Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest.
Author Dwayne Epstein joins me this week to talk about his book - Lee Marvin: Point Blank.
The first full-length, authoritative, and detailed story of the iconic actor's life to go beyond the Hollywood scandal-sheet reporting of earlier books, this account offers an appreciation for the man and his acting career and the classic films he starred in, painting a portrait of an individual who took great risks in his acting and career. Although Lee Marvin is best known for his icy tough guy roles—such as his chilling titular villain in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance or the paternal yet brutally realistic platoon leader in The Big Red One—very little is known of his personal life; his family background; his experiences in WWII; his relationship with his father, family, friends, wives; and his ongoing battles with alcoholism, rage, and depression, occasioned by his postwar PTSD. Now, after years of researching and compiling interviews with family members, friends, and colleagues; rare photographs; and illustrative material, Hollywood writer Dwayne Epstein provides a full understanding and appreciation of this acting titan’s place in the Hollywood pantheon in spite of his very real and human struggles.

THE TOM BRADY EDITION:
In the newest developments around the NFL, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has upheld Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on integrity of the game, the league announced Tuesday.
The full final decision from Goodell can be read here, although it doesn't necessarily end this saga. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that Brady will sue. Brady's camp will seek an injunction on this suspension to try to keep Brady on the field.
The team debates today as WADE weighs in with some STRONG OPINIONS
Is Brady in the wrong? Does destroying his phone make him look guilty? Has the NFL overstepped their bounds?
Psalm 30:2Have mercy upon me O Lord; I am weak: O Lord, heal me; for my bones are vexed. 3:My soul is also sore vexed: but thou, O Lord, how long? 4:Return, O Lord, deliver my soul:oh save me for thy mercies sake. 5:For in death there is no rememberance of thee: in the grave who shall give thee thanks?
