We have a really special show about someone who was a really special person. Today, we’re going to talk about my friend and former boss, Adrienne Weinstein. She’s not with us anymore, but she left an indelible mark on my life during the 16 years we worked together. She and Faye, who was my employee, were my “Jewish mothers’ and man, did we have some funny adventures. Think of us as Lucy, Ethel and Ethel and you never knew which one of us was going to be Lucy, but a lot of the time, it was Adrienne.
Sadly, we lost Adrienne in 2005 and yesterday would have been her 79th birthday. Today’s show is dedicated to her and is all about her, with stories and memories from my other Jewish mother, Faye and Adrienne’s son’s Chad and Josh.
A special thank you to Adrienne’s sons, Chad and Josh for joining us this week to share memories of their mom. Dr. Chad Weinstein is hardly the underachiever he claims to be. He is founder and president of Ethical Leaders in Action, and you can find his excellent book, “Thinking Aloud: Reflections on Ethical Leadership” on Amazon!
And Josh, also known as J. Elvis Weinstein has been a stand up comedy star since he was a teenager! Maybe you’ve heard hispodcast, Thought Spiral. You can also catch his documentary, “I need You to Kill” on Amazon Prime and find his latest comedy album “Chunks” on Amazon and be sure to follow him on Twitter!

This week we bring you stories of life’s mortifying moments, as only could happen to us.
In our first story, I’m at a company Christmas party when something happens that is so unexpected and embarrassing that I have to decide how I’m going to manage this How in the hell did I get here moment?!
In our second story this week, Jenny is working second shift, which means a late night walk to her car. However, there’s something different about this night… she’s parked far away in a scary and unfamiliar ramp. She spent a lot of time listening toCoasttoCoastAm and scaring the shit out of herself!
In our last story, Kari takes us back to high school and shares a story she’s never told anyone, until now!
Quick note: Today’s episode includes swear words.
