They were all stars in their hometowns. Then they were drafted to play minor league ball, thinking it would be an easy ride to playing in the big time.

Currently playing: Anne Richter speaking about “Distant Signs”
Distant Signs is an intimate portrait of two families spanning three generations amidst turbulent political change, behind and beyond the Berlin Wall. In 1960s East Germany, Margret, a professor's daughter from the city, meets and marries Hans, from a small village in Thuringia. The couple struggle to contend with their different backgrounds, and the emotional scars they bear from childhood in the aftermath of war. As East German history gradually unravels, with collision of the personal and political, their two families' hidden truths are quietly revealed. An exquisitely written novel with strongly etched characters that stay with you long after the book is finished and an authentic portrayal of family life behind the iron curtain based on personal experience of the author who is East German and was 16 years old at the fall of the Berlin Wall. Why do families repeat destructive patterns of behaviour across generations? Should the personal take precedence over the political? Can we rise above our histories and political identities to forge a new understanding of the past and to welcome change?

Will Thomas find his far-flung utopian land, or is this American expat lost in transit?

Currently playing: Henry J. Wise speaking about “It's Only An Opinion: An Appraiser in Court”
The abrupt collapse of real estate mortgage values beginning in 2008 lead to a five-year worldwide recession. This near failure of the banking system substantially increased the public's awareness about the importance of understanding what an appraiser thinks or does.
Written from the point of view of the appraiser and based on real-life experiences, this book shares insights valuable to industry experts as well as the tens of thousands of people who find themselves in court because the value of something is an issue. Most of author Hank Wise's work has been as an expert witness in civil cases wherein the critical issue to be decided is 'what is it worth?' His clients include the U.S. Department of Justice, states, cities, counties, and many national and regional law firms. He appraised the Everglades and Big Cypress, tourist attraction caves, wells, mountains, air rights, mineral rights, even when all parties agreed that there were no minerals, as well as the usual panoply of shopping centers, apartments, office buildings and other commercial real estate properties. It's Only An Opinion: An Appraiser in Court uses interesting and unusual cases to illustrate the appraisal process and the reasoning that makes an appraisal credible.

Currently playing: Brian H. Casull, M.D. speaking about “Earthquake: How the Ever-shifting Healthcare Model Victimizes Americans”
Healthcare in America is littered with confusing rules and unclear systems. The discussion is oft centered on misconstrued facts and downright lies. Some politicians claim that nobody ever died from lack of access, that the Affordable Care Act is unnecessary and American healthcare isn't cost-prohibitive. Some claim no one has lost Medicare or Medicaid coverage and pre-existing conditions don't threaten coverage.
One thing that can't be denied about American healthcare is how often the average consumer is left confused. Earthquake: How the Ever-shifting Healthcare Model Victimizes Americans uses an easy-to-understand metaphor that equates the ever-shifting healthcare system with tectonic plates: just as earthquakes create victims with every shift of tectonic plates, so does the unstable American healthcare system.
Dr. Brian Casull, a physician and physician executive of over 40 years, provides information that will help you escape to solid ground, including discussions about:
- What drives healthcare cost and what you can do about it;
- What the Affordable Care Act does and doesn't do;
