"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 Evolution of Judge and Jury


Morris Hoffman


morris hoffman


What drives our innate need to punish or forgive? It's not learned behavior according to Colorado Trial Judge and Law Professor Morris Hoffman. He tells Kari that Neuroscientists and Psychologists have pinpointed that our desire to punish lawbreakers of every stripe evolved over centuries as we banded together in a cooperative effort to survive and thrive. Eventually, as small groups evolved into larger societies, the moral and legal authority to seek retribution, punish or forgive was codified into what became our present legal systems. Judge Hoffman says that system, with its emphasis on incarceration, doesn't work consistently and he offers suggestions for effective reforms.

Garth Stein

Told through the lens of his great-great Grandson, Trevor, this is the story of the sometimes dark and complex history of Seattle Timber Baron Elijah Riddell and his descendants, a Pacific Northwest family shadowed by a ghostly legacy of greed and deceit that eventually spawns a host of family troubles. It's a story that centers on the relationship between fathers and sons and those who are paying a debt so deep, it impacts 4 generations and includes incest, suicide, murder...and redemption.

The New Art & Science Behind Enhanced Brain Performance


Majid Fotuhi, M.D., PhD.

With Christina Breda Antoniades

majid fotuhi


No matter what your age, you can improve your brain in a matter of weeks to enhance your memory, achieve greater mental clarity, and be more creative. Neurologist and Brain Center Founder Majid Fotuhi says, thanks to the brain's ability to grow new cells and enhanced circuitry, these improvements won't diminish, either. Your brain will actually restore itself to function as it did 5 to 10 years ago. Dr. Fotuhi's 12-week program can help you significantly improve your brain's performance to prevent "senior moments", reduce cognitive decline and the risk of late-life Alzheimer's disease. By walking 2 miles a day and getting at least 6 hours of sleep, you'll reduce the risk of Alzheimer's by 48%!
