Because I Said So Radio

Saturday at 2PM on WSDL

Because I Said So is a 1/2 hour radio show featuring four fabulous women who happen to be moms. The show explores topics that parents face every day - in the grocery store, on the athletic field, in the classroom, and at home.
     We named the show after one of the expressions we swore we'd never say as parents. But alas, it's rolled off all of our tongues at some point.
     Tune in to hear stories that we hope will make you laugh, make you cry, enlighten and entertain.
     The show features Jenni Pastusak, Kim Hudson, Jackie Lanza Jennings and Cathy Bassett, and our producer, Chris Ranck, who chimes in with the dad perspective when we let him. 
     The shows airs on every other Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. after This American Life on WSDL, 90.7 FM
