“Why Did I Come In This Room?” with Joan Lunden

Joan Lunden hosted Good Morning America for nearly two decades, making her the longest running host ever on early morning television. She remains one of America’s most recognized and trusted television personalities… not to mention she’s the mama of our co-host, Jamie!

Joan redefined what it meant to be a working mom in America, and no one exemplifies aging gracefully and fearlessly like she does… and now she’s written a book about it! We chatted with this award-winning journalist, best-selling author, and all-around powerhouse about her book “Why Did I Come in This Room? A Candid Conversation on Aging,” to break down the stigma around “age” and talk about it all… the good, the “bad,” and the embarrassing!

Back to School(?!?) with Teacher, Activist, & People Mag's "Sexiest Teacher Alive," Nicholas Ferroni

Going back to school is the topic hot on everyone's minds right now… and whether you're a mom or not, everyone seems to have an opinion. On one hand, we hear that we may be damaging our children (both educationally & emotionally) by restricting their socialization. On the other hand, we hear from experts and teachers across the country who say there is no possible way to return to school safely.We’re joined today by Nicholas Ferroni, a high school history teacher from Union, NJ who has a thing or two to say on the matter… and there’s no one whose opinion we value more. Why? Nicholas has been noted as one of the "100 Making a Difference” and one of the "Most Influential Educators In America;” he was named "Upstander of the Year" by the Human Rights Campaign for his work with LGBTQ youth; he designed a social experiment on the important of gender equality in politics that Whoopi Goldberg called “the best social experiment ever” (no big deal!)... oh and he was named the Sexiest Teacher Alive by People Magazine - CASUAL!!Nicholas is a walking, talking example of that which he preaches… he is a social activist who educates, mentors and inspires students causing them to not only BE inspired & to INSPIRE OTHERS. We’re grateful he’s here today to inspire us, and shed some light on this sticky topic from his view on the front lines of the conversation.
