My First Radio Interview on Hep C
« on: February 11, 2016, 02:24:42 pm »
Here are the links to the podcasts of the first radio interview I have given about my own Hep C story and the issues surrounding Hep C in general (drug pricing, the need for everyone to get tested, ending the stigma, etc.).

I gave one interview, which the host edited down to 2 different podcasts for 2 different health-related radio shows she hosts (Boil the Frog Slowly, and Speak Up and Stay Alive). The second show below is a shortened version of the first show:

Boil The Frog Slowly, 43 minutes
Hosts: Pat Rullo & Sebastian Sanzotta

Speak Up and Stay Alive, 20 minutes
Host: Pat Rullo

Two weeks ago, I posted here on the forums about my "Coming Out Party & Book", in case anyone wants the background on these radio interviews:

Wellness to all,

Thanks Else! :) I think tapping in to our creative energy - however we choose to do that, and especially in a difficult situation - is always the path to empowerment.
