Martin talks to award-winning music writer Holly George-Warren about her new biography of Alex Chilton, A Man Called Destruction. A thoroughly researched account of the critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter's life and musical career, the book covers Chilton's time in the Box Tops, in Big Star, and eventually becoming an alternative and indie rock icon who influenced bands like Wilco, R. E. M., the Replacements and Yo La Tengo. George-Warren's book is also the story of the changes in Rock & Roll over the past forty years -- from the golden days of AM radio singles and Southern soul; to albums created as personal artistic statements; to the industry changes wrought by indie rock in the 80s, 90s and into the 21st century.

Kristen is the chef de cuisine at Menton Boston and is the second female winner in Top Chef history! Hear about her Michigan roots, her culinary journey, her Top Chef experience, and her chef career in Boston.

While in college, her mother suggested she go to culinary school. She graduated from Le Cordon Bleu in Chicago and has never looked back.

After culinary school, Kristen worked for numerous world-renowned chefs, including Michelin-star chef Guy Martin, and she currently works for James Beard Award Winner and Relais & Chateaux Grand Chef Barbara Lynch.

Comics and film share a lot of DNA, though their strengths and weaknesses greatly differ. In the end they’re trying to do the same thing–convey ideas and explore narratives visually. So what might cartoonists learn about their own craft by studying the approaches and workflow of fimmakers?

I’ll be joined by three independent filmmakers to discover how they find their narratives and ultimately express them in their visual mediums. Kohl Glass is the Emmy-award winning creator behind such films as Der Ostwind and Orc Wars. Donald Harrison is the former director of the Ann Arbor Film Festival and creator of films such as Limited Aesthetic. Sharad Patel is a one-man production studio and has written, acted, and directed his own films.

In this episode, Martin talks to New York Time culture reporter Dave Itzkoff about his new book Mad as Hell: The Making of Network and the Fateful Vision of the Angriest Man in Movies. "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it any more!" Those words, spoken by the unhinged television anchorman named Howared Beale, the 'mad prophet of the airwaves,' took America by storm in 1976, when Network because a sensation. With a superb cast (William Holden, Faye Dunaway, Peter Finch and Robert Duvall) directed by Sidney Lumet, the film won four Academy Awards and indelibly shaped how we think about corporate and media power.

Itzkoff's fascinating book recounts the incredible story of how Network made it to the screen, and gives us an in-depth view of the man responsible for the film, the uncompromising screenwriter Paddy Chayefsky.

Martin Bandyke Under Covers: Martin talks to author Robert Gordon about his new book Respect Yourself: Stax Records and the Soul Explosion. Not to be confused with the rockabilly singer-songwriter of the same name, Gordon has been writing about Memphis music and history for over three decades and is also the author of Can't Be Satisfied, King of the Road, and The Elvis Treasures. Respect Yourself tells the tale of the legendary Stax Records label in Memphis, where Otis Redding, Booker T. & the MG's, Isaac Hayes, Sam and Dave, the Staple Singers, Wilson Pickett and many others recorded their greatest songs. A history which unfolds like a Greek tragedy, Stax went from the highest highs in the music industry to a tragic demise. You may already know the story of Motown, but you also need to know the story of Stax!
