The wonderful thing about the internet is that it expands the stage for discussion on issues which affect us all. For the past two years, It Matters Radio, http://www.blogtalkradio.com/itmatters an internet station headed up by Monica Brinkman and co-hosted by Brenda Brown and Kenneth Weene, has provided an open forum artists, musicians, activists and even audio book publishers!
Over the years, It Matters Radio has featured a wide range of guests – everyone from a peace seeker in the Middle East to a confidante of JFK. As an interviewer, Brinkman is well informed and open-minded.
“I believe we learn something new every single day,” says Brinkman. “If we do not hear different points of view then we are never able to make an intelligent decision.”
To keep the show lively and fun, Co-Hostess Brenda Brown talks with a variety of artists and showcases their music. As head of Brenda Brown Entertainment http://www.indiemytunes.com/, artists and authors alike are able to promote their projects in a number of venues including iTunes and iBooks.
Ken Weene, an author, psychologist and pastoral counselor, brings an interesting and intelligent perspective to the discussions on It Matters Radio. Weene knows a lot about writing having published a book called “Tales from the Dew Drop Inn” http://www.kennethweene.com/
