Key West Writer/Publicist Carol Shaughnessy: "Today's the Day"
2 days ago
On his last day in Key West, Florida in August, Dennis visits the home of local writer and publicist Carol Shaughnessy to hear her recall the extraordinary tale of legendary local treasure hunter Mel Fisher and his 16-year quest to find sunken Spanish treasure off the coast of Key West. Carol talks about her personal connection to the story, the everyday artifact they found that captured her imagination, what happened after the big discovery, the resulting Supreme Court case and how the story exemplifies the independent spirit of Key West. Carol also talks about how she ended up moving to Key West from Minnesota (it involves a pink taxi), the day it rained emeralds and the way the people of Key West support each other in the pursuit of their dreams. Other topics include: the giant sea-to-sea rainbow flag that traversed the island in 2003, her favorite bad movie, her hidden talent and her hardcore "Murder She Wrote" habit. www.fla-keys.com

DENNIS ANYONE? Yes please!
Do you want to know what it's really like to struggle as an artist? Do you have great affection for what you do, know you have the skills, and STILL can't catch a break? Well, take a stool next to Dennis Hensley and marvel at his conversational skills with such wonderful guests as James La Rosa, Willem Belli, Bryan Thompson and Jonathan Tolins. Dennis' travails come through loud and clear. There's a through line here, no matter who is on as his guest, which resonates so deeply with me, and hopefully should for you too. He makes people open up and tell the truth. It's a gift worth celebrating.
