Theresa Caputo Bio via

Also known as the Long Island Medium (maybe you’ve heard of my reality show?), I have a new series with Lifetime “THERESA CAPUTO RAISING SPIRITS” airing Thursdays 9/8c and available to stream the next day. I’m a New York Times best-selling author. My podcast Hey Spirit! is available everywhere you listen. I was born and raised in Hicksville Long Island, and have two children Larry 33 and Victoria 29. My parents Nick and Ronnie live next door and my brother Michael and his family live a few towns over.

I’ve been seeing, feeling, and sensing Spirit since I was four years old, but it wasn’t until I was in my 20s that I learned to communicate with souls in Heaven. After suffering from debilitating anxiety and trying to manage it on my own and with a therapist for years, my mom introduced me to a spiritual healer and teacher named Pat Longo. After just one session, she told me that I was suppressing Spirit’s energy, which caused a lot of my anxiety, and helped me learn to channel Spirit through my chakras and release it with my words. I began to heal and come into my own.

When I accepted my gift, I wanted to use it to deliver healing messages that would help people learn, grow, and embrace life. I’ve been a practicing medium for over twenty years now and tour the country with my live show “Theresa Caputo Live The Experience.” I’ve also written four books: There’s More to Life than This: Healing Messages, Remarkable Stories, and Insight from the Other Side (Atria Books, 2013), which debuted at #2 on the New York Times best seller list, “You Can’t Make This Stuff Up” Life Changing Lessons from Heaven (Atria Books, 2014) NY Times bestseller “Good Grief” Heal Your Soul, Honor Your Loved Ones, and Learn to Live again (Atria Books 2017) a NY Times bestseller and Good Mourning: Moving Through Everyday Losses With Wisdom From The Other Side (HarperCollins 2020). My podcast HEY SPIRIT! was nominated for an Ambie award in the Best Personal Growth Spirituality category, and is available everywhere you get your podcasts. Considering I started this work with just a business card and word of mouth, I pinch myself when I think about what a crazy ride it’s been for a typical Long Island Mom!

Clients, fans, and the media always ask me to describe how I receive information, and it’s hard to put into words because I see, hear, and feel things differently than we do in the physical world. Spirit mostly speaks to me through a sixth sense—a kind of feeling and knowing. When I get information, it feels like very strong intuition, or recall. Spirit also uses a vocabulary of signs and symbols that they show me during a reading; over time, I assigned words, phrases, and meanings to certain images I was shown, and then through trial and error, Spirit helped me add new ones until we created an entire vocabulary for us to work with. I translate my signs and what I feel as best I can and then deliver the messages, but it’s the client’s job to interpret how the meaning is significant. It’s like piecing together a puzzle and can sometimes sound like guesswork, but Spirit speaks “another language,” at another speed, and in another dimension. My job’s not easy lol!

Xio Axelrod bio via

Xio Axelrod [she/her] is a USA Today Bestselling author of contemporary fiction and romance. Growing up in the music industry, Xio began her recording career at a young age. Her experiences bring a lyrical quality to her writing and vibrancy to her characters, offering a unique perspective that adds depth and authenticity to the worlds she creates.

Xio’s award-winning novels have earned both critical acclaim and a passionate readership. Her Lillys series, including The Girl with Stars in Her Eyes and Girls with Bad Reputations, explores themes of love, loss, and self-discovery. The “Lillyverse” extends beyond the books with merchandising, music, and art that her readers can enjoy.

A completely unapologetic, badge-wearing, fic-writing fangirl, Xio actively connects with her readers through social media, fostering a dedicated and supportive community. Xio is also a passionate advocate for various causes, including human rights issues and mental health awareness, and that is reflected in her stories.

When she isn’t behind the keyboard, Xio can be found behind the mic in a studio, writing songs or performing as her fictional band, The Lillys. A native of Philadelphia, Xio lives in complete denial of the last five minutes of Buffy with one very patient, full-time indoor husband and two part-time, supremely pampered outdoor cats.

Jewish Perspectives on the News and Politics with Burt Siegel

This program will not hold back on what the host and his guests believe is wrong with an American society in which anti-Jewish sentiments as well as racism have become too often tolerated, where cooperation across party lines is treated as treachery, where immigrants and refugees are seen as a threat to the “American Way of Life” and the gap between the ultra wealthy and the average American is ever widening. While it will reflect the values of Judaism and the Democratic party all are welcomed to share their thoughts regarding how we can achieve the dream of what our nation aspires to be about.
