This week Laurie Beth is interviewed about her new book, "The Contessa Chronicles". While this is Laurie's latest book to be released, it is one that she has carried in her heart for many years. It springs from pondering the many scriptures that don’t resonate with modern times and understanding. From questions that are raised and then left unanswered. As a nun once asked in Berkeley, “Is God really just an old man, a young man, and a bird?” Why are women so easily erased and condemned in scripture? Why are the Wisdom passages so overlooked? Why is the Holy Spirit, presented as a feminine noun in Hebrew, so quickly reassigned a new gender in subsequent translations, leading to a male dominated culture in religion that belies common sense, as well as demographics?
Meanwhile, where’s the fun? The joy? The vibrancy that exists in life and yet seems almost non existent in the stories we are told about God?
Ultimately, Laurie Beth has come to believe two major things. One is that the Bible is a Love Story, largely of unrequited love. Two. That Jesus was a family man in the very largest sense. He spoke constantly about the love he had for his father. He called us his brothers and sisters. With his dying breath he asked that his mother be loved and cared for after he was gone. He invited us to come home with him, and feast at the banquet table. He said he would send the Holy Spirit to finish the work he started.
And even in Revelations, “The Spirit and the Bride say ‘Come.’” The very real possibility of a wedding exists, even though Armageddon has gotten a lot more air time.
And so we present to you, The Contessa Chronicles. A new imagining of how it might have been, and maybe even, really is, if we are open to tasting some new wine, and are willing to saddle up our own horses for the ride.
Laurie Beth welcomes to the show David Tuccaro, Jr. a Mikisew Cree First Nation who overcame his fight with Leukemia. His story is recounted in the book, Bad To The Bone, which has hit #17 on Amazon's Best Seller's list within one month of being released. He shares his tumultuous journey of self-discovery through pain, hopelessness and the feeling of inadequacy to inspire others to overcome adversity. It is a story of perseverance and hope that inspires you to have hope when there seems to be none present. David is now living out his passion of teaching others to save lives by registering to become a bone marrow donw. He spends his free time with his family and enjoying music.

Laurie Beth Jones serves up a variety of topics each week as she interviews friends like Patsy Clairmont, George Barna, The White House Doctor, and many others. She embraces each person with laughter, poise and grace and encourages the guests on her show to share their hearts, experiences and leadership.
Two Northwest songwriters got together and created magic.
Bradford Loomis and Beth Whitney had played together before, but decided to write a series of songs that would become "The Banner Days", an album that would dive into folk roots and Americana.
We will talk to both songwriters about their collaboration and bringing out a rich bluegrass sound from Seattle.
Please join Miss Catherine as she welcomes in two very talented and awesome artists, Miss Beth Whitney and Mr. Bradford Loomis to the show.
When artists Beth Whitney and Bradford Loomis began writing together, they had no idea their casual co-writing experiment would blossom into the much anticipated album The Banner Days (releasing August 23rd on MTS Records).
From the first time they played together, along with Beth’s husband/collaborator Aaron Fishburn, the chemistry has been powerful. The combination of Beth’s delicate, pure, and melodious voice and Bradford’s soulful, growling tone makes for a beautifully heart wrenching harmonious blend.
Their dramatic crescendos, minimalist intensity, through intricate harmonies have elicited comparisons to The Civil Wars, the Swell Season, and Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’ Raising Sand.
With equal parts sweetly anthemic, pop tinged folk, provided by Beth, and Bradford’s gritty, passionate Americana Roots sound, The Banner Days is an intrepid step for both artists.

This week we will be discussing the Rodney Lincoln case with Rodney's daughter Kay Lincoln.
We will be taking calls in the final segment. Please call in with any comments or questions: (347) 850-1478.
Rodney Lincoln is currently serving two life sentences for the murder of JoAnn Tate and the assault of Tate's two young daughters in April of 1982 in St. Loius, Missouri.
Rodney was convicted based on a hair found at the crime scene that was attributed to him and a questionable line-up conducted by police. Rodney has strongly proclaimed his innocence from the beginning and was fully cooperative with police during the investigation. Did Rodney's willingness to help police cost him a life of freedom?
The Midwest Innocence Project took Rodney's case in 2005. Their efforts would eventually lead to DNA testing on the hair evidence that secured Rodney's conviction. In 2010, Rodney and his supporters received the news they had been waiting to hear for years. The hair was not Rodney's. This new evidence has given Rodney hope that he will soon be coming home, after spending nearly half his life behind bars for a crime he did not commit.
Sadly, freedom has not yet come for Rodney Lincoln. The Midwest Innocence Project continues to fight for Rodney and his support continues to grow. Please visit www.freeRodneyLincoln.com to learn more about this case.
A very special show, with all the regular bits you like, Weird News and Hot Topics.
We will be interviewing musical guest guest Bradford Loomis and Beth Whitney.
When artists Beth Whitney and Bradford Loomis began writing together, they had no
idea their casual co-writing experiment would blossom into the much anticipated album
The Banner Days (releasing August 23rd on MTS Records). That first night, they wrote
“My Beloved” in two hours. And after a few more writing sessions, it was clear to both,
that these songs merited a bold decision.
From the first time they played together, along with Beth’s husband/collaborator, Aaron
Fishburn, the chemistry has been powerful. The combination of Beth’s delicate, pure,
and melodious voice and Bradford’s soulful, growling tone makes for a beautifully heart
wrenching harmonious blend.
Their dramatic crescendos, minimalist intensity, through intricate harmonies have elicited
comparisons to The Civil Wars, the Swell Season, and Robert Plant and Alison
Krauss’ Raising Sand.
With equal parts sweetly anthemic, pop tinged folk, provided by Beth, and Bradford’s
gritty, passionate Americana Roots sound, The Banner Days is an intrepid step for both
