In this episode, hosts Alan Sanders and Walt Murray interview radio personality, Veronica Harrell. Veronica actually started her college career with a desire to be a movie director. As fate would have it, she got a job in radio on a small conservative talk station in Jackson, Michigan. That role led to another role back in Detroit. Before she knew it, her husband was transferred to Atlanta and she found another radio job in that market. That role led to some fill-in news and supplemental roles on stations in the Atlanta metro. This got the attention of some of the leadership with WSB and Veronica Harrell was brought in to be a part-time news person. That's when Doug Turnbull of the WSB traffic center asked if she wanted to learn traffic reporting. She made the move and is currently heard six days a week giving traffic reports to the Atlanta listening audience. Veronica also likes using social media to put out messages of positivity. She likes being upbeat, not just for herself, but also for her daughter in college.

Walt does not recommend watching any of The Walking Dead episodes since Rick left the show. He does, however, highly recommend, Dirty John on Netflix. Alan is binging the television show, The Good Place with Kristen Bell and Ted Danson. Alan also watched the film Peppermint with Jennifer Garner and really enjoyed the movie for what it was. Veronica suggests The Nightstalker, Hotel Cecil and The Equalizer with Queen Latifah.

Walt is reading, "The 50 Year Mission - The First 25 Years," by Edward Gross and Mark Altman. Alan suggested the audio book, "Control Your Mind and Master Your Feelings." Veronica loves crimes novels and is currently reading, "The Woman in the Window," by A.J. Finn.

Walt started to listen to The History of the Marine Corps podcast and is really liking it. He also wants to plug The Pod Clubhouse and Geek to Me Radio. Alan said that when he wants something mellow and quiet to have on in the background, to give the New Age group 2002 a try.
