“The Lisa Wexler Show” is the realization of Lisa Wexler’s dream to host a radio show that would be live, informative and entertaining. The format is a combination of opinion, interview and call-ins from listeners. The only criteria for guests is that they be people who are doing something with their lives that they are passionate about and who wish to share something interesting or important with others. Lisa’s passion is to host authentic conversations among guests and the audience while showing respect for a variety of opinions on the same subject. She particularly loves politics, all things green, children’s issues, the advancement of women’s rights, and the theater. She also loves to laugh.
