When I heard this weekend that Regis Philbin passed away, I knew that we had to push back our regularly scheduled episode and put this one up instead. We are bringing you the audio from a segment Regis did, focused entirely on anxiety and agoraphobia.
At the time, CHAANGE was helping so many people recover from anxiety and panic attacks that Regis Philbin brought Faison Covington (who you know from this show!) and Ann Seagrave, two of the founders of CHAANGE, on to tell their stories to his audience.
It's a great interview and lead to the CHAANGE phone lines blowing up almost immediately. That's the Regis effect!
For those new to the the show, CHAANGE is the program Dr. Barr and I used to overcome anxiety and are relaunching online (for the first time!) in a few days.
Regis really was someone special... I watched him growing up and heard stories from my mom about how kind he was to her.
Much later, when I became a radio host in Los Angeles, I came to appreciate just how amazing he was at his job! Interviewing people is an art. And it's one he mastered like no other.
I hope you enjoy this episode. It's sad to think that we will never get another event live-hosted by Regis, but we're lucky for the decades and decades we DID have him!
