Steppin’ Out Radio: True Stories of Inspiration and Transformation

posted by Beyond Blue

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to be interviewed by Steppin’ Out Radio in New York City. The show is hosted by WABC-TV’s anchor and sports director, Scott Clark. He’s also a recovering alcoholic who is passionate about helping other addicts come to terms with their addiction. I am going to interview both he and Denise McIntee, the producer of the show, in a later blog because both of them have fascinating stories.

 

But I just wanted to make you aware of this wonderful resource. By going to their website at www.steppinoutradio.com, you can click on my interview. Or click here to go straight to the MP3.

My interview is similar to what twelve-steppers would call a “lead,” when you tell your story. You describe what your life was like, what happened, and what it’s like now. You attempt to share your experience, strength, and hope with others to help the fellow addict. It’s basically my book, “Beyond Blue” in a 40-minute radio show.

On their website, you will see a slew of other links to some great resources.

Happy listening!

    Therese,
    I plan on listening to this and I also have a question…
    I just got XM radio in my car and I am wondering what channel you are on and when.
    Thanks,

    Therese,
    I LOVED this broadcast! U are so witty and funny. U have such a good sense of humor I got a kick out of some of the things u said. I know they were on serious topics/events in your life but your light hearted approach made it hard to believe I was listening to my friend T who has in recent mths been struggling with depression/relapse.
    Thanks for being you and for sharing yourself with us! Love ya girl,
    Mary Anne

    Could you do me a favor? Put the headline of your blog entry into the headline of each e-mail newsletter you send out. That would help me to review the headlines and see which ones to open. I’m unable to read all of the Beliefnet: Beyond Blues, but that would help prompt me to open the ones I need to read. Thanks for the good work!

    I enjoyed listening to your interview. It’s always good to hear the sound of laughter coming from someone who has been struggling. Thank you for doing what you do. You have a great gift, keep sharing it. Your work has such a ripple effect – you inspire/help/encourage/educate one person and they pass that on and it just goes from there all because you shared a word of enlightenment. Your illness has purpose.
