Barbi Twins


The Barbi twinsShane Barbi and Sia Barbi, were famous celebrity pin-up-cover girls of the 90's, that had record breaking calendars, two sold out Playboys and popular branding and merchandise around the world, including their images on Russian stamps. They are now renowned animal activist correspondents and media spokeswomen

The Barbi Twins are the Animal Editors of the #1 green magazine, "Origin Magazine" (Issue15) and they interview numerous iconic celebrities, like their animal pals Bo Derek and Willie Nelson.

The twins are also health authors of two best selling books. Their latest book, "The Eco Anti Diet Book", teaches people how to incorporate a raw vegan plant diet into everyone's regime and lifestyle.

Lately, the Barbi Twins are also lauded for their famous pet detective work in helping catch the infamous, alleged kitten killer turned cannibal murderer

The twins were producers of a documentary and of the critically acclaimed film, "Your Mommy Kills Animals", and were featured in many other animal documentaries, including "Saving America's Horses", "Skin Trade" and TV shows, such as Morgan Spurlock's FX "30 Days-Animal Activism".

The Barbi Twins claim that they were the first at being "famous for nothing" and put their 7.5 minutes of infamy each toward animal rights. Famous for Something, Indeed: The Barbi Twins Take Tangible Action for Animal Rights

They grew up in a show-biz family and were featured in their own "Barbi Twins: E! True Hollywood Story". The twins were also featured in a "48 Hours" special about their first book, "Dying to Be Healthy", focusing on their struggles with eating disorders.

What the twins want to bring to the radio show is their bipartisan view on conservation and animal rights. They coined themselves "Green Tea Baggers", claiming the animals are the real 99%-ers, the true victims.

Jani Schulz


Jani Jana Schulz has been involved in wildlife and environmental causes her entire life dating back to her childhood while growing up on a ranch in Central Texas.   Following her career path as a radio/television/film major, Schulz worked as a television announcer, then moved to radio as an on-air  personality in markets from Seattle, Washington to Austin, Texas.

After a 10+ year career in radio, Schulz took a job with the Cox Communication owned, Austin-American Statesman Newspaper. As time passed,  Schulz needed out “of the box”,  and left Cox to publish a National magazine titled Exotic News, devoted to areas of conservation via private ownership. Schulz’s Exotic News quickly launched itself onto the International scene with worldwide distribution  including an edition published and printed in Adelaide, Australia.

During her years with Exotic News, Schulz traveled the world from Africa to Asia to South America and beyond, speaking, writing and publishing articles on conservation . On one of these trips, Schulz found herself in the magical land of Costa Rica where she immediately fell in love with the natural beauty of the rainforest and the Costa Rican people.  In 1996,  Jani and her husband, Jurgen,  purchased their first rainforest property on the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica, which National Geographic describes as the most biologically diverse place on the entire planet.

The rest is history. In 2009, Schulz purchased a National Radio station in Costa Rica, changed the format to talk, and named the station Rainforest Radio, where she continues her life-long quest to bring attention to a more sustainable world.
