Guests' Thoughts  

"I so thoroughly enjoyed being in conversation with Mischa. It isn't often I find myself in the interviewee seat. Mischa has such an easy, lovely demeanor, she immediately puts her guests at ease."

MICHAELA PEREIRA

Former CNN & Good Day LA Anchor

"When I was interviewed by Mischa this past summer to talk about the effect of COVID-19 and its impact on the mental health of the Black community, I truly felt I was talking to a trust friend. Her pace, her knowledge, and her enthusiasm inspired me to think out-of-the-box, and together we shared empowering and inspiring information."

"The moment I met Mischa Duffie I was in awe.  She is warm, passionate, friendly and regards all as her friend.  Mischa has the amazing talent for knowing how to ask the right questions of her author guests to not only put them at ease but to also draw out the very best the author has to give to the listening audience.  She is the consummate moderator in every way possible.  I was honored to have been on her show. "

"I recently had the opportunity to be interviewed by Mischa on her radio show. From start to finish, the experience was absolutely delightful. Mischa is a warm and engaging host who made me feel comfortable and at ease from the moment we started talking. She asked thoughtful and deep questions, and I truly appreciated the opportunity to be a part of her show. She is an absolute delight to work with, and an absolute delight of a human being."
