Radio Shows & Podcasts

Shannon Fisher is the host of The Authentic Woman with Shannon Fisher – Perspectives on the Female Experience in America, a weekly radio talk show (also available by podcast) airing Sunday nights at 8:00 p.m. EST/EDT on the Authors on the Air Global Radio Network. She is also among a small team of hosts of Update-1, the official podcast of the National Press Club, covering the media and current events. Interviewing both well-known public figures and everyday Janes and Joes, Shannon delves deeply into the lives of writers, artists, community leaders, and celebrities.

The Authentic Woman with Shannon Fisher explores nearly every aspect of the American experience – society, politics, career, family, finance, spirituality, creative expression, and sexuality. The show is a sounding board from which guests can dish about their lives, their work, their joys, and their struggles. Each week, Shannon’s guests share the ideas and events that have sculpted their own perspectives – and their societal experience as a whole. We all have a story to tell, and The Authentic Woman with Shannon Fisher is the time and place to tell it.

A seasoned public speaker and performer, Shannon Fisher has worked with Universal Studios, PBS, The Theatre of Note, The Richmond Art Theatre, and The Music Theatre of Southern California. She was trained in Dramatic Vocal Techniques and Method Acting by John Goodlin, Classical and Shakespeare Acting by Jerry Bledsoe, and she has studied with Glenn Close, Vanessa Redgrave, Victoria Wyndham, and Charles Keating. While Shannon has not performed on a stage in more than a decade, she uses her training every day delivering speeches, emceeing live events, conducting interviews, hosting shows, and moderating panels.
