Tuesday
From Geek to Chic:  Knocking The Nerd Stereotype
Why are children so terrified to be called "nerds"?  In an age where we are increasingly dependent upon technology engineered by masterminds in math and science, why isn't it chic to be a "geek?"  In his book, "NERDS: How Dorks, Dweebs, Techies, and Trekkies Can Save America and Why They Might Be Our Last Hope," family psychotherapist and psychology professor Dr. David Anderegg examines why science and engineering have become socially poisonous disciplines and what we can do to prepare our children to succeed in an increasingly high-tech world.  We'll also have updates on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) initiatives in Hampton Roads' and Virginia's education system.

Scheduled Guests:
Dr. David Anderegg
- child and family psychotherapist and author, "NERDS: How Dorks, Dweebs, Techies, and Trekkies Can Save America and Why They Might Be Our Last Hope"
Dr. Jan Cuny - program director for National Science Foundation's Broadening Participation in Computing Program
Jim Batterson - former Senior Advisor to the Commonwealth on STEM Initiatives, retired NASA engineer

Crossing Over
When our days on Earth are done, is there an afterlife that comes next?  If so, what is that journey like?  While these questions have many answers depending on beliefs, one's beliefs have been known to change if that person has a near-death experience.  On Tuesday's program, we're joined by author P.M.H. Atwater this hour who will talk about her new book, "Near-Death Experiences: The Rest of The Story."  The book reveals what happens to children and adults who undergo this phenomenon through extensive, objective research with first "survivor" accounts and Atwater's personal experience.  Also in the broadcast as we explore the topic, internationally-acclaimed psychic medium John Edward will share his experiences with us about "crossing over."

If you've had a near-death experience, we want to hear your story.  Join the conversation and call in to 757-440-2665 or 1-800-940-2240.  You can also e-mail the program at hearsay@whrv.org or join us on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/hearsaywithcathylewis or send us a tweet to HearSayWHRV.
