As we do every week, newsman Matthew Cooper joins me for our politics segment, PODCAST AMERICA, in which Matt and I slice and dice all things politics. Matthew Cooper is known for his in-depth reporting and analysis from Washington. Mr Cooper has worked for some of America’s most prestigious magazines including Time, Newsweek, The New Republic, National Journal and U.S. News & World Report. He now serves as a contributing editor to Washingtonian magazine. For the record, Cooper also earned national attention during the CIA leak case when he was held in contempt of court and threatened with imprisonment for his refusal to name his sources and to testify before the Grand Jury regarding the Valerie Plame CIA leak investigation, a case that went all the way to the Supreme Court. He has appeared on 60 Minutes,Meet the Press, Hardball, The O’Reilly Factor and This Week with George Stephanopoulos. He has covered Donald Trump extensively, his hard-hitting and insightful profiles of “The Donald” always well-worth the read. Among this week’s topics, the Kavanaugh vote.

Kavanaugh voteWe take a brief respite from politics in our second half-hour when I am joined by James Mustich, the author of 1,000 BOOKS TO READ BEFORE YOU DIE: A LIFE-CHANGING LIST. If as I do, you love books, boy do I have a book to recommend for you today and an interesting conversation when I speak with the book’s author James Mustich, the co-founder of the acclaimed book catalog, A COMMON READER. In his new catalogue of the greatest books of all times, as compulsively readable, entertaining, surprising, and enlightening as the thousand books it recommends, organized A–Z by the author, the selections takes the reader on a rollercoaster of entries: For example, Flora Thompson’s LARK RISE TO CANDLEFORD is followed by Hunters S. Thompson’s FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS and then by the children’s favorite, ELOISE. The result is an unexpectedly revealing juxtaposition of literature packaged in a beautifully designed book, enlivened throughout with extensive illustrations, its compilation of brief, yet informed and thought-provoking essays accompanying each title, giving the reader a sense of the work’s historical and literary context and the reason why the book is on the list. Extensive, intelligent, it’s a lively library in a book in which readers of all ages will find books to add to their personal collections and to-be-read piles. It is the ultimate gift book for bibliophiles, a veritable treasure trove that brings reading back to the center of our cultural conversation.

Kavanaugh vote, accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Brett Kavanaugh, The Senate, the Supreme Court, Roe v. Wade, books and more books, a fascinating show this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted October 3, 3 pm ET at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

 Christine Blasey Ford

Christine Blasey Ford, Brett Kavanaugh, the Kavanaugh vote and a look at RULE MAKERS, RULE BREAKERS and how our classification effects our politics with cultural psychologist and author of the book of the same title, Michele Gelfand, the topics we explore on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com. Also joining me at my table in our weekly politics segment, Podcast America, is journalist Matthew Cooper.

As we do every week, newsman Matthew Cooper will join me for our politics segment, PODCAST AMERICA, in which Matt and I slice and dice all things politics. Matthew Cooper is known for his in-depth reporting and analysis from Washington. Mr Cooper has worked for some of America’s most prestigious magazines including Time, Newsweek, The New Republic, National Journal and U.S. News & World Report. He now serves as a contributing editor to Washingtonian magazine.

He has covered Donald Trump extensively, his hard-hitting and insightful profiles of “The Donald” always well-worth the read.

Christine Blasey FordIn her provocative new book, RULE MAKERS, RULE BREAKERS: HOW TIGHT AND LOOSE CULTURES WIRE OUR WORLD, celebrated cultural psychologist Michele Gelfand shows that much of the diversity in the way we as a people think and act derives from a simple difference—“tight” (rigid social norms) versus “loose” (weak social norms). Sensing threats, tight cultures (whether large nations or small, close-knit groups) insist on social order. Feeling safe, loose cultures promote individual expression—sometimes to excess. Is this the source of America’s great divide and how, for instance, do we apply this theory to opinions on Kavanaugh accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford?

A Distinguished Professor at the University of Maryland, College Park, Gelfand used field, experimental, computational, and neuroscience methods to understand the evolution of culture–as well as its multilevel consequences for human groups. Her work has been cited over 20,000 times and has been featured in the Washington Post, the New York Times, the Boston Globe, National Public Radio, Voice of America, Fox News, NBC News, ABC News, The Economist, among other outlets.

In an era that is more divided than ever, RULE MAKERS, RULE BREAKERS offers a startling new lens through which we can see exactly why others stake out the positions they do, and with that new perspective, reap—for the first time—the benefits other cultures have to offer.

Kavanaugh Accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, Brett Kavanaugh, politics, sexual abuse, the Supreme Court, Roe v. Wade, are you a rule maker or a rule breaker…a fascinating show this week on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, the podcast posted at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

Bob Woodward Fearless.

Here’s something to twirl around your brain besides Bob Woodward FEARLESS: “It’s the great paradox of the digital age — the internet connects us to countless numbers of people and yet we feel more isolated than ever.” Radha Agrawal — is a community force to be reckoned with, the co-Founder, CEO and Chief Community Architect of Daybreaker, the early morning dance and wellness move-ment that currently holds events in 25 cities and over a dozen college campuses around the world with a community of almost half a million people, the successful entrepreneur (Co-Founder THINX, LiveItUp), author, globe trotting speaker, DJ, inventor, and investor.

In her new book BELONG, FIND YOUR PEOPLE, CREATE COMMUNITY & LIVE A MORE CONNECTED LIFE, Agrawal answers the questions for us that she answered for herself at the age of 30: “How the heck do I find my people?” and “How do I create large and meaningful communities in the real world?” Agrawal spent 18 months synthesizing her key methods for community building, peeling back the curtain on exactly what she and her team did (and continues to do) at Daybreaker so that anyone interested in creating their own community could have a blueprint for how to do it. Named by MTV as “one of 8 women who will change the world,” The world is a lonely place, but it doesn’t have to be.
