Another good one, Michael. What a coupe to get Rick Springfield! He sounds like he is handling his depresion, and should be inspiring to the many others out there who have the same condition. He is still quite a guy. I just bet those cruises are plenty wild….but fun. Carolyn was in rare form, as usual. Also thought that Eric wa a welcome addition to the show. Your topics, especially about bullying and the heartbreaking results of so many young people was good to bring out to your fans. Everyone should be wiser and kinder in all situations in life.… Read more »

I am so amazed at the Rick Springfield conversation. I’m glad he’s on a promotional; tour I loved Dr. Noah But I really think you and he did a great service by talking about his depresssion and suicide attempt. You really helped open the door for people not to be ashamed and people we think have it all also suffer. Kudos to you and especially Rick.
Can’t wait to read his memoirs would love to hear him sing too

Hey, Michael. I forgot to mention in my first comment, that I loved Ktisten Alderson. She is so engaging in your interview. I really hope that she doesn’t end up with James. But, she seemed to indicate something horrible wil be be happening this week. My mind is going crazy thinking of so many things that can go wrong in her rescue. Anyway, she is a very competant actress for such a young age. We’ve all known her a long time. Also , Daniel Goddard’s story seems to be unraveling. I can’t quite figure out what it is exactly. But,… Read more »
