Cast of Characters
Erin is on the lookout for issues to illuminate and
interesting guests around every corner. Her answer to
almost every problem is, "Where can we find an expert on
this topic? People should know more about this issue!"
Her goal is to provide factual information in an
entertaining way. Send her suggestions for guests and
ideas for shows if you have them.
Bill took over as co-host in December 2013. He was
always the trusty "coffee guy" and all-around Sunday
morning studio support for the original hosts. When
Elizabeth moved to Utah, he was the perfect person to
fill her shoes. Bill brings great insight and lots of
humor to the show, despite the fact that he swore he
would never sit behind the microphone. He's also in
charge of sponsorship and advertising. Maybe you or
someone you know would benefit from some great
advertising. We've got lots of options for advertisers
and our rates are great! You can send Bill a message at
Robert Exter is our behind-the-scenes guy making those
commercial free archives possible. He carefully edits
each show and creates the links we post for all of you
to enjoy. His hard work is key to all of the sound files
on the website the thousands of people use each and
every day of the week because they can download the MP3
file and listen when they've got the time. Robert is
also an exceptionally talented artist. Learn more about
The magic of We the People Radio was completed by Bob
Martin, our engineer. He left the radio station early in
2019 much to our dismay. We are doing our best to keep
his music tradition going with great bumper songs in and
out of the breaks. His mental musical library and
excellent timing gave us many a chuckle. Bob always
carried the show to the next level and was lauded by our
guests as the best engineer of any show they've done. He
put the "We" in our People for sure and the show isn't
the same without him. Coming up with just the right song
at the right time in the right format has proven to be
quite a juggling act while we're on the air. We sure
miss having him and no matter how hard we try he'll
never be replaced. Thanks for many years of excellent
engineering, Bob. We miss you!
Our Show Format
Most shows have way too much "host" and not enough
"guest" so we set out to carve a niche in conservative
talk radio that focuses on all the topics the mainstream
media only covers in sound bites. Our topics deserve
more time and certainly more scrutiny than they receive
in the wider media. We make every effort to give these
issues our full focus so that our listeners can get the
rest of every story from experts in their field rather
than talking heads full of ego and opinions.
We the People Radio finds great professionals in a wide
variety of fields from authors, speakers, professors,
scientists, activists, military experts, researchers and
amazing whistleblowers to name a few. Each week they
donate their valuable time to teach us about their issue
or area of expertise. Our goal is always to bring you
the most information we can pack into 2 hours with
supporting information on the webpage we create for each
program. That is followed up with commercial free
archives of every show. Please use those MP3 files to
listen in your free time, forward to a friend or
distribute as you see fit. We gather the information so
you can share it.
Our vantage point is conservative, but we are VERY
"liberal" with the humor.
Our Incredible Listeners
We are building an amazing audio library and would love
your suggestions for future topics! What have you always
wanted to know? Who have you seen interviewed for a
split second and thought "What the heck! They have so
much knowledge! I didn't learn a thing from that
interview because it was too short!". Those are great
opportunities to call / text / email We the People Radio
so we can get them on the show.
Thanks for listening.
Erin & Bill
In October of 2010 Carl Bott at KCNR 1460AM asked the
Redding Tea Party to start a program called "We the
People". Elizabeth Woodward and Erin Ryan took up the
challenge and began broadcasting every Sunday morning
from 8-9am and then from 8-10am. Check out the
archives for We the People "the early years".
In December 2013 our friend Elizabeth moved to Utah. She
and Dan are having a great time, but we certainly do
miss her and always think of her at daylight savings
time! Remember the morning that she forgot to set her
clock ahead and we did the first 1/2 hour without her?
She was always good for new ideas, great shows,
insightful comments and some good old fashioned physical
humor in the studio. Head bumping the microphone never
Our Bump in the Road
In October of 2014 the tea party decided to go a
different direction with programming and funding so We
the People Radio was suspended until new funding and a
new show time could be arranged. It was in that gap that
we learned just how many loyal listeners around the
country and around the globe are using the show to get
information and learn more about topics they find
important. It was humbling to receive the calls and
emails from people who wanted us to hurry up and start
broadcasting again. Thanks to all who encouraged us over
that hurdle and extra thanks to those who have stepped
up to help us finance the show!
Where we are now
We are privately funded and appreciate your support
sponsorship or advertising.
Our show has really been on the cutting edge of issues
with China and the plandemic. We began interviewing
Chinese dissidents back in 2018 after Erin met a woman
at a conference. Her story was so compelling that we
knew it was a topic that deserved extended air time.
Little did we know that some of our guests would be
major players in identifying the virus coming from a lab
in Wuhan. It was important to share with the public and
we were happy to bring out the details of that important
Cannabis has been another important topic for us. The
lies being told by the marijuana industry are stunning
and show no signs of stopping. It is vital that the
links between cannabis and mental health are exposed.
The public deserves to know that all forms of cannabis
cause cancer. It is vital to spread the word about the
legalization of cannabis giving rise to widespread
illegal grows run by deadly cartels in our rural areas.
The black market is exploding along with the degradation
of our lands, water and wildlife. NOTHING about cannabis
