Paul Vigna

Listen to "Paul Vigna THE ANATOMY OF THE WALKING DEAD" on Spreaker. The Walking Dead has been a hit sensation since it first aired in 2010, consistently dominating both network and cable television, and pulling in millions of viewers on a weekly basis. But the television program is so much more than stellar ratings numbers; it’s a fandom that spans the entire world, and includes everyone from celebrities like Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, to NFL stars, and beyond. One such super-fan is Paul Vigna, a reporter for The Wall Street Journal, who has written the definitive fan guide to this iconic television show. Part backstage pass, part love-letter to the show, and part zombie encyclopedia, GUTS: The Anatomy of The Walking Dead (Dey Street Books, on-sale 10/3/2017) is an in-depth look at the inner workings of a cultural phenomenon. Vigna, who writes weekly recaps of The Walking Dead for The Wall Street Journal, takes his passion for the show and marries it to his background as a reporter. The result is a book replete with factoids about the show, interviews with cast members, producers, and other notables, as well as in depth analysis of the entire series to date.

Kevin Cook

Listen to "Kevin Cook Electric October" on Spreaker. The 2017 Major League Baseball season ends in just under a month on October 1. The postseason begins 2 days later on October 3. And the 2017 World Series is set to begin October 24.                 And just in time for all this baseball excitement comes the new book ELECTRIC OCTOBER. And you don't have to be a baseball fan to pick up the book and enjoy it!                 KEVIN COOK - author of the award-winning Tommy’s Honor (now a feature film) - says: "I think of ELECTRIC OCTOBER as the best baseball story you never heard. A true story of momentary fame, friendship, teamwork, memory, and life’s biggest challenge: how we deal with the cards that fate deals us."                 The 1947 World Series was “the most exciting ever” in the words of Joe DiMaggio, with a decade’s worth of drama packed into seven games between the mighty New York Yankees and the underdog Brooklyn Dodgers. Red Barber, the radio voice of the game’s golden age, swore he’d never witnessed such unlikely highs and lows. It was the first integrated Series, featuring a rookie Jackie Robinson, who broke the color line that year, and it was also the first televised World Series.                 But it was also the setting for several unlikely stories of how baseball bestows instant fame – and infamy.                 Amid all the star power on display, Cook explores the story of a half dozen men who are remembered by the game’s historians and trivia buffs if remembered at all.                 Kevin Cook’s new book, ELECTRIC OCTOBER: Seven World Series Games, Six Lives, Five Minutes of Fame That Lasted Forever [Henry Holt and Company] gets its title from the moniker given to the Series by sportswriters at the time.                                 ELECTRIC OCTOBER spotlights six men who found themselves plucked from obscurity to shine on the sport’s greatest stage: sore-armed Bill Bevens, a journeyman who knocked on the door of pitching immortality; Al Gionfriddo and Cookie Lavagetto, who came off the bench to play key roles for the Dodgers; Snuffy Stirnweiss, a wartime batting champ who never got any respect; and managers Bucky Harris and Burt Shotton, each an unlikely choice to run his team. For some of these men, the ’47 Series was a memory to hold on to. For others, it would haunt them to the end of their days. And for us, Kevin Cook offers insights—at once heartbreaking and uplifting—into what fame and heroism truly mean.                 Small-town boys, most of them, each one a hometown hero, they spent a week in the national spotlight and then faded away, forgotten. Yet Cook’s deep reporting and lively narrative goes beyond baseball history to explore how an encounter with greatness can change a man’s life forever. These six lives combine to tell a great American story of fame, friendship, teamwork, memory, and life’s biggest challenge: how we deal with the cards that fate deals us.

Jimmy McDonough

Listen to "Jimmy McDonough Soul Survivor" on Spreaker. Al Green is one of the most intricate and elusive figures in popular music, and considered by many to be the greatest soul singer of the twentieth century. Yet he has never been scrutinized in print successfully. Jimmy McDonough's Soul Survivor: A Biography of Al Green is three years in the making and comprised of research that encompasses all known interviews, articles, books, and court records, as well as many sources who've never spoken on record before. It adds up to a warts-and-all portrait that all but obliterates his surface-only autobiography (which Green admits he hasn't read). The dichotomy between Green's public, God-fearing persona and the troubled, often-violent man in private is immense. He once said, "I'm a mystery. The people in my own church don't even know who I am. I'm not really sure if I know who I am half the time." Soul Survivor reconciles the two into one talented and complex individual. From hits like "Take Me to the River" and "Let's Stay Together" to Green's tortured road to gospel and how he demolished a million-dollar career along the way, this is the full treatment of the man whose life is the living embodiment of the collision between the sacred and the profane. Jimmy McDonough is a journalist and biographer best known for the bestselling Shakey: Neil Young's Biography and his biographies of Russ Meyer, Andy Milligan and Tammy Wynette. He has written for a number of publications including The Village Voice, Film Comment, and Variety. McDonough lives in Portland, Oregon.

Alane Adams

Listen to "Alane Adams Raven God" on Spreaker. When her 12-year-old son challenged her to write a book that he would actually want to read, author ALANE ADAMS knew she had her work cut out for her. Flash forward to the present day, and that challenge has manifested itself in Adams's award-winning LEGENDS OF ORKNEY trilogy, concluding this fall with THE RAVEN GOD.                 Full of action, adventure and Norse mythology, the middle grade series is perfect for fans of Percy Jackson and guaranteed to hook even the most reluctant of readers (just ask her son!). Her books are part of PopCulture classroom and taught at schools and she has an incredible online book club for schools.                  As a literacy advocate and founder of Rise Up Foundation (which has donated thousands of dollars and books to schools and libraries), Adams knew that there was something more she could do in order to encourage kids to pick up the series. Earning her title as a transmedia author, Adams decided to partner with Artifact Technologies to create BattleKasters, an interactive mobile game designed after the world of Orkney. With the ability to cast spells and interact with other players in real time, BattleKasters was a hit at Comic Cons across the country.                  She also teamed up with SAG foundation to donate books and money to their literary program (Storybook Online) where celebrities read stories aloud for children across the globe to access. Christian Slater read one of Alane’s books for the video series: http://people.com/tv/ed-oneill-reading-storyline-online-sag-aftra/

Steve Lynch From Autograph

Listen to "Steve Lynch From Autograph" on Spreaker. Legendary LA Hard Rockers AUTOGRAPH have signed a deal with EMP LABEL GROUP who will release their forthcoming album GET OFF YOUR ASS October 6 th on CD and Digital, with a limited edition vinyl LP version available in November. GET OFF YOUR ASS is the first official studio LP from the revamped quartet, featuring original/founding members guitarist Steve Lynch and bassist Randy Rand, alongside new vocalist/rhythm guitarist Simon Daniels (Jailhouse), and drummer Marc Wieland. Lynch, an iconic guitarist, revered Worldwide as a bona fide guitar hero (known for his signature 8 finger hammer-on technique), reactivated the band in 2013 with bassist Randy Rand after reconnecting at the NAMM Show. After approaching original vocalist Steve Plunkett, who was unavailable for the reunion due to other business interests, with his blessing, the newly resurrected AUTOGRAPH recruited former JAILHOUSE vocalist Simon Daniels, the rest, as they say, is history. GET OFF YOUR ASS features an updated, hard-edged (and keyboard free) sound for the band, featuring down-tuned guitars, and the fiery, blues-soaked delivery of Daniels, as evidenced on tracks like “Every Generation”, “I Lost My Mind In America”, and the first single, edgy title track “Get Off Your Ass”. The album also features an updated live version of the band’s classic rock staple “Turn Up The Radio”, performed by the current lineup. Says co-founder, guitarist Steve Lynch, “Get Off Your Ass definitely sets a new direction for the band, with an updated, heavier sound, while still retaining the signature melodic hooks people have come to expect from AUTOGRAPH. This record is bound to get the attention of old Autograph fans as well as the new. So put your ears on and turn this one up!! Adds vocalist Simon Daniels, “We are so excited about this record! This is a lineup of brothers with a vision and the perfect chemistry. We wanted the record to be musically timeless, and translate a heavier sound featuring the melodies and harmonies, but with heavier guitars and a more “in your face” attitude. The lyrics come from the heart and are directed to people of our current era, with uplifting messages and positive energy. It’s AUTOGRAPH on steroids.”

Teresa Giudice

Listen to "Teresa Giudice Standing Strong" on Spreaker. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star and New York Times bestselling author Teresa Giudice opens up about her tumultuous past year in her emotional new memoir Standing Strong. In her second memoir, Teresa chronicles her life since her release from prison and what it's been like to weather difficult times as a single mother. Though she recounts the happy memories she has experienced over the past year, she also touches upon some of the darkest times of her life, including her parents' hospitalizations for severe medical issues in late 2016, which led to the tragic passing of her mother in March of 2017. With unparalleled honesty and courage, Teresa opens up in Standing Strong in ways she never has before, showing her fans what it truly means to be a survivor. MORE ON TERESA FROM BRAVOTV.COM Teresa and Joe Giudice's marriage has overcome a lot of adversity over the past few years. However, The Real Housewives of New Jersey mom doesn't seem to be as certain about the future of their relationship as she once was. Teresa opened up during a recent interview with Us Weekly about whether her 18-year marriage to Joe can survive his time away as he continues to serve his 41-month sentence in prison. "Will I still be married to Joe in 40 years? I have no idea," she said. "You don't know what life will bring." The RHONJ author opens up about her marriage like never before in her upcoming book Standing Strong, which hits shelves October 3. In it, she reveals that she's still angry with Joe for getting them into the financial situation that led to both of them serving time in prison. "I know he didn't mean to do it intentionally, but I'm still mad at the situation," she told Us Weekly. "He should have been on top of everything!" When asked if Teresa has ever thought, "I'm done" when it comes to her marriage with Joe, she said, "Not yet." But the road to forgiveness might be a long one for the RHONJ couple. "When he gets home, we'll see. We have to ride this whole thing out. He has to serve his time, come home and do amazing. And then I'll answer that question," she explained. "But I am giving him a chance. That's why I'm standing by him." However, Teresa said that she learned from her time in prison that it might be best to keep their business affairs "separate" moving forward. "I'm never signing anything ever again. I think we should keep things separate," she said. "So in that way, we kinda will be divorced." Teresa has experienced some tense moments with Joe while he's been away at prison. The RHONJ author describes her life without Joe as a "f---in' horror movie" in the prologue to Standing Strong, which has been published in full by Us Weekly.

Mike and Kevin Mystery Science Theater 3000

Listen to "Mike and Kevin From Mystery Science Theater 3000" on Spreaker. Just in time for Halloween, the guys who make movies funny are back in select movie theaters nationwide for an exclusive rebroadcast of the 2013 riff on the zombie movie that started it all: Night of the Living Dead. Join Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett of RiffTrax.com for a hilarious riff on this masterpiece of brain eating mayhem! This one night event will be your only chance to relive this fan favorite back on the big screen. This classic 1968 horror film is where it all began. No, not the cronut trend, we're talking about the omnipresent zombie craze! 28 Weeks Later, Resident Evil: Retribution, that Zack Snyder remake of Dawn of the Dead...We wouldn't have any of them without Night of the Living Dead! (Pause to think about whether this is a good thing.) When she's attacked in a cemetery by zombies, a young woman named Barbara flees to an abandoned farm house. There she's joined by a ragtag group of survivors who band together to wait out the apocalypse, with the occasional light descent into madness. The rest of the movie plays out like The Big Chill, but instead of Glenn Close sobbing naked in the shower, they board up windows and occasionally get devoured alive. So in this respect, Night of the Living Dead is the slightly less depressing movie. Shotguns! Molotov cocktails! Exploding cars! Headshots galore! Like one of those awesome zombie video games (except you don't get to play it), RiffTrax Live: Night of the Living Dead is guaranteed to be scarier than Brad Pitt's beard in World War Z and funnier than the acting on The Walking Dead! You won't want to miss it! https://www.fathomevents.com/events/rifftrax-night-of-the-living-dead?date=2017-10-25

Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold

Listen to "Jordan Fisher And Lindsey From DWTS" on Spreaker. 2016 was a breakout year for multi-talented artist Jordan Fisher, whose talent clearly knows no boundaries, from TV to music to film and, most recently, Broadway. In January, Fisher's take as Doody in FOX's Emmy-winning broadcast of Grease: LIVE earned him critical acclaim and was deemed the show's breakout star by MTV and People Magazine. That spring, he released his first single, "All About Us," which was produced by Oak Felder (Alessia Cara, Arianna Grande, Rihanna) and melded influences of pop/soul/R&B. The song was the #2 most added song and a top 30 hit at pop radio. In August, Fisher released his self-titled EP, which debuted #18 on the Billboard Heatseeker album chart. After performing on The Today Show, the ESPY's Red Carpet Special and opening for Alicia Keys at the Apple Music Festival, Fisher was tagged to perform the end title credit to Disney's hit animated feature film Moana with award-winning songwriter/producer Lin-Manual Miranda. Fisher, who has been called out by Miranda as "super-talented," saw a lifelong dream of performing on Broadway come to fruition when he joined the cast of Miranda's uber-hit Hamilton, where he took on the dual roles of John Laurens and Philip Hamilton. When ABC was curating the music for When We Rise, an eight-hour miniseries event with music guiding the four and a half decade storyline, they looked no further than Fisher to cover the 70's classic, "I'd Love to Change the World." The song opened the two-hour premiere, directed by Gus Van Sant. The underlying thread to all Fisher's success across the board is music. He's not just a multi-talented performer but also a storyteller. His influences are diverse and can be traced back to his days growing up in a football town outside of Birmingham, Alabama, where he cultivated his tastes by listening to everything from Luther Vandross to Metallica while simultaneously developing his acting skills at the Birmingham-based Red Mountain Theatre Company. With a bright future in front of him, 2017 is sure to be another banner year as Fisher readies his debut full-length album. This fall he will release his new single "MESS" with Hollywood Records. Jordan Fisher is partnered with Pro Lindsay Arnold. ABOUT LINDSAY ARNOLD Lindsay Arnold is back for Season 25 of "Dancing with the Stars" and will be partnered with actor, Broadway star, and Hollywood Records singer Jordan Fisher!

THE MAGPIE SALUTE—which brings together the reunited guitar team of Rich Robinson and Marc Ford from the Black Crowes and bassist Sven Pipien (also from the Crowes) with other dynamic musicians and co-ed singers from around the world–are earning praise on their debut American tour that launched July 26 in Indianapolis. Of the 10-piece band‘s August 11 performance at the Peach Music Festival in Scranton, PA, where the set listincluded material from theirself-titled debut album (released June 9 via Eagle Rock Entertainment and available via Amazon here), Rolling Stone noted:   “The Magpie Salute, featuring Black Crowes alumni Marc Ford and Sven Pipien, members of the Rich Robinson Band, vocalist John Hogg, and a soulful group of background singers, took the stage to show they could be just as powerful as the Crowes ever were. Hogg’s voice stunned on a soaring version of the Crowes’ ‘My Morning Song‘…and the band debuted the original tune ‘Omission,‘an electrifying hybrid of hard rock and Southern blues with a melodic bridge.“–Matt Mattei, 8/14/17   On their 60-show summer-into-fall outing including two-night engagement in Chicago (Metro), San Francisco (The Fillmore) and New York City (Irving Plaza), THE MAGPIE SALUTE are drawing from over 170 songs including material by The Black Crowes, solo albums from Rich Robinson and Marc Ford, and classic cover songs that have inspired the band.   As a result, their shows are unpredictable and completely fresh, with Gary Graff of the Oakland Press in Michigan hailing their performance as “…an organic and dynamic exposition of music in the moment“ (7/31/17). Writing in North Carolina’s Smoky Mountain News about the Asheville show, Garret K. Woodward said: “The Magpie Salute is a juggernaut of pure rock-n-roll swagger, the shock and awe of a triple-guitar assault on the audience, fueled by thunderous kick-drums and songbird backup soul singers” (8/23/17). Elsewhere, the rock blog Live For Live Music raved about the Atlanta show: “The energy stayed strong through their 20-song set, with incendiary musicianship blasting through the instruments of the artists on stage“(8/19/17).   THE MAGPIE SALUTE–whom will record a double album in 2018–features musicians who‘ve played together for decades throughout various projects and share a truly deep musical bond.

Jason Delgado

Listen to "Jason Delgado Bounty Hunter" on Spreaker. Jason Delgado knows the mean streets. He survived them as a kid during the height of the crack epidemic that ravaged the South Bronx, while friends and family fell into the violence wrought by the drug plague. As a young man he survived them again - a different type of "mean streets" -- this time as a lead sniper during Operation Iraqi Freedom. In his powerful memoir, BOUNTY HUNTER 4/3: My Life in Combat from Marine Scout Sniper to MARSOC (St. Martin's Press, on sale October 3, 2017, $27.99), co-authored with Chris Martin, Delgado recounts how surviving the Bronx was crucial for lessons needed for surviving Iraq, and just as important to him, discovering who he was as shaped by his lifelong battles here and abroad. With drugs and gangs all around him in the Bronx of the 1980s-1990s, Delgado knew his survival depended on getting out. The United States Marine Corps beckoned. Initially Delgado struggled to get up to speed, and his street tough mentality wasn't always the best trait to exhibit. Delgado, though, has always been a survivor and that suited him well. His well-honed instincts helped him rise through the ranks until he found himself one of the service's esteemed Scout Snipers. His reward? Being thrown into the hellfire that was, and still is, the war in Iraq. In that arena of battle, Delgado proved himself time and again to be one the most fearless Marines on the ground. And as a sniper, his performances were taking on legendary and cult-like status. His efforts on the field of battle turned numerous skirmishes in favor of the U.S. forces, in particular the nightmare that was becoming the Battle for Husaybah. Upon returning home, Delgado was given an extraordinary opportunity to become MARSOC's first ever lead sniper instructor. In accepting this position, he made himself a pivotal figure in revolutionizing the way special operations snipers trained and operated. But even as he accomplished so much on the field of battle and then in training future warriors - not to mention his successful business venture stateside - he continued to struggle with understanding how these experiences transformed him into the man he is today. Jason Delgado is a true American military hero, and an original who fought his battles on his terms, even when it ruffled feathers. That harsh upbringing, and battle-tested character, molded him into a loving father and successful entrepreneur, and a dedicated fighter against radical Islamic terrorism.

J Shaw

Listen to "Jay Shaw The Underdog" on Spreaker. The reason I started making music is because… I grew up always feeling like the underdog. Always told what I CAN and CAN'T DO! I wanted to start living for myself by expressing myself in music meanwhile shattering the glass ceilings anyone tries to place over me.

David Litt

Listen to "David Litt Thanks Obama" on Spreaker. At age twenty-four, David Litt became one of the youngest speechwriters in White House history, rising to President Obama's senior staff by 2016. Along with penning remarks on issues from immigration to criminal justice reform, Litt served as the president's go-to comedy writer. Taking the lead on the White House Correspondents' Dinner speech (the "State of the Union of jokes"), he was responsible for some of President Obama's most memorable comedic moments. With his memoir THANKS, OBAMA: MY HOPEY CHANGEY WHITE HOUSE YEARS (Ecco; On-sale September 19, 2017), Litt explores the triumphant highs, demoralizing lows, and hilarious surprises of life in the world's most high-stakes office building. THANKS, OBAMA has received praise from Judd Apatow, Adam Grant, Billy Eichner, Tig Notaro, Mike Birbiglia, and Anne Fadiman. Whether he's singing the Golden Girls theme song in the Oval Office or almost setting Barack Obama's hair on fire, Litt, who is currently the head writer for Funny Or Die's DC bureau, knows how to revel in his own shortcomings. But as Matt Walsh from HBO's Veep said, Litt's story is "inspiring-don't be fooled by the self-deprecating narrator, this portrait of a young speech writer is filled with massive wit, hard earned wisdom, and a loving touch." From his unique vantage point, Litt shines new light on President Obama's most historic moments: the passage of the Affordable Care Act, the 2012 re-election, the "Amazing Grace" speech after the Charleston shooting, and more. He examines Obama's legacy with refreshing candor and helps us understand our broken politics with genuine insight. And for all the absurdity he's witnessed, and the frustrations he's faced, Litt argues that there is no higher calling than public service - even in the age of Donald Trump. David has also written for The Onion, McSweeney's Internet Tendency, Cosmopolitan, Vanity Fair, The Atlantic, and the New York Times. He has appeared on multiple national television shows. Equal parts sharp and sincere, hopeful, and hilarious, THANKS, OBAMA is a charming, revelatory political coming-of-age story.

Holly Gleason

Listen to "Holly Gleason Woman Walk The Line" on Spreaker. Full-tilt, hardcore, down-home, and groundbreaking, the women of country music speak volumes with every song. From Maybelle Carter to Dolly Parton, k.d. lang to Taylor Swift-these artists provided pivot points, truths, and doses of courage for women writers at every stage of their lives. Whether it's Rosanne Cash eulogizing June Carter Cash or a seventeen-year-old Taylor Swift considering the golden glimmer of another precocious superstar, Brenda Lee, it's the humanity beneath the music that resonates. Here are deeply personal essays from award-winning writers on femme fatales, feminists, groundbreakers, and truth tellers. Acclaimed historian Holly George Warren captures the spark of the rockabilly sensation Wanda Jackson; Entertainment Weekly's Madison Vain considers Loretta Lynn's girl-power anthem "The Pill"; and rocker Grace Potter embraces Linda Ronstadt's unabashed visual and musical influence. Patty Griffin acts like a balm on a post-9/11 survivor on the run; Emmylou Harris offers a gateway through paralyzing grief; and Lucinda Williams proves that greatness is where you find it. Part history, part confessional, and part celebration of country, Americana, and bluegrass and the women who make them, Woman Walk the Line, edited by Holly Gleason, is a very personal collection of essays from some of America's most intriguing women writers. It speaks to the ways in which artists mark our lives at different ages and in various states of grace and imperfection-and ultimately how music transforms not just the person making it, but also the listener.

Jordan Fisher

Listen to "Jordan Fisher From DWTS" on Spreaker. 2016 was a breakout year for multi-talented artist Jordan Fisher, whose talent clearly knows no boundaries, from TV to music to film and, most recently, Broadway. In January, Fisher's take as Doody in FOX's Emmy-winning broadcast of Grease: LIVE earned him critical acclaim and was deemed the show's breakout star by MTV and People Magazine. That spring, he released his first single, "All About Us," which was produced by Oak Felder (Alessia Cara, Arianna Grande, Rihanna) and melded influences of pop/soul/R&B. The song was the #2 most added song and a top 30 hit at pop radio. In August, Fisher released his self-titled EP, which debuted #18 on the Billboard Heatseeker album chart. After performing on The Today Show, the ESPY's Red Carpet Special and opening for Alicia Keys at the Apple Music Festival, Fisher was tagged to perform the end title credit to Disney's hit animated feature film Moana with award-winning songwriter/producer Lin-Manual Miranda. Fisher, who has been called out by Miranda as "super-talented," saw a lifelong dream of performing on Broadway come to fruition when he joined the cast of Miranda's uber-hit Hamilton, where he took on the dual roles of John Laurens and Philip Hamilton. When ABC was curating the music for When We Rise, an eight-hour miniseries event with music guiding the four and a half decade storyline, they looked no further than Fisher to cover the 70's classic, "I'd Love to Change the World."

Victoria Arlen

Listen to "Victoria Arlen From Dancing With The Stars Part One" on Spreaker. Face it. Embrace it. Defy it. Conquer it. These are the words that Paralympic Gold Medalist and World Record Holder Victoria Arlen lives by every day. At the young age of 11, the lifelong swimmer and athlete fell ill with Transverse Myelitis, a rare viral disease that left her in a four-year long coma and without use of her legs for nearly 10 years. Unbeknownst to those around her at the time, Arlen could hear the conversations going on in her hospital room while she was in the coma as doctors expressed losing hope for any sort of improvement in her condition. However, with unwavering support from her family, her health improved tremendously. In June of 2010, Arlen, determined to reach her childhood dream of competing in the Olympic Games, returned to the pool for the first time in years. In the spring of 2012, not only did she participate in four events at the London Paralympic Games, but she also took home one Gold and three Silver medals while also setting a world record in in the 100-meter free. Following her successful and inspirational recovery, Arlen has since become an on-air TV personality with ESPN. She has reported for numerous sports programs, including X-Games, Invictus Games, The ESPY Awards, Special Olympics World Games and SportsCenter. Her dedication, charisma, and inspirational story has not gone unnoticed. Once in the public eye after the 2012 Paralympic Games, the 21-year-old came to symbolize a beacon of hope for many. Since then, she has presented as the keynote speaker at many functions, including for TEDx and several Fortune 500s, like Disney, Pfizer and Liberty, sharing her remarkable story across the country. Victoria Arlen is partnered with Pro Valentin Chmerkovskiy.
