Host Alison Cuddy with JC Gabel, owner of Stop Smiling Media, chat for the latest installment of The Weekly Guide.

Providing this week's installment of The Weekly Guide is kind of an old-school spirit. JC Gabel first helmed the now defunct Stop Smiling magazine. It was a throwback of sorts, to long-form interview publications like Esquire and Playboy.

Gabel upgraded his magazine into Stop Smiling Media. Now, as owner, he publishes books and hosts live readings and music events. So what’s JC doing when he’s not running around with the literary elite? He joined host Alison Cuddy to share his picks for the weekend in the latest edition of The Weekly Guide.
