She is a 2015-2016 Soros Justice Fellow.

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.

SINGER-SONGWRITER of KEY LARGO, BERTIE HIGGINS

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

bertie higgins key largo album cover

“We had it all, just like Bogie and Bacall,” is the lyric that touched hearts and imaginations and allowed us to sail away to Key Largo. The songwriter? Bertie Higgins, whose Key Largo blew a hole in the U.S. charts when it reached number one in the nation, and went on to become an international hit. For Higgins, it was only the beginning. Wednesday, March 16, 3 pm ET Bertie Higgins joins Halli at her table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. Come sail away.

Like his great, great grandfather, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the German poet who penned “Faust”, Bertie Higgins is a storyteller. Bertie, who once supported himself as a sponge diver, began his career in show business at the age of twelve as a ventriloquist. But music was in his heart and he became drummer for the Tommy Roe band, The Roemans. He toured the world alongside the Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, Tom Jones, Roy Orbison, Manfred Mann, Peter and Gordon, The Dave Clark Five and many more. Tiring of the rigors of the road and yearning to make his own musical statement, Bertie left The Roemans, put down his drumsticks, picked up a guitar and began crafting music and lyrics. The rest, as they say is history.

Trop rock, yacht rock, romance, Key Largo, sail away with Halli and her guest, singer/songwriter, musician Bertie Higgins for an hour of romance and reminiscing on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, March 16, 3 pm ET. For more about the show visit Halli Casser-Jayne.com.
