Rank #2: Lies my Teacher Told Me with James W. Loewen

Podcast cover
Read more
James W. Loewen is a regular contributor to the History Channel’s History magazine and is a professor emeritus of sociology at the University of Vermont. Professor Loewen shows after surveying eighteen leading high school American history texts, he has concluded that not one does a decent job of making history interesting or memorable. Marred by an embarrassing combination of blind patriotism, mindless optimism, sheer misinformation, and outright lies, these books omit almost all the ambiguity, passion, conflict, and drama from our past.

James Loewen’s gripping retelling of American history as it should, and could, be taught, Lies My Teacher Told Me, has sold more than 1,500,000 copies and continues to inspire K-16 teachers to get students to challenge, rather than memorize, their textbooks.ithin: Your Subconscious Mind is the distillation of 70 years of reading, studying, practicing, and teaching.

Podcast cover
Read more
Nutritionist Julie Daniluk hosts Healthy Gourmet on OWN (Oprah Winfrey Network), a reality cooking show that highlights the ongoing battle between taste and nutrition as unique groups – bikers, dragon boat racers, ballroom dancers – challenge their taste buds with nutritious foods. Julie is a health expert for The Marilyn Denis Show (CTV) and has appeared on numerous TV and radio shows, including The Dr Oz Show, CTV’s Breakfast TV, CP24‘s Wylde on Health and LisaLive Radio. Television viewers will also recognize Julie from her Busted segments on The Right Fit (OWN) where, acting as a nutrition encyclopedia, she examines the foods people need to stay healthy. Her fun and engaging style comes in handy creating recipes for Chatelaine Magazine that are packed with health tips.
After four years of rigorous theatre arts training, Julie found herself reading more about nutrition than about Shakespeare. She had an insatiable appetite for figuring out how and why food affects us so profoundly. She returned to school to become a nutritionist, graduating from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition, and becoming a cooperative owner of one of Canada’s largest health food stores, The Big Carrot Natural Food Market, as well as health editor for Viva Magazine, a natural health publication with a circulation over 120,000 coast-to-coast.
Julie’s food activism has led her to speak to Parliament about the potential health risks of genetically modified food, and in order to bring food advocacy issues to a wider audience, Julie has been the event producer for Bio-Diversity with David Suzuki and FoodShare’s Field to Table Festival. Julie’s search for nutritional understanding has taken her around the world and provided her one of her greatest joys to-date – cooking on Greenpeace’s tall sailing ship, Rainbow Warrior, during its GE-free New Zealand tour.

Rank #8: George Noory on the Kennedy Assassination and Other Plots

Podcast cover
Read more
Noory, along with Richard Belzer and David Wayne, released “Someone is Hiding Something: What Happened to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370?” in February 2015. Scrutinizing the theories the media and politicians claim are the “most likely” reasons the plane crashed, they argue that if a year after a huge Boeing 777 has gone missing, and there’s still no sign of it whatsoever, it’s time to think outside the box.

George Noory, host of the nationally syndicated program, Coast to Coast AM, says if he weren’t a national radio talk show host he’d be in politics. Heard by millions of listeners, Coast To Coast AM airs on approximately 564 stations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Guam.

Noory captivates program listeners with his discussions of paranormal phenomena, time travel, alien abductions, conspiracies and all things curious and unexplained. He is driven, he has said, by the desire to solve the great mysteries of our time. From his first days as a radio broadcaster he says, “I’ve wanted to cover stories that the mainstream media never touch—the unusual, the paranormal and things like that. I learned that broadcast was the best business for exploring these issues, and I’ve been doing it for 33 years.”
