Episode 189 - Brian Weaver


Brian Weaver is a street artist and co-founder of Artsemble Underground which was created to help local businesses attract traffic with murals, sculptures, or art events. He owns a gallery of the same name with fellow artist Cesar Aguilara

Artsemble Underground gallery is where the current “Battle of The Arts” is held, every second Saturday of the month. Brian and Cesar consider this event less of a battle and more of an opportunity for local artists to connect and network all while raising money for a different non-profit organization each month. At the end of the year all of the winners from each month will compete for the “SWFL’s World Cup of Art!”

Episode 187 - Doug Berman


Doug Berman is Executive Producer of Car Talk; and Creator and Benevolent Overlord of Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!

A two-time Peabody Award-winning producer, Doug began his career in news while still in college, serving as a production assistant for NPR's All Things Considered and Morning Edition. It was at WBUR that Doug met and became friends with Tom & Ray Magliozzi brothers, who were doing a local call-in show. He produced a pilot for them, and that became the first episode of Car Talk.

In the late 90s after Car Talk proved there was an audience for such silliness on NPR, Doug was asked to create another show to pair with Car Talk and so Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! was born. These days he’s Wait Wait’s “Benevolent Overlord.”
