Speaking Of Love Podcast

By La Toya Bond
I created this podcast in honor of my late father, Herman McKalpain, Jr. He was once a sports radio show host on WGPR in Detroit. His show was called “Speaking Of Sports” - which is the inspiration behind the name of my podcast “Speaking Of Love”

My dad committed suicide on March 2, 2020. My purpose and my mission is to spread love and raise awareness for suicide prevention in honor of my dad.
