Guest: Marko Costanzo, Emmy Award-Ainning Foley Artist When the Incredible Hulk got his own superhero movie awhile back, the invisible details of one particular scene were really important to director Ang Lee. It’s when Bruce Banner turns into the Hulk for the first time. Lee needed the stretching and snapping sounds of Hulk busting out of his human-sized shoes and clothes to be just right. In Hollywood, the job of making sound effects is called “Foley Artist” and Marko Costanzo is one of the best. He did the effects for Hulk and Life of Pi and Ice Age and True Grit and Silence of the Lambs and hundreds of other shows.

Guest: Don Shipley, Retired Navy SEAL, Military Service Record Investigator It’s a federal crime to lie about having received US military honors or medals in order to get some benefit.  But that doesn’t stop people from trying. And if they do it in a public form –like on TV or a viral video –they’ll probably get called out by Don Shipley. He’s a retired Navy SEAL who’s developed a specialty exposing fakers. He’s the guy who discovered the Native American protester in that viral video from a few weeks ago didn’t actually serve in Vietnam. Most of the time, Shipley’s investigations are lower-profile. He says he gets dozens of requests a day from people wanting to verify that someone’s claim of being a veteran is legit.
