Ten years ago we were introduced to Susan Smiley, her mother Millie and her sister Tina. Out of the Shadow was produced and directed by Susan. Premiering in 2005, it provided an unprecedented insight into her mother's serious mental illness, her own journey and how she and her sister have coped. The response to the film was enormous, receiving wide-spread press coverage. It continues to be required viewing in many university courses and graduate schools of public health, psychiatry, social work and nursing. It has received many awards, been translated into 12 languages and has been viewed countless times on PBS stations across the country. Tonight, we speak with Susan. She'll reflect on how the film impacted her life since she went public with her very personal and painful story. We will also discuss her current activities and interests.

Demetria’s forthcoming EP "Officially Yours," is scheduled for release later this year. The soulful ballad was written by McKinney, The Good Guys, and was also produced by The Good Guys.

dmitting that the crew was using PCP through the night, Rae remembered ODB amping everyone up with a pushup contest.
"That brother right there is just amazing within himself," Raekwon said of ODB. "One story we had was we all was—even when we was on the road we was still fucking around, smoking dust and all that shit. Some dudes still had habits that was just habits 'cause we was associated with that kind of crowd of niggas. Like I said, for every Wu-Tang member, he has his own entourage. That's why we was always so deep. You got nine brothers, you may know ten dudes and you may know eight and you know six, you may be with the normal three that you with, he come with 12. That's 60 niggas right there. So everybody had their audience of dudes they ran with. At that time we was around RZA's crew of dudes. These niggas was just hooded out, whatever whatever.
"One night we was all in the room smoking dust just, 'Boom, boom, boom,'" he continued. "Dust is like that embalming fluid. So we in there blowing. Why me, Dirty, RZA, a couple other brothers from the hood, I think we wound up doing like 900 pushups that day, apiece. We all was just getting on the floor getting it in. Some niggas was at like 1,200. We smoking dust, amped up, like, 'Yeah, yeah, c'mon!' I think Dirty did about like 1,100 that night. I did about 950. Mind you, I never did that many pushups in my life. I did so many pushups that Goddamn day that I wasn't even dusted no more. I wiped that shit right out my body...That was some shit. Dirty, he was an amazing individual. That's one of the memories I can remember 'cause he was the one that was definitely amping everybody up."
