ADVENTURE TIME ON THE HALLI CASSER-JAYNE SHOW

Written by Halli Casser-Jayne on . Posted in HC-J Blog

Join The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when we go on an adventure into the world of artist Andrew Wyeth and into the Honduran rain forest when two New York Times bestselling authors Christina Baker Kline and Douglas Preston join Halli at her table.

adventure with Douglas Preston The Lost City of the Monkey GodSince the days of conquistador Hernan Cortes, rumors have circulated about an ancient White City of immense wealth hidden in the Honduran interior. Indigenous tribes spoke of ancestors who had fled there to escape the Spanish, warning that anyone who disturbs this sacred city will fall ill and die. In THE LOST CITY OF THE MONKEY GOD: A TRUE STORY Douglas Preston brings us the almost unbelievable, danger-filled narrative about the incredible discovery of the lost city and the life-threatening events that followed when Preston, along with a team of scientists ventured into the jungle on a pioneering journey filled with personal danger, venomous snakes, lethal pathogens and more. What happened to Preston on his return to civilization is even more harrowing than his trip into the rain forest. Preston is also the co-author with Lincoln Child of the famed series of novels featuring FBI agent Pendergast.

Adventure into Andrew WyethWriter Christina Baker Kline is best known for her beloved 2013 novel ORPHAN TRAIN. With more than three million copies in print, it has been published in 40 countries, appeared on the New York Times bestseller list for more than two years — five weeks at #1 new novel. Now she comes to us with the haunting, evocative novel A PIECE OF THE WORLD in which she turns her attention, as she did in ORPHAN TRAIN, to another little-known part of America’s history: the story of Christina Olson, the complex woman and real-life muse Andrew Wyeth portrayed in his 1948 masterpiece Christina’s World.

Adventure, art, books, authors, archaeology, there’s something for everyone on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, March 8. The new podcast will be posted 3 pm ET at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

American Presidents and high noon and the hollywood blacklistIn his new book HIGH NOON: THE HOLLYWOOD BLACKLIST AND THE MAKING OF AN AMERICAN CLASSIC Glenn Frankel explores the making of the western classic starring Gary Cooper and Grace Kelly, during the toxic political climate of the late 1940’s and 1950’s Hollywood Red Scare, the film written by Carl Foreman, a former Communist who intended the film to be a parable about the Hollywood blacklist. In fact, during filming, Foreman was forced to testify before the House Committee on Un-American Activities about his former membership in the Communist Party. Weaving together the stories of some of Hollywood’s most talented writers and producers — Carl Foreman, Stanley Kramer, Fred Zinneman and Cooper himself – HIGH NOON is at once Hollywood history, scholarly insight, and wonderfully dishy — in a word, fascinating.

We return to politics on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, January 25 when joining Halli at her table is journalist Jonathan Chait, author of the brand new book AUDACITY HOW BARACK OBAMA DEFIED HIS CRITICS AND CREATED A LEGACY THAT WILL PREVAIL and Steve Hilton, Prime Minister David Cameron’s former senior adviser author of MORE HUMAN: DESIGNING A WORLD WHERE PEOPLE COME FIRST.

Jonathan Chait writes about politics and more as a columnist for New York magazine. Previously a senior editor at the New Republic he has also written for the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and The Atlantic. He has been featured throughout the media, including appearances on NPR, MSNBC, Fox News, CNN, HBO, The Colbert Report, Talk of the Nation, C-Span, Hardball, and on talk radio in every major city in America. In his new book AUDACITY, HOW BARACK OBAMA DEFIED HIS CRITICS AND CREATED A LEGACY THAT WILL PREVAIL, Chait makes the argument that most of Obama’s achievements will not only survive a Trump administration, but also the judgment of time, which will proclaim that Obama was among the greatest and most effective presidents in American history.

politics steve hilton conservatismSteve Hilton has been called many things and one is the Steve Jobs of politics. The T-Shirt clad Hilton is one of UK’s most known political figures. As former Prime Minister Cameron’s senior adviser, he remade the Tory party into a modern, winning conservative party. Now Hilton has his eyes set on America’s political system. In MORE HUMAN: DESIGNING A WORLD WHERE PEOPLE COME FIRST, Hilton posits that government, business, the lives we lead, the food we eat, the way our children are brought up, the way we relate to the natural world around us – it’s all become too big and distant and industrialized — inhuman. It’s time to put people first. Hilton is also the cofounder and CEO of Crowdpac, a Silicon Valley political, non-partisan tech start-up, and teaches at Stanford University.

Politics, liberal, conservative, left, right, Barack Obama, Tories whatever your political flavor, a conversation with Jonathan Chait and Steve Hilton on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. For more information visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
