Our guests: Arden Myrin and Michael Shure.
Arden is a tsunami of energy, talent and fun.
She talks about being a regular panelist on Chelsea Handler's show and even going to a party at Chelsea's home. (Mark tries to pump her for info/gossip).
Arden also talks about a party at Marilyn Manson's home (again Mark pumps for info/gossip)
Heather drops the bomb that her prisoner boyfriend has now proposed marriage! She slowly reveals details and we force plans for an intimate "meet and greet" reception.
Heather also prompts Michael Shure, the keen political mind for TYT networks and Al Jazeera, to weigh in on the 9-11 gift shop controversy.
Of course Michael can talk about anything and is a great friend of the show, funny and intelligent. But Mark Thompson lovingly never let's him forget he's working for a network owned by a country that supports Islamic terrorism.
Great hour of topical fun, serious discussion at times, personal dish and awesome energy.

After being the youngest co-founder of Greenpeace, Captain Paul Watson started Sea Shepherd Conservation Society as a hands on way to protect the world's oceans.
The captain takes us through the world of the conservation movement, reviews some of his experiences and why he became disallusioned with some of the work being done.
Watson shares the dirty secrets of some of the huge bigger charities-turned-eco-corporations.
He talks about sinking half the Danish fleet and Mark asks him why he recently had to stay at sea for 15 months to avoid extradition and how that has ultimately played out.
Finally, Captain Paul talks about his latest project to remove some of the plastic that ends up in the ocean and it's a project with a new partner, Pharrell Williams.
Emmy winning comedy writer David Feldman joins (after arriving late--we left his arrival conversation in the show).
Heather Ankeny joins Mark as always.
One note: because this is our first Skype interview we apologize for the occasional Skype alerts/sounds. Although we tried to minimize them, some still got through. In future this will not be an issue!
