I'm fortunate to call Ben Maller a friend. He does overnights on Fox Sports Radio. And while he is a success overnights -- he’s not an overnight success. Ben’s been at this for more than 20 years -- including being a pioneer in the blogging arena. We start off talking about his Clippers and our Dodgers, what the Angels need to do to get Mike Trout and Shohei Otani into the playoffs, we talk LeBron James and the Lakers, but also discuss the losses we’ve suffered in the last 7 months: my wife, and his dad.

PJ Butta: The Nightcap

2021-06-0332:15

PJ Butta is an LA hip hop radio icon from the 92.3 The Beat days in the 90’s to now doing afternoons on the legendary KDAY. In addition to his on-air work he teaches broadcasting, runs his own podcast network, and pours The Nightcap weeknights at 8pm Pacific / 11pm Eastern on IG Live playing slow jams in front of the fireplace — using that platform to help people in need. All this fresh off of his 11-day battle with COVID. We discuss his inspiration for The Nightcap, the future of radio/audio, and he ranks his top 3 bourbons.

Kevin Cuenca is a former sports reporter turned content creator who’s driving in his own lane. Especially with a show like Cruisin with Kevin. He worked at CBS2/KCAL9 here in LA but as we talk about in this episode some of the content he was creating didn’t sit well with someone in management. We talk about the late Nipsey Hussle, his most painful tattoo, figuring out social media algorithms, and life as a Navy kid with an alcoholic father.

Chef Andrew Gruel is a Southern California culinary icon, with seafood restaurant Slapfish, chicken joint Two Birds and pineapple-free pizza place Big Parm under his umbrella. He’s had the Food Network spotlight on him for a while but he was thrust onto a different stage during the pandemic going after Governor Newsom. Chef and I discuss his spontaneous partnership with Barstool’s Dave Portnoy, his country-crisscrossing career that started in New Jersey, how social media helped launch his business and his family, living with anxiety, and the major changes he’s seen in society and the kitchen.

Liberté Chan is one of my favorite people ever. For nearly a decade she was the meterologist on the KTLA Weekend Morning News but is now part of KTLA's LA Unscripted. We first talked two years ago for my previous podcast but a lot has changed since then. Before Liberté's mom passed away from pancreatic cancer she got to meet the man to whom Liberté is now engaged: Luis Strohmeier. We talk about how yoga helped Liberté get through her mom's passing and the pandemic, and how Luis's experience also helped guide her through the darkness.

Nick Hamilton is the owner of Nitecast Media — a new and proudly black-owned company covering all things sports and pop culture and more. Shoutout Big Brother Jake doing big things with Nitecast. Nick grew up in LA at a time when he says he wasn’t sure he’d make it to see 21, and for a time didn’t care whether he lived or died. Nick says even one day gave someone the power to make that choice for him. We discuss fatherhood and how it’s been for him raising an 8-year-old son with autism during the pandemic, maintaining mental health, his take on the Angels dumping Albert Pujols and the pickup by the Dodgers, we rate the two Chronic albums, even talk about Summer Jam, and whether he thinks I could’ve rocked a Cross Colours jacket back in the day.

Andy Riesmeyer is one of the hosts on the wildly successful KTLA 5 Live weekdays 4 to 6pm at KTLA.com and on the KTLA+ app with Samantha Cortese, Bobby Gonzalez and Robert Puente. We’ve been talking about doing a podcast for a couple years now and here it is. Finally! Andy moved out to LA to be a musician and ended up doing news on TV with the likes of Larry King, David Begnaud and Frank Buckley. But he’s still recording and posting music videos on Instagram. We cover the winding road that led him to Hollywood from Indiana. And that’s where he was when we talked in March. Andy was visiting family as his father was fighting pancreatic cancer. And sadly, since we recorded this conversation, Jeffrey Riesmeyer passed away. Andy and I discuss his time at KFI anchoring during (and our love for) The Tim Conway Jr Show and somehow we ended up talking about Mark Mester's jawline.

Freddy Rivera is an FM radio DJ at KOLA 99.9 in Riverside, California, host of the “Radio Flyer” podcast, and a pilot! He’s a SoCal guy I knew from my iHeartRadio days. We'd run into each other as I worked for KFI and he was producing for JoJo on the Radio on 102.7 KIIS FM, and then he rocked overnights on the legendary station. He moved to Dallas to host afternoons on 102.9 Now KDMX but as we talk about in this episode it just wasn't the right fit.

Sarah Talbi was born without arms. But a lot has changed the last few years for the 30-something living in Belgium. Sarah has become a mother, taken up painting, and built up quite a following on social media. We talk about lots of things she CAN do like take care of her daughter, cook, and everyday tasks like put on a bra. But it seems people put more limitations on her than she puts on herself. We discuss how instrumental her family was in normalizing her disability, what her almost 3-year-old says and asks about mommy's arms, her ONE frustration in life, and also one of the few things she's been unable to do by herself: travel. Sarah and I also talk about what it was like for her parents when they discovered they were having a baby with no arms, and for her when she learned she was pregnant.

Aron Bender is joined by Jim Linahan who is ... hilarious! LanaFans know what I'm talking about! I found Jim by way of the KTLA Weekend Morning News. I don't watch KTLA on Saturday and Sunday mornings, I watch Jim watch KTLA Saturday and Sunday mornings by way of his Instagram stories https://www.instagram.com/jimlanahan/. Jim's a podcast host (Jim Lanahan & Friends, linked below), a certified life coach, a producer and manager. He's also the caregiver for his mom who had a stroke in 2017. We talk about his relationship with his mom growing up, since he came out, and since her stroke, his abusive father, his diabetes, Jim's favorite Broadway and movie musicals, he ranks his top 3 iced coffees, and what he thinks should happen to anyone who orders a vanilla Frosty at Wendy's instead of the classic chocolate Frosty. Such a fun, insightful convo! And let me take this opportunity to thank Jim for connecting me with super agent David Brunner, whose network DB&A TV is now showing The Aron Bender Podcast every night at 11pm.

Aron Bender talks with journalist and entrepreneur Silva Harapetian. She was born in Iran. Her family fled that country for Germany when she was 12, and a few years later moved to the United States. I’ve known Silva for 20 years now, since we worked together at KMPH NewsRadio in Fresno. She’s since worked in several markets, including Austin, Detroit and Miami. In this episode we talk about the importance of mental health and self care — especially as a journalist, a woman, a person of color. We also discuss life in war-torn Iran, adjusting to a relatively brief stay in Germany, navigating life in the US as the oldest child in an immigrant family — and how she adjusted not just during the pandemic but when her life was forced to change in 2018.

Julie Chang is a TV journalist most recently with Fox 11 here in Los Angeles but she also spent a lot of time working in New York. She’s a wife, a mother of two adorable little ones, an activist, an actress, and a brain tumor survivor. She’s also the founder of 940 Life, which she explains in this quick conversation that we had to squeeze into an afternoon a few weeks ago is about the 940 weekends we have with our children from the time they're born to when they turn 18. Here's the trailer on her YouTube channel "940 with Julie Chang." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfTX4Bx4dAM Julie and I talked about the crimes targeting the Asian American and Pacific Islander community, how she talks with (and learns from) her kids about racism, sliding into her now-husband's DMs, and how my late wife nudged her to say yes to coming on the podcast to begin with.
