All shows air on Sunday nights at 6:00 p.m., PST, (that's Pacific Standard Time). If you're in a diff time zone and you need to figure out the time difference just Google "Time in Nevada," then figure out the difference.
The Case to Case Podcast is coming back for 2015, with a slight format and schedule change that differs from the past year. There are also changes to how you will be listening (and participating) that are quite different from before. For starters, I am now taking advantage of Google's Live Hangout system for broadcasting the podcast. That means guests can connect with webcams and microphones or just microphones and/or headsets to take part in the show.

Even though I felt like I knew what this mantra meant, I never really did until quite recently. It was like an epiphany: I'm really the only person responsible for my own happiness -- and ultimately, I'm responsible for my own unhappiness because I've allowed so much negativity to exist in my space.
Does this mean that I've been unhappy? Absolutely not! I just haven't been truly happy because I've allowed so much negativity in my life, in the forms of negative people and their negative energy. I've also held on to a lot of negative memories, thoughts and emotions that have had 31 years to build up and set residence in my spirit. I've been evicting those unwanted residents!
It's a journey, expelling the negativity from one's life. It involves closing …
