Episode Description

Kathryn interviews Kim Fairley BFA,MFA author of “Shooting Out the Lights.” Unraveling like a mystery novel, Fairley’s memoir of her marriage to a man thirty-two-years older, who had lost his son in a gun accident, explores the taboo of wide age gap love. Soon after twenty-four-year-old Kim and fifty-six-year-old Vern marry they learn Kim is pregnant. However, their lives are turned upside down when the widow of Vern’s dear friend calls in need of a favor. She wants Vern to take her eleven-year-old son, Stanislaus, whose troubling behavior challenges Kim’s devotion, trust and the underpinnings of her marriage.The book serves as a reminder of the power of talking in coming to terms with massive grief, which has been a major theme during the coronavirus pandemic, that has plunged people into psychological distress, fatigue, occupational burnout, anxiety and depression..Kathryn also interviews Inventor and Speaker Douglas Farrago MD, author of “Noki ” The lawless world of boxing has its reasons for embracing Noki, a young man with autism and his abilities. However they are not good ones. Should he be allowed to make the life-altering decision to enter the ring and put his life on the line? What few know is that Noki is actually a savant who can imitate and transform himself into any legendary boxer he wants — a plot twist that allows him to pay homage to some of the greatest boxers of all time. Farrago draws upon his experiences as an All-American collegiate boxer, a sports medicine trainer for professional boxers and his decades-long career in medicine during which he worked with autism patients to lend authenticity to his characters and narrative. He's the inventor of the Knee Saver, currently in the Baseball Hall of Fame, worn by major league baseball catchers and is the inventor of the CryoHelmet, used by athletes for head injuries and by those suffering from migraines
