Do you have fond memories of your grandparents – and their life lessons – to share with the world? Cousins Lehman Riley and Paul Dixon did. In 2004, they formed a company to publish a series of children's books titled The Adventures of Papa Lemon’s Little Wanderers, featuring stories about their grandfather and hero, Papa Lemon. Paul Dixon joins us to discuss how he went from a Target toy buyer and Disney toy salesperson to publisher and business collaborator with his cousin Lehman, the author. Info: www.papalemonedu.com


In 2010, Mark Oristano was finishing his weekly volunteer shift at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas when pediatric heart surgeon Dr. Kristine "Dr. G." Guleserian alerted him, "We’re transplanting at 4 today…You might want to come and observe.” Why did she want him there? Mark was writing a book about Dr. G., who segued from a Harvard cum laude degree in Greek classics to become one of the 9 female pediatric surgeons in the U.S. Mark joins us to talk about Surgeon's Story: Inside OR-1 with One of America’s Top Pediatric Heart Surgeons.
