We spoke to Romola Hodas about her book The Princess of 42nd Street: Surviving My Childhood With The Times Square King Of Porn. A lot of her dads life is being portrayed in the HBO series The Deuce..
What a story. The book is so compelling. I read it in one sitting. Romola is very honest about her life with her dad Marty Hodas, Times Squares King Of Porn. She also survived having a mentally ill mother. As the oldest she became the protector of her sisters and brother. She takes us on a journey that makes you feel you are living it with her. She talks the swingers parties her folks would have while the kids were home. Meeting the women behind the peep booths and so much more. She is so honest. Very good listen.

WE TALK TO PROGRESSIVE MINISTER REV. LYDIA SOHN AND WE DISCUSS HER ARTICLE ON WHAT ITS LIKE TO BE 90 SOMETHING…YES, PASSION AND DESIRE STILL EXISTS!!
Reverend Lydia Sohn joins us on The Broads Way Show and we discuss her article What It's Like To Be Ninty Something..She was a pastor at a church with a mostly aging congregation. Lydia was not sure she could help them or reach out to them on common ground. One day Lydia was couseling an 80 something women when she asked Rev Lydia what to do, she was in love with a married man. She was surprised but it led her to ask her older parishoners what they most regret, what they fear most, and still longing for romantic love. Its all very interesting and totally relatable. I knew of a woman that found the love of her life at an assisted living place. She was 87 years old. They were together until my dear friend "Pop" (her true love) died 4 yeats later at the age of 91.
This is a really good listen, you just might be surprised at some of their answers.
We want to thank Rev. Lydia for coming on the show. She was warm and very easy to talk to.
Most of all we want to thank our listeners. Keep on listening. We have some great shows coming up.

Donnie and Grace is not a political show. We of course care deeply about whats going on in our country but keep our beliefs to ourselves during our show. Sean got into politics. We let her talk and that was that. Those were Seans opinions and not ours..We just aim to get great guests and to entertain. Arguing over politics was not what we were going to do.
