Daytime Justice

Shelagh Ratner is in my cubicle to talk about working behind the scenes on Dancing With The Stars, The Biggest Loser, The MTV Movie Awards, The Mindy Project, and more. She's a comedian and in between being on-camera, she works behind the scenes as a stand in on all of these shows. I'm fascinated by this because union stand in work pays VERY well. I'm too tiny to stand in for actors, not tiny enough to stand in for Peter Dinklage.

Ben is a great guy who started producing his own content at his college's TV station in San Diego. That set him up to crush it in L.A. Now he's the host of Idiotest on GSN. He also has his own podcast on Kevin Smith's Smodcast network. It's called The Last Man On Earth and is available on iTunes. But before you listen to his podcast, get to know him on mine.

Jeffrey is a genius improv comic. Go see him at UCB Sunset where his team, The Agenda, performs regularly. We all have side hustles and his is that of being a casting producer. He finds the people you love to hate on reality shows. His most recent show that's on the air now is one he loved working on called "Bride and Prejudice" on FYI. Be sure to check that out, too!

Matt and I work out together at Flywheel and Sweat Garage, but we also do comedy and work in TV production. Matt has a great stories about practicing law in NYC, moving to L.A. and selling his first TV show, and true crime stories. We also played a speed around where I ask him if certain things ever happened to him while practicing law (they all happened to me) and they're yes or no questions. It's very interesting to ask an attorney if some of the stuff that's happened to me has happened to him/her because it hasn't and they're always like, "Wait, that happened to you?" Yes... yes, it did. He's coming to AZ and FL to do stand up in the next two weeks so make sure you go to mattrittercomedy.com for locations and showtimes! He's great! He'd love to see some Daytime Justice fans out on the road.

Tuesday Thomas is a lovely lady I know from the LA comedy scene. I asked her to do the podcast to talk about being a litigant on "We The People", which is NOT a real court show, people! It's fake. They are actors who are paid $50 to show up and be a fake litigant. As we talked about her experience on that court show, it came out that she was also on the original Ricki Lake show that originated in the early 90s. She was also on "Botched!" on E! back in October. She is a wonderful, funny person with a huge heart and she's got some great behind the scenes stories!

This was so good I had to release it as a bonus episode. Don't get used to this, even though I've done this just about every Sunday! Ha! Mickey Ramos is a rad producer. She tells the story of working on Buck Wild and being on location when they found Shane Gandee's body. She's got great stories about working on Paradise Hotel, Slednecks, and MXC: Maximum Extreme Challenge. But the most horrifying is her recounting of being attacked by Africanized Killer Bees and how she thought she wasn't going to make it out alive. Her story is chilling. We end the interview on an up note, though! Hint: South Park.

Jim Bruce, stand up comedian and fellow podcaster is in my cubicle to talk about being the warm up comic on Style Court. He was also a litigant on Moral Court, the same show Jerome Cleary from Eps. 27 was on. Jim is a great talker and knows a lot about TV. He has a really interesting perspective on real vs. fake court shows.

Gary Steiner is a retired Sergeant for the Santa Monica Police Department. Currently he's a private investigator and a court recognized expert on confession evidence and interviews and interrogations. He's an unbiased, compassionate guy who searches for the truth. This is a powerful episode, especially when he reveals why he had such empathy for families of victims of homicides when he worked homicide with Santa Monica PD. I met him at the Making A Murderer event at the W Hotel that was put on by the Westside Bar Association.

Alan is a DELIGHT. You are gonna crack up at this guy. Once he gets warmed up, there's no going back! He has great stories about the first time he saw Nancy Grace, a sweeps case that he booked on Judge Joe Brown that turned out to be fake, and how one juggles their dating life while juggling litigants. This is a fun one!
