All PG-13, all fun. Episode 39’s guest, M.P. McVey, blogged this after our 8/26/15 conversation:

I was really nervous taking part in *CHANGES* with Sally Ember this morning. I had never done anything close to a live show, whether it be a television, internet, or radio program. There’s always that fear that you’ll say or do something unforgivable and that it would be caught in the moment and preserved for all time.

I’m sure that there are plenty of embarrassing moments in today’s episode, but Sally(being the perfect example of a professional) did an amazing job at keeping the show going, and making sure I didn’t totally freeze-up … except for one, embarrassing moment, which already has me laughing at myself. And thank you, Sally, for being such a sweet and intelligent person, I truly had an amazingly great time.

In today’s episode, we talked about writing(of course), but we also spoke about the science behind our stories and researching the actual, hard science. We also spoke about social change, and specifically gender roles in stories. I love conversations like these because I always walk away with some new nugget of thought, specifically the perspective of someone else.

Episode 14 (and 47)’s guest, John W. Howell, penned a “Johnku” after our conversation on 12/3/14 for Episode 14:

Quietly comes in,
Unsuspecting victim sits. . .
Ember’s brain kills ’em.

John and I talked it over and decided that my “killing” is done with the sword of my intellect, using more incisive wit than deadly force….Watch some Episodes, then, YOU decide! http://goo.gl/eX0D8T

CHANGES helps authors! Episode 7’s CHANGES guest, Nicholas Rossis, saw one of his books, The Power of Six, shoot to NUMBER ONE on Amazon the day after our show aired! Several other guests have reported upticks in their book sales, blog views and other interaction after being on CHANGES! Many have seen their stories or poems, books or plays nominated for and/or had their nominations become prizes and other accolades after a CHANGES appearance!
