Episode Fifty – Anne Carlini Download

41:45 Download March 8th, 2019

Anne Carlini has been rocking the airwaves at 101.1 WRIF in Detroit for over 20 years! She is undoubtedly one of the most recognizable voices on the radio, and she is a favorite among her station’s listeners. I am very blessed to know her. Anne is an inspiration to both men and women who are pursuing a career in broadcasting, and she has first hand knowledge of how the industry has changed for women.

Anne was born and raised in the Motor City, and I must admit, her voice is one of the reasons I wanted to get involved in broadcasting. One of the issues with my industry over the years, it has been a “boy’s club”, but radio and television have change. Anne and I discuss the changes, the lack of on air roles for women, and powerful women who are at the top in this industry.  We also have a discussion about woman who have changed the course of rock and roll, and how to entice young women to become icons in the music industry.

Anne also has a podcast, and I love it! If you want to check it out, here is the LINK.

In the second half of the podcast, I am always joined by Cyndy Schalter-Salsido from Turning Point Macomb. This week we talk about the recent arrest of New England Patriot’s owner Robert Kraft for alleged involvement in the solicitation of prostitution. A former Hollywood madam says we should be thanking him for the media attention and gives insight to why she thinks prostitution should be legal everywhere.

Hollywood Madam: Want to stop human trafficking? Legalize consensual sex for money.

Why would a wealthy and powerful man like Robert Kraft allegedly pay for sex from women at a Florida strip-mall massage parlor? Don't overthink it.

Cyndy and I also discuss why some women regret the decision they made to stop having children. A blog post over the weekend went viral, and women everywhere have been commenting on the challenges of deciding to be a Mom or not.

We're done having kids and it hurts a little

Somewhere between the blazing pink lines on the First Response and the third happiest day of my life, there was a shift.

Last but not least, enough with the challenges already! We had the “Tide Pod Challenge”, the “Bird Box Challenge” and even the “Momo Challenge”, but the latest one is just plain dumb. It’s called the “Cheese Challenge” and involves literally throwing cheese at unsuspecting babies. No, I am not making this up. Some guy here in Michigan came up with it, and it went viral.

People fling slices of cheese at babies in new internet challenge started by Michigan dad

We know adults do the cheesiest things online at times, but this new internet challenge takes the cake. Or in this case, the cheese.

Turning Point is ALWAYS here to help!!!!!!
