The CFBC is celebrating an entire year of great reads with Traverse Area District Library!  TADL’s Michele Howard and Matt Wiliford join us to chat about our favorite selections, and introduce the first book to kick off our 2020 season!

My interview with Traverse City Area Public Schools Board Trustee Erica Moon Mohr, following the tumultuous special board of education meeting last Friday.  Moon Mohr joined me to talk her calls for more transparency in the wake of her three page letter to fellow board members that was obtained by local media outlets.  The letter details remarks from a closed meeting where she alleges bullying behavior toward new Superintendent Ann Cardon, and a possible Open Meetings Act violation from Board President Sue Kelly.

Traverse Area District Library’s Betsy Myers and Michele Howard join us to discuss two books, Garth Stein’s “The Art of Racing in the Rain” (now a major motion picture) and Admiral William H. McRaven’s “Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life…And Maybe The World.”

Director Stephen Bennett and former Dept. of Defense Chief Investigator Mark Fallon join us for a discussion of Bennett's disturbing documentary “Eminent Monsters,” which investigates the psychological torture experiments of the 1950’s—the foundation of the "torture manual" for interrogation methods used today. Bennett gives us the history of the sensory deprivation torture methods of psychiatrist Dr. Ewan Cameron, while Fallon shares his expertise in counter-terrorism and his hope for the U.S. Government to reconstruct their current interrogation methods.

There has never been a more requested book in the history of Traverse Area District Library than New York Times Bestselling novel, “Where the Crawdads Sing” by debut novelist, Delia Owens. “Where the Crawdads Sing” is at once an exquisite ode to the natural world, a heartbreaking coming-of-age story, and a surprising tale of possible murder. I'm joined by CFBC members Michele Howard and Matt Wiliford to discuss!

Bill Marsh, Jr. returns to finish the conversation on the ways in which you can make better decisions, discussing Short Term Emotion and the perils of Overconfidence.

Traverse Area District Library’s Michele Howard and Matt Wiliford join us for a discussion of this month’s book club entry, the story of four siblings who are told exactly when they’re going to die.

Bill Marsh, Jr., joins Colleen Wares to talk about two easy ways to make better decisions.

Bill Marsh, Jr., joins us for the next installment in his “Making You Matter” series, this time discussing finding “The Discipline to Start” making the changes, big and small, you’d like to see in yourself.

In this month’s talk with Bill Marsh, Jr. of "Making You Matter," we discuss how to determine if you’re really growing as a person, how you define your identity, the “fallacy of experience,” mindset and more.

Bill Marsh, Jr., of the Bill Marsh Auto Group and the “Making You Matter” blog, joins us for a fascinating conversation about how to make your 2019 your best yet with practical, thoughtful tactics.

As a Benzie County girl, I cannot tell you how delighted I was to talk with Jimmy Frederick, new co-owner of the Dairy King, a Beulah institution since 1950. Jimmy and company reopened and revitalized a piece of my childhood, and will ensure that area folks have cool treats to get them through the hot summer days of Northern Michigan.

Absolutely LOVED this chat with Nicole Ball of Mental Wellness Counseling. We talked about the importance of finding a therapist that’s right for you and your needs, as well as some of the reasons and excuses people make about why they think therapy isn't for them. TL;DR = therapy is for anyone and everyone!
