So glad to be back on this week!
We got recent news, updates and resources for you, plus:
What could be wrong with an adult publicly disclosing how he identifies?
Sharing some personal insight, Jerry Seinfeld recently revealed in an interview that he thinks he is probably on the spectrum. And the autism community reacted. The positive, welcoming responses came out in spades from many autistic advocates, while some complained that he is "too successful" to really be autistic. And it dodn't stop there.
Bath and Body Works has been a successful business, but is experiencing backlash after several of its stores reportedly told people with disabilities to get out, or were blocked from coming in at all.
We'll dish it out on all of this on today's show.
Thanks to our talented interns and volunteers for helping to keep our radio program going.

Jerry Seinfeld stirred up some controversy after telling NBC's Brian Williams that he identifies with the autism spectrum. The reactions were immediate and passionate.Some activists have said that Jerry was shamed and bullied back into the closet.
Last week, Jerry reportedly backtracked. Outlets like the LA Times are claiming he self--diagnosed, and that he is now "recanting."
So, what is really going on? Did Jerry self--diagnose and then backtrack? Did he disclose that he identified, then felt the need to clarify---or backtrack? Is it all a misunderstanding? Does it matter?
The Thanksgiving holiday is just days away. What are you thankful for?
We are thankful for you. We are thankful for the ability to continue with this show and its internship program.

Laughter comes to The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday October 15, 3 pm ET when Halli brings you two of the funniest people on the planet. Joining Halli is esteemed director and author John Waters and Seinfeld writer and author Peter Mehlman.
John Waters is an American filmmaker, actor, writer and visual artist best known for his cult films, including Hairspray, Pink Flamingos, and Cecil B. DeMented. He is also the author of ROLE MODELS, CRACKPOT and SHOCK VALUE. His new book CARSICK tells the hilarious story of America’s most beloved eccentric’s mid-life crisis journey: a cross-country hitchhiking journey.
Peter Mehlman began his career at the Washington Post. He slid to television in 1982, writing for SportsBeat with Howard Cossell. He has written for numerous national publications, including The New York Times Magazine, GQ, Esquire, and a multitude of women’s magazines. One year after moving to Los Angeles he ran into Seinfeld writer and producer Larry David, which led to Mehlman’s writing the first freelance episode of the popular TV Show, rose to executive producer and coined such phrases as “yada yada” and “double dipping.” His new novel IT WON’T ALWAYS BE THIS GREAT is a brilliantly funny story of the mid-life crisis of a Long Island podiatrist that begins on a sub-zero, wind-chilled Friday night when the podiatrist crosses paths with a bottle of horseradish.
We could all do with a dose of laughter. Laugh yourselves silly, Wednesday, October 15, 3 pm ET on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when Halli talks with John Waters and Peter Mehlman. We are Talk Radio for Fine Minds and Lovers of Humor. Tune in live online at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
Jerry Seinfeld: The Lost Interview Long before Jerry Seinfeld signed a deal with NBC to develop his show about nothing, he had nothing but the highest of standards in mind for the series. In a 1987 interview with Milling About host Robin Milling—which has never before aired anywhere—the then-33-year-old funnyman chatted about his influences, his development as a performer, the role of confidence in his craft, and the possibility of headlining on the small screen. When asked, “Do you have any interest in having your own show?” Jerry said, “No. Not unless it was by some very high-quality people. A Cheers type of situation or something like that. But I have no desire…” (To read the full story, click here.)
Distinguished actor Robert Hooks was born Bobby Dean Hooks on April 18, 1937, in Washington, D.C. He is the youngest of five children. Hooks attended Stevens Elementary School. He performed in his first play, The Pirates of Penzance, at the age of nine and after his family moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he soon joined the drama club and began acting in plays by such authors as William Shakespeare and Samuel Beckett. Robert moved to New York City in 1959 to become an actor. That year, he debuted as Bobby Dean Hooks in a touring production of Raisin in the Sun. He made his Broadway debut in 1960 in Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright, and became well known for his role as Clay in LeRoi Jones/Amiri Baraka's Dutchman in 1964.
His television career began in 1963 with the role of a police detective on the television series East Side/West Side. Hooks’ television career spans over forty years. Some of his other television series credits include The White Shadow, Trapper John M.D., WKRP in Cincinnati, Sister Sister, M.A.N.T.I.S., The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Family Matters, A Different World, Clueless, Diagnosis Murder, and Seinfeld. A genuine trailblazer for African Americans in this end of the entertainment business and a tremendous resource for information and encouragement.

Making a comeback in a big way, Transcendental Meditation (TM) is alive and well today. Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly, Jerry Seinfeld, and even the United States military sing its praises--never mentioning the fact that it is Hinduism with a dark history; another doorway to the world of the occult.
Why is TM gaining so much ground and what can we do about it? Walter Martin analyzes the theology of Transcendental Meditation from a biblical perspective...on Night Watch.
