Stories they told

This is a HUGE show this week since we have two creative GIANTS on the show:
Amy Ferris and Dylan Brody.

Amy Ferris is an author (Marrying George Clooney: Confessions from a Mid-life Crisis), screen & television writer, journalist & editor, Buddhist, married person and cat owner who loves writing about, championing, supporting, encouraging and inspiring women. Her fervent wish (and prayer) is that all women awaken to their greatness: using their lives fully, with passion, compassion, determination, hope, self-fullness, humor, truth, authenticity, power, boldness, kindness and forgiveness. Amy wants women to forgive themselves for all those old antiquated belief systems that were instilled and engraved in their lives by others who just didn’t know any better. Plus, she’s funny.

Purveyor of Fine Words and Phrases™, Dylan Brody is an award winning playwright, humorist, thrice published author and a regular contributor to The Huffington Post. In recent years, he has emerged as a radio raconteur, whose witty and profound tales of his journey through life are unique, yet utterly recognizable to everyone, earning him a reputation as one of America’s fastest rising storytellers.
Brody’s new CD, A TWIST OF THE WIT, his third, was released in February 2011. His stories are heard on Sirius-XM Satellite Radio’s LaughUSA and RawDog Comedy channels and were included in the premiere Comedy Catalogue for PANDORA.

And they’re BOTH on the show! Plus: Dropping your Gs and a story about a friend.

Happy New Year!
