The Passerine Project: Bridging Brooklyn and Afghanistan Through Song

It’s easy to take for granted the things we’ve never been without. If we have two healthy legs, we don’t think about what it means to be able to run and walk and jump. If our lungs work well, we don’t give a second thought to being able to breathe. But what about story? Those […]

“I Want to Be Challenged Every Day”: Q&A with <em>Poldark’s</em> Heida Reed

  If you watched the BBC show Poldark this year (which aired in the U.S. on PBS), you’re not alone; the 2015 remake of the 1970s hit series is attracted huge numbers of viewers around the world, all of whom are eagerly awaiting the second season of the show, set to air in 2016. And, of course, one of the things […]

“Work Hard, Stay Humble, Be Kind”: Fashioning a Dream and a Positive Message

  “Fashion doesn’t always have to scream. Sometimes it’s just a whisper, softly telling the world that I am here and I am beautiful.” ~ Love & Bambii Britney Keeler thought she was going to be a physician. Instead she’s an entrepreneur of a fashion line with a message of kindness and a goal to […]

Nuts for Tourism: Q&A with the Banff Squirrel on Twitter and Visiting Banff/Lake Louise in the Canadian Rockies

Twitter can be an odd place. You might even say that sometimes it’s downright nuts. And that’s just fine for the Banff Squirrel, who runs one of the most engaging and entertaining tourism accounts on Twitter. Tweets from @Banff_Squirrel, the account for Banff Lake Louise Tourism, are written by a squirrel that popped up–literally–in 2009 (see […]

The Reckoning, the Rumble, the Revolution: Brené Brown’s <em>Rising Strong</em>

Our job is not to deny the story, but to defy the ending–to rise strong, recognize our story, and rumble with the truth until we get to a place where we think, Yes. This is what happened. This is my truth. And I will choose how the story ends. Brené Brown, Rising Strong “No one could […]

“We Are All Broadcasters”: Q&A with Michelle Gielan on Her New Book, <em>Broadcasting Happiness</em>

Disclosure: BenBella Books, Inc. provided me with a copy of Broadcasting Happiness. No obligations were implied or inferred from this gift. You’ve been there. You’re having a great day, and then you turn on the news and something horrible has happened: wildfires blazing across a drought-ravaged countryside, earthquakes toppling buildings and destroying lives, yet another […]

“Epic and Far Reaching”: Australia’s Marta Dusseldorp on the Post-War Drama <em>A Place To Call Home</em>

  “So,” I asked the woman with the Australian accent on the other end of the telephone line, “when did you find out your show has become a hit in the U.S.?” “When I got a call saying an American girl wanted to interview me!” she laughed. For my part, I was surprised. “She” is Marta […]

“Follow the good work”: Aidan Turner on Poldark, Acting, and Happiness

I have to say, PBS has a way of bringing us some handsome and talented Irishmen. My proof? A few years back, it was Northern Ireland’s fabulous singer and actor Damian McGinty, whom I love (and whose mailing list you should join, so you don’t miss out on future news of his tours and CDs, I’m […]

Your Personal Space Journey: Blue Origin Advancing Ever Closer to Commercial Space Flight

When New Horizons zipped by Pluto the other day, I read a comment somewhere that the oldest living person on Earth had been born before Orville and Wilbur Wright completed their first flight … and now we’ve sent a spacecraft to the most distant planet in our solar system, and beyond. (Oh, go on, Neil […]

“One Day At A Time”: Q&A with Robin Ellis, the “Original Ross Poldark,” on Poldark, Cooking, and Life

Masterpiece Theatre has done it again — literally. Since early March, millions of people around the world have been captivated by the story of Ross Poldark in Poldark, Masterpiece’s adaptation of Winston Graham’s series, set in Cornwall in the late 18th century. Smoldering Ross Poldark, born a rebel in his elite world, has returned from the American Revolutionary […]
