Before Oprah brought Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz to your home via TV, there was Dr. Ruth Westheimer giving advice on the radio. But she wasn’t talking about diets or social behavior.
Dr. Ruth’s groundbreaking show started as a 15 minute pre-recorded program, but gained an audience. While it was considered risqué at the time, the show went live, and catapulted her into celebrity. In the meanwhile, Westheimer’s expertise as a psychosexual therapist has expanded to books, computer software, games, home video, newspapers, television, and her own website.
Whether or not you’re a fan of 50 Shades of Grey, you should check out Dr. Ruth on Wednesday, April 17th, when she’ll be speaking about her life, career, and I’m sure sex, all in a way to inspire us thanks to SmartTalk. The performance at the State Theatre begins at 7:30 PM, and tickets are still available, so pay her a visit and hear what the good doctor has to say.
