Praise for Denise Gossett
"My first guest on the radio show and one of the most memorable and delightful women on the planet. Ms. Gossett was amazing! Besides being incredibly talented and informative, Ms. Gossett is just so cool and charming! The conversation we had on The Horror Happens Radio Show was a must listen for anyone who is in the business of film and who loves to hear a woman who is smart and interesting." -- JK from The Horror Happens Radio Show on HGRNJ.org
