    Ep. 27 | Shepard Smith - Defining Journalism

    On and off air, this week’s guest is on a mission “to seek the truth, find the truth, and tell the truth”.

    Shepard Smith is broadcast journalist best known for his 23-year career at Fox News Channel, which he joined at its 1996 inception and where he served as chief anchor and managing editor of the breaking news division.

    He returned to the news desk this past fall with NBC News and CNBC, where he serves as chief general news anchor and hosts The News with Shepard Smith. @thenewsoncnbc

    We could not be more thrilled that he agreed to sit down with us to discuss changes in news reporting and the effects that opinion presented as news has on our society. Ultimately we answer this question: “How do we as consumers balance news and opinion journalism to develop a more accurate worldview?”

    The visual episode premieres Wednesday, April 14 at 10am on the @crimestoppersofhouston Facebook & YouTube page.

    Ep. 23 | Matthew McConaughey - Greenlights

    Ep. 23 | Matthew McConaughey - Greenlights

    This week on #TheBalancedVoicePodcast we are thrilled to welcome Texas’s very own Matthew McConaughey!

    In his debut book ‘Greenlights’, Matthew bares it all as he walks the reader throughout his unique journey thus far. Personal photos and journal writing are shared along with lessons learned from his real experiences with family, love, fatherhood and faith.

    In our conversation, we unpack how his most raw and vulnerable “red” and “yellow” light moments that he writes about, helped him catch “greenlights” and become the person he is today.

    From his foundation that aims to keep kids from choosing a life of crime by providing them with opportunities to lead healthy lives, to his ongoing dedication to The Lone Star State, it is clear that he is a person that cares deeply about the next generation and the world around him.

    In this encouraging and packed conversation we discover what it means to live in the present, honor the past, and advocate for a better future.

    Join us this Wednesday, March 10th at 10am CST on the @crimestoppersofhouston Facebook page!
