Thanks to my February 2017 guest on “News and Notes”. Erind has the amazing ability to see common sense in every situation. He is a man of much wisdom for the age of 35 and has very concrete plans for living the good life. If you haven’t heard it yet, you’ll enjoy my talk immensely with Erind, who came to America 17 years ago from Albania. I’m looking forward to having Erind on again soon.
My March 2017 podcast was with world-famous writer and philosopher Daniel Quinn. He is author of the epic book “Ishmael”. It’s a tale of truth about how we need to take care of the Earth before it is too late. My friend Broch at work convinced me to research his work and have not looked back since.

Future guests include, Laura Love, singer/songwriter and author of the wonderful book about the Occupy Movement called “Nights in Tents” Here is the link to the book on Amazon. It is a great way to experience vicariously what it was like to experience the Occupy Movement on the ground level, with all of its idealism and delusion. The OM really broke the mold and, in my opinion, proved that people could still make a statement while democracy is still alive. Highly recommended reading.
Philosopher and PdD Professor from Tufts University Daniel Dennett has written a new book. Here is the Amazon site to learn more. Dennett is a fascinating thinker. Daniel has promised me an interview in the next several months.
I’ve just ordered Nina Sankovitch’s new book(out in April) “The Lowells of Massachusetts” an historical book about an interesting family who contributed greatly to society. Find out more about the book here. See Nina’s powerful TED Talk here. The talk explores her second book called “Signed, Sealed and Delivered”, her treasured work about finding an amazing chest of letters in a shed in the backyard of her New York home. Hear an interview with Nina tentatively scheduled for this summer on “News and Notes”.
