Q: What’s the number one thing you are working toward that you haven’t yet accomplished?

Q: What is the biggest obstacle you’ve overcome?

Q: What are 3 things you can’t live without?

Q: What would be the theme song of your life?

Q: What is the most rewarding part of your job?
A: Hearing stories about how our show has affected others. We try our best to provide a platform where our listeners feel comfortable, engaged and entertained. We try to be as real as possible and, in return, we receive real stories from our fans about how our form of entertainment has gotten them through rough times. It happens more than you think, and it’s always a sobering reminder about the importance of what we do.
