Tola Talks #MeToo, Melania Trump and The Power of One

Super fun time with co-host Vi talking #MeToo, Melania Trump and The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay. Not to mention Marilyn Monroe and If I Were President I would legalize everything.

 

Tola Talks is now available on Google Play and Stitcher where you can subscribe to our weekly show or download past episodes. And of course, listen live every Monday on LATalkRadio.

Have an awesome day everyone, and don’t forget about the best $5 deal in Los Angeles for the best yoga workout in the world…Tola Yoga every Wednesday at The Reef. Peace – R

Tola Talks all things Millennial with Writer Ben Smith

Another great show on Columbus Day talking all things millennial with my friend and Hollywood writer, Ben Smith.

Since moving to LA LA Land eight years ago, Ben has managed to survive by developing websites while pursing his passion as a screenwriter. He’s also become a much better writer and continues to hone his craft by taking show-runner classes at UCLA.

As a follow-up to last week’s “If I Were President”, I would raise the Federal Minimum Wage and require our unemployed receiving benefits to get their hands dirty, helping America achieve the cleanest streets in the world…no doubt!

In other news, Tola Talks Hollywood movies and gives a 5-star review to George Clooney’s The Ides of March, bestows the The Get Your Shit Together Award to a Judge in Michigan, plus “nudge” theory with this year’s winner of the Nobel Peace Prize in Economic Sciences.

Check it out below…and remember to get your workout in! Peace – R

 

 

Tola Talks with Actress/Producer Stephanie Drapeau

Kudos to re-launch of Tola Talks…we had a titillating show yesterday talking Hollywood film and TV roles with the lovely and talented, Stephanie Drapeau.

Plus, before I introduce Stephanie at 27:41 minutes, I kick-off the show with some Presidential advice on how to solve homelessness and get every United States resident off the streets. I also give out the Get Your Shit Together Award to none other than The Trump Administration.

We also observe a moment of silence for the victims and families of those who perished or were injured in Las Vegas in the worst mass shooting in our nation’s history, as well as for the way-too-early passing of one the great rock-and-roll legends of all time, Tom Petty.

Here’s the MP3, and tune-in next Monday at 4p PST for another great show!  Peace – R

Talking Tola Talks on LATalkRadio tomorrow 10am PST

Hey everyone, you can catch me on the radio tomorrow, Wednesday at 10am PST with ‘Sam in the Morning’ talking Tola Talks and anything else Sam and Rachel have in mind.

And if you haven’t seen the news on social media, after three years aways teaching Tola Yoga in Chicago and Seattle, I’m re-launching my talk show on LATalkRadio.com every Monday at 4p.

Tola Talks is a weekly show bringing you my “21st Century Talk for a No-Bullshit World”. No doubt there’s a lot of BS in the world, so I give it to you straight with seven different segments including: If I Were President, the Get Your Shit Together Award, Books-Movies-Music & More, World News, Rant & Raves (aka WTF), Fitness & Tola Yoga, and Celebrity Guest Interviews & Listener Calls.
