Larry Rifkin took the day off, so I was invited to fill in for him on Talk of the Town for the day.
First hour, I talk about Fidel Castro and the Southern Poverty Law Center, before welcoming Dr. Jeffrey Goldberg to the show. Dr. Goldberg and I discussed the differences between the common cold and the flu, as well as strategies on how to avoid them and/or treat them.
In the second hour, I take some calls and then say hello to Kara Newman, the author of Shake, Stir, Sip: More Than 50 Effortless Cocktails Made in Equal Parts. I highly recommend this book.
Things get really busy in the third hour, first with Lois Anderson from the Friends of Mark Twain House to discuss the 36th Annual Holiday House Tour. I then speak to CT State Comptroller about the continuing budget crisis and whether the problem is finally being taken seriously in Hartford. And then I welcome Michelle Seiler-Tucker, author of Sell Your Business for More Than It’s Worth to talk about the prospects of a Trump economy.
