Show Notes

Love him or hate him, Jerry Springer is definitely one of the most interesting recent residents of Dirt Nap City. Jerry Springer is a former politician and lawyer who became famous for hosting the tabloid talk show The Jerry Springer Show from 1991 to 2018. The show was known for its outrageous and often controversial content, which often featured guests who were involved in infidelity, violence, and other scandals. Despite its often negative reputation, The Jerry Springer Show was a ratings success, and Springer himself became a household name.

But did you know that it all started with a check that Jerry wrote to a prostitute and gonzo political tactics while he was the Mayor of Cincinnati, Ohio?

In this podcast, Kelly and Alex discuss Jerry Springer's life and career. We will talk about his early years as a politician and lawyer, his rise to fame as the host of The Jerry Springer Show, and his transition into political activism. We will also discuss his legacy and his impact on popular culture.
