What better way to welcome back the AA Podcast with our first episode of 2013 than by talking to the one and only Michelle Beadle of NBC. Michelle's new show The Crossover launches Monday January 28th from New Orleans during Super Bowl week. We chat with Beadle about The Crossover, Access Hollywood, and more including... -Her input into the format of The Crossover and the pop culture/sports mix. -Her new co-host Dave Briggs and how the two will develop on-air chemistry. -Carrot Top being the most normal person on set for promos starring Jose Canseco and Gary Busey. -Balancing her work on Access Hollywood with a full-time return to sports. -The weirdest celebrity she's interviewed for Access Hollywood. -Her impressions of the Lance Armstrong/Oprah interview. -The bizarre Manti Te'o/Lennay Kekua hoax. -The "inspirational" Ray Lewis and Super Bowl storylines. -How the Lakers are turning into the New York Jets. Oh, and there's probably a few quotes in here that will make the hearts of NBC execs skip a few beats, but that's what makes Beadle one of our favorite guests... In case you've missed any of our podcasts, check out all of our interviews by subscribing to the AA Podcast on iTunes or our AA Podcast RSS Page.  For more from Michelle, follow her on Twitter @MichelleDBeadle.
