America's Love Affair with "Do It Yourself"
Monday, May 8, 2017

When you tackle a new project, do you consult Pinterest or YouTube for advice? Long-gone, it seems, are the days of "classic" mentorship. Rather, we watch videos, read self-help articles or wing it in order to get tasks accomplished – an approach known as "DIY" – "do it yourself." Today, we’re talking about the challenge of personal mentorship in the digital age. But first, a conversation about the proposed health care bill. Join us at 440-2665, and connect with us on Facebook and Twitter.

Behind the Rock Portrait and OnStory
Monday, June 20, 2016
Segment A: Herb Ritts
While his name may not be recognizable, Herb Ritts’ portraits of rock ‘n roll royalty certainly are. His work will be showcased at the Chrysler in “Herb Ritts: The Rock Portraits,” full of familiar images of famous faces such as Cher, Prince, and David Bowie that graced the glossy pages of Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Rolling Stone over the past 30 years. The exhibit, opening June 24th, also features never-before-seen images and video footage by the legendary photographer. We’ll have curators Seth Feman and Susan Leidy in the studio to talk about the monumental exhibit and all the exciting associated events, including rocking Third Thursdays and a lecture on Ritts’ work. Also calling in is former Rolling Stones photo editor Laurie Kratochvil and executive director for the Herb Ritts Foundation Mark McKenna, who both worked closely with Herb Ritts.

Segment B: Brian Ramos
OnStory producer Brian Ramos will be joining Cathy in the studio to discuss the show, which will be replacing the long-standing Car Talk on WHRO. The Austin-based show offers a look inside the creative process of today’s leading filmmakers and writers, and has been regarded as “film school in a box.” Ramos is part of a team dedicated to furthering the art, craft, and business of filmmakers and screenwriters, who bring the stories we love to life on our movie and television screen.

There is evidence to suggest that imposter syndrome correlates with success—and today we'll explore new research showing that people with imposter syndrome tend to be perfectionists, working tirelessly to make sure they excel in every single field.
