Join Monica and Caroline this week on Writers' Voices as we bring back one of our favorite guests, Linda Egenes, to discuss her latest book "Super Healthy Kids: A Parent's Guide to Maharishi Ayuveda," coauthored with Dr. Kumuda Reddy. This is the first book on Maharishi Ayuveda and children, and follows in the footsteps of "For a Blissful Baby: Healthy and Happy Pregnancy with Maharishi Vedic Medicine."
As explained in Super Healthy Kids, "All parents want the best for their children. Yet when faced with a sick kid, it's hard to know what to do. The time-tested wisdom of Maharishi Ayurveda offers surprisingly effective solutions to children's health problems today—from ADHD to obesity." We will be talking to Linda Egenes about what it takes to write an authoritative book on such an important topic.

Tune in tonight and listen to my interview with Shadoe Stevens, announcer for the "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" on CBS and one of the great voices of radio. When Casey Kasem left the show "American Top Forty", Shadoe became the new host for the next 6 years. During this time, it became the most successful and widely syndicated radio show in the world. It was broadcast in 120 countries to an estimated 1 billion listeners every week. His voice became one of the most recognizable voices in the world.
Now he's finally made it on KRUU-FM. Seriously, I found his book "The Big Galoot" (www.buygoodbook.com) and loved it and he was so kind and generous, he was happy to do an interview with us.
Listen tonight to "The Big Galoot" starting at 8pm.
