Talk with Tenney


Follow This Show

Stay in the know about new episodes and updates.
You don't have to be mad to call in . . . But it helps. From abuse, torture, murder, and slavery coordinated by organized psychiatry to current events and critiques of modern society, we will talk. Have a news tip? Want to be a guest? Have an idea for a show? Call the Talk with Tenney Tip Line: (516)319-4295 24-hours a day. It can be anonymous or you can leave a number for me to follow up with you. In a burst of energy in the middle of the night of May 16, 2014, I decided to establish a call-in radio talk show. Uncertain of what this really entailed, I embarked on this journey and have become more amazed with each step. I am amazed at the response and thank all of the people who have assisted in making this happen! Guests, from the United States and Canada have included people who are: Psychiatric survivors; Users of psychiatry; Advocates; Activists; Life Coaches; Peer workers; Spiritualists; Veterans; Authors of books and articles on psychiatry and anti-psychiatry; Psychologists who work to expose psychiatry; and Those who have stumbled over the show, calling in to learn about these human rights violations that psychiatry commits, which they thought were long-ended. Yvonne Z. Smith has been running "Late Night with a Hero" on this platform for nearly as long! May 2020 starts the sixth year of the Talk with Tenney platform. More conversations! More Open Lines! More Anything Goes! I am booking Summer shows now! Contact me to get involved.
