We will soon be airing our 900th show, and I would like to thank my faithful listeners for tuning in and for making me one of the top 300 hosts on Blog Talk Radio. Over these past few years we have covered a diverse range of topics welcoming guests from the world of business, politics and entertainment. Memorable shows include our January 2013 segment "Guns In America: Are Our Children Safe" in which I talk with Women Against Gun Violence President Laurie Saffian. Also check out my December 18th segment in which I talk with a guest panel that includes 2x Mr. Universe Winner Nordine Zouareg about the problem of Bullying In Our Schools.
