"Best Director Award"(2012 LA Film, TV and Webisode Festival) winner, Alex Bram is on a mission to bring suspense, surrealism and quality back to horror.
Gaining support as a new voice, his various projects have been able to attract legendary figures of the genre rallying behind him. For his werewolf epic, “NEW BREED,” Special Creature Make-Up Effects legend Steve Johnson (“American Werewolf in London,” “Species”) has joined to deliver on the concept of applying the latest technology available, in the most tasteful yet terrifying way, to bring to life beasts like we’ve never seen before.
Eduardo Sanchez (Blair Witch Project Director) will bring Bram’s “CLOUDLAND” to life. That project is being spearheaded by Jeffrey Reddick, the creator of “Final Destination.” Reddick is both co-screenwriter with Bram and Executive Producer.
Alex Bram’s award-winning psychological thriller "Body of Work" honors the tradition of Alfred Hitchcock, while at the same time, using modern technology to bring about a new wave of suspenseful filmmaking. That film brought two "Best Cinematography" awards and one Canadian "People's Choice".
For three years, Bram founded and ran the "Carnival of Darkness Film Festival," which showcased the very best short horror films from around the world. This yearly event was held at Los Angeles Film School and was put on like a twisted carnival experience.
Sunday January 11, 2015, special guest will be GM Bram Frank.

Currently he is Director of Edged Weapons training @ the S2 Law Enforcement-Security Institute.

In what will become an ongoing overall conversation & a series of conversations, Barbara, Bram & The Social Spitball Show have committed to have guests on Racial Healing and related topics at least once a month.
For the second in our "Racial Healing" series, we have the honor of hosting featured guest BK Irons. BK is what he calls a "Conscious Comic," in that his humor awakens the consciousness of his audience on matters of great importance. It is in this spirit that BK recorded and produced a video called "Now That I've Got Your Attention."
This video (the audio of which was played during Dixon White's appearance on our show) addresses the very real timeline of the black experience in America from the point-of-view of a black male through history. We will play this again during this episode.
As with most issues that matter, there is of course a black female experience as well. With Madison Paige and other previous guests calling in, we are sure to get their perspective in a very long journey to equality and, simply, human recognition.
Please join BK Irons on this very important subject that needs to be brought to light over and over and over again. You will be better for it..I promise.
I am very grateful for the opportunity. Barbara & I can't wait to get this conversation going...

Last year Cara Prior & her husband Scott Prior ran to represent their Legislative District 16 (Arizona House & Arizona Senate, respectively). In a difficult year for Democrats across the nation, Cara and Scott came up short on winning their seats in the legislature. If you ask many politicians, though, persistence pays off in politics for the hard-working & determined representatives of the people. Cara and Scott have again declared for the offices they sought last year.
Tune in to hear from these progressive champions as they launch their 2016 campaigns for House & Senate in Arizona Legislative District 16 out of Apache Junction, Arizona. The Priors are champions for the working and middle classes, animals, the environment, fair trade, the LBGT community, net neutrality and many other progressive causes. They are co-hosts of the show "Progressive Voices of AZ" on Fridays.
On a recent edition of "Progressive Voices of AZ," Cara and Scott hosted Arizona activist Yolanda Bejarano on stopping the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Fast Track option of said "free trade agreement" with Asian countries. As Ms. Bejarano will reveal, previous free trade agreements approved by the United States have been disasters for American job creation and have hurt America's workers, as well as the economy of the United States.
With progressive champions like Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders in the U.S. Senate on her side, Ms. Bejarano joins The Social Spitball Show to get the rest of us on board to stopping the TPP and its Fast Track. Tune in and find out how you can help in this very important (and historic) effort!!
Barbara Dee & Bram Sarkowski are ready to "Put PROGRESS in Progressive" as we hear from these three progressive champions!!
Let's get the conversation going...

In the last election cycle (2014), we saw great movement on a lot of issues...in both good and bad directions. It was bad that 21 states had not moved forward on expanding Medicaid when we last talked with Lindsey Benage of Kansas.
The good news in that month that was rapidly moving toward what turned out to be a bad midterm election in terms of progress was that Lindsey & her networks had organized Medicaid expansion vigils in several states, including her home state of Kansas. The aims were to bring awareness to the numbers of people that could die without the benefits of Medicaid coverage and move legislators and government executives to take action on these matters of life and death.
A lot has happened in the last six months on the issue of Medicaid expansion. Barbara Dee & Bram Sarkowski will check in with our friend Lindsey Benage for the first time since October, 2014. We look forward to finding out what has been done and what we can do next!
Our second guest is a long time listener & supporter who does his part to combat the war being waged on the poor in this country in matters of medical care and other issues. He personally sees the urgent need for medical insurance and is irate with Governor Rick Scott for his treatment of those that would qualify for Medicaid if they expanded in Florida. There are other issues that those living on or below the poverty level deal with that we'll get into with Fred & Lindsey, as well.
There will be plenty to talk about in this episode. As always, we encourage you to call in with your comments or questions using the number (646) 478-3349!!
We look forward to hearing from you and from Lindsey and Fred!!!

Here on The #SocialSpitballShow, Barbara Dee & Bram Sarkowski strive to air the truth bit by bit on our broadcasts. The truth is relative to the observer.
For many of us, our struggles are financial, medical, family, etc. Most of us take our civil liberties for granted. Many still strive to achieve equality under the law. Members of the transgender community are fighting a fierce battle for something as simple (should be anyway) as their human rights and their rights as citizens of their country. In the United States, all men (and definitely women) are created equal and deserve to be treated accordingly.
Our guest for this episode is Janice Covington Allison, who knows all too well the struggles facing the LGBT community. She is a veteran, an active Democrat, an activist and a recent candidate for Chair of the North Carolina Democratic Party, breaking new ground for the Equality movement.
Please tune in at 7pm Eastern to hear from Janice as she shares her story and answers any questions you may have.
This is such a necessary and important conversation. Let's get the conversation going...
