Join me and Kevin Smith on a podcast

I was the guest on Kevin Smith & Matt Mira's podcast.   It was great fun.  I got to gas off about myself and swear for 90 minutes!   A narcissist's dream.   Here's where you can go to hear it.  Thanks again to Kevin and Matt for having me on and hopefully you will still have an audience next week.

Hi Ken, now that you are best friends with Kevin Smith can you ask him if he plays in a recreational hockey league and uses that jersey? And is the name of the team the Blacksmiths? That is one awesome jersey.

Also Ken, you are one class act for deactivating comments in the previous post. I imagine most actors loved working with you.

I had Shakespearean comments for Under Andrea and you've deprived the world of this now. Me liked it good, that's all the praise you get now. Also, you sounded fat in the podcast.

As someone who saw "Under Andrea" live (although I'm not certain whether the week I attended is the particular version shown here), I wanted to put in a good word for this. Check it out.

How much research did you and Mr. Isaacs conduct before writing "Under Andrea"?

Very enjoyable interview. I enjoy the podcast, too. It got me to watch/re-watch the complete run of FRASIER over the last two months (I probably saw about half of them first run and half the rest in syndication over the years, so quite a few were new to me). Just for fun I watched it in almost completely random order (the only exception being some two-part episodes). Most of it holds up really good.

Question about those under-$1 residual checks you hear about, is there any reason they don't move into the 21st century and get some sort of electronic system, so you can just get a consolidated check for everything you're owed at regular intervals (say once a month or whenever the balance gets to $100), along with a printout or download (pdf or spreadsheet) that itemizes each payment for tax purposes? Seems that would pay for itself by eliminating piddling little checks and the accompanying paperwork.

Hi Ken, I discovered your blog after I started watching Cheers a few weeks back, but it was your appearance on Talk Salad and Scrambled Eggs today that really enamored me. I love your insights and the way you approach the industry. I have a Friday question, and I really apologize because I know this has been asked before but I can't find any links to old answers:

I graduated from college a couple of months ago, and I just moved to Los Angeles in order to break in to the screenwriting world, mostly television, so my question of course is how do I do that? Right now I'm delivering pizza in South Central, which is terrifying, but it's all I can do to pay the bills. I've got no contacts at all. If I have a script, where do I send it? Who would want to read it? When do I join a guild? I'm just not sure where to start. Thanks again, really appreciate your work and helpful advice.

I want one of those Silent Bob jerseys!

Never mind the jersey. I'm interested in the French poster behind you two. What did the whole thing say?

Katie said...

Great podcast! I really enjoyed it.

Johnny Walker said...

Fantastic stuff! I hope they make their way through the writing team.

Just finished listening to you on Talk Salad and Scrambled eggs. I'm a huge follower of Kevin Smith and he has been an inspiration for me. I have started my own podcast and a blog, www.HubrisNostalgia.com on Weebly.com. I never knew who you were and never watched Frasier until I started listening to this podcast. You are an incredibly interesting person to here about and from. I have always been an avid movie and show junky and have learned that guys behind the scenes are way more interesting than the stars themselves. When I was younger I thought of Frasier as an old person's show, now at the age of 34, I totally get the jokes and I really love the show. Thanks to yourself, Mr. Levine, and Kevin for instilling within me knowledge of shows that have escaped me in there hay day.
