Episode 107 – Allan Karl – World Travel / audio

World Travel

Allan Karl (@WorldRider on twitter) calls in to discuss his new book about world travel with host Craig Price. Allan has been everywhere…literally! He hopped onto his bike and saw the world. Along the way he blogged and took photos which led him to create a book about the whole thing. Called  “FORKS. A Quest for Culture, Cuisine and Connection” the book highlights what Allan feels connects us all to each other, regardless of where you live: Food. Craig and Allen discuss why Allan decided to take his bike transcontinental, how he managed to avoid become incontinental and how breaking your leg in another country sounds just as bad as it sounds.Set a course for adventure. Your mind on a new romance…well, maybe not romance. Either way your in for a globe trotting treat.

Allan’s book project can be found at KickstarterIt’s an around-the-world adventure with stunning photos, tasty recipes and inspiring stories all wrapped into a beautiful coffee table book! A great gift for anyone who want to see and taste the world (ok…that sounds weirder than it should).

Episode 106 – Karen Kirkpatrick – Healthcare Reform / audio

Healthcare Reform

Karen Kirkpatrick (@comply4success on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss healthcare reform and the Affordable Care Act. With the ACA (or Obamacare for the the layperson) front and center in the news, causing government shutdowns and general confusion among the average American, it’s fortunate that last weekend’s Association of Legal Administration’s Region 4 Conference had Karen there to sort things out. Craig tries to figure out how companies are going to adjust, will the impact be that bad and what changes will hurt/help the most. Karen shows how compliance will be the most important part and that individuals looking for insurance need to shop around. Will Obamacare be another helpful government program or another example of government over-reach. That’s yet to be determined but lack of information should be an excuse. Head over to www.healthcare.gov to learn more about the new healthcare reforms.

Karen specializes in  HR and Benefit laws and her teaching style brings the legalese and government jargon to the audience in an easy/fun fashion. Her parent company Infinisource.com is always updating their newsroom with the latest information and updates http://newsroom.infinisource.com/

Episode 105 – Jill Foer Hirsch – Breast Cancer Awareness / audio

Breast Cancer Awareness

Jill Foer Hirsch (@JillFoerHirsch on Twitter)  joins host Craig Price to talk about her fight with breast cancer. Cancer can be a pretty intimidating word, never mind a topic for a whole book. But a book about dealing with cancer in a funny way? Impossible!! Not to Jill who’s book “When Good Boobs Turn Bad: A Mammoir” shows that having cancer doesn’t mean losing your sense of humor. Craig and Jill discuss dealing with friends and family who don’t know how to deal with you and your illness, how to find a good doctor, saying NO to a doctor, guilting your friends into laughing at your jokes and why hats can be a lifesaver. She also turns lemons into lemonade when she realized that a new boob job is just what the doctor ordered!

Full disclosure –  I did read and then write a blurb for her book:

“An amusing handbook for many navigating the scary terrain of cancer, the author offers a blueprint to settle the fears of treatment and recovery. With a fun, sassy perspective, this book is a real gift for anyone starting their fight and hoping they don’t have to take everything so seriously!”Craig Price, author of Half a Glass: The Realist’s Guide

Episode 104 – Brian Brandt – Strategic Planning / audio

Strategic Planning

Brian Brandt joins host Craig Price to discuss strategic planning. This is another  Association of Legal Administrators Region 4 conference breakout speakers spotlight! Not only join Brian and Craig in  Albuquerque NM on Oct. 4th but the two are also at the Region 6 conference in Reno, NV on November 1st! Go to http://www.alanet.org/events/regionals.aspx  to learn more. 

While planning of any type can be a bit daunting, being strategic about it can be even more confounding. Craig struggles to figure out how to balance his need to be present and in the moment with the long term vision required for strategic planning, Thankfully, Brian sets Craig straight as they discuss having those usually avoided but highly necessary difficult conversations about planning BEFORE you think about implementing them, asking yourself if a new plan is necessary and how metrics are such an important part of figuring out what’s working. As Brian explains, sometimes after a planning sessions understanding that no action is needed can often be better than any action you can take. And Craig can totally relate to inaction!

Episode 103 – Anastasia Turchetta – Dental Health 2013 / audio

Dental Health

Anastasia Turchetta (@AnastasiaRDH on twitter) – America’s Dental Hygienist – makes her annual pilgrimage to join host Craig Price for a dental health check-up. America is failing in the oral hygiene department so Anastasia is on the case. The two talk about bleeding gums, soft toothbrushes vs. hard, why men need to get to the dentist more and new advances in anesthesia (not Anastasia)…all while fighting off aggressive hotel cleaning staff desperately trying to interrupt the podcast. Spoiler alert: They do! (Craig spends the intro ranting about it.)  Despite the fact that every meeting with Anastasia makes you feel self-conscious about your teeth, she is always a fun interview and this one is no different.

You can find more about Anastasia at her Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/AnastasiaRDH and subscribe to her weekly youtube show “Humpday Happenings” at http://www.youtube.com/Anastasiardh
