DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

Dennis visits the Silver Lake home of Edward Boyd, one of the Executive Producers of E!'s The Soup, which is ending its run this Friday after 12 laugh-filled years.  Ed talks about the show's beginning and evolution, how his dog Lou came to be a regular on the show, his favorite clips and moments and how it feels to be saying goodbye. He also confesses to helping build buzz for the show early on by commenting on TV message boards anonymously, reveals which guests got it and which didn't and recalls the time he quit the show out of frustration...only to have the staff rally around him and bring him back. Other topics include: the step aerobics class where Dennis and Ed met, what it's like to grow up in Fairbanks, Alaska, the movie Ed's seen more than any other, the time he shoplifted a dirty magazine because its cover promised scratch n' sniff vagina...and much much more.
