    Gary Rosen interviews Randall Kenneth Jones in a no-holds-barred conversation

    Author, speaker and JONES.SHOW podcast host Randall Kenneth Jones wears many hats; however, his expertise in the art of storytelling has garnered the most notice. Every human being and every business has a story to tell — and an audience they need to hear that story. Randy helps individuals and businesses develop their most compelling stories for the online or traditional media best suited to deliver their message.
    With a Foreword by Peggy Post (The Emily Post Institute) and an Introduction by Erin Brockovich, Randy’s live-your-best-life book, “Show Me: Celebrities, Business Tycoons, Rock Stars, Journalists, Humanitarians, Attack Bunnies & More!” was published in late 2016.
    “Show Me” has been described by New York Times Bestselling Author Janet Evanovich as “a bit David Sedaris, a touch Dale Carnegie, a dash of Janet Evanovich….” Barbara Corcoran of “Shark Tank” added: “Randy has created a literary ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ Wickedly funny, yet profoundly touching! Show Me is ‘Shark Tank’ meets NASCAR meets Broadway meets ‘The Partridge Family.’”
    In 2018, in partnership with Susan C. Bennett (the original voice of Siri), Jones launched JONES.SHOW, a new podcast with his signature “look for the best in people” focus.
    Whether he is writing, speaking, training or helping others grow, Jones’ platform is unwavering. His ongoing mission supports positive communication, creative thinking & innovation and authentic self-expression.
    A uniquely entertaining motivational speaker, Jones focuses his infotainment to appeal to a broad range of business and educational platforms. He is a graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia.

    Steven Petrow’s "Stupid Things I Won’t Do When I Get Old"

    Steven Petrow’s "Stupid Things I Won’t Do When I Get Old"

    Not long after his 50th birthday, journalist and perennial do-gooder Steven Petrow began making a list of the stupid things he refused to do when he got old.
    This tally—which kept getting longer and longer—proved to be a highly judgmental, not-quite-mean-spirited-but-close accounting of everything he thought his parents were doing wrong.
    His list covered all their poor choices, and he personally vowed not to blame the dog for his incontinence (like his dad) — or to forgo a walker because it wrecked his outfit (like his mom). Or to join the chorus of “organ recitals”— that must-discussed litany of aches and pains, surgery and sciatica that’s seemingly so popular in senior circles.
    Steven’s new book, STUPID THINGS I WON’T DO WHEN I GET OLD, is equal parts funny, informative, transformative, and at times terrifying—in a GOOD way.
    Regardless of your age, STUPID THINGS I WON’T DO WHEN I GET OLD may also be the most entertaining and important book you read this year.
    Steven Petrow is an award-winning journalist and book author who is best known for his Washington Post and New York Times essays on aging, health, and civility. He’s also an opinion columnist for USA Today, where he writes about civil discourse and manners. Steven’s 2019 TED Talk, “3 Ways to Practice Civility” has been viewed nearly two million times and translated into 16 languages.
    He’s a much sought after public speaker, and you’re likely to hear him when you stream NPR or one of your favorite — or least favorite — T.V. networks. Steven also served as the host and executive producer of “The Civilist,” a podcast from Public Radio International and North Carolina Public Radio WUNC.
    A former president of NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ Journalists, Steven is the recipient of numerous awards and grants, including those from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Smithsonian Institution, the Ucross Foundation, the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, and the National Press Foundation.
    In 2017, he became the named sponsor of the Steven Petrow LGBTQ Fellowship at the VCCA, a prize that is awarded annually. Steven lives in Hillsborough, N.C., with his cocker spaniel, Binx Bolling.

    The Jury Duty Debacle with Randall Kenneth Jones

    The Jury Duty Debacle with Randall Kenneth Jones

    Despite the focus on court show guests this season, the idea of going to court scares me. I want to do everything I can to stay on the right side of the law.
    It's also come to my attention that, though I try to be a nice guy, people seem to like it when I get all worked up—and when I occasionally eschew the traditional Randy-with-guest format in favor of a story from my past.
    So, as a tip of the hat to the great legal minds who have blessed us this season, let's go back a few years to when I found myself before a judge, a scenario that almost resulted in one legal professional begging for mercy.
    Content for today's show is from the book "Show Me: Celebrities, Business Tycoons, Rock Stars, Journalists, Humanitarians, Attack Bunnies & More!" by Randall Kenneth Jones.
