As a leader, he has recorded ten CDs and two DVDs both in Australia with his quartet and also in New York through Arbors Records.  His 2017 release Jazz Speak, recorded with jazz stars Jeff Hamilton, John Clayton and Ted Rosenthal, broke the top 20 in the U.S. national JazzWeek charts.

In Singapore he also began to pursue his love of design and clothing, studying design at NAFA while interning at Harpars Bazaar Magazine.

At the age of 21, Yosel moved to London to study at the Savile Row Academy, where he spent two years training in both cutting and tailoring. He was then chosen to apprentice under Master Tailor Andrew Ramroop of Maurice Sedwell, where he dealt with many high profile clients, celebrity sports players, award winning actors and international royalty.

Born in the north of Israel, Lior spent the beginning of his life living with his family across Europe. He returned to Israel at age 10 where he quickly learned that the best food in Israel was not at restaurants but in people’s homes where the flavors of their origin countries combined with the Middle East. Though his path to the spice kingdom began after completing three years as a sergeant of the Israeli army. Lior traveled to South America where his exposure to new cultures and cooking further developed a passion for the culinary world.

Upon returning to Israel, Chef Gil Frank gave him his first job and after three years encouraged him to take the next step. Lior enrolled in culinary school at the acclaimed Institut Paul Bocuse in Lyon, France. During that time, he did an externship with chef Olivier Roellinger in Cancale, France, who had earned three Michelin stars at his hotel and restaurant Les Maisons de Bricourt. Roellinger became known for his rare understanding of spices, blends, oils, and pastes, areas Lior found the most interesting.

In 2002, Lior brought his newfound understanding of spice blending to New York, where he had the honor of working with chef Daniel Boulud at his flagship restaurant Daniel as a sous chef and catering chef. He left Daniel in 2008 to start La Boîte, originally making and selling a line of French biscuits as well as experimenting with spices. In 2011, deepening his spice knowledge, he opened La Boîte Biscuits & Spices, an art gallery and spice shop in New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen on 11th Avenue and 51st street.

Lior has worked closely with chefs from around the world, developing custom blends for them and for other customers with all levels of cooking experience. Restaurant collaborations include: Daniel, Le Bernardin, Zahav, Momofuko Ssam Bar, Kawi, Del Posto, Marc Forgione, Blackbird, Oleana, and Michael Mina, among others.

In 2012, he produced a cookbook entitled The Art of Blending, which features 41 blends along with recipes and cooking tips provided by renowned chefs and culinary minds. His second book, The Spice Companion, is an illustrated guide to 102 spices, complete with blends and recipe ideas was published by Clarkson Potter in November 2016. Lior released his third book, Mastering Spice: Recipes and Techniques to Transform Your Everyday Cooking, in October 2019 (Clarkson Potter) and offers 250 recipes informing readers on how spices change the way one makes every meal.

Up next for Lior includes the expansion of La Boite’s presence in Manhattan with a new wholesale headquarters and test kitchen on West 46th street.  He also serves as the culinary director of the future Jewish National Fund-USA Galilee Culinary Institute in Israel’s Upper Eastern Galilee, set to open in 2021.

Ivan's journey began with a dishwashing job at a sushi bar when he was 15. He discovered a culture and cuisine that would shape the rest of his life. Upon graduation from high school, Ivan decided to major in Japanese language and literature at the University of Colorado, Boulder. After graduating, Ivan immediately moved to Japan to teach English and he quickly cemented his love of everything Japanese.

He returned to the US in 1990 and enrolled in the Culinary Institute of America, and began his culinary training.

Upon graduation from the CIA, and stints at Mesa Grill, Lutece, and Restaurant Associates, Ivan returned to Tokyo to live in the country that he fell in love with. He had still never given thought to combining his love for cooking and Japan, but that was soon to change. Ivan was anxious to start a food-related business in Japan but was unsure of which direction to take. He thought about opening a cooking school, a sandwich shop, even a pizzeria. It was his wife's suggestion that he open a ramen shop.

This move seemed destined for failure in a country where ramen enjoys a cult-like status. Incredibly, Ivan not only succeeded, but became one of the top ramen shops in Tokyo, an unheard of accomplishment for a foreigner. In 2010 a second shop, Ivan Ramen Plus, was opened. In 2012, Ivan returned to NY with the hopes of opening a business back home, while continuing to operate his two shops in Tokyo. In the meantime his cookbook "Ivan Ramen" was published. His first venture in the US, Ivan Ramen Slurp Shop, opened at the Gotham West Market on 600 11th Avenue in November of 2013 to huge crowds and critical acclaim.

Soon after, his US flagship, Ivan Ramen opened at 25 Clinton Street on New York's Lower East Side.

Both restaurants continue to enjoy critical acclaim and have been mentioned in countless magazines, websites, blogs, and television programs. Ivan is widely recognized as the American authority on ramen and all things Japanese. His effortless crossover from American to Japanese cultures has given him a distinct advantage. He speaks fluent Japanese, and has a deep understanding of the culture which allows him to present a product that appeals to both Japanese and American audiences.

In February of 2017 Ivan was featured in the hit NETFLIX series CHEFS TABLE, instantly vaulting him into the company of some of the world's great chefs and restauranteurs. This honor has driven even more fans of ramen into Ivan's restaurants where he continues to serve them his uniquely "Ivan" cuisine.

On this episode, Ivan shares his one way ticket to live in New York City from the turn of the 20th century onwards. He also shares the beauties of ramen noodles and his beloved Japan.

Over the last four decades, John Miller has served as Music Coordinator for over 130 Broadway productions and is currently represented by Ain't Too Proud: The Life and Times of the Temptations and Oklahoma!, in addition to the upcoming New York production of Tina: The Tina Turner Musical. He has worked on Broadway's biggest hits including: The Producers, Once, Jersey Boys, and Hairspray. As a bassist, he has played with everyone from Madonna, Bob Dylan, and Elvis Costello, to Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and the New York Philharmonic. As an actor, he played the role of Dee Dee the drug-dealing percussionist in Amazon Prime's Golden Globe-winning "Mozart in the Jungle" for all four seasons.

Miller's album, "Stage Door Johnny", takes an irreverent and engaging musical trek through a collection of beloved tunes, featuring songs currently on Broadway - "Wouldn't It Be Loverly" from My Fair Lady, "Why Can't You Behave?" from Kiss Me Kate, and "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'" from Oklahoma! - in addition to unexpected choices like "Real Live Girl" from Little Me and "I Won't Grow Up" from Peter Pan.

On "Stage Door Johnny", Miller uses jazzy arrangements, humor, even country music inflections to spice up the mix and create what he wryly calls "Quaalude Funk." The album seeks to remind Broadway fans just how versatile the genre is, and how well the songs stand up to new arrangements. Even those who feel predisposed to not like theater music might find themselves humming along to the tunes.

On this episode, John shares his one way ticket to Bossa Nova's early formative years in Brazil. He also talks about opening night on Broadway, offers advice for musicians, and recalls one particularly memorable concert performing with Frank Sinatra at Carnegie Hall.

Ian Bremmer is the President and Founder of Eurasia Group, the leading global political risk research and consulting firm. He is also the president and founder of GZERO Media, a Eurasia Group company dedicated to helping a broad, global audience make sense of today's leaderless world.

Ian is a prolific thought leader and author, regularly expressing his views on political issues in public speeches, television appearances, and top publications, including Time magazine, where he is the foreign affairs columnist and editor-at-large. His latest book "Us vs. Them: The Failure of Globalism" is a New York Times bestseller.

In 1998, Ian established Eurasia Group with just $25,000. Today, the company has offices in New York, Washington, San Francisco, London, Sao Paulo, Singapore, and Tokyo, as well as a network of experts and resources in 90 countries. As the firm's president and most active public voice, Ian advises leading executives, money managers, diplomats, and heads of state.

Ian is credited with bringing the craft of political risk to financial markets—he created Wall Street's first global political risk index (GPRI)—and for establishing political risk as an academic discipline. His definition of emerging markets—“those countries where politics matters at least as much as economics for market outcomes”—has become an industry standard. “G-Zero,” his term for a global power vacuum in which no country is willing and able to set the international agenda, is widely accepted by policymakers and thought leaders.

In 2007, Ian was named a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum, where he is the founding chairman of the Global Agenda Council on Geopolitical Risk. He is the Harold J. Newman Distinguished Fellow in Geopolitics at the Asia Society Policy Institute and serves on the President's Council of the Near East Foundation, the Leadership Council for Concordia, and the Board of Trustees of Intelligence Squared.

Ian earned a master's degree and a doctorate in political science from Stanford University, where he went on to become the youngest-ever national fellow at the Hoover Institution. He received his bachelor's degree in international relations from Tulane University.

Ian has published ten books including the national bestsellers “Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World”, “The End of the Free Market: Who Wins the War Between States and Corporations?”, and "Superpower: Three Choices for America's Role in the World."

On this episode, Ian shares his one way ticket to a slightly higher state of consciousness. He also covers topics from his latest book, "Us vs. Them: The Failure of Globalism", shares what he's done every morning for the last 13 years (except for two days), and why he holds Christine Lagarde in such high esteem. 

Ian is just one of the dynamic guests featured on The One Way Ticket Show, where Host Steven Shalowitz explores with his guests where they would go if given a one way ticket, no coming back! Destinations may be in the past, present, future, real, imaginary or a state of mind.
