We Love Soaps continues to expand. First, Michael Goldberg and I would like to welcome Damon L. Jacobs to the team. The three of us are all lifelong soap fans who really love the genre and Damon will fit right in with what we are trying to do here. Second, we are launching a podcast, "We Love Soaps Radio," on July 7th at 10am ET so stay tuned for more details on that. Lastly, you'll be seeing some additional video coverage of various events as well as video interviews in the coming weeks and months.
Some people have asked about our new logo and it actually has a couple of meanings. We wanted an image that reflected the three contributors to the site, as well as the fans who love soaps as much as we do.
For those who aren't familiar with Damon, he is Licensed Marriage Family Therapist who has a very unique way of approaching people and situations. He is also author of "Absolutely Should-less: The Secret to Living the Stress-Free Life You Deserve," which is a must read, with another book in the works. Like Goldberg and myself, Damon was practically born watching soaps and his knowledge of the genre is quite impressive. Combine all these things and you get a unique perspective on the genre you really can't find anywhere else.
Prior to joining We Love Soaps, he wrote numerous columns over the past year as the "Soap Shrink." Also, his interviews at MarlenaDeLacroix.com have been as insightful and interesting as any in the soap world. In recent months he has published interviews with Van Hansis, James DePaiva, Melissa Claire Egan, Elizabeth Hendrickson and many more. His first interview for We Love Soaps will be fascinating and you can hear part of it on the July 7 podcast.
Please help us welcome Damon to We Love Soaps.
