During this weekly visit from the World News Center, Bill McCormick and I discussed how weed will not cure COVID-19 (and neither will edibles and CBD), why using modern leeches is not a good idea, and why having Karen the hairstylist pull teeth is not a wise decision. Plus: an important message about COVID-19 and small children. Wash your hands, wear a mask, and practice social distancing.
It was nice to welcome Clive Standen back to the show for a chat about his new show “Council of Dads.” Will there be new additions to the circle? Will Tom Everett Scott return to the show as a ghost? Listen for the spoiler-free details!
Debi Mazar called it to talk about her new series, “Arde Madrid: Burn Madrid Burn,” which is streaming on the Megahertz choice service. Debi plays Ava Gardner in 1960. We also discussed meeting Frank Sinatra with Madonna, her battle with COVID-19, and the future of her series “Younger.”
It was nice to catch up with Don McLean, who called in to promote the release of all of his songs on streaming platforms and a special Time Life collection. We also discussed his “lazy” songwriting process and the merits of Steve Allen’s 5,000 compositions.
