Hollywood & Levine looks at the world of entertainment, pop culture, screenwriting, and life, and takes none of it seriously. The point is to make you laugh, although useful information might accidentally slip through. Hosted by Emmy-winning writer/baseball announcer/talk show host, Ken Levine, Hollywood & Levine will feature commentary, war stories on Ken’s career (MASH, Cheers, Frasier, Simpsons), interviews, writing advice, movie reviews, snarky award show recaps, tall tales from his baseball and radio career, segments from old broadcasts, improv sketches, answering listener questions, and more. It’s a fun, fast-paced hour of humor, nonsense, and God knows what.

Hilarity & Laughter
A friend recommended I check out Ken Levine's new podcast, Hollywood & Levine. While the title alone was enough to get me hooked, Ken's unique perspective and personal stories about his extraordinary career as one of television's top writers ensure that I'll keep coming back for more each week. And he's funny as hell! Along with his partner, David Isaacs, Ken had me rolling on the floor laughing with their bit on special effects, which up to now, you could only hear if you were in the writers room of FRASIER. I can't wait for more great stuff from this Emmy-winning funnyman!
A Welcome Addition to His Blog
Mr. Levine mixes insight on Hollywood, screenwriting, nostalgia, and baseball. I've been reading his blog daily for years. Can't wait to listen to him and his guests discuss an array of interesting topics. And one of these days I'll get the answer to how the crew burned Cheers down for the first ep of the last season and then managed to reconstruct for the remaining stories. Sam forgiving Rebecca for starting the fire is one of my all time favorite scenes from my all time favorite sitcom.
His interests are quite interesting
Ken Levine wrote sitcoms, was a broadcaster of both rock and roll and Major League Baseball, and has wonderful long running blog. He is experienced and funny. Listen.
