    The Ex-Wife of Convicted Sex Felon Spencer Herron Investigates the Real Story of Her Seemingly Perfect Husband and Grapples with Years of Astonishing Infidelities"Betrayal" available on iHeartRadio and All Major Podcast Platforms. Glass Podcasts, a division of the award-winning Glass Entertainment Group (GEG), and iHeartMedia, the No. 1 podcast publisher globally according to Podtrac, announced the launch of its eight-part true-crime podcast series Betrayal. The first two episodes dropped April 28, and will continue with weekly installments every Thursday. Betrayal is distributed by the iHeartPodcast Network and is available on iHeartRadio and all major podcast platforms.A real-life fairytale gone horribly wrong; Betrayal is the story of TV producer Jenifer Faison whose picture-perfect marriage completely shatters in the blink of an eye when she suddenly discovers that her college sweetheart-turned-doting husband is not the person she thought he was. After seven years of marriage, Faison came home from work one afternoon to find her house searched and her husband arrested for the continued sexual assault of a student.The series unravels the case of convicted sexual predator and two-time Kell High School 'Teacher of the Year' Spencer Herron, who plead guilty to six counts of sexual assault of a former Cobb, Georgia student. Presently serving six concurrent sentences, Herron's crimes began when the sexual assault victim was in high school. Interviewing the now 21-year-old college student who survived numerous sexual assaults at the hands of her husband, Faison attempts to learn about the man she thought she loved.In Betrayal, Faison investigates the hidden story behind the story, revealing a dark double life fueled by dozens often sordid and simultaneous affairs with friends, neighbors and strangers, dating back to the week they were married. Throughout the podcast, Jenifer painstakingly pieces together evidence, including texts, photos and letters from prison. She speaks with friends, family and several of the other women Herron was intimately involved with, some of whom she knew personally. Each woman eerily described the same manner of manipulation and gaslighting Spencer deployed to justify his philandering. Faison even speaks to Spencer himself.Blindsided and bewildered by the betrayal and pathological lies, Faison must contend with the sinister truth: Her seemingly ideal husband carefully crafted his public persona to hide his inner demons, painting himself as the revered teacher and beacon of his small-town community, located just 20 miles northwest of Atlanta. "Spence was the last person who I ever would have guessed would have taken advantage of a kid, and I think anybody else who knew him would have said the same thing," said Faison. "Could it be true that this man I loved was a sexual predator? I realized that afternoon that life as I knew it would never be the same. The future that we planned was gone, and that was the last time I had seen him.""Betrayal is the ultimate cautionary tale of what could go wrong with blind faith," says Nancy Glass, Executive Producer of the series and CEO of Glass Entertainment Group. "Jenifer is just like anyone else; she built a life on love, trust and respect, but she had no idea what was concealed beneath the surface of her immaculate marriage. There were never any clues nor any reason to believe her world could come crashing down. This is the story of a woman living in the aftermath of the worst-possible scenario and her road to healing." Glass Podcast's Head of Podcast Production and Development, Andrea Gunning, voices Betrayalalongside Faison. The series is Executive Produced by Nancy Glass and Jenifer Faison with Carrie Hartman and Ben Fetterman producing for Glass Podcasts. Glass Podcasts is overseen by Gunning, and Ben Fetterman, who serves as Head of Podcast Strategy and Development.

    CNN senior political analyst & White House advisor to four Presidents David Gergen

    New York Times-best selling author David Gergen - White House adviser to four presidents of different parties, CNN senior political analyst, and founder of the Center for Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School - presents an inspiring and practical guide for emerging young leaders as well as seasoned change makers. In HEARTS TOUCHED WITH FIRE: How Great Leaders are Made (Simon & Schuster; May 10, 2022; 978-1-9821-7057-8; $29.00 hardcover), he draws on vivid examples from personal experience, history and recent headlines - from Churchill to AOC and dozens more across the public landscape - to shine a light on pathways forward. Gergen describes himself as a short-term pessimist but a long-term optimist. The next several years are likely to be rough in America, he believes, but the long-term outlook holds much greater promise. Our prospects for success, he argues, now rest heavily upon preparing rising generations for lives of service and leadership. As a White House adviser to Presidents Nixon, Ford, Reagan and Clinton, Gergen gathered invaluable lessons on leadership that he has shared for more than two decades with students at the Harvard Kennedy School. But he has long hoped to write a book that would spread those lessons more widely. In the past few years, that dream has taken on greater urgency, with growing threats to democracy at home and abroad. "Who would have believed," Gergen writes, "that for the first time since the Civil War, we would begin tearing ourselves apart? Who would have imagined that our democracy - and long-standing democratic traditions across the world - might be on the brink of collapse? But here we are. It feels as if we are driving on the side of a cliff in the middle of the night with our lights out. We all know it, but we cant seem to stop it." A Historic Passing of the Torch What we are witnessing, he notes, is an historic passing of the torch from Baby Boomers and the Silent Generation to Millennials and Gen Zers. The latter two generations, born between 1982 and 2009, are the biggest and diverse cohort in our history - and will soon be the most powerful. They have faced profound challenges in just the first two decades of the 21st century - including terrorism, deep recessions, climate disasters, racial and gender inequities, a deadly global pandemic and a poisonous polarization of our politics. The Millennials and Gen Zers are changing the face of leadership in many ways. Gergen shows how in the journeys of climate activist Greta Thunberg, the Parkland students fighting for gun sanity, Pakistani female education advocate Malala, and the organizers of the MeToo and Black Lives Matter movements. They are leading from the bottom up as well as the top down, skillfully using the power of social media and protest marches. Their experiments in leadership have brought out the biggest numbers in history in protests over women's rights, racial equity, voter suppression, gun rights and gay rights. Even as ways to exercise leadership are evolving, Gergen points out, some qualities and skills remain eternal. Courage and character, for example, have been prerequisites for great leadership through millennia, from the classical Greeks and Romans down to Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine. Gergen worked early in the White House for both Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. Both had courage but the first lacked character and was driven out by scandal; the second was a man of character who looks better and better through the rear view mirror. The Leader's Journey: Inner and Outer Gergen begins with a consideration of some of the most profound questions in understanding leadership. Does leadership really matter, after all? Why do we need great leaders? What are their most important qualities or traits? Why, in our society, has leadership largely been restricted in the past to white men? How can we best accelerate the spread of diversity? Gergen then describes the development of a leader in two parts: an inner journey and an outer journey. An effective leader, he argues, must first become self-aware and then achiever self-mastery. It is not enough just to be smart and talented. You must be able to master yourself before you can serve others. Your inner work should help you identify your core values and your True North. In sum, Gergen tells us how to become "author of your own life", as leadership guru and dear friend Warren Bennis puts it. Unfortunately, almost every rising leader suffers from harsh, unexpected blows - crucibles as they are called in leadership circles. They can take many shapes and forms, and they can destroy your professional as well as personal life. Yet with the right outlook, grit and perseverance, some of our most celebrated leaders have emerged stronger from such hardships. Crucibles also have the potential to instill in us great moral purpose and an opportunity to solidify our goals. As a rising leader conquers her inner journey, they must also make a transition from internal preparation to rubbing up against the outside world. In this outer journey, you must learn how to lead up, down and sideways - managing your boss, building your team, collaborating with others outside your team. Then again, how do you find a mentor? Or a sponsor? What's the difference between them? Importantly, how can you master the arts of public persuasion and deeply social media? As journey towards leadership isn't completed overnight; most fine it the work of a lifetime. Leadership in Action As the leader's inner and outer journeys converge, leadership must be put into action. You do not become a good leader, Gergen says, by studying under a lamp or earning a third or fourth academic degree. You must be "in the arena," as Theodore Roosevelt famously put it. Gergen explains why leaders must learn to lead in a crisis-making time to prepare when they can, then acting smartly when the crisis hits. Conversely, he also looks at the darkness that can descend when a leader abandons their True North and self-destructs. Finally, Gergen incorporates three of his favorite, but often overlooked, aspects of leadership: learning from history, a wicked sense of humor, and the creation of an integrated life so you have joy as well as passion. In addition, he appends a list of twenty key takeaways-an executive summary for people on the run-including such items as: Have Three Objectives Early, You're Never Too Young to Lead, and Maintain a Celestial Spark.In HEARTS TOUCHED WITH FIRE, David Gergen shares vital lessons on leadership gained from his remarkable half century in the public arena. It is not only a fitting graduation gift, but also a powerful assurance that we have every reason to be hopeful about the future if we remember who we are, take heart from the past, and unleash the idealism of today's passionate young leaders. ABOUT DAVID GERGEN David Gergen has devoted more than half a century to public service. Coming off a Navy stint, he served as a White House adviser to four US presidents of both parties: Nixon, Ford, Reagan, and Clinton. He recounted those experiences in a New York Times bestseller, Eyewitness to Power. In the 1980s, he began a second career, serving as the editor of US News & World Report and for five years a regular Friday night partner with Mark Shields as a PBS commentator on McNeil/Lehrer. Since 1999, he has served as a professor of public service and founding director of the Center for Public Leadership at Harvard's Kennedy School. For more than two decades, he has also been a senior political analyst for CNN, where he is a respected voice in national and international affairs.Book Available on Amazon:https://www.amazon.com/Hearts-Touched-Fire-Great-Leaders/dp/1982170573

Who hopes for what they already have? 25 But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God's people in accordance with the will of God.28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.Recovering your Harvest of Grace Outreach Ministry is focused on those on the margins of society—homeless individuals and prisoners.

    To any outsider, D. Neil Elliott was highly educated, owned a profitable consulting firm, and had a successful career and an amazing wife and family. But things were not all they seemed to be … Neil was facing a lot of challenges. In a phrase, he was in a dark place. Quite by accident, he discovered a Higher Road. As he traveled that road, he found the key to transforming his life. Over the course of the following year, Neil lifted himself to an inner state of love, peace, joy, and abundance. His perspectives on life changed entirely. His troubles and tribulations were his impetus to find the key that enabled him to revolutionize his life. He learned that the search for a better life does not entail positive thinking, saying affirmations, chanting mantras, or traveling to India to sit at the feet of a guru—or any other popularized method of “finding yourself.” …The key? To ascend in both spiritual perception and truth, you need to use the right process to break through your entrenched, human-ego barriers. For nearly three decades, Neil read hundreds of self-help and spiritual books and took self-development courses. All of them offered hope for change and improvement, but nothing fulfilled his needs or genuinely delivered on its promises. Neil's desire—and his new mission in life—is to share the knowledge he gained and the process he used on his journey to self-awareness, together with the blueprint document he discovered that was instrumental in transforming his life. He wants to give you, regardless of your station in life, the tools and opportunity to empower yourself, transform your life, and draw peace, joy, love, and prosperity into your personal situation and environment. Neil believes that as more and more people follow this Higher Road to true spiritual perfection, a New Era of Love and Peace will dawn for everyone throughout the world.Get the Book:https://www.amazon.com/Higher-Road-Consciousness-Transcend-Spiritually/dp/1777717256/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1632224622&sr=8-1https://www.dneilelliott.com/the-bookhttps://www.linkedin.com/in/neil-elliott/https://www.facebook.com/DNeilElliott/https://www.instagram.com/dnelliott64/https://twitter.com/realNElliott

The book chronicles Chef Rush's fight against poverty, racism, gender norms, and PTSD to become a master sergeant, celebrity chef, and a leading advocate for mental health awareness and suicide prevention among active US military members and veteran's organizations.Chef Rush became an overnight sensation in 2018 after a photograph of his now-famous 24-four-inch biceps--the by-product of 2,222 daily push-ups--went viral. From his childhood working on a farm, to developing into a gifted athlete and artist, to his joining the Army, Chef Rush has dedicated his life to serving others. During his 24-year military career, his reputation as an award-winning cook eventually led him to the White House, where he served under four United States presidents¬--Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, Barack Obama and most recently, Donald Trump.On September 11, 2001, Chef Rush was working at the Pentagon when American Airlines Flight 77 hit the building during the 9/11 terrorists' attacks. This event led to his suffering from PTSD and compelled him to become an outspoken advocate for the military and especially for wounded warriors."This book will take you on an almost unbelievable sequence of events - each chapter leading to something different and more mind blowing than the last," says Rush. "I wrote this memoir to tell a story that was never meant to be told, and in doing so, I realized that I had to tell this to inspire, empower, teach, and educate on a worldwide platform across all races, genders, religions, beliefs, as we are all the same."Every step of the way, Chef Rush has overcome tremendous obstacles, including battling stereotypes and racism. In this memoir, he shares not only his wounds and what he experienced along the road to recovery but also the optimism, hope, and hard-earned wisdom that have encouraged countless others."My challenge to the reader is to take a moment and stop, look at where you are in life, and then keep moving forward," explains Chef Rush. "Once you get to the top of life's mountains, turn around and help someone else."Rush adds: "Entitlement is huge in today's world, and my hope is that through self-reflection, gratitude, and humbleness, we can put down our entitlements and understand how blessed we are and realize how much we can help others who are struggling. We cannot forget that people are the most important thing in a culture where media, politics and personal agendas often outweigh decency."ABOUT CHEF ANDRE RUSHChef Andre Rush is a retired decorated combat Veteran known worldwide as the White House chef with the 24-inch biceps and for his advocacy for military service, as well as suicide prevention, which is why he does 2,222 push-ups a day: to bring awareness to the ongoing epidemic of mental health and suicidal ideation.Chef Rush uses food as medicine and therapy to helping military overcome depression, anxiety, PTSD, with a method called "Cooking to Cope." He is the founder of 2,222 INC, a 501(c)3 which mentors, supports, teaches, educates, and empowers youth in unreasonable circumstances with the support of military, first responders, and influential men and women from different backgrounds.Get The Book:https://www.amazon.com/Call-Me-Chef-Dammit-Veterans/dp/0785249451

To commemorate these two significant anniversaries, acclaimed author Kostya Kennedy has written the most interesting and unique biography of Jackie to date in his new book, TRUE: The Four Seasons of Jackie Robinson (St. Martin's Press, on sale April 12, 2022, $29.99).Whereas all-time greats like Ted Williams, Babe Ruth and Joe DiMaggio captured the eye of fans everywhere, Jackie Robinson became the epitome of a new America. It was not just that he opened doors for black Americans to play major league baseball. Rather, his reach extended to black Americans being able to participate in other sports. And more importantly, beyond the fields of play he helped open doors and shine a light on black people in non-athletic professions. With each accomplishment on the baseball diamond - and, indeed, for years after his career ended - he became an important national figure who spoke and wrote eloquently about racial injustice and inequality.What makes this book unique? Instead of day-to-day accounts of Jackie's first year breaking the color line, or a recap of his legendary career, TRUE examines Robinson's impact on sport and society from the lens of four non-consecutive transformative years of his life:1946 - his first year playing in the minor leagues with the Montreal Royals1949 - the year he won the Most Valuable Player Award in his third season with the Brooklyn Dodgers1956 - his final season in major league baseball, when he played valiantly despite his physical struggle with diabetes1972 - the year of his untimely passingThrough vivid prose and interviews with Robinson's family, players, and fans who witnessed and felt his impact, the author offers a new look at Jackie Robinson: the player, father, husband, and just as importantly, civil rights hero. To this date, half a century since his passing, his widow, Rachel, and the Robinson family continue to receive myriad letters expressing admiration for Robinson's courage in the face of the racial animosity he endured while playing. What's more, they express admiration and thanks for what Jackie did and meant to them as they carved out their own lives and careers, achieving respect and accomplishments in a country that seemed to be closed off for so many.TRUE will establish a new view on the life of Jackie Robinson in ways not even the most devout fans of his amazing career considered. Kostya Kennedy's previous books on the complicated life of Pete Rose and the meaning of Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak both shone a new light on these players. He has done it again with the most interesting and unique take yet written on the life and meaning of Jackie Robinson.ABOUT KOSTYA KENNEDYKostya Kennedy is an editorial director at Dotdash Meredith, and former senior writer at Sports Illustrated. He is a New York Times bestselling author of 56: Joe DiMaggio and the Last Magic Number in Sports (runner up for the 2012 PEN/ESPN Award for Literary Sports Writing) and Pete Rose: An American Dilemma. Both won the Casey Award for Best Baseball Book of the Year. He has taught at Columbia and NYU, and lives with his wife and children in Westchester County, NY.PRAISE FOR TRUE"This is a marvelous addition to the library on the ever-important, ever-enigmatic Jackie Robinson, one of the towering figures in the Civil Rights Movement. Kennedy has given us four remarkable 'snapshots' of Jackie at this most brave and vulnerable moment." --Ken Burns, filmmaker"True is a captivating reminder of Jackie Robinson's greatness not only as a baseball player and trailblazer, but also as a fearless activist for the equal rights and fair treatment of all people. Reading it, I said to myself time and again: "I wish I could have met him." --John Grisham"The 75th anniversary of the day Jackie Robinson became the first Black man to play in the Major Leagues is the perfect time to remember a great baseball player and an even greater American. Kostya Kennedy's True tells Robinson's story beautifully, a sweeping narrative rich in detail and full of riveting and important stories that should be told and retold for generations." --Christine Brennan, USA Today sports columnist and bestselling author of Inside Edge.

    ABOUT AMERICAN REBOOTFrom former Republican Congressman and CIA Officer Will Hurd, a bold political playbook for America rooted in the timeless ideals of bipartisanship, inclusivity, and democratic values.It's getting harder to get big things done in America. The gears of our democracy have been mucked up by political nonsense. To meet the era-defining challenges of the 21st century, our country needs a reboot.In American Reboot, Hurd, called "the future of the GOP" by Politico, provides a clear-eyed path forward for America grounded by what Hurd calls pragmatic idealism-a concept forged from enduring American values to achieve what is actually achievable.Hurd takes on five seismic problems facing a country in crisis: the Republican Party's failure to present a principled vision for the future; the lack of honest leadership in Washington, DC; income inequality that threatens the livelihood of millions of Americans; US economic and military dominance that is no longer guaranteed; and how technological change in the next thirty years will make the advancements of the last thirty years look trivial. Hurd has seen these challenges up close. A child of interracial parents in South Texas, Hurd survived the back alleys of dangerous places as a CIA officer. He carried that experience into three terms in Congress, where he was, for a time, the House's only Black Republican, representing a 71 percent Latino swing district in Texas that runs along 820 miles of US-Mexico border. As a cyber security executive and innovation crusader, Hurd has worked with entrepreneurs on the cutting edge of technology to anticipate the shockwaves of the future.Hurd draws on his remarkable experience to present an inspiring guide for America. He outlines how the Republican party can look like America by appealing to the middle, not the edges. He maps out how leaders should inspire rather than fearmonger. He forges a domestic policy based on the idea that prosperity should be a product of empowering people, not the government. He articulates a foreign policy where our enemies fear us and our friends love us. And lastly, he charts a forceful path forward for America's technological future.We all know we can do better. It's time to hit "ctrl alt del" and start the American Reboot.ABOUT WILL HURDWill Hurd is a former member of Congress, cybersecurity executive, and officer in the CIA. For two decades he's been involved in the most pressing national security issues challenging the country whether it was overseas in dangerous places, boardrooms of international businesses or the halls of Congress. Will is a native of San Antonio and graduate of Texas A&M University. He is a trustee of the German Marshall Fund, board member of OpenAI, and managing director at Allen & Company.

The ongoing pandemic has given us all the opportunity to examine what really matters most to us and what brings us true contentment. Each week through candid conversations with friends, thought leaders, creators, and entrepreneurs, Bobbi and Anjali are looking for ...www.iheart.comBOBBI BROWN BIOEven as a young girl, Bobbi Brown was enthralled by makeup. "I remember watching my mother apply her white eye shadow and black liner in her blue gilded bathroom--she was glamorous, but fresh-looking." And as soon as she was able to work, Bobbi raced to the small cosmetics store in town, where she got her first taste of formal training.Bobbi's education continued at Boston's Emerson College, where she earned a B.F.A. in theatrical makeup. Upon graduation, she moved to New York City to make it as a professional makeup artist. She showed her ever-growing portfolio to anyone who would look at it, slowly built up contacts and experienced the challenges typical of most freelance makeup artists trying to make it in Manhattan. But despite the ups and downs, her talent and drive earned her coveted gigs with top magazines, photographers and models. Bobbi began her collaboration with photographers Bruce Weber and Arthur Elgort for American Vogue, as well as with the late Francesco Scavullo for Cosmopolitan and Self. A seven-page spread of full-face beauty shots of supermodel Tatiana Patitz--shot by Wayne Maser--also put Bobbi's work front and center.Bobbi's big breakthrough was her first American Vogue cover. The image was shot by famed photographer Patrick Demarchelier and featured the soon-to-be-supermodel Naomi Campbell, made up by Bobbi Brown. Seven years after arriving to New York City knowing no one, Bobbi was part of the club. The industry took notice.As a successful makeup artist with access to everything in the market, Bobbi found nearly all products looked too artificial, making it impossible to create a gorgeous, no-makeup look.Ten years into her freelance career, a chance meeting with a chemist at a magazine photo shoot changed everything. "I had the idea to create a lipstick that didn't smell, wasn't dry or greasy and looked like lips, only better--and I told the chemist about it," she says.The chemist made the lipstick following Bobbi's unprecedented specifications and the result was Brown Lip Color, a pinky-brown shade. Nine other brown-based lipstick shades followed soon after, and Bobbi's set of lipsticks was complete.In 1991, her 10 lipsticks debuted at the Bergdorf Goodman under the name of Bobbi Brown essentials. Bobbi was expecting to sell 100 in a month. She sold 100 within the first day.The message was clear: women wanted makeup that was simple, flattering and wearable. Word spread quickly. Bobbi's unique approach to cosmetics was a long-awaited gift for women who wanted a more natural look. The magazine industry's most prominent beauty editors got behind Bobbi, and her small, insider brand garnered big time buzz.The range expanded beyond lipstick. Bobbi's foundations were yellow-based, not pink, revolutionizing face makeup as it's known today. And, before long, she showed that she was as adept at neutrals as she was at bright and bold colors.This sea change in the beauty market caught the attention of cosmetics empire Estee Lauder, who bought Bobbi Brown Cosmetics in 1995, just four years after the company's inception. Today, Bobbi Brown retains creative control of the brand.In addition to running her company, Bobbi continues to pursue her craft by creating the runway looks for New York Fashion Week. A permanent fixture backstage, she works with the industry's best designers including Rachel Roy, J. Mendel, Erin Fetherston, Tory Burch and Cynthia Rowley.Bobbi often does how-to segments on The Today Show and The Oprah Winfrey Show, and her advice can be found in syndicated columns and advice features for magazines and websites around the globe.Of course, you can always find Bobbi where she began--on the set. Bobbi is still the world's most celebrated makeup artists for personalities and fashion magazines.A New York Times best-selling author, Bobbi has written several instructional and engaging beauty and lifestyle books, including: Bobbi Brown Beauty, Bobbi Brown Teenage Beauty, Bobbi Brown Beauty Evolution, Bobbi Brown Living Beauty and Bobbi Brown Makeup Manual.For Bobbi, making other people's lives better simply makes sense. "I love helping others because it feels good," she says.
