This show was one of the most controversial shows I've ever hosted! First off we discussed the importance of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And with our friend and ally RavenBeauty facing her own battle with this dreaded disease, it made the appeal to all women to think of themselves most poignant. We discussed the recent P&G announcement concerning the agreement reached with Broadway Video Distribution concerning ATWT, AW, Gl, SFT and EON. Without the rising voices of the soap opera movement we believe this step forward may never have happened.

Then we entered into a lively discussion with soap journalist Nelson Branco. Mr. Branco, armed with a cadre of 20 million readers through all his journalistic endeavors, has launched the new Soap Opera: Uncensored, an online magazine filled with the content we've come to appreciate from his years at Suds Report. Unfortunately, things in the soap media world have become as volatile as American politics lately.

The discussion at times is profane, humorous and sometimes a bit contentious. But as with all things Nelson Branco, we are never robbed of honest, robust commentary!

CAUTION: This episode contains profanity. The views expressed by my guests and callers are not the official opinions or views of deLIBERnATION, SudzTV, the Core 4 or any member of the soap opera movement. Any guest or caller is entitled to express their individual opinion. That's what an open forum is all about. If anyone has taken offense, we apologize.

Insofar as comments made by Nelson with regard to Daytime Confidential or Soaps in Depth Magazines, we have always held out the welcome mat for them to appear on our show. Never have I shown disrespect to a guest on this show and would afford anyone an opportunity to discuss their passions.
