"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."

An Inner History of the New America


(originally podcast on 7/09/13)


George Packer

If you were born in 1960 or thereafter, you've spent your entire adult life experiencing "The Unwinding". So says Award-winning Journalist and Author George Packer. He says unwinding is a process that happens every other generation and this one's been eroding societal, governmental and financial institutions for the past 35 years. Packer tells Kari he doesn't see an end to the Great Recession that began in 2008 anytime soon; in fact, he calls it the Great Depression. This book tells the story of our nation's current unwinding through personal histories – from an auto parts worker in Ohio's Rust Belt to a billionaire in Silicon Valley. It’s a sobering and compelling book that includes revealing biographical sketches of the era's leading public figures.

A coming of age story set in Kokomo, Indiana in the 1980's, "Exotic Music of The Belly Dancer" will make you laugh but it will tug on your heart strings, too. It's the tragi-comic story of Hank Fitzpatrick and the family dynamic that shapes him from bored and bawdy small town teenager to lovelorn 20-something. Kari talks with first-time Author Brian Sweany about Hank, a complex character who's no stranger to bad decisions on the journey to becoming a man.

How do our ideas about sex affect our sex lives? Do we have sexual self-esteem and do we tolerate differences in how other people view sex? Dr. Marty Klein, who's been counseling sexually troubled people for 30 years, says most people yearn to feel unselfconscious about sex...they want to relax and be graceful and passionate. In this guide, Dr. Klein reveals the nuts and bolts "Sexual Intelligence" so lovers can attune to each other to achieve true intimacy.
