This American Life
In 2004 (rerun in 2005), Eddie, along with his mom and dad, appeared with Ira Glass to tell the story of his crazy Aunt Mary, a piece of cheese, and her last will and testament. The episode, beloved by many fans of the show, is called “Family Legend”.
It’s a perennial holiday favorite: the one-of-a-kind book, “The Finger: A Comprehensive Guide To Flipping Off,” a definitive look at the middle finger gesture, written by Eddie along with MJ Loheed and Matt Patterson (with photographs by Stephanie Hernstadt). Buy it here. At the height of Fingermania, the authors appeared on more than 30 radio […]
The DVD release of “Born Into Brothels” features the bonus extra of watching Eddie and Kirby Dick lose the Oscar to “Brothels” directors Zana Briski and Ross Kauffmann. Delight in watching others’ misery – and awards given out to films about others’ misery.
You can hear Eddie on the DVD commentary tracks for “This Film Is Not Yet Rated” ,“Twist of Faith”, and “Chain Camera”.
DVD releases of Se7en, Boogie Nights, and many other popular films contain bonus features produced and often edited by Eddie and pal/fellow producer MJ Loheed.

This treasure trove includes the interview “Dick on Sick,” the short film sequel “Sarah’s Sick Too,” and an amazing array of deleted scenes.
Eddie served as Post Production Supervisor for Tommy O’Haver’s acclaimed indie film Billy’s Hollywood Screen Kiss. If you listen very closely, you can also hear him doing Foley and ADR work, particularly in the wordless scene where Billy meets Gabriel for the first time. Yep, that’s Eddie doing the heavy cigarette puffing.
Eddie also served as Post Production Supervisor for the James Garner/Kathleen Turner TV movie Legalese and produced video playback segments used in the film. Memorably, co-star Gina Gershon really liked Eddie’s shoes.
See Eddie’s motion picture debut, in the end credit sequence of the way cool, star- studded indie flick “Floundering”. Eddie is visible at the very end, when the cast and the crew of the film sing “What’s So Funny About Peace, Love And Understanding.” In a few shots, you will see Eddie (in sunglasses) standing […]
