Me Kimba: Radio Broad Cast
23 minutes | May 1, 2021
I zoomed with the University of Florida GHQ radio staff at their final 'All In' meeting of the semester. We chat about all things radio. It's very much an inside or behind-the-scenes look and listen as to what we do ... or try to do. Thanks to Glenn Richards and Rob Harder for making it happen.If you haven't already, please subscribe to this podcast! Thanks.

You've been waiting for another episode? #MeToo Aw, don't be #scerred. You've seen the news reports. You've maybe heard the segments on anything from Full Frontal to the Daily Show to CBS Sunday Morning. Everyone is talking about sexual harassment, whether in the workplace or out in the streets. I touch on some of the harassment stories I, or some of my colleagues, have experienced in radio.I don't name anyone because they are not all solely my stories. Do you really want to know who walked up and sniffed a female DJ's hair? Would it matter to you now? This 'cast is more just a way to let you know that this stuff happens, and it happens all the time. We deal with it all the time. And we keep on keeping' on.

Oh Santa, Hear My Plea
Ahhh, the holidays! For radio DJs, it's a chance to get a little extra creative. For this radio DJ, that meant writing a Christmas blues song some 30 years ago - if you dare, you'll hear it in this episode. You'll hear 'holiday wishes' promos from my colleagues of yore, and one of the more 'dark' bits I did every year around this time, 'The Fate of Santa'. #don't judgeWishing you the merriest of Christmases and happiest of New Years!

I Would Swallow My Pride
I visit some embarrassing moments from my career in Episode 4 'Ain't Got No Regrets'. I've since thought of a few more and share them in this episode. When you're doing live radio, in real-time, there's not much you can do when something goes wrong. In the case of the interview I talk about in this episode, it wasn't live but was funny enough to air, warts and all.If you have a request(ion) - anything you'd like to know about radio, please reach out to me:Email - email@example.comIG/Twitter- @me_kimbaFacebook.com/MeKimbaVodcast - YouTube.com/HerKimba

I'm often asked about the most famous person I've met/interviewed. Since that's subjective, I put the requestion to you. I ask you to vote on your choice in the music and actor/celebrity category. This 'cast features the top two vote-getters from each category. One talks about their feet, one speaks of respect, one talks furry cuffs, and one cackles upon hearing my reincarnation wish. Thanks for your votes and I hope you enjoy!

Gonna Use My, My, My, Imagination
One of the best things about radio is the theater of the mind aspect. I'm joined by my favorite collaborator, Dave Corey, to talk about how creativity is integral to radio. You'll hear various audio bits that may or may not have actually happened, but therein lies the power of the aural medium. As always the video version can be found at YouTube.com/HerKimba.
