Halloween treat -- Bram Stoker, author of Dracula, perhaps the most acclaimed horror novel ever. Born in Dublin in 1847, Bram Stoker published his masterpiece, Dracula, in 1897. The book was a success, and its popularity has grown for over a century. A classic horror novel, Dracula inspired the creation of adaptations such as the 1931 film Dracula, starring Bela Lugosi. Stoker introduced the vampire character of Count Dracula and tells the story of Dracula's attempt to move from Transylvania to England and the battle between Dracula and a group of men and women led by Professor Abraham Van Helsing. Written in the Victorian era, the novel touches on familiar issues: reason and science vs. religion and superstition, the rise of feminism, race, world domination, and breaking sexual taboos. Stoker did not invent the vampire, but he defined its modern form. Dracula has many supernatural abilities. He has superhuman strength equivalent to 20 men. Like all undead, he is immortal, but he can be killed by traditional vampire methods of wooden stakes, iron and/or steel weapons, wild rose, or holy water. The definitive way to kill him is by decapitating him preceded by impalement through the heart. The Count can defy gravity and has superhuman agility; he can climb upside down vertical surfaces in a reptilian manner. He has powerful hypnotic and telepathic abilities and is able to command animals such as bats and rats. Dracula can manipulate the weather, creating mists to mask his presence. He can take the form of bat, wolf, large dog, or fog. He can vanish and reappear somewhere else. He requires nothing but fresh blood, which rejuvenates him. “The blood is the life!” Dracula has not been out of print since it was published in 1897. After the interview, check out After Hours at Jersey Coastal Live.

My homeless friend Matt is back to update us on his situation.
Since we last talked to Matt (when he was in New Orleans via Florida), he was arrested for trespassing and locked in the county jail in Pecos County, Texas in Fort Stockton.
Bram & Barbara tried their best to get him out, but before they could, Matt was released on time served.
We'll talk with Matt about his further experiences. We'll find out how he views the world at this point.
Along the way, we'll talk about Homelessness in America: What causes it? What can be done? How close are we all to it?

Missouri has made the national headlines for very tragic and upsetting reasons within the last week, with the unnecessary shooting (murder) of young man Mike Brown. This is one of the many issues that 3 great Missouri candidates will tackle in this episode.
Arthur Lieber, running for Congress in Missouri's 2nd district, has been an educator in the St. Louis area for over four decades. He helped found the Crossroads School, which is now the Crossroads College Preparatory School in 1974. He was director of the school for 15 years. He founded a non-profit organization called Civitas Associates in 1991, which provides opportunities for students in the area to strengthen their thinking skills in the area of such subjects as international relations, human rights and urban studies. Learn more about Arthur's resume of positive influence just after 7pm Eastern: http://www.lieberforcongress.com/
Dr. Bill Hedge is running for Congress in Missouri's 6th district. Dr. Hedge believes in a few key things on his journey to Congress. Among them is the goal of rebuilding the middle class. As he puts it, "when the middle class wins, we all win." He also is ready to fight for women's equality. This means equal pay for equal work, women controlling the conversation about their bodies and allowing their powerful voices to be heard loud and clear. Learn more about Dr. Hedge's practical and positive approach to governance around 8pm Eastern: https://elect-hedge-to-congress.com/
Our final guest is Susan Cunningham, running for Missouri House, district 119. Susan believes in a living wage and expanding Medicaid to save lives and rural hospitals. Learn more about her campaign around 8:30pm Eastern: http://www.cunningham4staterep.com/

Sunday is normally reserved for candidates for office or for public office holders. This Sunday will be no different. We'll start in Missouri and move northwest to Idaho. No, this isn't the Oregon Trail, but it will be a worthy journey.
Our first guest is Jim Evans, fresh off a win in a primary for the seat he seeks in Congress in Missouri's 7th Congressional District. Jim's practical approach to problem-solving obviously resonated with Missourians. Now, with less than 90 days until Election Day on Tuesday, November 4, Jim Evans is back to make his appeal to Missouri voters. We'll also discuss the "Amendment One" "Right to Farm" action that snuck its way in with craftily worded language that now opens up the opportunity for more factory farming and affects the individual gardener/farmer. With his expertise in economics, statistics and farming, it will be valuable to hear his position on this and so many other issues. Tune in just after 7pm Eastern to learn more about Jim and his vision for the Show Me State: http://jimevansforcongress.com/
Our second guest is Spike Ericson, who is a candidate for the Idaho House of Representatives, running in House District 23B. Spike is a singer, songwriter, musician, family man and a man with a passion for Idahoans! He's ready to stand up to special interests and represent all local communities in southwest Idaho. Tune in after 8pm Eastern to hear more about his stance on the issues and his journey to the Idaho House of Representatives: http://democracy.com/Spike-Ericson
No one is getting sick on this trail...only informed & inspired. Let's get the conversation going...
Sadly, the topic this morning was triggered by a chain of events involving the death of a auto racer,
Kevin Ward, Jr. This morning's show will be centered on the issues involving this young man's death
that have been trending all weekend long. In particular, Tony Stewart, the driver who may or may not have made a bad decision and intentionally or unintentionally caused the death. Who can say what happened when Kevin Ward, Jr died Saturday after he was hit by Tony Stewart's car that fishtailed during a sprint car race?

With a hurricane of negativity & false ACA horror stories flying from the right, the truth is out there. The truth is negative (at the hands of Red State legislatures & Red State Governors), with denial of Medicaid Expansion money (already paid for by Red State taxpayers) costing lives. The truth is also positive, with hundreds of thousands of citizens getting more comprehensive coverage, as well as lower monthly premiums and lower deductibles.
Our first guest is Lindsey Benage, of Kansas, who has seen the negativity of Red State pushback, as manifested by ultra-conservative Gov. Sam Brownback and the Kansas legislature. People are most certainly dying, as evidenced by Mayor O'Neal walking to DC to raise awareness that citizens of his town Belhaven, NC are dying without the services at Pungo Hospital. Lindsey is passionate about speaking up for the lives of those that will certainly die without Medicaid or insurance. That is why she is organizing, with the help of others (including you), a nationally coordinated series of vigils to acknowledge the hurt that comes without the help of Medicaid Expansion or good health insurance coverage. Please tune in just after 7pm Eastern to hear Lindsey's story and to get more details about the effort to raise awareness through these vigils. She will have most of the first hour.
Our second guest is already a friend of the show. Pamela John has appeared once before (back in May), sharing many stories submitted by real folks who shared their ACA success stories. Please tune in after 8pm Eastern to hear more about her story and, more importantly, the ACA Success Stories!
With so many lives on the line, this will be an important show. Don't miss it! Let's get the conversation going...
