Leonard Todd is the author of CAROLINA CLAY, the story of the slave potter known as Dave. Newsweek calls it “a fascinating account.” Publishers Weekly describes it as “a sweeping tale of the South itself.” It was a finalist for The National Award for Arts Writing, and it won the South Carolina Center for the Book Award for Writing. It is published by W. W. Norton.
Born in South Carolina, Leonard was educated at Yale University. He is a former Fulbright Scholar to France. He lived for many years in New York City, where he began his writing career with travel articles, short stories, and novels for young adults. Two of his novels, set in areas of the South that he knew well as a boy, were optioned for film productions.
Author Leonard Todd will be talking with us about the great ceramic artisan known as “Dave,” who lived in South Carolina during the 19th century. He was a potter, a poet, and a slave.
For many years, very few details were known about this enigmatic man. Leonard, however, discovered a startling personal link to him and set out to uncover his story. The prize-winning book, CAROLINA CLAY, is the result.
Leonard now lives with his wife, a poet, in Edgefield, South Carolina, where he recently wrote the book, lyrics, and music for his first theatrical musical, SUNNY DAY, which had its premiere at the Edgefield County Theatre Company.
Leonard has told Dave’s story to audiences at the Smithsonian, at Oxford, on National Public Radio, and today he will be telling it to us.
Please join Miss Catherine as she welcomes T J Leonard to the show.
Swedish country singer/songwriter, TJ Leonard got his first guitar from his grandfather, when he was eight; he taught his grandchild to play Swedish folk music and evergreens. Soon, TJ was introduced to pop and blues through his cousin, who was a little bit older and played in a famous Swedish pop band. At eighteen, TJ became lead singer and guitar player in a dance band. Many genres have passed through TJ’s life: Jazz, hard rock, gospel, soul/r&b, but not until country music came along, did it feel like home. Together with Tex Taylor, he started the band, CHESTNUT, in 2010. Later that year, they released their first single, “110% Country,” followed by the EP, American Dream. CHESTNUT played at most of the country festivals in Sweden and Denmark. In both 2012 and 2013, they were nominated in the Swedish Country Music Championships. In late 2013, TJ decided to release his songs under his own name, TJ Leonard.
“Remember Those Times” is the first single from this Top 100 CMT.com artist’s forthcoming MTS Records’ album release, High On Livin’. The single was released on November 1, 2015. The album is expected by December. www.tjleonardcountry.com

Dr. Leonard Robinson will help you understand in this episode the importance of understanding and living Kingdom ministry.
The Kingdom Institute is the after-Church place where Leaders come to rediscover the Kingdom priniciples that make effective leaders. Dr. Leonard Robinson shares Kingdom truths designed to help leaders be all that God has called them to be. Its not a point of becoming, its a point of being who God has made you to be through the New Birth. Key to these studies is the fact that without the clear, exact knowledge of the Kingdom its impossible to walk in the fullness of all that God has ordained for the Body of Christ and those who are called to serve in leadership roles.
Host Cyrus Webb welcomes recording artist TJ Leonard to #ConversationsLIVE to discuss his love of music and what it's been like to share it with the world. The two will also discuss his new single REMEMBER THOSE TIMES.

If you have questions about money and wealth, financial security and independence, this is one show you won't want to miss.
We are fortunate to have in the studio Bill Leonard, who is Ken's personal go-to money wizard. Bill is a sharp guy and he specializes in helping people optimize and maximze their whole financial picture. Bill has access to the best companies and state of the art products that he uses to help his clients grow their retirement funds faster, protect against losses, take advantage of compounding interest (with high rates of return) and enjoy "living benefits."
Until recently, much of this information was available only to the ultra-wealthy. Bill is also a down to earth guy and happy to work with clients at every level.
Ken and Bill will also talk about the ravages of poor returns, losses, taxes, and inflation; and how they will set you back and ruin your financial plans (if you don't understand how they work against you). This will be informative and provocative because Bill is not afraid to shatter the myths and tell it like it is. What most people think they know about financial planning is wrong and designed to work against them. Arm yourself with the facts and the truth.
This is your opportunity to call in and ask your questions directly to Bill. Some people might think that talking about money and wealth is boring, but we're going to make it fun--especially when it puts more wealth and spending power in your pocket.
If you have questions for Bill, and would like to schedule your Personal Financial Health Check-up, Bill can be contacted via email: email@example.com
