Super fun time with co-host Vi Vared 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.
Another great show on Columbus Day talking all things millennial with my good 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
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.
Thanks for listening, and have an awesome day! Peace – R

After a nine month sabbatical, my talk show, Tola Talks, is back on the radio!
Hot, current and definitely on the edge, we’ll be broadcasting live on Hamilton-Radio.com (Channel 2) every Tuesday starting January 5th, 2016 from 4-6pm (ET).
Since our last show in March, I’ve been busing doing Standup Comedy and hosting/producing talent showcases in Chicago…not to mention auditioning for film and TV roles and teaching tons of Yoga at Chicago Athletic Clubs. So get ready for an even funnier 2-hour rush-hour show filled with plenty of awesome interviews and my usual 21st Century talk for a no-bullshit world.
For discounted promotional spots with Hamilton Radio, give the owner Gene a shout and tell him Tola sent you. Click HERE for without a doubt some of the best advertising deals in radio!
