Sourdough with Jon Steinberg and Eric Winter from ABC's The Rookie

This episode is a bit different, because our usual partner in crime and regular cohost, Man One, can’t be here today. Instead, we’ve asked a couple of friends from the entertainment business to come in and co-host the show. So, in this episode we are joined by Eric Winter and Jon Steinberg. Eric is a successful actor, producer, and children’s book author who’s currently playing Officer Bradford on ABC’s The Rookie. Jon is a former actor turned entrepreneur and is the creator and executive producer of The Rookie. Inside this episode we dive into what brings us together as artists, no matter what medium you work in and how we all face similar challenges. We also dive into real life stories of a carjacking, an intense police car ride-along through a gang Christmas party, and new story ideas for The Rookie that encompasses the world of graffiti artists. We end it off by discussing Eric and Jon’s new projects and what it means to live a lifestyle that celebrates the arts and supports creativity. For an incredible conversation, stay tuned to today’s episode!
