One True Conversation


Dick recently asked listeners for stories of how they reconcile their divergent career paths - something Rupa Marya has been doing for a while.

Rupa is leader of the band Rupa and the April Fishes. But to her patients, she's known as Dr. Marya. Rupa has juggled her desire to be both a musician and a doctor since she was little. She talks with Dick about the memorable conversation that helped her begin to sort it all out - when she sat down in front of a panel of Harvard doctors and admitted she had no idea what she was doing with her life.


Everyone now seems to be plugged into a social network on the web: MySpace, Facebook, Friendster, LinkedIn. Jim Sollisch never wanted any part of electronic schmoozing, but he got tricked into joining LinkedIn by a friend. As he tells Dick, he's finding it near-impossible to get himself linked out.
