"Kari is a total pro. She put me at ease immediately and asked smart questions. She had clearly read my book with interest and care. Particularly with the dwindling print media devoted to books, the literary world is fortunate to have BookRadio."


-Janice Steinberg

"Wow! I have been blessed to be interviewed thousands of times by leading interviewers from all over the world, but very few have ever read so thoroughly and grasped the essence of my book as beautifully as you have. Your genius in questioning and intelligent grasping of content and meaning was mind blowing."

"What a pleasure to share airtime with Kari Moran on The Book Radio Show. Expect smart, engaging conversation with someone who has done her homework and loves what she does. Talking to Kari is like talking to a friend and sharing inside gems of helpful guidance. Her passion – to share that knowledge with her listeners is palpable."

"It was great to talk with Kari Moran for her BookRadio show and a real privilege to be invited to respond to properly challenging questions which ranged wide and delved deep, posed by someone who'd undertaken a 20:20 inspection of my novel, and to find myself entering into the best kind of book-chat. And, then I started listening to the archive of BookRadio interviews. What a delight!"

-Elanor Dymot

The Evolution of Judge and Jury


Morris Hoffman


morris hoffman


What drives our innate need to punish or forgive? It's not learned behavior according to Colorado Trial Judge and Law Professor Morris Hoffman. He tells Kari that Neuroscientists and Psychologists have pinpointed that our desire to punish lawbreakers of every stripe evolved over centuries as we banded together in a cooperative effort to survive and thrive. Eventually, as small groups evolved into larger societies, the moral and legal authority to seek retribution, punish or forgive was codified into what became our present legal systems. Judge Hoffman says that system, with its emphasis on incarceration, doesn't work consistently and he offers suggestions for effective reforms.





Chapter 2: Literary Fiction

A Novel


Garth Stein

Told through the lens of his great-great Grandson, Trevor, this is the story of the sometimes dark and complex history of Seattle Timber Baron Elijah Riddell and his descendants, a Pacific Northwest family shadowed by a ghostly legacy of greed and deceit that eventually spawns a host of family troubles. It's a story that centers on the relationship between fathers and sons and those who are paying a debt so deep, it impacts 4 generations and includes incest, suicide, murder...and redemption.

The New Art & Science Behind Enhanced Brain Performance


Majid Fotuhi, M.D., PhD.

With Christina Breda Antoniades

majid fotuhi


No matter what your age, you can improve your brain in a matter of weeks to enhance your memory, achieve greater mental clarity, and be more creative. Neurologist and Brain Center Founder Majid Fotuhi says, thanks to the brain's ability to grow new cells and enhanced circuitry, these improvements won't diminish, either. Your brain will actually restore itself to function as it did 5 to 10 years ago. Dr. Fotuhi's 12-week program can help you significantly improve your brain's performance to prevent "senior moments", reduce cognitive decline and the risk of late-life Alzheimer's disease. By walking 2 miles a day and getting at least 6 hours of sleep, you'll reduce the risk of Alzheimer's by 48%!
