Aside from his position as a popular radio host, Travolta has worked throughout the U.S. as both an actor and as a director. He was the first celebrity guest star in Tony n' Tina's Wedding - starting out in Chicago and then branching out to revive ticket sales in productions across the country. In 2005 he was named alongside Donny Osmond and Patrick Cassidy as one of the Top Three Headliners in the World for the Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. His film and television credits include The Lurker, Fear Frenzy!, Old Advice from a Dead Friend, Upstaged - the Series, A Christmas Carol, For Your Home, Curb Appeal, and Crime Fiction.

For the October 2nd interview, Baldwin is scheduled to discuss what it is like being a female fight choreographer in a male dominated field. Travolta and his guest will also discuss the ins and outs of violence design, as well as the differences between choreographing fight sequences for stage versus film and television. The two will also discuss Baldwin's web series Like What You Like and her podcast Shakeshero.
