Tola Talks on LA Talk Radio

I’m super excited to launch my new talk show, Tola Talks, on LATalkRadio.com this coming Monday – that’s right, Labor Day – and broadcasting live weekdays at Noon on Channel 2.

Tola Talks is all about positivity and inspiring listeners with my East Coast talk for a 21st Century world. No topic is off limits, and just like my 30-episode podcast, Get Your S#!T Together: GYST with Rich Tola, I plan on entertaining listeners with my no bullshit style and candid conversations with today’s Celebrities & Business Leaders, Fitness & Yoga Professionals, Love & Relationship Experts, plus Movie Reviews and Live Performances from popular Musicians.

Our first week is filled with an awesome Guest list including Celebrity Psychic Jeanie Jacobs MacDonald, the lovely and talented Actress Troy Titus-Barrow (who also co-starred in my film, Boulevard Zen), two amazing Yoginis – Linda Baffa and Jess Harper, Hollywood Photographer Jared Cowan (who also shot the still photography for the 1984 blockbuster, The Karate Kid), and LA Music Awards ‘Best Male Vocalist of the Year’ Erick Macek (also from NBC’s ‘The Voice’).

So get ready for my next evolution from Podcaster to Radio Host on Internet’s most irreverent, entertaining and cool radio station that’s home to more than 80 talk shows a week with over 1,000,000 listeners a month. And like the LA Talk Radio tagline asserts…”We say what we want”.

Have a great Holiday weekend everyone, and I’ll see you on the radio! – R

Ode to Robin Williams

Every so often, a kindred spirit comes along,

To make us believe, that every one of us belongs.

He stands his ground, to be laughed at from afar,

Or is he just behaving, like he’s singing in his car.

Because the joys of laughter, are keen pleasures to delight,

He accepts the Almighty’s work, and shines them like sunlight.

Be it true, Bicentennial Man, that your words are meant to heal,

Thus every single one of us, in your presence we should kneel.

For it is you, oh great one, who persevered when few believed,

To blaze a path for brethren souls, where our dreams can be conceived.

We thank you for your brilliance, we applaud you for your zeal,

Kudos for all the memories, because you doubtlessly made us feel.

Rest in Peace, Sir Robin Williams, and no worries about lucky seven,

Because for sure you’ll keep them laughing, at the pearly Gates of Heaven.

GYST #29: Stop the Cycle (Domestic Violence)

We owe it to our children and future generations to stop the cycle of domestic violence. So if you’re an abuser – or most importantly a victim – take heed from my charity, The Boulevard Zen Foundation, and Get Your S#!T Together with the healing powers of Yoga.

GYST #28: Exploit Your Senses

This episode is all about having success with two sides of the same coin: Making the Best of your two key Senses, sight and hearing, plus doing whatever you can to Learn from the Best. With a healthy dose of inspiration from a true hero and prolific author/activist, Hellen Keller.

GYST #27: Find Your Bliss (with Yoga)

Looking for a way to find great joy or happiness in your life (i.e, your Bliss)? What about Yoga, and more specifically, what exactly is this 6,000 year-old Hindu philosophy that prescribes a course of physical and mental disciplines defined by the Yoga Sutras and the 8 Limbs of Yoga?

GYST #26: Don’t Be A Hypocrite

Hypocrisy is a slow, painful cancer to the soul, so whatever you do, Don’t Be A Hypocrite. Here’s 6 reasons why with a little help from Academy Award winner, Ben Kingsley, and the cast of Sundance Film Festival’s Audience Award winner of 2008, The Wackness.
