Once again Joan River is in danger of being kicked out of the Writers Guild.
Under Deal Made With Guild in 2013 Rivers Promised to Stop Writing During Strike, But Rivers Continues To Write Violating Union Rules
Joan Rivers could face expulsion from the Writers Guild of America for failure to stop writing on a television show that writers are currently striking. That show, according to a union official, is E’s “Fashion Police” hosted by Rivers. Before going on strike Rivers’ writers were earning $610.00 a week with no health insurance. Their strike against E’s “Fashion Police” continues while Rivers violates union rules by writing on the show.
Rivers’ troubles with the union started back in October of 2013 after the Writers Guild scheduled a disciplinary hearing to determine if Rivers should be expelled for scabbing. Right before that hearing was to take place an embarrassed Rivers assured the Guild that she would stop writing and support her writers in their efforts to join the very same union she has been a member of for decades. Now once again she could get kicked out of it.

All parents have trouble making their children eat their fruits and veggies. Well we have the solution. Play this five minute interview and your kids will finish everything on their plates. Matt Rice is our guest. Originally heard on the David Feldman Show.
Tonight, Jerry Stahl talks Prison, Reform & Redemption with Hollywood exec Scott Budnick – who left his a career as successful producer (The Hangover Trilogy) to focus on his project, ARC– the Anti-Recidivism Coalition – and work on behalf of California inmates. Scott talks about sitting down with Obama to talk convict rights, and visiting Tehachapee penitentiary in Bakersfield with Zach Galfanakis.,.. Our second guest is radical rock icon Wayne Kramer. We’ll hear Wayne’s incredible life story – how he went from rock’n’roll stardom as guitarist for the MC5. to serving time in the federal penitentiary at Lexington, to working with Johnny Thunders and other giants at the height of punkdom. After successfully kicking heroin, Wayne continues to play and produce, as well as bringing music to prisons with his organization Jail Guitar Doors. (The title taken from the Clash song written in Wayne’s honor.) Since its inception in 2009, Jail Guitar Doors has provided guitars and music lessons for inmates at more than 50 penal institutions throughout the United States. Kramer’s new album Lexington, began as score for the PBS documentary, Narcotic Farm – about the very penitentiary in which he languished – and has since soared to the top of the jazz charts.

“A podcast for folks who believe that strong political convictions and a sense of humor do not have to be mutually exclusive.” – Nathan Rabin, The AV Club
“The inherent danger of listening in public is that you need to figure out in advance what you’re going to say when someone asks, ‘What are you laughing at?’” – Marc Hershon, Huffington Post
