Feb 01: 1] Dream House 2] Seattle Filmmaker Jen Marlowe ~ PODCAST
Listen to PODCAST -

Lush with sensory detail and emotional complexity, Dream House is about family, home, and an architect’s journey to understand the crippling hold one house has on her. Author Catherine Armsden combines her expertise in architecture with a life-long interest in writing, which got a boost when she was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, as on many days all that was required was to show up at her computer with something to say.

Seattle Filmmaker Jen Marlowe returns today to bring attention to two upcoming important anniversaries that many are not aware of which she memorializes in two projects. There is a Field is a play about Land Day, an annual commemoration of land dispossession and the killings of Palestinian citizens of Israel in 1976, which has it's 40th anniversary on March 30th. Witness Bahrain takes a stunning look at Bahrain's uprising, when hundreds of thousands of Bahrainis took to the streets calling for democracy and human rights in Bahrain--and were met by violent repression from the Bahraini regime, repression which continues until today.

Jan 18: 1] The Retirement Boom 2] Two Percent Solutions for the Planet ~ PODCAST
Listen to PODCAST -

Billy Crystal, Actor, Comedian, and Grandfather states "For anyone thinking of retiring and changing his or her life—this is the book for you." The Retirement Boom: An All-Inclusive Guide to Money, Life, and Health in Your Next Chapter shows how retirement does not mean an end... rather it's a reinvention or reshaping of where your life is going from that point forward. Co-author Nancy Bearg shares her thoughts today on how to make the transition from the daily grind.

The environmental problems we face today are significant. So it's somewhat natural to assume that the solutions that will have an impact on those problems must themselves be significant, must be big. But in Two Percent Solutions for the Planet: 50 Low-Cost, Low-Tech, Nature-Based Practices for Combatting Hunger, Drought, and Climate Change, conservationist and author Courtney White argues that many of the solutions to our environmental challenges that can make a real difference, are actually small low-cost, easy-to-implement strategies that can be employed today.
