Millennials and Baby Boomers in the Workplace (0:00:00) We’re used to dealing with generational gaps in the home—whether it’s grandma struggling to understand why her grandson’s YouTube channel is a big deal, or dad trying to get his kids to appreciate the music he loved so much in high school—its apart of life. But what about generational gaps in the workplace? While baby boomers and millennials seem constantly at odds with each other, our guest today sees it differently. So how can baby boomers and millennials find enough common ground to communicate and cooperate with each other? Here to talk us through it is Bob Fisch, featured ForbesBooks author of "Fisch Tales: The Making of a Millennial Baby Boomer" and founder of Rue 21. Parenting Different Kids (0:15:57) Any parent who has more than one kid will testify that no kid is born the same. Your first might be introverted and responsible, and your second wild and argumentative. And let’s not even get started on the third or fourth children. Just trying to live in peace together as these kids grow up is a challenge in and of itself, but as a parent you feel responsible to teach yourkids the skills necessary tothrive regardless of their personality. So how can parents adapt to individual personalities and help each kid reach their full potential? Betsy Brown Braun, author of "Just Tell Me What to Say: Sensible Tips and Scripts for Perplexed Parents," joins us to show parents that it is possible to raise all their kids, even with all these crazy personalities. Personal Style (0:35:31) Carrie Ann Rhodes talks with Lisa about how we can establish our own personal style and when we can know if it's time to make a change. Technology and Kids (0:50:38) Phones and technology are a blessing in so many ways. They have the ability to help us stay involved, connected and informed. But when those great tools are in the hands of our kids, they can potentially become dangerous. The internet is a space that kids enter by themselves, even if you’re in the room with them, so what can we do to make sure they’re using it in a safe and responsible way? Here to talk us through it is Arlene Pellicane, speaker and author several books including "Calm, Cool, and Connected: 5 Digital Habits for a More Balanced Life." Monster Mash: Vampires (1:07:23) Welcome to our Monday Monster Mash! Every Monday this month, we’re going to be doing a little deep dive into the creepiest monsters of Halloween. This week our monster guest is pale, haunting, and wants to suck your blood...You guessed it—vampires! From Bram Stoker’s Dracula, to Edward and Bella, it seems like vampires have always been a large part of some of our favorite piece of pop culture. But where does the legend originate and what keeps pulling us back in? Here to help us understand both a little bit more about the history and science behind this, is Dr. Frank McAndrew, social psychologist and creep expert. UFOs (1:16:52) There are some things out there that are just unexplainable. One of these phenomenathat many people love to zero in on is the conspiracy of UFOs. This field of the unusual is so compelling that many scientists have devoted their lives to study it. So where did the history of the Unidentified Flying Object begin? Why have these stories of abduction and aliens enraptured our culture? Here to discuss the history of the UFO and its cultural impact is the author of "Conspiracy Films: A Tour of Dark Places in the American Conscious," Barna Donovan. Motivation Momen: Avoiding Distractions (1:21:56) Author and motivational speaker Michelle McCullough explains to Lisa and Richie what we can do to avoide distractions and stay focused even on the hardest days.
