Radio Interview With Honolulu's ESPN Radio 1420 AM for "Thrive Live"

Energy drinks. Hidden sugars. Picnic baskets. The benefits of kicking or cutting back on sugar.
Those are just some of the many subjects I chatted about when Phil Roberts, the producer for "Thrive Live," a health, fitness and public affairs program on ESPN 1420 in Honolulu interviewed me for the cutting-edge show that's sponsored by Kaiser Pernamente. (The show is normally hosted by Don Robbs.)
I have to admit: I sure would have loved to have been there, in glorious Hawaii, in person to do the interview!
It was wild to do an interview with such a massive time difference. You see, itwas 6:30 p.m. here on the East Coast and only 12:30 p.m. back in Honolulu.
FYI,Thrive Live -- which airs from 12 noon to 1 p.m. from the Fort Street Open Air Market and is broadcasted from Kaiser Permanente's Pensacola location in Honolulu.
Its goals are to encourage people to "eat and live healthy by learning about proper nutrition, diet, exercise and health care with the advice of Kaiser Permanente physicians."
It was gratifying to learn that people phoned the station during my interview to ask questions -- this despite the fact that ESPN doesn't take calls for the Thrive Live show!
