James Edstrom And Jerry Springer

Throughout an illustrious career, Jerry Springer has become a cultural and civic icon. In addition to hosting The Jerry Springer Show, going into its 25th season, he has been the mayor of Cincinnati, political pundit, lawyer, Emmy award-winning newscaster, game show host, country recording artist, international emcee, TV personality and author. He has been in movies and on Broadway, he's a progressive talk-radio broadcaster and Springer won America's heart with his ballroom dancing. Springer now adds Podcast Host to his long line of accomplishments.

The Jerry Springer Podcast; Tales, Tunes and Tomfoolery, is an eclectic mix of stories, interviews, conversations and comedy bits. Each 30 minute podcast concludes with original music performed by local musicians. The podcast is recorded in front of a small studio audience at the Folk School Coffee Parlor in Ludlow, Kentucky. 

Springer shares the mic with his friend of 45 years, Jene Galvin. The two met during Springer’s political years in the early 1970’s in Cincinnati and have shared a brotherly bond ever since. Bringing the female perspective is Megan Hils. Both Hils and Galvin worked on Springer’s Air America radio broadcast for its two year run. Back together the three fell into a rhythm of talking about topics ranging from politics, current event and tough social/political discussion to radio-comedy skits, interviews, music and lots of humor.

Springer is excited about the opportunity to talk openly about all these topics saying, “I’m excited to be a part of my first-ever podcast with my friends Jene and Megan. I’m also excited to eventually learn what a podcast is.”

Among the conversations on the podcast is with a Freedom Rider who spent 42 days in a Mississippi prison in 1961 singing songs to pass the trying hours, a discussion of whether teachers should be armed to protect their kids from violent attacks, and celebrity parodies of Sarah Palin and Ann Coulter are among the unpredictable possibilities.
