Podcast Recommendation: KCRW’s “Martini Shot”

Martini Shot is hosted by Rob Long, a guy who seems to have a lot of Hollywood Insider knowledge for someone whose IMDB profile consists mainly of being involved with Cheers.

Each week, he provides a cleverly-titled 3-minute anecdote on how things really work in Hollyweird, from business lunches ending in fistfights to the networking upside of the writer’s strike to…well, you name it, really. Consider it a window into the life of one of the supporting cast, if real life were The Player.

It’s truly fascinating, and well worth spending part of your commute on (For the curious, Wikipedia explains that the “martini shot” is LA code for “the final shot of the day”.
