Science writer and Science Editor for Time Magazine Jeffrey Kluger joins us to discuss and promote his most recent book The Narcissist Next Door. He gives us some surprising statistics about narcissism and some pretty fascinating info on narcissists, e.g.: the most narcissistic U.S. President in history was Chester A. Arthur, and journalists, by nature, are narcissistic.
Dr. Matthew Teutsch, the Interim Director of the Ernest J. Gaines Center at the University of Louisiana Lafayette is our second guest today and he joins the show to discuss some recent upcoming events. Visit http://ernestgaines.louisiana.edu/news-events to view a listing of these events coming soon to the Ernest J. Gaines Center.
Also, Craig McCulloch, one of nine Republicans running for Louisiana's 6th Congressional District seat joins us to discuss why he's running and to discuss the key points of his platform. As a physical therapist who owns a small business, the Affordable Care Act is #1 on his list of issues that need to be dealt with, and he and Jim discuss this and more.
And finally, award-winning author Rod Davis closes out today's show to promote his recent novel South, America: A Jack Prine Novel. Jim Sherman with the Texas Observer calls it "the start of what promises to be a fresh new series of thrillers," and Rod and Jim discuss it and the work that went into writing it. Rod will be at the Louisiana Book Festival this year on November 1st in downtown Baton Rouge.
