  • Father's Day on Brett Singer Radio

    17/06/2011 Duración: 31min

    Sunday is Father's Day. Today I'm going to talk about how to show your kids to stand up for themselves without letting them think that it's OK to yell at people. I tend to be a pain in the ass when it comes to customer service people, not because I like arguing, because I can't stand getting jerked around. Speaking of being jerked around, I'll share with you my personal collection of Anthony Weiner jokes (bandwagon, anyone?), and also tell you why I hate politics. Getting back to Father's Day, our friend Christine Coppa interviewed Adrian Grenier from Entourage about his new movie A Shot In The Dark, which is about him looking for his dad. Hits home for her, and me too. Also: what is the right age to let your kids watch videos on YouTube? After that, who knows? I like talking. Call in, jump in the chat room, just don't tweet me a picture of your junk. I'm not interested.

    Did you know that the US Government helped Domino's figure out how to get more cheese into their pizzas, while at the same time telling people to eat less fatty foods -- like, oh, I don't know... CHEESE?!? Big story in the New York Times, and we're talking about it. Also: why the Tea Party isn't really a party, why Arnold Schwarzenegger probably wasn't such a bad governor despite what people say, and anything else we have time for. Call in!

  • Everybody Wants To Be Cool

    06/08/2010 Duración: 31min

    Everybody wants to be cool. When did this start? James Dean? Earlier? Were there cavemen who tried to impress cavewomen with their designer woolly mammoth jackets? Today I'll talk about how everyone wants to be cool, including WikiLeaker Julian Assange and alleged blood diamond accepter Naomi Campbell, who testified at the Hague this week. Campbell succeeded in barring the media from taping her testimony, so I'll read some of her words, and imagine what else she might have said. (By that I mean I'll make stuff up in a funny accent.) Also: Brands are not people, despite what marketing nitwits say. And much more! Tune in.

  • Real Life Superheroes - No, Really

    16/07/2010 Duración: 31min

    There are real life superheroes among us. No. Really. There are. They have an acronym - RLSH. They have web sites. I'm fascinated by these people, and you will be too. Also: Many stories have been told this week about George Steinbrenner, but one that I haven't seen mentioned is the saga of Steve Swindal, the moron who divorced the beautiful and beguiling Jennifer Steinbrenner, daughter of George. We'll remember Steve on the show today. Also on the docket: another stupid poll proves absolutely nothing, and some of my favorite comments found online. PLUS: the infamous Mel Gibson tapes are fake, and we have proof! Listen and be amazed.

  • MIA Sarah Palin and Journalism

    11/06/2010 Duración: 45min

    This week I'm joined by Jeanne Sager. We're going to talk about journalism - Joe McGuinness, the guy who moved in next to Sarah Palin and is writing a book about the former Alaska governor, and M.I.A., who got so mad about an article about her in the New York Times magazine that she tweeted writer Lynn Hirschberg's phone number. The Times then admitted that some of the quotes may have been taken out of context, and it turns out that the infamous truffle fries were ordered by Lynn Hirschberg and NOT by M.I.A. That's right people -- truffle fries. It's come to this. Also: Helen Thomas hates the Jews, but doesn't everybody? And more! Tune in.

    04/06/2010 Duración: 30min

    Let's see if we can get through a show without mentioning Star Trek. Probably not. Maybe I'll do an over/under on how many minutes until somebody starts talking Trek. Not sure if I would take that bet, frankly. Gary Coleman, Rod Blagojevich, James Cameron and Kevin Costner - none of them will be my guests, but I'll talk about them all. Remember the episode of Diff'rent Strokes where Arnold wanted to have a Bar Mitzvah, but Milton Berle told him how tough it was to be a Jew? No? I do. Tune in tomorrow to see what the hell I'm talking about.

    Today's topic is food. And also, the Apple Tablet launch, because really, what else is happening in the world? On the agenda: farm shares, aka CSAs, which I recently discovered. The food is great, but some of the people... We'll also talk about getting your kids to eat better, and eating better yourself. We'll also discuss the crisis in Haiti and what it has to do with breast-feeding (really) if time permits. At 1pm, we will follow the launch of the mythical Apple Tablet LIVE, as it happens.
