Call in to speak with the host
How do we move forward when a devastating loss befalls us?
Imagine being a bartender at a busy Broadway show when just before intermission, you get the call - your too young dad suddenly died. As your family's screams of despair pierce your ear and instantly shatter your world, hundreds of patrons abuzz with energy from the comedic first act descend on you. They hastily begin ordering drinks, and a shell that looks like Mike makes them, insides crumbles away.
When a stranger's unpredictable phone call delivers a message that Mike's dad had contacted her from "the other side," it kicks off a chain of events that would entirely change Mike's family's perspective on life, death, and the transcendent nature of love. Join Mike on his remarkable quest, as his skeptical mindset gets challenged and eventually overruled through an extraordinary journey, leading to an event that would forever change his understanding of reality.
In today's special guest, Mike Anthony's book Love, Dad: How My Father Died...Then Told Me He Didn't, he intimately shares one family's darkest hours and their road to healing, a road long ignored or scoffed at by the scientific community. A healthy skeptic, he goes to great lengths to uncover the paradigm-shifting research into the nature of consciousness that exists, and shows us why it must be put back in the forefront with no shame attached.
So compelling is Mike's story that Netflix chose to feature it in three episodes of their series Surviving Death.
Mike Anthony has been a professional actor and (not-professional) bartender since he graduated from Wayne State University with a Master of Arts degree in Theater. His first book, Life At Hamilton, chronicles the extraordinary time he spent as a theater bartender with an up-close perspective of Hamilton: An American Musical as it rocketed into Broadway history.
