the anything and everything talk and entertainment TV show


FPA and Potluck are now high def on Channel 10!

Hi! I'm the producer of the show, Gayle Yiotis, and no, Potluck is not a cooking show (although that doesn't mean we won't have cooking segments), it's a talk show. I named it Potluck because you just never know what we'll dish up next on this show. We will interview interesting people from all walks of life in the DC Metropolitan area, and even beyond.

Please scroll down to "Update" for news of upcoming shows.

Sadly, we say so long to our longtime host Laura Hartman. It's been a long ride but Laura now wants to take some time to pay more attention to other endeavors. It's so long but not good bye as we hope to entice Laura to come back to guest host from time to time.

We welcome our new Potluck co-producer and host,
Erik Kristopher Myers.

Erik Kristopher Myers is a writer and filmmaker, whose 2013 movie Roulette has taken home numerous festival trophies and received praise from critics. His latest Horror feature, Butterfly Kisses, brings his interest in folklore, urban legends, and skeptical inquiry to the screen. Released on October 23rd, Butterfly Kisses shot to the top of the Amazon.com charts for New Release Fantasy, and was featured on WJZ and Fox 45, as well as scoring rave reviews from high-profile Horror websites. Myers has written film criticism for The Dagger, contributes to the "Squaring the Strange" podcast, and sits on the Board of Directors for the Howard County Autism Society. He also looks great without a shirt, due to his general pastiness coupled with a killer Dad Bod.
