When Warren Buffett speaks, the media world listens. And when it comes to deal making, not even Donald “I am the Greatest” Trump comes close to Buffett. But when it comes to trend forecasting outside Wall Street, the “Oracle of Omaha” is either far removed from Main Street… or, as a major financial backer and Hillary Clinton supporter, is he shilling for her by demeaning “many Americans,” including us, who have documented an America in serious socioeconomic decline? And an America fanning war flames across the globe?
Listen to Jessica Roff, Program Manager at Catskill Mountainkeeper, in conversation with Alison Rose Levy about the Governor’s recent decision to halt the Spectra pipeline construction through the Indian Point nuclear power plant pending safety studies.

Sheri Winston, a celebrated sexuality teacher, award-winning author and medical professional, returned to the program. She and Dr. Diana discussed getting in the mood. A woman’s desire requires engaging her mind and psyche as much as engorging her body parts. Mindfulness helps reconnect the mind with the body’s sensations. When women learn to connect bodily arousal and emotional pleasure, arousal is increased. Using a vibrator, looking at erotica, masturbating, or fantasizing about a great sexual experience can all help with getting in the mood! Sheri asks an important question: How much pleasure can I experience on the journey? Her website is www.IntimateArtsCenter.com where you will discover more about her sexuality trainings – and her book “Succulent Sex Craft.”
Part I: D. Anthony Evans, Train 2 Live
D. Anthony Evans knows what it takes to face down life’s biggest challenges and beat them. A child of a single mom, he was born with Neurofibromatosis (NF) a rare genetic condition where dangerous tumors grow on nerve tissue. Often benign, they can become malignant, resulting in Malignant Peripheral Nerve Sheath Tumors (MPNST), an aggressive form of cancer. In 2012, D. was diagnosed with MPNST. Nine life-or-death surgeries risking paralysis within eleven months followed as doctors removed 325 tumors, one of them over two pounds. D. was given six months to live. Survival rates are low, but there are those who survive. It has been over four years.

In episode 91 David Crowe interviews Alan Cassels, a Canadian drug policy researcher at the University of Victoria, who has authored several books, and many papers and also television documentaries. He is very interested in the promotion of drugs, particularly what he calls Selling Sickness or Disease Mongering, which happens when a drug companies, and people influenced by them, create a new illness, or promote greater ‘awareness’ of a minor condition, by exaggerating its impact, and the effectiveness of the drugs that you’re likely to be prescribed if you “see your doctor” as illness advertisements always tell you to do.
Alan believes in the power of Evidence Based Medicine, and therefore supports the Cochrane Institute, which is where one of my previous guests, Peter Gotzsche works. While not perfect, it is not so influenced by the pharmaceutical industry, and therefore produces relatively unbiased recommendations.
