SORT BY Relevancy
Yes, today's guest has the same last name as Karla Byrd, John's cohost, and that is because Oliver Byrd is Karla's husband. On today's show, John and Karla begin interviewing the 2015 class of Urban Heroes and they will start with Oliver. Oliver worked at Mellon Bank for many years, but also served the community as the chair of the United Way and the chairman of the August Wilson Center for African American Culture in downtown Pittsburgh. Oliver will talk about growing up in Pittsburgh and what motivated him to serve so selflessly throughout his career.
John and Karla met Deloris in 2014 while they were conducting a workshop for the residents of Hazelwood, a community in renewal in the City of Pittsburgh. They were so impressed with her story, which included surviving a bout with cancer, and leadership that they both nominated her to be part of the 2015 Urban Heroes class. Today Deloris joins Karla and John to tell listeners her story.
The Center for Urban Biblical Ministry has been educating adults in the Pittsburgh area in partnership with Geneva College since 1988. Since 1998, Karla Byrd has been the CUBM director, guiding the program through rough waters to calm seas. She has also been instrumental in founding the Pittsburgh Urban Heroes Program, and was recognized as an urban hero herself. Today John Stanko, the show's co-host, interviews Karla to talk about life, CUBM, what it takes to be an urban hero and the state of CUBM and adult education in general in the 21st century.

Urban Grandstand Relaunches
Cleveland, OH, October 09, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Following a near two year hiatus, Cleveland-based online magazine Urban Grandstand has re-launched.
Operated most times throughout the past decade as a one-man show, the site shut down indefinitely in 2010 for various reasons. The company’s publisher, James Johnson, speaks candidly about the short hiatus....
"Urban Grandstand has been my baby; so to speak, for more than a decade. It actually began as Urban Connectionz in 2002, and there have been so many successful moments throughout that time. First and foremost, as someone with no Journalism experience in the beginning; yet having a strong desire to gain that experience, it was a way for me to have my own vehicle, and get to that next level. When people were constantly telling me no, it was a way for me to bypass those people and get what I wanted. I've had the tremendous blessing of interviewing hundreds of artists, musicians, television, and film stars over the years. During those years, I took things a step further by pursuing my education. In retrospect, shutting down for a short period was the best thing I could have done, because it allowed me to focus on my educational goals, and I've been able to earn multiple degrees in Journalism. I can now use this vehicle to truly take the Journalism world by storm, and show another side than what people have been used to seeing out there."

Make up sex. What exactly is it? What's it to you?
Is it a good thing? A bad thing? Something that all couples do? Something that has become more popular in the media in recent years? Is it safe? Is it dangerous? Is it something that makes up for an argument? Does it end with just an argument or disagreement or is violence sometimes what's being made up for?
Are there people who actually start arguments or fights in order to initiate make up sex? Would someone do that?
Is the sexual energy that comes after an argument healthy? Can it be unhealthy?
Is make up sex really just a cover up for domestic violence?
If you like make up sex but the person that you're with doesn't like it or understand it, how will that work? Can that work?
Do most people who engage in make up sex usually know what they are getting into or does it get introduced to some people at the most inopportune times? Can you learn to like it and if so what does that say about a person?
Boy are we gonna get into this one. The question is how will we get out of this one? LOL
Hear this week the wonderful show of "Roof Top Farm" from the Urban HarvestSTL folks from St. Louis, MO. They are going to do more Roof Top Farms since sometimes doing ground Community Gardens can be swallowed up with urban developments. So, they decided to grow Food upward, on top of Buildings downtown. Hear the neat story and how they are working to be sustainable. These folks have been interviewed by the New York Times. I'm so glad to have them as a Guest.
Lets find out what the folks in Charlottesville, VA, are doing with a Local Food Hub.
Plus, lets hear about THRIVE, Inc., of Helena, AR, is doing for their 501(c)3 Design Firm. They work to help inner city areas thrive to be productive urban farms, community gardens, and other sustainable economic development sites to feed the community area they are in.
Have a Great Community Garden Day!
