Liberty and I love having guests join us on the MY Morning Show to share information about an upcoming special event or just to tell us more about their organization. We're excited that we've been able to introduce you to some incredible people and some equally incredible non-profits here in the Tri-State.

In many cases, we might only meet and interview someone one time, or maybe once a year for an annual event. There are certainly some folks that we talk to on a more regular basis, but even then, we don't normally talk about much more than their organization or their event. What I'm saying is that we don't have the chance to get to know them on a personal level. We really want these people to feel like more than just guests on our show, to us and to you. We want to get to know them a little bit - to learn about some of their interests, so they hopefully become more than a voice and title.

I don't know about you, but I found that I am more engaged, more invested in an event or a cause when I have a personal connection with someone from that organization. We bet that you probably feel the same way, and that's why we started playing a fun little game called This or That with all of our guests. It's a really simple game that accomplishes a couple things. First, it gives us all a chance to learn just a little bit more about the person we're talking to - nothing serious or too deep, just fun stuff. Second, it's a great icebreaker that hopefully puts our guest at ease and takes away any nerves they might be feeling.

Here's an episode of This or That with Glenn Roberts, the Executive Director of the Tri-State Food Bank. It's a big time for the Food Bank. They have been in high gear recently, serving more people with food insecurity than ever, due to the coronavirus shut down and quarantine - and they are busy moving in to their new big, beautiful location. I'm sure you've been wondering if Glenn prefers HGTV or Food Network, or if he cheers for the Cubs or Cardinals. Those are some of the hard-hitting questions we ask during This or That.
