You know her from tons of exposure on TV, and on comedy's prime stages: host of CNBC's Equal Time, Oxygen TV's I've Got a Secret, and many others. Stephanie Miller has also appeared on CNN's Joy Behar, Larry King Live, Reliable Sources, as well as MSNBC's The Ed Show, Hannity and Colmes and Neal Cavuto on Fox News, the Today Show, the Tonight Show, Good Morning America, among many others.
Stephanie comes to the left, from the right. She's the daughter of William Miller, Barry Goldwater's 1964 Republican presidential running mate. Her humor and snappy political wit draws listeners from all sides and makes her the perfect antidote to cantankerous conservatives.

Glasgow's talent pool clearly runs deep, and if the city's last few years of genre-busting electronic music have made anything remotely clear it's that Rustie is one of the deep-fried kingdom's crown jewels. Emerging with the rest of the multi-talented Numbers crew, and with only a handful of laser-guided releases to his name, his presence far outreaches his focused, evolving discography. Rightly mentioned in the same breath with many of the most innovative producers in the world, astute Pitchfork scribe Martin Clarke once described Rustie's music "like a metaphor for living in intense digital excess" - something everyone should be able to relate to.
Now after taking shape in the studio over the course of the past two years, 'Glass Swords' arrives, and as the otherworldly landscape of the album artwork suggests, it is epic and alien. Opening with the beguiling synth and guitar meditation that is the album's title track, this is the last chance to take a deep breath before the rushing neon strains of bright melody and earthquake drums of 'Flash Back' and 'Surph'. Next up 'Hover Traps' references the twitchy slap-bass and punchy electronic chords of 80's funk masters like Midnight Star and Lamont Dozier while 'City Star' achieves the perfect balance of tunefulness and menace of the best grime productions. Through the middle of the record, a triptych of tracks present themselves as the model of the updated version of rave music Rustie has mastered. First single (and longtime club favorite) 'Ultra Thizz' is all breakdowns and build-ups structured around whip-crack snare drums, while 'Death Mountain' and 'Cry Flames' deal in the kind of soaring hooks and basement low-end that might very well leave permanent marks on your home stereo.
