Episode 178: Author and TV Producer Lee Goldberg

Today’s guest is Lee Goldberg, author, television producer, and “charming man around town.”

Goldberg talks to Sean Tuohy about his love of mysteries and thrillers, his work on hit TV shows like “Diagnosis Murder,” “seaQuest,” “Spenser for Hire,” and “Monk,” his journalism career, and his relationship with the legendary Stephen J. Cannell.

He also describes one of the worst episodes of television ever made (featuring “Egyptian terrorists” and “sexy New York models”), what he looks for when choosing novels for his crime fiction publishing company Brash Books, and what authors and television writers need to do to learn their craft.
