MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL’S CASEY STENGEL + DONALD TRUMP

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

Major League Baseball Casey Stengel Donald Trump

In celebration of spring and Major League Baseball’s opening day, it’s take me out to the ballgame time on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show when joining Halli at her table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show is New York Yankee’s historian and former publicity director Marty Appel, author of  the new biography CASEY STENGEL, BASEBALL’S GREATEST CHARACTER. And in our second half-hour we visit with the fascinating Eden Collinsworth who takes a look at a subject on everyone’s mind today: morality. In what some people are calling The Age of IM-morality, author Eden Collinsworth has written BEHAVING BADLY: THE NEW MORALITY IN POLITICS, SEX, AND BUSINESS.

Casey Stengel once said that “There comes a time in every man’s life, and I’ve had plenty of them,” and indeed he did. There was nobody like Casey before him, and certainly there has been no one like him since. For more than fifty years, Casey Stengel lived baseball. First as the only person in history to play for or manage all the New York teams, including the Dodgers, Giants, Yankees, and Mets, and then as a manager, where he made his biggest mark on the game of Major League Baseball revolutionizing the role in New York and beyond, all while winning an astounding ten pennants and seven World Series Championships – including five consecutive titles with the Yankees.

Major League Baseball Casey Stengel Donald Trump Another New York character is shaking things up in the world and we take a look at Donald Trump with author Eden Collinsworth who addresses the topic of morality in her new book BEHAVING BADLY: THE NEW MORALITY IN POLITICS, SEX, AND BUSINESS. To call these unsettling times is an understatement: our political leaders are less and less respectable; in the realm of business, cheating, lying, and stealing are hazily defined; and in daily life, rapidly changing technology offers permission to act in ways inconceivable without it. Some might say that we live in a time of a complete free-for-all. Eden Collinsworth argues that people still draw lines around what is acceptable and what is not. It’s a fascinating conversation, not all serious. Hear what the founder of Ashley Madison, a web site for married people looking to have illicit affairs has to say on the subject.

A look at two wholly American characters, Casey Stengel and Donald Trump, America’s national pastime, Donald Trump, sports, politics, the New York Yankees Wednesday, April 5, 3 pm ET on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show. For more information visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

Stuck? Bored? Tired of always doing and saying the right thing? We’re shaking things up on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, May 18, 3 pm ET when joining Halli at her table are two women who themselves have taken some chances with their lives: Kayt Sukel author of THE ART OF RISK and Beth Thomas Cohen, author of DROP THE ACT, IT’S EXHAUSTING!

YogaOutlet.com

Inspired by her own “midlife crisis” in which she realized that she, the once enthusiastic risk taker no longer was, author Kate Sukel decided to find out why. The result is her new, fascinating book THE ART OF RISK, THE NEW SCIENCE OF COURAGE, CAUTION, & CHANCE. Sukel who earned a B.S. in cognitive psychology from Carnegie Mellon University and an M.S. in engineering psychology from the Georgia Institute of Technology is also the author of THIS IS YOUR BRAIN ON SEX: THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE SEARCH FOR LOVE. Her work has appeared in Atlantic Monthly, New Scientist, USA Today, and The Washington Post.

Once the woman who prided herself on being perfect in every way, in DROP THE ACT, IT’S EXHAUSTING author, PR guru, and fashionista Beth Thomas Cohen asks women to embrace the imperfections in their lives, and to air their “improper” thoughts about all aspects of their lives. She says that by not being ashamed or apologetic about how we really feel, women will become more aware of who they are and more accepting of themselves and one another.

There is an art to risk taking and there is freedom beyond political correctness. Let’s change it up on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, May 18, 3 pm ET. For more about the show visit Halli Casser-Jayne dot com.

MaiaBook ARevolutionary NewWay...

Former heroin user, Maia Szalavitz, one of the premier American journalists covering addiction and drugs today visits The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, April 13, 3 pm ET to talk about her new, highly-controversial book UNBROKEN BRAIN: A REVOLUTIONARY NEW WAY OF UNDERSTANDING ADDICTION.

YogaOutlet.com

With addiction running rampant in our society, what better time to take a look at the Addiction Movement? Szalavitz who at one point in her storied drug career was shooting up as much as 40 times a day challenges both the idea of the addict’s “broken brain” and the simple notion of an “addictive personality.” The author of HELP AT ANY COST the first book-length expose of the “tough love” business that dominates addiction treatment, her work appears in publications such as Time dot com, the New York Times, Scientific American, Elle, VICE, and New York magazine, among others. She is a 2015-2016 Soros Justice Fellow.

HEROIN AAIs addiction trapped in outdated twentieth-century ideas and in equally antiquated treatment? Are Alcoholic’s Anonymous and other treatment modalities outdated? A conversation about heroin, painkiller overdoses, addictive behavior, legalization of marijuana and treatment, Wednesday, April 13, 3 pm ET with author Maia Szalavitz on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.

IN DEFENSE OF SELFISHNESS & NARCISSISM: PETER SCHWARTZ, DR. CRAIG MALKIN

Dr.MalkinpictureforSelfishessThe authors of two provocative books Peter Schwartz, IN DEFENSE OF SELFISHNESS, WHY THE CODE OF SELF-SACRIFICE IS UNJUST AND DESTRUCTIVE and Dr. Craig Malkin, RETHINKING NARCISSISM, THE BAD AND SURPRISING GOOD ABOUT FEELING SPECIAL join Halli at her table on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Wednesday, August 5, 3 pm ET.

Dr.MalkinBookInDfenseofSelf-ShnessPeter Schwartz is a retired Chairman of the Board of Directors, and currently a Distinguished Fellow of the Ayn Rand Institute. He is the founding editor and publisher of The Intellectual Activist. In his challenging new book IN DEFENSE OF SELFISHNESS, WHY THE CODE OF SELF-SACRIFICE IS UNJUST AND DESTRUCTIVE, Schwartz explores the question: What if altruism is in fact, at the heart of the social conflicts that plague us today?

Dr.MalkinBookcoverIs there a “narcissism epidemic?”  In his eye-opening new book RETHINKING NARCISSISM, THE BAD AND SURPRISING GOOD ABOUT FEELING SPECIAL, Dr. Craig Malkin—author, clinical psychologist, and Instructor of Psychology for Harvard Medical School —offers a radically new model for understanding what he asserts is an often misused term. Narcissism, argues Dr. Malkin, is essentially a spectrum of self-importance— and everyone falls somewhere on the scale between utter selflessness and total arrogance. Currently, Dr. Malkin can be seen on Oprah Winfrey’s OWN network, which is running a series about RETHINKING NARCISSISM.

For the “Me Generation” and “The Millennials” who have been branded “the most narcissistic generation ever,” and those interested in the Libertarian creed authors Peter Schwartz and Dr. Craig Malkin tackle the good and bad of narcissism and selfishness, Wednesday, August 5, 3 pm ET on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.

THAT STATE OF STUCK

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

stuck hi-res52weeksbookSo who among us hasn’t been there wedged…trapped…caught…STUCK? You know, when life becomes a routine and every day is just like the day before? When the color of the sky isn’t quite as blue as you thought it used to be, and the tickle of the sun’s warmth on your skin doesn’t seem quite so magical?

Then one day, or is it over many, you realize that you are, in fact, stuck. Life is running you rather than you running your life. A certain inertia seems to have set in and just getting out of the house is a chore. The mood: apathetic…torpid…lethargic…indifferent…oy.

You know that it is time to shake things up, rattle the brain, roll the mind, but just thinking about change is enough to send you back to bed. Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaawn!

Meet four women who found themselves in the State of Stuck but didn’t take it lying down. Instead they hopped, skipped and jumped themselves out of their doldrums and into a year of discovery.

To some they had it all. Pam Godwin: wife, mom, New York City schoolteacher and then…; Karen Amster-Young: Star public relations specialist, wife, mom, successful writer and then…; Jennifer Gardner Trulson: wife, mom, Harvard Law graduate and then…; Nadia Stieglitz: European-born and raised, wife, mom, creative director in publishing, great life in New York City and then…

Recently, these four fascinating women shared their inspiring stories on The Halli Casser-Jayne Show, Talk Radio for Fine Minds, a fun-filled, honest, insightful, and sometimes, gut-wrenching segment you don’t want to miss. And do pick up a copy of their book, The 52 Weeks. It is chock-full of ideas, expert advice, inspiration, and a host of resources to help you shake, rattle and roll yourselves to a better you, just in time for Spring.
