these conglomerates set out to acquire entertainment assets such as film studios, television networks, and streaming platforms. Disney’s acquisition of 21st Century Fox in 2019 stands as a watershed moment, symbolizing the pinnacle of conglomerate expansion and demonstrating the formidable power these entities wield in dictating the market.

Mergers and acquisitions concentrate media ownership into fewer hands,” explains Philip Alberstat, experienced media producer and managing director at Embarc Advisors. “Where once there were over a dozen major film studios, there are now five, alongside emerging streaming platforms. Tech companies and streaming providers increasingly control more and more aspects of the media value chain, from content production to distribution. Amazon, for instance, now produces and releases original content through its Prime Video streaming service.”

Traditional revenue streams from box office sales, DVD/Blu-ray sales, and syndication rights no longer exist. Today, the subscription model dominates how the industry generates revenue. Moreover, tech and streaming conglomerates are expanding on a global scale, reaching markets previously inaccessible to traditional media companies. This global reach fosters a broader diversity of content aimed at international audiences.The growing supremacy of conglomerates presents a significant challenge for independent studios, which serve as the industry’s bedrock of creativity and innovation. Lacking the financial muscle and distribution networks of their conglomerate counterparts, these smaller entities find themselves in an increasingly precarious position.

“In terms of films, the major theatre chains need large productions to fill seats,” Alberstat observes. “Large conglomerates release high-budget films and extensive marketing campaigns, while independent films rarely gain visibility and audience traction. On the television side of the business, independent studios are now forced to partner with one of the large broadcasters or streaming companies. After this, they rarely retain measurable ownership in their projects and essentially become work-for-hire entities.”

As Alberstat explains, conglomerates’ control over distribution channels — especially with the advent of streaming services — further marginalizes independent studios. Streaming platforms like Netflix and Amazon changed the rules of engagement by prioritizing content that attracts and retains subscribers, sidelining independents in the process. Furthermore, the consolidation of film distribution channels and streaming services under massive media conglomerates limits the avenues through which independent studios can release their content. These platforms prioritize in-house productions or those of closely affiliated studios, relegating independent content to less favorable terms or outright exclusion.

“Conglomerates have entrenched relationships with major distribution channels, including theaters and streaming platforms,” notes Alberstat. “Since independent studios cannot easily secure favorable distribution deals, they rely on film festivals, smaller distributors, and direct digital distribution. And because streamers commission and distribute their own content, independent studios must partner with them to produce television content.”

Independent studios once thrived on their ability to push creative boundaries, exploring niche subjects, unconventional narratives, and innovative storytelling techniques. However, the current climate imposes considerable risks on those who dare to diverge from mainstream tastes and trends. In this atmosphere, the potential for groundbreaking work is tempered by the financial ramifications of a project’s failure.

“There is extreme pressure to create commercially viable content,” warns Alberstat. “Balancing artistic integrity with financial sustainability can be particularly challenging in a market that favors mainstream appeal.”

According to Alberstat, independent studios will continue to face an uphill battle when creating and producing content. Platforms like Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+, and HBO Max cater to viewers who prefer on-demand content accessible on multiple devices. To thrive, studios must prioritize direct-to-streaming releases and develop original content for these platforms.

Additionally, the success of platforms like YouTube, TikTok, and Instagram indicates an audience appetite for quick, digestible media. As a result, producers are exploring new formats and series that are shorter in duration.

Finally, the ability to binge entire seasons in one sitting has shifted production and release strategies across the industry. Networks and platforms now often release whole seasons simultaneously to capitalize on this trend, affecting everything from a producer’s narrative structures to the studio’s marketing campaigns.

“Today, the independent studio model is virtually extinct,” says Alberstat. “For example, Participant Media recently shut its doors after 20 years despite 21 Academy Awards and 18 Emmys. Ultimately, the future of independent cinema and media production will depend greatly on the ability of small studios to adapt, innovate, and collaborate. They must not only survive the difficult changes brought about by industry consolidation but also thrive by forging new paths in the cinematic arts.”
