FOR DUMMIES: The Podcast

Jul 13, 2020

This week, host Eric Martsolf, the owner of three dogs himself, is joined by Gina Spadafori, the author of “Dogs for Dummies.” Gina's an award-winning writer on all sorts of animal topics including veterinary medicine, and will be our guide as we learn everything we need to know about dogs -- from puppies to pooches.


With over 3500 episodes of television under his belt, Mr. Martsolf has been providing "love in the afternoon" for NBC Daytime for the last 17 years. His portrayals of Ethan Winthrop on "Passions" and currently Brady Black on "Days of our Lives" have resulted in numerous industry accolades. He made daytime history in 2014 by being the first actor ever to win an Emmy in the Best Supporting Actor category for "Days of our Lives." His television credits expand into primetime (Extant, NCIS, Rizzoli & Isles), and his musical theatre repertoire consists of over 40 productions, including his critically acclaimed role as the Pharaoh in the Osmond Broadway Tour of "Joseph." Fans of the DC Universe will most notably recognize him as Justice League member and futuristic hero Booster Goldfrom the series Smallville.

Gina has been writing about pets for more than 30 years as a reporter, syndicated columnist and book author. Many of her books have been top-sellers, and have been co-authored with “America’s Veterinarian" Dr. Marty Becker, her writing partner since 2007. Before joining forces with Dr. Becker, Spadafori wrote the first three books in the “For Dummies” pet-care line. "Dogs For Dummies," her first book, was given the President's Award for the best writing on dogs and the Maxwell Medallion for the best general reference work, both by the Dog Writers Association of America.
