Happy Monday everyone! This past week we had some minor tech difficulties, so I’m just now able to post a segment from the November 7th show. It’s definitely worth hearing, though, because it’s with one of the most talented and entertaining artists I’ve talked to in a long time. Robert Post, creator of Post Comedy Theater, kicked off the latest TPAC Family Field Trip series. This impossible-to-define performer combines vaudeville, mime, music, classical theater and just about everything else to create some unique family-oriented fun. Take a listen, then check out tpac.org to find more great family field trips. Robert Post/Post Family Theater
This week, I talked to a guy who knows how to persuade just about anyone! And for those of us with teenagers, this is a handy talent to have in your back pocket. Chris St. Hilaire’s techniques work in any situation from your home life, personal relations to your interactions with that cranky boss and deadbeat co-workers. You can learn these communication skills from reading his new book “27 Powers of Persuasion: Simple Strategies to Seduce Audiences and Win Allies.”

And finally, have you hugged your child’s teacher lately? Have you thanked the bus driver for getting your student to and from school safely? How about those hearty folks in the school’s front office? This is American Education Week, so it’s a good time to let the dedicated people on the front lines of education know your appreciate them. I talked to Gera Summerford, President of the Tennessee Education, about what’s going on in our local schools. The TEA represents teachers throughout the state and you can learn more about it from www.teateachers.org. Here’s Gera’s interview. Gera Summerford
