Remembering Jerry Doyle, My Unlikely Pal

I’m sure Jerry Doyle, top syndicated radio host, Babylon 5 star, Conservative, EPIC TIMES founder, and all around big personality had no idea what to make of me the first time we spoke on his show. It took about thirty seconds for us to realize we were kindred spirits who could find common ground despite our differing politics. He labeled our first exchange “When Republicans...

What’s Being Done In Our Name?

What’s Being Done In Our Name?

The Senate’s CIA “torture” report has elicited little more than a collective shrug from the American people, if our most prominent news sources are to be believed.  I thought perhaps Americans are so stressed in their own lives, and beaten down by the endless scandal-mongering inherent in the 24-hour news cycle, they don’t want the responsibility of one more pound of weight.  Yet, according to...

Behind the Scenes in Hollywood with Jerry Doyle and Anita Finlay

Talking with Jerry Doyle yesterday, what started as a tangent to our conversation turned into a full blown interview about Hollywood’s underbelly.  We discuss the dust-up caused by racially insensitive comments of SONY Exec Amy Pascal and Producer Scott Rudin about President Obama  and cover the waterfront on everything from the truth behind political correctness to the damage done by Reality TV.  Nothing is off...

Catcalling, Halloween and “Slutty” French Fries: Have We Jumped the Shark?

It may be Halloween, but whenever top syndicated radio host Jerry Doyle and I get to talking, the sky’s the limit in our conversation.  First, Jerry starts by sharing Chris Rock’s lowdown on the top five “slutty” costumes.  Typically, we are focused on the behavior and dress of woman. But we seem to have gotten bored with “sexy nurse” and have moved on to the...

The Sting of Cross-Pollinating Entertainment, Politics & News – Anita Finlay & Jerry Doyle 9/30/14

In my recent post venting about The Good Wife‘s poor decision to have Presidential advisor Valerie Jarrett appear as herself on the show, Jerry Doyle and I discuss the cheapening of news, politics and entertainment by using each one as if it is nothing more than an advertisement for the other. We really have taken a shocking turn if the phrase “political theatre” can be...

Turning the Tables on Sexist Behavior – Anita Finlay & Jerry Doyle Talk

Today, a multi-media extravaganza that turns the tables on sexist behavior… First, Kansas City just became the latest in a list of cities considering a law against street harassment that would encompass everything from catcalls to drivers forcing bicyclists off the road.  Clearly, harassment is a crime, but is it possible to legislate respect?  The abuse discussed in HuffPo’s article Kansas City Might Outlaw Catcalling...

Ending Domestic Violence, a Talk with Anita Finlay & Jerry Doyle, 9/16/2014

Ray Rice’s indefinite suspension from the Baltimore Ravens for the physical abuse of his then fiancée Janay Palmer has sparked a national conversation about domestic violence. Even though the NFL seemed backed into a corner and had to hand out more severe punishment than its initially lenient “two game suspension,” it remains to be seen whether this subject will occupy a few more news cycles and then fade...

Anita Finlay & Jerry Doyle Talk Beyoncé, Sofia Vergara & Wardrobe Malfunctions 8/26/2014

Both the Emmys and VMA awards this week garnered very strong reactions, both positive and negative for the way women were portrayed. First, Beyoncé’s 16-minute tour de force medley of her new CD at the VMAs was hailed as a feminist masterpiece…though I can’t quite agree.  I was pleased she had a neon sign with the word “Feminist” behind her and I applaud her huge...

Anita Finlay & Jerry Doyle Talk Women in Leadership 7/18/2014

Jerry and I catch up on all things “vacational” and political before digging into my latest article asking if we are finally ready to embrace female leadership! I inquire whether a piece of pop culture, like the mighty Kacy Catanzaro shocking the world by completing the American Ninja Warrior Final’s course and beating out many men who could not even complete these herculean physical tasks,...
