Well, finally it is spring. I don't know about you but this is exciting news to me. Here I talk about hope and enjoyment.

Are you wondering about America's buying power before the pandemic vs during the pandemic? I've been wondering so I've done some research about how we all spend our time and money. Is it rational?

It's very telling to see what exactly we were purchasing and what exactly we are now purchasing. What were our personal favorites before Covid-19? Has it changed drastically during Covid-19?

There is no doubt that we have ...

Times Square in New York City is bustling and crowded. Or at the very least, we all hope it will be that way soon again. But back in the late 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s Times Square was a scary and sleazy drug and, prostitute hang-out. Full of X-rated movies and plenty of trouble. If you wanted to go there, you were advised to go there at your own risk.

Until one day a group of city officials (Governors, Mayors, and Police Commissione...

In this episode, I give you a tale of my very own.

When I was 13 years old there was a senior at my boarding school named Sam. He had everything going for him. Looks, charm, intelligence, humor, AND he had a red Jeep Wrangler. An all-around genuine nice boy.

You know...there is a certain way you can tell that someone has made a difference in your life. A real impact. And so it is for me.

Here's a real tear-jerker for me. The me...

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
