"Taxi Talk," hosted by cabby Michael Higgins, is a talk show aimed at both drivers and passengers of NYC's taxis. Like Higgins' newspaper and radio program of the same name, the show tackles issues both technical (fares, hearings) and social (sexism, company rivalries), shedding light on what happens between points A and B.
Women’s History Month is often discussed with references to past movements (voting rights in the early 1900s; bra burning in the 1960s) and big names (Sandra Day O’Connor; Amelia Earhart). But at MNN, “power to the people”—including to women—and the positive change that comes with that mission is happening every single day. March is coming to a close, so we reached out to MNN producers to find out how their shows honor women during Women’s History Month and all year round. Here’s a snapshot—leave us a comment about how your show nods to women’s history, too!

"Ms. Divine's Tee Hee Heure" is an outrageous romp through the mind of Ms. Divine , a master of identity fraud. The show features her "loony characters," as she calls them--unfortunate souls like Mr. WeirdMan, Ms. Shito Bito and Anastasia--in their "peculiar world." Ms. Divine loves to update viewers on news items, so stay tuned for that!
