In 1950, an animated turtle named Bert taught American children to "duck and cover" in case of atomic attack. Comic yet terrifying, Bert's lessons reflected an abiding national concern with civil defense that reached back to the Minutemen, spread nationwide during World War II, and rose and fell with the tensions of the Cold War. 2011, in the Aftermath of 9/11, is America still taking Bert’s advice and “Ducking and Covering?” Are our politicians trading on a cottage industry at the victim’s expense? Is America suffering from a mass case of PTSD? Has America become a nation of wimps? Did bin Laden win? On the tenth anniversary of 9/11, The Halli Casser-Jayne Show will take an honest look at the nation and where it stands ten years after one of America's darkest days. Joining us will be Liz Goutvenier-Reyer whose life was decimated by the events of that fateful day. Also Alix Michel, with a different story to tell.. and many others. Sunday – September 11th 2011 – at 5 pm Eastern – 2 pm Pacific
Sunday, December 7, 8 pm ET The Halli Casser-Jayne Show brings you a conversation with New York Times bestselling author Phillip Margolin, whose brand new mystery WOMEN WITH A GUN has just been released.
Phillip Margolin’s rise to become one of America’s most respected mystery writers was a circuitous root. Margolin, raised in New York City and Levittown, New York graduated from The American University in Washington, D.C. with a Bachelor's Degree in Government. From 1965 to 1967, he was a Peace Corps volunteer in Liberia, West Africa. Following his service in Africa, Margolin attended New York University School of Law. From 1972 until 1996, Margolin was in private practice in Portland, Oregon, specializing in criminal defense at the trial and appellate levels. As an appellate attorney he appeared before the United States Supreme Court, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, the Oregon Supreme Court and the Oregon Court of Appeals. As a trial attorney, he handled all sorts of criminal cases in state and federal court and represented approximately 30 people charged with homicide, including several who faced the death penalty. He was also the first Oregon attorney to use the Battered Women's Syndrome to defend a battered woman accused of murdering her spouse. Then to our great fortune, Phillip Margolin started writing. Eighteen novels later, many of them New York Times bestsellers, winner of the Distinguished Northwest Writer Award, Margolin outdoes himself with his newest contribution to fiction, his haunting WOMEN WITH A GUN.

The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Talk Radio for Fine Minds brings you a conversation with trailblazing journalist Gail Sheehy, the New York Times bestselling author of PASSSAGES who is out with her new autobiography DARING: MY PASSAGES.
Gail Sheehy’s 1976 book PASSAGES had an exciting idea at its core: adulthood is dotted with predictable turning points. Now, after more than 45 years interviewing women and men about their lives, the journalist and best-selling author has turned the lens on herself. Her new memoir, DARING: MY PASSAGES reflects on her career as a trailblazing female journalist in the ’60s, a mother determined to balance work and family, and a caregiver to an ailing husband. Reflecting on desire, ambition, and wanting it all - career, love, children, friends, social significance - and coming to terms with waiting until midlife to achieve it all, Sheehy’s memoir is filled with candor and humor and describes her early failures; the pain of betrayal in a first marriage; her struggles as a single mother; the flings of an ardent, liberated young woman; the vertigo of becoming an internationally bestselling author; her adoption of a second daughter from a refugee camp; the emotional account of her tempestuous relationship with her mentor, her friend, her lover, her husband the founder of New York Magazine Clay Felker, and her ongoing passion for life, work and love. DARING: MY PASSAGES is a testament to guts, resilience, and smarts, and offers a bold perspective on all of life's passages and the daring that’s gotten Gail Sheehy through it all.
