SORT BY Relevancy
In this program, you'll meet the author of the Teen Survival Series, Peggy Hatchet; and you'll learn why she felt the need to write a series of 50 to 70-page booklets to help teens survive their middle passage into young adulthood.
The host will share personal moments of her own teenage years and how she often shudders at how close she came to destruction and didn't realize it. You'll learn that Peggy Hatchet based her decision to champion the cause of young people because of her own turbulent youth. The conversations are open, honest, and focused on one objective...TO EMPOWER THE YOUTH.
Lastly, if time permits, callers get to ask questions and talk about whatever is on their mind, relevant to the subject. If there are no callers, the conversation will rock on. After all, Peggy's objective is to talk...
Conversations are not limited to controversial topics. Young people will endeavor to venture into one or more areas of interest that include education, job careers, the arts, science and mathematics...entrepreneurship, literature and sports. On the other hand, we will also talk about more personal and realistic issues like dating, sex, alcohol and drug-abuse.

Denny Hamlin won the All-Star race beating Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch. It's Hamlin and JGR's first win in the All-Star race as well as Toyota's first win.
Who was impressive? Does this win do anything for you as far as Toyota making gains on the mile and a half? Who were you surprised didn't do well?
Jimmie Johnson potential penalty. Does this matter since it's a non-points event? Should the penalty be stiffer?
Sprint Showdown Friday- Biffle and Boywer transfer- Again does this do anything as far as making gains?
The format. Do you like the format? How was the racing last night?
Also NC Education Lottery 250- Kasey Kahne beats Erik Jones by an inch. Jones ran a great race and dominated most of the event. Kahne's truck fails post race inspection. Thoughts? Will they take the win away?
When will these teams stop cheating? Should drivers start being suspended?
Points in the truck series.

Join us with our guest and co-host, Tom Kyrk of Road Tested Living as we discuss the hottest topics on AskTheTrucker “Live’ Truck Driver Health Open Forum.
Professional drivers are more aware of the dangers of their compromised food supply, the increase in illnesses such as diagnosed diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and increased autoimmune disease.
Because of awareness, truckers are now more concerned and actively involved by taking proactive measures to improve their health.
You know who else has announced they are going to become proactively involved with driver health? The FMCSA. On September 21st and 22nd FMCSA's Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Council ( MCSAC) and the Medical Review Board (MRB) opened up discussion regarding the Health and Wellness of the professional Driver.
Tonight we will discuss this newly announced involved by the FMCSA and determine if becoming involved with truck driver health and wellness is for the earnest regard of the professional driver? Or.... is it to become just one more way the government will become even more involved with driver lives.
We’ll also be discussing , unsafe cookware to avoid in your truck, what kind of diet programs to stay away from, and the new craze on “salts” is there any really any differences?
Be a part of the show tonight. Call in number is 347-826-9170

Tonight is a very solemn topic for truckers, Suicide by Truck, discussing the horrible incidents of pedestrians and four-wheelers, who choose speeding trucks as an instrument of their suicide Although the subject matter is not uncommon among veteran drivers, it's not often a preferred topic of discussion in the chat rooms.
A truck driver whose truck has been randomly chosen as the means to anothers' end, may silently struggle for years with the horrific guilt and graphic memories of the incident.
Our guest tonight on AskTheTrucker Live is Carolyn Magner Mason, special contributor for Overdrive Magazine.
Carolyn has recently written the eerily popular “Suicide by Truck” 4 part series for Overdrive Magazine.

There are things each community or neighborhood can do to make every possible effort to help their young people be successful. Too many communities overlook their own resources; together, they can do many positive, supportive things for their young people.
Another resouce communities have are their churches. Most residents attend their neighborhood church; pay tithes inside that institution; and have close personal ties with the members. It would be easy for mothers to organize a support network so that no more latch-key kids will be vulnerable; parents can tutor each other's kids; and babysit for each other.
In other words, the TEEN SURVIVAL SERIES wants to address all weaknesses affecting our teenagers' futures; and eliminate tragedies that happen because of them.
This discussion: "Things We Can Do As A Community To Help Our Young People" is sure to create new alliances among parents, in an effort to make new strides in supporting our teenagers. It's a hot topic...don't miss it.
