A Lively Tour Through the Dark Side of the Natural World


Dan Riskin, PhD.

Host of Animal Planet's

"Monsters Within Us"


dan riskin 

Snails that can fatally poison you within 5 minutes, plants that can paralyze, parasites that can live inside you for 30 years....Mother Nature can be dangerous, disturbing and deadly! Evolutionary Biologist Dan Riskin, who Hosts television's only hour-long daily science show, "Daily Planet" and Animal Planet's popular TV Show "Monsters Inside Me", has been fascinated with the dark side of Nature since childhood. For Dan, sliding through guano to visit Vampire Bats in a Costa Rican cave was one of the most exhilarating moments of his life. Using the 7 Deadly Sins as a roadmap, Riskin explains that DNA in plants and animals orchestrates violent and "immoral" behaviors that allow them to survive and thrive. He contends that human DNA does too, but he believes we're more than "meat puppets" and our inherent selfishness can and must be overcome for the sake of a better world.

A Novel



James Lee Burke

James lee_burke


In this, his 34th novel, the Edgar-winning Mystery Writers of America Grand Master, James Lee Burke, makes his 3rd visit to The BookRadio Show to talk about the sweeping family saga that took him a half-century to experience. In "Wayfaring Stranger", Burke steps away from his best-selling Dave Robicheaux series to tell a story based on his cousin, a decorated veteran of World War Two whom Burke says is the greatest man he's ever known. With a rich sense of history ranging from the 1930's Dust Bowl and a chance encounter with bank robbers Bonnie and Clyde, through World War Two, the post-war Louisiana-Texas Oil boom and the glory days of Hollywood, "Wayfaring Stranger" tells the story of Weldon Holland, grandson of Lawman and rancher Hackberry Holland and his struggle to succeed in love and life against evil forces that threaten to destroy all he's achieved.

Brian Alexander 

In their book "The Chemistry Between Us", noted Emory University Neuroscience Professor Larry Young and Award-winning Journalist and Author Brian Alexander explain that love is a drug and we're all addicted! Using the latest research in Social Neuroscience, they reveal that hormones are only part of equation. Love, sex and the Science of Attraction also involves our neural connections...the brain circuitry that links rewards to sex, bonds a mother to her child, and creates monogamous relationships that make us want to leave the Cocktail Lounge, steal away with our Sweetie to that rose-covered cottage, lock the door and throw away the key!
