Madness at the Gates Of The City

Click here to listen to interview archive

Barry Spector, a Harvard grauduate who writes about American history and politics from the perspectives of myth and archetypal psychology, is the author of Madness At The Gates Of The City: The Myth Of American Innocence (2011, Regent Press).

The book dissects America's belief in innocence and how that has allowed us to re-enact old patterns that cause us to subvert our goals and miss the deeper meaning in events.

Through his book, Mr. Spector uses Greek mythology, indigenous wisdom and archetypal psychology to discover new ways of looking at our present situation and finding healing solutions.

Geoff Hoppe


This Enduring GiftWriters' Voices with Monica and Caroline welcomes two guests this week.  First up is Geoffrey Hoppe, writer of "Masters in the New Energy" by Adamus Saint Germain. Don't worry if that sounds confusing; Geoffrey channels Adamus Saint Germain.  According to Wikipedia, The Count of St. Germain (fl. 1710–1784) has been variously described as a courtier, adventurer, charlatan, inventor, alchemist, and musician, but is best known for his connection to Theosophy. Tune in for an unusual and intriguing interview.


Next, Writers' Voices has the pleasure of speaking with Freddy Niagara Fonseca, Fairfield's own Renaissance Man, about his forthcoming poetry anthology, "This Enduring Gift."  This beautiful volume, featuring 76 poets who have lived in Fairfield, is scheduled to launch September 10.

Join Monica and special guest host Paul Gandy as they welcome former Fairfieldjessica hawthorne-castro resident Jessica Hawthorne-Castro to Writers' Voices.

Hawthorne-Castro was formerly a successful television literary agent for Hollywood's Endeavor Agency, representing writers, directors and producers for television and feature films. In this capacity, she assisted the creators of several top-rated TV programs, such as Entourage, The Office, Heroes, 24, and Law and Order. Jessica has since joined forces with her father, Tim Hawthorne, as the next generation of Hawthorne Direct, a Fairfield-based full-service television advertising agency.

Former Fairfielder Galen Saturley speaks with Writers' Voices host Monica Hadley about his offerings in Blue Tree Publishing's Portrait of a Restaurant series (www.thebluetree.com). These beautiful books break new ground by combining

Dream Not of Other WorldsMonica and Caroline's guest on Writers' Voices this week is Huston Diehl, professor of English at the University of Iowa and author of "Dream Not of Other Worlds: Teaching in a Segregated Elementary School, 1970," published by the University of Iowa Press.

When Huston Diehl began teaching a fourth-grade class in a "Negro" elementary school in rural Louisa County, Virginia, the school's white superintendent assured her that he didn't expect her to teach "those children" anything.

She soon discovered how these low expectations, widely shared by the white community, impeded her students' ability to learn."
