Big Picture Interviews

Everything That Matters: An Interview with Gregg Robins


A Journey Across the Spectrum of Human Emotion and Experience

Published on October 22 2011
Gregg Robins, Everything that MattersGregg Robins

Many of us dream of pursuing creative passions. Gregg Robins has followed his dream and turned it into reality.

This is Peter Clayton, welcome to a Big Picture Channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio. I have the delight of having on the show a good friend, Gregg Robins, whom I met many years ago when he was at Citibank. We did a bunch of films together in Europe, while he was running the Private Bank's communications initiative to convert to the Euro, and handling all the issues around Y2K. Gregg currently lives in Moscow. This is a really unusual podcast for us because we're going to take a very personal journey into Gregg's life.

We recorded this interview in New York, when Gregg was here to master an album that he has written and produced with the help of some very remarkable musicians. I wanted Gregg to tell the story of how this evolved. Obviously, he came from the business world, but has a real passion and a talent for music.

Gregg's new album, titled "Everything that Matters" debuts October 25. You can learn more about Gregg and listen to much of his music on his web site, greggrobins.com.


Stephen Leeb: China. Energy. Red Alert


Red Alert: How China's Growing Prosperity Threatens the American Way of Life

"You know, the benefit of this, Peter, is just as in China, if we do wake up to this, we will create a number of very big growth industries in this country; huge growth industries." Stephen Leeb

Welcome to a Big Picture Channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio with Peter Clayton reporting. Stephen Leeb's provocative and insightful new book, Red Alert: How China's Growing Prosperity Threatens the American Way of Life is a frightening look at the growing political, economic, and social power of China and the threat that nation poses to the Western world. It lays out how the Chinese are strategizing to overtake the United States as the world's premier economic power-and details how our failure to respond quickly will result in a permanently lower standard of living for Americans.

Stephen's previous interviews on TotalPicture Radio are some of the most popular podcasts we've produced -- garnering thousands of downloads. I am pleased to have him back.

In Red Alert, Leeb argues that while U.S. officials and politicians engage in short-term myopic planning, endless legal maneuvering, scandals, and wartime investing that are crippling American economic viability, China's government is run by visionary scholars with backgrounds in such fields as chemistry and engineering who are carefully analyzing the long-term, big picture.

"The whole notion that one weight-loss program, one treatment plan for ADD or depression, or one method to reduce anxiety or addictions can work for everyone is ridiculous. Giving everyone the same plan will make some people better, but it will also make a lot of people worse."Dr. Daniel Amen

HonorVet.org The Next Generation Community for Veterans


Jesse Canella: Working to "Win the War at Home"

Published on April 11 2011

"There's another war. It's behind the curtains of U.S. homes, seen at businesses, unemployment lines, roadways, hospitals, VFW's and on your block. It's the war returning servicemen and women face as they struggle to re-adjust to life in the states. Many are beset by depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), substance abuse problems, lack of economic opportunity, anxiety, injuries, and assorted family issues."

More than 1.6 million American troops have been deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan since 9/11, and many have come home with mental health issues. A study in the New England Journal of Medicine estimated one in eight suffer from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms; another estimates that up to 300,000 have developed some mental health problem. But many don't see a psychiatrist or psychologist, some because they fear the stigma of being labeled mentally ill, some because they won't or can't acknowledge that they need help. The unemployment rate for returning veterans hit 21.1% in March of last year.

Welcome to a Big Picture Channel Podcast on TotalPicture Radio. HonorVet.org was founded by two US Marine Vets, Jesse Canella and Jimmy McCain -- after they returned from active duty in the Al An Bar Province, Iraq. Their organization is devoted to providing resources and support for veterans, service members and their families. I'm honored to have on the show Jesse Canella.
