Racial Identity: What do you want to be called ???

Episode 71: 2/28/13 - Last week we began a discussion on racism that took on a life of it's own as the phone lines lit up with live callers weighing in on the topic. This week, we asked people how they would like their racial identity expressed when someone is referring to them. During the hour we received a record number of callers with some of the best contributions in the program's 70 episode history. Listen to this podcast and ask yourself how would you like people to refer to your racial and ethnic identity. Are you black, white, African American, hispanic......? Is the question even important in this day and age? www.TheDrFritzShow.com

The Impact of technology, the Internet, and social media on relationship

Episode 66:  1-24-13 - In the old days, which was not that long a ago, the way we made new friends was natural. We met people, in person, as neighbors, at school or at work. We developed relationships through physical contact and regular engagement in shared activities in the same environment. Technological advances over the past century have allowed us to form and maintain  relationships with a decreasing need to actually be in the same place. During this hour we are going to explore how technology, the Internet, and social media are changing the face of relationships. We are joined by special guest author and entrepreneur Cara Leyba (@ChampagneDiet).

The psychology of entrepreneurship

Episode 64: 1/10/13 - Since the early 1960s, social science researchers have tried to isolate a set of personality traits/characteristics associated with entrepreneurial behavior and success.
