NEWSTALK 1010: IAN URBINA OF THE OUTLAW OCEAN + SCOTT GOODSON

On this episode of the Richard Crouse Podcast we meet Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ian Urbina, host of “The Outlaw Ocean.” The project began years ago as a series in The New York Times, where he was a staff writer. Between the articles, a book on the subject and now the podcast, the journey took more than four years, spanning 40 cities and every continent, and over 12,000 nautical miles across five oceans and 20 other seas.

In the podcast Urbina explores a gritty and lawless realm, populated by traffickers and smugglers, pirates and mercenaries, wreck thieves and repo men, vigilante conservationists, seabound abortion providers, clandestine oil dumpers, shackled slaves and cast-adrift stowaways. “The Outlaw Ocean” is brought to you by CBC Podcasts and the L.A. Times.

Learn more about The Outlaw Ocean Project, a non-profit journalism organization that produces investigative stories about human rights, at theoutlawocean.com.

Then, we’ll meet Scott Goodson, the author of “Activate Brand Purpose: How To Harness The Power Of Movements To Transform Your Company” and founder and CEO of advertising and marketing agency StrawberryFrog. He Zooms in, from New York City, to talk about purpose driven companies and why consumers care about what a company stands for and what its values might be.

NEWSTALK 1010: THE ENTERTAINMENT COURT IS IN SESSION!

I join the host of NewsTalk 1010’s “The Rush” with Reshmi Nair, for a segment called “Entertainment Court.” Each week I serve as the judge, Reshmi as the juror, and we render a verdict on the week’s biggest pop culture stories.

This week we ask, Does the gift of an Oscar to President Zelinski draw attention to the war in Ukraine or simply draw attention to Sean Penn? Is it tone deaf of Vogue to sue Drake over a publicity stunt? Is Rainn Wilson’s name change a silly stunt, or an interesting way to bring attention to the cause of climate change?

AINSLIE HOGARTH + DAVID CRONENBERG + DANIEL RADCLIFFE + JOHN LANDIS

On this special Halloween edition of the Richard Crouse Show we meet Ainslie Hogarth, author of “Motherthing,” darkly comedic novel about a woman who must take drastic measures to save her husband and herself from the vengeful ghost of her mother-in-law.

Then, David Cronenberg stops by. The director of “Eastern Promises,” “A History of Violence,” “The Fly” and “Videodrome,” among many others, talks about “Crimes of the Future,” an all-star story of eroticized human evolution starring Kristen Stewart, Viggo Mortensen and Léa Seydoux and we’ll find out whether he likes the nickname for his fans!

We go to the vault to find an interview I did with Daniel Radcliffe the night after I hosted the Canadian premier of his first post Harry Potter movie, a brooding gothic horror film called “The Woman in Black.” In the film Daniel plays a recently widowed layer who is grieving the loss of his wife when he is sent to a remote village on business. Once there he discovers his client’s house is haunted by the spirit of a woman who is trying to find someone and something she lost, and that no one is safe from her terrible wrath.

We’re talking horror, and who better to talk to than John Landis.  As the director of An American Werewolf in London and the groundbreaking music video for Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” he knows a thing or two about how to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. In this conversation we talk about The Exorcist, The Omen, ghosts and one of th4e scariest scenes he’s ever seen in a movie. Ninety years ago Charles Laughton starred in The Island of Lost Souls as Dr. Moreau, a brilliant surgeon who performed vivisection on animals with the goal of turning animals into half human beings.

This week we ask, Have late night talk shows stayed too long at the party? If not, what would it take to get you to watch? Is Spotify right when they say it is not up to them to remove Kanye West’s music from their playlist? Is any publicity is good publicity?
