    Xena-Warrior Princess creator John Schulian

    in Books

    "Pulp Friction with Paul Levine" presents:
    John Schulian went from being one of the country's foremost newspaper sports columnists to success in Hollywood as a TV writer-producer and co-creator of XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS.
    In the 1970s and '80s, his syndicated column for the Chicago Sun-Times and Philadelphia Daily News earned him comparisons to such sportswriting legends as Red Smith and A.J. Liebling.
    Schulian surprised friends and colleagues when he gave it all up in 1986 and broke into show business with a script for L.A. LAW. He went on to write for such iconic shows as MIAMI VICE and WISEGUY as well as the long-running hit JAG. But XENA, for better or worse, remains his crowning achievement.
    Schulian, who has written extensively for GQ and Sports Illustrated, is the author of three books, most recently SOMETIMES THEY EVEN SHOOK YOUR HAND, and the co-editor of AT THE FIGHTS. He is presently editing a collection of great football writing and laying the groundwork for what he hopes will be a cable drama about boxing.
    ABOUT THE HOST:
    The author of 17 novels, Paul Levine won the John D. MacDonald fiction award and was nominated for the Edgar, Macavity, International Thriller, and James Thurber prizes and is the author of the Lassiter mysteries.

    Get Ready to Root For the Bad Guy - Xena Villains

    in Television

    This month, as F4F Radio frequently does in May and November, we dive back into the world of Xena: Warrior Princess because, well, this is a fandom where you never run out of things to discuss. Otherwise there wouldn’t still be three gazillion Xena/Gabrielle shippers out there. Tonight, however, we’ll shift focus a little bit away from our favorite heroines and spend time with the most prominent VILLAINS from the television series – Ares the god of war, Callisto the insane vengeance-seeker, Caesar the would-be world conqueror, and Hope the harbinger of pure evil. You love them, you hate them, you love to hate them, maybe it’s all three, but we’re talking about all the reasons why. Author/filmmaker Kim Pritekel will once again be leading the discussion, and we'll be rejoined by the Xena fans who participated in previous segments - Kelly Neal, Zea Apa, Chris Salameno, and Adm_Hawthorne.

    Warrior Princess 102: Fans STILL Discussing 'Xena'

    in Television

    F4F Radio has been discussing "Xena: Warrior Princess", even now enormously popular among fans of lesbian pairings on TV because of the Xena/Gabrielle relationship, every six months for the past three years. In May 2012 it was time for a fifth conversation, and appropriately enough we welcomed back author/filmmaker Kim Pritekel, who had been involved with the previous three Xena shows as either a guest or a cohost. Rather than focus on fan fiction or "uberfic" that time, however, that night we began discussing the television show itself. Kim and I were joined, not by Xena fanfic authors, but by two more longtime fans of the show - Zea Apa and Kelly Neal. And we were prepared to talk about EVERYTHING we loved most about the show, from the subtext to the story arcs to the comedy.  What we were not prepared for was how much time we'd need.  When it was time to wrap up, we'd only covered HALF of what we wanted to discuss.  So tonight, everyone returns to pick up where we left off.  And this time, we'll also be joined by Adm_Hawthorne, a guest from my last Rizzoli & Isles show, who was slated to appear in May but couldn't make it. BATTLE ON!

    Interview With Debra Rogers

    in Entertainment

    He Did You A Favor is the first in a series of books that she’s designed to help you get off the couch, put down the ice cream and be the most awesome person in the world – YOU.


    Before He Did You a Favor, Debra worked the studio circuit for years as a script analyst and Development Associate for both film and television.  Her passion for story was further expanded as a writing consultant for numerous motion picture and television writers through her company Your Best Writing Now.


    She also built a successful voiceover career, voicing strong, powerful women in film and television from “Streetfighter” to “Xena Warrior Princess.” Through her life experience, she discovered her own inner warrior and found that the strong heroines she’d been voicing were also within her. 


    Soon after this discovery, friends, sisters and mothers began to approach her, asking how they could do it too. She listened to other women’s stories of breakup and heartache. That’s when she knew she had to write this book, to help others who were trudging through dark emotional waters, not knowing how to find the shore.

    The Summer of Queen + Adam - Part 3

    in Culture

    While DJ Nika is having her Australian adventures, Juneau and Xena are hosting this week to continue our discussion, analysis and reminiscences of the Queen + Adam Lambert North American tour. Last week's show devolved into an extended dissection of "Love Kills" vs "Who Wants to Live Forever" along with a full-out dissertation on "Somebody to Love," so this week we will try to get back on with the "middle section." A surprising number of critics thought this section of the show was slow, tedious, etc. We disagree, ardently. Joining us is music maven "Ellen Kat." What did you think of Brian and Roger's solos? The Drum battle? Brian's epic guitar solo? Thumbs up or down? Explain in comments or call in to (917) 932-1825 to share the love!


    Weekly talk and music radio inspired by our unlikely muse, Adam Lambert. Dedicated to creativity, entrepreurship, personal liberation. LGBTQ causes, people re-inventing their lives, and music, always music!

    Michael Orland Interview (Originally aired 6/6/12)

    in Music

    MICHAEL ORLAND is currently the Pianist, Arranger and Associate Musical Director for the hit FOX-TV series AMERICAN IDOL.  We “discovered” Michael behind the scenes when Adam thanked him after his striking and memorable performance of “If I Can’t Have You” on the Top 7 episode. Today he is in New York City working with Adam, who is serving as guest judge for the most recent crop of hopeful contestants.


    To mark the occasion, we are re-airing one of our interviews with Michael. We’ll ask Michael how it felt to be publicly thanked by Adam. What other highlights from all his years at Idol does Michael celebrate?


    But there’s a lot more to this multi-talented musician than working with Idol contestants.  He’s collaborated with many legends and soon-to-be legends in the entertainment industry.
