Ethan Millard and Alex Kirry discuss an averted disaster after a 70-year-old butcher in southwest England named Chris McCabe recently needed something from his freezer at work and while he was in there, the wind blew the door shut.  He couldn’t get out, no one could hear him calling for help, and it was around ZERO degrees so he could have frozen to death in as little as 30 minutes. What he used to escape was remarkable.  Plus, Ethan tries to convince Alex to buy a Lactation hut.

The Sundance Film Festival is upon us.  Ethan sits down with Sue Vicory.  We all knew about the big directors growing up.  Sue started in documentary films 15 years ago which was not very popular but now it is a great voice for women now.  She decided to get into film school after her kids went off to college and she went to boot camp in New York and was hooked.  She took an editing class in DC.  Now with all of that in her pocket, she thought she better make a film.  That’s when she is telling a story about homelessness.  Every film she makes she says that she made her last film but the projects keep coming.  She noticed that in the last 15 years, documentaries have made a big difference in women of all ages. 

Women are underrepresented in the directors chair.  Why do we need more women to be director’s?  Sue says it is because of the compassion that shows up in films.  It turns out to be a piece about love.  That’s where she created the Women’s Director Website.

She would tell women who want to be a filmmaker is that they need to show command and be willing to wear a lot of hats in the business. 

She got into film making while also still running a family business that has been in business for 120 years. 

How do you know whether you are a filmmaker or not?  She knew she was when she got started.  She says that we are all born to create.

This is a Sundance Film Festival Special.  Ethan Millard spoke with the Sundance Film Festival Panelist, Global expert of media and technology and one of the founders of E!, Larry Namer.  He is doing a lot in China and is a crucial part of the international film scene.  The US and Europe will continue to dominate the international film scene for the foreseeable future. Larry is applying his vision in China.  But his back story was that he was back east splicing cable.  Now he is a media entrepreneur. 

Larry is amazed by how technology is so high quality now.  You use to have to go to the movie theater to get high quality and now you can get it at home and on your devices.

Ethan is a Diet Coke fan.  Alex is all about Coke Zero.  Diet Coke is rolling out a new product.  They are offering Diet Coke in taller cans like Red Bull.  They will also offer new flavors that include Ginger Lime, Feisty Cherry, Zesty Blood Orange and Twisted Mango.  Who are they catering to? Millennials.  Why are they messing with it?  We have already had Cherry in Diet Coke as well as Vanilla and other flavors.  Ethan will likely try them all except for Cherry which he thinks will taste like cough syrup.  Diet Coke even released a video with millennials in them.   One guy in the video says it tastes like San Francisco.  How is that possible?  No one knows what San Francisco tastes like. 

#ZenHeadlines time!  A Trader Joes in Michigan is working on not waste their food.  They donated 35,000 pounds to a local homeless shelter.  It was food that was almost expired and the shelter used it immediately.

Ethan and Alex want to help you (and Charlie Daniels) appreciate quiche, so they watch an episode of KSL TV's Studio 5 with Brooke Walker.

Brooke and a guest make a pretty amazing looking quiche using eggs, tons of mozzarella cheese, a pie crust, tomatoes, half and half, and other amazing ingredients.  It's quite a recipe.  

Studio 5 with Brooke Walker is a great place for recipes.  Ethan and Alex have known Brooke Walker for a long time, even before she started doing Studio 5.

Charlie Daniels, yes the musician, said that the world needs more cornbread and less quiche.  He called that a redneck observation.  How silly.  Quiche is eggs, bacon, and cheese baked into a pie.  Charlie Daniels wrote The Devil Went Down To Georgia but he has no idea what he's talking about.

The Nightside Project knows food.  Especially breakfast food.  We know eggs, bacon, and cheese.  This Studio 5 recipe has a few other ingredients, but still looks awesome.

Charlie Daniels is criticizing Taco Bell.  Because they have their ads talking about the Illuminati.  He is trying to get them to stop.  He is a bigger guy and in his 80's.  The guys claim that Charlie Daniels doesn't know the difference between Quiche and cornbread. 

#ZenHeadlines is about a humpback whale pushed a snorkeler out of the water.  The woman didn't know what the whale was doing.  Come to find out that a Tiger Shark was nearby.  One humpback whale was swinging at the Shark while the other put the woman under it's pectoral fin and moved her out of the water.

The guys are watching the trailer for the new Tomb Raider movie. Alex is trying to pick out certain actors. One person was thought to be Wolverine but is really on the Wedding Singer. We know to not make promises to dead people. Now the trailer has become a video game to Alex. Someone did a Super Mario jump. But they both agree that you should go see the movie.

Alex's wife is forcing him to watch this movie.  He is interested in it because it looks like a musical.  At least on the trailer.  Also, a Zach Efron sighting! Alex is glad he will get extra points with his wife for taking her to a musical movie.  Calls his wife an old lady, so he will now lose those points that he just earned by calling his wife an old lady.

Maze Runner is compared to Mad Max. It's basically getting out of a bunch of mazes. Ethan is wondering why they have an awesome train but a crappy train and truck? Ethan informs Alex that it is about kids who get injections and they look at maps. Alex sees a mixture of the Matrix, the Hunger Games and Mad Max. The verdict seems to be that the movie looks exciting. Alex gives a spoiler alert.

#ZenHeadline will be exciting.  Mark Alex's words!

The guys discuss tab the drink.  Which Alex says is very underrated.  He had some over the weekend.  He encourages Ethan to try some.

What a world that we live in.  Is there a certain food that Ethan would eat that he is not allowed to eat if he wants to sleep in his bed?  Alex has had to ban the Pie Pizzeria completely because of gas.  Australian Scientists have been working hard.  The team developed an ingestible electronic capsule to monitor gas levels in the human gut and track any gas that you have coming, through your smartphone!  It also tracks and monitors the gas levels at all stages.  It also tells you the food that you have gas problems with!  

Would Ethan takes this?  He doesn't really have a gas problems.  He might occasionally.  But his colon is better than anyone else.  That is the claim from Alex.

Plus, a #zenheadlines story out of Nevada where lawmakers are finally cracking down on shark fin soup. It has been forbidden in most of Asia.  What they do is cut the fins off the sharks and that is the most valuable part.  Specifically Reno is the one having problems in Nevada with Shark fin soup.  Especially in casinos in Reno.

You probably should go see the movie "Slender Man." Be cautious when seeing a movie with Ethan and Alex because they point out everything that is fake. But the great thing about this duo. They are doing you a favor and helping you save your money from spending it on this movie.

It is time for Alex Kirry to rip on a headline.  A Ryanair flight was coming in to Spain and the plane had to sit on the tarmac for 30 minutes.  After that 30 minutes, a passenger got sick of waiting.  He went to the middle of the plane and opened the emergency exit door, grabbed his bag and jumped on the wing.  The other passengers convinced the man to go back into the plane.  The airline is filing a complaint for breach of security.  Ethan thinks that this man is a hero and should be recognized with a statue.  Alex doesn't agree with this.

#ZenHeadline time.  A middle school in Texas is organizing an event called "Mentor Day" and Breakfast with Dad.  This school was in need of 50-100 volunteer males to participate in this event.  They went around to businesses trying to get males to show up.  On the day of the event, they had 600 males show up from across the Dallas Fort-Worth area.

Ethan Millard and Alex Kirry join Brian and Amanda for another weekly edition of NewsMasters of the Universe to try and defeat one another on this week's news.  Politics, Mitt Romney, Orrin Hatch, President Donald Trump, Sports with the College Football Playoff, the National Championship between Alabama and Georgia is moot since one team (Central Florida) has already given themselves the National Championship in football.  Its all part of this week's new quiz.   

Jan 5, 2018

Ethan has worked with Alex for over 12 years.  Ethan called Alex by the name of Alan earlier in the day.  Now Ethan thinks that he might need to see a doctor.  He occasionally draw blanks.  He feels like his mind isn't as sharp and he isn't old enough for that to happen.

The President is going to the College Football National Championship game.  He is going to the 100,000 seat Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.  Causing more stress for the workers in Atlanta.  The mayor is saying to not leave their guns in your car.  Leave them at home.  Sounds like this has been a problem before.  This memo was added to the President visiting.

Ethan thinks it is inconsiderate to just show up to the game with little notice.  President Trump should just stay at the White House and watch it on television.  Does the White House have Xfinity? or DirecTV?

The morale of the story is just leave your gun at home.  Or just leave a post-it note on it saying there isn't a gun in the car.

#ZenHeadline time.  Scientists are working on a solution called "Crispr" to help the plant that produces chocolate.  It is having a heard time because of Climate Change. Alex eats his M&M's one handful at a time.  That is his chocolate intake.

Amazing footage online has surfaced of a man flying a drone over a beach in the Caribbean, when he notices a boy running into the water. When not one, not two, not three, but four sharks start heading for the young boy the man flying the drone panics, but all he can do is watch. The KSL Nightside Project's Ethan Millard and Alex Kirry talk about how the young boy wasn't even aware of what was happening, plus, how this boy was super lucky to not have anything worse happen to him.

But something incredible happens: a cat moves in with her newborn kittens as well. The KSL Nightside Project's hosts Ethan Millard and Alex Kirry just hope they have a good life ahead of them, but agree that the two animals and their newborns are getting along swimmingly in a tough situation.

Alex Kirry and Ethan Millard bring you a medical miracle, don't laugh just because the word 'poop' is used.  Doctors removed 29 pounds of feces from the bowels of a man who was reportedly constipated since birth. The unnamed 22-year-old had 30 inches of his grossly enlarged bowel removed by surgeons at Tenth People's Hospital of Shanghai in China.  Plus, a #zenheadlines story of a dog who just had welcomed a litter of puppies into the world, allowed a mama cat to also have her kittens in the same space as they sought refuge from the elements.

Have you ever wondered how hot dogs are made? Maybe you won't want to know how they are made after The KSL Nightside Project's Ethan Millard and Alex Kirry walk you through a video explaining the process. Think it's a simple project? Think again. Plus, Ethan and Alex talk about how they thought that meat was made and served to you. Again, after watching this you may question eating hot dogs. Or, you may still love them and you may be eating one right now. Maybe you shrugged that this is how they are made, and took one big juicy bite. Maybe...

The NSFW video that everyone was watching over the past month in their office was the streaker who went in his birthday suit across the field during the Buffalo Bills and New Orleans Saints blowout a few weeks ago.  The man embodied the type of focus and commitment to his craft that few people have these days.   What an icon.  Plus, the #zenheadlines story of the University of Utah QB who wanted his back up to get in during a bowl game so he untied his own show to come out.  

Jan 3, 2018

A brand new state law went into effect that day, and it's a big one. It's a first for the Beaver State. And it's sending shock waves across all 98,000-plus square miles and all 4 million residents.  Time to Pump your own Gas!  Ethan Millard and Alex Kirry read some of the best comments from residents who fear they will smell like gas all day for having to stoop to such levels.  Plus, a #zenheadlines story of two best friends who never knew they were actually brothers.

Jan 2, 2018

Ethan Millard and Alex Kirry are back for the first time in 2018 with a brand new episode.  Today, a #zenheadlines story of a woman who was able to arrange a private screening of Star Wars for her father in hospice all with the help of firefighters, doctors, theater staff and awesome community efforts.  Plus, a Judge Kirry moment when a man gets busted trying to buy a car listed on Craigs List with black market marijuana.  It was a Sheriff's personal car, so...didn't turn out well for him.
