"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."

As our world becomes smaller, awareness of cultural collisions become larger. East versus West, Wall Street versus Main Street, Black versus White...we're all aware of these, but what of the more subtle cultural differences we have to navigate like Male versus Female, Coastal versus Midwestern, Corporate versus Non-profit? Kari talks with Cultural Psychologist Alana Conner about the Cultural Cycle and our Independent versus Interdependent selves. Get the latest findings in social science on how best to bridge culture clashes and thrive.

A Novel


Jenny Offill

jenny offill


This is a searing portrait of an ultimately enduring marriage between a wife who really wanted to become an "art monster" and a husband she describes as "famously kind". He loves but eventually betrays her to make life "easier". Their love story, and the family they create with a precocious daughter, begins with so much skepticism, they post the return address on their love letters to the "Department of Speculation". An exploration of loneliness, fierce love and forgiveness, their story is told in fragmented phrases can be devoured in a single sitting but will leave you with insights that will linger long after the final page.

Why Failing Well Is the Key to Success


Megan McArdle

megan mcardle


No one escapes failure. Whether personal or professional, failure is a universal experience and it hurts. But why do some people and companies emerge from setbacks in a much better place while others take years, if ever, to recuperate? Kari talks with "Bloomberg View" Columnist and premiere Author Megan McArdle, who contends that failure is a necessary ingredient of success. Can you imagine what would have happened if Lincoln or Edison had given up after repeated failures? McArdle draws on personal experience, the latest research and stories of high achievers who learned from their failures to present a fresh way of looking at life and work.
