The show features in-depth conversations with visiting celebrities and newsmakers, local artists, experts, politicians, and community leaders.

The show’s host – Susan Sikora – is an EMMY Award winner and 8 time nominee. San Francisco Columnist Bill Mann dubbed her “best TV Schmoozer” in the Bay Area. Sikora hosted daily, live TV talk shows in several top 10 markets: New Jersey’s “In Your Corner” and “Consumer Line” (PBS), and Boston’s Morning, Live (CBS). A New Jersey native, she hosted nationally-syndicated programs at both NBC and ABC Network Radio. Sikora returned to the Bay Area to host KGO TV’s daily, live, talk show “Good Morning Bay Area.” She also hosted a call-in program for KGO Radio and was the consumer contributor on KPIX-TV’s original Evening Magazine. Susan Sikora resides in Marin County with her husband Skip, and their two “catkids” Oliver and Scarlett.
