Growing up, there was nothing quite like hearing your favorite celebrity have a yak with a local TV or radio show on their latest movie, series, or record (that’s the big black records, kids). What if you were lucky enough to pick up an overseas signal somewhere (the Atari hot wire?), You might even have heard a few minutes of conversation between an A-lister and a top jock. off the coast. Like finding a gold coin in a bathtub, right ?!
The best types of interviews were, and Again are, those that are not so much scripted and structured – although some The structure offers listeners and observers a welcome familiarity – but fluid conversations that play like a couple of strangers or old friends, getting to know each other or reconnecting, as it can be. There is no such thing as hearing something coming out of the mouth of a celebrity that makes you realize “shit, they’re like you and me!”.
I spent the first ten years of my career as a radio announcer – I know how difficult it is to run this panel and get more than the usual ‘heard it all before’ from an actor. or a musician. It’s not easy, especially when you have a publicist asking you to stick to a particular script or project …
Most commercial radio advertisers usually don’t have the opportunity – one topic for another day – but the podcast landscape. possesses changed things.
So if you can …
Discard the script. Say, “what the fuck is ..!”
Someone who does that brilliantly is Michael Rosenbaum. The “Smallville” alum (and the “Poolhall Junkies” actor; Google this indie gem and look for a copy!) “Inside of you” Podcast, but has the effortless ability to put its guests at ease to the point that within an hour or so, they really open up to the actor and the musician.
Whether it’s “Arrow” star Stephen Amell talking about his anxiety issues, the self-esteem hiccups of “Flash” star Danielle Panabaker (I spoke to Danielle about her interview with Michael at ‘a WB party at Comic-Con, and she agreed it’s just superb during the interview), or Kiefer Sutherland and Jason Patric recalling the moment they fell in love with the same woman (we all remember the Julia Roberts incident in the early ’90s, right? ?!), Rosenbaum’s interviews end up being some of the most intimate, honest and enriching media moments you’ll witness. You almost feel guilty for listening to a conversation that on the surface has no boundaries and isn’t afraid to go where other people are.
We will never say the phrase “shit, they’re like you and me!” More than listening to “Inside of You”.
Here are 5 episodes of “Inside of you” you have to get into your ears.

All of us – men and women – loved “Love”. This cute, endearing and graceful star of television’s “Party of Five” and big-screen teenage horror film “I Know What You Did Last Summer” has talent and intelligence. She’s also one of the cutest people you could ever meet – – I still remember reaching out to her for an interview about 20 years ago, when I was just starting out (“Yes !, of course that I will! ”). Nothing has ever been a problem. She wasn’t too good for anyone. Just a doll.
Unfortunately, she didn’t defend herself as much as we did. And it is not uncommon. In this intriguing and profound interview, Rosenbaum invites the actress and pop singer to talk about her mission to “love herself”, after struggling with self-esteem for so many years.
As a die-hard horror fan, let alone the Freddy Krueger buff, there was no way to skip this one. A funny, candid and insightful interview that explores a myriad of topics, including Englund’s relationship with Wes Craven. Next time, talk to her about putting on makeup once… more… once… but Michael? (you know you want it as much as me ..)
The legendary actress, probably best known for her role as Ellen Griswold on the “Vacations” series, isn’t holding back and isn’t afraid to be brutally honest about past relationships, colleagues and experiences, in this bloody fab chat. Here’s a little bit of his longtime relationship with Al Pacino.
After having a panic attack in the middle of the episode with Rosenbaum earlier, “Arrow” actor Stephen Amell returned to talk about the situation, how long he fought the black dog, and the techniques he had used to fight the black dog. ‘he uses to fight it. It’s one of those episodes that will make you feel, for lack of a better term, less alone.
While Rosenbaum first meets many of his guests, Welling is an old friend and colleague – he was his Clark’s Lex – and his interviews with the “Smallville” star play out exactly like that. They are warm, funny and really touching. These two clearly have great affection for each other and bounce back beautifully. I just hope The Fonz and Ritchie have this kind of great relationship off camera…
Chase the blues this world is currently offering in spades and subscribe to “Inside of You”:
(Rosenbaum even inspired me to come back to the airwaves after 15 years. Something I never thought I would do. * Cue the Chicago *).
