Doug Fabrizio is top notch
RADIOWEST has been a part of my podcasting life for over 15 years. The combination of Doug’s interviewing skills and the always interesting and relevant show topics make it one of my favorites.
Doug Fabrizio is 💯
I’ve been listening to RadioWest since I was a teen, over fifteen years ago. I remember carrying my radio around with me as I did summer chores listening to Doug interview authors about books. I think Doug helped me really get into reading and helped me learn to ask hard, critical questions.
I moved away after college and could now longer listen on the radio, but by then I could listen to episodes online. I’ve listened in from California and now from Tokyo.
I know someday Doug may give it up, but I hope that day doesn’t come for a long time. Thanks for all that work day in day out to make such a great show. This little review doesn’t do my gratitude justice, but I’ll head on over to KUER donations page now... 🥰
The only bad reviews are by mormons. Should they be listening Radio West anyway? I mean, is it even on the Approved reading/watching list from the brethren? Brothers and Sisters- you need to be more careful! Wouldn’t want you to hear an outsider perspective- could be detrimental to your salvation.
