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.

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.
