Lisa Fritsch is a no-nonsense, common sense columnist and talk radio host based in Austin, Texas. She delivers smart and lively content in print and internet publications as well as on the radio as a guest host.

She has lived in Japan and Northern California, speaks Japanese and Spanish, and attributes her well-rounded, colorful personality to her wealth of social and professional experiences. Guiding principle: to connect with and positively impact the world around her.

Her writings on pop culture, life and politics have appeared in The Austin American-Statesman, The Dallas Morning News, The Weekly Challenger, The Baltimore Times, Today's Black Woman, Austin Monthly, and Urban Spectrum.
