Gary Graham, television and movie actor, musician, and outspoken conservative provocateur joins Dave Sussman at the Whiskey Politics Studio overlooking the Pacific. Gary and Dave take in the sun and enjoy the view and a couple of mimosas while discussing how Gary went from medical school to acting, Star Trek, on-set stories, and the craziness of Star Trek conventions.

We also venture into the unlikely relationship Gary had when meeting and writing for Andrew Breitbart, working in Hollywood in the age of Trump, and his thoughts on the Never Trump conservative movement. We wax spiritual before closing with one of Gary’s songs from his band The Sons of Kirk. We had a great time and hope you have as much fun listening as we did chatting outside on this beautiful Left-Coast morning. Find Gary at GaryGraham.com.

    What’s not to love? Gary Graham has enjoyed a busy career in Hollywood, appreciates his fans, and likes doing Sci-fi conventions. On top of all that, he came out as conservative in 2009, and has been an activist for self-determination and freedom. He’s smart, funny, charming and gracious in this interview; once again, the long form allows Dave to really explore the qualities of the individual. Gary is a gem. Out of well over a hundred, this is one of my favorites. Be sure not to miss “The Sons of Kirk”.

    Thank you for this enjoyable interview of a most interesting man with the courage of his convictions. Maybe there is hope for Hollywood as more and more people like him come forward. I like his music too!

    I’m halfway through the podcast and had to laugh at Gary’s experience with the fans who lose track of the fiction/reality border. I was at a science fiction convention once where a guy got into an argument with an author over what werewolves can do. The author didn’t know how to break it to the guy that werewolves are imaginary and can do whatever the author wants them to do.

    Yeah that cracked me up. I took my sons about 7 years ago to a Comicon and was amazed at the fandom. Between costume play and people lining up for 3 hours to get an autograph, these people are really dedicated. Thanks for listening Randy!
