STAR OF THE DAY: TIM MEADOWS
(From 11/30/2012 "GRAND THEFT AUDIO" Episode)

This was one of the most remarkable podcasts Titans has ever done. Co-founder/still-head Titan Carl Kozlowski had somehow "Friended" Tim Meadows - his favorite "SNL" star ever - on Facebook, then one night he posted something outrageously anti-Obama, to which Tim Meadows responded "HOW are you my friend?"
That set off a two-hour thread exchange in the middle of the night, in which Meadows and Koz engaged in a highly unusual, personal and impassioned political exchange which is the hallmark of how America should work - people with different viewpoints coming together in dialogue to learn from each other.
By the end of the exchange, Meadows had changed Koz's perspective on the issue at hand and agreed to come on "GTA" to talk about the debate they'd had and discuss how America can come together rather than be divided.
It was amazing, heartfelt and still funny. Tim Meadows is a world-class guy, and this offers real insights into his deep heart and deeper mind.
And amid this contentious election year, this is a great episode to show that people of vastly different viewpoints can come together and talk things out and learn something from each other (well, i learned a lot more from Tim than he did from me, but...)
