Shadow Politics, February 14, 2016
On our program for Sunday, February 14th, Valentine’s Day, we’re taking a unique approach to this traditional day of love and commitment. Please join us as we introduce you to meet Dr. Bonnie Eaker Weil, an internationally acclaimed psychologist. Dr. Bonnie will be speaking with us about adultery. She wrote a book, “Adultery, the Forgivable Sin” and she will share with us how adultery might be considered a disease that follows generations in a family and how a couple can heal and recover from adultery. Following Dr. Bonnie will be Jules Martinez Hirst, a nationally prominent expert on etiquette. Jules will speak with us about manners such as how to introduce one person to another, how to set the table, what to do with your napkin when you leave the table, which utensils to use and when and how. Additionally, Jules will talk about entertaining clients or colleagues professionally and what is expected in those encounters to distinguish us from others who aren’t paying attention to the finer points.

Shadow Politics is a grass roots talk show giving a voice to the voiceless. For more than 200 years the people of the Nation's Capital have ironically been excluded from the national political conversation. With no voting member of either house of Congress, Washingtonians have lacked the representation they need to be equal and to have their voices heard. Shadow Politics will provide a platform for them, as well as the millions of others nationwide who feel politically disenfranchised and disconnected, to be included in a national dialog.
We need to start a new conversation in America, one that is more inclusive and diverse and one that will lead our great nation forward to meet the challenges of the 21st century. At Shadow Politics, we hope to get this conversation started by bringing Americans together to talk about issues important to them. We look forward to having you be part of the discussion so call in and join the conversation. America is calling and we're listening… Shadow Politics is about America hearing what you have to say. It's your chance to talk to an elected official who has spent more than 30 years in Washington politics. We believe that if we start a dialog and others add their voices we will create a chorus. Even if those other politicians in Washington don't hear you — Senator Brown will. He's on a mission to listen to what America has to say and use it to start a productive dialog to make our democracy stronger and more inclusive. If we are all part of the solution we can solve any problem.
