We all have stories to tell about ourselves. When we go through the process of self-acceptance, we learn to love ourselves completely – to love both the good things and the not so good things. Host Kita Szpak will interview Michael Lifshitz who is a great example of a person, who by having accepted his life and its circumstances totally, has learned to love himself. The good news is we can all change our story from one of misfortune and sadness to happiness and self-fulfillment – to be the hero instead of the victim.
Born and raised in Montreal, now calling Ottawa home, Motivational Speaker and Comedian Michael Lifshitz knows all about overcoming challenges. Born with a condition called Multiple Congenital Musculoskeletal Abnormalities, Michael has never let his disability stand in the way of accomplishing his goals. He became a Chartered Public Accountant and obtained his MBA from Edinburgh Business School. Michael has built and sold successful accounting and financial planning practices, as well as spoken at various events across Canada, including a TedX conference. Michael’s first book, Mission Unstoppable, a collaboration with Les Brown, Dr. George Fraser and 35 other inspiring leaders which will be out this fall. It has already reached Best Seller status on Amazon in multiple categories. Michael is also planning to release a book for parents of children with disabilities called Sure I Can – Living and Succeeding with a Disability, a compilation of articles Michael wrote for Exceptional Family Magazine. Through his speaking, comedy and writing, Michael shares his experiences of overcoming the challenges posed by his disability to inspire others to overcome their own challenges, because as Michael says: "We all face challenges in life, mine just get me better parking spots!! "
Talking all things faith, including faith-based current events (and sometimes even that dreaded political overlap, YIKES!)
Brad Dacus from Pacific Justice institute joins us to discuss you and your child’s rights as people with religious beliefs don’t miss this
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
Tonight’s guest is Dustin Fisher, who has written a book called Daddy Issues. The book is a funny, anecdotal account of the first year of Dustin's life with his new born daughter, Mabel. It's not necessarily about how to raise a child as much as it is about how a young, first-time father manages himself amidst all the pitfalls and road bumps anyone might face when trying to learn how to be a parent. Dustin is an author, a stand-up comedian, a story-teller, and runs his own blog that is all about being a stay-at-home father. His work has been published in the likes of the Huffington Post, the Good Men Project, and Baltimore Style magazine. According to Dustin, the minute his wife told him she was pregnant he made the scary decision to quit his job. So, in addition to the above mentioned past-times, Dustin is first and foremost the father of a healthy 2 year old daughter. Visit Dustin’s blog at http://daddyneedsanap.com/, where you can read his weekly updates and find links to all his upcoming events.

An exploration of what it means to be a kid; both the best and worst parts and what happens to that world when you inevitably have to grow up.

Reading from the Pride South Florida program:
The Pride Festival commemorates the Stonewall riots that occured in New York City in June 1969 which many credit with having launched the national movement for LGBT rights.
Recently released U.S. Census data revealed that Fort Lauderdale is the city with the highest concentration of same-sex couples households in the nation; and the greater Fort Lauderdale area annually welcomes more than 1.3 million LGBT visitors.
Our First guest Norm Kent, Publisher of South Florida Gay News (SFGN) was a successful attorney and advocate for many years defending gay men who were falsely accused of breaking Florida 's lewd and lascivious laws.

Emily Lovejoy is a West Coast artist, where currently she spends her time working on the publication of a children’s book. Her book is To the Moon, and it’s the story of the adventures of Lilith, a young girl, and her best friend Hopsi, a rabbit. The two set out to find the moon, and throughout their journey they cross paths with some colorful characters.
