A delightful return visit to the KSFR studios from intrepid travel journalists, award-winning author Judie Fein and gifted photographer husband Paul Ross. Halloween is here and the veil between the living and dead is said to be at its “thinnest.” How to Communicate with The Dead and How Cultures Do It Around The World tells real-life stories from Paul and Judie’s conversations and experiences from South Africa to Ukraine, from Israel to Japan and beyond. In this interview we explore death traditions and ceremonies near and far, from the hair raising to the heart opening and life affirming, encouraging you, the listener, to reach out to your own departed loved ones if you wish and to listen wisely if they reach out to you. How to Communicate with The Dead is available everywhere or order from your local bookstore. www.globaladventure.us

A podcast treat for horse lovers from Judy Beil Vaughan who reads from her delightful and poignant memoir, Strawberry Roan: Growing Up in The Shadow of Hermit’s Peak. A collection of short stories set in Northern New Mexico’s beautiful mountain wilderness and her childhood in Montezuma. Judy was training horses on her family’s horse ranch by the time she was 11 years old and became a skilled rider and aspiring rodeo queen until the promise of medical school took her into a new direction. Memoir writers will particularly enjoy the way in which Judy has designed her beautiful book around the horses she has known and loved. www.judybeilvaughan.com
