Did you miss the December 1 Dinner Party? Watch below! Tickets go on sale for the January 12th Dinner Party on Thursday, December 4 HERE.

Pull up a chair and some munchies and join William H. Macy, Chef Heather Terhune of Sable in Chicago and me, your host of The Dinner Party, Elysabeth Alfano. We discuss the new, season 5 of Shameless, Macy’s return to Chicago, his new efforts in directing and the creative process in and out of the kitchen.

Actor John Mahoney (“Say Anything,” “Frasier,” Steppenwolf) talks to me about his craft and career on my most recent podcast. John will be hosting the 125th Gala Celebration of the Auditorium Theatre on December 9.

Listen to my off-the-cuff interview with Macy Gray. We talk funky spaghetti, her life as an artist and accepting her distinctive voice.

In the interim, enjoy my interview with Smashing Pumpkins Frontman, Billy Corgan. In a candid and warm conversation, we discuss the decline of Rock ‘n’ Roll, what it takes for an artist to get their work out in public, counter culture’s perception of him and, of course, wrestling.
