Award winning filmmaker, screenwriter and author Steve Balderson has directed everyone from Academy Award nominee Karen Black and John Waters superstar Mink Stole to rock stars Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go’s, Backstreet Boy Kevin Richardson and Mike Patton. Steve and hostess Pleasant Gehman-whose appeared in several of his films - share incredibly twisted tales of location film shoots and debauchery in London, Hong Kong, Palm Springs and on the French Riviera for the Cannes Film Festival.

And you might want to pull over if you’re driving: at the end of this episode Steve, who is a Certified Master Practitioner of NLP and hypnosis, uses his skills to literally put listeners in a hypnotic trance.
