Liz Saint John interviews three guests every Sunday morning covering a variety of issues and topics. She talks with representatives from Bay Area non-profit organizations, documentary filmmakers, authors, and professors.
1. Nancy Horan, author of Loving Frank, talks about her new book Under the Wide and Starry Sky, an historical novel about Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson, his work, his American wife Fanny, his family, and the other artists and writers that he encountered.
2. Investigative journalist Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation and Reefer Madness, takes on nuclear weapons in his new book Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident and the Illusion of Safety. He takes us through the real life incidents that brought us to the brink of disaster, introduces us to the brave men who helped, and discusses the chances of a nuclear accident or attack in the future.
3.Sheila Heen and Douglas Stone of the Harvard Negotiation Project discuss their book Thanks for the Feedback: The Science and Art of Feedback (even when it is off case, unfair, poorly delivered, and, frankly, you’re not in the mood.) They talk about the three types of feedback and the three types of feedback triggers and explain the difference between face to face feedback and feedback delivered electronically.
