BLOOM BIO: Bloom is one of those inspiring, beautiful people you meet for a moment yet remember for a lifetime. Listening to this girl sing is like joining her in the front seat of a fast scarlet-red convertible, cruising the coast then heading for the mountains. With the feeling of the wind in your hair, you’ll have a smile on your face for the entire ride, even though it might be but for a brief moment in time before she takes off on the next part of her extraordinary journey.
Her songs, penned at the piano, are truly great pop songs yet make no mistake; these are not lightweight sugary songs with a cherry on top.
Bloom’s care-free attitude, her love of life, her stunning voice and talent for song writing, her drive and her beauty are apparent from the moment she starts to sing. This is one girl who will never give up, and who will no doubt get there – in a red convertible with the wind in her hair.
PIP BIO: Carefree and charismatic Pip, a 22 year old Southern gentleman from Marietta, Georgia, won the hearts of America when he partnered with Adam Levine on Season 2 of “The Voice”.

Today we are going to look at the news of the week with a special guest host who is a former Christian and now professes to be an atheist.
Our guest host is Karl Kemerait. Here's a little bit more about Karl, from Karl :)
I grew up in Connecticut, spent 10 years in the Navy. For the geeks out here I spent 1 year on board the USS Enterprise (the Aircraft carrier, NOT the Starship). I attended Gallaudet College in Washington D.C. where I majored in Interpreting (sign language) . I am married with 3 children, my wife is from Colombia and I have been an atheist for roughly the last 20 years. Prior to that I was a born-again Christian for almost 25 years were I spent my time teaching and with apologetics, evangelizing mostly people from various Western cults such as Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons. During my time as a Christian I attended Gathering of Believers in Maryland had an opportunity to meet with Bill Bright of Campus Crusade for Christ, and also Scott Ross who was the DJ on one of the first Christian "Rock" Radio stations in the country. I am self-employed and work as a computer programmer. For hobbies I enjoy building bird houses, playing tennis, trying to fix-up my '78 Fiat spider convertible and am preparing to take up the cello, even though it terrifies me since I have no sense of timing or rhythm!
Enjoy the show!

Adults are messy enough when it comes to love, sex and relationships. But for real rachetness, add money to the mix. Too many people pay dearly both emotionally and financially because they insist on treating love as a form of currency, like the yen or Euro, with an exchange rate convertible to U.S. dollars. For love, people will commit all manner of financial foolery, and we're talking about 'em. Join us!
