This hour of One Cell One Light® Radio show with Dr. Hildy® will have resident guest, Veronica Hendricks and Nathan Daily, Owner of the renowned Furry Sleuths, Randolph and Dune, who may very well “Bark” their response to this show.
Dr. Hildy® as you already know, authored the book Cricket the K-Town Kitty: A Tale of Who I AM, Xulon Press, Inc., ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3g2iUF8lKs ), which lead her into the area of what is exactly in your pet’s food. After reading the labels of Cricket’s Cat foods and reading the book, ‘Dead Pets Don’t Lie’ by Joe Ardis and Donna Howell there is a whole new feature of this show.
Even the store, Pet Smart recently addressed that they will not carry any Brand of Pet Food that had animal by-products in it. And you better make sure there is no rendering of animals for their protein in the food, too.
The book and DVD entitled DEAD PETS DON’T LIE was authored by Dog Behavior Expert and Certified Professional Trainer/Instructor Joe Ardis, who teams up with best-selling investigative author Donna Howell to sound the alarm on shocking practices in the commercial pet food industry. Within the pages of their book, readers are shown the scandalous production methods of leading commercial pet food makers who are knowingly passing off harmful, detestable, and poisonous “foods” as vitamin-rich, healthy, nutritious, and balanced meals for animals across the states.
Our Guests will discuss what they have DISCOVERED after reading this book and its impact on the commercial pet food industry.
Why pets are becoming terminally ill and dying prematurely as a result of eating commercial foods.
What the “big commercial lie” actually is, and how food manufacturers are getting away with, and profiting from, deceiving the public.
How the FDA has turned a blind eye to devastating food-handling procedures, refusing to regulate appropriately, and how they make it nearly impossible for pet owners to confront the system.
Explosive evidence involving animal rendering facilities, and the health concerns raised by medical experts.
How euthanized and diseases animals (including dogs and cats form vet clinics and shelters) are making their way into pet food, and the danger that this practice presents to your animals.
How genetically modified (GMO) crops, as well as moldy and contaminated grains, are affecting the health of current, as well as future, pet generations.
How to quickly and easily make sense of pet food labels, as well as how to spot major red flags.
How to avoid harmful preservatives, dyes, and unnecessary fillers.
The three categories of pet diets, and how to access which of them will be the best fit for your lifestyle.
What your pet’s nutritional needs are, and steps you can take to meet them.
Some comments from readers of this book are the following:
“I just wish more people knew about what was going on (in the Pet Food Industry)!” Dr. Jean Hofve, DVM
Thomas R. Horn, best-selling author, was shocked by “the measure for which the industry has knowingly participated in, providing the most nutritionally void, dangerous “foods’ to pet owners – and the lengths at which they will travel to keep their detestable food practices a secret while masquerading schemes and suspect endorsements.
WE HAVE A WINNER: Samuel, New Port Richey, Florida.
TODAY’s Show will have a PRIZE:
Question: “What is a leading drug found in pet food?”
Prize: Dead Pet’s Don’t Lie book and DVD. DVD of Tarzan Starring Johnny Weismueller and Jungle Jim as well as My Sweet Honey Bee Soap and Baci Mi®’s Sun Raven Mist Products. “Bark for Joy” say Randolph and Dune as you enjoy this special prize from the Folks at One Cell One Light® Radio and Dr. Hildy®.
First one to call in to the office at phone: 323-466-2599 or fax: 323-466-2774 with the correct response will be the WINNER of this PRIZE PACKAGE.

Hour 2 –
This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy welcomes a group of guests – Dana Johnson, Wendy Wiggs, and Tina Chico – to discuss the Shine On Tour which focuses on empowering people to support their bodies holistically using body harmony and balancing essential oil protocols in conjunction with cleansing as a way to come out of physical and emotional darkness.
Dana Johnson is a certified primal health coach & essential oil educator who has been coaching using therapeutic essential oils for 3 years. Wendy Wiggs spent 11 years working in an ER and, knowing the modern approach to “health”, has chosen a more holistic path, and is now a therapeutic chef and educator. Tina Chico has over 20 years experience using plants for medicine and detoxifying and understands the importance of empowering others with natural solutions to self care in their own homes.
Together, their Shine On Tour is designed to create wellness communities of practitioners who are open to and support using essential oils and plants in every area that they visit. Their idea is that our whole health can be seen as a house: the “foundation” of health being bioavailable supplements; the “walls” represent one’s stress level, nutrition, exercise, and toxic exposure; and the the “roof” as using essential oils to cover and support.
Their program uses a specific cleanse protocol that begins with nutrifying the liver so that the toxins we are inundated with every day can be processed and released.
Join Dr. Hildy and her guests as they discuss plant-based medicines on One Cell, One Light Radio!

We posted the audios from our previous shows with Charles below so you can listen to his voice.
This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy pays tribute to a very special person.
We were saddened to learn that our friend,
Charles Berliner, passed away.
A veteran of set and costume design for film, television and theater, Mr. Berliner spent more than four decades in show business, working on some of the most acclaimed productions of his time, as well as serving for 28 years as the Western Regional Representative of the legendary National Entertainment Industry Union, United Scenic Artists, Local USA 829, IATSE.
Coming from an entertainment family, Mr. Berliner followed his mother, a concert pianist at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco as well as a Broadway singer and his aunt, a vaudeville performer who shared the stage with Gracie Allen into show business, getting his start as a dancer in San Francisco. He became interested in stage design at the tender age of 10, after seeing the original stage production of My Fair Lady with Rex Harrison and Julie Andrews. Careful study of the production led him to figure out how the production used multiple stages to quickly change scenes, and Charles was immediately drawn to the theater. Unlike most, his interests lied not in being on stage, but rather designing them. Read the rest of this entry

HOUR 2 AUDIO – 1-8-14 – Dr. Hildy®: We Three Kings Of Hollywood’s Silent Screen – Quest for Magi of Hollywood
In a small Episcopalian parish in Williamsport, Pennsylvania lived a rector named John Henry Hopkins, Jr. and in 1857 he wrote a Christmas carol that rings the “truth” of the heavens above to earth. We have all sung the lyrics to the song some time in our lives, whether in a school play or when we put the green grass from our lawns into our shoes or under our beds on Three King’s eve for their camels. Our reward was a special gift from the Magi to us for remembering their camels, who have journeyed so far, and this is felt deeply within our hearts during this time of the year.
In honor of the Three Magi of the Silent Screen, Dr. Hildy will discuss the films and transference of the light of the great torch of life with our special guest – Richard Gonzales, Media Director of One Cell One Light Radio and our returning guest, Veronica Hendricks.
The Three Kings of the Silent Era not only shown their own star, but blended their stars into the founding light for the future male sex symbols of the future. These stars had ancient ancestors who came from the core of the Orient, Mediterranean and the core of the Americas – Mesoamerica linage. Their names were Sessue Hayakawa, Rudolf Valentino and Ramon Novarro. Women would dream of them and men would want to be them. Their Golden time here on our jewel of a planet was in the hay day of the movie industry. Their souls rang of pure radiant class, but they also had an internal professional integrity for their chosen field, which gave rise to some of the major studios of Hollywood like MGM and Paramount.
And with pure class, one does not have to have the genetics for it — they are born with it. A shining reflection of who they are and who came before them in their spiritual light of the universe – A Star is Born to shine their crystal light upon All. These Magi of Hollywood still shine their individual radiant light as a star from heaven to earth through their everlasting films that made the foundation of the studios as it molded them into Transnational Stardom.
Three Kings, three stars and three lights, that radiated around the world through the birth of HOLLYWOOD. Come join us with Dr. Hildy as she and her guests share with you their wonder, perfect light and royal beauty as we bring in the New Year – 2014

HOUR 1 AUDIO:
HOUR 2 AUDIO:
Often unsettling, horrifying, and intense, horror films are designed to terrify, cause dread and alarm, and to invoke our hidden worst fears all while safely entertaining us in a cathartic experience. Horror films center on the dark side of life; the forbidden, strange and alarming events that we only want to experience vicariously through the characters onscreen.
The horror genre has existed since the very beginning of cinema. In 1896, French visionary Georges Melies directed the two minute short Le Manoir Du Diable (aka The Devil’s Castle/The Haunted Castle) – containing familiar elements of later horror and vampire films: a flying bat, a medieval castle, a cauldron, a demon figure (Mephistopheles), and skeletons, ghosts, and witches – and a crucifix to dispatch with evil.
A hallmark of the genre is the vampire film, the first of which was F.W. Murnau’s silent masterpiece Nosferatu (1922), turning the title character from Bram Stokers famous novel into a hideous monster. Capitalizing on the growing demand for these films, Universal Studios released in 1923 The Hunchback of Notre Dame, starring Lon Chaney.
This was the beginning of what would become the most success any studio has had with the genre, as Universal went on to make Dracula, Frankenstein, The Mummy, The Invisible Man, Bride of Frankenstein, The Wolf Man, The Creature From the Black Lagoon and countless others through the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s. In 1948, Universal released the comedy film Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein, which is considered to have effectively ended the golden age of classic horror monsters, despite being a huge box office success.
While Universal would not revive their classic monsters until 1999, with a remake of The Mummy starring Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz, the 1950’s gave way to a new style of horror, one inspired by the Cold War-era nuclear paranoia of the time. Paramount’s The Blob is a famous example, about an alien lifeform that consumes everything in its path. Another example of this genre is Them!, a film about ants turning into giant killing machines in the wake of a nuclear explosion.
In 1968, director George A. Romero ushered in one of the most popular sub-genres in horror, the modern zombie film, with Night of the Living Dead. This trope has been done time and time again, with Romero himself making 6 films in the series, and is enjoying popular success on television with AMC’s The Walking Dead.
In the 1970’s, the slasher film was born, with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a film that is still unsettling to watch to this day and Halloween, which started the long series of horror films continued with Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th, whose main killer characters met in 2003 with Freddy vs. Jason.
Today the horror genre is alive and well, with many directors going an independent route, abandoning the hoop-jumping that comes with studio pictures. Films such as Paranormal Activity, Saw, V/H/S and Insidious take advantage of the lowered cost that digital filmmaking allows for to provide a new type of scary movie. And there’s still scary movies that are safe for all ages, with Hotel Transylvania, Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie and director Joe Johnston’s The Hole.

AND THE ‘SCARIEST’ and the ‘BEST’ favorites’ list from our Professional Screenwriter and our own Staff Promotional Writer, Eric Ernst:
Shaun of the Dead – Although mostly a comedy, the film truly
does justice to the horror genre, becoming terrifying when it needs to. (Trailer)
Night of the Living Dead – I always love the apocalyptic disaster that ensues in most zombie movies. The breakdown of society is terrifying to me. (Trailer) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_of_the_Living_Dead http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEVjoAwC-3Q
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre – A classic. Disgusting and still unsettling.
The original is the only one worth watching, though. (Trailer)
Dawn of the Dead (2004 version) – Haven’t seen the original, but the remake does a great job of modernizing the genre and creating a realistic disaster. (Trailer)
[REC] – A Spanish entry in the “found footage” genre, this was remade in the US as Quarantine, but the original, about a group of people trapped in an apartment building
while an epidemic breaks out, is horrifying. (Trailer)
The Blair Witch Project – The originator of the “found footage” genre,
this was the scariest film I had ever seen until Paranormal Activity. (Trailer)

ONE HOUR AUDIO:
Over the last few decades, Halloween has grown from a night centered around children trick or treating, to a multi-billion dollar industry. Costumes, décor, parties, haunted house events – all have made the Halloween season the unofficial kickoff to the end-of-year holidays. But like most traditions, its original meaning has been lost throughout the years.
This week on One Cell One Light Radio, Dr. Hildy hosts a discussion on the origins of Halloween with Screenwriter, Eric Ernst. Today’s Halloween customs are thought to have been influenced by folk customs and beliefs from the Celtic-speaking countries, some of which have pagan roots, and others that may be rooted in Celtic Christianity.
Samhain was the first and most important of the four quarter-days in the medieval Gaelic calendar and was celebrated in Ireland, Scotland, and the Isle of Man on or about October 31 and kindred festivals were held at the same time of year by the Brittonic Celts.
Samhain marked the end of the harvest season and beginning of winter or the ‘darker half’ of the year. It was seen as a liminal time, when the spirits or fairies (the Aos Sí) could more easily come into our world and were particularly active. At Samhain, it was believed that the Aos Sí needed to be propitiated to ensure that the people and their livestock survived the winter. Offerings of food and drink were left for the Aos Sí and the souls of the dead were also said to revisit their homes. Places were set at the dinner table or by the fire to welcome them. In 19th century Ireland, candles would be lit and prayers formally offered for the souls of the dead. After this the eating, drinking, and games would begin. The household festivities included rituals and games intended to divine one’s future, especially regarding death and marriage.
Today’s Halloween customs are also influenced by Christian dogma and practices derived from it. Halloween falls on the evening before the Christian holy day of All Hallows’ Day, thus giving the holiday the full name of All Hallows’ Eve. But it was not until the mass Irish and Scottish immigration during the 19th century that it was brought to North America. Confined to the immigrant communities during the mid-19th century, it was gradually assimilated into mainstream society and by the first decade of the 20th century it was being celebrated coast to coast by people of all social, racial and religious backgrounds.
As for the many traditions of Halloween, in Ireland and Scotland, the turnip has traditionally been carved during Halloween, but immigrants to North America used the native pumpkin, which is both much softer and much larger – making it easier to carve than a turnip. In Scotland and Ireland, guising – children disguised in costume going from door to door for food or coins – is a traditional Halloween custom, and is recorded in Scotland at Halloween in 1895 where masqueraders in disguise carrying lanterns made out of scooped out turnips, visit homes to be rewarded with cakes, fruit and money.
Halloween costumes are traditionally modeled after supernatural figures such as vampires, monsters, ghosts, skeletons, witches, and devils. In Hallowed Be Thy Name, a religious perspective to the wearing of costumes is offered:”By dressing up in costumes and portraying frightening creatures, who at one time caused us to fear and tremble, we. . . are poking fun at the serpent whose head has been crushed by our Savior.” Furthermore, in the Christian tradition, “images of skeletons, ghosts, graveyard scenes, nighttime creatures such as bats are traditional decorations. Over time, in the United States the costume selection extended to include popular characters from fiction, celebrities, and generic archetypes such as ninjas and princesses.

Thank you! Dr. Hildy
Here it is!!!
Director: Anthony Knasas
The first hour of One Cell One Light™ Radio will feature Dr. Staninger talking with the filmmakers behind the movie, ‘The Attic Door’.
Filmed in Utah for a budget of less than a quarter-million dollars, The Attic Door tells the story of a young brother and sister are abandoned in the vast and lonely landscape of the 19th century American West. Each day, they struggle to keep up the family farm, anxiously waiting for their parents to return. With nowhere to escape, the two siblings are about to discover that they are not entirely alone. As much as they try to deny the truth, something behind the attic door has awakened and they must now face their greatest fear. The Attic Door is the story of love, loss, loneliness, and the truth behind childhood fears.
Joining Dr. Staninger for this discussion will be Writer/Director Danny Daneau, Executive Producer Erica Harrell and Writer/Co-Producer Eric Ernst, with a focus on the process and struggles of making their film, and independently produced films in general.
