Ah rejection. A painful reality to life in showbiz. Nothing hurts more, and you never get used to the pain...Or do you? The show starts with Irene and N1L producer Chris Cornell swapping stories about painfully true N1L rejection stories. The inspiration for today's N1L was guest Jon Friedman, the host of a comedy show in NYC called "The Rejection Show." His show is a tribute to comedians and sketches that all got rejected. Legendary drummer Steve Bowman calls in and talks about the highs and lows of being the drummer in The Counting Crows to being the "on-call" drummer for Train. Director Nic Hill calls in to discuss the making of his documentary film Truth in Numbers. Finally, Scott Orn calls in to gives the flip side of the story...what it's like to be the person doing the rejecting.
