2017 Oscar Predictions

Alan Cerny (@NordlingCS on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss their 2017 Oscar Predictions.  It’s Season 7! It wouldn’t be Reality Check if the season didn’t start with the Oscars.  Craig and Alan predict their choices for the 2017 Academy Awards, why the Oscars seemed to come down to about 7 movies, why someone should have or shouldn’t have been nominated as well as who they think WILL win and who they think SHOULD win. Craig rails against La-La-Land, especially Ryan Gosling, Alan talk about the importance of a movie like Moonlight, they argue if Elle was a mansplaining movie and they both plug their new spin-off podcast, Matinee Heroes.

Each February, past guest and friend of the show, Thom Singer has his annual fundraiser for the Kate Singer Endowment for Cranio-Facial Research. It’s a good cause and the money goes to the Dell Children’s Medical Center out of Austin and Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego. Please consider donating by clicking here to donate.

2016 Speakers Roundtable

Mary Kelly, Jason Kotecki, Jessica Pettitt and Thom Singer (@marykellyspeaks, @escapeadulthood, @jesspettitt and @thomsinger on Twitter) join host Craig Price for his 2016 Speakers Roundtable. Each year, Craig gathers the best minds in the speaking industry to sit down during the National Speakers Association’s annual convention (this year in hell…I mean Phoenix.) to discuss the state of the industry, what new things are happening, what issues are affecting the speaker population and whatever else may pop up. This year, Craig sat 4 talented past guests to discuss marketing and the resulting conversation covered so much more. They discussed capitalism, charity, tapping into your talents, differentiating yourself, referring other speakers and the hottest of topics…when during the podcast would Jessica swear. These panels are always the most requested episodes of Reality Check and this year is no exception.  Celebrate Craig’s birthday by enjoying a gift he gives to himself and to you…his annual speakers roundtable.

Episode 187 – 2016 Oscar Predictions / audio

2016 Oscar Predictions

Alan Cerny (@NordlingCS on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss their 2016 Oscar Predictions. Season 6 starts off like it has the last 5 years, with Craig and Alan predicting their choices for the 2016 Academy Awards, lamenting non-nominees, why someone should have or shouldn’t have been nominated as well as who they think WILL win and who they think SHOULD win. It looks like a rather boring year at the Academy in which Craig rants against Rachel McAdams, both Alan and Craig take issue with Leonardo Dicaprio’s snot-bubbled grunting and their mutual love of Mad Max: Fury Road.

Also, past guest and friend of the show, Thom Singer is in the middle of his annual fundraiser (all February) for the Kate Singer Endowment for Cranio-Facial Research. It’s a good cause and the money goes to the Dell Children’s Medical Center out of Austin and Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego. Please consider donating by clicking here to donate.

Episode 164 – Thom Singer – Emceeing / audio

emceeing

Thom Singer (@ThomSinger on Twitter) returns to give host Craig Price some tips on being an emcee. Being an emcee or host for a corporate event is nothing like being an emcee at a comedy club. To help with Craig’s upcoming hosting duties at Comicpalooza, he decided to look for a professional. Past guest and speaker pal, Thom is widely known as the “Conference Catalyst” and professional emceeing is right in his wheelhouse. The two discuss, what the goals of the emcee is at an event, how to keep things moving along, how to deal with a speaker who goes long. They also discuss another major aspect of emceeing and is far more common, hosting a panel. How do you prepare, how much do you prepare, how do you get quiet guests involved and most importantly, how do you control the one panelist that tries to dominate the time.
