    The Not Old Better Show, Author Interview Series
    Welcome to The Not Old Better Show, Art Of Living author interview series on radio and podcast.  I’m Paul Vogelzang, and we have an excellent program about building relationships, professional development, leadership training, customer service, and employee engagement. 
    Thank you so much for listening. We’ve got a great guest today in Joe Hart, who, after reading his new book, co-authored with Michael Crom, ‘Take Command: Find Your Inner Strength, Build Enduring Relationships, and Live the Life You Want.‘ I’ve been looking forward to speaking with him for a while and whom I’ll introduce in just a moment…But, quickly, if you missed any episodes, last week was our 691st episode, when I spoke to author and Smithsonian Associate Rick Steves about his new book, Italy is for Food Lovers. Two weeks ago, I spoke with Smithsonian Associate Dr. Eric Chudler about his new science book  Neuropedia: A Brief Compendium of Brain Phenomena.   Wonderful subjects for our Not Old Better Show audience…If you missed those shows, along with any others, you can go back and check them out with my entire back catalog of shows, all free for you, there on our website, NotOld-Better.com
    For more than one hundred years, the wisdom of Dale Carnegie, author of the enduring bestseller How to Win Friends and Influence People, has provided millions of individuals, including me, around the world with a richer, more fulfilling, and happier way of life. Now TAKE COMMAND: Find Your Inner Strength, Build Enduring Relationships, and Live the Life You Want; by our guest today, Joe Hart combines decades of Dale Carnegie’s award-winning training and timeless principles into a master text that tells you everything you need to know about the art of human relations.
    Many in our Not Old Better Show audience on radio and podcast will certainly be familiar with Dale Carnegie and the legend that is How to Win Friends and Influence People; the book is a classic and was first published in 1936.  The classics never fail, and How to Win Friends and Influence People taught me the true art of thinking.  It made me confident in dealing with people.   
    Joe Hart has written a book for today, but with a nod to the history of Dale Carnegie, as the book ‘Take Command’ is co-authored with Michael Crow, the grandson of Dale Carnegie himself.
    Joe Hart is the CEO of Dale Carnegie Training, a company that has transformed itself into meeting the needs of today’s people, managers, and businesses of all sizes: small mom-and-pop to Fortune 500 companies.  Joe Hart tells us about that transformation and what it means for anyone in the Not Old Better Show audience who’s leading, working, living their lives, and doing what you want.  How to get that “best life” is what Joe is all about, and the book describes the principles Dale Carnegie taught in his life and in that book is the foundation of the interpersonal skills that are fundamental to humans interacting with each other in a positive way.   All of us.
    Please join me in welcoming you to The Not Old Better Show, Art Of Living author interview series on radio and podcast, the author of the new book, ‘Take Command,’ and the CEO of Dale Carnegie Training.

    The brain has fascinated and puzzled scientists and philosophers, and all of us, for thousands of years. Although we know a great deal about the brain, there is still so much more to learn. For example, we still do not have effective treatments and cures for many neurological and psychiatric disorders, and our understanding of how the brain generates consciousness is unclear.
    Join me and our guest, Smithsonian Associate Eric Chudler, a neuroscientist at the University of Washington, as he tells us about the fascinating interactive journey into the brain.  Dr Eric Chudler will be appearing at Smithsonian Associates coming up.  Please check out our website for more details on Dr. Chudler’s presentation titled Journey Into The Brain.  Today with Dr. Chudler, we’ll chat about his presentation at Smithsonian Associates and how he’ll use Zoom to engage our audience.  And we’ll talk about the basic function and structure of the brain and several common brain myths. For example, do we only use 10% of our brains? And did dinosaurs have two brains? Dr. Chudler also reveals why he believes everyone, not just scientists, should learn about the brain. Dr. Chudler will give us a guided tour of our most important organ; he will offer insights into our current knowledge of the brain and suggests the directions future brain research may take, including understanding Einstein’s brain! 
    That, of course, is our guest today, Smithsonian Associate Dr. Eric Chudler reading from his new book,  Neuropedia: A Brief Compendium of Brain Phenomena.  Please join me in welcoming to The Not Old Better Show, Smithsonian Associates Inside Science interview series, Dr. Eric Chudler.

Today, Adam Smith is one of the most influential icons of economic thought in America.

Glory Liu tells us about how Adam Smith continues to be a vehicle for articulating perennial moral and political anxieties about modern capitalism today.
