This week, we’re introducing a new feature to Martini Shot: The Martini Shot Extended Universe! OK, we’re not doing that — at least not yet. Instead, on occasion Rob will be talking to people in the entertainment business who he usually only talks about. Executives, other writers, journalists, maybe even actors.

In today’s  conversation, Rob sits down with Richard Rushfield, the impresario behind The Ankler newsletter, which regularly beats the Hollywood trades at their own game (and yes, you should subscribe).

My least favorite thing about this election – and that’s the cream of a very large crop – has been the increase in polarization of the two parties. More specifically, I don’t like that it has made me feel like I can’t participate in discussions with people I consider my friends because they’ve prejudged any […]

This is my second time trying Riochet. During my first subscription, I simply didn’t find it compelling and quickly forgot about it. This time around, I exercised what used to be called “netiquette”. I lurked, got what I thought was the lay of the land and finally posted. Preview Open
