Tonight's special guest is Linda Dueling from Omaha, Nebraska, a child abuse survivor and active NAASCA volunteer family member. Linda was sexually abused and eventually raped by her Grandpa. This went on until she was about 8 years old. Later, at 12, she would 'fall in love' with a 20 year old who introduced her to IV drugs. At 15 she ended up living on the streets with a boy and they were eventually arrested for 'breaking and entering' when they tried to find shelter. He was sent to Juvenile Hall, but Linda was released to her mother. "Mom slapped and hit me the whole walk home about 12 blocks." She ran away again and experienced a horrible gang rape by a group of 'friends'. Linda says. "I know GOD saved me that night." Linda began using drugs again and meet a boy who would become her husband. "He began hitting me within months," Linda says. "I was beaten daily." It took nearly 2 decades before she joined a church and got clean. For a while things got better. She earned a Certificate in Counseling for Addiction. She built businesses and was seen as a 'success'. "I had over come my addiction and my marriage was now 'healthy' by everyone's standards. Yet I felt dead." In 2008 she tried to take her life. "I was held at the hospital for almost a month. When I left I went into Intensive Outpatient Therapy 5 days a week, four hours a day." In 2010 she'd had enough. "I left for a business trip and never returned home." Her life has improved but she knows she still has a long way to go. She pushes on "Telling this side of my story with out protecting anyone in the process is a new journey."

SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "Child Abuse, Trauma and 12-Step Recovery" - STEP 4 (and we'll include a bit about TRADITION 4) - SCAN host Bill Murray will be joined by special guest co-host Rivka Edery, MSW, LCSW, author of the book "Trauma and Transformation: A 12-Step Guide." Bill founded the recently launched Adult Survivors of Child Abuse Anonymous (ASCAA). Together they will lead tonight's discussion on STEP 4: "Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves."Most survivors, unless they are in a crisis, do not put much thought into what happened; the people, places, things, and reactions to events that have long-shaped their life. But if you have not yet taken a look at what traumata shaped your personality, behaviors, fears, and ways of responding in life, Step Four is a good opportunity to stop and think about it. Perhaps you have reached the day when you realize that you are not living your life as you really want to. Perhaps you feel a deep inner longing for healthy, secure attachment, love and a more kind relationship with yourself. You may experience a longing for life as you were told it was supposed to be but you have no evidence that you are living such a life. ~~ A child abuse survivor herself, Rivka Edery has been active in the 12 Step community for nearly 20 years. Bill Murray credits his 30 plus years of recovery to the spiritual power of the 12 Step program, too. ~~ Join us every two weeks to further examine a 12 Step approach to recovery from abuse. Next show we'll address STEP 5 & TRADITION 5. ~~ Please see our web page at: www.NAASCA.org/Trauma-12Step or write to Rivka at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If your'e a huge fan of heart-stopping, tantalizing Romantic Suspense...you're in for a treat! Jerrie Alexander stops by to chat this Thursday, February 4th at 6pm EST!
A student of creative writing in her youth, Jerrie set aside her passion when life presented her with a John Wayne husband and a wonderful daughter. A career in logistics offered her the opportunity to travel to many beautiful locations in America, and she revisits them in her romantic suspense novels. Jerrie loves writing about alpha males and kick-ass women who weave their way through death and fear to emerge stronger because of, and on occasion in spite of, their love for each other. If they’re strong enough, they live happily ever after.
After a drunk driver killed Marcus Ricci’s wife while he was deployed in Afghanistan, he closed up emotionally. Working at Lost and Found, Inc., he lands a puzzling case with too many missing pieces. A killer is closing in on the woman Marcus is supposed to protect. Guarding the beautiful Chris is his job—and he’s one of the best—but keeping her close without letting her inside, makes it hard to protect his heart.
A murderer took the only family Chris Holland had left. When her sister's killer comes after Chris, she turns to the Lost and Found agency for help. As she and Marcus Ricci dig into her background, they’ll discover surprises that shake everything she believes to be true about her past.
Forced together day and night, passion ignites, and Chris falls for Marcus. He's a loner and not interested in a permanent relationship. When her case is over, he'll go back to his solitary life. Just a man and his dog.
Tonight on Spaced Out Radio, we get into a very interesting conversation about Big Foot with Florida Investigator Eric Mothman. Eric's personal experiences with the big hairy beast have him wondering if it's a breathing creature at all. What do we mean by that?
Many investigators of sasquatch tend to believe the creature is a relative of gigantopithicus or even the missing link of man kind. However, there's a more spiritual theory that big foot could be either interdimensional or a shape shifter. Many First Nations or American Indian tribes believe in the shape shifter aspect. Whereas most investigators of today tend to side with the scientific side of the creature.
Eric leans towards the indigenous theory after the experiences he's had at his cabin in the swamp. His cabin has had Big Foot sightings, and wild animals taken right off his porch. It's also been a hotbed for UFO activity as well, which we will get into in this show.

Tonight's special guest is Jacque LaFountaine from Spokane, Washington, a long-time personal friend of Bill Murray and a NAASCA volunteer. Jacque's a retired RN with experience, among other things, in critical care, ER, and as a director of assisted living and an Alzheimer's unit. Abused from early childhood, her memories were repressed. She didn't remember much of her home life when she left at 18, depressed and suicidal but not understanding why. Jacque says, "Eventually I lived in Los Angeles and began to get repressed memories back and started therapy. I was glad to get the memories out but always felt like I was sharing into a vast wasteland of nothingness." Her mother had abused her with physical, emotional, psychological, and sexual trauma which started in the crib. "Therapists considered it ritual child abuse and torture." More trauma occurred in Los Angeles. "In the middle of this, I was a victim of attempted murder which just made my PTSD symptoms even worse." She relocated to Santa Barbara and later Spokane, continuing treatment, dealing with major depression, severe PTSD, and serious dissociative disorder with Dissociative Identity Disorder (multiple personalities). "In 2011, things came together for me. My PTSD symptoms were eliminated in 24 hours. I found my core personality (the one that's not an alter) and reconstructed my identity. As my identity strengthened my depression left." Jacque says, "I'm in the best place internally that I've ever been and am truly grateful." She says she's looking forward to the future, concluding, "I believe we all have to help each other which will help bring child abuse out to the general public. There is strength in numbers."
It's that midweek time which means Sean, Steve and Katie are ready to spend another two hours with you and the wrestlers you may or may not know, but we guarantee you that you will be informed as well as entertained.
First off we will have joining us "Rockin'" Randy Rhodes. Randy is a Floridian who has been around the business for many years. He was an enhancement talent for 1980s WWF, where he worked a number of name stars, including a just starting Undertaker. His circle includes Bob "Blackjack Mulligan" Windham and Dirty Dick Slater and Joel Deaton among others. We are pleased to present Randy to our audience.
We have said our motto is "We Embrace Controversy" and in our second (and possibly third) hour we will most definately embrace controversy. Two different wrestling promotions in the Midwest are being called out, each for something different. In one promotion, a couple of fundraisers that one promotion ran are now rife with accusations that the money did not go to the causes it was intended for. Also, at a show in Minnesota, a manager chose the WRONG way to get heat on himself. We will discuss that as well.
Comments and questions, which will be screened for content, and allowed based on time will be taken via our chat, through Skype or via phone at (347) 826-9418. Due to the very real possibility of us going over we encourage our listeners to call or Skype early in the show to avoid missing show content after 12:00 Eastern.
The bestselling author of Under Cover of the Night recounts Laura Ackerson’s disappearance and murder in North Carolina, the discovery of her remains in Texas, and the aftermath…
On July 13, 2011, Laura Jean Ackerson of Kinston, North Carolina, went to pick up her two toddler sons. It would be the last time she was seen alive...
Two weeks later, detectives searching for the missing mother made a gruesome discovery on the shores of Oyster Creek near Richmond, Texas—the dismembered body parts of a young woman whom they were able to identify as Laura Ackerson.
Laura’s ex, Grant Hayes—the father of her two sons—and his wife, Amanda, the mother of his newborn daughter, both pointed the finger at each other as the one guilty of murdering Laura, cutting up her body, and then transporting and disposing of the remains.
This is the hauntingly true story of a devoted mother, a disturbed couple, and how these horrific events came to pass.. BITTER REMAINS-A Custody battle, A Gruesome Crime and the Mother Who Paid the Ultimate Price-Diane Fanning
Good afternoon, Kia here with another Hezekiah moment.Today we'll talk about briefly Major Alonzo Byrd Jr. His show is being aired live on Friday February 5, 2016 at 9 PM and you're not going to want to miss this show. I want to first thank my good friend Ms. Joi Ford for telling me about this amazing young man. She told me in the beginning of this new year that I should have him on the show, and me being one that listens, I called him up last weekend, and he was obedient to the call and said yes, and I'm truly excited to have him on this week.
Also, we'll have another treat as well, since our regular co-host Nichelle Johnson is still taking her well needed vacation, I've asked another good friend of ours to help out this week, and it's none other than Deacon Thomas Farr of "Issues" Christian Men Talk. So we are just going to have a great time in the Lord this Friday night.
A little about Major Alonzo Byrd. He was about 6 or 7, when he began to sell comic books. Next, he opened his candy business. Then, he sold magazines, school supplies, and fireworks. He was that “go-to-guy” for supplies, and that lasted until he was 15, and able to work. He shoveled snow, mowed lawns, and washed cars. He wished he'd never stopped, because of the freedom and ability to control his own destiny. He wished he learned the principles in his book 24 years ago! he wished someone taught him what he is missing today.
YUP, Young, Unique, And Paid! 10 Entrepreneurial Keys for Kids is his contribution to the younger generation, from being an entrepreneur since the age of six, he wants our young people to understand that, yes, I'm young, but guess what, I can get paid!
So join us on The Man In The Mirror Friday night at 9 PM As we welcome Major Byrd to the show.
