KCRW's Martini Shot

  1. Ugly laughing2018/10/03

    This is Rob Long and on today’s Martini Shot I tell the story of the young comedy writer who has dinner with the older comedy writer, and the young comedy writer has the temerity to say something funny. Bad move.
  2. Sit in the chair2018/09/26

    This is Rob Long and on today’s Martini Shot I talk about the time I was in Gori, Georgia and I sat in Stalin’s old reading chair and it was pretty weird, and then I twist that into an analogy about the entertainment business, as I usually do.
  3. You’ve heard of me?2018/09/19

    This is Rob Long, and on today’s Martini Shot I tell the story of two actors up for the same part who interpreted the character very differently, and what happened after that. Spoiler alert: they both got the job. Which almost never happens.
  4. New rule2018/09/11

    This is Rob Long, and on today’s Martini Shot I use a very grim battlefield metaphor to describe the new Best Popular Movie Oscar award, coming in 2019. It’s a little dark, but then so is the entertainment business.
  5. Variety2018/09/05

    This is Rob Long, and on today’s Martini Shot I talk about Crazy Rich Asians and Black Panther and the reason the oldest trade paper in Hollywood is called Variety, because Variety is good, the more of it the better.
  6. Mastodon2018/08/29

    This is Rob Long and on today’s Martini Shot I talk about the rule of skinny dipping — you don’t want to be the first one to strip down and jump in the pool. You want to be fourth or fifth. Depending on the attractiveness of the crowd. It’s a metaphor.
  7. Is that a Show?2018/08/22

    This is Rob Long, and on today’s Martini Shot I use a very big and weird word — mam-ihlapi-natapai — a word from the Tierra del Fuego which means the look shared by two people, each wishing that the other would initiate something that they both desire but which neither wants to begin. Which is every day in Hollywood.
  8. Independent Board2018/08/08

    Next week, we kill ourselves on a scooter. For KCRW, this is Rob Long. TEASER: This is Rob Long, and on today’s Martini Shot I talk about the sexy and irresistible topic of corporate governance and the lack of it in the entertainment business. Edgy, I know.
  9. You can't do that2018/08/01

    On today’s Martini Shot I give two friends totally different and contradictory advice, and I still think I was right. They disagree.
  10. They did that2018/07/25

    This is Rob Long and on today’s Martini Shot I give you the secret code to undermining every writer in your life. Just listen to whatever idea they’re working on and say cheerfully, Oh yeah, they did that.
  11. The Team2018/07/18
    This is Rob Long, and on today’s Martini Shot I talk about why good teams need
    new people, not good teams need nice people, which is why people at Time Warner are
    nervous about the new people at AT&T.
  12. I get to do this2018/07/11

    This is Rob Long, and on today’s Martini Shot I talk about the two ways to respond to a knock on the door. They’re here, and they’re here. Guess which one I always do?
  13. Mini room2018/07/04

    This is Rob Long and on today’s Martini Shot I figure that if a bunch of lions is a pride and a bunch of turtles is a bale, a group of Writers should be called a Complaint. A complaint of writers.
  14. Parking lot resolve2018/06/27

    This is Rob Long, and on today’s Martini Shot I talk about the most painful and psychologically damaging moment in a show business career, and that’s waiting at the studio guard shed for the gate arm to rise. Even when it does, it’s harrowing.
  15. Starting over2018/06/20

    This is Rob Long, and on today’s Martini Shot I buy one of those organizer apps to make a to-do list of things I want to put into my other organizer app and I keep track of all of it using a notebook and a pen. So yeah, I’m writing.
  16. Eat happy2018/06/13

    This is Rob Long, and on today’s Martini Shot I discuss the 1938 discovery by a psychologist that people are at their most emotionally vulnerable when they’re eating, which is why everyone in show business is always trying to take you to lunch.
  17. Cancelled2018/05/30

    This is Rob Long and on today’s Martini Shot I talk about what everyone is talking about, the cancellation of Roseanne, but I talk about it in the context of Victorian menswear. Yeah, you heard me.
  18. You may also like2018/05/23


    This is Rob Long, and on today’s Martini Shot I talk about how Twitter learns about you and suggests content for you, depending on an algorithm. Which means that Kanye West and Donald Trump have formed a very weird algorithm.

  19. Now what?2018/05/16

    This is Rob Long and on today’s Martini Shot I talk about the best way to stay enthusiastic and creative and energized in the entertainment business, and that’s to have your show cancelled and need to come up with something new.
  20. You're fired2018/04/25


    This is Rob Long, and on today’s Martini Shot I describe the ins and outs of being fired in show business, which I hope isn’t tempting karma.

  21. Cheers Infinity War2018/04/18

  22. Hotel story2018/04/11

    This is Rob Long and on today’s Martini Shot I go to great lengths to avoid following the simple rules of life: eat less, move more, there is no easier way.
  23. Week two2018/04/04

    On today’s Martini Shot I talk about Roseanne’s second week ratings, which were terrific, and what we can learn from that, which is that traditional sitcoms are back, and I make sure everyone listening knows that I am currently represented.
  24. The wrong lesson2018/03/28

    On today’s Martini Shot, I make a bold and courageous prediction: since the hugely successful premiere of the new Roseanne, there will be more shows like Roseanne on television. You heard it here first.
  25. New material2018/03/21

    This is Rob Long, and on today’s Martini Shot I talk about the difference between TV shows set in the past, and TV shows from the past. One is nostalgia, the other is desperation.
