    Colin Barrett, Jonathan Odell & Susan Wilson

    in Books

    On this episode, we'll highlight and give away two novels and a short story collection written by three acclaimed authors:



    Colin Barrett on Young Skins. A multi-award-winning debut short story collection set in the fictional, rural town of Glanbeigh, Ireland--a desolate spot where buffoonery and tension simmer and erupt, and booze-sodden boredom fills the corners of every pub and nightclub.
    Jonathan Odell on Miss Hazel and the Rosa Parks League. Inspired by Odell's childhood in pre-Civil Rights Mississippi, two young mothers--one wealthy and white and the other poor and black--have only two things in common: the devastating loss of their children, and a deep and abiding loathing for one another. As their relationship and beliefs grow, so does an unexpected friendship.
    Susan Wilson on The Dog Who Saved Me. After his faithful canine partner is killed in the line of duty, Officer Cooper Harrison finds himself jobless, on the verge of divorce and in a self-destructive rut. Then he becomes an animal control officer back in his hometown, where he works to rescue a wounded and gun-shy yellow Lab gone feral.

    SpokenHeard with James Barrett Rodehaver and Susan Dobbe Chase

    in Poetry

    James Barrett Rodehaver, also known as "Bear," to those who know him, and "Bear the Poet," onstage, is a happily married 32-year old bisexual poet and author living with his husband in Dallas, Texas. A native of Alabama, James has written poetry since he was seven years old, and it keeps him alive during the hard times. He is a survivor of many things, ranging from health problems that required up to six different surgeries to an abusive and tumultuous childhood growing up. He never gives up and his indomitable spirit shows through in his poetry, and touches many lives. He has written a book of poetry called "Strangely Wonderful," published by Penhall Publishing in 2013, and has created and compiled, along with Lilly Penhall, an anthology of survivor poetry called "Not Dead Yet." He works at his dream job as an editor at Penhall Publishing, a small but vibrant publishing company, and is currently working on his second book of poetry, which will be called Vital Signs., and will hopefully be released sometime next year.

    Sometimes we must take inspired action -- without analyzing and delaying. We must fearlessly act from our gut.


    We are in a time right now where we have brought collectively to the end of a long cycle that has taught us about power, money and success, setting limits or boundaries and change.


    Now, you may notice, you and others around you are facing a decision that requires something specific from you


    Join Barrett today as she talks about new beginnings and what it will take for this to occur

    It happened on Thursday, but the punches are still being thrown regarding the GOP debate. You have to love Trump, he has all of the class of roadkill. But he is amusing.


    The Iran deal continues to simmer. There are some left wingers that are now turning against it. The big question is... does it matter if congress don't like it? What will the rest of the world do?

    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?
