Kristin Herold is currently the co-host of a radio show on 790 KABC "So What's Your Problem?" and a glamorous red carpet host. But before all of this, she was an actress in one of Terence's early Lions Gate films. The two became fast friends. But after discovering acting wasn't grounded enough for her, Kristin packed up and shipped off to Idaho to become a Fox station news reporter. Her coworkers found out she once modeled for Playboy (Girls of the Big 10 at Ohio State issue) and her work environment spiraled out of control (she was also in People Magazine's Fresh Faces issue). So she packed up and came back to L.A. where she's now attempting to reinvent herself in a completely different industry (or is it?). Some people say Kristin simply lives in a world of unicorns, rainbows and fairy tales. What do you think? Eventually, the conversation takes a more serious tone as the two talk about meaning, time management, and ultradian cycles. ***** PLEASE ENGAGE AND SUBSCRIBE Follow and like us on Facebook or Instagram On (desktop or phone)  iTunes  or iHeart Radio or GooglePlayMusic You can also contact us or learn more at terencemichael.com Terence Michael's book "PRODUCE YOURSELF: Apply Hollywood's Proven Formula To Become The Hero Of Your Life" is available everywhere.

Graham Bradstreet needs no introduction in Hollywood, especially among the studios, agencies, and major production companies who all come to him for film financing. After co-founding Working Title Films (this year's "Baby Driver" and "Darkest Hour) with his partners and selling it to Polygram back in the 90s, Graham formed several other companies and financing vehicles to supply movie budgets in excess of $3 Billion to the major studios like Paramount and Sony. He developed the concept of insurance backed securities, popularized the practice of tax breaks and tax credits, and dug into international legislature and tax codes to figure out how to get huge slates of movies made. Recently Terence and Graham have formed a new film production company to produce 30 movies over a 4-year period. They can't say too much just, but Graham was kind enough to join the podcast to give you a taste of what they're doing. ***** PLEASE ENGAGE AND SUBSCRIBE Follow and like us on Facebook or Instagram On (desktop or phone)  iTunes  or iHeart Radio or GooglePlayMusic You can also contact us or learn more at terencemichael.com Terence Michael's book "PRODUCE YOURSELF: Apply Hollywood's Proven Formula To Become The Hero Of Your Life" is available everywhere.

"The Big Sick" is an awesome indie movie, which sold for big bucks at Sundance. It works because it follows The Hero’s Journey and those important three “E”s that every movie needs to have. The movie is a fresh and funny take on boy meets girl. It’s also the true story of how Kumail Nanjiani (“Silicon Valley”) met his real-life wife, Emily Gordon (writer with Kumail and producer of the movie). Also stars Zoe Kazan, Holly Hunter, and Ray Romano.  Kumail and his wife literally produced themselves to show Hollywood what they can do. A huge success and immortalized now with an Oscar nomination for Best Screenplay.

Dave Fleming was a hotshot Emmy-winning news producer in L.A. for many years. He grew up in Beverly Hills where he went to High School. A little actor named Warren Beatty modeled his character in the iconic "Shampoo" movie after Dave's dad. So yeah, he's a Beverly Hills brat! Actually, he's a really bright producer who knows how to network and make things happen. And not long ago, he began a new, cool side-hustle called TheMilesGuy.com, which has turned into a successful business.   Dave used to use Terence for sound bites and as an "actor" in his news pieces and they became fast friends.  After learning more about Dave's business, the guys talk time management, process, scaling-up, and the dangers of multi-tasking. ***** Please "Follow" and "Like" us on Facebook Listen to us at the following places and PLEASE SUBSCRIBE!

TV/Film writer/director/producer/showrunner Michael Addis is perhaps the most energetic guy Terence Michael has ever met. And because the two haven't caught up in so long, this podcast is unfortunately a chaotic and wild tangential ride down memory lane and every rabbit hold to every weed possible. But if you enjoy movies, television, and seeking peak performance, you'll get snippets of everything as the guys traverse from one topic to the next without ever fully finishing anything.  Some of the topics include: - Actress Jaime Pressly was in both of the guys' movies. They also both worked with Tom Green. - They guys went to numerous Sundance festivals together. - The #MeToo movement. How can we not? - The mastery of networking - Name dropping with Eddie Vedder, Jewel, Liev Schrieber, Kate Hudson, etc. - TruTV's Impractical Jokers - The movie "Heckler" starring Jamie Kennedy  - When to be a puppet master for your talent, when to let them go - Self-awareness and when talent is distracted by knowledge of the cameras - Sidney Pollack and acting. the best acting is not acting - The problem with yelling “action” on set - Why winning is anti-climatic in competition shows - Can Christian Bale do comey? - Being a peak performance and efficiency nut. - Morning and evening routines, meditation, distraction, scientology - The science of yawning  And that's all just the first 5 minutes. ***** Please "Follow" and "Like" us on Facebook Listen to us at the following places and PLEASE SUBSCRIBE!
