200 – Mistress Carrie – Cocktails in the War Room

200 – Mistress Carrie – Cocktails in the War Room

“Don’t lick anything Weird and Wash your Damn Hands!” that is what the shirt says, but it means so much more.

Mistress Carrie was on #62 and #100 for Oscar Mike Radio. Mistress Carrie had worked at 107.3 WAAF in Boston for almost 30 years when the station was sold in early 2020. Combine that with COVID-19 and she realized she needed to adjust to a new reality fast.

Mistress started doing cellphone livestreams over Facebook Live called “Cocktails in the War Room” in March of 2020. It caught on and before you know it people like me who had listened to Mistress Carrie on the radio were tuning in to get connected. There were jokes, serious talk, Wednesday the Goth Pug doing her thing, and Mail Call. Before I knew it, it was the place to be during a time when there was no place to go.

Then one day Mistress had this idea. What if she had T-Shirts made and the sales of those T-Shirts went to help a Veterans Cause? The images below were made into T-Shirts. Mistress thought that she would sell maybe 300…… She sold almost 1000! The money went to the Massachusetts Military Support Foundation Food 4 Vets Program. This program provides food for Veterans in need. It was a great moment that showed how good can come out of anything.

That wasn’t all Mistress Carrie was doing from March when Cocktails in the War Room started till now. She has been working on putting together a company and get her podcast off the ground. You can catch her podcast on https://mistresscarriepodcast.simplecast.com/.

We spent time talking about the transition from WAAF DJ and Radio Personality to having to re-invent herself in today’s world where nothing is stable right now. In many ways her journey is like many of us transitioning out of the military. You have to make a plan, coordinate resources and network with other people who can help you achieve your goal. It doesn’t happen by itself.

As of this writing, her 7th podcast will have dropped. Even now Mistress Carrie’s podcast has been heard in almost every country on the planet. The Mistress is truly in flight.

It was an honor to have Mistress Carrie on for #200. I learn something each time and take a minute to think about how far I have come. I can’t wait to see what is next for her and hope to see you during Cocktails in the War Room! Thank you again Mistress.

Episode 62 – Mistress Carrie – Veterans Advocate & WAAF Radio DJ

Episode 62 – Mistress Carrie – Veterans Advocate & WAAF Radio DJ

The hurt was going strong with this picture!

I started listening to WAAF and Mistress Carrie when I moved to Boston in 1999. I don’t know a lot of female radio personalities and I always liked her unapologetic, high energy style on the radio. I follow her on facebook and this whole episode started with the picture on the left that came from her Facebook Page. This is a picture of Senator Elizabeth Warren and Mistress Carrie. She captioned that she got to meet Senator Warren and talked about Veterans with her. I then began to read comments and ohhh boy…..

Wow, the amount of hurt feelings was amazing. People threw names, f-Bombs and all kinds of other statements that Mistress Carrie is a TRAITOR.

Mistress Carrie is more than capable of taking care of herself. However, I wanted to have her on to talk about what she is doing for Veterans and how she got started, and the situation with her and Senator Warren.

We started talking about music and her background in radio and then moved into how she got into Veterans Advocacy. As the conversation progressed, I just let her talk because some of her experiences here and in overseas came across as intense personal times in her life. Going overseas and being embedded in these units had an effect on her that made her even more committed to helping our Military and Veterans.

She is always looking for all kinds of ways to advocate for Veterans. Now she serves on the Board of Directors for 22Kill Boston, and you can find her at several Veterans events in the Greater Boston area.

People ask me all the time if they can make a difference, and Mistress Carrie shows all us that we can. No matter if we have or have not served, or what we do in our daily lives, we can effect change wherever we are.

We closed it out talking about living and working in Boston. She summed it up perfectly when it came to Boston sports, “You hate us because you ain’t us!”

I look forward to talking with you again. PDAWG sends
