All About Bob (So Far)
Hosted by political writer Bob Cesca, The Bob Cesca Show launched on February 4, 2010 with the short-lived title "The Bob & Elvis Show." A year later, following the departure of Elvis Dingeldein, the show changed its name to "The Bob & Chez Show" with the addition of news producer and writer Chez Pazienza in the Summer of 2011 -- lasting until Chez's tragic death in February 2017 when the show changed its name yet again to "The Bob Cesca Show." For many years, we premiered one show per week before adding a second weekly show in May 2015 and a third, a Wednesday interview show, in August 2018.
Bob grew up in the D.C. suburbs of Northern Virginia. His parents were employees of the federal government, with his dad ascending to become the acting inspector general of the Treasury Department. He graduated from W.T. Woodson High School in Fairfax in 1989, and from Kutztown University in 1994 with a degree in political science and a concentration on media and the presidency. While in college, Bob was the editor-in-chief of the campus newspaper, "The Keystone," and the host of a daily morning show on the campus AM radio station, WRKU. During his final semesters, in 1993, Bob was an intern for the nationally syndicated Don & Mike Show, with Don Geronimo, Mike O'Meara, and Bob's current Tuesday co-host, news man Buzz Burbank.
Bob has done just about everything in the world of politics and entertainment, especially after he first started working on the internet in 1997. Let's do this list:
- Successfully won a local election in 2005.
- Designed numerous websites including the one you're reading now.
- Published a book in 2008 called "One Nation Under Fear."
- Hosted radio shows on terrestrial stations like WEEU in Reading, PA and B104 in Allentown, PA.
- Produced and directed an award-winning indie movie titled "The War Effort" in 2003.
- Created, pitched, and produced a sketch comedy TV show on VH1, lasting two seasons.
- Ran a cartoon animation studio for ten years called Camp Chaos Entertainment.
- Produced and directed around 1,000 animated shorts including viral cartoon hits like "Napster Bad" and "Spongebong Hemppants."
- Published articles in both print (Manhattan Magazine) and online (Huff Post, Crooks & Liars, Salon).
- Produced and directed music videos for bands like Yes and Meat Loaf.
- Designed album covers for artists like Billy Sherwood, Asia, and Yes.
- Produced campaign ads and videos for both political candidates and nonprofits like the Ohio Innocence Project.
As of 2019, and on top of hosting the podcast, Bob is a weekly contributor to Salon.com and The Banter, as well as a regular castmember on both the Stephanie Miller Show and Tell Me Everything with John Fugelsang on SiriusXM. Bob lives with his girlfriend, author and podcaster Kimberley A. Johnson, in the Maryland suburbs of D.C., after having recently lived in California and Hawaii.
