New York, NY, June 27, 2018 – Westwood One, the largest audio network in the U.S., has launched a special podcast series, “My Side of the Story With Judith Regan,” on Westwood One Podcast Network. Hosted by renowned publisher and media maven Judith Regan, this compelling show features today’s newsmakers, trendsetters, cultural influencers, and troublemakers telling their side of the story, offering new insight into the issues that are the backdrop of American culture in 2018. All eleven episodes of the show are available now for binge listening available on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, WestwoodOnePodcasts.com and the Westwood One Podcasts App for iOS or Android.
Guests on the program include politico Roger Stone, who advises: “Admit nothing, deny everything, launch counterattacks.” Prima Ballerina Toni Bentley shares her #MeToo takeaway: “The intelligent, ambitious intern wants to sleep with the boss.” Christopher Darden reflects on the O.J. Simpson confession and the meaning of justice; and journalist Mitchell Sunderland takes listeners behind-the-scenes of his Penthouse interview with Stormy Daniels, whose heartbreaking childhood reveals what Regan believes should be the new #MeToo movement. Motown’s Suzanne de Passe tells the inside story of discovering an unknown young boy named Michael Jackson; Dr. Drew on how to talk to a killer; Lisa Bloom on why Bill Cosby must serve time; reporter Olivia Nuzzi on beauty, politics and how to get the story in the age of Trump; childhood trauma expert Dr. Bruce Perry offers his expertise on its long lasting effects; CNN’s Michael Smerconish weighs in on both politics and the Harvey Weinstein case; and top political consultant Doug Schoen on Putin and Trump’s power plays.
“Where you stand depends on where you sit. And where you sit might not be in the America you envisioned. I sit down with a wide range of brilliant people who tell their side of the story in unexpected ways. The key to knowledge, change, and coping with the drama of everyday life is to listen and learn,” said Judith Regan. “You’ll learn, as legendary producer Bob Evans once said, that there are three sides to every story. Your side, my side, and the truth. And no one is lying!”
