    Hey, Michael. I just listened to your podcast and thought it was a lot of fun and entertaining.Having Dominick on was a surprise, but he seemed very comfortable with you and Caroline.I hope you have him on again. I do watch him on GH and his character of Dante is developing more interesting every day. It will be really great to see what happens with his newly found father, Sonny. Fireworks!! To be continued..

  8. Tracy B says:

    Great podcast! I loved the chemistry between you Carolyn & Dominic. I think you make a great set!!! Make Dom a regular- please!


  9. Knox says:

    Michael fantastic podcast. Carolyn should be a regular co-host she is a natural at this. Dom did a fantastic job as well, the banter was fabulous! Well done! I loved the interview w/Sharon Case, what a gracious and kind woman, she never disappoints with her charm. Thank you for that and I hope in the future you have Case and Muhney both on to either co-host or for a joint interview!


  10. Kelly H. says:

    Anytime Florencia Lozano speaks, I will listen! She’s both witty and insightful when it comes to discussing her character, Tea Delgado. Florencia and Trevor are amazing and so natural together! I would love to see them featured in an interview together!!! Thank you so much for this awesome podcast!


    Deb replied

    I just had to poke my head in and say that I couldn’t agree with you more! Whether it is her super intelligent, classy, intuitive insight into her character of Téa Delgado and who she is at her core, or her own reflections about that (incredible) self beyond and outside of the character, no interview with Florencia Lozano could ever be long enough for me! She’s absolutely captivating and Michael Fairman, you have been responsible for two of my most favorite interviews with her at this point—this one via podcast, and the video interview that you conducted with her in NY.

    I love how deeply she knows this character, how she reveals the character’s soul and her own with so much grace, class, intelligence, and humor. Call me greedy, but there could never be enough interviews with her (or praise heaped on her) for me, especially not in the midst of this emotional powerhouse of a story and her stellar performances—so when can I expect the next one, Mr. Fairman? *rubs my hands together and starts tapping the desk*

    And yes, as a Todd and Téa fan, I’m still waiting for Trevor to face the same music that Florencia had to in the video interview’s “What would Trevor say about you?” I’m throwing down the gauntlet and issuing the challenge—go get him, Michael! Please? :)


    melissa replied

    Can I just co-sign this girl? This is exactly how I feel. No one can captivate me like Florencia can. She is so smart,intelligent, insightful and has a great understanding of her character and the way she should play a story. She is just awesomely talented and incredibly gifted. She is the most fascinating person ever and I could listen to her speak forever. Michael, how incredible that you have interviewed Florencia so much. I am so glad that you take the time to do that and give her fans the chance to be amazed and fascinated by her words. Next up, Trevor. We need to hear from him on all things Todd and Tea and most definitely need his response to the question what would he say about Florencia and what does he think she would say about him. Keep up the great work Michael.

  11. gloria butler says:

    Florencia totally rocks all of her interviews. I was at work when I heard she was going to be on. I immediately stopped what I was doing to listen to the show. She’s so much fun to listen to, always entertaining. Love the rapport she has with Trevor. I love Floerncia.


    yaely replied

    florencia rocks


  12. Pilar says:

    Hi Michael, great interview. I really enjoyed how you evoked Carolyn and Dominic’s irreverent sense of humor! Best part was your flirtation with Florencia, great job getting her to spill how her Tea doesn’t go too far & wish Todd move onto a new LOVE! That was very much in character and fun exchange. It’s so great to hear her insights & how comfortable she is talking with you really evident. Next up PLEASE get Trevor on the show.


  13. Heidi says:

    Another fabulous podcast Michael! Thank you so much for these… they really are fun! Dom was great and as usual Carolyn was a delight! I especially loved the Florenzia interview as Tea and Todd are so great! Please don’t skip any more for awhile! Can’t wait to see more from the GH FCW! Thanks again Michael you are awesome!!!


  14. Mia Lennox says:

    Wow I loved it!! You should keep these two as your co-stars Michael. I find Dominic and Carolyn are very funny and witty. These two great!! Love Florencia always a joy to hear her as well as Sharon, Have these two (DZ&CH) back please Michael :)


  15. Charles says:

    First time listening to the podcast, really enjoyed it. Carolyn and Dominic were great as co-hosts. The Florenzio interview — loved it! More of OLTL interviews and guests would be great. I would love to see Dorian, Robin Strasser, sit in as a guest co-hosts. Good job guys!


  16. Dana says:

    Gosh, I am so out of the loop. I had no idea Carolyn Hennessey was a co-host on here. Michael, Carolyn and Dominic have a great chemistry. I’ll be sure to tune in more to this program.

    What caused me to check in was word that Florencia Lozano, who is not only my favorite soap actress but the one who portrays my favorite soap character of all time, would be featured. I try not to miss anything featuring her, as she is simply amazing. I’ve been running around buying up every soap mag that has an interview of any kind with Flor but I must say, this interview is by far the best. The questions are pointed and insightful. You can tell that Michael is as passionate and engaged in this story as we, the fans are.

    And this part…

    Carolyn: Does she want Todd to love again?

    Flor: Uh…I wouldn’t go that far”

    LMAO. Short and to the point! I feel the same exact way. Let’s not get carried away now, lol. I am very glad the show isn’t going with that really cliche’ angle of Tea going out of her way to embrace Todd being with someone else. She wants him to be happy, period. So whatever that entails is fine but no need to stress that whole loving someone else point. Flor definitely gets it! Very refreshing.

    Really great question about who Tea is based on considering RC is an attorney. Could be wrong but despite Labine (one of my favorite OLTL writers evah) creating Tea, I could have sworn RC was a writer on staff at that time. Regardless, it was a very good question, Michael. I had no idea that Flor’s sister was an attorney and who Flor, herself, based her portrayal of the character. That is a fascinating piece of info and explains so much regarding how authentic Tea comes off, especially in the courtroom.

    I have been arguing that Tea and Alexis (my second fave character on ABCD) should do a What If due to their both being kick azz attorneys but didn’t even think about Diane. Tea and Diane may just be even more amusing cuz both Tea and Diane are a trip and a half. Hey, maybe we can get all three ladies going at it. Wouldn’t that be fun!

    Anyway, thank you so much for doing this interview. I am loving the Tea, Todd, Dani s/l and agree with Carolyn, it is already one of the best summer soap stories. All I can say is they better not kill my Tea. OLTL will be one livid long-time viewer on their hands if they do that to me.


  17. Bridget says:

    Loved, loved, loved the podcast with Caroline, Dom and Micheal! PLEASE have Dom back more often and I also want to add, Caroline is my girl!! She’s fantastic!


  18. Marcia says:

    Loved the Podcast, especially with your interview of Florencia Lozano! Love to hear her thoughts on one of my all time favorite characters, Tea Delgado, and my all time favorite couple TnT. Really enjoyed the humorous banter between all of you. Definitely would love to get a chance to hear you interview Trevor as well. :)


  19. Heather says:

    LOVE It!! Dominic Zamprogna is the best! Caroly is funny sorry to hear she walked out. You should have him more often Michael, better yet make him PERMANENT co-host!!! Sharon so sweet love her! Florencia was fantastic, and love her laugh. Please Michael have Dominic back please!!! :D


  20. Steph says:

    Florencia was awesome, I love Tea. Sharon was so sweet! Please Michael you have to promise us your going to bring Dominic Zamprogna back, please!!! CH was funny I like her character Diane always makes me laugh. But I absolutely, hands down, LOVE DZ!!!


  21. Susan says:
