Previous Interview with Robert Kenner
Robert Kenner's Food, Inc., is one of the top grossing theatrical documentaries of all time, selling nearly 500,000 DVDs. Food, Inc. received widespread critical acclaim, dozens of awards and accolades, including an Academy Award nomination, and has influenced current food policy decisions. Kenner received a Peabody and an Emmy for Two Days in October, depicting simultaneous events in 1967: a deadly Vietcong ambush and a violent campus protest. He was co-filmmaker with Richard Pearce on The Road to Memphis for the Martin Scorsese series, The Blues. Newsweek called The Road to Memphis "as fine a film ever made about American music" and "the unadulterated gem of the Scorsese Series." Kenner has directed numerous specials for National Geographic and PBS's American Experience series, as well as award winning commercials and corporate films for a wide range of clients. Kenner recently completed When Strangers Click that premiered for HBO. He is currently creating a series of web and TV spots about the unsustainability of our industrial food system.

Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia
Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) occurs when the diaphragm fails to form or to close totally and an opening allows abdominal organs into the chest cavity. This inhibits lung growth.
CDH occurs in approximately 1 in every 2,500 births (1,600 cases in the U.S. each year). The diaphragm is formed in the first trimester of pregnancy and controls the lungs' ability to inhale and exhale. The cause of CDH is not yet known.
CHERUBS - The Association of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Research, Awareness, and Support
Founded in 1995, we are an international charity, helping over 5000 families in 60 countries.
Romance and adventure speak to most of us. Today, popular multi-published author Miralee Ferrell joins Maxine and Jeannie to talk about how persuasive female characters combine the two and still overcome great adversity. As strong women leap from the pages of her contemporary and historical fiction (like Dreaming on Daisies) and into our hearts, we can feel empowered, too. A Horse for Kate releases March 1, 2015 and is suited to young adult readers. www.miraleeferrell.com
Jean Bell is the co-founder of Conscious Kids Network along with Ty Andrews, and is devoted to creating metaphysical and fun filled media entertainment for youths of all ages. She is a New Thought motivator and licensed Science of Mind practitioner and resides in Stone Mountain, Georgia.
Her book, Brookie’s Adventure is a fun-filled and prancing story of a child’s exploration through nature and her own heart to find where God lives. Through Brookie’s loving and diverse family and the wonderful Mr. Buzz Bumble Bee, Sarah Rabbit, and the wise old fish Bruno Trout, Brookie finds her answer through the love and sharing of her new friends and the magic and wonder of nature!
Jean has two goddaughters who were both inspirational muses in writing Brookie’s Adventure, and an adult son who adopted her.
Jean has served in the United States Army for 10 years, and her last duty assignment was that of Drill Sergeant. Upon leaving the Army, Jean moved to Germany and her first civilian job was a kindergarten teacher. It was during this time she discovered unconditional love lives in the smiles and hugs of every child.
Excerpt from the book: “Sarah, all the kids at school say they found God. Some of them say they found Jesus, and Jesus is God. I told them that Jesus Rodriquez is not God, he’s our dentist, and they gave me a strange look. Anyway, do I have to find God, and if so, where should I look?”

As media use continues to explode among children and teens, parents’ concerns about what their children could be uncovering while online increases.
On average, children get their first smartphone at age 12, and research suggests kids and teens are spending more than 7.5 hours a day with their electronic devices and often without a safety net. That’s exactly why Focus on the Family is launching the Odyssey Adventure Club, a safe and fun environment where children can explore, create and imagine, all while developing their faith and learning biblical truth. For less than the cost of a monthly night out at the movie (membership costs $15 per month for up to six users), families will be able to stream the Adventures in Odyssey library, plus listen to exclusive new monthly episodes.
Russell is joined by activist, author, speaker, Ted Glick.
Ted Glick has devoted over 45 years of his life to the progressive social change movement. After a year of student activism as a sophomore at Grinnell College in Iowa, he left college in 1969 to work full time against the Vietnam War. As a Selective Service draft resister, he spent 11 months in prison.
For the last ten years Ted has played a national leadership role in the effort to stabilize our climate and for a renewable energy revolution. He was a co-founder in 2004 of the Climate Crisis Coalition and in 2005 coordinated the USA Join the World effort leading up to December 3rd actions during the United Nations Climate Change conference in Montreal.
Since the mid-70s, Ted has been actively involved in community organizing efforts around environmental, tenant rights, community development and racial justice issues in Brooklyn, N.Y. and northern New Jersey. On a national scale he has been a leader in coalition-building and independent politics efforts. From 1995 to 2005, he was the National Coordinator of the Independent Progressive Politics Network, with which he continues to work. He is the coordinator of the Essex/Passaic Green Party.
Over the years, Ted’s commitment to social justice has led him to partake in 20 extended fasts, six of which were for more than a month, including the Climate Emergency Fast in the fall of 2007 and two fasts in 2009.
His prolific writing on the movement to which he devotes his life includes his 2000 book, “Future Hope: A Winning Strategy for a Just Society,” and his column, “Future Hope,” which has been distributed nationally since 2000. In late 2009 he finished a book manuscript, “Love Refuses to Quit: Climate Change and Social Change in the 21st Century.”

Julie Anne Eason has been a professional writer for over 20 years. After figuring out that fiction writing wasn’t for her, she turned to freelance journalism and copywriting for a living. As technology advanced, she witnessed the balance of power in the publishing industry shift. Once the big New York publishers held all the cards. Writers were “lucky” if they could land an agent or a book contract. But now individuals are taking the initiative and writing, publishing, and marketing their own books without the need for an agent or publisher to give them a chance — which means that finally businesses, non-profits, and entrepreneurs can take advantage of the amazing power of books.
