Lou Sapienza (@LouSapienza on twitter) joins host Craig Price to talk about MIA retrieval. It’s not often that Craig has an opportunity to talk to someone who is trying to make a difference. He talks to people who have made a difference or are making a distance but when Craig was made aware of Lou Sapienza and his company North South Polar, Inc. he knew people needed to hear more. The two talk of Lou’s attempts to recover 3 men who had crashed in Greenland during World War II, what kinds of equipment and manpower are needed and how the government needs specialists like Lou to help them recover their lost soldiers. Take some time to listen to what Lou is doing and if you feel the need to help, please contact your US Representative or Senator to let them know you feel this is as an important mission as Craig and Lou do.

Barbara Lee (@BarbaraLeeAuth on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss sextegrity. Talking sex isn’t something Craig jumps at the chance to do. Spirituality? Definitely not in Craig’s wheelhouse. But the chance to talk to Barbara Lee, the Sex Minister, about her new book Sacred Sex, it was too good to pass up. The two discuss the difference between marital ethics and sexual ethics, how pornography is creating issues in society, objectifying women. how active senior citizens are thanks to modern medicine and most importantly they talk how sex is healthy and not shameful.

APP BONUS: You can read Sacred Sex in its entirety via the podcast app.
Between sex as sin and sex as sport is an embrace of sexuality as a good gift. Between the teachings of “just say no” and “whatever turns you on” is a platform where we are free to love our bodies, relish sex, and marvel in this sacred gift. There can be a fine line between sex that harms and sex that heals. How will we make wise decisions about how we will and will not express our sexuality? This book advocates for the development of a Sexual Ethic that takes seriously the desires, needs and pains of our bodies. Living by a Sexual Ethic frees us to love our bodies and to celebrate the gift of sexual intimacy. A Sexual Ethic begins by recognizing that people of all sexual orientations and gender identities are sexual beings who have the innate right to experience a full and satisfying sex life. This book also discusses the movement of masculine and feminine energy in our sexual encounters. Finally, it addresses the damage caused by the separation of body and spirit in the objectification of human beings that is the mainstay of the sex industry.

Gina Abudi (@GinaAbudi on Twitter) returns to discuss socializing projects with host Craig Price. Whenever Craig is asked about project management experts, he immediately brings up past guest Gina Abudi. She know her stuff and has put a lot of that knowledge into her new book “Best Practices for Managing BPI Projects: Six Steps to Success”. So much knowledge that when Craig asked her on the podcast, they needed to narrow her expertise down to fit the time frame. They agreed that socializing projects was one of the most important part and least utilized part of project management. The two discuss how to incorporate and engage stakeholders, dissect a project before it’s implemented, ugly baby syndrome and why a failing pilot program can be so valuable.

Mike spent 18 months alone in the wilds of Alaska as chronicled in his book Inside Passage: Living with Killer Whales, Bald Eagles, and Kwakiutl Indians. This gave him a unique perspective on the nature of the Northwest and now he gets to live out a dream job: being the ship’s Naturalist for Princess Cruises. He not only shares his animal expertise about bears and such, he also talks about hiking glaciers and exploring ice caves. It’s a photographers dream.

Capt. Steve Taylor (Ret.) joins host Craig Price to discuss his life as a commercial pilot. Not many people get to fly commercial jets for a living so when Craig had the chance to get Steve Taylor on the podcast to discuss his latest book “Wheels Up: Sky Jinks in the Jet Age” he was sure to ask about how Steve became a pilot, why regional airlines have such young pilots, why the military fosters cockiness in their pilots and where is some hairy places to land. Craig also learns that Steve has a very narrow view on what “dangerous” really means and how close a “close call” must be before Steve even thinks it’s a problem.
The stories in “Wheels Up” are not made up. They are the real deal true antics of a jet age pilot in the high-octane environment of the cockpit. Some will give you pause and make you think, some will knock the wind out of you, and some will make you throw your head back and laugh. From the hallowed halls of The Citadel to the sometimes dark skies of Vietnam to the pranks and high jinks of a game-faced pilot, Captain Steve Taylor will fly you to places few have seen.
