My experience at the Tess Talk! radioshow was exceptional. Everyone from the program helped create a nurturing and participatory environment. While I've been on television several times, it was my first appearance on a radio show.


Everyone on staff has a terrific personality which made it all the more comfortable for sharing. The whole crew made me feel welcome and relaxed enough to discuss personal information about my life with a disability.
