Now he’s blazing a trail on television and OTT networks with the groundbreaking “Life In Segments” a show and genre Karel invented in 2014: Reality Talk. Life In Segments is seen on weekly on Free Speech TV, Revry and PlutoTV as well as online at lifeinsegments.com and is a breakout hit entering its fourth season in late 2017.
The show is heard by 10’s of thousands a day given the outlets and downloaded over 100k a month from Spreaker and iHeart alone. The TV show is one of the most requested/viewed on the network and all three existing seasons, plus planned season four and five, are on the GLBT format Revry as is podcast and supporting video.
Fast-paced, irreverent, no-holds-barred conversations and topics await anyone interviewed by Karel who, as President Jimmy Carter stated on record is, “one of the best interviews ever of my entire public life” and as Wolfe Blitzer announced “is certainly one of the best guests on the network when it comes to being honest and speaking what most are afraid to say.” Karel as guest is even more fun than Karel as host, and as Lawrence O’Donnell once remarked to Karel during a taping of a pilot for O’Donnell, “Karel as guest makes the host’s job easy, just sit back and enjoy the ride, every show become his.”
Karel maintains a hugely dedicated following on the West Coast including San Jose, San Francisco, Cupertino and the Bay Area; Los Angeles, Long Beach and Palm Springs stay on board because of the KFI Days; Seattle, Vancouver and the North West love the show because of the Progressive Ideas and Karel’s history on West Coast Radio; and Midwesterner’s find Karel to be the only GLBT voice in mainstream media making any sense at all outside of Stephanie Miller.
But with the advent of the successful TV show and return to recording, Karel is now enjoying an international fan base; and thanks in part to his many trips to Ireland, this includes a great following in that country as well as 12 other countries, each having thousands of Karel App downloads.
