Let's Talk About It! is a real talk radio program that talks about real issues that affect the lives of real people. Our program launched three years ago as a weekly show on Miami's business station, WZAB (880 "the Biz"), broadcasting throughout South Florida and streaming nationwide. But before becoming a writer and radio host, I spent almost two decades working in communities I call home, from Michigan to New York to Miami, to fix the broken immigration and criminal justice systems. After years of fighting alongside others to fix what is broken in our communities, I realized that we have to also fix the way we talk to each other about repairing what is broken.
I started Let's Talk About It! because I wanted to have a different conversation about the issues that affect us everyday. In the process, the team at Let's Talk About It! has broken stories and created conversations that get us thinking critically and compassionately. We have cut through the spin while seeking common ground on issues as controversial as immigration, guns & violence, economic inequality and wars abroad. We have also put front and center the voices of unsung heroes,from Miami to Egypt, doing the hardest work in our communities.
Now, we are looking to build a new home. We want to create our own studio space and buy our own equipment that will allow us to broadcast the real talk that you have come to expect whenever and where ever we want and you need. Not just an hour a week. Not just in the confines of a brick and mortar radio station. Our vision is to make the communities we call home our studio.
