"Kari Moran did a wonderful interview with me. Many unique questions, and for a change, this interviewer had read my book, "The Cavendon Women". Her charming manner also added a lot to our conversation."
"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."

The Science of Trust &
Why It Matters
Trust is at a low point in American society. Our institutions, the Judicial system, our economy - all have experienced a serious erosion of public trust. Some would argue for good reason! Fascinating state-by-state data shows mistrust is also reflected in our personal lives. For instance, just 5 percent of those surveyed stated they completely trust people of the opposite gender!! States where male-female trust is lowest: Alabama, Nevada, Kansas and Indiana. Highest: Maine, New Hampshire, Utah, Iowa and Nebraska. In "The Leap", best-selling Author Ulrich Boser, a Senior Fellow at the non-partisan Center for American Progress, talks with Kari about the latest scientific findings on why some of us are more trusting than others and how that impacts society. He also offers a "Tool Kit" for policymakers that is packed with trust-building solutions including community building, corporate tax reform, increasing college affordability and much more.

FOR THE END
Winner of the Giller Prize
Inspired by and structured around a famous Chamber piece "Quartet For The End of Time" * by French composer Olivier Messiaen, this is the story of a betrayal and how it impacts the lives of 4 people. In the summer of 1932, The Bond Army riots erupt in Washington, D.C. as thousands of impoverished World War One veterans demand immediate payment of a government Bonus that's not due for payout until 1945. Veteran and dirt-poor Kansas farmer Arthur Sinclair is among the Bond Army occupiers when he's falsely accused of conspiracy and mysteriously disappears. In the ensuing tumultuous years leading up to and throughout WW II, his son Douglas is haunted by his father's absence as are Alden Kelley and his sister, Sutton. Which sibling is responsible for the lie that triggered Sinclair's disappearance that summer and what are the consequences? Time and memory will tell.
* Quartet For The End of Time performed by "Tashi" - RCA

CAN'T DO BOTH”
And Other Noise To
Ignore on Your Way Up
& Nancy Vonk
Poor self-esteem, fear, gender bias, being undervalued and underpaid – these are some of the hurdles women who want to succeed in business need to overcome. It's about more than just "leaning in". Women must begin breaking the largely invisible business rules initiated by "the old boys club". So say "Swim" Leadership Training Lab Co-Founders Janet Kestin and Nancy Vonk. During their 13 year stint at Ogilvy & Mather in Toronto, Canada, the pair rose to the top as Award-winning Chief Creative Officers. In 2012, they were named among Ad Age Magazine's "100 Most Influential Women in Advertising". In their latest book, Janet and Nancy offer women a frank and straight-to-the-point guide to help women rethink the way they work, take risks, expand possibility thinking and advance their careers on their terms. Imagine having your boss tell you that you can’t be the leader of your department and have a child, too. (That's what happened to Nancy!)
