A Fly On The Wall


Generation Chef by Karen Stabiner is a captivating page-turner about the first year at a young chef’s first restaurant. Stabiner researched her story like a fly-on-the-wall in Jonah Miller’s New York kitchen. The result is a tale full of gripping details that reads like a novel. The author chronicles restaurant culture across the United States over the past decades, the growing, intense financial pressures, the overcrowded field, and the impact of social media, which can dictate who thrives, who survives, and who crashes and burns. Karen Stabiner joins us for the next edition of Life Elsewhere to talk with Norman B about her new book, Generation Chef – Risking It All For A New American Dream.

Also in the program, we are very pleased to bring you the latest single from Spartan Jet Plex. The talented musician behind the odd-sounding name is Nancy Kells, and we believe she deserves your attention. Plus, Russian blogger, Sergey Armeyskov shares his opinion on how Russians view the US Presidential election, Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton. Make sure you don’t miss the next edition of Life Elsewhere.

Bowie Was Part Of Our Lives, Says Wreckless Eric

“The eulogies, tributes and public outpouring of grief on Facebook and Twitter and everywhere about the passing of David Bowie, is not really about him so much as about the people grieving. Because what’s happening is, he shaped our lives, whether you agree with that or not is beside the point. He reinvented pop music and style. He had such an influence on us. He was part of our lives. So when he died, part of us died too.” The contemplative words of Wreckless Eric, the man who penned one of rock and pop music’s most enduring songs, Whole Wide WorldEric joins Norman B for the next edition of Life Elsewhere to chat and play tracks from his excellent new album, cryptically titled, America.

Power, Corruption & Lies

Trainspotters, detail obsessives and conspiracy theorists alike will appreciate our headline. It’s the title of New Order’s second studio album from May 1983.  We think it fitting to use a provocative title that also ties in the groundbreaking Manchester band. After all, Manchester United are certainly one the world’s most well-known soccer clubs and they also happen to be a favorite of Robert PriestFounder and Editor of Eight By Eight the dazzlingly creative and premier magazine devoted to the beautiful game. Robert joins the next edition of Life Elsewhere to help us understand all about the Power, Corruption & Liesthat brought FIFA and the unlikely-named Sepp Blatter into the world’s headlines this week.

Also in the program, former banker at J P Morgan, Michelle Millertalks about her debut novel, The Underwriting. A corporate thriller that takes place at Hook, an online dating start -up, where a high-stakes deal pitches the power of Wall Street against the savvy of Silicon Valley – until a young woman’s death threatens to topple it all.
