“Let us step into the night and pursue that flighty temptress, adventure.” 

J.K. Rowling

What is it like to live in a haunted house? What if that house was actually a medieval prison that housed witches? Richard Estep and Vanessa Mitchell talk about their book, Spirits of the Cage with hosts Brigitte Jia and Katie Choo covering the haunting of one of England’s oldest prisons for witches where Vanessa lived for three years until she couldn’t take it any longer and Richard’s subsequent investigation into the paranormal activities. Trends without ends reporter, Jack Pawlakos looks into the adventures of ghosting, ghost ships, and the tracking via smarkphones and apps of the paranormal.  Brigitte wraps the hour with an Art Attack focusing on ghosts and spirits in art.

BIO: Richard Estep has been a paranormal investigator 23 years, researching haunted locations on both sides of the Atlantic. Richard has appeared on the Destination America TV show “Haunted Case FIles.” He is the author of several non-fiction paranormal books. He makes his living as a paramedic and clinical educator. He also volunteers as a firefighter-paramedic, teaches EMT, and paramedic students at three different medical training establishments, and serves as an on-call communications technician/paramedic on a federal Disaster Medical Assistance Team (DMAT). In the tiny amount of free time that does not involve paranormal investigation and writing about it, he is an unabashed geek, with a particular bias towards all things Star Wars. He is a collector and reader of books. Richard lives in colorful Colorado with his wife, dog, and far too many black cats. www.richardestep.net

“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.” ― Herman Melville

What does it mean to be connected? In today’s highly contentious and divided political climate, there’s an urgent need for people of all faiths and cultures to clarify, communicate, connect, and live our values into action. Hosts Zahra Hasanian and Brigitte Jia interview author of the new book, The Forever Letter, Rabbi Elana Zaiman who works to bridge and heal the values divide by helping people of all faiths and cultures to acknowledge, celebrate, and communicate their values, wisdom and love in powerful and lasting ways with the people who matter to them most. Zahra offers insights on how hope and connecting are healing partners and Brigitte takes music to a new level to connect the world.

“That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.” 

F. Scott Fitzgerald

  • • Literature is the mapping of our souls. It offers hope. Reporter Chelsea Pelchat starts off the show with a historical look at literature and its ramifications through the ages. Hosts Brigitte Jia and Zahra Hasanian discuss a warmhearted comedy of errors set in the world’s harshest place with author Ashley Shelby’s South Pole Station, a wry and witty debut novel about the courage it takes to band together when everything around you falls apart. Our hosts later talk about the impact of literature in a personal introspective. What is function of literature in your life? Is it a tool for communication, source of entertainment, way to express oneself, method of creating art, or a way to gain knowledge? Think about it, then pick up a great book and dive in! Reading is power.

The Gift of Sexuality

Teens talk and the world listens every Tuesday NOON PT on the Voice America Kids Network. Produced by StarStyle® Productions, LLC and Cynthia Brian, these young adults know how to rock and express their unique views. Join the fun!

What is sexuality? Most people will immediately assume we are talking about engaging in a sexual act, however, sexuality is not just about sex. From birth until death, every person is a sexual being. Sexuality defines our gender and can be a complex aspect of our personality. It is how we feel about ourselves. Sexuality is not so much about what you do, but who you are. Hosts Brigitte Jia and Katie Choo interview Dr. Karen Rayne about her book, GIRL: Love, Sex, Romance, and Being You, a growing-up guide for the 21st century by Karen Rayne, PhD—a nationally recognized educator, trainer, author, and expert in sexuality education. Welcoming and inclusive of all self-identified girls, GIRL is uncensored, unbiased, and jam-packed with what today’s teenage girls want and need to know about healthy sexuality, loving relationships, and gender fluidity, as well as thornier subjects such as STI’s, consent, and sexual assault. The hosts also read The Gift of Sexuality by Cynthia Brian and Heather Brittany from the book Be the Star You Are!® for Teens and Katie gives insights about careers involving the study of sexuality.

Karen Rayne Book, Girl.jpgKaren’s bio:

Karen Rayne, PhD, is an educator, trainer, and nationally recognized expert on sexuality. Karen lives in Austin, TX, where she runs a sexuality-education nonprofit called Unhushed, working with people of all ages to make information and conversations about sexuality accessible. Her goal is to ensure everyone has someone to talk with about sexuality and a place to find honest, accurate information. Because she can’t talk with everyone, she writes books like this one. http://karenrayne.com/

Brigitte brings another fascinating Art Attack segment discussing art, artists, and their simplicity. Gust author of Right Where You Left me, Calla Devlin, adds homage to the brave journalists who seek to report the truth, a mother and daughter struggle to build a connection in the wake of a father’s overseas kidnapping.

  • • If health is wealth, why aren’t we taking care of ourselves? Hosts Brigitte Jia and Joven Hundal spend an hour discussing the elements of wellness, not only for our bodies, but for our minds, self-esteem, and spirits.  Millennials have been given trophies and awards for participating in everything. Joven questions the benefits of such a practice as it does not encourage intrinsic motivation. Brigitte tackles defining physical and mental health. How do we maintain an active lifestyle, stay fit, get enough sleep, do homework, have a social life, and eat properly while managing stress, disappointments, anxiety, frustration, and exhaustion? They read and discuss the chapter, The Gift of Health, from Cynthia Brian’s award winning book, Be the Star You Are! 99 Gifts for Living, Loving, Laughing, and Learning to Make a Difference. The take away is that we have one life to live, in one body. Health is a life-long commitment. Being healthy has a profound effect on your happiness and quality of life. It’s worth the effort.

Back to School By Cynthia Brian

Teens talk and the world listens every Tuesday NOON PT on the Voice America Kids Network. Produced by StarStyle® Productions, LLC and Cynthia Brian, these young adults know how to rock and express their unique views. Join the fun!

Welcome to back to school! Can you believe that summer is over? Are you ready for a new school year? Hosts Brigitte Jia and Joven Hundal spend an hour with enlightening information to get your best self ready for this educational season. Sports reporter Katie Lyons asks a pertinent question: “What things am I going to do differently this year?” Fortunately she also offers numerous suggestions to make the following year a great one.

First time author, Fayth Thomas shares real life lessons on positive living including how to provide healthy back to school lunches and snacks with her book, Being the Best You! The book inspires readers to do their part to combat a once-uncommon disease that now, according to the CDC, affects more than 208,000 people under 20 years of age. Being the Best You!explores diabetes in a way that is simple for children to understand, as well as inspires children to strive for career paths that make a difference in their local community.

Brigitte gives a list of ways to be artistic and expressive with pencil cases, binders, collages, and more in Art Attack. Art is simply a form of self-expression, and Back to School provides the perfect window of opportunity for us to remind ourselves that, really, anybody can create art.


BIO: Fayth Thomas is an experienced day-care owner. She lives in the Washington, DC, metro area with her kids, her husband, and their pet fish. Before she started writing children’s books, she specialized in teaching children various things: healthy eating, Spanish, gardening, self-defence, and reading. She specializes in writing a line of books that will educate children with fun bedtime stories. http://www.fayththomasauthor.com/
