On the Air
Donna O’Donnell Figurski & Kim Justus
(interview to tell David’s TBI story)
I was surprised when I got a Private Message from one of the Brain Injury Radio Network hosts one evening while I was browsing through the many Traumatic Brain Injury sites that I belong to on Facebook. The host, Julie Kintz (“Quantum Leap”), asked if I’d be interested in becoming a BIR host too and referred me to Kim Justus, who is in charge of recruiting new hosts.
Of course, I was interested, but I wondered if I could even do something like this. I told David (my husband), and, surprisingly, he encouraged me. (He usually worries that I’ll take on too much.) I was glad for his encouragement, but I wasn’t convinced yet and threw the idea around with several close friends. They also gave me their “thumbs up.” I agreed to do it!
Then Kim invited me to be a guest on her show (“Recovery Now”) as a Traumatic Brain Injury caregiver. She wanted me to tell an abridged version of David’s and my story of our travels in the TBI maze.
I am featured in the first two hours of Kim’s three-hour show. You can listen by clicking the link below. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.
My show, “Another Fork in the Road,” will debut on Monday, August 4, 2014, at 5:00 pm Pacific time. It will air the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month. On that show, I will tell a more complete version of our tale based on my book, “Prisoner Without Bars: Conquering Traumatic Brain Injury,” which is searching for a publisher. I hope to see you there.
Subsequent shows will feature interviews with TBI survivors and caregivers and offer brain injury resources and interviews with professionals in the field of TBI. There will also be discussions on current topics of interest.
