Women Who Have Led Intriguing Lives is the subject of The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Talk Radio for Fine Minds, Wednesday, April 17, 3 pm ET when Halli welcomes three fascinating women of substance: Lizz Winstead, Lila Garrett and Cynthia Helms.
Lizz Winstead is one of the giants of American comedy, a woman who has had an enormous influence on today's popular culture. She dreamed up a new satirical genre on television when she created The Daily Show in 1996. She was a co-founder of the Air America radio network, and gave Rachel Maddow her first national audience. The woman is amazing, as is her book Lizz Free or Die, the paperback edition out May 7th.
From wartime England to Nixon’s America and beyond, Cynthia Helms was witness to some of the seminal moments of our time. She had a front row seat as the wife of Richard M. Helms, the director of intelligence for the United States. Her supporting cast: Nancy and Ronald Reagan, Sandra Day O’Conner, Kay Graham, Pamela Harriman the Shah of Iran, Paul McCartney, her life story chronicled in her candid new memoir, An Intriguing Life.
Lila Garrett, Emmy award-winning writer, director, and producer has lent her prodigious talents to television since her tenure as an interviewer on the early 1960s Johnny Carson–hosted game show Who Do You Trust?. In the years that followed, she has written for such programs as Bewitched, All in the Family, Maude, Get Smart, Diff’rent Strokes, and The Nanny, My Favorite Martian, The Courtship of Eddie’s Father. Barbra Streisand’s political firebrand Katie in the classic film The Way We Were was inspired by the politically-minded Garrett currently the host of the radio program Connect the Dots for the Pacifica Network.
