Join us for our next episode of our Internet radio show this Tuesday where we chat with Dan Kroll, owner of the popular soap-oriented website, SoapCentral.com.  SoapCentral has been around for 15 years now, and it's one of the most popular destinations for fans of daytime drama.  They have news and features on all of the fan-favorite daytime stars as well as a busy messageboard where fans can dissect every plot twist and turn in detail.


We'll be talking to Dan to have him share his love of soaps as well as get his take on the state of the daytime industry as it stands right now.  Many pundits feel that it is only a matter of time before soaps die out entirely on American daytime television, but is it inevitable? 


We'll talk about all of that and much more with Dan, and we'll also take your questions.  Email them to us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
