Episode #94 ~ Dr. Laura Schlessinger

An e-mail letter of guest invitation to Dr. Laura Schlessinger from Lynn Thompson of "Living on Purpose" was met with a call back from Dr. Laura's screener, Kimberly, asking Lynn what she would like to talk to Dr. Laura about. Evidently Lynn had the right answers and was granted a phone interview with Dr. Laura in September 2006. At that point Dr. Laura was about to begin touring with her (now famous) one-woman show, in which she appears on the stage with no script only wit and wisdom, and goes on to wow the crowd.

At the end of the interview, Dr. Laura offered Lynn a letter of reference. It was forthcoming shortly afterwards and read: "Your questions were interesting and probing, your style warm and engaging. You are living proof that you don't need to go for the jugular to find the pulse."

On her site you will read news of recent appearances, as well as her upcoming Dr. Laura cruise on the west coast of the continent later in 2008.

Dr. Laura is a strong advocate for families and the welfare of children. She is also supportive of war veterans' families in the US.

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
