Hello all, welcome to the latest edition of THE INTERVUE! On today’s edition, we are about to get some leadership lessons from a man who has had an extraordinary career, on the ground and in the air!
With our next guest, I want to ride the mighty wings across the sky with. During his twenty-year career in the U.S. Navy, he served as an FA-18 Super Hornet pilot, a Top Gun instructor and a Commanding Officer including a combat tour in Iraq & two tours of duty in Japan. He also served as a speechwriter to the Chief of Naval Operations as well at the director of Communications
He wrote Holding the Line: Inside Trump’s Pentagon with Secretary of General Mattis which was published in October 2019 and now he reveals the lessons he learned at the Navy’s Fighter Weapons School (TOPGUN) for the first time in his new book, TOPGUN’s Top 10: Leadership Lessons from the Cockpit, coming out this Tuesday, September 15th.

Welcome to the latest edition of THE INTERVUE! On today’s episode, let me ask a question. How much do you know about the U.S. Constitution?
In the upcoming three part documentary, A More or Less Perfect Union, A Personal Exploration by Douglas H. Ginsburg, explores the foundational document that governs those who govern us – the American Constitution. Hosted by Judge Douglas H. Ginsburg, a constitutional expert with 30 years of experience on the Federal Court of Appeals in Washington, DC, this thought-provoking, three-hour series looks at past, present, and future struggles for liberty through the lens of the U.S. Constitution. I recently had a amazing conversation with Judge Ginsburg to get a brief lesson of America’s defining document.
I’m a sucker for the sword and sandals epics and Arthurian Legend so Netflix’s latest YA yarn, Cursed, was right up my ally. The show is based on a book from comic book legend Frank Miller and takes a different take on the Legend of King Arthur. This time we actually find out how the Lady of the Lake came to be. Don’t worry I don’t spoil anything as that’s where our adventure starts off.
HBOMax has officially green-lit a Batman Television series that’s set in the same universe as Matt Reeve’s upcoming The Batman. The new show will be focused on Gotham City detectives and will presumably show the day to day lives of regular Gotham in a city that’s also occupied by It’s true and I’m not sure how I feel about this. I feel like I’ve seen this show already, oh yeah, it was called Gotham.
The Television Critics Association has announced the nominations for their annual TCA Awards and, surprise, Watchmen is tied for most nominations by a series (with Unbelievable).
HBO leads all networks/streamers with 16 nominations followed by Netflix with 10. FX/FX on Hulu earned seven nods; Hulu and PBS/PBS Kids are tied for fourth with six nominations, and NBC has five. Disney+ scored two noms and Apple TV+ got one.
One of the great things about this lockdown is all the opportunities the general public get to view a lot of panels and events that you previously had to attend to see. While we won’t be getting Comic Con this year, the folks behind Comic Con are doing Comic-Con@Home events. Warner Brothers virtual slate includes the cast of His Dark Materials (after a slow start S1 grew on me), Lovecraft Country, American dad and more. The only thing I question is why have this now when they are going to have their own Fandome event August 22? Check out the full slate.
