"Talking with Kari was like talking with my perfect reader! She asked all the smart questions I was hoping to be asked, and then some I had never dreamed of. We dove straight into the heart of my novel, touched on every character and big idea, and before I could catch my breath, the time was up! And I would have gladly done it all over again."


-Janis Cooke Newman

In fascinating historical detail, Author John Kelly tells us about one of the worst disasters in history –the Great Irish Potato Famine. When Ireland’s mainstay crop is ravaged by a fungus in 1845, the English authorities dither and debate. The devastation eventually kills a million people and forces the migration of two million others. But the Famine doesn’t break the Irish spirit. Many begin again in New York. Kelly shares their story of survival and revival. Today, 50 million Americans, including two U.S. Presidents, proudly claim Irish heritage.

10 years after a feint brush with rock stardom, middle aged musician Drew Silver is divorced, discouraged and discontent. His ex is about to re-marry…and what’s worse, her fiancé is actually a decent guy. Silver’s daughter Casey is college bound...but now, she’s having a “surprise” baby...and then, Silver’s faulty heart puts everything on the line. He decides to forget surgery and make all the wrongs in his life right before he goes. Can he do it? Kari checks in with Best-selling Author Jonathan Tropper to discuss the sometimes laughable, sometimes heart-tugging story of Drew Silver.

Laurence Gonzales

Journalist and Best-selling Author Laurence Gonzales knows about survival. His previous book is entitled “Deep Survival: Who Lives, Who Dies and Why” and, in this latest book, he talks with Kari about trauma’s impact on our brains, even our notion of who we are. You’ll learn why some survive their survival by dealing with its aftermath through desensitization, determination and courage. Gonzales shares riveting stories of people who’ve lived though shark attacks, being eaten alive by a bear, even spending 5 days adrift at sea…with nothing but hope.
