Put-Down Humor

When does 'teasing behavior' cross a line to create real conflict and what to do about it?

As one of our guests, professional and life coach Peter Vajda writes: "In Western culture, the biting, sarcastic, demeaning put-down has become an art form - everywhere - TV, movies, talk radio, sports events, journals and magazines.

William Carlos Williams stated, "No idea but in things." And "things" become the prompt for Anne Farrell, Bob Kanegis, Seth Friedman and (are complemented by) singer/songwriter Chuck Barry. Back Roads Radio is hosted and produced by Judy Goldberg and a production of Viewpoint Productions.
