I enjoyed the podcast especially the talk about New Orleans. I just moved down there in February and I love it. It would be great if Carolyn and any of of the other soap actors decided to have a fan or benefit event down here. I would definitely come!

A FANTASTIC podcast. I am so proud to be a LuRe fan and so proud that we hit our $15,000 goal for Dr.’s without Borders. It was great to hear from both Terri and Melissa. Can’t wait till the next one. Thanks Michael, Carolyn and Christian.

What a fun packed podcast, Michael. It was loaded with great features and great guests. Loved Christian as a guest host. It was very interesting to hear about his early days on TV soaps. It wa also meaninful when he talke about his father and late brother. I’m a big fan of Christian and respect his talent so much. Terry Columbino was fun to have on, especially her views on the ending of ATWT. The last few episodes she has been on with the transplant and all, she has given a solid performance. So, kudos to her. Melissa returning to Days is wonderful. I only wish Matthew Ashford was coming, too. The trivia test Dillon gave you three was fun. I think even I knew some of the Dallas answers. Carolyn is so glib and so knowledgeable and creative in her own right. So, I think you have a great group of stars on, Michael. I would love to see Christian come back for another hosting gig. Will look forward to your next podcast,…..

Fun podcast. C-hosts were funny! Carolyn wants her character hooked up with Brenda- LOL!
Great to hear from Melissa Reeves. I remember her farewell scene with Frances Reid in 2006- very touching. I thought the same thing, they will never do a scene together again on Days.
Hoping they don’t kill Jack off and put Jennifer in a triangle.

EastSiders Season 3 Starring Van Hansis and Kit Williamson Kickstarter Campaign Underway!

EastSiders is on its way back for season three, which is great news since the LGBT series starring former As the World Turns star Van Hasis (Ex-Luke) as Thom and creator/writer/producer Kit Williamson as Cal.

Over the last few seasons, the funny, poignant, and extremely well-written series tells the tale of a couple who go through the struggles of their relationship while living in Silver Lake, California.

With many twist and turns and featuring a supporting cast that includes: Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat)Brianna Brown (General Hospital, Devious Maids, the upcoming Dynasty), Stephen Guarino (Happy Endings, I’m Dying Up Here), Willam Beli (RuPaul’s Drag Race, Nip/Tuck) Traci Lords (Crybaby, Zach and Miri Make a Porno), Matthew McKelligon (You’re Killing Me), Jonathan Lisecki (Gayby) and John Halbach (Producer, EastSiders), the series third season looks to be one of its most intriguing yet.

This time Thom and Cal (Hansis and Williamson) end up on the great American road trip after moving from L.A. to the Big Apple and then trying to get back home! The journey home to Silver Lake was shot on-location in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Nevada and  California over 35 days last fall.

The production has now launched their Kicktstarter campaign to finish up the series and is hoping for some funding for additional shoot days, and post-production costs. The campaign is set to run until June 6th, by which time the producers must have attained their goal of $60,000, or if you contribute and they have not met their goal, it is refunded. (more…)
