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.

The Statue Of Innovation

There should be a statue of Robin Raskin in front of the Sands Expo and Convention Center in Las Vegas with an inscription that says “She turned this arena into a global stage for the introduction of some of the most innovative products in the world.” As founder of the company “Living In Digital Times,” Robin solicited early stage companies to exhibit their remarkable inventions in this section of CES. She grouped them in sensible product categories for their debut: Digital Health, Digital Money, Fitness Tech, Baby Tech, Family Tech, Transforming EDU, MommyTech TV, Beauty Tech, and Wearables. Each area had their own summit plus events. These companies also take part in other events during the week of CES including a FashionWare runway show, Mobile Apps Showdown, Last Gadget Standing, Robots on the Runway and the KAPi Awards. In this episode of “Lying on the Beach” with TV personality Steve Greenberg and PR expert Lois Whitman-Hess, Robin explains how she manages to be at the forefront of technology all the time.

It’s Called A Press Event, Let’s Keep It That Way

Young influencers take over press event.

More and more journalists are talking about not attending certain press parties and conferences because the focus is no longer on them. The rooms are now filled with way too many “here today, gone tomorrow,” social media influencers. They are the ones who are getting “first class” accessibility to new products and scoops.    Watch out corporate America and event planners. If you keep treating editorial writers and broadcasters like second class citizens, you will find yourselves without high profile coverage. TV personality Steve Greenberg and PR rep Lois Whitman discuss the dilemma.

Three Identical Strangers

Everyone who sees “Three Identical Strangers,” a documentary about a set of triplets who were adopted and unknowingly separated at birth, gets into a debate with others about whether “nature or nurture” were forces that made them the men they are today. None of the men, nor their families,  knew about the others for 19 years.

Steve Greenberg and Lois Whitman-Hess, hosts  of the “Lying on the Beach” podcast, have been searching for the answer to that question ever since they saw Director Tim Wardle’s documentary a few days ago. They don’t want to spoil the story for you but they will say a happy reunion turns into an unfortunate upset. You start to question your life, and wonder how you would have reacted if you were one of the triplets: Robert Shafran, Edward Galland, and David Kellman.

Steve is a monthly tech contributor to NBC’s Today Show and morning TV newscasts around the country. Lois is a co-owner of HWH PR, a leading PR agency in the tech and entertainment  business.
