"Kari is a total pro. She put me at ease immediately and asked smart questions. She had clearly read my book with interest and care. Particularly with the dwindling print media devoted to books, the literary world is fortunate to have BookRadio."


-Janice Steinberg

"Wow! I have been blessed to be interviewed thousands of times by leading interviewers from all over the world, but very few have ever read so thoroughly and grasped the essence of my book as beautifully as you have. Your genius in questioning and intelligent grasping of content and meaning was mind blowing."

"It was great to talk with Kari Moran for her BookRadio show and a real privilege to be invited to respond to properly challenging questions which ranged wide and delved deep, posed by someone who'd undertaken a 20:20 inspection of my novel, and to find myself entering into the best kind of book-chat. And, then I started listening to the archive of BookRadio interviews. What a delight!"

-Elanor Dymot

The Surprising Science

That Shows How Being

Near, In, On, or Under

Water Can Make You

Happier, Healthier, More

Connected, and Better

At What You Do


Wallace J. Nichols


wallace j_nichols


Water is the elixir of life and for many of us, being near the ocean, lakeside or down by the river is a powerful lure we simply can't resist. For more than a decade, Marine Biologist Wallace J. Nichols, a California Academy of Sciences Researcher, has been seeking answers to the fundamental question about water: what is it and why are we humans so enthralled by it? In "Blue Mind", Nichols presents cutting-edge neuroscience, evolutionary psychology and compelling personal stories to explain how our brains respond to water. Learn how a "Blue Mind" taps into a cascade of feel-good chemicals that spark creativity, generosity and compassion and compel some to spend millions of dollars to ensure they get that precious ocean view.

A Novel



Kaui Hart Hemmings

kaui hart_hemmings


"The Possibilities" tells the story of 43-year old Sarah St. John, a single mother having a mid-life crisis punctuated by the sudden, terrible loss of her only child -- her son Cully is killed in an avalanche on the mountain he loved in Breckenridge, Colorado. "The Possibilities" reveals secrets and the complexities of loving relationships of all kinds and takes the reader through Sarah's halting, sometimes darkly amusing journey to recover from her loss and deal with her grief. It sends a subtle yet important message: the world of the heart is filled with possibilities and you never know how far you'll go to maintain a connection to someone you love.

The Science and Art of Self-Assurance – What Women Should Know

Encore from 4/21/14


Katty Kay

& Claire Shipman

katty kay_claire_shipman


Did you know that we're actually born with 25 to 50% of our innate ability to express confidence? Whether we're genetically advantaged or not, confidence can and often does trump competence when it comes to professional and personal success! But women aren't buying it. They're holding back, letting over-thinking and perfectionism impede their progress. In their new book, the BBC's Washington Correspondent, Katty Kay, and ABC News' "Good Morning America" contributor, Claire Shipman talk with Kari about the latest scientific findings on how women can build confidence and enjoy authentic success by doing, not just thinking. Want confidence? Act now!
