Lives Radio Show & Podcast – Sharon Robino-West

Sharon Robino-West was featured in the Nebraska Public Media segment “The Warrior’s Pen” in 2015 discussing the importance of writing and the Veteran experience. In our conversation Sharon talks about issues of sexual assault in the military, PTSD, and the exploration of these and other life experiences through the medium of writing. We also talk about her memoir and much more besides.

Sharon has published work in “As You Were: Volume II, a publication of Military Experience and the Arts” and another of her works, “Into the Unknown,” was read in performance by Alfre Woodard at the 2016 Gala for the Writers Guild Initiative of America East in New York City. Her most recent work was published in “From Warriors to Warrior Writers” in 2020. Sharon will be wrapping up her memoir at the Key West Literary Seminar with the assistance of Bich Minh Nguyen in January 2022.

Born in sight of England’s Canterbury Cathedral, I’ve called the American Midwest home since 2004. Formerly a London lawyer and an Omaha brand consultant, since 2016 I have dedicated 100% of my time and efforts to Squishtalks, a conversation catalyst I started in 2010. Squishtalks has collaborated with numerous community groups and businesses.

Believing in conversation’s power to connect, in 2015 I undertook the community project “a couple of 830 mile long conversations,” adventuring in an RV for four weeks along side roads and among small towns to talk with Nebraskans, discovering the lives, cultures and stories of people I met. Currently I am engaged in “Stories from the Redline” in collaboration with The Union for Contemporary Art’s exhibition exploring the pernicious human impact of redline housing policies.

In addition, I cofounded the creativity agency Gilbert+Chittenden in 2017, collaborating with creativity expert Dan Gilbert using design thinking to help individuals and organizations creatively realize their best futures.

I hope you'll join me in listening to the compelling stories from my fascinating guests on Lives Radio Show & Podcast.
