This Week: Author, biographer and ghost writer Jenna Glatzer was a recovering agoraphobic still unwilling to be enclosed in an airplane when she was asked to write Céline Dion's authorized biography. Two weeks later, she was in the air, enroute to Las Vegas and to an adventure that would change her life and launch a career that has resulted in more than 20 books, including an authorized biography of Marilyn Monroe. She tells that story in the newest Chicken Soup for the Writer's Soul book, and she'll share that inspiring experience and many others on today's show.

"Slavery, Freedom and Reunion in a Colonial Connecticut Town" with Grant Hayter-Menzies, Daryl D'Angelo and Donald Roddy In June 1759, Norwich, Connecticut businessman Benajah Bushnell sold Guy Drock, a slave of African ancestry, to Sarah Powers, the Caucasian woman Drock had possibly married. Ironically, this deed freed Drock from Bushnell’s control but not from slavery. In March 2012, descendants of Guy and Sarah Drock and of Benajah Bushnell came together in Norwich for the first time in over two centuries. Drock descendants Daryl D’Angelo and Donald Roddy—who when they began their research years earlier did not know they had African ancestry, and Bushnell descendant Grant Hayter-Menzies—who thought only his Southern ancestors were slave owners—met to try to understand a legacy they did not know they shared. In the town where their past began, they sought to explore the personal impact of their ancestors’ intertwined histories, how the past has shaped them, their research and their interactions with one another today, and the relatively unknown institution of slavery in early New England.
Grant Hayter-Menzies is an internationally published biographer and journalist .
Daryl D’Angelo is a wife and mother, photographer and writer, and lives in a small town in southern New Hampshire.
Donald Roddy is a 78 year old retired Airline Pilot.
The role of soldier-scholar has long been a respected position in military forces around the world. They are a rare breed of warrior, combining the savvy of an experienced military officer with the intellect of a respected academic. One of the least known, albeit most effective such men, was Gen. Andrew Goodpaster, USA. A graduate of West Point and Princeton, “Andy” Goodpaster nearly had his career ended by a severe combat wound in World War II. However, thanks to the vision of an observant senior officer, Gen. Goodpaster became the primary military advisor to Pres. Dwight D. Eisenhower, eventually becoming Supreme Commander to NATO, along with a tour as Superintendent of U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
To learn more about this intriguing soldier-scholar, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham for Military Monday at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week will be U.S. Naval Institute Press author and biographer Robert S. Jordan, author of AN UNSUNG SOLDIER. Together they will try and shed some light onto the life and career of this impressive military mind and personality, and give listeners some sense of his vast influence on Cold War strategy and events. Listeners are encouraged to call in and offer questions and comments, and help explore a great American life.
Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in therapy and research. ***This show is a "Best Of" replay because I'm attending the annual Human Behav. & Evol Society Conf. in Miami. New live shows starting again July 28! What do men want? In bed and out? What do women want? How does this all tie together? (And who’s getting tied up?) These are just a few of the questions I’ll be asking and sex therapist Dr. Brandy Engler will be answering on tonight’s show. Dr. Engler is unique in that she opened a sex therapy practice for women -- expecting to slowly get some clients -- and quickly amassed a full list of clients: all men. Engler and New York Times best-selling biographer David Rensin have just published a fascinating book about her sessions and her insights, The Men On My Couch: True Stories of Sex, Love, and Psychotherapy. This is your chance to go inside her sessions -- to see into the erotic minds of men. And not pervos or deviants, but regular guys. Men we all know. Beyond the men, we will also see into the minds of the women having sex with these men -- or refusing to -- and find out why, and what it takes to balance love and eroticism in a relationship. All this and more on tonight’s show! Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sunday, 7-8 p.m. Pacific Time, 10-11 p.m. Eastern Time, at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.

ENVISIONS THIS: We can introduce the most creative change when we listen and learn what the system has to teach us before taking action. Our guest, F. David Peat, has been one of our great heroes since we first read his Synchronicity. He is also the colleague and biographer of leading quantum physicist, David Bohm. He is co-founder of The Pari Center for New Learning, which favors a gentle approach to learning that emphasizes human interaction in simple, pleasant surroundings without the intrusion of unnecessary technology.
In his new book, Gentle Action: Bringing Creative Change to a Turbulent World, David argues that often individuals, organizations or governments take action or give aid from the best of motives, but that such action is often disruptive and damaging to a community, economy or environment because they are imposing change from outside. David proposes that new forms of "gentle action" are needed, actions which begin from within the system in question and emerge in creative ways.. These may range from projects on an international scale to a simple action by an individual.
We are honored to have F. David Peat share his insights into bringing about a more sustainable future through GENTLE ACTION.
SUICIDE statistics have risen sharply in the United States over the last ten years, and yet it still remains a forbidden topic to speak about.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention published findings this month that indicate more people now die of suicide then of car accidents.
Why are we as a society reluctant to bring the subject out of the shadow of shame and into the light of healing?
HOST KATHY BARRETT interviews renowned Argentinian author MARTA MERAJVER-KURLAT about her book "JUST TOSS THE ASHES," a story about a successful lawyer who commits suicide and her son's journey to understand why. "Just Toss The Ashes," portrays the emotional impact that suicide has on the people left behind.
MARTA MERAJVER-KURLAT is an Argentine novelist, translator, essayist, and biographer. Her attraction to the ways in which mankind tells its own history encouraged her to undertake studies in myth, language, literature, psychology, and psychoanalysis. Accordingly, her novels Just Toss the Ashes, Los gloriosos sesenta y después, and El tramo final delve into intriguing aspects of human nature. She currently holds a permanent seminar on Tragedy and is a guest lecturer at APA (Asociación Psicoanalítica Argentina) and EFBA (Escuela Freudiana de Buenos Aires).

This week on Fieldstone Common, Marian Pierre-Louis interviews Nancy Rubin Stuart, author of Defiant Brides: The Untold Story of Two Revolutionary-Era Women and the Radical Men They Married.
Esteemed biographer Nancy Rubin Stuart takes a close look at the lives of Lucy Flucker Knox and Peggy Shippen Arnold to reveal that neither was simply a “traitor” or “patriot.” In Defiant Brides, the first dual biography of both Peggy Shippen Arnold and Lucy Flucker Knox, Stuart has crafted a rich portrait of two rebellious women who defied expectations and struggled—publicly and privately—in a volatile political moment in early America. Drawing from never-before-published correspondence, Stuart traces the evolution of these women from passionate teenage brides to mature matrons, bringing both women from the sidelines of history to its vital center. Readers will be enthralled by Stuart’s dramatic account of the epic lives of these defiant brides, which begin with romance, are complicated by politics, and involve spies, disappointments, heroic deeds, tragedies, and personal triumphs.
Nancy Rubin Stuart is an award-winning author specializing in women’s and social history. She has appeared on national television and NPR and has written for the New York Times, among other publications. Stuart is a board member of the Women Writing Women’s Lives Seminar at the CUNY Graduate Center and executive director of the Cape Cod Writers Center.

What do you know about President Coolidge? And why should you care? Tune in today to hear about one of America’s most underrated presidents with Biographer Amity Shlaes.
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately? There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective. Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting. But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree! If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
