Inspire. Educate. Entertain.

Conversations featuring authors and influential leaders in the arts, media and business.


With spring finally showing signs of peeking through, we are pleased to announce some updates to the DE USURIS blog and a new feature page on the website - THE LIST - which will be an ever-evolving short source for performances and events of interest which is what "DE USURIS" is all about. There are also improvements to the podcast archive, including an updated search function, and all of our podcasts are available for free download on iTunes, Stitcher and Libsyn.  

If you are planning to be AROUND & ABOUT, you will want to check out THE LIST to see what's going on and read the PICKSINSIX Reviews for recommendations, to wit: you "cain't say no" to a terrific pair of Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals, a new planetary destination for Sondheim, or a night in a swanky Berlin hotel.
