Yesterday I was interviewed by Maia Rodriguez for KSQD’s “Talk of the Bay” radio program. It was my very first time live on the air. I was one of four other programmers to be interviewed about our own radio programs, why we are doing them and what we hope listeners will get from them. I must say it was a humbling experience as I found being on the other side of the microphone to be both exciting and a little nerve-wracking. Like so many of my guests, I over-prepared. And then when the time came to actually talk, I decided to take my own advice. I put down my notes, I just looked up at my interviewer and very quickly found myself deep in conversation with her about what I really care about. And like with so many of my guests, what came out was a genuine conversation that also had some good information in it. This experience just increased my compassion and respect for the remarkable people who have already said yes to being interviewed and recorded for my own STATE OF MIND radio show. My deepest gratitude to all you courageous souls!
I am so excited to let you know that the new listener-supported community radio KSQD 90.7 FM went live and started broadcasting this past Friday! And I’m thrilled to be one of the many volunteer programers airing shows that are for and about our community. My first episode of “STATE OF MIND: Being Human and Living Well,” a show featuring conversations about mental health and wellness here on the central coast will go out over the airways this Sunday February 17th, 6-7 PM Pacific Time on KSQD 90.7 FM. In Episode # 3, Debra Sloss, LMFT is joined by parent advocate Heidi Korokowski and gender therapist Daniel Blumrosen, LMFT to talk about the unique and often challenging experience of parenting a transgender child, how to provide support and where to find help and support yourself. Join us for the live broadcast, or you can listen later to the podcast by streaming or downloading it from the KSQD.org website HERE!
