After 2 years and 18 episodes, we present you the final episode of the thirtysomething podcast. We have been so lucky to interview just about everyone. If they weren’t on the podcast, we got them for the book, thirtysomething at thirty: an oral history.
September 29th, 2017 thirtysomething turns thirty. We were so lucky to be able to celebrate our favorite television show and help bring it to its own age. For our final episode Scott reads a bit of his introduction from his new book about the show, Carolyn and Scott read brand new statements from some of the cast and crew about the show turning 30. We even have a new one from an actor who was never on the podcast or the book! Then we say goodbye to all our fans of the podcast.
Finally, thank you to everyone who supported the show, the book and all the thirtysomething fun. It was great to meet all of you. Enjoy our final episode.
Ever since we started the thirtysomething podcast, one guest has been requested the most, Ken Olin – Michael Steadman. Your wish is granted. Join Carolyn and Scott for a 90 minute interview with Ken Olin. We talk about the thirtieth year of thirtysomething as well as his directing on the new #1 hit show, This Is Us.
We ask him about a few episodes of thirtysomething and his thoughts on a reunion show. Ken also talks about what it was like to read my upcoming book, thirtysomething at thirty. We asked him different questions than I asked him for the book, so there is little cross over. If you want to hear Ken talk about working with Mel Harris, how he developed his character and the intense scenes in “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”, you will want to order thirtysomething at thirty.
Enjoy this laugh-filled conversation with the one and only, Ken Olin.
The Red Room Podcast was started in 2011 with Joshua Minton. Josh & Scott cover serious talk about television. Twin Peaks may be the bread and butter, but this podcast covers all the shows that create art for television. The podcast mixes in interviews, panels and lists of the best shows. Guests have included Dana Delany, Glenn Gordon Caron, Todd Holland, Sherilyn Fenn, Charlotte Stewart and more.
The thirtysomething Podcast interviews the actors, writers and producers of the 1987 series thirtysomething. Co-hosted with Carolyn Hendler, this podcast has also done commentaries on some of the episodes from Season 4 which never had commentaries recorded for the DVDS. Scott then turned these interviews along with many never broadcast, into a new book, thirtysomething at thirty.
Scott Luck Stories is a comic look at life in the day and age of internet, corporations and parenting. Scott tells stories with a comic slant. 34 stories are out there to entertain and make you think. Scott compiled some of these stories into an ebook in 2014.
Carolyn Hendler & Scott Ryan set out to interview all the cast and crew of the Edward Zwick & Marshall Herskovitz television series thirtysomething. We will post all the interviews to this page so it is a great page to book mark and see who we have interviewed. You can also go to iTunes and subscribe to get the episodes automatically on your phone. Also please help us spread the word so if you can share our Facebook page or this page that would be kind of you.
Scott has also written a book about thirtysomething here is the Promo for the new book.
This show was one of a kind and we are not going to let it slip into television history without comment. We are just beginning and won’t rest until all have had their say. So put Ethan and Brittany to bed, turn on the answering machine so Miles can’t call you and enjoy our walk down Bedford Falls Lane.
