Jan in her own words:
First and foremost, I am a mother and grandmother. I formed my opinions about life at an early age and they haven’t really changed much since then – I believe war does not create lasting solutions, love will be the real revolution, and the human heart can expand until it holds love for the whole world. I have been a teacher, a newspaper columnist, a bank teller, a house cleaner, an executive director of a non-profit dedicated to education advocacy, a diversity trainer, AIDS activist, a group facilitator, and a waitress. Whatever it took to raise 5 kids and remain true to my values. I can’t carry a tune, but I love to sing and don’t know any steps, but I love to dance!
I have always used writing as a way to reflect on my own life and as a way to examine life's big questions. I have just started blogging recently. Mostly I have been concentrating on fiction and poetry.
I CALL MYSELF EARTH GIRL is my first novel.

Michael Jan Friedman joins us to discuss his latest work: "The Hammer and the Horn," Book I of the Vidar Saga.
Here is the Amazon Link:
It took place more than a thousand years ago...the Twilight of the Gods and the destruction of Asgard, home of Thor and Odin. But a sculptor named Vidar still remembers that horrific time. He is an immortal, a bastard son of Odin, and one of the few Aesir to survive the Twilight. Weary of the war-living ways of his kind, he has forsaken Asgard for Earth, traveling from land to land and guarding the horn of death that once protected the gates of his home. Now, after centuries in this world, Vidar hears the anguished cry of a kinsman. Asgard has been rebuilt, but a terrifying new enemy wearing Odin's war-mask has stolen Thor's hammer—and is planning a holocaust to consume not only the gods' home but Earth as well. Vidar knows he has no choice but to return to Asgard—and take the horn of Hell with him.

When she was 10 years old, Jan McInnis announced to her parents that when she turned 16 she was going to “buy a motorcycle, ride cross country to Los Angeles, and become a comedian.” Her parents didn’t quite share her “vision” so she ended up graduating from Virginia Tech and having a marketing career for over a decade before getting on stage. Today, she has spent the past 18 years making people laugh and showing people how to use humor. Jan has cornered the corporate and association convention market with her comedy shows and humor keynotes. She has been in front of thousands of organizations from The Mayo Clinic, to the American Heart Association, the Toyota Women’s Conference, and the Federal Reserve Banks. Jan was featured in the “Wall Street Journal” as one of the top convention comedians whose act is clean. In addition to being a comedian, Jan is also a veteran comedy writer who has sold material to just about everyone. Her material has been heard everywhere from the Tonight Show monologue with Jay Leno, to hundreds of radio stations, greeting cards, syndicated cartoon strips, and even guests on the Jerry Springer Show (her parents are proud!). She was featured in the Washington Post for her clean comedy writing, and she is author of the book “Finding The Funny Fast: How To Create Quick Humor To Connect With Clients, Coworkers And Crowds.”
Why does a living person need a blessing for the raising of the dead? Why is "prepare" a frightening word? Today on Open Book, Lori and Alice read and discuss three poems by Jan Richardson...poems that are sure to get you thinking about the meaning of life and death, the path of your life, and your journey as a human being. Don't miss it!
Conspiracy This Week Interviews Jan Irvin
Jan Irvin is the founder of Gnostic Media which is an open-source, independent media that pulls you outside of the box and into the heart of cognizance itself. Here the word ‘gnostic’ pertains to knowledge and not necessarily dogmatic ‘Gnostic’ teachings. The word gnostic has its origins in the word ‘knowledge’ or ‘to know’ [a. Gr. γν?σις investigation, knowledge, f. γνω- root of γιγν?σκειν to know.].
Topics of investigation include: Education and the 7 liberal arts (the trivium and quadrivium), the mystery schools, mythology, theology, psychedelics, mind control, archaeoastronomy, politics, economics, philosophy, physics, consciousness, diet, health, law and natural law, human rights, and much more.
By bringing together leading academic and independent scholars and providing with them a platform to present their ideas and research in full, we’re able to help facilitate and deepen understanding in these related fields – not only for the listening audience – but for everyone involved.
