Rick Riordan, COVID Secrets, Jeff Flake, Kids Got Talent, Weekend Review

The Lisa Show

Writing YA Fiction (0:00:00)I always like to hear about the books my kids are reading. Sometimes I’ll even read them myself! Even though I’m not the intended audience, I love a good young adult novel! Good novels can really transport you to any time, place—or world—no matter what the age range is. Here to shed a little light on how this magic happens is young adult author Rick Riordan. Rick is the author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and is wrapping up his latest series, “The Trials of Apollo,” this month with “The Tower of Nero.”COVID Secrets (0:37:53)“We all carry a secret that would break your heart if you just knew what it was. And if we could remember that, there might be more understanding and peace in the world.” These words were spoken by Frank Warren, the “most trusted stranger in America,” and the keeper of over one million anonymous secrets. For more than 15 years, people across the world have sent Frank their secrets via postcard, which he posts online weekly. And for more than 15 years, we have been able to see that our secrets don’t always isolate us like they think we do; rather, they connect us to humanity. Well today, we are thrilled to have Frank on the show to talk to us about the secrets that he has received during the COVID-19 pandemic, and what they teach us about humanity during this unique time.Civic Duty (0:52:50)With election day coming up, people are excited to exercise their civic duty and cast their votes for the presidential candidate of their choice. However, our civic duty goes farther than just voting in the presidential election once every 4 years. It includes voting in local elections, serving our community, and participating in the marketplace of ideas among many other things. So, what do we need to know to be an active and engaged American citizen? Because the country can’t function if we all don’t do our part. Joining us today to share his advice is former Senator of Arizona, Jeff Flake.Quarantine Kids Got Talent (1:15:07)Two seasons. Hundreds of Submissions. Collin could have never imagined his quarantine talent show would get so much publicity and interaction. Collin Kartchner is a social media activist public speaker, and founder of the organization hashtag Save the Kids. He can usually be found in public schools, educating children of all ages about the dangers and benefits of social media. But with complete shutdown of schools across the country, he decided to use his time hosting and judging Quarantine Kids Got Talent on Instagram. Here to tell us all about it is Collin Kartchner!Weekend Review (1:32:22)Lisa and Richie talk about what there is to do this weekend, whether we’re staying in and streaming new shows, or going out and staying socially distant.
