1. ==> Time to Ditch the Electoral College

Hillary Clinton now leads the national popular vote for
president by roughly one million votes, and her victory
margin is expanding rapidly. That margin could easily
double before the end of an arduous process of counting
ballots, reviewing results, and reconciling numbers for
an official total. So how come Donald Trump will be our
next president? The Electoral College. Invite Pat
Rosensti to discuss the how that happens and how the
bipartisan National Popular Vote initiative could
change that. “It would commit states to respect the
national popular vote (as part of a multi-state compact
in which states with a majority of electoral votes
commit to assign them to the candidate who gets the
most votes) and end the absurdity of elections in which
losers can become presidents.” The measure has already
been enacted into law in 11 states with 165 electoral
votes, and will take effect when enacted by states with
105 more electoral votes. Rosensti is with the group
National Popular Vote. Contact her at

2. ==> Archer Actor Lucky Yates

Actor/comedian Lucky Yates is best known for his role
as Dr. Algernop Krieger on the hit animated series

3. ==> The Clairvoyant Gourmet – Get Grandma’s Recipes

Wish you could remember Aunt Judy’s pumpkin pie recipe?
Maybe your grandma made the best stuffing but you can’t
recall the secret ingredient. For a fun show invite
psychic medium Janie Boisclair to channel Thanksgiving
recipes from the spirit world! Listeners can call in
and uncover their Thanksgiving dishes and traditions
from past generations who’ve passed away. The spirits
seem to especially want to connect with Janie through
her sense of taste and smell, since for years every
reading she has given has had some type of food
element. Through her readings, she brings back missing
ingredients, lost family recipes, joyous meal-time
memories from the other side, and memories that need to
be revisited for therapeutic reasons. She can even
connect with spirit guides who offer insight on what
foods are needed to balance your Chakra energy system.

4. ==> Don’t Flip the Bird on Thanksgiving

Your father and stepmother supported Clinton. Your aunt
and uncle love Trump. Your cousin was gaga for Bernie
and who knows for whom she voted. Your brother, the
conspiracy theorist, didn’t even vote. Just thinking
about all these folks gathered around the table at
Thanksgiving is enough to cause indigestion. Jen Coken,
a Washington, D.C.-based life coach and stand-up
comedian, knows what to do to “eat the bird” when you
feel really feel like “flipping the bird.” She’ll
encourage everyone to keep their sense of humor during
the holidays as well as to use her three keys: Stop,
Drop and Roll to put the thanks back into Thanksgiving.
Her tips include when to give yourself a time out and
what to do during it; how to redirect uncomfortable
conversation away from politics; and how to roll on
when opposing viewpoints threaten to rear their ugly
head. Coken operates a company called Embrace the
Ridiculousness of Life! and is the author of “When I
Die, Take My Panties: Turning Your Darkest Moments into
Your Greatest Gifts.” Contact her at (303) 859-9081;

5. ==> Thanksgiving – Do You Stress Over Going Home?

Thanksgiving is the beginning of one of the most
stressful times of the year for families. Between the
in-laws, ex-laws, and step-laws, just deciding which
family to spend the holidays with can send us over the
edge. Tom Gagliano says, “Sometimes, returning home and
rekindling the family dynamics we grew up with can be
the most stressful of all. No matter what identity we
have tried to shape for ourselves in the outside world,
many of us are forced to face the roles we were set up
to play in childhood when we go back home.” Gagliano
will discuss ways to navigate family functions without
dread, how to change your role in the family, and why
families make us so crazy! Tom Gagliano, MSW, is a
mentor, speaker and the author of “The Problem Was Me.”

6. ==> Don’t Argue, Collect Family Stories

This Thanksgiving, as families gather around, instead
of making small talk (or arguing over politics), Robb
Lucy suggests using the time to share family stories.
The author of “How Will You Be Remembered?” will shares
ways to get the conversation started, how it can bring
families closer, and why he believes people shouldn’t
leave a legacy, they should live it. He’ll discuss what
a legacy is, why it’s not just packaging up all your
wealth and divvying it up to the kids, and how anyone
can write their own legacy letter that tells the world
the values you lived by, and the story of how you lived
each value. Robb Lucy’s book is “How Will You Be
Remembered? A Guide for Creating and Enjoying Your
Legacies Now.” Contact him at (604) 874-7700;

7. ==> 3 Reasons to Be Thankful for a Trump Presidency

Many people are emotionally exhausted after an election
season marked by negativity and fear. But now it’s time
to focus on healing the nation’s psyche. In that
spirit, Cindy Hochart offers three reasons to be
thankful for a Trump Presidency even if you voted for
Hillary Clinton. Hochart, an executive performance
coach who leads teams through good and bad times, will
point out that Americans should give thanks that they
have a right to vote, to have that vote counted and to
vote differently four years from now. She’ll also say
that under Trump they’ll be an opportunity to fix
Obamacare while keeping what is good about it. In
addition, she will share how anyone can rewrite their
brain to be more positive at Thanksgiving time or
anytime. Hochart is the author of “Find Your Burning
Bush.” Reach her at (816) 588-588-8735;

8. ==> Why You Should Unplug this Thanksgiving

“In an age when people are never without their
smartphones, headphones and tablets, silence has become
scary,” says Andro Donovan, a leadership development
specialist. She says we are no longer accustomed to the
sounds of silence and have lost the ability to connect
to who we really are. She’ll discuss how noise and
distractions became 21st-century addictions and how to
use the Thanksgiving holiday to get unplugged, enjoying
a restful respite that allows you to be fully present
in your loved ones’ lives. Andro Donovan is best known
for her life-changing retreats which take place around
the world. “Motivate Yourself: Get the Life You Want,
Find Purpose and Achieve Fulfilment” is her first book.

9. ==> More Boomers Turning to Gigs

It hasn’t been easy being a working baby boomer lately.
Their jobs have been hurt by global competition,
changing business conditions and cost-cutting. Faced
with underemployment, unemployment, lower pay and job
hunting techniques that no longer work, more boomers
are turning to the gig economy, notes Spunk Burke,
author of “The GIG Solution,” which drops next year.
Spunk will explain how boomers are learning to target
prospects with problems they can solve on a project
basis. He’s a staffing veteran who provides coaching
that helps jobless boomers build rewarding and secure
gig practices. Spunk can be reached at (978) 835-8588

10. ==> Trump Won but You Still Won’t Have $ to Retire

Whether it was Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton who won
this year’s election, the majority of Americans still
won’t have enough money to retire. Financial expert
Gary Stone says, “80% of everyday Americans will retire
with a nest egg that won’t last their golden years or
provide for a comfortable and independent retirement.
Investors have to cut loose from being fee-fleeced by
Target Date and active mutual funds for decades.” Gary
will discuss the 3 biggest mistakes people make when
saving for retirement, how to protect a nest egg from
the next severe bear market and why diversification is
a poor risk management strategy for multi-decade
investing. Your listeners will learn simple things they
can do now to make sure they don’t outlive their money
A financial markets researcher and investor of 26
years, Gary Stone is the author of “Blueprint to
Wealth: Financial Freedom in 15 Minutes A Week.”

11. ==> The Flu is Not a Season!

The flu is not a season, says Dondi Dahlin. “The
influenza virus must be present for people to catch the
flu, and that can happen any time of year. However,
more people tend to get the flu in winter months but
that may be because of low levels of vitamin D and
melatonin due to less sunlight, or stale air because
more people spend time indoors with the windows
sealed.” Whatever the case, Dondi says there are easy
things you can do to make sure your immune system isn’t
compromised. She’ll share 60-second energy medicine
techniques your listeners can do in the office, in a
meeting, or even behind the wheel of their car. Dondi
Dahlin co-authored the book “The Little Book of Energy
Medicine.” She is a member of the Screen Actors Guild
and the American Federation of Television & Radio
Artists. Contact her at (858) 405-1827;

12. ==> How to Get into an Elite College

Applying to college is confusing and if you’re hoping
to get into a competitive program, it can be difficult.
High school students are stressed or lost and their
parents are concerned, if not terrified. Jason Ma says
most students and parents underestimate the complexity
of the elite college planning, applications, and
admissions process. As a teen success coach and mentor
and elite college admissions consultant, Jason knows
the challenges common to high school and younger
students, parents, and educators, and can share ways to
be successful in college admissions, life, and early
career positioning. Jason Ma is founder, CEO, & chief
mentor of ThreeEQ, Inc., a success coaching and
consulting firm, and the author of “Young Leaders 3.0.”

13. ==> Lost in the Middle Class – Making College

College isn’t cheap. Parents send students off to learn
about the world and hope they’ll return home with a
degree and job prospects, but they’ll also likely face
a mountain of debt. No matter where you study, a
college tuition is pricey and the cost of attending
school just keeps climbing. Graduating seniors often
leave campus with staggering student loan debt. There
are grants and scholarships available, but millions of
American families don’t qualify for any financial aid.
Invite Adrian Ridner, CEO and co-founder of Study.com,
to explain secrets colleges don’t want you to know that
could save you thousands on your degree. Plus, you’ll
learn simple things you can do to reduce the cost of
college, even if you don’t qualify for financial aid.

14. ==> Make America Peaceful Again: Yoga

Is your audience suffering from post-election stress
disorder? Teresa Power, a leading yoga expert, will
share quick and easy yoga and meditation tips to help
your listeners reduce stress and maximize hope. Power
will discuss real-world ways families can find inner
peace in this time of outer turmoil, from doing a few
simple yoga poses to limiting time on social media and
trying a meditation app. Power is an internationally
recognized yoga expert and bestselling author of the
award-winning book series, The ABCs of Yoga for Kids.
With over 30 years of yoga experience, she ignites a

adults and children. She is also the founder of
International Kids’ Yoga Day whose mission is to raise
awareness about the benefits of yoga for children
around the world. Contact her at (310) 266-7705;

15. ==> Deez Balls!

Because men are often too embarrassed to seek medical
advice on potential early warning signs, and early
detection and early treatment is vital to surviving
male cancer, A UK-based charity is grabbing the issue
by the balls. Gigantic balls. The Male Cancer Awareness
Campaign recently launched the SKYBALLS campaign. They
call it the world’s biggest male cancer awareness tool.
It’s a whopping 100ft hot air balloon shaped like
testicles and it’s popping up all across the UK.
Charity Ambassador Professor Greg Whyte OBE says it may
be bold (and a little off-putting to some) but it
works. “The work MCAC does in raising awareness and
reducing the embarrassment and stigma of male cancer is
amazing. Using truly innovative ways of highlighting
the issues for men including the use of some incredible
mascots has saved lives.” Past campaigns have included
Going Commando, Near Naked Man, and James Bum 002 for
bowel cancer. SKYBALLS is touring the UK appearing at
schools, colleges, workplaces and major events. Contact
