Love Thy Neighbor?

Do you bring new neighbors a pie when they move in next door? Or are you more inclined to anonymously call the authorities to alert them to an overly raucous party? Our perception of what it means to be a good neighbor has changed over the last few decades. Today Barbara Hamm Lee talks about this shift with Bill Bishop, author of The Big Sort: Why the Clustering of Like-Minded America is Tearing Us Apart and attorney Michael Inman of Inman & Strickler.

Alexander Hamilton

Today Cathy talks with Bill Chrystal, a historical interpreter who portrays Alexander Hamilton. He was inspired to portray Hamilton after serving as moderator of The Jefferson Hour for ten years. During that time he discovered that Hamilton was reviled by many of his peers which sparked his curiosity about this founding father. Chrystal has since delved into the life of Hamilton and found him to be a model of success whose lessons translate to modern times. Join us!

Synesthesia

Synesthesia is a neurological condition that causes some people to involuntary link information taken in by one sense to a corresponding perception in another sense. For example, the number seven may be green to a synesthete or they may be able to taste the sound that they are hearing. Long regarded as a rare curiosity it is now estimated that perhaps as many as one in twenty people has some form of synesthesia. Today we'll talk with Dr. David Eagleman, author of Wednesday is Indigo Blue and Dr. Frederic Tate, a member of the psychology department at Eastern State Hospital.

Techno-Centric: Telecommuting

An estimated eleven percent of workers in the United States work outside of their office at least once a month. Last Monday the Commonwealth promoted Telework Day, an initiative aimed at encouraging business to expand telecommuting options. The benefits are varied and include more flexible scheduling for employees and a decrease in harmful pollution created by lengthy commutes. Today we'll talk about telecommuting with Ed Sykes, motivational speaker and success coach of The Sykes Group and Dan Bell with Canon Information Technology Services, Inc.
