(1) John J. Higgins & Barb Adams – The Dominoes are Beginning to Fall
Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, George Papadopoulos – the dominoes are beginning to fall. In a powerful opening salvo, Mueller has made it clear that he will go wherever the investigation leads him, including financial crimes unrelated to the campaign. Manafort and Gates were charged in a 12-count indictment with conspiracy to launder money, making false statements, conspiracy against the United States, and various charges in relation to their work in the Ukraine on behalf of a Russia-friendly political party. Papadopoulos plead guilty to making a false statement to the FBI about his contacts with foreigners claiming to have high-level Russian connections.
Papadopoulos was arrested in July and has been cooperating with federal authorities. His case is of special interest, as he may provide greater evidence of “collusion” between the Russian government and the Trump campaign. So who might be next and what does this mean for Trump and his administration? Marcy Wheeler, who runs the website EmptyWheel.net and is an independent journalist who covers national security and civil liberties, sees Papadopoulos’s indictment as “very, very bad news for Attorney Jeff Sessions.”
And let us not forget about Mike Flynn, Wilbur Ross, Carter Page, Jared Kushner, Donald Trump, Jr., the President himself, and others who possibly could be implicated.
Who will fall and who will be left standing?

(3) Robin Behrstock
Author and entrepreneur Robin Behrstock joins the show during the third hour to discuss her book, Adventures of Women Entrepreneurs: Stories That Inspire.
We often read about famous and inspiring entrepreneurs like Oprah Winfrey and Steve Jobs, but we rarely hear about the thousands of successful business owners all around us. They’re male, female, young, old, college educated, or lacking a degree. No matter the type, it’s almost certain they started with the desire to live life on their own terms.
Reading inspirational stories is great, but you must see in them that the positive outcome is something you too can attain. The individuals in Robin’s book are regular people who are easy to relate to, all from different backgrounds, and followed different paths to entrepreneurship. The hope is they inspire you to realize that you too can make your dreams a reality!
During the interview Robin will discuss her own path to entrepreneurship as well as what it takes to be successful at what you love to do.
Robin Behrstock has been starting businesses since she was a kid. Most of them were failures that became learning experiences. At the age of 33, it all paid off when she started a copper mug business just as they became a popular trend.
In less than three years, Robin grew her business to annual sales of $3 million dollars. With that success came the realization it wasn’t what she wanted to do with her life. The best part of being an entrepreneur—for her—wasn’t making money or selling lots of copper mugs, it was inspiring people. And long-term, that’s just what’s she doing with her book, Adventures of Women Entrepreneurs.
