The Dec 30 ep was amazing

Learned a lot about what is really going on on the Broadway.

Tonya tells it like it is

Tonya's show is fantastic. She talks about topics other hosts would shy away from. Tonya's discussions make me examine my own thoughts & perspectives. Everyone should take a listen!

Tonya Pinkins makes her guest feel so at home....

It’s called “You Can’t Say That” but Tonya Pinkins makes her guests feel so at home that they feel comfortable enough to say this, that, and the other thing. These are more than standard interviews. I listen and it makes me feel like I’m eavesdropping on some old friends having a private conversation at the “grown folks” table.
