    Encore: Do Women Hate Men? Are Sex Robots The Answer?

    Encore: Do Women Hate Men? Are Sex Robots The Answer?

    Accusers of Harvey Weinstein, #MeToo and #TimesUp have opened the floodgates of rage against sexual harassment, sexual assault, inequality... and men in general! The hatred of men by women is called misandry - and today's guest, Dr. Paul Nathanson, has defined misandry with his books, research and lectures (which always draw protests, by the way). Dr. Nathanson and Dr. Carole walk this minefield of the war between the sexes, in the context of current events and the Golden Globes, as a sociological snapshot of the state of affairs between men and women. And it ain't pretty. Dr. Nathanson gives an historical perspective of this war, since he has been studying it for the past 30 years. Dr. Carole warns that there will be a 'BLACKlash' from men to the overpowering sea of women-dressed-in-black at the Golden Globes. Was this a funeral for men? Where will this all end? There are manufacturers of female and male sex robots who are anticipating the answer.

    How to Change Your Story to Change Your Life

    No matter how bad your life has been, you don't have to stay stuck on the same path. Today's guest, James Sweigert, author of If You Say So: My Story and How I Changed It To Save My Life, is living proof that changing the story you tell about yourself can turn a traumatic childhood into a successful Hollywood career. Sweigert takes you on his personal journey: from his childhood horrors, alcohol and drug addiction, homelessness, suicide attempt and more to how he turned his life around by changing the story he tells others and himself - from dark pessimism to visions of success that he ultimately achieved.

    One Woman's Journey from Terror to Transformation in Israel

    One Woman's Journey from Terror to Transformation in Israel

    Today's show is particularly timely, given that we are on the brink of war with Iran, a country that has been the biggest perpetrator of terrorism in Israel (and other countries). A few years ago, Penny S. Tee thought she was simply taking a trip to Israel to celebrate her son's Bar Mitzvah. Instead, when bombs started raining down on them, she and her family had eye-opening and life-changing experiences. Penny shares her journey and reveals highlights of her book, Blasted from Complacency: A Journey from Terror to Transformation in Israel. It is Penny’s compelling, true account of her harrowing ordeal and how it jolted her out of inaction and caused her to rethink her beliefs. She exposes the terrifying reality faced daily by Israelis and Palestinians, as they struggle to live their lives under the constant threat of attack. A gripping chronicle of one woman’s ongoing quest for peace both within herself and in the world around her, Blasted from Complacency is a revelation.

    Encore: Reclaiming Treasures Stolen by the Nazis

    Encore: Reclaiming Treasures Stolen by the Nazis

    Though nothing could compensate Holocaust victims or their families for the atrocities that the Nazis committed, the reclaiming of family treasures stolen by the Nazis brings some sense of pride and peace. The movie, "Woman in Gold," tells the story of one woman's quest to recover a stolen family portrait. Today's guest, E. Randol Schoenberg, (played by Ryan Reynolds in the movie), is the attorney who took her case all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court and the Austrian judicial system - and won. And guest, Simon Goodman, just like "The Monuments Men," is in the process of tracing his grandparent's art collection, stolen during the Holocaust. Their true struggles are both heroic and bittersweet.

    Not feeling that holiday spirit? Here's how to fake it til you make it!

    Not feeling that holiday spirit? Here's how to fake it til you make it!

    Have you noticed people don't seem to be feeling holiday spirit-at least not the Hallmark card or Norman Rockwell kind? Dr. Carole helps you understand why it's harder this year and gives advice on how to fake it til you make it, so your holidays can be happier! Some holiday stress comes from not knowing what to wish people without offending them-like a famous comedienne who was reported to her boss for wishing someone "Merry Christmas"! We're too PC these days and it's making people afraid to say anything that might be considered offensive-like the radio host who was fired for a joke about wanting news of a shooting to interrupt the monotony of impeachment. Bad taste, yes, but just a joke. Other news guilty of dampening spirits include the Golden Globes backlash to the #MeToo movement, Notre Dame closed for Xmas, Melody Bannister's kids not yet saved, and a terrorist being called Porn-Stash. Dr. Carole ends the show with a feel-good story you'll want to tell others to cheer them up!
