Join co- host Bobbi Hughes-Millman as she welcomes author Andy Weir to The Writers Lounge. Sit back and relax as Andy discusses what it's like to be a writer and he will also talk to us about his book: THE MARTIAN
Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.
Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there.
After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.
Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.
But Mark isn't ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?

This installment of The Forbidden Fruit will discuss the world problem of single use plastics with Bag Monster Andy Keller.
In 2004, Andy Keller, now ChicoBag president, took a trip to his local landfill after spending the day landscaping his backyard. He was horrified by what he saw. Single-use bags were visually the dominant article at the landfill that day, blanketing the landscape in a thin mix of white and beige plastic. On his way home he began to notice plastic bags everywhere, caught in trees and on fence posts, half drowned in gutter puddles and blowing in the streets like urban tumbleweeds.
That day Andy vowed to stop using single-use bags. Inspired, Andy dropped a few bucks on a second hand sewing machine and began sewing what would ultimately become the first ChicoBag® brand reusable bag.
We won't to shed as much light on this cause as possible. We're talking plastics here on The Fruit today. Join us!

Andy Stanley says:
There's NO win in COMPARISON.
Let's face it. Not a day goes by that you're not tempted to glance to the left and to the right to see how you measure up to the people around you. But it doesn't stop there, does it? You're tempted to compare your children to other children, your spouse to other spouses!
It's a TRAP!
Happy St. Patrick's Day! Our guests today are, Amy Lewis, Executive Director of SPCA Niagara and Polla Milligan Dir. of Development and Marketing.
Our discussion will focus on the status of the SPCA, planned activities and future plans for the expansion of the SPCA.
The SPCA of Niagara is a no kill shelter and services many of the municipalities in Niagara County. In 2012 the SPCA underwent a major restructuring to address funding and management issues. It is presently negotiating with the City of Niagara Falls a contract to continue service.
The City of Niagara Falls is exploring the possibility of building and maintaining their own animal shelter. A discussion of that idea is part of our program today.
It is my belief as a taxpayer that the city of Niagara Falls would create unnecessary stress in it's operating budget.
On tonight's show we will have on a guy that is a one in a million type of a person. The definition of optimism has his name in it. Listen in as Andy who is a very opinionated on political and global issues as we talk about current events.
During the beginning of the show we will get into learning about who Andy Hapney is and where he plans on going in life. He's an aspiring actor, comedian and musician. He will be telling us about his academic standing and accolades that he's achieved over the years.
