    Bob Kittell: The Memory Maestro…and Then Some

    Bob Kittell: The Memory Maestro…and Then Some

    Learning how to memorize changed Bob Kittell’s life.  With it, this now speaker/ author/teacher was able to ace grad school after promising himself to never return to school because he had so much trouble with it.  When his teachers saw this turn-around in him, they asked him to teach it to their other students. 
    This in turn boosted his confidence so much that he felt like he was unstoppable, almost fearless.  And that, in turn, freed him to take so many more risks in his life that he travelled further than he would ever have believed possible. 
    His book,The Memory Maestro, shows how he used memorization to improve his life in so many ways.  With so many books out there on how to memorize, why should you read his?  Because his isn’t just about how to memorize things.  It’s partly a memoire that shows you some ways to use that ability to dramatically improve your own life. 
    And that’s what this interview is about.

    Clent Moore and Sweet Afton

    Clent Moore and Sweet Afton

    The title, Sweet Afton, comes from Irish poet Robert Browning’s lyrical poem.  The theme in the book is how calming the poem is, starting with a man reading it to his wife to ease her pain.  This book has nothing but great reviews.  It’s the story of a man born with a silver spoon – but raised without a sense of entitlement – and how he almost loses it all, and his journey to keep his family.
    If you know Georgia, you’ll recognize Tybee Island, Savannah, and other places.  Clent – yes, not Clint – Moore always wanted to write an adventure novel, so he did.  But it was also therapy for him.  Listen to him talk about it.

    BOB CLENDENIN: The Creepy Creepy Dude and the Giant Nose

    BOB CLENDENIN: The Creepy Creepy Dude and the Giant Nose

    This is our second visit with the ever-entertaining Bob Clendenin, the guy you don't know, but when you see his picture, you go, "Oh, yeah, that guy!"  
    On his first visit, we did not get a chance to talk about his adventures as a giant nose.  And we talked a lot more about improv and discovered he is a woodworker and makes a mean Adirondack chair!  
    Enjoy another fun, funny, and oh so interesting 20-ish minutes.  And if you haven't heard the first interview yet, click here.

    Jewish Museum of Maryland: Harry Houdini and Lots of Other Stories You Didn't Know Where Jewish

    I talked with the Marvin Pinkert, Executive Director of the Jewish Museum of Maryland.  They're featuring a  Harry Houdini show right now. Marvin and I talk about the prodound impact of Jewish American history on American History.  Did you know The Three Stooges were Jewish?  How about Superman and Stan Lee?  Or Dr. Jonas Salk, inverntor of the polio vaccine.  Or Spartacus himself and one of the first cross-dressing movie characters, Tony Curtis (nee. Bernie Schwartz)  And did you know Marvin himself thought the only job you could have in a museum was guard?  Interesting stories!

    Lisa Lindhal and her Amazing, World-Altering Underwear!

    Lisa Lindhal and her Amazing, World-Altering Underwear!

    Lisa Lindahl created the sports bra because she needed one.  I get it.  I used to run with my arms folded across my chest before her invention. 
    Along with Title 9, which came along at the same time, the sports bra is considered to have contributed greatly to rise to prominence of women athletes.  The Smithsonian Museum of Natural History said of it: “The introduction of the sports bra did more than improve athletes' performances. It represented a revolution in ready-to-wear clothing, and for many women athletes, past, present, and future, it actually made sports possible.”   
    And yes, the first one was made from two jock straps.  It looked something like the picture on the left.  For obvious reasons, Lisa wanted to call it the jockbra.  But the word jock had connotations then that it doesn't have now, so she had to change it to — yes, you guessed it: the jogbra.
    She's got a book out now, called Beauty as Action: The Way of True Beauty and How its Practice Can Change Our World.

    Bob Clendenin: The Full 60_minute Interview

    Bob Clendenin: The Full 60_minute Interview

    Bob Clendenin is one of those actors who, when you see him, you go, “Hmm… Why does his face look familiar?  He’s the creepy dude.  In his recurring role on the TV show Scrubs, another character tells Bob’s, “You are hands down the most disturbing man I’ve ever met in my life.”  Yep, Bob has made a living by being weird.  Or sad, like Emmett Kelly’s clown. Bob has been featured on 10 Items or Less and an improvised Western series called Quick Draw.  He became a regular on Cougar Town, with Courtney Cox.  And he’s had guest appearances in too many more tv shows to mention here.  Same thing with movies.  And commercials… 
    Capable of looking downright normal when he chooses to, he does Shakespeare and dramatic roles, too.  He was one of seven actors in 1996 to start Circle X Theater in Los Angeles, a theater that is still winning awards and critical acclaim today.
