For generations, we have taught our boys the most important trait they can have is to be stoic and unemotional—and traits that do not fit that mold should be suppressed.  In the wake of #metoo, school shootings, bullying, and other toxic behavior, it’s more important than ever to reflect on what we are teaching our boys they need to be.  Put simply, we need to redefine our expectations of them—and nurture all the attributes that make them who they are: the sensitive and the strong, the creative and the silly, the kind and the curious.
Amid a growing national conversation around boyhood, THE HEART OF A BOY: Celebrating the Strength and Spirit of Boyhood (April 2, 2019; Workman Publishing; $18.95) by Kate T. Parker seeks to positively redefine masculinity at a moment when the country is grappling with how to raise boys to become good people. Parker’s 2017 blockbuster bestseller Strong Is the New Pretty struck a chord throughout the nation and beyond. A gorgeous and inspiring photographic celebration of girls being themselves—fearless, silly, wild, stubborn, proud, fierce—it garnered outstanding media attention and support from the Spice Girls, Drew Barrymore, Kate Winslet, Nicole Kidman, and Emma Watson. It challenged the idea of what it means to be feminine and expressed so clearly that beauty comes not from how you look but from being true to yourself. Now, in this stunning new collection, Parker turns her lens to boys. Because when given permission to be themselves, boys will not only grow up to be the truest version of themselves but will grow up to be men who will support and respect girls and women.
Filled with powerful, moving photographs of the many ways there are to be a boy—a boy’s heart is kind, a boy’s heart is independent, a boy’s heart is curious, a boy’s heart is resilient—accompanied by thoughtful quotes from each subject, THE HEART OF A BOY challenges the notion that boys need to be tough and stoic above all else. Rather, they contain multitudes. Meet Mason, age 6, who pronounces “I like to try new things. I believe in myself.” Matias, age 9, who exclaims “It’s not about what you look like, it’s about your heart.” And Ryan, age 7, who says “I want to be president because I am helpful, kind, and nice.”
About the Author

David Browne

<a class="spreaker-player" href="https://www.spreaker.com/episode/17680854" data-resource="episode_id=17680854" data-width="100%" data-height="350px" data-theme="dark" data-playlist="show" data-playlist-continuous="true" data-autoplay="false" data-live-autoplay="false" data-chapters-image="true" data-episode-image-position="right" data-hide-logo="true" data-hide-likes="false" data-hide-comments="false" data-hide-sharing="false" data-hide-download="false" >Listen to "David Browne Releases Crosby Stills Nash And Young" on Spreaker.</a><script async src="https://widget.spreaker.com/widgets.js"></script>



Fifty years ago this May, one of rock & roll's most enduring and contentious brotherhoods began when David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash released their classic album Crosby, Stills & Nash. The trio almost immediately became a quartet when Neil Young joined them, right in time for the historic Woodstock festival that August 1969. That performance, alongside Crosby, Stills & Nash songs like "Wooden Ships" and "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes," announced the arrival of rock & roll's first "supergroup." Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young had been assembled from the remnants of Buffalo Springfield, the Byrds, and the Hollies. But the new sound the four men created-rich in harmony and shot through with social commentary-defined a sensibility and an era.
In time for these 50th anniversaries comes David Browne's CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG: The Wild, Definitive Saga of Rock's Greatest Supergroup (Da Capo Press, an imprint of Hachette Books, 4/2/19). The most up-to-date biography of the legendary band, the book takes readers through five decades of drama and music of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and (sometimes) Young. Using new interviews with David Crosby and Graham Nash and many comrades, including Judy Collins, Mickey Hart of the Grateful Dead, John Sebastian, the Byrds' Roger McGuinn, and the late Pegi Young, David Browne weaves together pivotal moments of CSNY history: the albums both finished and abandoned, the generation-defining performances, the excesses and arrests, the stories behind some of the most influential songs, the dust-ups, and the reunions-both amicable and otherwise. In vivid, novelistic detail, Browne reports on many of their most extraordinary stories: the inside tale of the machinations of how Young came to join the trio; revealing new details on the mayhem of the making of their classic quartet album Déjà vu; Crosby and Nash's (wildly embarrassing) mid-tour softball game against up-and-coming rock star Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band; Stills' many wild tales; new insights into Crosby's dramatic fall from addiction and his shocking resurrection; their interactions with everyone from Jimmy Carter to Donald Trump; and never-before-revealed insights into the making of their 2000 and 2006 reunion tours.
The sweeping story of rock's longest-running and most dysfunctional musical family, CROSBY, STILLS, NASH & YOUNG is the book classic-rock fans (and those who've discovered their music for the first time) have long awaited: a detailed history of a band whose career successes-amidst personal failures and dramas-came represent how the "free-love" fantasy of the '60s deteriorated into the "Me Decade" excess of the '70s and the survival of the boomer generation well into their seventies.

I Am Somebody’s Child tells the journey of a young African American girl (Angela Fairley) who navigates some 30 foster homes and psychiatric facilities before age 18, and the one woman, Jeanne (Ginnifer Goodwin), with whom she developed a deep bond. After Jeanne’s unsuccessful attempt to adopt Regina due to a racially motivated ruling, their bond is forced apart. Twenty-five years later, Jeanne is finally able to adopt Regina in the same courthouse that denied them previously.
Charismatic Regina Louise is an author, child advocate and motivational speaker. She successfully navigated through more than 30 foster home placements and psychiatric facilities as a ward of the California Juvenile Court system.

If there ever was a time to build an American hemp industry, the time is now.
In Jesse Ventura's Marijuana Manifesto, former Minnesota Governor teamed up with Jen Hobbs to explain why it's time to fully legalize cannabis and end the War on Drugs. Through their research, it became clear that hemp needed its own manifesto. Jen Hobbs takes up this torch in American Hemp.
December of 2018 marked a largely unprecedented victory for cannabis. The 2018 Farm Bill passed and with it hemp became legal. What the federal government listed for decades as a schedule 1 narcotic was finally classified as an agricultural crop, giving great promise to the rise of a new American hemp industry.
Filled with catchall research, American Hempexamines what this new domestic crop can be used for, what makes it a superior product, and what made it illegal in the first place; the book also delves into the many health and medical benefits of the plant. Hobbs weighs in on how hemp can improve existing industries, from farming to energy to 3D printing, plus how it can make a serious impact on climate change by removing toxins from the soil and by decreasing our dependence on plastics and fossil fuels.
American Hemp lays out where we are as a nation on expanding this entirely new (yet ancient) domestic industry while optimistically reasoning that by sowing hemp, we can grow a better future and save the planet in the process.

William Morrow is thrilled to announce the newest novel from New York Times bestselling author Stephanie Evanovich. Like her last bookThe Total Package which Kirkus called a “sweet and charming…romance full of heart,” UNDER THE TABLE (On Sale 4/16) is a funny, modern-day “My Fair Lady” love story about a sharp-witted young woman who makes over her awkward, sheltered catering client with super steamy results!
Zoey Sullivan has left her dead-end marriage in Cleveland and impulsively fled to New York City, moving in with her older sister Ruth, a successful, vivacious professional with a string of eligible bachelors at her beck and call. But despite her sister’s carefree attitude, Zoey's never been able to sign divorce papers and rejoin the dating scene. Instead, she dodges calls from her ex, Derek, and distracts herself by building up her business as a private chef—hiring herself out to cater private dinners, birthday parties and wedding receptions for Manhattan's elite. Pursuing her passion for cooking was never an option when she was married to Derek, but now Zoey's in her element, and relishing her independence.
When Zoey's hired to prepare a private dinner for reclusive millionaire Tristan Malloy, she's immediately charmed by his perfectly equipped white marble kitchen and his impeccable gentlemanly manners. It helps that he's good-looking too. But it's clear that Tristan, who made his fortune as a computer programmer, is shy and unprepared for the big city. Zoey concludes that he needs to get out more . . . and learn how to dress, dance, and find a woman who will appreciate him. Zoey is sure Tristan has all the right ingredients and that she's the right person to turn them into a delectable dish. But Zoey's unprepared for just how well her "my fair lady" makeover works. Tristan is even sexier with a little confidence and the right wardrobe, and slowly but surely, Zoey realizes she may have found her perfect match—but does Tristan know how her feelings have changed? Or is he just grateful for the exciting new world she's ushered him into? And what will happen when Derek comes to town, looking to win her back?
Stephanie Evanovich is a full-fledged Jersey girl who attended the New York Conservatory for the Dramatic Arts, performed with several improv troupes, and acted in a few small-budget movies, all in preparation for the greatest job she ever had: raising her two sons. A full-time writer with a black belt in tae kwon do, Stephanie is the New York Times bestselling author of three novels: Big Girl Panties, The Sweet Spot, and The Total Package. She is available for phone interviews and would love to discuss not only this wonderful novel, but her entire repertoire of bestselling women’s fiction.
Hot, heartfelt, and humorous, UNDER THE TABLE reminds us that love doesn’t always come at first sight, and that sometimes finding your own way through the world starts with helping someone else. Please let me know if you are interested in speaking with Stephanie, and I’d be happy to send you a print galley or e-galley via Edelweiss. I look forward to hearing from you!

Titled after the nickname Fredette has earned from his sizeable fanbase in China, The Lonely Master, is an intimate 75-minute film that shadows him throughout his astronomical 2017-2018 season with the Shanghai Sharks. It also traces the beginnings of his childhood dream to play in the NBA, and the highs and lows of Fredette’s career, from high school basketball star to record shattering NCAA National Player of the Year to the unexpected end of his five years in the NBA and his deep desire to return. It explores the universal theme of what it takes to make a dream come true, what you do when it seems like it won’t, and the choice to never give up. 

The Lonely Master also offers an intimate peek into his upbringing and personal life, including his childhood home, with a contract signed by Jimmer and older brother TJ in 2007 outlining his dream of playing in the NBA, hanging above his bed. The backyard court he grew up playing on, the church building they used to train on weekends and his high school gym are also showcased. Contemporary footage of Jimmer as a new dad weaves throughout his story. 

Jimmer Fredette is an American professional basketball player for the Phoenix Suns. Fredette was the 2011 National Player of the Year in college basketball after ranking as the leading scorer in all of NCAA Division I during his senior season for the BYU Cougars. He was subsequently selected with the tenth overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft, but only played limited minutes across four teams over five NBA seasons. He spent the majority of the 2015–16 season in the NBA Development League, during which he won the All-Star Game MVP. In 2016, he joined the CBA's Shanghai Sharks, and during the 2016–17 CBA season, he led the league in scoring, at 37.6 points per game, counting all phases of the season, and won the CBA International MVP award.

The aura of Led Zeppelin was established almost entirely through its enigmatic guitarist. Now, in JIMMY PAGE: The Definitive Biography (Da Capo Press, an imprint of Hachette Books; OSD: 4/16/19; ISBN: 9780306845383; $30), acclaimed biographer Chris Salewicz penetrates the shadows that surround Page to fully reveal the fascinating man who dwells within the rock legend.
"His is an extraordinary story that has taken him to the very darkest of areas - but always driven by the search for his art," writes Salewicz. "You might not approve of the methods employed to unleash and liberate his creativity; and you can't avoid the impression that Jimmy Page was vain, arrogant, fanatical and power-hungry, and indulged in a scandalous private life...but the demonic caricature of evil is mostly an elaborate myth."
Combining numerous interviews with Page and sustained access to his inner circle, along with pain-staking research, Salewicz covers everything from his birth at the far fringes of London's western suburbs (not exactly "on a full moon" as the myth goes) to his first BBC performance; his rise as a session guitarist and touring with The Yardbirds to stratospheric fame with Led Zeppelin; and through his rock star afterlife. Here Jimmy Page emerges as the most revered and respected of all classic rock artists.

Pod Crashing The Unlucky Seven Dark Spot


<a class="spreaker-player" href="https://www.spreaker.com/episode/17542679" data-resource="episode_id=17542679" data-width="100%" data-height="350px" data-theme="light" data-playlist="show" data-playlist-continuous="true" data-autoplay="false" data-live-autoplay="false" data-chapters-image="true" data-episode-image-position="right" data-hide-logo="true" data-hide-likes="false" data-hide-comments="false" data-hide-sharing="false" data-hide-download="false" data-cover="https://d3wo5wojvuv7l.cloudfront.net/images.spreaker.com/original/4c278bbe2d3a0b0fce221f25b45d0127.jpg">Listen to "Pod-Crashing The Unlucky Seven Dark Spot" on Spreaker.</a><script async src="https://widget.spreaker.com/widgets.js"></script>



I call it The Unlucky Seven Dark Spot…
Seven seems to be the magical number that newcomer podcasters reach before they move onto something a little less time consuming.
The first few shows everybody’s checking out your brand new vibe.  The analytics are popping which makes you feel great about you create. 
By the time you get the gang back together for show number 8, someone’s got a new reason to spoil the season.  They can’t make it because they aren’t feeling it to man I can’t get a babysitter. 
Which I can’t help but believe is the reason why multiple podcasters set aside a Saturday or Tuesday night at 6pm to throw down several shows. 
I’m not saying it’s wrong.  I just know that listening habits can pick up on the tiring of vocals and the lack of fresh ideas.  Especially if you’ve hooked yourself up to a 30 to 60 minute show. 
Nothing creatively injures a podcaster more than those annoying days after you think you killed it but the numbers aren’t proving it. 
So how do you get past The Unlucky Seven Dark Spot?
If you’ve teamed up with others to make your magic work and they decide to be no show, let them know how much it put a dent in your dedication. 
Here’s a better idea.  Whoever is the ruler of the kingdom it’s your show.  Those that post a no show are only guests.  Howard Stern always reminds his team of dedication whack packers and producer of whose name is on the show. 
I get it.  Life gets in the way.  But don’t let the The Unlucky Seven Dark Spot… suck the wind out of your sails. 
Even when you aren’t in the mood to spin your wheels on a fresh set of recording tracks.  Get into that studio and lay out a map.  Don’t wing it man.  Leave that for the Wing Shack with their 8,000 different flavors. 
I do kind of chuckle when other podcasters reach out to me to brag about how they’ve finally made it to 10 shows.  Look, I love you for the endless supply of dreaming while supplying listeners with the unique behavior of the voice. 
Podcasting to me is no different than being the chosen voice over talent to read and authors book.  The phone call rocks your planet.  Page one is still a rush.  Then you realize the book is 235 pages in length.  You can’t stop.  You’ll lose the money. 
Oh speaking of that.  Money.  That five letter word has a huge push on knocking your creative butt off the podcasting path.  A ton of wasted energy and no sponsors again today.  That dull ache of never getting lost time back eats away at your every attempt to do a great show. 
So… You try a new idea.  Oh look!  Your podcast can be heard on iHeart Radio, Spotify and iTunes!  2nd level motivation is a party animal in a box.  You feel like you’re more famous than Mario Lopez.  ESPN who? 
What you don’t realize is now you’ve hot even a bigger problem.  You took your podcast to a biggest platform and they need your content to put their sponsors on.  If you aren’t delivering what happens next?  You’re taking up valuable space on their expression of art. 
I guess the moral of the story is to be ready to sink your teeth into a bison sized burger and expect to swallow wind.
Not a negative!  Be aware of what to expect with high hopes that those who’ve been living this past for years and thousands of shows have the willingness to lean into your game and say, “Winning is a choice.” 
Podcasts that I’ve put on my daily diet include Tony Robbins who does a huge job on interviewing his famous guests in a truly heart felt motivational way.  I’m also digging Conan O’Brien who has honestly had a blast poking fun at the idea of inviting people over to the studio all in the name of wanting to be his friend. 
Trust me, the two of them are using the digital platform to sell their material. 
Maybe that’s what you’re missing from your show.  Sell something.  Make it sound larger than life!  That’s what Wolfman Jack did on that monster of an AM station in Mexico.  He was always selling something!
I’m Arroe and that’s Pod-Crashing

<a class="spreaker-player" href="https://www.spreaker.com/episode/17520549" data-resource="episode_id=17520549" data-width="100%" data-height="350px" data-theme="dark" data-playlist="show" data-playlist-continuous="true" data-autoplay="false" data-live-autoplay="false" data-chapters-image="true" data-episode-image-position="right" data-hide-logo="true" data-hide-likes="false" data-hide-comments="false" data-hide-sharing="false" data-hide-download="false" >Listen to "Maelyn Jarmon From NBC&#39;s The Voice" on Spreaker.</a><script async src="https://widget.spreaker.com/widgets.js"></script>


Maelyn has always loved music, despite facing some challenges. At 2 years old, she had tubes inserted into her ears to treat recurring ear infections. The tubes ultimately damaged her eardrums and left her deaf in her right ear and with only 80% hearing in the left ear. But that didn't stop her. At 13, Maelyn started voice lessons and became heavily involved in musical theater. At 17, she was encouraged to try Broadway and her parents moved with her to New York City to give it a shot. At 21, she stepped away from Broadway and is now focusing on creating original music.

Danny Goldberg

<a class="spreaker-player" href="https://www.spreaker.com/episode/17520376" data-resource="episode_id=17520376" data-width="100%" data-height="350px" data-theme="light" data-playlist="show" data-playlist-continuous="true" data-autoplay="false" data-live-autoplay="false" data-chapters-image="true" data-episode-image-position="right" data-hide-logo="true" data-hide-likes="false" data-hide-comments="false" data-hide-sharing="false" data-hide-download="false" >Listen to "Danny Goldberg Releases Serving The Servant Remembering Curt Cobain" on Spreaker.</a><script async src="https://widget.spreaker.com/widgets.js"></script>


On the twenty-fifth anniversary of Kurt Cobain's death comes a new perspective on one of the most compelling icons of our time. With candor, honesty, and empathy, Danny Goldberg, one of Nirvana's managers from 1990 to 1994, shares his memories of his brief but momentous time with Kurt and the band in SERVING THE SERVANT: Remembering Kurt Cobain (Ecco; On sale April 2, 2019; $28.99, 304 pages; ISBN 978-0-06-286150-4). The result is a fresh and frank portrait of an icon unlike any that has come before. When top music manager Danny Goldberg agreed to take on Nirvana, a critically acclaimed new band from the underground music scene in Seattle, he had no idea that the band's leader, Kurt Cobain, would become a pop-culture icon with a legacy arguably at the level of that of John Lennon, Michael Jackson, or Elvis Presley. Danny worked with Kurt from 1990 to 1994, the most impactful period of Kurt's life. This key time saw the stratospheric success of Nevermind, which turned Nirvana into the most successful rock band in the world and made punk and grunge household terms; Kurt's meeting and marriage to the brilliant but mercurial Courtney Love and their relationship that became a lightning rod for critics; the birth of their daughter, Frances Bean; and, finally, Kurt's public struggles with addiction, which ended in a devastating suicide that would alter the course of rock history. Throughout, Danny stood by Kurt's side as manager, and close friend.
Drawing on Goldberg's own memories of Kurt, files that previously have not been made public, and interviews with, among others, Kurt's close family (including Courtney Love), friends, and former bandmates (including Krist Novoselic), SERVING THE SERVANT sheds an entirely new light on these critical years. Casting aside the common obsession with the angst and depression that seemingly drove Kurt, SERVING THE SERVANT is an exploration of his brilliance in every aspect of rock and roll, his compassion, his ambition, and the legacy he wrought-one that has lasted decades longer than his career did. Danny Goldberg also explores what it is about Kurt Cobain that still resonates today, even with a generation who wasn't alive until after Kurt's death.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and bestselling author of Dave Barry Turns 40 now shows how to age gracefully, taking cues from his beloved and highly intelligent dog, Lucy.
Faced with the obstacles and challenges of life after middle age, Dave Barry turns to his best dog, Lucy, to learn how to live his best life. From "Make New Friends" (an unfortunate fail when he can't overcome his dislike for mankind) to "Don't Stop Having Fun" (validating his longtime membership in a marching unit that performs in parades-and even Obama's inauguration), Dave navigates his later years with good humor and grace. Lucy teaches Dave how to live in the present, how to let go of daily grievances, and how to feel good in your own skin. The lessons are drawn from Dave's routine humiliations and stream-of-consciousness accounts of the absurdities of daily life, which will leave you heaving with laughter and recognition.
Laugh-out-loud hilarious, whether he's trying to "Pay Attention to the People You Love" (even when your brain is not listening) or deciding to "Let Go of Your Anger," Dave Barry's Lessons From Lucy is a witty and wise guide to joyous living.
"Lessons from Lucy is extremely funny (in a couple of places I laughed until water ran from my eyes and a slightly thicker fluid came from my nose). You'd expect that from Dave Barry. What you might not expect is how insightful it is, and downright touching. If you've grown old along with Dave, you will want to read this book. You'll also want to read it if you're a dog lover, but that's optional. These are very lively life lessons even for the canine-impaired." - Stephen King
"Astute advice about growing older rolled into a blanket of classic Barry humor.... The lessons are filled with the author's signature brand of quirky, sometimes-sarcastic humor.... Even for those who are not as enamored by dogs as the author, his gentle wisdom seeps through." - Kirkus Reviews
"Barry's signature sarcasm and dry wit is on display throughout.... An effortless reading experience for dog lovers and Barry fans alike." - Publishers Weekly
"Dog lovers will howl with laughter at humorist Dave Barry's advice book on living your best life by following the examples of his sweet senior rescue dog."- Dogster

Eric O'Neill


<a class="spreaker-player" href="https://www.spreaker.com/episode/17474970" data-resource="episode_id=17474970" data-width="100%" data-height="350px" data-theme="dark" data-playlist="show" data-playlist-continuous="true" data-autoplay="false" data-live-autoplay="false" data-chapters-image="true" data-episode-image-position="right" data-hide-logo="true" data-hide-likes="false" data-hide-comments="false" data-hide-sharing="false" data-hide-download="false" >Listen to "Eric O Niell Releases Gray Day" on Spreaker.</a><script async src="https://widget.spreaker.com/widgets.js"></script>


"The spy is always in the worst possible place." This was the first lesson Eric O'Neill would be taught by his supervisor, veteran agent Robert Hanssen, when he began working at the FBI's newly created Information Assurance Section; he called it "Hanssen's law." It was early 2001, the world on the cusp of the digital revolution, and this two-man division was tasked with modernizing the FBI's woefully out-of-date and inadequate cybersecurity system-or so it seemed. In reality, O'Neill knew just how true "Hanssen's law" really was: his new boss was a spy, and he was most definitely in the worst possible place, with unhindered access to some of the FBI's most classified and highly sensitive intelligence. The agency suspected that Hanssen had spent the past twenty years acting as a Russian mole, sharing everything from details about U.S. weapons systems to the names and identities of American operatives. At twenty-six years old, O'Neill was recruited for the case of a lifetime, tasked with spying on a master spy and bringing to justice one of the most damaging double agents in American history.
In GRAY DAY: My Undercover Mission to Expose America's First Cyber Spy (Crown; March 26, 2019), O'Neill takes readers into the high-stakes, pressure-packed Room 9930, where he spends each day alone with Hanssen. O'Neill is subjected to Hanssen's over-sized ego and bursts of rage, but also witnesses the brilliant maneuverings and manipulations he has used for years to stay one step ahead of the FBI. Finding O'Neill to be an apt pupil, Hanssen begins to teach him the game of spy craft, exposing the flaws and failures of the agency's systems, which he's been able to exploit for years. What Hanssen could not have anticipated, however, was just how much attention his new student was paying.
In GRAY DAY, O'Neill recounts those fateful months spent with Hanssen in an edge-of-your seat, tension-packed narrative that rivals the greatest spy novels and films. A dramatic tale of spy vs. spy, GRAY DAY is also a cautionary tale that pulls back the curtain on the world of cyber espionage. As recent events have made painfully clear-from the Equifax breach, to the global WannaCry pandemic, to the hacking of the 2016 U.S. presidential election-cyber espionage is one of the greatest threats we face when it comes to national, corporate, and personal security. In GRAY DAY, O'Neill shows us what Hanssen's law-"The spy is always in the worst possible place"-can teach us about how to keep our information safe in an increasingly digital world.

Gyth found his musical calling at 15 when he joined the family campfire jam session. At 17, his father booked him a three-hour show at a biker bar where he has been playing gigs ever since. Gyth took his show on the road for a few years and came back a hometown hero after sharing the stage with artists such as Jake Owen and Gary Allen. Gyth hopes "The Voice" will help launch his music career to the next level.

In BLOCKCHAIN: The Next Everything, Williams demystifies blockchain and its numerous applications as it takes the tech world by storm.  I would love to send you a review copy and arrange for an interview with Stephen Williams.  If there is interest, simply reply with a preferred mailing address and/or time & date for the interview.
Using plain English, clever stories and uncomplicated explanations, Williams provides readers with a firm understanding of what blockchain is:
An immutable online, digital ledger for keeping track of any kind of data.
A software that exists as strings of code across multiple computers, phones, and other devices in a distributed manner that makes it both immutable and accessible to all its users.
NOT Bitcoin. Both technologies are commonly associated with one another in the media because blockchain is the software that makes the cryptocurrency possible. However, blockchain also powers such things as Walmart's supply chain; voting platforms; refugee identification; organic food verification; and much, much more.
The next everything. Blockchain will be as revolutionary for our society as the internet was, influencing all aspects of society from politics to business to consumer culture and philanthropy. Blockchain will upend the need for central authorities like banks, Uber, Airbnb, and the government to conduct transactions, potentially giving people from all social strata the power to do business and make cross-continental purchases without a middleman.
BLOCKCHAIN: The Next Everything is an essential book for readers that are curious about the future of technology and its implications for a better world.

Music runs in this family. Their mom was in the church choir, their dad in musical theatre, and their younger brother is in a rock band. In 2010, Megan moved to Nashville to pursue a solo career. She later asked Katey and Ryan to join her and sing harmony on her album, which sparked their interest to become a trio. In 2016, they opened for LeAnn Rimes and toured the U.S. Katey later got married and now lives in Chicago, which makes working as a trio difficult. The Bundys are the first trio to audition for "The Voice" and they are hoping this opportunity will bring the band back together.

Smithsonian Channel’s new documentary film, Europe in Chaos, explores the origins of Brexit and the Migration Crisis, two factors that divided the European nations and plunged them into their biggest political catastrophe since World War II.

The first hour, BREXIT, tells the story of how British Prime Minister David Cameron – who favored remaining in the EU – caved to his party and called a referendum that resulted in Britain withdrawing from the European Union, a decision that shocked the world.

The second hour, MIGRATION CRISIS, shows how European leaders desperately struggled to address one of the century’s greatest humanitarian crises: the influx of hundreds of thousands of refugees arriving in Europe from Syria and North Africa. The crisis exposes a sharp division between East and West, with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and others offering sanctuary while Eastern European countries argue fiercely to send the migrants back.

Speak with Norma Percy, the series producer and Tim Stirzaker, its director, who persuaded many of Europe’s top leaders to reveal extraordinary inside stories for the documentary. These leaders give previously unpublished insights into their negotiations as they struggled to deal with crises that threatened to tear the European Union apart.

Quotes from the documentary:

Francois Hollande, former President of France:
“I said to Angela Merkel, ‘The migrants and refugees keep on coming. It’s an exceptional situation. We need to control the borders.’” 

Donald Tusk, President of the European Council:
“I told David Cameron bluntly, ‘Come on, get real. I know that all Prime Ministers are promising to help you, but believe me the truth is that no-one has an appetite for revolution in Europe only because of your stupid referendum. If you try to force us, to hurry us, you will lose everything.’ And for the first time, I saw something close to fear in his eyes. He finally realized what a challenge he was facing.” 

Nicolas Sarkozy, former President of France:
“This is the problem with the English: they think that alone, they have more influence than by working with Europe. They’re wrong.”

In 1979, Atlanta is turning towards an era of peaceful prosperity following the wounds of segregation and the Civil Rights Movement conflict -- but the city is jolted when two 14-year-old boys go missing and their remains are found a few days later, with one boy shot and the other strangled. The incident begins a horrifying 23 months with a total of 29 African-American children being stolen from their families and killed. Multiple suspicions lead nowhere and decades later, no person has been tried for these murders.

In 1981 police narrow their sights on 23-year-old Wayne Williams, a black man suspected of killing two adults in the Atlanta area. After the longest trial in Georgia’s history, Williams was convicted of the adult murders and sentenced to two consecutive life terms but he was never tried for the murders of the children. The public jumped to place him as the culprit, but was he a scapegoat? Investigation Discovery’s new three-hour special The Atlanta Child Murders explores whether Wayne Williams was truly responsible for these crimes or if something far more sinister was at play in the heart of the South.

Often called “the Voice of Atlanta,” radio host Frank Ski is featured prominently in The Atlanta Child Murders. During his imprisonment, Wayne Williams reached out to Frank to be interviewed – and the interview that followed sparked controversy throughout Atlanta among those who thought Wayne was responsible for the crimes and others who questioned his guilt. Frank can discuss his experience interviewing Wayne Williams and his personal theories on the Atlanta Child Murders.

Captain Dave Marciano

<a class="spreaker-player" href="https://www.spreaker.com/episode/17434844" data-resource="episode_id=17434844" data-width="100%" data-height="350px" data-theme="dark" data-playlist="show" data-playlist-continuous="true" data-autoplay="false" data-live-autoplay="false" data-chapters-image="true" data-episode-image-position="right" data-hide-logo="true" data-hide-likes="false" data-hide-comments="false" data-hide-sharing="false" data-hide-download="true" >Listen to "Dave Marciano From Wicked Tuna Returns For Another Season On Nattional Geo" on Spreaker.</a><script async src="https://widget.spreaker.com/widgets.js"></script>



The son of an insurance man from nearby Beverly, Massachusetts, Dave Marciano started fishing at age 11 and never considered another trade. “I just took to the water,” he says. “I got my first jobs on charter boats in Gloucester as a teenager. After high school, I got into it full time.” Marciano worked for a decade as a crewman in Key West and Gloucester before an employer spotted his obvious talents and “threw him the keys” to captain a boat. “I ran that boat, the Captain Vince II, for three seasons, and we did real well,” he explains. “I saved enough money from my captain’s share that I could buy my own boat.”

In Gloucester, where the waterfront has a memorial to the thousands of local fishermen who have died at sea over the past three centuries, Marciano also holds the distinction of having survived a 2003 shipwreck. “We were pushing the limit, and the weather was a little crappy,” Marciano recalls. They were 18 miles offshore and struggling to get back with thousands of pounds of fish when a plank in the hull gave way. “We sank in 33 minutes,” Marciano recalls as matter-of-factly as a landlubber might recall a fender bender in a parking lot.

“It wasn’t as dangerous of a situation as it sounds, though. We’d had all that Coast Guard training, and we had the pumps and other equipment, and there was another fishing boat a mile away. We wanted to save the boat, but we knew that as long as we didn’t do anything stupid, we weren’t going to die.” His peers, who heard him on the radio during the ordeal, told him they were surprised by his utter aplomb in the midst of such a mishap. “I heard comments like, ‘I woulda been freaking out, but you were as calm as an [expletive] air traffic controller,’” he laughs. “But that’s why you do the training.

Ron Keel Band

<a class="spreaker-player" href="https://www.spreaker.com/episode/17432140" data-resource="episode_id=17432140" data-width="100%" data-height="350px" data-theme="dark" data-playlist="show" data-playlist-continuous="true" data-autoplay="false" data-live-autoplay="false" data-chapters-image="true" data-episode-image-position="right" data-hide-logo="true" data-hide-likes="false" data-hide-comments="false" data-hide-sharing="false" data-hide-download="false" >Listen to "The Ron Keel Band Releases Fight Like A Band" on Spreaker.</a><script async src="https://widget.spreaker.com/widgets.js"></script>



EMP Label Group has released the new Ron Keel Band album FIGHT LIKE A BAND, which hit stores 3/1 via their EMP Outlaw imprint, launched in 2017 to reissue Keel’s solo debut Metal Cowboy. Featuring a full album’s worth of brand-new tracks by Keel and his Sioux Falls based conspirators, as well as Southern tinged re-imaginings of Keel classics.
In addition to a lyric video for the lead track “Road Ready,” released in January, the band is preparing the release of the several singles to Rock radio EMP including “Girls Like Me,” which according to Keel is the “most fun song on the record.” The new single/video will hit airwaves in March.
“Road Ready” - https://youtu.be/BNGVXKHlyNs
Says EMP head of A&R/Operations Thom Hazaert, “Ron Keel is one of the greatest Rock vocalists of our time, and a true Heavy Metal visionary. He defines the ‘Gentleman Outlaw’ in the truest sense, and we’re so proud to have him in the EMP family.”
On Saturday, February 23rd, Ron Keel Band celebrated the release at Grand Falls Casino in Larchwood, Iowa with a free concert and VIP pre-show party. The band is filling the calendar with shows from coast to coast, including KEELFest in Columbus, Ohio May 10th, featuring not only Ron Keel Band, but, the classic KEEL lineup (Marc Ferrari, Bryan Jay, Dwain Miller) and a tribute to Steeler that includes bassist Rik Fox and guitar hero Mitch Perry.
Ron Keel’s 35-year odyssey as an entertainer has taken him from the concrete jungle of arena rock to the dirt roads of country and Southern Rock, and back again. Keel’s legendary major label debut The Right To Rock was produced by KISS’ Gene Simmons, and the band went on to notch three albums on Billboard’s Hot 100.
After selling millions of albums and touring the world as both a metal screamer (Keel, Steeler, and a brief encounter with Black Sabbath) and an outlaw country artist, he has combined those elements into a powerful brand as the Metal Cowboy.
In addition to Keel himself, Ron Keel Band features lead guitarist Dave “DC” Cothern, bassist El Diablo (aka Geno Arce, also a longtime member of Keel and other Ron Keel projects), Jeff “The Rev” Koller on drums and keyboardist Dakota Scott Schmitt (the latter two are both members of the South Dakota Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame). They have been together for four years – starting out as the House Band for Sioux Falls entertainment complex Badlands Pawn. During that era, they toured heavily on their own and with Midwest legends Hairball, and backed up other singers like Paul Stanley, Jack Blades, Kip Winger, Mark Slaughter, Don Dokken, and Stephen Pearcy – and for a 2016 Sioux Falls performance they did a set of covers mixed with Megadeth hits with EMP founder David Ellefson.
Says Ellefson, “I’ve known Ron Keel for many years, obviously there’s deep connections all the way back to the earliest days of Steeler and Megadeth and consider him a great friend. We reconnected a few years back through BADLANDS, even have had the chance to perform together a few times, and what he was doing was a really natural fit for EMP. Before you knew it, we had created EMP Outlaw, and a wonderful new alliance was formed. Ron is truly one of the greats, and it’s such an honor to partner with him to release not only RKB, but his solo Ron Keel material as well.”
Those experiences tightened the band into a well-oiled musical machine and cemented their bond as friends. So, when Badlands Pawn went out of business, they chose to stick together and “fight like a band,” hence the inspiration behind the title track of the new album.
“We’ve been to hell and back together,” Keel confesses. “Everyone in the band sacrificed a lot, leaving their homes, gigs, families and friends to be a part of that. When it folded, this group was too strong to stop, so we renamed it Ron Keel Band and kept doing what we do – kicking ass.” Ron also credits the band and their music with helping him stay strong as his wife Renée battled breast cancer last year. “This album is a monument to our fans and the tough guys in this band…and it’s the most personal musical statement I’ve ever made.”
