Speaking Out On the Unspeakable

Updated: Apr 16

THE JOANNE MICHAELS SHOW: SPEAKING OUT ON THE UNSPEAKABLE aired on public access stations throughout the Hudson Valley (and into Manhattan on MNN-TV) for seven years, from 1999 through 2005. The show featured interviews with prominent citizens discussing controversial legal and political issues rarely covered by the local media. Joanne Michaels hosted and produced the show which was taped in Rhinebeck, New York at the Public Access of Northern Dutchess Area (PANDA) television studio.

The digitalization of this TV show was made possible by funds from The Bank of Greene County and in cooperation with Joanne Michaels and The Town of Esopus Library, Port Ewen, New York.
