Many of us worry that our child may not be securely attached. How can we understand the science behind attachment to better understand our kids and their needs? And how do we promote a secure attachment?   Joining me for this conversation is Bethany Saltman, author of Strange Situation: A Mother's Journey Into the Science of Attachment. It's inspired by the birth of her daughter in 2006, who she loved dearly, but feared she was failing.    Why? Because she was not the kind of mother she hoped to become. Bethany spent ten years teaching herself the science of attachment, traveling to labs, trainings, and archives, in an effort to try to discover what kind of mother she really was, and if she was good enough for her daughter.   What she learned changed everything about how she thought of herself, her childhood, and the nature of love.   We go into: [2:25] Different attachment styles and why they're important [6:00] Where secure attachment comes from [13:35] The power of attachment and repair  [14:20] Why people make such a big deal about attachment styles [24:10] What Bethany learned through healing her insecure attachment style [27:40] Advice Bethany would give to her younger parent self  Strange Situation: A Mother's Journey Into the Science of Attachment, published in April, 2020 by Random House, is her first book.    Bethany is a bestselling book coach, helping writers envision and execute their books—from pitch, to platform, to proposal, to publication, to PR. , She is also an editor and researcher.

Chelsea Clinton disappoints in the finale of 'Derry Girls' in this week's edition of one of the world's most popular entertainment podcasts. Host Neal Pollack begins with a five-minute discourse on the absurdity of members of the "literary community" calling upon Random House to not publish the new Amy Coney Barrett memoir. They call it a "human rights violation." This is absurdity at its highest level, Stalinist garbage. Neal tells them where they can stick their "duty of care."Then Rachel Llewellyn stops by to lighten the mood by talking to Neal about the ridiculous Chelsea Clinton cameo at the end of 'Derry Girls.' Rachel found it annoying, but in general she thought the third and final season of Derry Girls was stretching the joke a bit thin. But they could have been on top if only they hadn't given Chelsea Clinton the final scene.Next our podcast welcomes the host of three other podcasts, Margo Donohue, the author of the new book 'Filmed In Brooklyn'. We liked her print interview with us so much that we invited her along to talk about Brooklyn movies again. Neal and Margo talk about 'The French Connection,' 'Saturday Night Fever,' 'Do the Right Thing', and 'Smoke,' alongside other Brooklyn films.Finally it's Stephen Garrett time again. Stephen seemed to like 'Armageddon Time' from James Gray pretty well, though he and Neal nearly come to blows over whether or not Charlie Hunnam (who starts in another James Gray movie) is a good actor. He is not. But Armageddon Time is warm and heartfelt.You can't say the same for 'Triangle of Sadness,' a vicious anti-capitalist satire that got a standing ovation and a Palme D'Or from all the rich socialists at the Cannes Film Festival. Neal and Stephen agree it's a film to be admired, not enjoyed. Stephen found the satire obvious. Neal liked the performances, especially Dolly DeLeon as a put-upon maid who takes her revenge.As always, our podcast has range. Enjoy the show!

Difficult Conversations -Lessons I learned as an ICU Physician

Welcome to Difficult Conversations with Dr. Anthony Orsini. Today, I have a wonderful guest who's been doing great things in the healthcare field and has some wonderful stories to share.  My guest today is Jeff Atwood.  Jeff is a healthcare leader, author, and speaker who has more than twenty-five years of healthcare leadership, marketing, and storytelling experience. He consults with healthcare and community groups nationally, sharing insights and encouragement found at the crossroads during his two decades serving healthcare organizations, while raising a daughter with significant and developmental challenges. Jeff's books have been published by Simon & Schuster, Random House, and Harvest House, and today we'll be talking about his latest book, Need to Know for Graduates: Little Things That Make a Big Difference, which was released earlier this year. Jeff shares his journey and how he entered a career in healthcare by accident.  He tells us about his daughter who has had a seizure disorder her entire life, and how he and his wife had the opportunity to touch almost every part of the healthcare system as parents. We hear about the Gratitude Symposium and Jeff shares a sweet story, as well as his thoughts about how the healthcare community is wired with gratitude. Dr. Orsini shares his insights on the importance of teamwork when it comes to providing care to human beings, and we hear some great stories of the true kindness of people in healthcare  We hear some great advice about how we can bring even more beauty and humanity out in medicine, and why acknowledging  people when they do good things is so important.  Dr. Orsini tells us his “sticker story” and why such a simple thing seems to bring so much excitement to people. He tells a tender story about a housekeeper in the Neonatal ICU. Jeff's discusses his most recent book, Need to Know for Graduates: Little Things That Make a Big Difference, and his idea behind the book that shares advice and things he thinks are important for parents to tell their kids. He explains how as a parent you really need to be intentional with what's important and how you say it. Host:Dr. Anthony OrsiniGuest:Jeff AtwoodFor More Information:Difficult Conversations PodcastThe Orsini WayThe Orsini Way-FacebookThe Orsini Way-LinkedInThe Orsini Way-InstagramThe Orsini Way-Twitterdrorsini@theorsiniway.comIt's All In The Delivery: Improving Healthcare Starting With A Single Conversation by Dr. Anthony OrsiniResources Jeff Atwood (Email)Need to Know for Graduates: Little Things That Make a Big Difference by Jeff AtwoodNeed to Know for New Parents: Little Things That Make a Big Difference by Jeff Atwood

HOW TO BE AN OVERALL BADASS NAVY SEAL, ENTREPRENEUR & BESTSELLING AUTHOR BRANDON WEBB Brandon Webb is a combat-decorated Navy SEAL sniper turned entrepreneur. During his last tour as a U.S. Navy chief, he was head instructor at the SEAL sniper school, which produced some of America's most legendary snipers. Brandon is a multiple New York Times bestselling author, entrepreneur, and Harvard Business School alumni. After leaving home at 16 Brandon joined the US Navy to become a Navy SEAL. His first assignment was as a helicopter Search & Rescue swimmer with HS-6. In 1997 his SEAL training package was approved; he joined over 200 students in BUD/S class 215 and went on to graduate as one of 23 originals that made the cut. He served with SEAL Team 3, Naval Special Warfare Group One Training Detachment sniper cell, and the Naval Special Warfare Center west coast sniper course manager. Over his navy career he completed four deployments to the Middle East and one to Afghanistan. He deployed to Iraq in 2006–7 as a contractor in support of the US intelligence community. An accomplished and proven leader, he was meritoriously promoted to the rank of E6 when ranked #1 at the training command sniper cell.  Shortly after he was promoted to Chief Petty Officer while serving as the sniper course manager. Brandon has received numerous distinguished service awards, including Top Frog at Team 3 for best combat diver, the Presidential Unit Citation, and the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation medal with “V” device for valor in combat. He ended his navy career early to spend more time with his family and to focus on entrepreneurship and writing.  As an Entrepreneur Brandon crashed and burned his first start up in 2009, then went on to and create two brands: SOFREP Media (SOFREP.com) and Crate Club. He bootstrapped these to eight-figure revenue and successfully exited the Crate Club in 2020. He continues to oversee SOFREP Media as its founder.   SOFREP is a Military Culture, Defense & Foreign Policy News site read by millions monthly.  Webb is multiple New York Times bestselling author of nonfiction. In 2020 Brandon and his long-time writing partner, and award winning author, John David Mann, released their first collaborative work of fiction, STEEL FEAR. This has now turned into the Finn series with Random House which includes Cold Fear, and Blind Fear (2023 release).  Brandon studied at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and is a graduate of the Harvard Business School's 2-year Owner President program. He is a member of the Young Presidents Organization, and has served as an appointed member on the veterans advisory committee to the Small Business Administration (SBA).  He enjoys spending time with his tight circle of amazing kids, family and friends.

Bio Caroline Wright is a cook, writer and terminal brain cancer patient. During her undergraduate education in Paris, Caroline was inspired to turn a life-long interest and passion for food into a career. Caroline attended the La Varenne culinary program with Anne Willan in Burgundy, then started her career writing and styling recipes as a food editor for Martha Stewart's Everyday Food magazine, which folded in 2012. Her original recipes have appeared in a variety of national magazines since, including Cooking Light, Southern Living, Every Day with Rachael Ray, Real Simple and Health. While writing articles, she authored three cookbooks: Twenty Dollar, Twenty-Minute Meals (Workman 2013) and Cake Magic! (Workman 2016), two personal books that capture her fresh and friendly recipe style, plus another that transformed the recipes of a Catalan chef and restauranteur into home cooking, Catalan Food (Clarkson Potter 2018). Then, in 2017, Caroline was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. After her diagnosis, Caroline shifted her diet, started a vegan soup club for her friends in Seattle who cooked for her when she was sick. She began writing personal essays regularly about her cancer as it relates to food on her blog called “The Wright Recipes,” as well as on other major online publications including Food52, The Kitchn and Bon Appétit. She wrote a children's book for her sons about her enduring love, entitled “Lasting Love,” published by Rodale Kids (a Random House imprint) in August 2019, and has another children's series about baking by HarperCollins called Little Bakers that was released in Fall 2021.

A few years ago Anna Clark saw a series of paintings on a sandstone cliff face in the Northern Territory. There were characteristic crosshatched images of fat barramundi and turtles, as well as sprayed handprints and several human figures with spears. Next to them was a long gun, painted with white ochre, an unmistakable image of the colonisers. Was this an Indigenous rendering of contact? A work of history? Each piece of history has a message and context that depends on who wrote it and when. Australian history has swirled and contorted over the years: the history wars have embroiled historians, politicians and public commentators alike, while debates over historical fiction have been as divisive. History isn't just about understanding what happened and why. It also reflects the persuasions, politics and prejudices of its authors. Each iteration of Australia's national story reveals not only the past in question, but also the guiding concerns and perceptions of each generation of history makers.  Making Australian History is bold and inclusive: it catalogues and contextualises changing readings of the past, it examines the increasingly problematic role of historians as national storytellers, and it incorporates the stories of people.

A few years ago Anna Clark saw a series of paintings on a sandstone cliff face in the Northern Territory. There were characteristic crosshatched images of fat barramundi and turtles, as well as sprayed handprints and several human figures with spears. Next to them was a long gun, painted with white ochre, an unmistakable image of the colonisers. Was this an Indigenous rendering of contact? A work of history? Each piece of history has a message and context that depends on who wrote it and when. Australian history has swirled and contorted over the years: the history wars have embroiled historians, politicians and public commentators alike, while debates over historical fiction have been as divisive. History isn't just about understanding what happened and why. It also reflects the persuasions, politics and prejudices of its authors. Each iteration of Australia's national story reveals not only the past in question, but also the guiding concerns and perceptions of each generation of history makers.  Making Australian History is bold and inclusive: it catalogues and contextualises changing readings of the past, it examines the increasingly problematic role of historians as national storytellers, and it incorporates the stories of people. Anna Clark is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow at the Australian Centre for Public History at the University of Technology Sydney, where she also serves as an Associate Professor at the School of Communication. Her previous publications include: Teaching The Nation (University of Melbourne Press, 2006) and History's Children: History Wars in the Classroom (University of New South Wales Press, 2008). Benjamin Goh is a MPhil in World History Candidate at the University of Cambridge.

Publishing is weird right now, y'all. On the plus side, Condé-Nast has a union now! On the other hand, Random House is arguing in favor of its own managerial and strategic incompetence so they can be given more responsibility over publishing. This is a statement that makes sense.

Join Chris in a sit-down with the legendary Sandra Cisneros, author of the upcoming Woman Without Shame (Alfred A. Knopf), about passions, process, pitfalls, and poetry! From the Sandra Cisneros Website:  I was born in Chicago in 1954, the third child and only daughter in a family of seven children. I studied at Loyola University of Chicago (B.A. English, 1976) and the University of Iowa (M.F.A. Creative Writing, 1978). I've worked as a teacher and counselor to high-school dropouts, as an artist-in-the-schools where I taught creative writing at every level except first grade and pre-school, a college recruiter, an arts administrator, and as a visiting writer at a number of universities including the University of California, Berkeley, and the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. My books include a chapbook of poetry, Bad Boys (Mango Press, 1980); two full-length poetry books, My Wicked Wicked Ways (Third Woman Press, 1987; Random House, 1992) and Loose Woman (Alfred A. Knopf, 1994); a collection of stories, Woman Hollering Creek and Other Stories (Random House, 1991); a children's book, Hairs/Pelitos (Alfred A. Knopf, 1994); the novels The House on Mango Street (Vintage, 1991) and Caramelo (Knopf, 2002), and the picture book Have You Seen Marie? (Knopf 2012). A House of My Own: Stories from My Life (Alfred A. Knopf, 2015)  is a collection of personal essays, and Puro Amor (Sarabande 2018) is a bilingual story that I also illustrated. Forthcoming works include the Spanish and English story Martita, I Remember You/Martita te recuerdo (Vintage 2021) and a poetry collection, Mujer Sin Vergüenza (2022). --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app
