Sarah Vowell is the New York Times' bestselling author of five nonfiction books on American history and culture. By examining the connections between the American past and present, she offers personal, often humorous accounts of everything from presidents and their assassins to colonial religious fanatics, as well as thoughts on American Indians, utopian dreamers, pop music and the odd cranky cartographer. Vowell's book, The Wordy Shipmates, examines the New England Puritans and their journey to and impact on America. She studies John Winthrop's 1630 sermon "A Model of Christian Charity" - and the bloody story that resulted from American exceptionalism. And she also traces the relationship of Winthrop, Massachusetts' first governor, and Roger Williams, the Calvinist minister who founded Rhode Island - an unlikely friendship that was emblematic of the polar extremes of the American foundation. Throughout, she reveals how American history can show up in unusual places in our modern culture, often in unexpected ways. Her book Assassination Vacation (2005) is a haunting and surprisingly hilarious road trip to tourist sites devoted to the murders of presidents Lincoln, Garfield and McKinley. Vowell examines what these acts of political violence reveal about our national character and our contemporary society. She is also the author of two essay collections, The Partly Cloudy Patriot (2002) and Take the Cannoli (2000). Her first book Radio On (1997), is her year-long diary of listening to the radio in 1995. Her most recent book is a history of 19th Century Hawaii, entitled Unfamiliar Fishes (2011). Vowell was a contributing editor for Public Radio International's This American Life from 1996-2008, where she produced numerous commentaries and documentaries and toured the country in many of the program's live shows. She was one of the original contributors to McSweeney's, also participating in many of the quarterly's readings and shows. She has been a columnist for, Time and San Francisco Weekly and continues to write occasional essays for the opinion page of the New York Times. Vowell has made numerous appearances on the Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O'Brien and the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. She is the voice of teen superhero Violet Parr in Brad Bird's Academy Award-winning The Incredibles, a Pixar Animation Studios film. Vowell is the president of the board of 826NYC, a nonprofit tutoring and writing center for students aged 6-18 in Brooklyn.

These days, Stephanie Miller has emerged as a favorite of the cable news channels as political coverage dominates. She's quite possibly the most watched guest personality on MSNBC without her own show...when the I-Man took his vacation from radio, MSNBC selected her to her bridge the gap until they sorted out what they wanted to do. CNN calls often... Fox takes a chance every once in a while and puts her on Cavuto and other shows so their "fair and balanced" claim can hold up. In a word, she's hot. Her national radio program is bubbling in the climate of keen awareness of and the expectation of the sea change about to occur in America. Stephanie is no stranger to political talk and current events, as her late father, William E. Miller, was Barry Goldwater's running mate in the Republicans' failed 1964 bid for the presidency. Since its September 2004 debut, The Stephanie Miller Show has become one of the most important and fastest growing shows in Progressive Talk, heard across America on radio stations, on Sirius, via podcasts and free live streaming. The path to Miller's career as an entertainer began in Buffalo, N.Y., where she was born and raised and landed her first job in radio. Growing up, she never listened to the radio; she wanted to be Carol Burnett. When she was about 27, Miller was on the air on "Hot 97" in her hometown, then moved to Rochester, N.Y., on to Chicago and New York City, and ended up in L.A., home base for The Stephanie Miller Show. Miller's fresh voice and political satire have been cultivated over years of experience as a media personality and comedienne. Miller has major market radio experience at KABC and KFI in Los Angeles and other stations in New York and Chicago. She hosted a late-night network television talk show syndicated by Disney and guest hosted on CNBC's "Equal Time" as the liberal counterweight to Bay Buchanan. She also has appeared on ABC'S "Good Morning America," NBC's "Today Show," the "Tonight Show," CNN's "Larry King Live," FOX's "The O'Reilly Factor," and many others. The Stephanie Miller Show is produced by WYD Media Management and is syndicated by Dial-Global Networks, the nation's leading independent radio programming company.
