As a young mom, Amy Koppelman struggled with severe postpartum depression, haunted by dark thoughts of what she might do to herself or her child. One unusual part of her recovery was writing a novel about a struggling mom who lived out Amy's worst fears.   Now, 20 years later, that critically-acclaimed novel, A Mouthful of Air, has been re-published and Amy also is screenwriter and director of a new feature-length film by the same name, starring Academy Award-winning actress Amanda Seyfried. Both the book and the Sony film are just part of Amy's passionate effort to reduce the stigma of mental illness and increase understanding of maternal depression and how friends and family can support mothers in their recovery. Don't miss this unique and important conversation about an issue so many individuals and families confront!   HAVE YOU OR SOMEONE CLOSE TO YOU EXPERIENCED MATERNAL DEPRESSION? How did friends and family respond? And, to what extent were those responses helpful? In what ways do you think social media, with so many staged images of “perfectly happy moms,” may make it even harder for women to admit feelings of anxiety and depression?   WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT MATERNAL DEPRESSION? ❉ MATERNAL DEPRESSION AND ANXIETY: ESSENTIAL INFORMATION ABOUT INCIDENCE, IMPACT AND TREATMENT. It's important for all of us to understand the signs of maternal depression and anxiety, safe and effective treatment options and how family and friends can help. Psychiatrist Michelle Wiersgalla and psychologist Gabrielle Mauren join Marti & Erin for an informative and candid discussion everyone should hear.

Harry Shum Jr. has proven himself to be a dynamic force in Hollywood. While he is perhaps best known for his role as Mike Chang on the hit series Glee, Shum has consistently embodied complex and meaningful characters, bringing depth and magnetic energy to the screen. Shum was recently seen as the lead in Universal's romantic drama ALL MY LIFE, starring opposite Jessica Rothe. Inspired by real events, the film follows a couple whose wedding plans are thrown off course when the groom is diagnosed with liver cancer. All My Life released in theaters on Friday, December 4th, 2020. Also, upcoming, Shum stars in the technological thriller, BROADCAST SIGNAL INTRUSION, opposite Chris Sullivan and Kelley Mack. Inspired by actual broadcast interruptions that occurred in the Windy City in the late 1980s, and remain unsolved to this day, the film is an unsettling journey into our collective technological nightmares. He will soon be seen in A24's Sci-Fi film, EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE, starring opposite Michelle Yeoh, Stephanie Hsu, James Hong, Ke Huy Quan, and Jamie Lee Curtis, with the cryptic synopsis: It's about a 55 year old Chinese woman trying to finish her taxes. He recently wrapped production in Vancouver on McG's production for Netflix's LOVE HARD. This romantic comedy follows an LA girl, unlucky in love, who falls for an East Coast guy on a dating app and decides to surprise him for Christmas, only to discover that she's been catfished. Shum will be seen alongside Nina Dobrev and Jimmy O. Yang. His previous film credits include Warner Bros' massive hit CRAZY RICH ASIANS. The film, which features a historic all-Asian cast, was nominated for 2 Golden Globes, won Best Comedy at the Critics' Choice Awards, and was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture at the 2019 SAG awards. He also starred in the Netflix Original feature CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN DRAGON II - THE GREEN DESTINY, the sequel to the Academy Award-winning martial arts film, Crouching Tiger, set 20 years later. Other notable projects on the silver screen include ESCAPE PLAN 3: DEVIL'S STATION opposite Sylvester Stallone; BURN opposite Suki Waterhouse and Josh Hutcherson; CROUCHING TIGER HIDDEN DRAGON: SWORD OF DESTINY, REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS, MOMS' NIGHT OUT; STEP UP 2: THE STREETS, and WHITE FROG. Shum has numerous TV credits as well, including the fan favorite SHADOWHUNTERS on Freeform, in which he starred as the eccentric warlock MAGNUS BANE, for which he won the People's Choice Awards Male TV Star in 2018. The series is based on the bestselling YA fantasy series The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare and follows a teenage girl who discovers on her 18th birthday that she comes from a long line of Shadowhunters, a group of human-angel hybrids who hunt down demons. In addition, Shum starred in, produced and co-choreographed The LXD (LEGION OF EXTRAORDINARY DANCERS), an online dance adventure created by director Jon M. Chu (STEP UP 3D). Passionate about children, Shum has partnered with The Conscious Kid Organization, which focuses on education, research, and policy dedicated to equality and promoting healthy racial identity development in youth while supporting organizations, families, and educators in taking action to disrupt racism in young children. Shum's heart also lies in working with the Anti-Racist Children's Book Education Fund initiative through this organization. Born in San Jose, Costa Rica and raised in both Northern and Southern California, Shum began dancing in high school and soon after discovered acting. He currently resides in Los Angeles. ABOUT BROADCAST SIGNAL INTRUSION starring Harry Shum Jr. (Glee, Crazy Rich Asians), Chris Sullivan (This Is Us) , and Kelley Mack (The Walking Dead), in theaters and On Demand October 22nd While logging tapes of decades-old TV broadcasts, video archivist James (Harry Shum Jr.) discovers a surreal and disturbing clip that James believes is the product of a mysterious broadcast signal hacking. His discovery takes a sinister turn when he tracks down similar broadcast intrusions that send him on an obsessive mission. Now James must confront two very real possibilities: that the videos may be clues to a crime beyond all comprehension; and that whoever was behind them may be very aware that James is coming uncomfortably close to the truth. BROADCAST SIGNAL INTRUSION was inspired by actual broadcast interruptions that occurred in Chicago in the late 1980s, and remain unsolved to this day. The film is an unsettling journey into our collective technological nightmares, confronting our deepest, darkest fears of both man and machine.

We return home after the second World War to talk about the 1946 best picture winner ‘The Best Years of Our Lives'. Our cold open digs into the thematic storytelling in a movie's title and what they can imply to an audience before and after watching. It's impossible to speak about this post war film without honoring the wonderful performances by the three leading actors:  Fredric March, Dana Andrews, and Harold Russell. This year's Academy Awards limited 5 nominees in each category which lead to a lot of snubs and omissions.  We even discussed if fellow Best Picture nominee ‘It's a Wonderful Life' deserved the win over the post war melodrama. We question why Dana Andrews wasn't nominated for Best Actor and discuss why one of the actors won two Oscars for the same performance! This year marks the 75th anniversary of the classic 1946 film “The Best Years of Our Lives.” so join us in celebrating this beautiful picture!  If you like this episode and the show, please leave a review!

We all know and love M. Night Shyamalan as a world renowned director, producer and actor who was labeled “the next Spielberg” by Newsweek in 2002. His films have grossed over $3 billion globally with cult classics like The Sixth Sense which received nominations for the Academy Award for Best Director and Best Original Screenplay, Signs, The Last Airbender, and The Unbreakable Series. We may also be fans of Saleka, his daughter who is a singer songwriter and wrote an original song for his recent release, Old, with a voice smooth as silk reminiscent of old school R&B. But today, I'm honored to interview M. Night's wife, Bhavna Vaswani Shyamalan, who is the silent strength of the family and is the glue who is keeping it all together. For more than 15 years, Bhavna Shyamalan, PhD, has served in her role as co-founder and vice-president of the M. Night Shyamalan Foundation. The foundation focuses on discovering and supporting grassroots leaders around the world who are moving depressed communities out of poverty and oppression. These global leaders are empowering their communities by supporting social justice, equality, and access to basic needs such as food, water, and education. A deep belief in human-dignity and freedom as a birthright, as well as in our joint responsibility to become participants in the fight for social equity and justice, have been Dr. Shyamalan's driving force in creating and steering the efforts of the foundation. With an international upbringing and global perspective, Dr. Shyamalan has developed a keen awareness of the power of poverty to determine the life course of individuals, families, and communities by severely limiting opportunity and choice. The foundation leaders work to eliminate those barriers. More recently, Dr. Shyamalan has focused her foundation on helping the most disenfranchised communities; the forgotten and “disposable' people entrapped and exploited by modern day slavery and human trafficking. Although born in India, Bhavna was raised in Hong Kong before her family moved to the U.S. An immigrant herself, Dr. Shyamalan is keenly aware of the challenges posed to immigrants in any new country. Having travelled widely, however, her exposure to different people and cultures has not only reinforced her belief in the gift diversity brings, but also deepened her commitment to valuing each individual life. Dr. Shyamalan oversees the foundation's international grants, the implementation of its vision and mission, strategic growth, fundraising, and overall operations. Additionally, DR. B (as she is known in the fitness world) is co-owner at Vibe Vault Fit, a boutique fitness & wellness studio in PA, and has been teaching Dance Fitness classes since 2011. Dr.B's believes working out can be inspired, and should address health and fitness in all aspects, including body, mind, spirit. In addition to teaching dance fitness classes, Dr. B also manages the “mind” and “spirit” side of Vibe Vault Fit, running workshops, and talking about how to uplift our lives through the Vibe Vault Fit podcasts and blogs. Her vision for Vibe Vault Fit is to promote a warm community, that will walk together toward a healthier, more fulfilling, and extraordinary life. Dr. B sees wellness, like happiness, as a mindset. Her goal is to help you make your own wellness a priority and claim the life that is waiting for you. Earlier in her career, Dr. Shyamalan worked as a therapist in the counseling centers of Swarthmore College and St. Joseph's University. She earned her doctorate in Clinical Developmental Psychology from Bryn Mawr College and her B.A. in psychology from New York University.

In Episode 11, Bolton and Grace recap the 2002 film, Catch Me If You Can, and discuss the facts of the true crime story that the movie is based on. The movie was written by Jeff Nathanson and directed by Steven Spielberg and is based on the autobiography of the same name written by Frank Abagnale Jr. with Stan Redding . The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio as Frank Abagnale Jr., a self-proclaimed con man who contends that he successfully performed cons worth millions of dollars by posing as a Pan American World Airways pilot, a doctor, and a prosecutor - all before his 19th birthday. Tom Hanks plays Carl Hanratty, an FBI agent who chases and eventually apprehends Frank Abagnale Jr. Christopher Walken plays Frank Abagnale Sr. and Nathalie Baye plays Frank Jr.'s mother. There are cameos from various other famous actors and actresses and viewers will enjoy seeing who pops up next. The film is fast-paced and entertaining, but after reading the book “The Greatest Hoax on Earth: Catching Truth While We Still Can” by Alan C. Logan, viewers may be disappointed to compare investigative research to Frank Abagnale Jr. 's story.

He also had roles in a string of hit films like To Do For, Good Will Hunting, Oceans 11, 12 & 13, plus Gone Baby Gone directed by his older brother Ben. In 2009, he and his buddy Joaquin Phoenix decided to direct a Spinal Tap-Esque film where Joaquin would play a hyped-up version of himself becoming a hip hop star after winning an Oscar for Walk the Line. It was called I'm Still Here and was a flop in many ways, artistically and financially (he used his own money to fund it) plus, he was later sued by two women who worked for him for sexual assault and continual harassment on the set by him and his buddies on the set. This lawsuit has not stopped the press fawning over his talent. In this episode, we will talk about the two lawsuits and their aftermath.

Our Special Guest Today is Chef Suzanne Tracht, Owner of JAR + Actor Anne Heche Zagat Says of Chef Suzanne: “Walk into Suzanne Tracht's modern chophouse restaurant today, and it's as good as it was when it opened in 2001. The wood-paneled walls, the chic mushroomlike light fixtures, the warm tones — this dining room is recognizable from any angle, especially when it's used as a set for movies like "La La Land." Even when full, there's a soft hum to the place that makes dinner here great for business meetings, dates, and family gatherings. The bar is a good option for drop-ins, especially for martinis and complimentary potato chips and horseradish dip. Chef Suzanne Tracht has built JAR into one of the most beloved and successful restaurants in Los Angeles. Drawing inspiration from classic American comfort cuisine, JAR is a pilgrimage for passionate eaters and wine lovers from across the country. It's my favorite kind of restaurant: A classic chophouse imagined as only the great Chef Suzanne Tracht could imagine. Jar's interior evokes the aura of a timeless supper club, JAR has become an indelible part of the city's culture, even starring as a memorable location in the Academy Award-winning classic La La Land during a pivotal dramatic moment. Utilizing the very best in local ingredients, Chef Tracht delights in taking classic chophouse dishes—deviled eggs, blue cheese wedge salad, and prime steaks The widespread praise for JAR over the years includes acclaim from the late Pulitzer Prize-winning Los Angeles Times and LA Weekly restaurant critic Jonathan Gold, who gave JAR a coveted spot on his “101 Best Restaurants in LA” list every year since its inception. “Tracht's gift lies in her ability to reproduce the old tastes within a modern context,” wrote Mr. Gold, “so that the sautéed pea tendrils with garlic make as much sense as the creamed spinach, the duck-fried rice as the mashed potatoes, and the char siu-style pork chop as the prime filet mignon.” Chef Suzanne Tracht Prepares a Menu of her Favorite Dishes for the Thanksgiving Holiday Jar, present Thanksgiving Dinner Take-Out ready for pick up on Wednesday, November 25, 2021, with easy instructions for heating and preparing for the holiday home table.

Are we ready to talk about Keanu's best role in cinema? Ok, so it might not be exactly that, but I have a LOT of love for Francis Ford Coppola's lavish, sublime and gorgeous adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula. So much so that I don't even mind Keanu's stilted performance - it's no way as bad as many say it is, although that might be my bias shining through. It's a visual treat for the eyes, with stunning costume design by first-time costume designer Eiko Ishioka and incredibly practical in-camera special effects, headed by first-time visual effects director Roman Coppola (son of Francis Ford Coppola), as well as an unforgettable lead performance by the one and only Gary Oldman as Count Dracula; an icon of literature, TV and cinema for almost 100 years. This movie showed us that love, lust, sexual desire and terror are not mutually exclusive, and Coppola's vision would not only give us the only Academy Award-winning adaptation of the Dracula story, but also shape the way vampires (and the legendary Count himself) are portrayed in modern cinema.

This week we're decoding with the man who wrote the code - Terence Blanchard, composer of Fire Shut Up in My Bones. Not only is it the work that reopened the Met after its 18-month pandemic shutdown, but it's also the first opera by a Black composer ever to be performed there. Based on the 2014 memoir of the same name by New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow, Fire Shut Up in My Bones is a coming-of-age story about his childhood in a tiny town in northwest Louisiana.  From a young age, Charles knew he was different, not like his brothers or the other boys. After being sexually assaulted by his older cousin, he was consumed by shame, and especially when he began to feel attraction toward boys as well as girls. The South was not the place to be questioning one's sexual identity as a Black man in the 1970s and 80s. But in the aria “Peculiar Grace,” he puts his questions aside and looks forward to a brighter future. Host Rhiannon Giddens and her guests explore the experience of feeling like an outsider, and the life-changing path toward self-acceptance. Composer Terence Blanchard is a multiple Grammy-winning composer and jazz trumpeter. Fire Shut Up In My Bones is his second opera, and it premiered at Opera Theatre of St. Louis in 2019. He has scored countless films, and is known for his many collaborations with the film director Spike Lee, including most recently Da 5 Bloods and BlacKkKlansman. Each was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Score. He credits his father for his love of opera, and he has a particular fondness for Puccini's La bohème. Baritone Will Liverman is singing the role of Charles in the Met's production of Fire Shut Up In My Bones. While he was sitting on his couch during the pandemic, wondering if he'd ever get to sing in front of an audience again, he was invited to send an audition tape and landed the role just a few days later. Will has collaborated with D.J. and artist K-Rico to create The Factotum, a contemporary  adaptation of Rossini's The Barber of Seville for the Lyric Opera of Chicago. He is an alumnus of the Ryan Opera Center at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. Dr. E. Patrick Johnson is an artist, writer, and professor of Performance Studies and African American Studies at Northwestern, where he is also the Dean of the School of Communication. He is the author and editor of several award-winning books, including Sweet Tea: Black Gay Men of the South. His research for the book included dozens of interviews with men who were born, raised, and still live in the South, and he later adapted it into a staged-reading, Pouring Tea, as well as a full-length play and a documentary. He has received multiple awards both for his scholarship and his stage work.

Nicol Verheem: Teradek Nicol Verheem is a globally recognized leader and innovator, senior business executive, serial entrepreneur, and prolific angel investor. He has been recognized for his impact in the film industry with a lifetime achievement award from the Society of Camera Operators and an Academy Award for Sciences and Engineering, also known as a Technical Oscar. He was also recently recognized with the Innovator of the Year Award from the leading business journal in Orange County, California. Nicol currently serves on the Executive Management Board of The Vitec Group, as the Divisional CEO of Creative Solutions, and as the CEO of Teradek. As a technology leader, his is responsible for the strategy, roadmap, and execution of Teradek's highly recognized high tech video products driving more than $100M annual revenue -- with dominant market share across the globe. He is also a member of the Coaching for Leaders Academy. In this conversation, Nicol and I discuss how to take the ideas you hear in books, presentations, and podcasts — and make them your own. Nicol shares many examples of how he has done this in his organization in order grow a team that was ultimately recognized with an Academy Award. Plus, we discuss some of his mindsets that have helped drive the success of Teradek over the years. Key Points Leadership models aren't always molded to your organization or situation. Adapt the idea to make it a better fit for you. Well intended language by an expert might not match the culture of your organization. Don't hesitate to change a word or phrase to make sense to your team. Build relationships today with the people who will grow with you throughout your career. That's “networking for commoners.” When interviewing, ask people about their hobbies or interests in order to discover if you can lead them to live out their passions.
