    Singer/Songwriter Heather Powell on The Authentic Woman with Shannon Fisher

    in Women

    This week, The Authentic Woman host, Shannon Fisher, welcomes Heather Powell, an NYC-based actress, singer & songwriter. Heather discovered her love of Musical Theatre at an early age, while traveling the world as an "Army Brat" during her father's career in the U.S. Army. She received a B.A. in Theatre & English from The College of William and Mary, and then embarked upon world travel of her own as an officer in the U.S. Army. Heather has had a rare view of the world in which we live.


    Despite starring in more than 40 plays and musicals throughout Europe & the U.S., it was later in life that she began composing her own songs. While creating material for her one woman show, “MoonPrints,” Heather got a taste for combining music and lyrics - and writing song lyrics followed shortly thereafter, revealing a talent and passion she never knew she had! Heather's first album, “Believe it to Life,” and second album, “A Haze of Grays and Blue,” were produced in collaboration with Tomás Doncker and received critical acclaim.

    Newyorican Girl - Julia Torres Barden on The Authentic Woman with Shannon Fisher

    in Books

    Shannon's guest this week, Julia Torres Barden, an award-winning journalist, gubernatorial appointee, and PTSD survivor. She endured a violent New York City childhood as a Puerto Rican girl from the South Bronx, which she chronicles in her book, “NEWYORICANGIRL…Surviving my Spanglish Life.” This novel/memoir is a gritty tale of trauma and painful cultural assimilation while pursuing the American dream. After navigating a traumatic childhood that included rape, her mother's conflicted life as the mistress of a powerful CEO, alcoholic parents, and forced adoption, Julia found herself trapped in New York City on 9/11.


    "In 2013, I pushed my luck and I lived. I stared down my deepest fears and didn’t back down. I shared my vulnerability with strangers and they embraced me. I took so many risks that I exhausted myself to the brink of disaster. I looked the boogeyman straight in the eye and he blinked first; leaving me victorious and free," said Julia about her memoir.


    The Authentic Woman is a weekly radio show airing Sunday nights at 8:00 pm EST/EDT on the Authors on the Air Global Radio Network. Hosted by women's rights leader, Shannon Fisher, The Authentic Woman shares Perspectives on the Female Experience in America by delving deeply into the worlds of writers, artists, celebrities and community leaders.

    Tanya Tatum of The Tatum Talks on The Authentic Woman with Shannon Fisher

    in Women

    Shannon's guest this week is Tanya Tatum, moderator and producer of The Tatum Talks.  The Tatum Talks began as a series of informal discussions on Facebook and later grew into an open forum for discussing topics affecting the African-American community. Prior to producing TTT, she was the co-Host and Producer for “Live in the Vocal Booth” on BKS1Radio, a show that focused on national headlines.  Tanya serves as a regular op/ed contributor to EURweb.com and has been featured on The Ricky Smiley Morning Show, Essence Magazine and UniteWomen.org. Tanya earned  B.B.A. in Marketing from James Madison University. 


    Tanya has a specific passion for the progression of African-Americans in this country, and tonight we will discuss issues about race that are often misunderstood.  We hope to open some eyes, educate some minds and open a dialogue that we hope will continue past this show.  The only way to understand the experience of another person is to hear it in their own words.  Tonight, the topic will be race relations and the differences in several women's issues between African Americans and Caucasians.

    Ovarian Cancer - Esther Windmueller on The Authentic Woman with Shannon Fisher

    in Health

    This week, we are going to discuss a very serious health topic on The Authentic Woman. Ovarian Cancer is difficult to detect and, therefore, has a high mortality rate because it is often not discovered until it has reached a late stage. 22,000 women receive this diagnosis every year – and 14,000 women die of it annually. 


     


    My guest this week is Esther Windmueller, an ovarian cancer survivor who founded the nonprofit organization Cancer Dancer.  Esther's organization helps women who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer understand the disease, learn all of their options and become aware of all of the newest treatments available - as well as joining these women together in a supportive community so they can connect with others who truly understand their journey.


     


    We will discuss the warning signs of ovarian cancer so our listeners can be informed and recognize a potential problem as early as possible. Through awareness lives can be saved. “The most rewarding part of working with CancerDancer is the feedback from those who say we have really, really helped them through some of the most difficult moments of their lives. Hearing this keeps us going.” ~ Esther Windmueller
