Have Their Say
SANDI KLEIN HAS NOTHING against
men. The Teaneck resident and former
1010 WINS newscaster has two sons and
was married for 43 years (her husband,
Judge Jerald Klein, died in March). But
when she decided to switch careers in
2013 after 20 years at WINS, her thought
was: “Men are great. I love them. But
enough already, you know? Women have
a lot to say.”
Thus was born “Conversations
With Creative Women,” Klein’s weekly
podcast featuring 30-minute interviews
with women she finds fascinating.
In more than 120 episodes, guests
have included Friday Jones, the body
artist who gave Billy Bob Thornton his
first Angelina tattoo; Emily Mann, the
Tony-winning artistic director of McCarter Theater in Princeton; and Ann
Jacobs, director of the Prisioner Reentry
Insititute. Episodes are free to download
from i Tunes, PRX and sandikleinshow.
com. Radio station WFDU airs new
episodes at 8: 30 AM on Sundays.
“Here’s the point of this show,” Klein
says. “I’ve got nothing against Be-yoncé and Martha Stewart and Jennifer
Aniston. But you’re not going to learn
anything new from them, because they
have a persona that’s not going to crack.”
Instead, the women on the podcast are
social activists and scholars—anyone
“who is accomplished and fascinating
but doesn’t have an image to protect.
They’re the dynamite, passionate
women who have real things to share.
“This,” she says, “is the stuff that
should be falling off my lips.” ;
