    Part 3 of 3 with Bruce Lisker: In at 17 Years Old, Out at 44 Years Old

    Part 3 of 3 with Bruce Lisker: In at 17 Years Old, Out at 44 Years Old

    In part 3 of our 3 part series with Bruce Lisker, we talk about those last minutes leading up to his freedom. He paints the picture for us of exactly what it was like stepping onto free soil at the age of 44 for the first time since going in behind bars at the young, tender age of 17 years old. Don’t worry your girls asked him every last detail from what he ate, to what he wore, to what he did first, and so on. Bruce invites us into his life now, took us for a virtual ride in his #sexyAF Mercedes convertible he always dreamed of owning when he was behind bars, and just keeps it #realAF with us. We enjoyed recording every second of this podcast and we continue to text and be in touch with Bruce. Thanks for tuning in for this three part series. We hope you loved it as much as we love you. Mean it.

    Part 2 of 3: Still Locked Up…Life on the Inside

    Part 2 of 3: Still Locked Up…Life on the Inside

    On part 2 of this 3 part series, we dig deeper into what life behind bars is actually like. We were mind blown by Bruce’s positivity and mental strength during his 26 years he spent locked up for a crime he did not commit. If you’re struggling with the stay at home orders, Bruce provides some great ideas of how to keep yourselves busy… perhaps you’re #desperateAF to get your husband’s name tattooed on your face but all of the tattoo parlors are closed? Have no fear, Bruce will give you all the dets so you can get this done (gather an old walkman, a pencil, a toothbrush, and a paperclip). Liat was pretty pumped to hear that she would be an “overlord” in prison. This episode gives you a glimpse inside prison, while exploring a man’s ability to NEVER GIVE UP. Tune in or miss the F%&k out.

    Part 1: Wrongfully Convicted for Killing My Mother with Bruce Lisker

    Part 1: Wrongfully Convicted for Killing My Mother with Bruce Lisker

    All we can say is HOLY SHIT. In part 1 of a 3 part series, we talk to Bruce Lisker, a 55 year old man, who served 26 years of his life in prison for a crime he did not  commit #WTF #NotCool. Bruce walks us through every detail of his story from the devastation of finding his mother struggling for her life, calling 911 for help and being handcuffed and taken into custody for what he could never have imagined would be the next 26 years of his life. We tie so many behavioral principles into these episodes so you can get your dose of true crime and ABA. You won’t want to miss any of this three part series to hear what this man went through and how he has come out on the other side.

Red Dott.xc ,

BB’s are my R+

As I’ve been preparing to pass the hardest exam of my life, Liat and Casey are my source of positive reinforcement in so many ways. I listen to the podcast when I need a mental break from a certain highly aversive fluency test-prep service that will not be named. And I recently finished the 1 month video bundle which was such an amazing experience!!! and whether I used it for behavior momentum or applying Premack, these b’s and there dissemination style are my high p through and through. Thank you for being fun, for being relatable, for being real, for being YOU !!!! Love you, mean it.

Aliiiiiiii! ,

Relatable

You guys are awesome and deserve this reinforcement. Love how you make the concepts relatable so we can understand them. Thank you!

Goodbye_Love ,

Some well deserved reinforcement

These ladies make ABA principles so much fun and easy to understand. Liat and Casey always make me laugh during their episodes and it’s helps me to talk about the field I love with other people.
Plus they’re sooo reachable on social media and have as much fun talking to people on social media as they have with each other.
