He teaches readers to be empathetic, to resist conformity, and to develop one's sense of purpose.

Robert Greene has a major following in both the business and political world. In addition, many hip hop artists including Jay-Z, Drake and 50 Cent have been influenced by his books.

Alexandria Bombach's 'On Her Shoulders' is the winner of the Sundance Film Festival's Directing Prize and the winner of the Camden Film Festival's Award for Best Documentary. The film presents a deeply moving portrait of Yazidi genocide survivor-turned-global advocate Nadia Murad. The twenty-three-year-old's life is a dizzying array of important undertakings-from giving testimony before the U.N. to visiting refugee camps to soul-bearing media interviews and one-on-one meetings with top government officials. The film follows this strong-willed young woman, who escaped sexual slavery at the hands of ISIS to become a relentless beacon of hope for her people.

THE SOUNDS OF FILM is the nation's longest running film and music themed radio show. For the past 30 years, the program has delivered a popular mix of interviews and music to listeners all over Long Island, parts of Connecticut and streaming live worldwide on the internet. Past people interviewed for the show include Don Lemon, Alex Winter, Mike Patton, Tree Adams, Wendy & Lisa, Lauren Greenfield, Alexandra Pelosi, John Tartaglia and Rory Kennedy.
