POLITICAL JUNKIES AND FASHIONISTAS THIS ONE’S FOR YOU

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

More than political junkies are mystified by the election of Donald Trump. Who are the people who voted for Donald Trump and why?  The Halli Casser-Jayne Show tackles that question with journalist Brian Alexander author of GLASS HOUSE and also visits with the dynamic first and only American woman ever to fill the coveted position of Editor-in-Chief of Paris Vogue, fashionista Joan Juliet Buck.

Political junkies fashionistaIn 1947, Forbes magazine declared Lancaster, Ohio the epitome of the all-American town. Today it is damaged, discouraged, and fighting for its future. In GLASS HOUSE, THE 1% ECONOMY AND THE SHATTERING OF THE ALL-AMERICAN TOWN, journalist Brian Alexander traveled back to the home of his youth, lived there, and put all that he had learned to show how seeds sown 35 years ago have sprouted to give us Trumpism, inequality, and an eroding national cohesion. Alexander takes us behind the scenes into the desperate lives of many of the town’s residents as they wrestle with heroin, politics, high-interest lenders, low wage jobs, technology, and the new demands of American life. When hope turned to desperation they turned to billionaire, Donald Trump for salvation, one of the master capitalists who were the very culprits who tore their world apart. What were they thinking? Do they already have regrets? Political junkies tune in for an eye-opening conversation.

political junkies fashionistaJoan Juliet Buck, the only child of larger-than-life film producer Jules Buck, was born into a world of make-believe. Her childhood was a whirlwind of famous faces: John Huston, Peter O’Toole, Lauren Bacall, Federico Fellini, Angelica Huston, and many more; ever-changing home addresses: London, Paris, Cannes, Los Angeles; and the unspoken lesson that appearances mattered more than reality. When Joan became the first and only American woman ever to fill the coveted position of Editor-in-Chief of Paris Vogue, she quickly became a force in the cult of fashion and beauty. Joan’s world was the land of illusion. But illusions cannot be sustained indefinitely, and they always come at a cost. In her new book THE PRICE OF ILLUSION Joan offers up a dazzling compulsively readable memoir spanning six decades spent in the creative heart of London, New York, Los Angeles, Milan, Paris, and more. But what is the price of illusion? Tune in to find out.

Politics, fashion, fame, Vogue, Paris, illusion, memoir, Donald Trump, there’s something for everyone on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, March 22. The podcast will be posted at 3 pm ET at Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

Is it a man’s world? Wednesday, March 30, 3 pm ET it’s the Battle of the Sexes, Twenty-first Century style on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when joining Halli at her table is Peabody Award-winning and bestselling author Jack Myers, writer of THE FUTURE OF MEN: MASCULINITY IN THE 21ST CENTURY.

JackMyersBookAs traditional gender roles disappear, many men are confused, conflicted, and challenged. After being told all their lives to “be a man” and “man up,” today’s men are rejecting macho stereotypes, rewiring their emotional lives, and are more actively parenting. But are they also being left behind—a “lean out” generation? And what about women? Jack Myers goes where no man has gone before.

From shifting gender norms where women are generating greater income and more men stay home with the kids, to areas where women are growing in dominance, Meyers explores how the traditional roles of men and women are becoming blurred, and what young men can do to find their place in today’s new world. Myers, founder of MediaVillage.com and author of HOOKED UP: A NEW GENERATION’S SURPRISING TAKE ON S*X, POLITICS, AND SAVING THE WORLD, and several other books, is a recognized cultural visionary, award-winning documentary film producer, and advisor to hundreds of leading corporations on media and technology trends.  He is one of the foremost global experts on the impact of technological advances on culture, society, business, advertising, marketing, and human connections.

Fun, fascinating…a gender-bending conversation on the changing role of men and women in the Twentieth-first Century when author of THE FUTURE OF MEN, Jack Myers visits The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, March 30, 3 pm ET. For more about the show visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.
