Thank you for your constant support and please invite me back sometime soon."

"Doug Basham is one of our favorite shows. He is compelling, provocative and a true progressive with guts. We love how he begins his show each night with an update on the War and days left in this "miserable presidency." We love listening to his show because he is prepared and conducts great interviews. You can tell he takes time to read each book before he interviews an author. Sacramento LUVS Doug -- the BASHAM guy!"

Paula Nelson-Redfield, General Manager, KSAC AM 1240, Sacramento, CA.

"Doug, you are a rare radio interviewer. Highly literate, thoughtful and challenging. You asked probing questions no-one else does. After being on dozens of other shows, I consider yours "The Harvard of the Air Waves". I'd be delighted to answer you "properly irreverant" questions again anytime."

Donna Rosenthal , author of "The Israelis: Ordinary People in an Extraordinary Land"

Rohan Gunuratna , author of "Inside al-Qaeda: Global Network of Terror"

David Vise, Author of "The Bureau and the Mole: The Unmasking of Robert Philip Hanssen"

Dr. Ergun Caner, Author of "Unveling Islam"

Candice DeLong , author of "Special Agent: My Life on the Front Lines as a Woman in the FBI"

"Doug, you NEED your own syndicated, nationwide talk show, because your Spirit is so grounded in it's quest for truth and peace unto others. I am honored to know you, and must somehow bring together the FEW interviewers/hosts whose lives are also aligned with similar motivations of the Spirit. Thank you for being one among the FEARLESS TEAM... we are few, but growing!"

John Cord , author of "Big Ol' Christian Lies" and "Revelation Earth"

"Doug, I have only positive things to say about our interview last night. You are one of the few interviewers who actually read the book and asked me just the right questions so that the listeners could get a good feel of what Commonsense Rebellion and I'm all about. I had lots of fun, and I'd love to meet you in person some day and chat. Thanks also for the positive reports of audience reaction--as you noted in the interview, I'm not exactly making friends among lots of my colleagues, so it's nice to know that the general public "gets it."

Dr. Bruce Levine, author of "Commonsense Rebellion: Condemning Psychiatry, Confronting Society"

"Thanks so much for having Genevieve and me on your show tonight. You did a great job with the material, and made it all fun and free-flowing.

Dennis Fried , author of "Memoirs of a Papillon"

"Of all the interviews we've done since the book came out, this one's the best."
