Laughter helps. But sometimes it's hard to laugh, and despite being George's daughter, Kelly Carlin isn't all about comedy. Kelly returned to the show to talk about her new webinar on unplugging, mindfulness, meditation and a lot more. If you're inspired to join in, Kelly offered our listeners 20% off using the promo code FALL. We started the show with the latest on the GOP's efforts to kill our healthcare.

We're in the final stretch of the GOP's attempts to repeal & replace the Affordable Care Act for this fiscal year, and it's getting frightening.

Today's the day that Bernie Sanders introduces his Medicare for All Act of 2017, with 16 co-sponsors. Dave Johnson, former fellow at CAF, joins in to talk about how far we've come, and other good ideas that should be the way of our future.
We got very lucky. I live in Coral Springs, FL. It's Northwest Broward County, just east of Ft. Lauderdale. Thankfully Hurricane Irma only knocked down a bunch of tree limbs and took out some screen panels in our back yard over here, and we escaped unharmed. I wish the rest of the state could say the same! So, I was back on the air today to tell my Irma tale. Today is Tuesday. Our pal GottaLaff joins me every Tuesday to share some of the best Tweets she finds in her Tweet Spot. So today, we were back to business [...]
