The latest edition of Life Elsewhere is available now at Sticher

Dr. Dan Peters, licensed psychologist and author of Make Your Worrier a Warrior: A Guide to Conquering Your Child’s Fears joined the program to discuss how to talk to your children about fear, specifically the latest headline news of an Ebola scare.  Dr. Dan has devoted his career to working with children and families. His practice focuses on the assessment and treatment of children, adolescents, and families with diverse issues and challenges including overcoming worry and fear.

Both Erin Arvedlund and Martin Wolf have written books that read like fiction, but as the saying goes: Truth is stranger than fiction. We could not resist booking the two authors for the same edition of Life Elsewhere because they have both written exceptional books relating to the financial crisis. Martin Wolf, CBE widely considered to be one of the world’s most influential writers on economics and associate editor and chief economics commentator at the Financial Times has written The Shifts and the Shocks: What We’’ve Learned— and Have Still to Learn —from the Financial Crisis. Mr. Wolf’s book, full of graphs and charts, is a riveting read, explaining a complex subject for the layman. His book coincides with the release of Open Secret: The Global Banking Conspiracy That Swindled Investors Out of Billions by Erin Arvedlunda financial writer for thePhiladelphia Inquirer. Ms. Arvedlund documents Libor and the interest rate rigging scandals that emerged out of the 2008 Financial Crisis. We have gave this edition of Life Elsewhere an ominous title, but as you’ll hear from Norman B’s interviews, it’s not all doom and gloom, Ms. Arvedlund and Mr. Wolf both offer (thankfully) glimpses of optimism.

Sensing the program’s darker tone than usual. Norman began with an example of new music he recently discovered. 19-year-old Billie Black from London and the sublime I Waited For You. Later in the show, we present this week’s Hit That Never Was, featuring, from Portland Oregon, Cohen with I Have A Dream from the splendid Owl Said EP.

Life Elsewhere airs every Monday at 9.00am ET (1400 GMT)
