Callers And E-Mailers As Guests

by | Apr 17, 2013

As part of an ongoing effort to continue experimenting with different approaches to presenting guests and information on “Talking Animals”–and a parallel desire to give voice to a broader array of animal organizations and leaders–we returned to a format we try to employ once or twice a year.

radio_mikeWe invited people to call in and talk on-air for a few minutes each about the animal organization they run or volunteer with, highlight a forthcoming benefit or other event, or otherwise briefly discuss animal-related matters. We took these calls randomly, and ended up speaking to a wonderful array of folks about an equally wonderful array of animal organizations, projects, events and more.  large_Cat_Animals_Work_Computer_Fun_45769(And today, in contrast to past times we’ve done these shows, there was a sizable contingent of people who participated via e-mail.)

Among the organizations represented in the calls: Pinellas County Animal Services, Conserve It Forward, Florida Voices For Animals, League of Humane Voters—Florida, Defenders of Wildlife, and Great Greyhound of Tampa. ( , , ,, ,
