Sergeant Frank Woods is the character that drives the action in CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS.
Woods is acted by James C Burns, our guest today.
While Burns has been part of huge films and television shows in the past, it's CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS that's created a cultish following around him.
He’ll detail how the game has exploded in popularity and the fan base that has grown around this highly successful entertainment franchise.
Mark also asks Burns to comment on Heather’s performance in the CBS show BATTLECREEK which we hear a clip of.
Here’s a link to the Sgt Frank Woods Youtube channel that James C Burns mentions during his visit.
Then, we talk to someone who was so obsessed with CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS that he had to go to extreme measures to put the game out of his immediate reach. World famous professional poker player, Phil Laak joins us for the second part of the show and talks of his obsession.

Show biz talk and also the attempt to live a life of commitment to a cause...
Alexandra Paul had a successful acting career long before BAYWATCH and her activism in the world of animal rights has become in many ways just as high profile.
Mark, Heather and (King of TV) Paul Goebel ask her about film and television projects that she’s part of and then the conversation turns to activism.
Many say the secret weapon in Alexandra’s family from an activism standpoint is her brother Jonathan whose efforts to liberate animals and close down some of the most brutal slaughterhouse operations in the world, landed him in prison. He is widely recognized as one of the most committed activists in the history of the modern animal rights movement. Here, his gentle sound and thoughts reflect a heart touched by that world.
Jonathan talks about his time in prison and his life trying to make a difference in a world in which there is so much injustice.
