Don Winslow

Listen to "Don Winslow The Force" on Spreaker. What makes this book stand out is Winslow’s own connection to the story he tells within the pages of THE FOCE. He explains, “Sometimes I think I’ve been preparing to write this book my whole life.  I’ve known—and know—cops, most of them clean, some of them dirty. For this book, I went out on the streets with NYC cops (who will go unnamed). I went to bars with them, sat in their houses, talked to their families, their wives, ex-wives, their girlfriends. I sat with cops from very high ranks down to probationary patrolmen. And women. I’ve sat down with white cops, black cops, brown cops.  That research informs this novel. I wanted to know what cops do, but, more importantly, I wanted to know how cops think and feel. I’m interested in their actions, but more interested in how what they do and see affects them. I sat with tough, veteran cops with tears streaming down their faces as they told me their stories. This is the book I’ve wanted to write my whole life.”                 THE FORCE is an indictment on corruption in the police force and how that is a trickledown effect from the real criminals—politicians pulling the strings at the highest levels of city government in the Big Apple.  There is a strong non-fiction conversation that can be had around THE FORCE, especially around race and how special detectives, DEA, etc. interact with the communities that they police.   And given the extensive research that Winslow did with New York City police officers on the beat currently, Winslow can speak to real-life issues.                 A searing portrait of a city on the edge and of a heroic but deeply flawed man who stands at the edge of its abyss, THE FORCE is a masterpiece of urban realism. Full of shocking twists leavened by flashes of dark humor, this is a morally complex and riveting dissection of modern American society and the controversial issues confronting us today.   ABOUT THE BOOK: All Denny Malone wants is to be a good cop. The ‘King of Manhattan North’, this highly decorated NYPD detective sergeant is the real leader of ‘Da Force’, an elite special unit given carte blanche to fight gangs, drugs and guns. Malone has served on the front lines for the eighteen years he’s spent on the Job, witnessing the injured, the dead, the victims, the perps. He’s done whatever it took to serve and protect in a city built by ambition and corruption, where no one is clean—including Malone himself. After making the biggest heroin bust in the city’s history, Malone and his close-knit crew have stolen millions of dollars in drugs and cash. Now he’s being squeezed by the Feds and must walk the thin line between betraying his brothers and partners, the Job, his family, and the woman he loves, all while trying to survive as the city teeters on the brink of a racial conflagration that could destroy them all.                 ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  New York Times bestselling author Don Winslow has written 20 novels, including The Kings of Cool, Savages, The Winter of Frankie Machine and the highly-acclaimed epics The Power of the Dog and The Cartel. The son of “a sailor who loved books and a librarian who loved a sailor”, Winslow grew up with a love of stories and storytelling in a small Rhode Island coastal town.  In addition to his novels, Winslow has published numerous short stories in anthologies and magazines such as Esquire, the LA Times Magazine and Playboy.  His columns have appeared in the Huffington Post, CNN Online and other outlets. Winslow is the recipient of the Raymond Chandler Award (Italy), the LA Times Book Prize, the Ian Fleming Silver Dagger (UK), The RBA Literary Prize (Spain) and many other prestigious awards. He lives in California with his wife of thirty-one years.

Kim And Ashley Campbell

Listen to "Kim And Ashley Campbell Adios" on Spreaker. Adiós was recorded at Station West in Nashville following Campbell’s “Goodbye Tour” which he launched after revealing he had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. As Campbell’s wife of 34 years, Kim Campbell, explains in the album’s touching liner notes, “Glen’s abilities to play, sing and remember songs began to rapidly decline after his diagnosis in 2011. A feeling of urgency grew to get him into the studio once again to capture what magic was left. It was now or never.” She concludes, “What you’re hearing when listening to Adiós is the beautiful and loving culmination of friends and family doing their very best for the man who inspired, raised, and entertained them for decades – giving him the chance to say goodbye to his fans, and put an amazing collection of songs onto the record store shelves.” For the Adiós recording session, the Campbell’s turned to Jackson to helm the production, play guitar and help his old friend. In preparation for the recording, Jackson, who joined Campbell’s band in the early ‘70s as an 18-year-old banjo player, laid down some basic tracks and vocals for Campbell to study and practice. Jackson encouraged him every step of the way and although Campbell struggled at times because of his progressing dementia, he was clearly ecstatic about being in the studio. The 12-track collection features songs that Campbell always loved but never got a chance to record, including several from Jimmy Webb, his longtime collaborator behind some of his biggest hits like “Wichita Lineman” “By The Time I Get To Phoenix,” and “Galveston.” In addition to the bittersweet title track, “Adiós,” first popularized by Linda Ronstadt, Campbell also sings Webb’s longing love song “Just Like Always” and country weeper “It Won’t Bring Her Back.” He revisits “Postcard From Paris” with his sons Cal and Shannon and daughter Ashley singing the line, “I wish you were here,” resulting in a powerful and heartfelt message of a family singing together one last time.   Adiós sees Campbell putting his spin on several classic songs including “Don’t Think Twice It’s All Right,” inspired by Jerry Reed’s version of Bob Dylan’s timeless tune and “Everybody’s Talkin’,” a banjo-filled take on Fred Neil’s song that Campbell never recorded but famously performed on the “Sonny & Cher Show” in 1973 with a 19-year-old Carl Jackson. Campbell’s daughter Ashley plays banjo on the song and joins her dad on several tracks on the album. Other songwriters featured include Roger Miller with “Am I All Alone (Or Is It Only Me),” which begins with a home recording of Miller singing the tune at a guitar pull before going into Campbell’s rendition with Vince Gill on harmonies, Dickey Lee’s honky tonk heartbreaker “She Thinks I Still Care” and Jerry Reed’s Johnny Cash hit “A Thing Called Love.” Willie Nelson joins his old pal for a moving duet of Nelson’s 1968 “Funny How Time Slips Away.”   Adiós was a labor of love and a way for Glen Campbell to have one more chance to do what he loves to do and leave a musical gift for fans. Campbell, who turned 81 in April, is in the final stages of Alzheimer’s disease. He lives in Nashville where he is surrounded by his loving family and getting the very best of care.

Marc Ruskin

Listen to "Marc Ruskin The Pretender" on Spreaker. Of all the resources available to law enforcement, the living, breathing undercover operative remains the gold standard. This is true in TV shows and in the real world. In the era of electronic surveillance, undercover work enforces accountability; it prevents mistakes, and of all the men and women in any type of police work, the undercover agents are often the most valuable. In his dramatic debut book, THE PRETENDER: My Life Undercover for the FBI (Thomas Dunne Books, on sale June 6, 2017, $26.99), Marc Ruskin reflects back on his incredible 27-year career with the Bureau, rendering a first-hand account of one fascinating case after another. The FBI has roughly 100 agents working full time undercover in some capacity. Between 1990-2010, Marc Ruskin had the most diverse and notorious case list of all the agents involved. Within the bureau he had the broadest experience, including overseas, including: • La Cosa Nostra • Corporate fraud • Counterfeiting schemes • Narcotics trafficking • Wall Street scams • Public corruption The most amazing aspect of his undercover work is Ruskin’s ability to juggle three or four cases – simultaneously – switching identities on a daily basis. Each morning he had to walk out the door with the correct ID, the correct clothing costume, the correct accessories and the correct frame of mind for that day’s mission. The dangers in this kind of life were extraordinary. Ruskin delves in to how the right undercover agent is selected for each assignment, how a fake identity is manufactured and “backstopped,” and how a long-term “con” is painstakingly assembled. Until THE PRETENDER, no one has ever taken the reader this deep undercover. This is the definitive narrative of undercover operatives – the procedures, the successes, the failures and the changes in the culture of the new FBI.

Preparing For Change

Listen to "Preparing For Change" on Spreaker. You can tell we don't like change. How many people actually carry change in their pocket? I get it! Life changes and money are two different types of change. But are they? When you exchange there's always going to be change. Social Media has opened the window for a lot of people to talk about their changes. I remember when the change of life for middle aged adults was a taboo subject. Now just changing lanes on a busy street is a must see attraction on Facebook. Embracing change is what forces us into growth. If it's not part of your plan then stop talking about needing to change jobs, homes or weight loss programs. By taking your eye off who, what, where, when and how. It allows you to digest the differences that change invites. Evolving through change opens your heart to new adventures.

Honey West

Listen to "Ian And Ted From Honey West" on Spreaker. This odd couple consists of multi-instrumentalist Ian McDonald, a founding member of both King Crimson and Foreigner, and guitarist and lead vocalist Ted Zurkowski, co-founder of New York's celebrated Shakespeare ensemble, Frog & Peach, and a long-time member of the world-famous Actors Studio. Together, this unlikely new songwriting team conjured the album Bad Old World under the banner of their quartet, HONEY WEST. Bad Old World is filled with memorable melodies and clever and sophisticated lyrics served on a bed of guitar-driven rock 'n' roll played by top-shelf musicians, including drummer Steve Holley, whose credits include Paul McCartney & Wings and many others, and McDonald's son, Maxwell McDonald, on bass. The album also boasts a guest appearance by Graham Maby (Joe Jackson, They Might Be Giants) on bass ("Brand New Car," "California," "A Girl Called Life"). While it's a modern sound stamped by Ian McDonald's world-class musicianship and production, it also bears an instant familiarity, thanks to a sonic blueprint recalling such Brit-rock titans as The Move and Mott the Hoople. Representative of the band's distinct sound is Bad Old World's self-deprecating first single, "Dementia," a four-on-the-floor rave-up that melds a driving beat and rampaging guitars with McDonald's signature baritone sax and Zurkowski's unique brand of lyrical mischief. With a cheeky nod to McDonald's British roots, there also is a helping of sly humor that permeates HONEY WEST: Witness the new video containing the hard-charging "Generationless Man," which pays homage to both the visual style of the Beatles' influential film A Hard Day's Night, and the wackiness of fellow countryman Benny Hill. As is usually the case in artistic collaborations, the pairing of McDonald and Zurkowski was the result of fate — and, in this case, proximity as well. "We literally lived across the street from one another in Manhattan," McDonald explains. "I would notice Ted and his wife as they would come and go, walking their dog and whatnot. We ended up speaking and I discovered Ted was in a band." "We simply plugged in, and immediately clicked," adds Zurkowski, picking up the story. "We had a ‘two-guitar thing' right from the get-go. That very rarely happens. We started right in writing songs." Asked why it took decades to find himself in a guitar-propelled band, McDonald reckons: "I guess I had never met the right writing partner before. It took a while to meet somebody who wrote great lyrics. There aren't that many great lyric writers who can sing and play guitar as well. When Ted and I got together, I was really pleased to be able to do that." HONEY WEST — named in honor and celebration of the proto-feminist 1960s cult TV spy series starring the ever-alluring Anne Francis — was already up and running when the two came together. For McDonald, discovering the scope and breadth of Zurkowski's talents was the catalyst for wanting to create a musical partnership. "Ted's lyrics are very smart," says McDonald. "I like smart lyrics, I like smart music. The songs revolve around a more-or-less complete lyric. That's slightly unusual for me, or for the way things are usually done. This has ended up being a really good partnership." As for Ted's transition from Shakespearean actor to rock 'n' roll front man, he couldn't be happier. "Now," he notes, "I don't lose five pounds every show playing Hamlet."

Robert Gleason

Listen to "Robert Gleason And Into The Fire" on Spreaker. For most Americans, their greatest nightmare is of someone setting off a nuclear weapon in one of our major cities. Two possible scenarios that come to mind are setting off a nuke near Washington’s Capitol building during a State of the Union address, or melting down a nuclear power plant ― like Indian Point, a mere 35 miles from New York City ― creating such terror and chaos that 9/11 would pale in comparison. Critics agree that nationally recognized nuclear terrorism expert Robert Gleason’s latest book, And Into the Fire, describes these terrifying scenarios in more factual detail than any other book they have read.   Robert Gleason, bestselling author of End of Days and The Nuclear Terrorist: His Financial Backers and Political Patrons in the US and Abroad, has starred in and hosted a History Channel two-hour special on this very subject and the various scenarios that could take place.  Please watch a seven-minute excerpt from the History Channel Special at: He has been a featured guest discussing nuclear terrorism on national TV and radio shows such as Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs, George Noory's “Coast to Coast AM”, and NPR, along with many others, and spoken numerous times on this subject at Harvard.    Gleason’s latest book dramatizes in great detail how terrorists could steal bomb-grade highly enriched uranium from a country such as Pakistan and smuggle it into the US.  Once in possession of the fissile nuclear bomb-fuel, cobbling together crude would be an amazingly simple procedure.  As Luis Alvarez, the physicist who designed the Hiroshima bomb wrote, “a high school student could build the Hiroshima bomb if he had the bomb-fuel.” Gleason then shows how terrorists can use such crudely built but highly powerful Hiroshima-type bombs to incinerate any major US city.   Advance reviews on And Into the Fire all agree that it is not only a hair-raising thriller, it is arguably the most knowledgeable nuclear terrorism novel of our time.  Byron Dorgan, former US Senator and New York Times bestselling author of Gridlock, has written:  "Gleason writes with undeniable authority on the threat of nuclear terrorism… And Into the Fire, is an eye-opening, hair-raising, up-all-night thriller that should be required reading for all Members of Congress."   With nearly 30 years experience researching the threat of nuclear terrorism and the possibility of nuclear annihilation, Robert Gleason can address topics on national security, foreign policy, current events, politics and what needs to be done to defend our cities and nuclear power plants. Following are suggested questions that could be addressed in an interview:   •          Are nuclear terrorists wreaking havoc in the world today? •          Is nuclear terrorism feasible and realistic? •          Is it true Japan’s new nuclear program is exacerbating the nuclear terrorist threat? And does their nuclear power debacle teach us anything? •          Is Russia’s annexation of Ukrainian Crimea exacerbating the nuclear terrorist threat? •          Is a multi-city nuclear attack on America its worst-case scenario? •          Is nuclear power a nuclear proliferation threat? •          The time is fast approaching when any rogue state that wants nukes will be able to get them. What strategy should the US adopt in a world where it is threatened by anonymous nuclear terrorist attacks? •          Can nuclear terrorism lead to Armageddon? •          Does the Bible predict a nuclear Armageddon? •          Which nation is most likely to sponsor nuclear terrorist strikes? •          Why would nuclear terrorists want to strike the US? •          Why Does the Bible think the world will end?    Robert Gleason is a highly regarded expert on nuclear terrorism. He's spoken on the topic at Harvard four times, and on Sean Hannity’s and Lou Dobbs’s TV shows, PBS, NPR,  George Noory's “Coast to Coast AM”, and many other radio & television programs.  He also hosted and starred in a two-hour History Channel special largely devoted to the subject. He is the author of The Nuclear Terrorist: His Financial Backers and Political Patrons in the US and Abroad, as well as the critically acclaimed End of Days. Gleason lives in New York City, and you can learn more about him and his books at

Neil Wu Becker

Listen to "Neil Wu Becker From A10" on Spreaker. The ‘rise of apps’ in our lives has evolved to the point they now seem part of our DNA – call it “digital DNA” – and many believe it is impossible and physically uncomfortable to live without them. For some, apps have become our “digital oxygen,” on par with eating, drinking and breathing. Even though apps are a huge part of our lives, it’s easy to be careless with how we use them. When people are more concerned about how an app looks or performs rather than thinking about security, our lack of diligence can cause more problems than we think. This is a key issue spotlighted by a global study from A10 Networks, which examines our attitudes, behavior, and experiences involving apps in our lives and their impact on our personal security. Some of the findings are pretty eye-opening, such as: Half of all global respondents consider apps to be as or almost as important as breathing, eating and drinking. In an emergency, if given the choice of only taking one item, more people would grab their smartphone over a safe with important documents, photo albums, or computer. More respondents would rather leave their house unlocked for a whole day than leave their phone unlocked and unattended on a park bench for just one hour. If forced to choose, people would rather have access to apps than access to sunlight in a 24-hour period. In a test of human sensitivity over physical vs. digital vulnerability, twice as many respondents would rather lose their pants in public than their mobile phone carrying key apps. Although many people consider security risks when downloading an unknown app, they take the risk and exhibit less security diligence the longer they use it. Many lack confidence in app developers’ expertise and prioritization of security in building safe apps. Nearly one in five in their 20s have had their identity stolen. Almost one in three been hacked. Apps have certainly become an integral part of daily life. Just how important are apps to you? Technology Expert, Neil Wu Becker is available to discuss: Are apps a basic human necessity? Are apps essentially “digital oxygen?” And are they as important to some as real oxygen? As we embrace more apps, how does our apathy and behavior involving app usage impact our security individually as well as the security of our friends, families, and employers? Is the new digital or online rite of passage getting hacked or one’s identity stolen? Is getting compromised the new ‘digital life crisis’?

Clinton Kelly

Listen to "Clinton Kelly Still Hates Everyone Except You" on Spreaker. Bestselling author and television host Clinton Kelly pens a hilariously candid, deliciously snarky collection of essays about his journey from awkward kid to slightly-less-awkward adult. Clinton Kelly is probably best known for teaching women how to make their butts look smaller. But in I Hate Everyone, Except You, he reveals some heretofore-unknown secrets about himself, like that he’s a finicky connoisseur of 1980s pornography, a disillusioned critic of New Jersey’s premier water parks, and perhaps the world’s least enthused high-school commencement speaker. Whether he’s throwing his baby sister in the air to jumpstart her cheerleading career or heroically rescuing his best friend from death by mud bath, Clinton leaps life’s social hurdles with aplomb. With his signature wit, he shares his unique ability to navigate the stickiest of situations, like deciding whether it’s acceptable to eat chicken wings with a fork on live television (spoiler: it’s not).
