About the Show

Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?

There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.

Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting. But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!

If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you! It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!

About the Host – Joe Messina

Joe Messina is a speaker, author and Radio talk show host. He began his radio career after being asked to fill in for a show host who cancelled short notice. Joe grabbed a Democrat and Republican and, being the “agitator” he can be, stirred it up!

After that, he was asked to do a one hour weekly show that quickly turned into a two hour show, then three hour show.

Now Joe can be heard daily across the airwaves and over the internet on several stations.
He has loyal listeners in 42 states and 38 countries, and the list keeps growing!

Joe is a no-nonsense, conservative realist. He is not interested in “what if?” or “we could have!”

He is interested in hearing both sides and has no problem taking on taboo issues with real questions looking for real answers. Race, religion, racism, and politics are all open season for topics on the show.

Joe has had several successful businesses and has held several executive positions with Fortune 1000 companies. He has been asked to teach business ethics classes for several organizations over the last 8 years.

Joe has been actively engaged in community, church and very involved in politics for well over a decade and has enjoyed a reputation of being a man of integrity and ethics.

Joe’s goal for the show… Make sure that anyone listening can understand the conversation and walk away with new and useful information using clear simple English. No political speak. No double talk. Just REAL facts… REAL words… REAL conversation.
