Sam Roberts Introduces You To A New York You Never Knew

Sam Roberts is celebrating the 400th anniversary of New York City with  a new book called “A History of New York in 27 Buildings.”  Sam brings to light the brilliant architecture, remarkable history, and bright future of the greatest city in the world.  Sam looks at Grand Central Terminal, Empire State Building, and St. Paul’s Chapel. Other structures in his book show how municipal politics  aka corruption — impacted the rise of the department store, live theater and public housing. The book isn’t really about design, but how occupants have used these buildings over the years.   And you’ll learn why a spice shop on Lexington Ave is so important to US Presidential history. 

Sam Roberts is one of the New York Times best known journalists. He has worked there for decades. He is also the author of several books and has a major role in the new Roy Cohn documentary.  Sam interviewed Roy several times in the 1970’s and 80’s.  He learned a great deal about the Trump mentor and shares those insights during the film and with us on Lying on The Beach.  Join us.

It’s NEVER Too Late To Re-Invent Your Life

Loren Pomerantz is living the life so many of us dream of. At the age of 50, this New Yorker decided to give herself a gift that would change her life forever. She joined a travel network called “Remote Year” that allows you to connect with other professionals who together work and live like locals from four to 12 months in exciting cities around the world. 

Loren was at least 20 years older than most but that didn’t stop her blending into the group who were made up of people who live in different parts of the world and have jobs that allow them to work remotely in the digital age. Loren is a successful public relations agent who represents companies in a variety of fields.

Most of us can’t imagine what it would be like to experience the life Loren led two years ago. She is with us today to tell us all about it and how she has maintained this lifestyle on her own since the Remote Year ended. We are catching up with Loren in Stockholm where her evening is now our afternoon. Welcome Loren to Lying on the Beach.

Is Journalism Dead? Our podcast guest thinks it may not be dead, but it might be on life support

We would need this entire podcast to properly introduce our guest today on “Lying on the Beach.” For the last 40 years, Ray Elman, currently founding Editor in Chief of Inspicio, has been at the forefront of both the editorial and art worlds. Podcast Co-hosts, Steve Greenberg, a TV personality, and Lois Whitman-Hess, a PR counselor, interviewed Ray, about the state of journalism and why it’s not getting the respect it so richly deserve.

To appreciate the comments Ray is going to make you have to appreciate the quality work he has done in his career. In 2015, Ray founded the Inspicio arts publication platform, which is sponsored by FIU | CARTA.  Inspicio provides in-depth, high-quality insights into all arts disciplines with a focus on Miami and South Florida. The publication is famous for its video interviewing technique and for mixing famous authors with student writers.

Elman also co-founded Provincetown Arts magazine and Cincinnati Arts magazine. Ray was also a pioneer  in the digital communication industry, first as the National Director of Creative Services at Coopers & Lybrand (now PricewaterhouseCoopers) and as the co-founder of Streamline Communications, which is now a public company called Bridgeline Digital. He was also a founder of Cambria Interactive at Cambria Consulting.

In addition, Elman has sustained a successful life-time career as a visual artist. Four of his large scale mixed-media portraits (Pulitzer Prize recipients Stanley Kunitz, Jhumpa Lahiri, Alan Dugan, & U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky) are included in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery. His work is exhibited in museums, galleries and private collections all over the world.

Brian is the inventor of the Autoblow A.I. — the first device that uses artificial intelligence to imitate the sexual experience of—  a blow job.  That’s right—a Blow Job— I’ll bet that just got your attention —

(BTW— if you are under 18 years old— you shouldn’t be listening to this podcast)  

Brian Sloan has made this handy high tech gadget available to the public on Autoblow.com. A recent global crowdfunding effort by more than 5,500 men in 64 countries raised $755,000 to make the Autoblow a reality.

Sex toy inventor Brian Sloan graduated from law school in 2005, but decided he had a greater potential helping people masturbate than he did helping them with their legal problems.

TV personality and gadget maven Steve Greenberg and PR queen Lois Whitman Hess, Co-Hosts of “Lying on the Beach” podcast, talked to Brian about BJ’s and the Autoblow.

It’s a stimulating conversation with a happy ending.

Is “Hate” becoming the new normal? Writer Trish Posner talks about a world that keeps getting scarier

You know when they say you can’t judge a book by its cover? That couldn’t be more true when you meet Trisha Posner, the much respected British non-fiction writer, who lives in Miami Beach along with her very successful author husband Gerald Posner. They look like movie or Broadway stars. They are as fit as fit can be. They are very fashionable and they devote themselves to all kinds of causes.

It difficult to believe that the two of them spend most of their waking hours on research and writing. In recent years, Trisha dominated the headlines worldwide for a book she wrote on her own, The Pharmacist of Auschwitz: The Untold Story (2017). It’s one of the most important books to be published in recent times because it wakes everyone up to how a peaceful world can become a catastrophe in a short period of time.

Trisha is also the author of This is Not Your Mother’s Menopause: One Woman’s Natural Journey Through Change, and No Hormones, No Fear.

TV personality Steve Greenberg and PR expert Lois Whitman-Hess, co-hosts of “Lying on the Beach,” interviewed Trisha about changes in the world that we all should be aware of.

A Gay Reporter With A Gay Beat “Made America Gay Again”

Steve Rothaus – credit: The Miami Herald

It’s very possible that one day there is going to be a movie about Steve Rothaus. If we were smart we would buy the rights right now. He is a living legend. At the Miami Herald, he became (one of) the first dedicated LGBT mainstream journalists nearly 20 years ago. He probably was the first, but Rothaus is too modest to allow us to proclaim that.  Rothaus has been quoted as saying that he wanted “the Herald to be out front, ahead of all the other news organizations in South Florida in terms of how we covered the LGBT community and how we treated people.” TV personality Steve Greenberg, and PR expert Lois Whitman-Hess, of the Lying on the Beach podcast, talked to Steve about his remarkable barrier breaking career.
