Curious Muriel interviews Local Lux on Blog Talk Radio [The “Air” Waves]

Who knew that being interviewed on Blog Talk Radio would be so much fun? Well, I did! But that doesn’t mean I wasn’t shaking in my booties as I called in. But, after all is said and done, I can’t imagine how anyone would have anything but fun while being interviewed by Rashmi Biswas and Wendy Bodner Matthews – the hosts of Curious Muriel.

Curious Muriel is an online blog talk radio show dedicated to, and curious about, health and happiness.

Airing live every Thursday, and hosted by these two Canadian women entrepreneurs, it was my pleasure to chat with them about my new venture – You can click on the image below to launch the site and listen to my 15 minutes of fame:

So, for a little fun, to turn the tables on these ladies that are used to interviewing others, I sent them the same questions they asked me. Here’s a little something about these Curious Muriels you may not have known:

Q: Where do you get your inspiration?
A: Our inspiration comes from our own curiosities.  From people we meet, world events anything that peeks our interests and each other (just from talking and wherever that leads us).
Q: What kind of feedback have you received from your listeners?
A: Positive and constructive.  We love to hear from our audience as well as our guests.
Q: How do you feel Curious Muriel contributes to the health & happiness of your listeners?
A: By sharing ideas and opening up possibilities.  Introducing people to new ideas and experiences.
Q: Please share your favourite Local Luxuries with my readers.
A: The Hillebrand Restaurant, Shaw Festival, Mahtay Café, the Niagara Yoga scene, Happy Being Me store, Library’s, and the whole green, health and happiness movement that is starting.  Best of all we have all the beautiful wineries and festivals in our area.
