DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

Dennis heads to Anaheim to chat with radio host Romaine Patterson about her recently launched radio show with Derek Hartley, Derek & Romaine 2.0. She talks about her first meeting with Derek, the pain of being let go from Sirius/XM, the hard work of launching DNR 2.0 and meeting her wife Iris through the show. She also talks about her terrific book "The Whole World Was Watching...Living in the Light of Matthew Shepard," her relationship with her brother Michael who dies of AIDS, all the media she did in the wake of Matthew's murder, coming up with Angel Action idea to distract from Fred Phelps' protests, being photographed in her angel outfit by David LaChapelle and the challenge of moving on. Other topics include: Barbie torture, being on the speech team in high school, working for GLAAD, punking a homophobe on MTV and the unforgettable 19th birthday party thrown for her by her friend Matthew Shepard.
