    Melanie DewBerry: Dark, Dangerous and Beautiful, Engaging our Indigenous Nature

    in Spirituality

    Melanie Dewberry asks the question: What is your indigenous nature?

    She believes that we are all indigenous - to this planet; to each other. She also believes that we are each born with a divine mandate tattooed on our souls; a poem written before the world got its hands on us and labels us.

    We all want to be witnessed; seen for who we really are. This especially resonates with Producer and Host, Linda Lombardo, who calls herself the Camelot era/flower child of two Edwardian/Depression-era parents; better seen than heard; neither seen nor heard when adults got together to play cards or have dinner.

    Her Power of Naming TEDx Talk reminds us that resonance with our name is powerful and starts to tell a story; we do not negotiate our gifts; the world expects something of us when our true name is shared.

    Melanie DewBerry is many things in addition to a kick-ass speaker of TEDx talks; she is a Soul Navigator and brander, a magazine creator and writer, a coach who brings spirituality and her Native American roots to the conversation – even in the corporate world. 

    She is Conversation Curator & Courage Cultivator. Melanie is a Speaker & Coach on Consciousness, Soul and the Love of Life. She is a lover of languages. Melanie is “She who lives with her Soul on Fire”. 

    Melanie uses the power of spirituality, language, words, and naming to remind us all how we belong to one another.

    Linda Lombardo hosts.

    Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine 12/10/15 - Keeping the British End Up

    in Entertainment

    This week on Weird Scenes, we take on the two most important directors in 70's British cinema!

    Think about it: outside of Hammer, Tigon and Amicus (and perhaps short lived wunderkind Michael Reeves), how many British "new look" cult directors of the era can you name?  And yet, Pete Walker and Norman J. Warren have managed to carve themselves something of a conjoined niche unto themselves, outside the larger studios.  

    With their efforts gracing grindhouse theatres and syndicated programming alike throughout the 70's and 80's, their names have become synonymous with concurrent sidelines in sex and horror, often featuring some very well established names in the business!

    Join us as we speak to the dark and gritty (or saucy and bouncy) boundary pushing efforts of Norman J. Warren and Pete Walker!

    Week 18
    Keeping the British End Up - a friendly pint with Norm and Pete

    in Health

    More and more schools and workplaces are adopting wireless internet and computers in every room. When we stop to think about all the EMF radiation from electronics that we come into contact with everyday it's no wonder that our bodies are so stressed. Oh, and as an important side note- when children are stressed, they misbehave, become moody or lose focus. Hmm...

    Signs that you have EMF sensitivity
    Simple ways you can protect yourself inside and outside your home from EMF (including low frequency and high frequency radiation)
    How to effectively use acupuncture patches to relieve stress and sensitivty to EMF, especially in high frequency areas (such as airports and movie theatres).

    Guest: Jason Connors

    in Culture

    Today's guest is Jason Connors, who just returned to the United States on November 8 after serving 27 months in the Peace Corps in the South Pacific island of Tonga.

    Jason is a native San Diegan, who for over 20 years has worked onstage and offstage at local theatres as an actor, playwright, director, composer, sound designer, and musician. He has received awards from San Diego Theatre Critics Circle, KPBS, and San Diego Playbill for his acting and original plays. In 2013, after graduating from UCSD, Jason took a break from theatre and quit his day job as a teacher's aid in a classroom which serves students with developmental disabilities, and joined the Peace Corps with his companion, Emily Merchant. In the Kingdom of Tonga, they worked at a primary school teaching English and collaborating with local counterparts to increase "student-centered"  teaching practices.

    During his time in the Peace Corps, he and Emily helped develop new, easy-to-read English literacy books that were about Tongan life, illustrated by local artists. Jason also started a reading program in the nation's capital at one of the country's only public libraries which saw attendance and library visits quadruple since the program began. Jason's experience in the Peace Corps was an extension of a core belief in the goodness and generosity of all people and his desire to build community: a community of theatre-goers, a community of readers, a community of peaceful and thoughtful humanity.

Meanwhile, in Storybrooke, Hook’s centuries old lust for revenge against Gold puts both of their fates in jeopardy while Emma’s love faces the ultimate test as she tries to convince Hook to turn away from the darkness before she, Mary Margaret, David and Regina embark on a new mission as an unsuspected evil is released.

  • Coaches' Corner Cabaret Series with guest Yvonne Constant

    in Business

    My guest tonight in my Cabaret Series is Yvonne Constant.  Yvonne Constant began her career as a ballet dancer, but because of her comedic flair and charismatic personality, the other dancers urged her to become a musical comedy performer instead.  Yvonne was cast to play multiple roles for the Broadway production of "La Plume de Ma Tante" and won a Tony award. When she did "The Gay Life" with Barbara Cook, Yvonne received a New York Drama Critics Citation as on of the season's Most Promising Actresses.  Yvonne was chosen by Richard Rodgers for a principal role in "No Strings,"  "She had 45 appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson."
    In addition, she has narrated or dubbed over 20 French movies including the much acclaimed, "Parfait", and was also the voice of Simone de Bauvoir.   In 2007, Yvonne was one of the stars in the City Center rival of "Follies" in New York. She received 14 rave reviews for her rendition of "Ah, Paris!"
    Yvonne's memorable one woman show, "Yvonne Constant Sings Yves Montand" was standing room only in theatres and concert halls in New York, Chicago, and Washington D.C.
    In recent years Yvonne has performed in several cabaret venues in the New York Metropolitan area including The Reprise Room, Danny's Skylight Room, The National Arts Club and the critically acclaimed Metropolitan Room where she appears regularly always with constantly updated shows. For many years her shows have been presented by Cabaret Legend Jan Wallman and her music director since 2006 has been the multi faceted Russ Kassoff.  Yvonne is playing the Metropolitan Room the day after this podcast airs live, on November 17, 2015.
