Stand Up! with Pete Dominick


Stand Up is a full length show similar to what we did on SIRIUSXM. We will talk about issues that matter to you, your health, the health of your family, community, country and planet. And we will laugh while we do it. I plan to try up load at least 3 shows a week. Mon, Weds and Friday and then move as fast as I can to be daily.
