I could try all night to come up with something clever to describe Ginger's spirit . . . and still fail miserably, because authenticity can only come from its true source. Thank you Ginger. Don't forget to follow me on Linkedin, because I'll be following you.

Episode 11 - Kristen Ulmer, The Art of Fear

Unfortunately for her, Kristen Ulmer's memory of our 1988 encounter is much more vivid than mine. Makes sense. After all, I was sleeping while she was doing whatever it was that she was doing. This healing woman touched me in 1988 and did so again today, this time stretching 2,000 miles to do so. She's crazy intimidating, but don't be afraid of Kristen; after all, it took her more than 5 hours (5!!!) to ski a measly 2400 vertical feet AND she gets credit (Ski/Snowboard HOF) for going that slow. C'mon Kristen, keep up. (girls, ugh!) What? Are you afraid? Thanks Kristen. You're amazing! Let's talk about that heli-skiing trip to Alaska when I see you at the premier of "Voices of Fear" in SLC on Friday night. I'm not afraid of helicopters or avalanches, it's not like it's court or anything. But I'm not afraid to tell you that I won't be going on anything where all I have to do is "un-weight" to "ski". That scares me.

University of Utah Law Professor Amos Guiora discusses how a personal project conceived during a morning jog with a friend inspired him to research his family history, which is so amazing and heroic that he felt the need to write this important book. Professor Guiora not only memorializes and honors his extraordinary family, but he unwittingly continues to define his character by asking everyone else to question their own. Not an easy task. Great guest. Good luck.

Episode 8 - I’m Not Optimistic, Which Is Good

In order to provide a backdrop for "nothing" this week, I'll be talking about another deadly tsunami which inspired another dead author to write another old book. This short, little, funny book about evil, misfortune and optimism is a good one. Or maybe it's a bad one. Or maybe it depends on how you look at it.

“Optimism," said Cacambo, "What is that?" "Alas!" replied Candide, "It is the obstinacy of maintaining that everything is best when it is worst.” ― Voltaire, Candide
