READ MY LIPS' akaRadioRed goes beyond the typical blah-blah-yada-yada canned interview, engaging multiple guests in spontaneous conversations.

 

Teen bullying in Middle Schools is, sadly, a growing trend. What to do? Meet 15-year-old Heather Johnson, bullying survivor and author, "Hidden Voice –  A Story of Discovering Strengths". She says, "Bullies in today’s world are far worse than 20 years ago…Many parents are unaware their kids are being bullied until it has gone too far...The modern bully adds the power of technology." Heather encourages other bullied teens to discover their own strengths and self-worth. She was nominated for an Alaska Spirit of Youth Award; was a People to People student ambassador to Australia; and won F Magazine's 3rd place overall award for her novel excerpt, "Faded Portrait”. A large school district is buying her book for their curriculum.  www.heatherjohnsonbooks.com.

 

What is it about GOLD? Pretty, but mostly useless, gold has inflamed our passions like no other substance on earth. What accounts for the (sometimes murderous) frenzy with which people have craved it since it was first discovered? In GOLD: The Race For The World’s Most Seductive Metal, award-winning author Matthew Hart mines the rich economic, cultural and political histories of gold and analyzes its role today and in the future. As he did in his acclaimed book Diamond, he combines research and anecdotes to tell the story of the greatest gold rush in history – the one going on now.
