Who is this Josh Dean?  I am a magazine writer who resides in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, having fled the concrete and taxis of Manhattan for the greener pastures across the East River after the better part of a decade on the island. For many years, I was an editor at various magazines, most recently Men's Journal, where I was deputy editor. I left in 2004 to write full-time. Over the years, I have written for dozens of national magazines including Rolling Stone, Men's Journal, GQ, Travel + Leisure, Outside, New York, Entertainment Weekly, Inc., Fast Company, Spin, Golf, Men's Health, Runner's World, Budget Travel and Cosmopolitan, where I gave women questionable relationship advice for nearly two years. I am also one of the founding editors of PLAY, The New York Times Sports Magazine, and worked on that brilliant but short-lived project from its magical conception in the fall of 2005 until its untimely demise in late 2008, in the early days of print publishing's Ice Age. I was a contributing editor for Best Life for three years, writing about cars on a monthly basis and other subjects with less regularity, until that magazine was euthanized by Rodale in March of 2009. I achieved international reknown as a member of the US elephant polo team, which competed in the 2008 Elephant Polo World Championships, in Nepal. But you probably knew that already. To prove that I have at least part of a foot in this century, and that I can write for things that are not actually printed on paper -- and also to validate my obsession with international soccer -- I blogged the World Cup for New York Magazine. I'm currently working on my first book, SHOW DOG, which will be published by HarperCollins/IT Books in February of 2012, and also trying to get a handle on how to ensure that my first child, Charlie, becomes an international sports star. I am represented by Daniel Greenberg of the Levine Greenberg Agency.  Author of the new book - SHOW DOG

Graduated from Penn State University in 1983 and landed my first broadcasting job at the flagship station to SUN Radio Network in St. Petersburg, FL as a producer of talk radio. In 3 months advanced to a network producer, then on air as a national eventually local weather reporter for the Tampa Bay area. Held a position in management as a trainer to new hosts and producers and later Affiliate Relations Manager, eventually in 1990 started hosting, Talkin' Pets. Left SUN radio several years later and worked with USA Radio Networks for 1 year. I worked with Business TalkRadio & Lifestyle TalkRadio Networks for19 years under the title of V.P. Affiliate Relations and Programming, later worked with Genesis Communications until starting a new network ATRN.  Currently working with GAB Radio Network and with Josh Leng at Talk Media Network.  I am still hosting the largest and longest running pet radio and internet show in the country, Talkin' Pets, for the past 29 years... My one true passion in life is to help to educate the world through interviews with celebrities like Betty White, Tippi Hedren, Bob Barker, Linda Blair and others, authors, foundations and organizations like the ASPCA, LCA, HSUS, AHA, WSPA on the ways to make this world a better place for all animals and mankind whom all share this very fragile and mysterious planet called earth. This is the only home we have so we all need to learn how to share and maintain it so that life for us all continues and evolves forever...
