Join me "In the Pickle Brrel" at 8AM EST- 10AM EST as we take a look at issues of the week that may not have made your radar. Do you know the USA is suffering due tothe lack of immigration? Finally, some bipartisanship in both the House and Senate, even if it means nothing. One "major" candidate losing vital support in bid for the Presidency. Is it possible a major US airport may discontinue honoring World War II heroes to honor Obama? A budget; but, not really. These are just a few of the updates and commentary today "In the Pickle Barrel".
Is Love or Hate something that we "give" of "get" to/from others..or is it something or an energy that we choose to be at one with or not to be at one with?
Further, the most import question is: Who ultimately benefits when one chooses to Love or to Hate?
Find out this week on the upcoming Pluto-Nalagy Show with Jahwie & Nalagy.

Kevin Pollak joins host Robin Milling at the Tribeca Film Festival, now in it's 14th year to discuss his film Misery Loves Comedy. Kevin wrote and directed this insightful documentary about what goes on behind the laughter and what drives today's hottest comedians to get up in front of a roomful of strangers to be the center of attention and tell jokes. Kevin was ultimately curious about the type of person who suffers from 'hey look at me syndrome devoted to acceptance and appreciation.'
He tells Robin he began with a very strict shooting schedule which allowed for a commitment from comedians; most of them his friends such as Jimmy Fallon, Amy Schumer, Christopher Guest, Janeane Garofalo, Bob Saget, Lisa Kudrow, Tom Hanks, Kevin Nealon, and Larry David; to name a few. By the end he had over 60 but one that was sorely missed is the late Robin Williams, a mentor and close friend to Kevin, who unfortunately was not available during the locked-in time. Kevin says they had hour-long conversations which made up for his absence, and when he passed while he was editing the film it was a 'no brainer' to dedicate the film to him in his memory. “It was frustrating for both of us. He wanted me to know how much he wanted to be in the film, how much it meant to him that I was doing this and spoke a great deal about his own journey and misery and happiness and life. All of those things that long-time friends talk about.”
Kevin keeps very busy with his own podcast, Kevin Pollak Chat Show, and has no immediate plans to join his friend Larry David on the Broadway stage in A Fish In the Dark. He tells Robin, “I'm happy for Larry's now historical Broadway success but that is the last thing I want to do!”
Laprill O’Brien is a registered medical marijuana patient who has beat cancer twice and suffers from manic bipolar disorder. On the morning of July 7, 2014, eleven police cars screeched to a halt in front of her home in Diamond Bar with police swarming over her home because they had a tip that they were growing marijuana. Her children abducted by CPS, Ms. O’Brien was held in jail for five days before being released with no charges being filed at the time.
Although they have gotten their children back, she and her husband, Rick Gromoll have been charged with illegal cultivation with their next court date set for April 23 in Pomona. As the show’s first guests, Laprill and Rick reveal the horrors that happened that day, how it has affected their family and how their court case is proceeding.
Wondering whether the VA directive stating veterans who use medicinal marijuana should not be kick out of their pain management programs is being implemented? Then meet Ken Whitmire, a veteran receiving services from the Loma Linda VA Hospital for chronic pain related to service connected injuries to his back and neck. He had been kicked out of his pain management program because of his use of medicinal marijuana.
On Monday, March 30 he went back to his pain management doctor with the new directive in hand and became the first medical marijuana veteran at the Loma Linda VA Medical Facility to be reinstated into a pain management program as a result of the new directive. What happened when Ken confronted his VA doctor is remarkable, astounding and ever so gratifying.
As an interesting aside, Ken lives in Slab City, a bohemian encampment on the east side of California’s Salton Sea. In addition to his story of success at the VA, he will be providing us with the low-down on this unusual bit of Americana.

Alzheimer's Speaks is sadden with the loss of one of it's experts living with dementia. On April 1st, 2015, Dena Dotson planned to leave this world in hopes of a better life. Although everyone may not agree with her decision, it is important for us to honor her work and advocacy to improve the lives of others living with dementia. We will not judge her decision but accept the fact that none of us can really know what decision we would make if to walk in her shoes.
Today Dena no longer suffers from the symptoms of dementia which made her life unbearable. Today we will celebrate the gifts she gave us while here and grieve her loss together as a community.
If you are unable to join the conversation live, but would like a statement read please email Lori La Bey.
Everyone is welcome to join the conversation.
There is one rule for this show:
Everyone is to be respectful to Dena and her family. There will be no tolerance for anything less. We can and will debate the issue of life and death choice with dementia at a more appropriate time.

In order for the black community to overcome the economic depression it experiences year in and year out, it must adopt the fundamental and systematic support of black own business. Black businesses must raise their level of service to be unmatched by any competitor. There should be mutual levels of respect and expectation between the black community and the black owned businesses operating there. The community must understand that every dollar spent outside the community is a dollar lost and never recovered and the entire community suffers.
THE POE CONSEQUENCE:
In a section of Los Angeles near Dodger Stadium, two rival gangs rule the streets. For the Alvarado Street Diablos, it's been a year since the murder of one of their closest members at the hands of their sworn enemy, the North Rampart Lobos. A drive-by killing in his honor is planned, but things go wrong and an innocent bystander is the victim. Several hours later the one who pulled the trigger suffers a horrifying death, caused by something never before seen in its uniqueness. Many more such cases follow, all involving only these two gangs among the hundreds throughout the city. And each death occurs at the same time of day. The exact same time of day. What can these two enemies do to survive against an unstoppable power intent on their mutual destruction? How is a gang-hating young boy's attempt to save the life of a gang member tied into preventing a loved one's soul from eternal damnation? What does a mysterious psychic's prophecy conveyed earlier in New Orleans have to do with all of this? Exploring both the darkness and hope that define our emotions, The Poe Consequence integrates social and ethnic divisions through acts of fate and supernatural horror for the reader to observe and imagine.
Liam asked this question about Loneliness;
Nadia, I don't know if you have a topic for tomorrow. On this day you feel anything but lonely, it been your birthday but what about those who feel on the periphery of life, suffering with chronic loneliness? I read a Huffpost post about it today and in that post it stated that loneliness is more deadly than obesity. You spoke in todays show about meeting new people and trying new things but for those who feel lonely even around others they can feel isolated from the flock so to speak. What does the truth have to say for the lonely soul? Is it as Christ said in Origins of Truth "They are alone as they have earned" or is that taking those words out of context and there is more to it than that. From my point of view those alone want to be alone yet they suffer and obviously want to feel part of something. Again its not a one sentence answer. How do we deal with the lonely also? Christ said in Origins of Truth that we can welcome those who are without and welcome them into our group and not to blame them for been without (paraphrasing). I remember Christ also said "no-one is meant to be alone, not even those who want to" but as the Huffpost post stated "one in five Americans suffers from persistent loneliness". One in five is a lot not meant to be's Nadia.......................if you want to use this topic feel free.
