Turi Ryder, author of “She Said What? (A Life on the Air)” has hosted her own radio shows in LA, Chicago, Minneapolis, and Portland. She gives advice, which you probably should not take, and tells stories, which you probably should not believe.

Marci Persky spent years reporting and editing for UPI and other news organizations. She's worked in radio news and as a talk show host, for stations from her hometown of Kalamazoo Michicgan and her second home, Chicago. Marci now lives in Arizona, somewhere near the Grand Canyon, where she helps run an animal shelter, a political organization, and a hospice-supporting thrift store. Clearly, she likes to run things.

    Write Your Own Obituary

    Write Your Own Obituary

    Someone much beloved in the radio business has passed away, and Turi has obituary envy. Marci offers to write one for her in advance. Pickled herring: a married man’s barrier against starvation. Marci may or may not give up her abusive relationship (she’s the victim)…with her recently adopted dog.

    Egg Machine

    Egg Machine

    What writers do when they’re supposed to be writing. A little too much volunteering. Ten dollar a dozen eggs, and the machine that will not cook them. Marci plans for a wedding. Dining near the Grand Canyon, or, Door Dash by donkey.

    The Yellow Snow Emergency

    Houseguests and Hygiene

    Houseguests and Hygiene

    There’s no time you dislike your houseguests more than when you clean up after they leave. No good deed goes unpunished—the time Turi’s guest left her with a disgusting reminder of his stay. Wax paper—yes, one can argue about it. We pick at our food, and on the restaurant on which the movie “The Menu” may have been based.  Marci and Siri and Alexa, oh my.
