”I’d be sitting in my office and Robin Williams. In the softest voice, would just be helping me through it all. He would help me out of my darkest moments.”
”My radio show Citizen Radio had a moment where we almost had to stop because we were getting kicked out of our space.
”Robin heard about it through our mutual friends and called me, just saying, ‘What do you need?’ He made up the difference in my salary while we were struggling. Our inside joke was that we didn’t have sponsors but we were brought by ‘Robin Williams.’ ”
