    I consider myself enormously fortunate to have people in my life who share my enthusiasm and give me heartfelt support. But have also been people who don't do so. I recall moments when my encounters and conversations made me feel unworthy, stupid, unloved, offended, fearful, and even sick. We can call them energy vampires—the people who only “take” from you, and leave you feeling emotionally drained. Energy vampires can be your family, friends, clients, colleagues, teachers, neighbors, lovers, or even strangers. 'Ever feel drained after being around someone or in a certain environment? We'll candidly explore Energetic Vampires in the Let That Go! Show Sunday, October 2nd at 7pm EST. Happy October!!!!' Kassira McKee

    Guests: Lisa Gail Johnson, Danielle @DsEnlightenedEdits 

    (The following paragraph is based on postings on Facebook when I asked what saying goodbye to September meant...) Now we will be saying Hello to sweater-weather. Saying hello to Autumn in New York! Take the hot weather with you, September, and don't let the door hit you on the way out! Saying hello to my favorite season and long walks in the cool crisp air. Letting go of a lot of material stuff that I don't use, don't desire, could better serve someone else, or else I'm in the process of using it up (if it's something that can be used up, like candles).

Richard Skipper is just the best!

During one hour conversations with these great artists (and sometimes, those you haven’t heard of yet), Richard manages to bring out the very essence of these peoples interests and careers. You can learn about, say, the PERSON Ruta Lee, not just the actress!! Through his warm and kind personality, he brings the best out of his interviewees. I will forever be honored to have been celebrated myself—it was one of the best days of my life!

The greatest guest on the greatest show/podcast!

If you hesitate - what kind of music to listen to and which one is really significant - please listen to the podacst with Charles Kirsch.
The host Richard Skipper ( I know him for a long time) is an amazing host, who bring you into the world of this young (very young!) guy, who loves and perfectly knows Broadway and the classical Americans songs.
You will fall in love with Broadway tunes and will recognize a young talent!

Richard’s Great!

Richard Skipper’s podcasts are fun and informative. He’s a great host and always has something wonderful to talk about. The variety of topics and guests seems to never end. Richard knows everyone and everyone knows (and likes) him, so we get a wonderful peek into his world of show business, and what a world it is.

Richard Skipper Presents is a tonic that helps me escape from our crazy times. You can’t ask for more. Thank you, Richard!!
