Before connecting with Judy, John wrote special comedy material for Lily Tomlin, Linda Lavin, and Eartha Kitt. His comedy number about a girl who fell in love with Mr. Clean attracted the attention of a famous ad agency, BBD&O, and he was offered a high-paying copywriter's position. But, after a few weeks, John, feeling stifled, left the agency to make his way as a pianist, playing the songs he'd always loved -in clubs, at resorts, on the QE2 and even on a luxury train like the Orient Express. As a writer, collaborating with director Paul Bartel, John wrote the screenplay for a movie, Not For Publication and also the script for an episode of Steven Spielberg's Amazing Stories; he also provided the musical scores for each of these with orchestrator Larry Hochman. With co-producer Bobbie Horowitz, John traveled to London to produce his own, film-noir satirical musical, The Betrayal of Nora Blake. “Funniest show of the year” said the reviewers. Most appropriately, today, we must mention the memoir John wrote about the thrilling eight weeks he spent as Judy Garland's boyfriend, manager and songwriter.

Who killed Wharlest Jackson Sr.? In investigating the unsolved 1967 murder of a local NAACP leader, "American Reckoning" reveals an untold story of the civil rights movement and Black resistance. The feature-length documentary from FRONTLINE and Retro Report, with support from Chasing the Dream, draws on rarely seen footage filmed by Ed Pincus and David Neuman more than 50 years ago in Natchez, Mississippi, and made available through the Amistad Research Center. In following the Jackson family's search for answers, "American Reckoning" also taps into the groundbreaking reporting of journalist Stanley Nelson, who investigated allegations of the involvement of a Ku Klux Klan offshoot, known as the Silver Dollar Group. From acclaimed directors, producers and journalists Brad Lichtenstein ("When Claude Got Shot," "As Goes Janesville") and Yoruba Richen ("The Killing of Breonna Taylor," "The Sit In: Harry Belafonte Hosts the Tonight Show"), "American Reckoning" is the latest component of FRONTLINE's multiplatform initiative "Un(re)solved," telling the stories of more than 150 victims of civil rights era killings for whom there has been no justice.

I explain my findings regarding Elon Musk's plan for global domination, Madeline talks about the wild foraged ingredients you can find in local PNW cuisine. We bond over our common dopamine regulation deficiencies (ADHD). And we recount some of our finest memories from Ilwaco High School. Topics include: Is Elon Musk the antichrist? What is the Mandela Effect and is it proof that we live in a simulation? The surprising history of drugs like MDMA and Psilocybin. Technologies that will define our future. I really enjoyed making this episode. Madeline was a fantastic guest and I couldn't be more grateful for her candor, her humor, and most of all, her patience (it took me a long time to finish it).

In 1967, Ayn Rand made three controversial appearances in the space of four months on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, including one that hasn't been heard publicly since its broadcast. In this YouTube livestream event, join Elan Journo and Tom Bowden as they discuss the cultural context of the 1960s, Rand's ground rules for appearing on Carson's show, the topics covered in the interviews, Carson's conversational skills and intellectual courage, and the strong audience response. Stay tuned for podcasts featuring all three interviews, in which Rand addresses an astonishing range of issues, from basic principles of philosophy to reasoned opinions on current events and cultural trends to lighthearted banter. Rand stoked controversy and pulled no punches. She declared her reasoned opposition to the Vietnam War, the military draft, and to a papal encyclical attacking the moral foundations of Western civilization — while expressing support for rational self-interest, the pursuit of individual happiness, political freedom, Romantic art, and the novels of Mickey Spillane. Although Rand would in later years give long-form interviews to Phil Donahue, Tom Snyder and others, these three Johnny Carson interviews remain unsurpassed for sheer breadth. Join us for a trip back to a time when talk-show discussions of highly contentious issues could be calm, focused, intelligent and rational.
Gary Bernard Altman was a disc jockey and voice actor. Like many radio personalities, he changed his name. Gary Owens was best known for his work on Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In. He was the announcer on the show and added totally off-the-wall recitations. We'll give you an example when I play some of his album “The Presidents” during this podcast. Gary started his career as a news reporter at KORN in Mitchell, South Dakota and moved to several stations before landing a job at KMPC in Los Angeles. Owens coined the phrase “Beautiful Downtown Burbank” which was used on Laugh-In and the Tonight Show.

Growing up, our teachers handed us grades. Every A told us that we were succeeding, that we shouldn't worry. But after college, there are no grades. It's up to us to figure out how we're doing, and that can lead to lots of anxiety, confusion, and the general feeling that we don't know what we're doing with our lives. Today's guest, Jamie Burton, can relate. She's a 24-year-old media personality (and old friend of mine) who currently lives in Savannah, GA. She graduated from Penn State University in 2020 with a degree in broadcast journalism and the intention that she'd spend the rest of her career reporting on the news. But that's not how it's panned out. On today's episode, we discuss: Why she left her on-air TV job in Savannah, GA, just 10 months after getting it (1:17) How young people today view work differently than prior generations (9:26) Her new podcast and long-term goals for the media company she's launching (14:15) The revolving door of relationships in our lives (26:20) Learning to accept that we don't know where our lives are going to take us (30:10) Stories from her summer interning at The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon (36:16) To support Jamie, simply give her a follow on Instagram @jaamieburton and follow "Chicks and Dip" on your favorite podcast app. For more from me, you can subscribe for FREE to receive my new blog posts about life in your 20s directly to your inbox.
