Follow This Show

Stay in the know about new episodes and updates.
In-Depth conversations with authors, musicians, artists, artisans and dreamers. The Wine Muse is every 3rd Thursday of the month with cohost William Pollard. Linda Rez got her start in print journalism as editor of a weekly newspaper. During her time there she started a column called "The Devil's Advocate" where she invited two different people every week with polar opposite view points to weigh in on the same topic, side by side. She believes the truth can only triumph if every viewpoint is heard and respected. She is also a musician, (piano, keyboard and flute), writer of poetry and short story fiction, and a crazy horsewoman. Her favorite saying is, "Your GIFT is your DESIRE!" Go for it. Create. Believe. Make your life count! www.minstrelandmuse.com
