Listen to "Jack Davenport From Americana" on Spreaker. Inspired by the paranoid nail-biters of the '70s and set against the foggy skies and twisty streets of San Francisco, AMERICANA is a tense thriller about facing the consequences of an ugly past. Following a festival run that included being nominated to the "New American Cinema Competition" at the 2016 Seattle International Film Festival and capturing the "Best Feature Film Award at the 2016 Lower East Side Film Festival, Zachary Shedd's feature-length debut, called "tantalizing " by the Moveable Fest and "a superbly confident throwback " by Anthem Magazine will be released on March 28, 2017 to DVD ($14.99) and Digital HD courtesy of Candy Factory Films. Two years after alcoholism and depression drove Avery Wells (David Call, Two Gates of Sleep, Tiny Furniture) from his home and career, the San Francisco film editor finds himself back in the city, sobered up and coerced into finishing a cut of a new film - Americana . Avery relents and takes the job due to his connection to the film's star -- his sister Kate (Kelli Garner, Lars and the Real Girl, The Aviator ) -- and the convincing of the film's producer, Calib Andrews (Jack Davenport, Pirates of the Caribbean, Kingsmen: The Secret Service ). Like Avery, the cut is a mess, but the talented editor can salvage it, all while staying clean and reconnecting with his family. Soon, though, he starts receiving menacing calls from a stranger threatening to reveal his darkest secrets - threats impossible to ignore when his sister is murdered. Grief and shame set in as Avery's suspicion of conspiracy grows and he falls off the wagon. Was her death related to the new film? Or was she killed because of mistakes made in the past? As Avery's abusive behavior continues, he dips deeper into paranoia- spurred on by his lawyer Ben (Peter Coyote, Erin Brockovich ) and brother-in-law Josh (Frank Mosley, Upstream Color ) - and only more questions are raised.

Listen to "Rachel Dolezal In Full Color" on Spreaker. A lot of people have made up their minds about Rachel Doležal. But none of them know her real story. What determines your race? Is it your DNA? The community in which you were raised? The way others see you, or the way you see yourself ? In June 2015, the media “outed” Rachel Doležal as a white woman who had knowingly been “passing” as black. When asked if she were African American during an interview about the hate crimes directed at her and her family, she hesitated before ending the interview and walking away. Some interpreted her reluctance to respond and hasty departure as dishonesty, while others assumed she lacked a reasonable explanation for the almost unprecedented way she identified herself. With In Full Color, Rachel Doležal describes the path that led her from being a child of white evangelical parents to an NAACP chapter president and respected educator and activist who identified as Black. Along the way, she recounts the deep emotional bond she formed with her four adopted Black siblings, the sense of belonging she felt while living in Black communities in Jackson, Mississippi and Washington, D.C., and the experiences she’s had along the way. Her story is nuanced and complex, and in the process of telling it, she forces us to consider race in an entirely new light—not as a biological imperative, but as a function of the experiences we have, the culture we embrace, and, ultimately, the identity we choose.

The film offers an affectionate profile of a comedy giant, capturing the humanity that brought his humor to life and made his comedy a touchstone for a generation. ROBERT KLEIN STILL CAN'T STOP HIS LEG features Robert Klein, Billy Crystal, Bill Maher, Rick Overton, David Steinberg, Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Stewart, Mike Binder, Melanie Roy Friedman, Jay Leno, Fred Willard, Don Rickles, Luci Arnaz, James Burrows, Richard Lewis, Larry Miller, Eric Bogosian, Ray Romano and Michael Fuchs and was directed by Marshall Fine and produced by Marshall Fine and Brennan Vance.

ROBERT KLEIN BIO For more than forty years, Robert Klein has entertained audiences, and he continues to have an acclaimed career in comedy, on Broadway, on television, and in film. 2014 and 2015 have been busy years for Klein. He's appeared on "Madame Secretary" starring Tea Leoni on CBS, "Sharknado 2: The Second One" and "Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!" starring Ian Ziering, on SyFy. Most recently, he guest stars as Laura Diamond's grouchy but loveable father, Leo, on NBC's "The Mysteries of Laura" starring Debra Messing. He is also the subject of a new documentary, "Robert Klein: Still Can't Stop His Leg," for the Weinstein Company, which is scheduled for late 2017. Born in the Bronx, he was a member of the famed “Second City” theatrical troupe in Chicago. He was nominated twice for Grammy Awards for “Best Comedy Album of the Year” for his albums “Child of the Fifties” and “Mind Over Matter.” He received a Tony Award nomination for Best Actor, and won a Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award for his performance in the hit Neil Simon musical, “They’re Playing Our Song.” In 1993, Klein won an Obie and the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Performance by an Actor in Wendy Wasserstein’s, “The Sisters Rosensweig.” In 1975, Klein was the first comedian to appear in a live concert on Home Box Office.

Among dozens of starring and guest-starring roles on television, he co-starred in the hit NBC series, “Sisters,” has a recurring guest-starring role on “Law and Order” and has guest starred on “The Good Wife” and “Royal Pains.” He regularly appeared on talk shows, making more than 100 appearances on “The Tonight Show” and “Late Show with David Letterman.” Currently, he can be seen on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon,” where he is a show favorite. Klein has also appeared in many notable films including, “Hooper,” “The Owl and the Pussycat,” “Primary Colors,” “People I Know,” “Two Weeks Notice,” and “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days,” and “The Back-Up Plan” with Jennifer Lopez. “The Amorous Busboy of Decatur Avenue,” his first book for Simon & Schuster, is an affectionate coming-of-age memoir about growing up in the ‘50s and ‘60s before embarking on a show business career. In it he recounts his journey from an apartment in the Bronx, developing his talent in Chicago and the beginning of his show business stardom. The book is pure Robert Klein: witty, honest, self-questioning and always contagiously funny. Publishers Weekly wrote: "...he unfurls an array of captivating anecdotes, writing with wry wit and honesty."

Listen to "Mitch Albom 20th Anniversary of Tuesdays With Morrie" on Spreaker. In 1995, Mitch Albom would see an interview that would change not only his life, but the lives of millions around the world. It was Ted Koppel’s Nightline conversation with Morris “Morrie” Schwartz, Albom’s favorite and beloved college professor. Morrie had been diagnosed with ALS and was spending his final months talking with others about what it meant to be dying. Moved by the interview, and feeling guilty that he had lost touch for all those years, Albom went to visit his old teacher. That turned into another visit, and another, and every Tuesday Morrie had left in his life. Their wise and loving conversations became the basis for TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE. Albom wrote the small book only to pay Morrie’s medical bills. TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE was published in 1997 with a small initial print run, but the response was overwhelming. Its message of inspiration resounded with readers, launching the memoir to the #1 spot on numerous bestseller lists, where it would remain for years. TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE would be adapted by Oprah Winfrey into an Emmy-winning TV movie (starring Hank Azaria and Jack Lemmon, in one of his final performances), as well as a stage play that has seen hundreds of productions around the world. The book, published in 41 languages, is now a staple in classrooms, universities, and homes. On March 28, 2017, Broadway Books will publish a special 20th Anniversary Edition to commemorate this remarkable milestone. This special edition will include a new afterword from Albom, reflecting back on his relationship with Morrie and the incredible impact the book has had since its original publication. With over 15 million copies sold to-date worldwide, TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE is a true publishing phenomenon. Its enduring success proves that this story is not only touching, but timeless, and with the 20th Anniversary Edition, Albom will share Morrie’s lesson—and two decades of perspective—with a whole new generation of readers.

Listen to "John Oats Change Of Seasons" on Spreaker. John Oates was born at the perfect time, paralleling the birth of rock ‘n roll. Raised in a small Pennsylvania town, he was exposed to folk, blues, soul, and R&B. Meeting and teaming up with Daryl Hall in the late 1960s, they developed a style of music that was uniquely their own but never abandoned their roots. John uncovers the grit and struggle it took to secure a recording contract with the legendary Atlantic Records and chronicles the artistic twists and turns that resulted in a DJ discovering an obscure album track that would become their first hit record.

Relying on his many hand-written journals, he brings to light many fascinating stories spanning his entire life with a journalist’s eye and a poet’s heart. In Change of Seasons, John shares his highs, lows, triumphs, and failures. He takes the reader on a wild ride through all the eras, personalities and music that has shaped him into what he is.

Sam also had a standup residency appearance with his “Naughty Show” at Planet Hollywood’s Sin City Theatre in Las Vegas through the summer of 2016. On stage he’s a force of nature, pacing the stage like a cyclone of funny as he questions authority and the conventions of our society one moment, then earnestly expressing his affinity for bizarre the next. His comedy has no limits – its whatever he’s thinking about, and that’s usually what every- one else is thinking about, even though sometimes we don’t like to admit to it. “I like to think of myself as the little voice in everyone’s head, except I have a microphone and I’m funnier,” Sam says. His new comedy album, The Diabolical, will be released Friday March 17th, available on iTunes.

Listen to "Augustin Fuentes The Creative Spark" on Spreaker. Creativity: it’s the secret of what makes humans special. Agustín Fuentes, professor and Chair of the Department of Anthropology at University of Notre Dame, brings us this optimistic assertion -- that we are defined as a species by our unique capacity for creativity and collaboration. In THE CREATIVE SPARK, a history of human creativity, he weaves together fascinating stories about our ancestors and explores how creativity has propelled the evolutionary development of our bodies, minds, and cultures over millions of years. Join Agustín Fuentes on Tuesday, March 21st, as he discusses: · The history and trajectory of human creativity, from selective foraging and hunting to modern technology. · The unique relationship between humans and dogs, the only domesticated animal that shaped our evolutionary path even as we shaped theirs. · Evidence that men are not inherently more violent and women are not inherently more domestic. · The dark side of human creativity—how social constructs such as race, gender, and nationality incite conflict at levels not seen in other species. · Actionable steps we can take to harness our own creative power when it comes to food, sex, art, science, and more. As Fuentes concludes, to make something lasting and useful today you need to understand the nature of your collaboration with others, what imagination can and can't accomplish, and, finally, just how completely our creativity is responsible for the world we live in. About the Author: Agustín Fuentes is a professor and the chair of Notre Dame’s Department of Anthropology and a National Geographic Explorer. He has contributed to Psychology Today, Huffington Post, Salon.com, and Slate.com. He is the author of Race, Monogamy, and Other Lies They Told You, and winner of the W.W. Howells Book Award. He lives in Indiana.

Listen to "Jason From Emperors and Elephants" on Spreaker. Emperors and Elephants is a hard driving modern heavy rock band based in the suburbs of the Windy City, Chicago Illinois. Formed in early 2010, they quickly gathered great momentum in the Midwest area, and started venturing further outside the region. Area rock stations took hold of E&E and featured the song “Who You Are” in their rotations. Leading the charge was 95.1 WIIL Rock, who took it to the next level with a special E&E on-air acoustic performance requested by listeners. Drawing from their musical heroes of hard and heavy music, each member contributes to the unique vibe and sound of the band, and the end result gives E&E its own identity. Their efforts were noticed immediately and directly led to the signing with Pavement Entertainment. Armed with a collection of newly inspired material, 2014 saw the band release their debut full-length album, “Devil in the Lake” (Pavement Entertainment). The 2014 “Devil in the Lake” Tour brought E&E throughout the country well into 2016, playing countless shows and festivals, masterfully broadening their fan base. Emperors & Elephants became a solid touring machine, with their popularity soaring at every turn. On the evening of August 13th 2016, tragedy struck in Savage, Minnesota. After playing a show, lead guitarist and founding member Jeff Windisch suffered a massive heart-attack and regrettably passed away. The loss of Jeff was devastating. After taking some much needed time to recover and heal, the band decided the best way to honor their friend was to continue on; with the help of long time fan and friend Anthony Modica taking the mantel of lead guitar as a permanent member of Emperors and Elephants. Before Jeff's passing, the band completed work on their highly anticipated follow up album. Titled “Moth”, the album will be released in March of 2017.

Listen to "Dr James Doty Author Of Into The Magic Shop" on Spreaker. You wouldn’t know it from meeting him today, but Dr. James Doty, an extremely successful neurosurgeon, the director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Care (CCARE), and a close, personal friend of the Dalai Lama, grew up poor with an alcoholic, unreliable father and a chronically depressed mother. He had no direction, no one in his family had ever gone to college, and he was on a path to nowhere. But when he was twelve years old, and interested in illusions and magic, he wandered INTO THE MAGIC SHOP: A Neurosurgeon’s Quest to Discover the Mysteries of the Brain and the Secrets of the Heart (Avery, February 14, 2017, Hardcover, eBook) and met Ruth, a woman who saw potential in Jim and taught him how to manifest his greatest desires through a series of techniques and meditative exercises. She already knew what Jim would soon learn: a unique relationship between the brain and the heart could allow one to manifest their greatest desires and lead to incredible success and happiness. Doty was more successful at manifesting his desires than he ever thought possible: he got into college, medical school, became a neurosurgeon and rich as an entrepreneur that, on paper and with his background and grades, made no sense, but in his mind, were the only possible outcomes for his life. But Doty neglected one of the most important lessons from Ruth: keeping his heart open. He had riches and dazzling professional success, but felt empty inside. Suddenly he has a financial setback essentially losing everything except for the stock of one company that had yet to go public. Should he take that stock and give it to the charities he had committed to support when he had “everything” or give it away and be virtually bankrupt? Would this act of charity ruin his life or be the stepping-stone to real success? INTO THE MAGIC SHOP is part memoir, part neuroscience with practical instructions from Ruth included as well. It shows how we can all fundamentally change our lives by changing our brains and opening our hearts and by doing so have real happiness. https://www.spreaker.com/user/arroe/dr-james-doty-author-of-into-the-magic-s

Listen to "Lexa Doig From The Arrangement" on Spreaker. E! has slotted the premiere of its anticipated new scripted series The Arrangement for Sunday, March 5 at 10 PM. The 10-part drama, from Universal Cable Productions and Emmy winning writer/EP Jonathan Abrahams (Mad Men),is a multi-layered sexy Hollywood love story about the darker side of celebrity. Josh Henderson, Christine Evangelista, Lexa Doig and Michael Vartan star. It follows Megan Morrison (Evangelista) who, as she auditions for the role of a lifetime, also lands a Cinderella-esque date with A-list movie star Kyle West (Henderson). But things get complicated when Megan is offered a 10 million dollar marriage contract and is introduced to Kyle’s secretive self-help organization, The Institute of the Higher Mind. While Megan has a mysterious past she is trying to keep hidden, Kyle has secrets of his own. The Arrangement drew a lot of attention at the pilot stage due to some similarities between its plot and Tom Cruise, his ties to Scientology and his relationship with Katie Holmes, leading to the network issuing a statement that the project was not inspired by anyone in particular. The Arrangement pilot was directed by Ken Olin and written by Abrahams, who will serve as executive producer on the series. Jimmy Fox of Main Event Media along with Layla Smith and Gregory Lipstone of All3Media America and director Jonas Pate, will also serve as executive producers.

Listen to "Isaac Lidsky Eyes Wide Open" on Spreaker. In his popular new TED Talk "What reality are you creating for yourself?," former Saved by the Bell teen star-turned-entrepreneur Isaac Lidsky recalls how the sales person he waved to in the store was really a mannequin, and how he reached down to wash his hands and realized it was a urinal and not a sink. He learned of his diagnosis at thirteen: Retinitis Piegmentosa, a degenerative eye disease that would lead to his blindness by age 25. After initially believing his blindness signaled the end of his independence and achievement, Lidsky found other pathways of perception, turning his life around with his Eyes Wide Open philosophy. He graduated from Harvard Law School, worked as a law clerk under the guidance of Sandra Day O’Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and eventually became a highly successful entrepreneur and family man. In his new book EYES WIDE OPEN: Overcoming Obstacles and Recognizing Opportunities in a World That Cant’s See Clearly, Isaac Lidsky probes the many facets of perception, detailing the neuroscience of sight and drawing on his own experience to show how our perception shapes—and often limits—our reality.

Listen to "CJ Box Author Of Vicious Circle" on Spreaker. Dallas Cates has always been trouble. The only member of a malevolent family to make something of himself, Dallas squandered his talent and celebrity as a rodeo champion and landed in state prison after he messed with the wrong girl, Joe Pickett’s daughter April. The conviction was the culmination of a violent altercation that left three Cateses dead and landed Dallas’s manipulative mother in prison. Now, Dallas has been released and he blames Joe for everything. When Joe’s cohort Dave Farkus overhears Dallas and his companions plotting against about the Pickett family, he tries to warn the lawman. It is an act that will lead to Farkus’s brutal slaying in the nearby mountains. Although Dallas is quickly apprehended for the murder, it turns out he inherited his wily mind from his malicious mother and the Pickett family is far from safe. When April’s roommate is attacked and critically wounded by a mysterious woman who seems to have connections to Dallas, it’s obvious that April was the real intended target. With everyone he loves at risk, Joe is nonetheless hamstrung by the law—there is not much he can do without proof that Dallas is out to get them. And by the time he has that proof, it may be too late.

Listen to "Peter Coyote From Americana" on Spreaker. Inspired by the paranoid nail-biters of the '70s and set against the foggy skies and twisty streets of San Francisco, AMERICANA is a tense thriller about facing the consequences of an ugly past. Following a festival run that included being nominated to the "New American Cinema Competition" at the 2016 Seattle International Film Festival and capturing the "Best Feature Film Award at the 2016 Lower East Side Film Festival, Zachary Shedd's feature-length debut, called "tantalizing " by the Moveable Fest and "a superbly confident throwback " by Anthem Magazine will be released on March 28, 2017 to DVD ($14.99) and Digital HD courtesy of Candy Factory Films. Two years after alcoholism and depression drove Avery Wells (David Call, Two Gates of Sleep, Tiny Furniture) from his home and career, the San Francisco film editor finds himself back in the city, sobered up and coerced into finishing a cut of a new film - Americana . Avery relents and takes the job due to his connection to the film's star -- his sister Kate (Kelli Garner, Lars and the Real Girl, The Aviator ) -- and the convincing of the film's producer, Calib Andrews (Jack Davenport, Pirates of the Caribbean, Kingsmen: The Secret Service ). Like Avery, the cut is a mess, but the talented editor can salvage it, all while staying clean and reconnecting with his family. Soon, though, he starts receiving menacing calls from a stranger threatening to reveal his darkest secrets - threats impossible to ignore when his sister is murdered. Grief and shame set in as Avery's suspicion of conspiracy grows and he falls off the wagon. Was her death related to the new film? Or was she killed because of mistakes made in the past? As Avery's abusive behavior continues, he dips deeper into paranoia- spurred on by his lawyer Ben (Peter Coyote, Erin Brockovich ) and brother-in-law Josh (Frank Mosley, Upstream Color ) - and only more questions are raised.

For Riton (Ree-tawn) his love for music put him in record stores endlessly looking for vinyl. Which was pretty odd to the locals. He was only 16.

TICKETS FOR ALL SHOWS GO ON SALE MARCH 3, 2017, VISIT HTTP://LASTWALTZ40TOUR.COM FOR TICKETS AND MORE INFO NEW YORK, N.Y., Feb. 28, 2017 – Due to overwhelming demand on the first leg of The Last Waltz 40 Tour: A Celebration of the 40th Anniversary of The Last Waltz, Blackbird Presents is proud to announce additional tour dates beginning on March 30, 2017 at the Verizon Theatre in Dallas, Texas and running across multiple U.S. cities throughout the month of April. A full list of tour dates and venues is listed below. Tickets for all shows go on sale March 3, 2017 at 10:00 A.M. EST at http://lastwaltz40tour.com The Last Waltz 40 Tour, created by Keith Wortman and led by GRAMMY® Award-winning guitar legend and vocalist Warren Haynes and GRAMMY® Award-winning producer/musician Don Was, has been met with critical praise and warm reception from audiences across the country who have been thrilled night after night by the amazing music of The Band showcased in a unique light. The additional dates will also include Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and GRAMMY® Award-winner Dr. John, Jamey Johnson, Terence Higgins, Danny Louis, an all-star horn section led by Mark Mullins featuring the original horn arrangements of Allen Toussaint, and very special guests Cyril Neville, Dave Malone, and Bob Margolin. Other very special guests to be announced. “You soon knew that [The Band’s] legacy would be well feted. Earplugs were required — for the crowd, not the band,” wrote the Huffington Post in its review of the show at the Orpheum in Boston, Massachusetts. “The roar from the audience, which remained standing throughout the show, eclipsed even the occasional eerily screeching synth segments, and the unworldly bleats often coming out of the horns.” "Whenever you’re doing someone else’s music, you’re paying respect and bringing the deepest parts of your own personality to bear. And you hope for surprises,” says Haynes in an article published by the Philadelphia Inquirer. "These songs – so deeply ingrained in the zeitgeist of who we are in this country – hearing them now is like finding a rare jewel.” "People love these songs and they’ve become a part of the emotional zeitgeist of country. And unlike the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Bob Dylan, the Beach Boys or Pink Floyd songs, there’s nobody that’s playing this stuff for folks. You can’t really go to a concert and hear anyone playing The Band’s songs," says Don Was. “The Last Waltz 40 Tour: A Celebration of the 40th Anniversary of The Last Waltz” is an extension of Blackbird Present’s two-night, sold-out concert event “Last Waltz New Orleans: A Celebration of the 40th Anniversary of The Last Waltz,” which took place during Jazz Fest 2016 at the historic Saenger Theatre. Heralded as one of New Orleans best events during Jazz Fest, the epic event paid tribute to The Band’s milestone final concert with unprecedented performances and an extraordinary lineup of artists. “The last 30 minutes of The Last Waltz @SaengerNOLA was best thing I’ve heard @jazzfest” said Keith Spera, music critic, The New Orleans Advocate. Creator and executive producer Keith Wortman and Blackbird Presents have once again gathered a truly prodigious cast of musicians led by musical director GRAMMY® Award-winning guitar legend and vocalist Warren Haynes (Gov’t Mule, The Allman Brothers Band, The Dead) and GRAMMY® Award-winning producer/musician Don Was, with GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter Dr. John, ACM Award-winning singer/songwriter Jamey Johnson, and legendary funk drummer Terence Higgins (Dirty Dozen Brass Band), along with the original horn arrangements of Allen Toussaint. Legendary promoters Larry Magid, Arny Granat, along with Live Nation and AEG, are the tour promoters.

Listen to "Set It Aside" on Spreaker. I'm amazed by the number of things we set aside. Some like to call it procrastination. I see it as a personal need to rid the mind body and soul of the extra weight of dreams, wishes, desires and needs. And yet we carry an amazing amount of negative vibrations brought on by co-workers, bosses, our children, the neighborhood. We feel it's ok to set aside a positive while keeping a firm grip on an accusation made ten years ago. Set it aside! It takes just as much energy to be positive as it does being negative. The problem is? Most of us don't know how to find our way back to positive. We think it has to arrive on its own time. Not so. Positive energy surrounds your every step. We've just made it too simple to set aside. Because the weight of the negative has you convinced that it has more importance. Set it aside. Document the areas that make you positive. Then get back to it. I write every morning before the sun rises. I feed the deer by 7:20am. If there's negative energy it's carried into the areas that make my positive. Once there... there's no negative. It doesn't hold us prisoner. Set it aside. Locate your positive and live it. Be that person that others point at because they can't believe how positive you are. Now teach them how you have achieved a cleaner way of living.

Listen to "Gene Stone The Trump Survival Guide Part Two" on Spreaker. Available now, THE TRUMP SURVIVAL GUIDE: Everything You Need to Know About Living Through What You Hoped Would Never Happen by Gene Stone (Trade Paperback; $9.99) is the first go-to guide for those who wish to understand—and to stop—Trump’s proposed policies. You may remember author Gene Stone from his 2004 satirical bestseller The Bush Survival Bible. This time, instead of satire, Stone offers a serious call to action for people looking for answers and ways to mobilize following Trump’s victory. The stunning election results rocked an already divided America and left scores of citizens, including the nearly sixty-five million voters who supported Hillary Clinton, feeling bereft and powerless. THE TRUMP SURVIVAL GUIDE offers guidance and concrete solutions they can use to make a difference, showing them how to move from anger and despair to activism. Since we need to be clear about the battles ahead before we can successfully engage, Stone outlines the major social and political issues at stake for America. These include: Civil Rights, the Economy, Education, Energy, Entitlement Programs, the Environment, Immigration, LGBTQ Issues, National Security, Obamacare, Political issues, and Women’s issues. He offers a brief history of each, a refresher on Obama’s policies, and an analysis of what Trump’s administration might do to undermine their existing progress. And most importantly, Stone provides an invaluable guide for fighting back, referring readers to specific organizations, websites, books, and countless other resources they can use to support positive and progressive action. Among Stone’s advice: contact your representatives, sign petitions, deploy social media, stay informed, get involved, educate others, join boycotts, volunteer, donate money, report hate crimes, and make allies. While marches and social media are important forms of protest, concrete actions achieve real change. Positive and reinforcing, THE TRUMP SURVIVAL GUIDE presents the essential information we need to effectively make our voices heard and our power felt.

Listen to "Paul Provenza From Dying Laughing" on Spreaker. Paul Provenza (born July 31, 1957) is a television host and actor, actor on stage, radio panelist, stand-up comedian, filmmaker, and skeptic based in Los Angeles. Provenza was born and grew up in the Pelham Parkway section of the Bronx, New York City, and graduated in 1975 from the Bronx High School of Science. In high school, he started performing stand-up comedy, making his stage debut at age 17 at the original The Improv in Manhattan. He continued performing while attending the University of Pennsylvania, taking a year's leave of absence to study in London at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. While at RADA, he joined a classical repertory theater group, becoming one of few Americans to perform the role of Romeo on the London stage. He graduated in 1979 from the University of Pennsylvania, the year it awarded its first Theatre Arts degree. At Penn, he wrote for the Pennsylvania Punch Bowl and was a cast member of the Mask and Wig Club, where he has returned numerous times to perform in the annual Intercollegiate Comedy Festival. Provenza made his first appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson on March 25, 1983. Additional television work includes hosting a short-lived Nickelodeon TV show from 1988 until 1989 called Kids Court, appearing as Patrick in Empty Nest, and playing Dr. Phil Capra in Season 6 of CBS's Northern Exposure, opposite Teri Polo. While working as a standup comedian and on television, Provenza also found work in theatre. He received critical acclaim for his work on stage, with his performance in the Off-Broadway play Only Kidding! being nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Best Actor and winning the Theater World Award for Best Actor in a Play. He was the stand-up comedian opening act for Diana Ross for three years or more. He was honored with a caricature by the legendary Al Hirschfeld. He also is a frequent panelist on Wait Wait Don't Tell Me on National Public Radio After decades as a stand-up comic and actor, Provenza found a new calling as an interviewer of other stand-ups, culminating in his 2005 directorial debut, The Aristocrats (made with Penn Jillette). At the 2006 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Provenza held a nightly show at the Underbelly, Talk of the Fest. Held at 11pm each night of the festival, the set up was described by Provenza as that of a "green room for the whole festival". Guests included Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park. The show was reprised by Provenza at the 2007 Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal, where guests included Billy Connolly, Eddie Izzard, and members of The Kids in the Hall. In 2010, Showtime picked up the show and on June 12, 2010, The Green Room with Paul Provenza debuted with many of the same festival guest line-ups. In 2011, Provenza began developing a new show called Set List - Stand-Up Without A Net. The show was originally devised by Troy Conrad and features stand-up comedians who are made to improvise their sets based on suggestions they receive. After successful appearances at worldwide comedy festivals including Just For Laughs, the Melbourne Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe, it was picked up for television by UK broadcaster Sky Atlantic. The series included performers Robin Williams, Drew Carey and Frank Skinner and was also broadcast in Australia on ABC2. In May, 2010, Provenza's book, ¡Satiristas!, with photography by Dan Dion was released by Harper-Collins. It features in-depth interviews with Stephen Colbert, Bill Maher, George Carlin, Marc Maron, among others. ABOUT THE STAND-UP COMEDY DOCUMENTARY DYING LAUGHING, IN THEATERS AND ON DEMAND FEBRUARY 24th DYING LAUGHING is a candid look at the complicated and fascinating lives of some of the world’s greatest stand-up comedians. A beautiful, moving, funny and unique feature length documentary on the agony and the ecstasy of making people laugh. A stand-up comedian must be the writer, the director and the star performer - and in stand-up there is no rehearsal, no practice, no safety net as it only works in front of a live audience, with feedback being instantaneous and often brutal. For most people, baring their soul on stage and having an audience “boo” at you would become a life-long trauma, but for stand-up comedians, it’s a nightly challenge. The funny and heartfelt documentary contains original interviews interlaced with personal footage of life on the road – all from a comedian's point of view. Once you take this step behind the curtain, you will never look at these funny folks the same way again. Includes interviews with: Kevin Hart, Jamie Foxx, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Garry Shandling, Sarah Silverman, Cedric The Entertainer, Eddie Izzard, Billy Connolly, Steve Coogan, Mike Epps, Jerry Lewis, DL Hughley, Amy Schumer, Allan Havey, Bob Saget, Bobby Lee, Bonnie McFarlane, Cocoa Brown, Dave Attell, David A. Arnold, Dom Irrera, Emo Philips, Faizon Love, Felipe Esparza, Frank Skinner, George Wallace, Frankie Boyle, George Wallace, Gilbert Gottfried, Grant Cotter, Jason Manford, Jay Phillips, Jeff Joseph, Jim Jefferies, Jo Brand, John Thomson, Keenan Ivory Wayans, Kevin Christy, Kym Whitley, Kira Soltanovich, Kirk Fox, Lee Mack, Neal Brennan, Omid Djalili, Paul Provenza, Rick Overton, Royale Watkins, Russell Peters, Sam Tripoli, Sandra Bernhard, Sean Lock, Stephen K.

Listen to "Paul Luftenegger The Authentic Love" on Spreaker. To get the opportunity to share conversations with other creative minds is a moment of gratefulness. I love listening to their paths come to life. How they've built upon as well as continue to share. But as a producer it occurred to me how much you're missing from the authentic love from the artist. I truly enjoy the post production part of the process of broadcasting. But believe the listener is missing out on the moments of where thought became a moment of inspiration. When you get to sit down and break bread with Paul Luftenegger you can't help but feel the presence of incredible peace. So today I'd like to set aside the sounds of music so you can hear the authentic love from his heart.

Listen to "rBeatz Music Update Zedd On Being Real With Music" on Spreaker. The electronic age has cleared the way for songwriters and producers to make their sound anywhere. That's a luxury right?

Listen to "rBeatz Music Update Chainsmokers Having Fun" on Spreaker. Fans... Followers... Those with a sense of humor... The Chainsmoker's have jumped into the Top Ten again. This time with a song that sounds extremely familiar. That only opens the door for people to make a leap toward the web and have a little fun. Jest... Laughter... The real song on rBeatz Radio that's helped push The Chainsmokers into music history by becoming only the third act ever to land three songs in the Top 10 simultaneously is Something Just Like This. The other two acts to pull off such a stunt were The Beatles and The Bee Gees. Which shocks me. I always thought only bands that start with a B made these kinds of headlines.
