    Milling About with Tate Donovan

    in Entertainment

    Tate Donovan, currently starring in the Oscar nominated Argo, and Deception on the small screen joins host Robin Milling. Some might remember Tate as Joshua, Jennifer Aniston's on and off again boyfriend on Friends, the concerned parent from The O.C., or Glenn Close's loyal law partner on Damages. Deception is the Monday night guilty pleasure which has everyone wondering whether Tate's character murdered his sister.
    Tate tells Robin how his college days at USC rooming with Grant Heslov, who went on to become production partners with George Clooney, gave him a leg up casting him in Good Night and Good Luck and now Argo. Donovan is rooting for his buddy Grant whose film is sweeping the awards circuit, including director Ben Affleck who Tate says taught him a thing or two about directing.
    Tate got his break behind the camera with the California based television series The O.C. taking advantage of his free time between takes to shadow the director. Most recently he directed an episode of Deception which brought him back to the scene of his childhood. He says staging a shoot-out at the Bronx bakery where his family frequented from New Jersey with six siblings in tow was a big thrill especially having his mother there on the set.

    Resolutions/Return of the Light w/Karen Tate - Goddess Calling Audio Book Series

    in Spirituality

    Resolutions & Return of the Light is the next installment in the Goddess Calling: Inspirational Messages and Meditations audio book series.  Listeners said they wanted to hear more from the hostess of the show, Karen Tate.  They said they'd like to be able to "listen" to her book when they're multi-tasking rather than have to sit down and read it - so now you're getting your wish.  We have a dozen audio messages & meditations "in the can" and they'll be released every 3-4 weeks to fill much of 2016.  Resolutions and Return of the Light is intended for the early part of the year, during the time of Winter Solstice, Candlemas, and Brigit as as we begin to awake from our slumber and gestation in the darkness and start to think about the potential of the new year, life, renewing ourselves once again and the coming light.
