What happens when a guest, unfortunately, cancels on “game day”? You “pivot” and guess what? I am going to be featuring ME today!!! Yes, you read that correctly. Who knows Marsha Wietecha better? You can listen in today at 1:00PT to the live broadcast on the Born To Talk Radio Show Podcast.
Where it all began…
In November of 2013, I started writing the Born To Talk Radio Show Blog. Writing, along with photography and a love for music, was a great method of expression.
In April of 2015, my Blog got a voice when my weekly internet radio hosting career began. I’ve had conversations with a wide variety of guests that range from Non-profits, Entrepreneurs, Authors, Actors, Musicians, Athletes, and people in the community all with a story to share. For nearly three years, my show was broadcast with an audio and visual feed from the LA Talk Live studio right in my hometown of Westchester. I loved the opportunity to have my guests join me face to face.
In March of 2018, the Born To Talk Radio Show became a Podcast! This gives me the wonderful opportunity of having guests from anywhere in the country join me each Monday from 1-2 PT
Born To Talk
Let’s take a look back. I wrote this many years ago, and guess what? This still describes me today!
Born to Talk describes me perfectly. I love nothing better than meeting new people wherever I go. It could be in a foreign country and equally exciting, standing next to someone in line at the market. I am the one that will smile at you and say hello. If you are wearing something that identifies something about you; a vacation shirt, a volunteer shirt, or a sports shirt or hat, I’m most likely going to engage you in conversation. Or perhaps you have the cutest sweater, necklace, or pair of shoes; just about anything that strikes some interest. Honestly, if you just have a pleasant smile, that’s about all I need to know, there’s always the weather that opens a conversation.
I’m an equal opportunity talker, young or old, man or woman; I think everyone has a story to tell.
Here’s my story. I was born and raised in the community of Westchester California, (a small community within Los Angeles) where I continue to live today. I was married for 38 years until my husband, Butch passed away unexpectedly over 13 years ago at the Staples Center. We have two married kids, 2 grand dogs, and 2 grand cats.
As with any unexpected life-altering experience, I’ve had to adjust. Fortunately for me, I am surrounded by incredible friends. One of my friends offered me some advice shortly after Butch passed away, she said, “never say no to an invitation.” I took her seriously and haven’t looked back.
You will be entering my world which includes interests in people, non-profits, and sports, I look forward to sharing this with you because I was Born To Talk.
Here are the people I mentioned today and their websites:
