Emmy Award Winner Tom Skerritt, You Can Do It, Ya Just Gotta Keep Moving

I'm super psyched about this week's guest, none other than Emmy Award Winner Tom Skerritt. You might know him from his iconic roles in Top Gun, The River Runs Through It, Alien, M*A*S*H*, and Picket Fences. We chat about his humble beginnings in Detroit, to his first films with none other than Robert Redford, Sydney Pollack and Robert Altman.


Tom's love for art and creativity have lead him to start the company Triple Squirrels and the EVRGRN channel, focusing on sharing stories that bring us inspiration, light and hope. This conversation is one that all young actors can learn from, about how to approach their art and how to keep a positive attitude in such an up and down career, as Tom says "just keep movin' kid, just keep movin'...."

Arizona Diamondbacks Scout, Chris Carminucci: Never Give Up the Dream

Chris Carminucci currently serves as a scout for Major League Baseball's Arizona Diamondbacks. Globally renowned for finding diamonds in the rough, Chris has signed several obscure players who have thrived in the Majors, including standout David Peralta. He also went to my high school and had my Mom as a teacher but, despite her love for him, he describes his younger self as “a trouble maker”.Since leaving John Jay he has certainly lived his dreams, and his life story plays more like a Hollywood screenplay. Not only did he get paid to play baseball himself, but he has coached, managed, worn mascot-suits and written a book, among other things. Carminucci has done it all, including coaching and co-owning a team with Bill Murray, Lorne Michaels and Jimmy Fallon, yet somehow retained his humble blue-collar work ethic. Whether you're a baseball fan or not, this one is a must-listen.It is not the critic who counts. If you’ve been knocked down... get up, dust yourself off, and get back in the arena. If you want to give back, share this with someone who could use it and leave a 5-star review on Apple Podcasts, or wherever you listen, so more people find this show and benefit from these conversations.If you dig the show, click the link below for our new 10,000 NOs Insiders Community to learn how you can make this experience 3D by hopping on intimate, weekly Live video calls with Matt, including monthly drop-ins with some of his badass past-guests & VIP friends.SHOW LINKS:10,000 NOs: THE BOOKJOIN THE 10,000 NOs TRIBEFOLLOW MATT ON SOCIAL10,000 NOs INSIDERSGUEST LINKS:CARMINUCCI SPORTS GROUPSIGN ME: THE UNDRAFTED BASEBALL PLAYER'S GUIDE TO THE INDEPENDENT LEAGUES (BOOK)

Wherever You Go, There You Are

If you don't work on your perception of the world when you're in a "bad" place, it won't much matter when you're in a "good" place. It's easy to get caught up in thinking, "I'll be happier when..." I win the medal/get the job/break the record, etc etc.But is that true? Maybe for a short period of time, but eventually the buzz wears off and you're back with yourself again. Knowing this will release the day after the City on a Hill Season Two Premiere, and three days after having its star, Kevin Bacon, on the podcast, I'm rhetorically asking, "So they're out. Now what?" My mood and happiness will only be as good as my outlook, and unrelated to accomplishments or release dates.Monday Morsels are the short-form companion to our Friday Interviews of 10,000 NOs... brief riffs on the show's central topics & themes as food for thought to chew on throughout your week.It is not the critic who counts.
