We will talk about Aliens, random crazy stuff, The Pope, and futuristic stuff. For example, Lew is ALL about when the self driving cars become commericial. Also, what will the future be like when we are all ENHANCED with computer chips, etc. When will the CYBORGS arrive. How crazy powerful will AI be? Also, Lew will probably babble a bit about Civ IV, and Galactic Civilizations III (well at least that game is about Space).
Lew and Stiev discuss online dating, video games, their crazy vision of "twisted justice" during an imaginary time of lawlessness. Also, music and tech. Also, Lew will probably RANT about Facebook, online dating, and why he is sad that chat rooms suck soo bad.
Another hour with Stiev rambling about stuff. Check it out.
Lew welcomes new co-hosts Stiev n Seth in a lively debate on religion, Obamacare, and science.
Sharon Weil talks with Jacques Verduin about his transformational programs with incarcerated men in San Quentin Prison. Guiding Rage into Power (GRIP) provides the tools that enable prisoners to create change from the inside out and "turn the stigma of being a violent offender into a badge of being a non-violent Peacekeeper” They discuss some underlying causes of violence, and how mediation, community, and forgiveness practices can bring about a change of heart in a very tight space. Released inmates who have graduated from the program work with challenged youth and are models and teachers to their brothers and sisters who are still incarcerated.
Approximately 40% of homeless youth are LGBTQ. Nearly all homeless youth service providers in the U.S. now serve our youth but very few are exclusively by, for and about LGBTQ Youth.
Joining Ina, Teresa and Michelle on CAN WE TALK FOR REAL on Wednesday August 20, 2014 is Jerry Peterson, Executive Director of The Ruth Ellis Center in Highland Park, Michigan serving the metro-Detroit community. The Ruth Ellis Center is a youth social services agency that serves the needs of runaway, homeless and at-risk youth. Incorporated in 1999, it is one of the nation’s leading organizations focusing on vulnerable youth who are experiencing residential instability
Being homeless brings its own level of stigma to LGBTQ youth and the definition for homelessness defies traditional boundaries. Many youth say “I have a home. I just don’t want to go there”. Opting for alternative housing (couch surfing, etc.) and/or the streets over unstable households. Sex trafficking transactional sex, even suicide are day –to-day realities. What can we do?
Peterson will be talking about the “Family Acceptance Project” which focuses on the harmful effects of family rejection and the importance of engaging family members who are outed by their children and other options for our youth than the dangers/victimization on the streets.
America’s next generation of LGBTQ youth need us to stand with them so that they can stand on their own. How can you help? Tune in Wednesday, August 20, 2014 to CAN WE TALK FOR REAL and be a part of the solution.

With everything going on in the country today we thought that it would be a good idea to have an episode on Police and the community. The police are supposed to be there to make you feel safe, comfortable and protected. However, some members of our communities are scared, in danger and feel unprotected. Some people see the police as the good guys, some view them as the bad guys. We are going to have a great discussion on this today. We will touch on what makes people feel the way they do about the police and how we can improve relationships between community memebers and the police officers who serve them.
We'll talk a little bit about Michael Brown and the others that have been in police involved brutality, shootings or confrontations.
Of course the police will always have people that dislike them (the criminals) because they hinder their plans of breaking the law. However, the police shouldn't have a stigma of not being fair to certain people or have the community scared when they cross paths with an officer.

The battle between peaceful protestors in Ferguson Missouri and police/armed forces continues and in this edition of All Subjects Everything, we will discuss the stigma of looting/rioting vs. peaceful protest, the black on black crime myth and the disappointing takes on the situation by President Obama.
In certain communities, there is a negative stigma associated with seeking assistance for issues that trouble the mind or a mindset. We believe that these falsehoods are slowly being torn down. We will provide compelling arguments for why each of us could benefit from routine wise counsel.
My name is Lori Purdy Faitel and I am a Traumatic Brain Injury Survivor. And I am your host for THE SCIENCE OF HAPPINESS.I suffered a TBI many years ago, when I was 24 years old. As I speak to you I am 52 years old and very happy to share my age. Like many of us survivors of brain injury; I was clinically dead 3 times so…. it is proper to tell that I almost did not live to be 25, which makes being over 50 a blessing!
Back in the day, everything in my life was a dream come true. I was almost 25 years old, had a recent promotion in business which inspired me with dreams for my future, and I was attending college at night, I had recently moved out of my parents home for the first time, I had many friends and I was on the fast track to a future with the man I had been in love with for about 5 years. THEN on a beautiful sunny spring morning as I drove on the freeway to my job a construction truck dropped bales of hay onto my windshield causing me to lose control of my car, spinning off the road and into cement construction material. From that point forward my dreams were taken away. I was diagnosed with a TBI, in a mild coma for 7 days and it took about 6 years of therapy and extensive study before I was able to function like an adult again. I understand that the world is not filled with happiness; But for an hour or so lets concentrate on things that help to create happiness.
I am happy to have an interesting guest Wednesday night 8PM Eastern Time. Bethany is a TBI survivor who was undiagnosed for many months. After diagnosis and contact with other survivors she is on her way to a newer and happy life.

Tonight on Kickass Personal Transformation, we are focusing on destroying the stigma surrounding addiction, depression and suicide.
The stigma is not only dangerous, it can be fatal for those who suffer in silence. In the wake of Robin Williams’ death, many of us are discussing, disclosing, and processing our emotions: not only our grief for the loss of a brilliant talent, but also our desire to have a conversation about these too often taboo topics that should be openly discussed and treated.
Having an open discussion takes courage, and tonight’s guest has plenty of it.
