It's a ROUNDTABLE ROUNDUP....Offbeat news of the day turns to a real live weekend with a molesting priest ...
ROUNDTABLE ROUNDUP SHOW....Some off beat items from the week's news discussed by our award winning panel: Jimmy Dore, J. Elvis Weinstein, Heather Ankeny and Mark Thompson.
Warning: there is discussion of sex and some of it is a bit on the bizarre side.
The show starts with a story of self asphyxiation in Thailand... then it's the sexual molestation cover-up in the Catholic church, Jimmy tells a tale of being in the literal hands of a molesting priest as a kid....Paris Jackson's suicide attempt prompts talk of "the fall of real information" and the utter irresponsibility of the media led by the celebritocracy reporters. Jimmy goes after Harvey Levin and Mark defends Harvey. Then Jimmy goes after Tom Brokaw (and Mark does not defend Tom)
Google glasses as an every day gadget??
Gloria Allred has another press conference in which she announces she's suing United Airlines because her client was exposed to a masturbating passenger for an entire cross country flight and we finish with Behind The Candelabra, the Liberace movie.

We heard from a few of you...our server initially dropped the last 4 minutes of the show.
Here is that final four minutes with a last second text message from arguably the greatest Modern Family and Danny Zuker fan who is in a federal penitentiary.

As a top producer/writer in Hollywood, Danny Zuker has had quite a ride.
He wrote and produced on shows like Arsenio, Roseanne and Just Shoot Me.
His latest project, MODERN FAMILY, is a huge winner on ABC-TV and loved by millions every week.
In addition, through Heather, we have found pockets of loyal viewership inside the FEDERAL PRISON SYSTEM.
Danny and Mark together learn a lot about the prison system and Danny learns that prisoners ask the tough questions about MODERN FAMILY.
They also reminisce about the early 90s in Hollywood, drugs, fast living and the moment at which they both laid eyes on PAMELA ANDERSON.
Mark Thompson hosts with Heather Ankeny and guest Danny Zuker.

Edge co-host Heather used to spend time (and apparently is still involved on some level with) a guy who is a prisoner in a California Federal Penitentiary where they are waaay into the TV show Modern Family.
It sets the stage for for questions about the show that come from the Federal Pen for Modern Family Exec Producer Danny Zuker (our guest in the upcoming episode)
And, of course, later Mark Thompson and Danny can't resist trying to figure out the crime that Heather's "friend" committed. This is just an excerpt.

This is the story behind Seinfeld and some other great shows from a monster insider.
As one of the founders of Castle Rock Entertainment, Glenn Padnick was responsible for trying to sell NBC on Seinfeld. Ultimately, it took A LOT of things coming together beyond just Glenn, Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld to make it happen.
What he tells us on this episode of The Edge includes stuff you probably never knew.
The Seinfeld stories alone occupy much of this episode, but there's some great stuff about Married with Children and other classic TV as well.
