Tuesdays 5:55 – 6:50 PM (PST)
The People Speak Radio is concerned with a passion for guests from the realms of entertainment, the arts, literature, philosophy, politics, activism, healing, and environmentalism. All of the guests are united by a desire to share their experiences, work, organizations and talents with others. Through a live, hour-long format featuring host/guest interviews and a segment of audience questions for the guest, the goal is to entertain, involve, inform, perhaps, even inspire.
I envision The People Speak as a way of self-empowerment for not only myself, but many others and I hope that anyone who may stumble across our shows, may find a few moments worthy of their attention.
In the end, perhaps what these shows most represent — the heartfelt efforts of those that tried.
