Time away from the spotlight can be a bad thing.
But for Chrisette Michele, it was a necessary thing. Without the break, there is a strong possibility she wouldn’t be sitting in her Williamsburg apartment on a crisp morning, excitedly talking about her brand new album, Better.
To say the album title is fitting would be an understatement. Chrisette is giddy and proud to share the name of her fourth album with anyone who asks if only because she is a living embodiment of the word. “I’ve sang a lot of broken-hearted love songs because I had a broken heart from love,” says Chrisette. “I began to write a little bit darker. And for me, dark just means a song that doesn’t have a happy ending.”
On Better, even when Chrisette is laying her heart out on a table, she sounds confident and composed. Whether it’s the emotional Prince-like balladry of “You Mean That Much To Me” or the stern warning of “Snow,” Chrisette sounds independent and resolute. Even on “Soopa” a song where she explains to her lover that she won’t always be the perfect woman, Chrisette isn’t apologizing for her flaws as much she’s telling him, take it or leave it, and if you leave it, that’s okay.

Fresh off an appearance on L.A. radio, I went on the air in Oklahoma City today, too, and the mood was a lot different.Shocker, eh?
As always, I do not have a rooting interest in who wins this series. Like always, I just hope for a good story.
Well, today my wishes were answered as folks around the world debated the blown replay and the thrilling final moments of Tuesday night's Clippers-Thunder game. That was the main topic of discussion in this podcast, but it was not the only NBA matter we touched upon.

When I called Shirley Sanders to ask her if she would like to appear on this show, she was giddy and happy. She was turning 83 the following day; and she’d just returned from a very successful book signing for her very first book, "Sessy's Journey, 60 Years and three Generations of Wisdom". I heard about Shirley from a friend. The life she has lived could not have been foretold by her humble agrarian beginning. Mother of seven children (six of whom are no longer living) gave rise to her also being mother to some of her grandchildren! And along the way, she earned a Ph.D. and did a lot of good in this world. I want you to listen to Shirley and me talk and be inspired for your whole life! Click to visit Shirley's site.

Tonight the Honduran/Jew tandem talk the unionization of Northwestern University football and the landmark decision by the NLRB that allowed it. Recent developments in NFL free agency will be spoken on. They'll talk the demonization of Dan Snyder for attacking real issues in the Native American community. They'll take a gander at the standings on their bracket challenge and Ed's pessimism will lead him to concede with still plenty of March Madness left on deck.
Heidi Schwartz is VP, Strategic Alliances and Business Development at The Giddy Gander Company LLC and is responsible for all licensing opportunities and successfully growing the Wumbler property. Heidi has extensive experience within the licensing, marketing and sales arenas within the consumer products industry. In her words: Quite frankly, I love getting older. I guess it is because I am quite happy with where I have been, all that I have learned, and where I am going. Yes, I had rough times but one of the great things about getting older is that
the experience builds confidence and security in oneself. Fear is exchanged for assurance. Living life to the fullest takes on depth and meaning as a result of realizations you do not have when you are young. Having buried my
first husband (unexpectedly) over seven years ago, life's value to me become quite prominent in how I lived everyday from that point. Raising four children alone, transitioning two jointly owned companies (myself and my late husband), launching a third, highly successful company, then remarrying (not such a good decision). and becoming pregnant with my fifth child (a very good decision) only to face raising this child on my own as well....all of this has made me who I am - a wise and happy woman with steadfast feet and a forgiving, adventurous nature. Understanding how the mind, body, and soul connect has provided me optimum emotional, physical, and intellectual health." For Heidi changing the face of aging means choosing to be happy....to never stop growing....and to learn to make lemonade from lemons. Life is too short to do anything else.

Despite his best efforts at self-immolation following a hypocritical evening of smoking an e-cig and wearing his pants around his knees, I have managed to extinguish the flames and coax Dr. Dan to join in one more episode of the sometimes epiphanous, but most often downright ridiculous ASK DR DAN SHOW!!!
This episode is something we are both giddy with excitement over, since we are finally able to tell people what we really feel. I don't want to give it away, but rest assured that tonight's episode is going to be different from any other, and if we don't manage to offend you, we deeply apologize and will make every effort to do so as well as we can in the future. Consider tonight's episode to be our little way of giving back.
Tonight will be the last episode of our 2013 fiscal year as well as the final show for Dr. Dan in the year of 2013 on the Gregorian calendar, so let's all make it our effort to make this the best one yet. Your all-time favorite host, Ryan (me), will be not be back on the show until January 31st, as he will be on a quest to find his inner light. But fear not, for I will be back soon enough to drag the show down to the level of despair it rightfully deserves reside in.

His “Hope and Change” was a pledge to reverse Bush era policies, including socialism for the rich, adventurism in the Middle East, and attacks on civil liberties. He announced his intention to serve as a transformational leader, invoking Abraham Lincoln, FDR and Ronald Reagan as role models. Despite the frigid temperatures, people poured into Washington, DC to hear his inauguration speech, wanting to be part of a remarkable passage.
