The People Speak host

The People Speak has evolved over the years with many great guests who have been interviewed by some very fine hosts.

We are a 55 minute show airing every other Sunday between 5-6pm Pacific/8-9pm Eastern. The show features a guest interview from any number of realms of interest (entertainment, science, philosophy, healing, spirituality, activism, politics, literature, etc.).

The guests share their stories, lives, strategies, books, philosophy, films, music, or whatever it is they use as a vehicle for making a difference for the better.

The radio show name, The People Speak, is based on the idea of allowing our audience - the People - a chance to interact with the guests during the hour, and we take phone or text questions from them during the interview.

Past guests include such notables as Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu, the late Howard Zinn, Nobel Laureates Mairead Maguire, Shirin Ebadi, Kathryn Najimy, Oliver Stone, Jesse Ventura, Richard Belzer, Cynthia McKinney, Cindy Sheehan, Scott Horton, Joan Jett, Willie Nelson, George Galloway, Roseanne Barr, Ed Asner, Chevy Chase, as well as various reps from Amnesty International, UN World Food Programme, and many others.

Producer Mike Kim
the Producer of The People Speak radio show

I am the producer of The People Speak radio show, which has evolved over the years; many fine hosts have interviewed many great guests. The show has been an on-going work of love, continually evolving with new hosts and guests, who are trying to 'Make a Difference for the Better'.

Most radio shows seem to focus on the's all about the host - ego driven. I have tried to make The People Speak about the guests and their message - hopefully a message that inspires, educates, expands the horizon of hopes, dreams and actions of the listeners who are invited to participate.

I've noticed once the ego fulfillment of many talk show hosts are met or played out, their show comes to an end as well. That may be why The People Speak continues, because the way I see it, The People Speak isn't about one person or even one species, it's about the Human Condition and the planet and universe as we know it. The Human Condition is as dire and possibly as ripe for change for the better now more than ever. The need to reach people with stories and strategies for peace and positive action remains and continues. Hence, The People Speak continues as well!

Much Love, Peace, Health, Prosperity, and Joy to All,

Mike Kim/Producer

Thank you for the interview with Dr. Steven Greer. He is one of the most intelligent men of our time, no doubt!


It was very good referring to Willy Nelson's answers. He certainly is a man who truthfully says what he thinks and feels. I think that's why I always liked his songs. He projects that honesty in his songs and voice. It was great!
