Peter Christian may be on vacation for the next two weeks, but that doesn't mean there's not a lot to talk about. Here's what's in store for week #1 of Jon's descent into madness.

On Monday we'll be speaking with special guests Bob Seidenschwartz (from SG Long and Company and the World Affairs Council) and extra special guest Arnold Sherman. Sherman is the Executive Director of the Montana World Trade Center and an adjunct professor of The UM school of Business administration. We'll be speaking about the Bakken boom and Montana's international business acumen.

On Tuesday I plan on devoting the day to discussing Romney's Vice Presidential pick Paul Ryan. Tell us your thoughts on whether you think Ryan helps the Republicans or the Democrats.

On Wednesday we'll have the World Affairs Council on the radio. We'll be speaking to Josh Denny, Ather Bajwa, and Bob Seidenschwartz from SG Long and Company about the global financial crisis.

On Thursday, I'm working on a mystery guest . . . more info later.

On Friday we'll have open phones! Call in and tell us what's on your mind!
