S2 E04 – Cross Winds: The Business and High-Flying Adventures of SM&A Founder Steven Myers

Our guest on this week’s Book Spectrum can not really be categorized.
Is he a businessman? He did found S-M-and-A, led several companies and is what we call a “serial entrepreneur.”
Is he an adventurer? In 1992, at the end of the Cold War, Steven Myers became the first American since Charles Lindbergh in 1931, to pilot an aircraft into the Russian Kamchatka peninsula – to do business.
A life-improvement specialist? His dealings in Post-Soviet territories have made lives better for their populations.
Steven Myers is also a Mathematician and served in the Air Force… that’s a short list.
We wanted to learn more about Myers after reading his book: CrossWinds: Adventures and Entrepreneurship in the Russian Far East, so we invited him on the show.

S2, E02: Art Rios Says, :"Let's Talk"

Can you look back at your life and say you have no regrets? Are you bogged down by the meaningless complexities of the world? In his witty and poignant first book: Let’s Talk, lawyer and “Student of Humanity” – as he puts it – Art Rios says it’s never too late to make your life exciting, easier, and exceptional.

“When, where, why, and how did life stop being exciting and straightforward?” Rios asks. “We’ve taken on so much stress and worry. All the time. But why? For what?”

The book, Let’s Talk, is arranged as a series of “talks.” Rios offers fun, simple ways you can improve your life today. It can be as easy as spending more time with family, relaxing with a long lunch, or enjoying a lazy Sunday in your pajamas.

“Improving your life doesn’t have to be complicated,” says Rios. “It’s just a matter of putting a little common sense and thought into the way you’re living your life.”

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the passing of the 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which granted women the right to vote. The women’s suffrage movement was not a new thing then, it was being fought for be courageous, pioneering ladies for over 70 years before the 1920 ratification.
Susan Zimet, anti-hunger advocate and author of the book Roses and Radicals: The Epic Story of How American Women Won the Right to Vote, talks with host Chris Cordani about the earliest days of the suffrage movement before the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848, the work of women like Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucy Stone into the final authorization of the 19th amendment.
