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.
Along with bringing you these shows, the program serves as an internship for autistic individuals to gain valuable experience in radio show production.
To learn more about the show, the internship program, sponsorship, or requests, please see the website.

From our family to yours--have a safe, joyful holiday.

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.
"Courage is fire, and bullying is smoke," stated former British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli. Adult bullying is a rising concern in the real world and online. Adults are as malicious as bad kids on the playground, but no one is supervising their activity or protecting their targets. And their victims are other adults who are not immune to the trauma of bullying. When one uses superior strength or influence to intimidate others, that’s classic bullying. Emotional abuse is characterized by subjecting another to behavior that may result in psychological trauma, like anxiety, chronic depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder. In one Seinfeld episode, George and Jerry recall their tyrannical gym teacher who used to give boys wedgies and encourage them to beat each other up. Girls don’t do anything like that, do they? Jerry asks Elaine. Oh no, Elaine replies. We just tease each other until one of us develops an eating disorder. The worst part of being bullied or abused in a relationship, is that often you don’t even realize it’s happening. Manipulative people twist your thoughts, actions, wants, and desires into something that better suits how they see the world. Bullies don’t want cooperation, they want control. Emotional bullying is often subtle and found in adult relationships and in the workplace. An emotional bully might use sarcasm, threaten, belittle, or humiliate. Join me and Life Coach Jenn A Nocera as we discuss the specific signs of bullying and emotional abuse. After the show check After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live for more info.
Jerry Seinfeld promotes it; the US Army spends millions on it for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder therapy; public schools teach it to your children...or will. What is it? The Hindu practice of meditation courtesy of the Beatles' favorite guru: Maharishi Mahesh Yogi--also known as the "Giggling Guru."

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.)
Some shows are so well done that their reruns shoudn't go unwatched. These shows are no longer airing new episodes, but they're still our favorites. Others series have such intricate plot lines that it's good to revisit their earlier seasons to keep everything straight. This week The TV Talkers will discuss what television shows are deserving of a "rewatch".
As usual there will be a lot of laughing and randomness. It's like the best office water cooler talk every week!
