Scott Cluthe has 2 great guests Thursday night, Liz Langley and Elizabeth Letts!

Langley is author of the new book Crazy Little Thing Called Love from Viva Editions.

Scott also interviews The Eighty Dollar Champion author Elizabeth Letts.

Crazy Little Thing is a look at why we want to be in love and the burbling, boiling soup of endorphins, hormones, and neurotransmitters that spill from our brain to make us do things that would otherwise be viewed as insane.

Investigative journalist Liz Langley traveled the country to research and interview singularly love-mad folks who maimed, murdered, and married. Langley reveals the science of love and lust, as well as very human stories. 

November 1958: the National Horse Show at Madison Square Garden in New York City. In the rarefied atmosphere of wealth and tradition, sleek hotheaded thoroughbreds piloted by seasoned professionals waited their turn to take on a course of towering jumps. Into the ring trotted the most unlikely competitors — a drab white former plow horse named Snowman and a young riding instructor named Harry de Leyer. They were the longest of all long shots and their win would become the stuff of legend.

 Then Scott chats with Elizabeth Letts, author of the best seller, The Eighty Dollar Horse, a true story. Harry de Leyer first saw the horse he would name Snowman on a bleak February afternoon between the slats of a rickety truck bound for the slaughterhouse. The big gray horse had matted hair, open wounds on both knees and harness marks across his chest. He was as plain and friendly as a favorite mutt. A man’s best friend kind of horse Harry decided. He bought him for $80.
