    On the Offensive: Karen Stollznow

    On the Offensive: Karen Stollznow

    Have you ever inadvertently hurt someone’s feelings because of what you’ve said, yet had no idea what it was? Or perhaps you’ve used certain references and phrases that were commonplace years ago but are unaware that they cause pain and offense in today’s society.

    We boomers have been around for a while and we know that age can bring a certain amount of wisdom. Yet there are always ways to grow and evolve. Developing the correct communication skills for the world today is one of the most important of these. And that’s where our guest comes in.

    Karen Stollznow is a linguist, a well-known skeptic and the author of numerous highly regarded books on topics ranging from skepticism and the paranormal to forbidden words and the censoring of language. She joins us to help guide us through the maze of communicating effectively and politely given the multi-layered, conflicting views so prevalent in the social climate of today. Her book is called On the Offensive: Prejudice In Language Past & Present.  So, if you care about your relationships and want to interact with others in ways that do not offend, you won’t want to miss this one!

    The Lemon Tree: Sandy Tolan

    The Lemon Tree: Sandy Tolan

    Despite the many upsides of age, a long life means that we boomers have borne witness to a number of horrendous events, incidents of human suffering and wars throughout the world. One conflict that many of us are familiar with but still find difficult to understand is the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestine.

    Our guest, Sandy Tolan, has written a touching, real life account of two people who met shortly after the Six-Day War and did so under extraordinary circumstances. The book is entitled, The Lemon Tree: An Arab, a Jew, and the Heart of the Middle East.

    This is a significant work with an incredibly profound message. It’s also one you will want to share with your grandchildren. So please plan to tune in for this moving and important conversation.
