    Thanks, Jerry Seinfeld

    in Education

    So glad to be back on this week!


    We got recent news, updates and resources for you, plus:
    What could be wrong with an adult publicly disclosing how he identifies?


    Sharing some personal insight, Jerry Seinfeld recently revealed in an interview that he thinks he is probably on the spectrum. And the autism community reacted. The positive, welcoming responses came out in spades from many autistic advocates, while some complained that he is "too successful" to really be autistic. And it dodn't stop there.


    Bath and Body Works has been a successful business, but is experiencing backlash after several of its stores reportedly told people with disabilities to get out, or were blocked from coming in at all.


    We'll dish it out on all of this on today's show.


    Thanks to our talented interns and volunteers for helping to keep our radio program going.

    Jerry Seinfeld and the Backtrack

    in Pop Culture

    Jerry Seinfeld stirred up some controversy after telling NBC's Brian Williams that he identifies with the autism spectrum. The reactions were immediate and passionate.Some activists have said that Jerry was shamed and bullied back into the closet.


    Last week, Jerry reportedly backtracked. Outlets like the LA Times are claiming he self--diagnosed, and that he is now "recanting."


    So, what is really going on? Did Jerry self--diagnose and then backtrack? Did he disclose that he identified, then felt the need to clarify---or backtrack?  Is it all a misunderstanding? Does it matter?


    The Thanksgiving holiday is just days away. What are you thankful for?


    We are thankful for you. We are thankful for the ability to continue with this show and its internship program.


    Along with bringing you these shows, the program serves as an internship for autistic individuals to gain valuable experience in radio show production.


    To learn more about the show, the internship program, sponsorship, or requests, please see the website.


    As always, we thank each of the volunteers and interns for their hard work and dedication.


    From our family to yours--have a safe, joyful holiday.

    FILM DIRECTOR JOHN WATERS & SEINFELD WRITER PETER MEHLMAN

    in Entertainment

    Laughter comes to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday October 15, 3 pm ET when Halli brings you two of the funniest people on the planet. Joining Halli is esteemed director and author John Waters and Seinfeld writer and author Peter Mehlman.


    John Waters is an American filmmaker, actor, writer and visual artist best known for his cult films, including Hairspray, Pink Flamingos, and Cecil B. DeMented. He is also the author of ROLE MODELS, CRACKPOT and SHOCK VALUE. His new book CARSICK tells the hilarious story of  America’s most beloved eccentric’s mid-life crisis journey: a cross-country hitchhiking journey.


    Peter Mehlman began his career at the Washington Post. He slid to television in 1982, writing for SportsBeat with Howard Cossell. He has written for numerous national publications, including The New York Times Magazine, GQ, Esquire, and a multitude of women’s magazines. One year after moving to Los Angeles he ran into Seinfeld writer and producer Larry David, which led to Mehlman’s writing the first freelance episode of the popular TV Show, rose to executive producer and coined such phrases as “yada yada” and “double dipping.” His new novel IT WON’T ALWAYS BE THIS GREAT is a brilliantly funny story of the mid-life crisis of a Long Island podiatrist that begins on a sub-zero, wind-chilled Friday night when the podiatrist crosses paths with a bottle of horseradish.


    We could all do with a dose of laughter. Laugh yourselves silly, Wednesday, October 15, 3 pm ET on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when Halli talks with John Waters and Peter Mehlman. We are Talk Radio for Fine Minds and Lovers of Humor. Tune in live online at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

    Peterman Goes It Alone? John O'Hurley's One Man Show

    in Comedy

    So the show is called a Man with Standards.  Explain that.


    So how much musing and how much music?


    You’re comedic in most things you do, but will there be some poignant moments in the show?


    Is this a scripted show or can you break format and do what you feel the audience might be wanting?


    That was one of the things I loved about live TV.  You are out there without a net.  This has to be such a trip because you have to pull them in from the backseats.  Will you use other media in it?


     


    So if I go to this show since I know you, can I heckle or correct you?


    The 1-man show is getting popular again. I saw Billy Crystal’s show and it was very compelling.  Why are we seeing this now in this social media age?


    You’ve been inspirational to a lot of folks, including me.  Your forging ahead spirit – no matter what – is what I always admire.  We came from West Hartford with great families and great lifestyles.  And yet that was something – and you’ve said this before – you had to overcome to get in the entertainment business.  Explain that.


    Will the Uber adorable Will O’Hurley make any appearances in this show?


    So how much am I mentioned in the show?  I am not.  OK interview over.
