At some point, we’re all going to get to that point where we say “How the hell did I get to be 50?”. It’s even worse when that number flips to starting with a six. But this isn’t a time for decline, absolutely not. It’s time to live! And I’ve got one or two opinions on the whole thing. 😇

THE DIALOGUE is not a political commentary show. We do not preach the good word of one party over another. Everyone is equal as far as affiliation, but diverse in their support of all things human. We bring to light those who would put corporations, greed, and self-interest above the growth of humanity. We celebrate those who step up and do wonderful things. And we explore opportunities that can help us all. Not in a political way. Just in a human one.
