One of the most powerful and influential people in the history of the music industry — a producer, A&R executive and record label chief who has been nicknamed "The Man with the Golden Ear" — reflects on his "epiphany" at the Monterey Pop Festival 50 years ago; discovering Janis Joplin, Bruce Sprinsteen and Whitney Houston, among many others; and how, at 85, he remains cool and in-tune with the culture.
But first: Bryan Fogel, the director of the Oscar-shortlisted Netflix doc 'Icarus,' joins Scott to discuss how a movie about super-sizing himself morphed into an expose of Russian sports doping — and compelled the International Olympic Committee to ban Russia from the 2018 winter games in Pyeonchang.
Credits: Hosted by Scott Feinberg, recorded and produced by Matthew Whitehurst.
