This week as we look from the Ethan Saylor case to what the ACA really means to us, to what this all means for people with disabilities and those who love them, we have a lifetime expert from the "inside" to guide us in plain language and from the heart.
Barbara Kornblau's resume for health advocacy, especially for disability, spans 40 pages.
Attorney, Occupational Therapist, Dean, faculty, a Robert J Wood fellow, author of 3 books, 90 peer-review publications, over 300 presentations, service on HRSA, advisor to Congress and staff, a regular on television and radio including CNN and CNBC... Don't be alarmed, she is a fascinating person to sit and talk heart to heart to- trust me.
It is hard to decide if her passion, her knowledge or her proof of spending day after day, year after year to make a difference makes her as exceptional as she is. One thing we know, Barbara Kornblau will help us better understand, become more aware, and see the important issues we're tackling this week and always through our show and around the web.
In Januray of this year, Ethan Saylor- a boy with Down Syndrome- went to the movie theater, the police got involved when he tried to watch the show again, and he died. It was a homicide. But there were no charges brought against the police, there has been no independent investigation, the Sheriff and Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley won't speak to the press.
With no organization behind her, with no professional organizer, with nothing but love and determination, his young twenties sister would not let her brother's story die.
She created a petition on Change.org and got over 350,000 signatures asking for police training and an independent investigation. With her mother she took it to the Governor himself... who after nine months of silence at least has called for police training for people with disabilities.
What kind of rmarkable girl does it take to hold on and figut publicly- having no experience with the press, organizing or "handlers" to make this happen? No doubt someone remarkable! In her first ever in-depth interview, we'll be talking live. A fabulous way to end the week we've started for Ethan Saylor.
Around the tragic story of Ethan Saylor, another phenomena has happened. Fathers who may never have crossed with day jobs from such different fields have joined together under the flag of support for Ethan Saylor. Why? For all of their differences- they share a significant life experience: they are fathers of children with Down Syndrome.
In our week of covering the crowd-sourced phenomenon that has begun to bring some good out of a needless death, the voices of these fathers are one of them.
David Perry, associate professor of history, who wrote about the story for CNN Opinion and The Nation will be one of our fathers. Blogging anonymously at LittleBirdsDad.com an Army veteran, entrepreneur, and step-father of three also joins us during this sure to be moving episode.

If all fathers are special, and all children are special- surely the fathers of extra-special children have something extra-special within to share with us. Join us for the week, and don't miss this episode. We'll be taking live callers- so fathers from everywhere can feel free to call in too!
Matthew Grant returns to the air on the Elite Podcast Network with a special post-Global Wars edition of #WRESTLECHAT! On this episode, Matthew is joined by David Kirkwood, Jake Richard & Jon Turnip to discuss both the Global Wars & War of the Worlds events. Also on the show, we get some prerecorded words from "All Ego" Ethan Page discussing Alpha-1, AIW, AAW, PWG, WWNLive & so much more!
An absolutely amazing episode with Emmy Nominated Debra Alfarone who is lead nightly reporter for WUSA9 in Washington DC.
At 9/11/2011 she was working at the World Trade Center. Amidst the chaos of the events, she realized that as great as her life and job was, that she needed to pursue her passion to become a television journalist to tell the stories that others were not telling, to give voice to those who had none.
With absolute tenacity and courage, she left her job and took every entry level "dues paying" job in the business of news that she could find. She worked her way up to an NBC affiliate, then into New York City, and is now with a major network program in Washington DC.
There she learned the story of Ethan Saylor, a boy with Down Syndrome who went to the movie theater and never came home alive. While virtually no-one has been covering it, she has held on for 9 months covering this story until someone- from the sheriff's office to Governor Martin O'Malley will give her some answers.
Moving, funny, inspirational... this is an episode you should download and listen to again and again. And you'll learn- this will not be the last you'll hear of me and Debra Alfarone!
