I have two distinct lives. One in the trenches of low-budget film and television, the other in professional gambling. Because of the feast-or-famine nature of show business I need a reliable income... gambling. So here you will read about both worlds. Enjoy!

Life is a Gamble - Joseph Merhi part 1 episode 12

My guest this week is Joseph Merhi.  Joseph moved to Florida from a small town in Syria when he was 18 years old.  He spoke no English, but through grit and perseverance he went on to produce over 100 movies.  This is part 1 of 2.

Richard, I am enjoying your podcast very much. Came to me today that I would be very interested in an interview with Norm Wattenberger. I do not think I have ever heard him interviewed and he has been an important figure in the BJ world, though it seems he keeps a low profile. You are the perfect person to do such an interview ! Sam H
