The Brian and Danielle Show


Episode 5: The Lost Martin Short Sessions


Ready for a trip into "The Brian and Danielle Show" vault? Join us for a fun walk down memory lane as Brian shares the nearly-three-decades-old tape of his first celebrity interview with none other than comedic genius Martin Short. Seems a recent issue of Vanity Fair reminded Brian about the long-lost interview. Now you can decide for yourself if Marty was "ambushed" (or "Pre-TMZ'd") by 18-year-old fanboy Brian. We think you'll enjoy hearing Martin Short just before his movie career took flight. (And who can resist listening to fledgling interviewer Brian?)  We couldn't agree more with the recent Vanity Fair article, which states that "Martin Short gives good talk show" -- even when he's being kind to a brand-new student radio reporter on his ill-fated first assignment.

Episode 4: The Jeff Nimoy Sessions


Let's hear it for shirtless selfies! In Episode 4 of "The Brian and Danielle Show," meet Jeff Nimoy, the blogger behind Cooking Caveman with Jeff Nimoy and the new e-book "The Cooking Caveman." Before we get to the diet that led to that ripped physique, you'll hear how a nice Jewish kid from Brooklyn found his way onto the set of "Three Men and a Baby" (thanks to his famous cousin, Leonard Nimoy), and then how he landed in Hollywood with a dream and a jar full of change. Find out how his successful "Bugs Bunny Rap" led to a bartending gig, how he scored an Emmy-winning stint with NFL Films, and how that led to a career in anime. Then you'll hear how a screenplay project led to Jeff's life-changing diet, which led to his popular blog and now his new dating website. It's all here in Episode 4. Enjoy meeting our delightful friend, Jeff.
