    In our 46th episode of COMIC BEAT INSIDER (CBI), Jimmy and Heidi MacDonald (The Beat Chief) are reunited with the State Fair crew of friends Erin Crosby (Forbidden Broadway) and Kerri Jill Garbis (Evita, Singing in the Rain) to discuss the 2017 modern musical film THE GREATEST SHOWMAN. What did it take to get this film greenlit? Is it okay that it was not a biopic & only inspired by Barnum's life? Just how catchy is literally every song? Did Zendaya & Zac Efron do their own aerial stunts? How was the hit song "This Is Me" written? Join us each week to listen in live. Send in topic ideas for future episodes.

    Episode 1154 - CNI Unplugged: Paul Bacera!

    In another unplugged interview, Jimmy is joined by new author, YouTuber, actor, filmmaker, KPop fan & fellow Filipino Paul Bacera! He's the author of a new illustrated children's book called ISDAMAN: THE LITTLE FILIPINO HERO as well as the host of his YouTube channel THE ASIAN THEORY. Just a  heads up, there was a bit of a delay during the recording. It's all good! Still a great interview! They discuss what inspired the book, importance of representation, and bringing Filipinos more into the mainstream. They also talk about his YouTube channel and get into a deep dive about KPop and Asian heritage. Also a fellow nerd, they cover comics, WandaVision, Marvel films and more. As usual, Jimmy's chat with Paul is more conversation than interview so we talk about a wide variety of things. A really fun and laid back time. Also, get a hold of us!
