William (Bill) Murray - founder / HOST
.
In late 2019, Bill launched this new effort at murrayTALK, which features independent-minded and apolitical PURPLE Media (to coin a phrase) .. podcasts on new platforms. A journalist, he writes, podcasts and telecasts about current news and events, features stories and opinion.

Of course, you're invited to participate !


Bill's experience and background is expansive, and he has over 3 and a half decades of recovery under his belt, healing from devastating childhood sexual assaults (CSA), drug addiction and alcoholism (as well as taking on life on life's terms).

Among other things he's the founder and CEO of:

(1) the non-profit NAASCA.org, an International effort that addresses issues of child abuse and trauma

(2) the grassroots LACP.org, a public safety effort that was originally his response to 9-11, 2001

These two websites alone have well over 10,000 pages of articles, information and resources. LACP is easily the world's largest grassroots effort of its type.

To date, he has produced over 3000 combined 90 minute podcasts for NAASCA and LACP, and now for murrayTALK.

In addition, Bill's prior professional career was in showbiz, where he was involved behind the scenes with many movies, sitcoms and documentaries .. and where he performed as an artist, musically, dramatically and as a comic.

In the course of over 35 years of activism, Bill has shared his experience, strength and hope, and has spoken to many thousands of other folks, many of whom were just starting on a healing journey of their own.
