Can you think of the person in your life that just radiates positivity and love? Someone that you feel a deep connection with? That's Regan Tilton for me and so many others. She is raw, spiritual and so full of love and wisdom. But what I learned during our conversation is that she wasn't always this way and that she's had roadblocks and pivotal moments that have led her to who she is and where she is today.

What did you wish for when you blew out the candles on your 7th birthday? For me, it was probably a new Barbie Jeep or an American Girl Doll. For Ari, it was a bit different. Something most 7-year-olds don’t even think of. Ari recounts his life leading up to this point, and the leaps he’s taken to be himself, who he was born to be.

There are some people who were born to be leaders. You know the ones! The kids in school who everyone gravitated towards. Well, Jamel Major, Anthony Scott, Christopher Jackson, and Courtland Jackson are those people. They are a group of young black men fighting for change and they're inviting everyone along for the ride. What started as a weekend bike trip to the city of Philadelphia has turned into a movement called the Black Out x Ride Out. Join me as I talk to Jamel, Anthony, Christopher, and Courtland about their upcoming cycling event on July 19th. We'll also dig deep and have those uncomfortable conversations about racism and what these men have faced throughout their lives. This is a podcast for everyone. Please listen, please demand justice, and please do what you can to fight racism in this country.
Diet culture, healthy eating, the new and hot workout. It's not just something we need to worry about, but it's ingrained in our culture. Looking good and eating right has driven our society into a tailspin. For some, they are able to shut out the "noise" and for others, it becomes an obsessive way of life. Maggie reflects back to her pivotal moment where she went through treatment for an eating disorder. Her story is inspiring and heartfelt.

Imagine this. You are faced with a situation. And you see the two roads out in front of you. We can call it a fork in the road. If you go down one path, it'll determine your destiny for life A and the other path will determine your destiny for life B. Which do you choose? The riskier one? The safer one? How do you know which is better? Joe Aquino walks us down the road he chose and why he has never looked back since.
