44:17 Question of the Week

"What is the future of GenderTalk? You are broadcast on the airwaves locally, streamed on the Internet and podcast. Is syndication of your program possible so you can be heard on public radio stations around the country like CarTalk? Any thoughts of expanding your broadcast to Satellite radio? Is a TV talk show in your future?"
(From: Alana)
