    Tell a Different Story

    in Family

    We all have explanations about why our lives are the way they are.  If our lives are good, we tell good stories.  If we struggle, we tend to tell stories that explain why life is the way it is, but what if those stories are the very thing keeping us stuck?  Today we're talking about telling a different story by looking at your life differently.  The facts don't change, but the way you lookat it can, and that can make all the difference.  What if we could change our lives merely by changing our stories?  Maybe we can.  Join us to find out.

    Media bias or how to tell if your pants are on fire

    in Current Events

    Colorado shooting, Syrian refugees, BLM, Shootings in Chi town.


    Your view of any of these topics is probably based on where you get your news from.


    Lets try and add some clairty to the bullshit that is the MSM.

    Media bias is the bias or perceived bias of journalists and news producers within the mass media in the selection of events and stories that are reported and how they are covered.


    "This is not normal. We can’t let it become normal." —@POTUS on the shooting in Colorado

    Giving Voice to Your Courage with LeeAndra Chergey

    in Family

    Dorit Sasson, creator of Giving Voice to Your Story, interviews LeeAndra Chergey, author of Make a Wish for Me: A Family's Recovery from Autism.

    When LeeAndra Chergey is told that her son, Ryan, is no longer considered “normal,” she and her family are forced into a new way of handling the outside world. Together, Chergey’s family and a team of carefully chosen therapists put in years of hard work, and eventually teach Ryan to speak and express emotions. Through it all, Chergey follows her heart—and in the process, she learns that being “normal” is not nearly as important as providing your child with a life full of joy, love, and acceptance.Tender and candid, Make A Wish For Me is a story of accepting and tackling a disability stigmatized and misunderstood by society.

    We'll talk about the courage it took her to deal with a system that did not support her family and autistic son and the courage it took for her to recover and live life fully. This is a podcast you definitely want to tune into!

    Giving Voice to Your Courage with Eileen Flanagan

    in Writing

    Talk about courage! Dorit Sasson, of Giving Voice to Your Story, will interview Eileen Flanagan of the memoir Renewable: One Woman’s Search for Simplicity, Faithfulness, and Hope is the story of a spiritual writer and mother of two who, while trying to change the world, unexpectedly finds the courage to change her life. With wit and wisdom, Eileen Flanagan shares the engaging journey that brings her from midlife spiritual crisis to fulfillment and hope—and, briefly, to jail. 


    Specifically, we'll talk about the journey that led Eileen to become a leader of a group that uses civil disobedience and similar tactics to fight climate change. The book starts with my first act of civil disobedience, when I handcuffed my wrist to the White House fence along with 47 other people (including Daryl Hannah).
