Does holding a mic affect what we say? Actor Erich Bergen from Madam Secretary analyzes this (and way more).

This week’s podcast guest plays Blake Moran on Madam Secretary, just finished a Broadway run of Waitress and sings for us (right here on the show!).

Listen now HERE.



I’ll interview you.

(Or someone in your family.)

For a limited time, you can give the gift of a Really Famous-style interview.

I’ll interview anyone you like — your grandma, your dad, your sister, your co-worker, cousin, daughter, boss, you!

I’ll do my research, interview her/him/you and record it just like I do for all my Really Famous episodes.

Then I’ll give it to you so you can listen to it on your phone, computer, iPad, Alexa speaker, smart TV, you name it.

Give it as a gift. Or keep it as a family heirloom.

It’s fun. It’s fascinating. It’s forever.


This is a fun one!
