Episodes of The Actor's Diet

Hey guys! I thought instead of clogging your feeds with Kickstarter updates about my movie, it might be nice to introduce you to the talent behind I Will Make You Mine. So I've taken The Actor's Diet Podcast out of retirement for episode 101 wi
In 2012, my book club actually read books. And one of my favorite books that we read was Cheryl Strayed's Wild (it was also one of my favorite book club meetings because we had a trail mix bar). At the time, I was dealing with the aftermath of
I have been following the @nobread Instagram account for a while, but it wasn't until recently that I began using the website as a resource for researching gluten-free restaurants. Nicole Cogan is the founder, and my 98th podcast guest! We disc
Bruce Kalman and I are bonded for life - he is the only person I've met outside of high school from the same part of NJ as me. So of course when I found out my fellow Jersey boy is going to be competing on the next season of Top Chef, I had to
I've known health and fitness expert Rob Dionne (and his wife Devon) for a long time - we met via past podcast guests Jeff Meacham and Christy Meyers back in NYC. I knew him back when he was still acting, so we talk about how he shifted away fr
All of August I got to hang out with the lovely Ciara Renée (DC Legends of Tomorrow, Broadway's Big Fish) while filming a movie in NYC. In fact, we recorded this podcast waiting on set before 2nd meal. We talk fermented meat sticks, sour candy,
I've been reading Jacey Duprie's blog Damsel in Dior for a while, and recently became a fan of her new podcast. This is our first conversation. Yay! We discuss growing up in Texas, eating raw turnips, her addiction to Cinnamon Altoids, gardenin
Serena Wolf is the woman behind the site Domesticate Me and The Dude Diet cookbook. And she's a podcast listener! In this episode we discuss the story behind The Dude Diet (and if it works), what culinary school in France at Le Cordon Bleu is l
Milana and I met in acting class and I'm thrilled to have her as my latest podcast guest. We discuss Russian food, eating donuts for dinner, her gymnast diet, becoming a vegetarian, food on set, body image, and engaging trolls. Theme music is b
This podcast has been a long time in the making - I've done countless blogs, videos, and social media posts with Nguyen, but this is the first time I had a chance to really spend a good chunk of time (an hour!) talking to him. In this episode,
Susan Orlean is a writer, and an incredible one at that. Abe and I were both big fans of her work before we met (via Twitter) and now we are friends. She also co-hosts her own podcast, Crybabies (with Sarah Thyre) so it was a no-brainer to have
Phoebe Lapine and I both started blogging around the same time, so she's been on my radar for years.  We finally met in person last November while she was in Los Angeles, and immediately bonded.  In this episode we talk about her newest book, T
In the early 90's, Broadway was very important to me.  Thus, Daisy Eagan was a huge deal.  She is the youngest actress to win a Tony Award for The Secret Garden, and I was really excited to see her in HBO'S GIRLS recently, playing the film vers
Anjali Shah (The Picky Eater) and I both started our blogs around the same time, so I was really excited to talk to her.  We discuss how she got her start, how she keeps going, essential Indian spices, and the oatmeal craze of early food blogs.
I first saw Daphne Brogdon on The Food Network and was thrilled to discover she was a fellow Angeleno.  Not only that, she is married to Mark Peel, whose restaurant Campanile was one of the first blog-worthy places I went to in Los Angeles (bef
I can't believe it has taken this long to get Goh on this podcast!  If you've been listening for a while, he wrote and performed the theme music at the beginning/end of the episodes.  And if you've followed the blog since 2010 you will remember
Jessica Murnane is a perfect example of why I still love the internet.  We've never actually met but have collaborated virtually several times.  I've been a guest on her podcast; she's shared her favorite things to binge watch/mindfully munch w
Lisa Q. Fetterman is the co-founder of Nomiku, the world's first wifi sous vide machine.  If that sounds familiar, you may have heard about it when she appeared on Shark Tank.  We talk all about what it's like to have husbands named Abe, and de
I’ve been friends with actor Leonardo Nam for a really long time.  Some of you may remember when we worked together on the second season of Nice Girls Crew but I think a lot more of you will recognized him as “Felix Lutz” on HBO’s Westworld – w
Design Sponge is one of those sites I look to - not only for inspiration in my daily life, but also as a blogger.  Grace Bonney, the founder, always seems to get it right.  She seems to possess an effortless access to parts of her brain that I
YAY MOLLY YEH!  The amazing blogger behind the award-winning site My Name is Yeh is my latest podcast guest and I couldn't be happier to talk to her.  In this episode, we talk about being a female percussionist at Juilliard, life on the farm, b
I first met Katie Dalebout via our fellow podcast buddy Jessica Murnane.  We went to Sqirl and ate cozy foods and bonded.  She is now one of my favorite virtual friends.  In this episode, Katie and I discuss growing up in a controlling househol
Fohr Card is a directory that connects brands and agencies with bloggers and content creators.  I use it whenever someone wants to see my social media/blog stats - sort of like the sizing chart I fill out when I go in for commercial auditions.
Remember that epic birthday brunch for Uncle Robert that my cousin Kristine Kidd recently made?  I saw Ethan Peck there (his dad is Kristine's husband, Steve) and asked him to be a guest on the podcast.   We talk about what his work out routine
I've had Jasmin Singer on the blog before - we've eaten a few times together (I've got to get back to Stuff I Eat!) and caught up at the BlogHer Conference recently.  Jasmin and I met 16 years ago, via the NiteStar Theater Company  (also how I
