    Dr. Gruder is one of the most reasonable, level-headed guests we’ve ever had on our show. He gives great interviews… whether about the economy, health care reform, political polarization, or any integrity-related story.

I can’t recommend it enough!” Suzanna Axisa, host of Lanto’s Lantern for the discerning self-helper (new age spirituality show)

Thank you for being such a wonderful guest.” The Midnight Bookworm, Vin Smith, nationally syndicated through the CRN Digital Radio and the National Radio Network (book show)
