Over-forty, over-educated, underpaid and cranky

When he was 21 years old, Antonio Graceffo got a part in the Chuck Norris movie, Delta Force 2. At the time, he believed it was his huge break, which would lead to super stardom. Instead, it would be more than a decade until he had a part in a movie again.
Based on that movie, no one ever asked him to sign an autograph, and Kenner never made an Antonio Graceffo Delta Force action figure.
Working on the Chuck Norris film was an impact-full and hilarious experience which, like so many of Antonio’s significant life-moments, meant a lot to Antonio but neither Chuck nor anyone else will remember.
The experience spawned the story, Chuck Norris Doesn’t Know my Name” Which Antonio has recently released as a PDF e-book (e-story) on his website
This podcast is composed of a few outtakes from the longer story. In addition to making laugh at and pity Antonio, it will leave you wondering: Does the hero ever earn the money for his sister’s dowry, so she can marry? Do they ever catch the murder? Is the DNA evidence enough to get a conviction?
If any of these questions is bothering you, you will need to find the answers somewhere else. But if you want to know how the Delta Force story turns out for Antonio, you have to go click and download on his website.

For ten years I have been living in Asia, writing books and working on American TV shows, but my directors always tell me to tone down the accent, and my publishers tell me I can’t state my real opinions, because someone might get offended and sue us.
Now I got a podcast! My own podcast. And no one can tell me what to say. And I’m calling them like I see them.
And it’s not just the perspective of an over-forty, over-educated, under cultured guy from Brooklyn in Asia, oh no, I also look at America from the outside, and talk about our absurdities too.
