    Her beloved son was the Columbine shooter

    Her beloved son was the Columbine shooter

    *Rebroadcast* (originally aired 9/3/21)
    After the mass murder at Robb Elementary school in Texas yesterday, we're re-airing our Sue Klebold episode. In All The Wiser, we use human stories to challenge us to think differently about the world, and to learn about different perspectives, voices, and messages.
    In order to prevent mass shootings, it is imperative to understand all the factors that lead to them. This fall, I had the privilege of talking to two moms who lost their sons in very different ways to school shootings. One of them was Sue Klebold, mother of Dylan Klebold, one of Columbine's two shooters. The second was Scarlett Lewis, the mother of Jesse Lewis, who was killed in the mass shooting at Sandy Hook. Both women loved their sons and dedicated their lives to ending mass shootings.
    It is my hope that today in re-airing Sue's episode and encouraging you to also listen to Scarlett's story, we can think deeply about how little boys grow up to become young men who commit mass murders. 
    Let's learn from them so we can all decide what role we will play in ending the heartbreak in our country.

    Former NBA Player Chris Herren on Rehab and Recovery

    Former NBA Player Chris Herren on Rehab and Recovery

    NBA player Chris Herren was spending $20,000 a month on Oxycontin, which then turned to heroin. Overdoses, car crashes and hospitalizations couldn’t keep him from destroying his career, his family, his entire life. Now fourteen years sober, Chris travels the country speaking to middle school and high school students about the dangers of drug addiction, and parents about what actually works to keep their kids from falling prey to the lure of substance abuse.

    P.S. May is Mental Health Awareness Month and we're ending Season 3 with an "ASK KIMI ANYTHING" episode. 
    You can ask Kimi anything about her experience with bipolar disorder and anxiety disorder (or anything else for that matter) and she'll tell you the truth “on air.” Why, because we believe that when we tell our truth, we create awareness and contribute to healing.
    Call us at 833-326-8623 and leave Kimi a voicemail by May 4th!

    A Little Wiser: Do you judge others?

    A Little Wiser: Do you judge others?

    Our brains are wired to make judgments about others so we can make sense of the world, and the vast amounts of information we are confronted with each day.  But there is a cost to our assumptions. In today’s mini-episode, Kimi and Christy talk about their new favorite person Martin Lockett, who spent 17 years in prison for drunk driving and manslaughter.  Martin’s story is a reminder of the power of redemption and the benefits of setting aside the judgmental mind: More connection, creativity, friendship, compassion and diversity!  Christy also shares her experience as a public defender and her northstar borrowed from the brilliant Bryan Stevenson: “each of us is more than the worst thing we’ve ever done.”   
    Last, All The Wiser was nominated for a webby. Go vote!
