I'm so happy to welcome back Simon Majumdar, a favorite on Art of Living. We haven't seen him since January of last year, and it's been far too long.
No stranger to Food Network, Simon is a regular judge on Cutthroat Kitchen, Iron Chef America and The Next Iron Chef, although he didn't start out in the entertainment industry. When he was 40 years old, he quit his job as a book publisher and began a new mission: "Go Everywhere, Eat Everything." Today he's traveling the country doing research for his next television and book project — Fed, White and Blue — which will celebrate America's vast and diverse culinary landscape.

Simon Majumdar realized, at the age of 40, that there had to be more to life than the daily 9 to 5 grind he had lived the last twenty years of his life. His genuine mid-life crisis included the death of his mother, and stressful changes at work that caused him to quit his job and set out to fulfill his life's ambition: to go everywhere, eat everything. This adventure cost Simon most of his life savings, took him to 31 countries in a little over a year, and resulted in his critically-acclaimed book, "Eat My Globe." He also authored, "Eating For Britain," in 2010, is a contributor to the UK's "The Guardian," "The Independent," and "The Daily Mail;" also, "The Daily Beast," "Wexas Traveller Magazine," and www.AskMen.com. In 2008, Simon was voted by "The London Evening Standard" as one of the "1000 Most Influential People in London,: and in 2009, "GQ Magazine" chose his "Dos Hermanos" as one of the "100 Best Things In The World," calling it "Michelin-starred food blogging." Last year, "Esquire Magazine (UK)," called Simon and his brother's blog, "Dos Hermanos," the #1 UK blog that restaurants fear, and noted that it's "still one of the most widely-read, and best," and the UK Press Gazette voted Simon #20 on the "Top 50 Food and Drink Journalists." On television, Simon can be seen as a recurring guest judge on Food Network's "Iron Chef America," and has been seen on Food Network's "Next Iron Chef," -Seasons 3 & 4), "The Best Thing I Ever Ate," and as a recurring guest judge on "Extreme Chef." website: http://www.simonmajumdar.co.uk

Well it has been a busy week for the 2016 presedential hopefuls. There is something delightfully peverse that it is FOX News that is staging the first GOP debate. Only the top 10 make it to the main stage, the other 7 will be entertained in a tent. No one seems keen on Trump being involved, The Tums will be flowing freely.
Dentist kills lion, international outrage runs high
Dems fighting their own battles. Hils pissed at the NYT, where is Biden?
Our weekly look at the bail bond industry. In some ways it is a bizzare industry. There are elements of law enforcement that don't like it, there are politicians that hate it, there are DA's that would lose no sleep if it went away. And of course last but not lease there is the man or woman that needs it!
Happiness however can be replaced by sadness in a heartbeat. Don't turn up for a court date, expect to have a grumpy Bail Bondsman knocking on your door.
A question I am going to ask this week is how seriously threats of death or Bodily Damage taken? Sure, most are said in the heat of the moment, but some, are cold and calculated.
I invite listeners to call in and join the conversation
SIMON MAJUMDAR returns to the show to talk about his new project, "Fed, White and Blue," where he will be traveling all over the United States learning what it is to "be an American," since he is planning on becoming a citizen as soon as possible. He will, of course, be doing this through his love of authentic food experiences. The author of "Eat My Globe" is inviting people across America to participate in helping him to experience America through unique not-to-be-missed food, volunteering to get his hands dirty from helping food truck owners in their kitchens, to harvesting crops, to heading out into rough waters with fishermen, and more.
