Two guests…

The crew of Mark Thompson, J. Elvis Weinstein (Josh) and Heather Ankeny discuss a few things before the guests arrive…Including Heather’s most recent relationship drama.  Along the way they change gears and welcome to the conversation BROOKE BURKE-CHARVET and then DAN HARRIS.

Brooke explains a career path that has taken her around the world, made her a substantial star and helped her manage significant family obligations as a mother.  The blog that she writes can be found at

The star of DANCING WITH THE STARS talks about her new book in which Brooke stresses simplicity and de-cluttering our lives of STUFF.   The book is called THE JOY OF LESS – 101 STORIES ABOUT HAVING MORE BY SIMPLIFYING OUR LIVES.

Brooke shares a bit of her high flying life and fills us in on how to say “no” and how to reorganize, prioritize and downsize.

Then DAN HARRIS joins…

DAN HARRIS  is an award winning journalist and co-anchor of ABC’S NIGHTLINE.  Dan also regularly files reports for “World News Tonight with David Muir,” “20/20” and “Good Morning America”.  He’s reported from war zones, inside the prison system and far flung villages in Congo.  We ask him about some of those places and stories.

His book, 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress without Losing My Edge and Found Self-Help That Actually Works went to #1 on the New York Times Bestsellers List and then became an app, designed to teach meditation to skeptics.

As an anchor on GOOD MORNING AMERICA Dan had a panic attack while live on the air that led to revelations about his life and the power of the mind.

The group asks him about the anxiety attacks and his struggle to find answers.

Dan talks about war, solitary confinement in the prison system and  meditation.   It’s an entertaining and provocative conversation.
