New Book: A Quarter Million Steps by Anthony Paustian

Our friend and leading creativity thinker Dr. Anthony Paustian will release his new book A Quarter Million Steps - Creativity, Imagination & Leading Transformative Change in May but we got him BEFORE the book is public. Here we talk about how, in many areas even with all the personal technology, there is a lack of the stuff that made the Apollo space program so successful and transformed the way we live today. It is not only a book about our amazing history it is also a book about the many small steps it takes to create success in life. We'd tell you more but...you should just listen!  To Pre-Order the book, with signatures of Dr. Paustian and Apollo Astronaut Al Worden head to this link!

“Out Of The Mud” with George Hanusa

He has a passion for writing and for history. Meet George Hanusa a 40+ year resident of the tiny town of Windsor Heights, Iowa and author of "Out Of The Mud - How a Rural Coal Mining Settlement Became the City of Windsor Heights". What is curious about Windsor Heights (Pop 4,900) is that it sits directly in the center of the Des Moines Metro surrounded by much larger communities. All of that could have been different had the community annexed what is now the City of Clive. Hanusa has written an unvarnished historical account of Windsor Heights complete with lots of photos and stories any lover of small town history will appreciate. The book is available at the Windsor Heights City Hall, the Windsor Heights Hy-Vee, Beaverdale Books and Plain Talk Books and Coffee.

The Book - No Surrender by Jack Hatch

Even thought I've known him for years I start this interview with former Iowa State Senator Jack Hatch with the admission I didn't realize the depth of his life-long involvement in progressive causes. We move from that into a conversation about his new book, No Surrender - Building a Progressive Agenda for Iowa with the Five Securities. In it Sen. Hatch not only points out the major problems within the Democratic Party, he also lists ways in which his party can reclaim the populist agenda. Something, he says, his party has drifted from. Have a listen...
