Joe and Babe #84: Lynn Ames tells it like it is

This week, we’ve got another awesome show for you with our special guest, Lynn Ames! Lynn Ames is an award-winning former broadcast journalist, former press secretary to the New York state senate minority leader, former public information officer for the nation’s third largest prison system, former editor of a national art magazine, and a nationally recognized speaker and CEO of a public relations firm with a particular expertise in image, crisis communications planning, and crisis management.

We chat with Lynn about her writing, journalism, love of sports and how she entered the journalism field (which also helped her writing!)  Lynn is such a multi-talented and traveled individual, one show just didn’t quite cover it all.  We’re pretty sure that she’ll be back.  Joe and Babe kept the usual banter to a minimum this week, but Joe did recount his story of falling out of a chair at Gay Skate this past week (yes, he actually does know how to skate!)

Find Lynn Ames on Facebook and Twitter, and of course, at her official website www.lynnames.com.  Oh yeah, did we mention you should go get about 100 copies of each of her books?  (They make GREAT gifts!)  They’re available in paper and electronic formats, check them out (pardon the pun) at Phoenix Rising Press.

Join Joe and Babe every week live at 1pm for their show with local and national interviews and their own personal takes on the latest news and pop-culture trends.  Leave us a voicemail at (888) 791-9294 or shoot us an email with what’s on your mind!

Joe and Babe #83: Getting Freaky with Dixe Flatlin3

Joe and Babe LIVEBabe is back in the studio this week, and brings a friend of hers, Dix? Flatlin3, to chat with us about all things, well, opposite from the norm.  She writes for Paraphila Magazine (yes, that’s spelled right), which is “an unlicensed, underground creative enterprise that renounces established rules, regulations, guidelines, genres, categories, and all other human made shackles.”  She talks about how she thinks that she started down this type of writing, and how she feels about the future of writing here in the US and beyond.

We chat a bit about the upcoming Olympics, are you getting excited?  And, of course, that whole Chick-fil-A craziness that’s going on.  Our hearts go out to those who lost friends and loved ones in the Colorado theatre shooting.

We run through a few of the upcoming events, including Dancing with the Bars and the SWAY Pool Party at the Hotel Valley Ho.

Compete Radio #308

Compete Radio

Stars fill the lineup for the American League, but on the National side, the list of top players headed for Kansas City seems a bit lopsided… Tiger shows his true iconic stripes as he mounts a comeback in the golf world… Serena sparkles and Federer forges forward as Wimbledon winds down… Fireworks could be ready to erupt in the free agent market as NBA and NHL teams and players become buyers and sellers… and London Olympics prepare to light up the night with a historic rainbow of diversity among athletes across events…

We’re red with intensity, white with excitement, and true blue all-American as we celebrate July fourth in true gay-time sports fashion on this never-too-late-for-Independence-Day edition of COMPETE SPORTS RADIO!

 

Catch Compete Radio LIVE from 6-7 PM MST/PST on Tuesday nights and interact with us through the chat room!  Otherwise, email radio@competenetwork.com to send us an email!

Joe and Babe #81: PFLAG Turns 40!

Joe and Babe LIVEOn this first show in July, we talk to a number of wonderful board members from Phoenix PFLAG, and we’re celebrating the 40th anniversary of the national PFLAG organization.  PFLAG has been a vital part of our community for many years and we learn some of the additional details of what’s involved and who is welcome at their meetings (hint: everyone is!)

What does PFLAG actually do?  How is it funded?  Are there more Ps, Fs or L+Gs involved?  You’d probably be surprised, but it’s a great mix of people who are helping to open hearts and minds and also help with the coming-out process in our own community!  Learn more and get involved at pflagphoenix.org.
