Wow. It's a long, long way from Episode 1 back in February of 2011. What started as a 15 minute rant about Rush Limbaugh has turned into a 90 minute show that has recorded roughly 150,000 listens. All I can do is say "thank you" to all of you who made it possible.
I've interviewed 40 people since show #300 and all of them were special in their own way. Whether it was a reality TV star or a star the interviews were a lot of fun. It makes me feel really good about the show to not only know that everyday people listen, but that celebrities want to be a part of T2Q as well. It's always great to have stars on now and then.
However, I cannot neglect my real stars. I could not have made it this far without my Show Legends. Each of them bring something special to the table and for that I'm extremely grateful. My Original 3: Buck, Ray, and M&M have been with me for somewhere between 350 and 375 episodes.
Tonight, the show is all about them. In what way? You'll find out once you tune into the 400th Talk 2 Q Radio Show!

To learn more about how to prepare an adoptive parent profile, host Dawn Davenport interviewed Madeleine Melcher, an adoptee, mother of three through adoption, the owner of Our Journey to You (an adoption portfolio design company), and author of the new book How to Create a Successful Adoption Portfolio: Easy Steps to Help You Produce the Best Adoption Profile and Prospective Birthparent Letter; and Aki Parker, the National Marketing and Design Associate at the North Carolina branch of the Independent Adoption Center. In addition to marketing/designing nationally, she has also worked with adoptive families providing consultation on their letters and online profiles.
