    My Jonestown Experience: The Lure of Cults with Laura Johnston Kohl

    in Culture

    Tonight we welcome author and Jonestown survivor Laura Johnston Kohl to the show. When 914 members of Peoples Temple and four visiting Americans died in Guyana, South America on November 18, 1978, Laura Johnston Kohl survived.  She was one of 87 who lived through the trauma. 


    After participating with the Black Panthers, and attending Woodstock, Laura moved into Peoples Temple in California in 1970, and was an active and enthusiastic member until the day it ended.  She moved to Guyana in March 1977.  She frequently traveled between Georgetown and Jonestown, a 24-hour boat ride, but moved into Jonestown in October 1978.  Laura’s survival was a fluke.


    It took twenty years for Laura to rebuild her life and have the determination to research this tragedy.  The first ten years were spent in Synanon.  Then, she reunited with many of the other survivors to put the pieces together and to get some understanding.  After ten years she wrote her autobiography.

    Bridging The Generational Divide: Part 2

    in Business

    Denise Griffitts Interviews global business adviser and the foremost authority on generational issues and workforce culture strategies Brad Szollose. Please listen to our first episode Bridging the Generational Divide: Part 1 here.


    Author of the award-winning, international bestseller Liquid Leadership: From Woodstock to Wikipedia, Brad is a former C-level executive of a publicly traded company that he cofounded that went from entrepreneurial start-up to IPO in three years; the first Dot Com Agency to go public on NASDAQ. His company K2 Design, experienced 425% hyper-growth, due in part to a unique management style that won his company the Arthur Andersen NY Enterprise Award for Best Practices in Fostering Innovation. Brad works with companies like Dell, MasterCard Worldwide and BMW, helping them to Create High-Performance Organizations that include Millennials.


    Have Baby Boomers Been Betrayed?


    Has anyone noticed that there is a generational divide these days? Well last month, our guest Brad Szollose really explained WHY Millennials act the way they do…if you haven’t listened to it, it was such an eye-opening podcast, I decided to bring Brad back for part 2.


    The Millennial tech-savvy generation was raised on toys that interacted with them, a parent relationship that was more of an advisory role, and a school system that taught them there was no right and wrong. And that poses very real issues for business owners who employ them and Baby Boomers who are attempting to work side-by-side with them.

    Elliot Tiber - Taking Woodstock

    in Books

    Before there was a Woodstock Concert, there was Elliot Tiber working to make a go of his parents’ upstate New York hotel, the El Monaco. It wasn’t easy. The Jewish clientele who had returned to the Catskills year after year had discovered Florida, and the upstate hotel business was dying.
    To save his family’s livelihood, Elliot put on plays, musicals, and local festivals. In the process, Elliot became the area’s official issuer of event permits--not that anybody else wanted that position. Elliot even worked weekends as an interior design artist in New York City, all in the hopes of helping his family.
    In the summer of 1969, Elliot Tiber’s life changed in a way he never could have foreseen. Greenwich Village had become the mecca for gays in America. There, Elliot had socialized with the likes of Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams, Andy Warhol, and a talented young photographer named Robert Maplethorpe, and yet had managed to keep his gay life a secret from his family. Then on Friday, June 27, Elliot walked into the Stonewall Inn--and witnessed the riot that would galvanize the gay movement in the United States. And on July 17, when Elliot read that the Woodstock Concert promoters had lost their license to stage the show in Wallkill, he called to offer his help in finding a new venue. In the days that followed, Elliot found himself swept up in a vortex that would change his life forever.
    The events that unfolded during that hot New York summer have come to be recognized as major turning points in our cultural history. Few, however, have enjoyed Elliot Tiber’s unique view of those events. Taking Woodstock is the funny, touching, and true story of the man who enabled Woodstock to take place. It is also the personal story of one man who took stock of his life, his lifestyle, and his future. In short, Taking Woodstock is like no history of Woodstock you have ever read.
