Kathi Vidal, Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property/Director of the US Patent and Trademark Office and Paul DelPonte, Executive Director of National Crime Prevention Council, join Michelle to talk about how to shop safely this holiday season.

The holiday hustle and bustle are in full swing as shoppers search for this year’s best steals and deals. The good news, discounts are expected to hit record highs for popular categories such as electronics, computers, and toys according to Adobe’s online-shopping forecast.

However, scammers are looking to take advantage of American consumers as fears of a looming recession increase, and people tighten their purse strings leading up to the Holidays. These criminals are on the prowl both online and off looking to entice consumers with even lower-cost price tags attached to dangerous counterfeit products.

According to a new study by Skyscanner, Savvy US travelers have taken pride in being adventurous at heart with more than 3/4s saying they consider themselves spontaneous.
Laura Lindsey joins Michelle to talk about this and other travel trends.

Molly Coneybeer is Camelback Resort’s director of marketing and she joins Michelle to talk about this really fun family property in the Poconos. Ski season is here and they have a lot planned for the winter when it comes to ski and winter activities. Camelback is a great family destination with an indoor waterpark, Aquatopia, and arcade.

Research shows there is a strong two-way connection between the gut and the brain. Psychological factors can affect a person’s gut health, and a person’s gut symptoms or condition can also affect their psychological health and well-being. This can spell trouble during the holidays because sugary treats, fatty dishes and excessive alcohol are in abundance and can cause digestive trouble, making a person miserable. Katherine Tomasino, PhD, is the co-director of the Behavioral Medicine for Digestive Health Program at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago and talks with Michelle about the brain gut connection.
