Kelly Carlin and Katie Klabusich join Dennis this week on Acronym TV.
Katie Klabusich relates her harrowing experience as a target of a "Wanted Poster" campaign from the Pro-Life Action League. "They decided for Lent this year to put together an Internet meme asking people to pray for (three people): me, (and also) an abortion doctor, and a pro-choice journalist. They put the three of us, with our names, cities, where we work, etc., (and published) it in the blog post and told people to 'pray' for us." This was a major concern because, as Katie says, "the anti-choice movement has used wanted posters to kill people. It has lead to assassinations."
About the Guests | Kelly Carlin hosts a weekly podcast entitled Waking from the American Dream and her recent one woman show, A Carlin Home Companion, sold out around the country while generating rave reviews. She holds a master's degree in Jungian Depth Psychology, but, according to her bio, her desire to be on a stage and yell the word "f*ck" kept gnawing at her, and so she decided to follow the call of the stage once again.
