    Tell Me Something Good: 2020 Reflections

    2020 was a circus disaster for sure, but the big top didn't fully catch fire. Trapeze artists fell, and the resilient got back up to take another swing.
    To borrow from what you'll soon hear, "but if you’re breathing today, you’ve made it this far. That’s no small thing. Incredible, even!" Wherever you are and whatever you're doing while you listen, kick back and soak it in.

    #20 – Season 1 Wrap Up: Listener Feedback, Inspiration in nature, and a personal Non-Profit Spotlight

    In this episode, I'm flying solo because I have some interesting things to share as a wrap-up to Season 1. We're approaching the one year anniversary of recording the first Collected Clan episode, and it's been an exciting year introducing you to some of the outstanding people in my world that I've collected along the way. Collected not as objects, but as treasures from the journey. In each conversation, I learned something new about these people I've known for years...and some of them for what seems like a lifetime, but even so I learned something new. That right there is the power of conversation.

    RELATED INFO
    End Slavery Monologues ticket info
    This unique theatrical event features stories of survivors and those impacted by Human Trafficking to educate the audience about this issue.
     
    NON-PROFIT SPOTLIGHT This episode’s Non-Profit Spotlight supports End Slavery Tennessee.
    End Slavery Tennessee provides comprehensive aftercare for human trafficking survivors, many of whom are minors...children and teenagers...who were sexually exploited throughout Tennessee. Every month in Tennessee, 94 minors are used for sex trafficking. Beyond sex trafficking, there's labor trafficking where goods and services are continually produced without compensating the laborer.
    The mission of End Slavery Tennessee is to promote healing of human trafficking survivors and strategically confront slavery in in the Volunteer State. Slavery seems like a rather harsh word. Didn't slavery end after the Civil War? Not exactly. If fact, there are more slaves now than at any time in history.
    Learn more about End Slavery Tennessee online at EndSlaveryTN.org. Watch the Voices of Freedom video on the home page. If you're in the Nashville area on February 1, 2019, you can hear real stories of survivors at the End Slavery Monologues event. Click here for ticket info.

    #19 – Stephen Tedeschi: On Performing Arts, Being Italian, and the Joy of Christmas

    #19 – Stephen Tedeschi: On Performing Arts, Being Italian, and the Joy of Christmas

    My guest today is Stephen Tedeschi. Stephen is another artist in my world, and we've shared many a stage together with him at the helm of numerous dramatic arts performances, which, of course, we talk about here. He's very much Italian, and his fantastic family is always nearby. You'll even hear some of them in the background a time or two enjoying life together, and this will give you an accurate glimpse into a typical Tedeschi family day.
     
    As always, we feature a Non-Profit Spotlight selected by our guest. Two actually.
     
    Stick around to the end where we have a special holiday presentation for you. Stephen is very much a fan of the Christmas season, and we've got a special surprise for you.

     
    Visit the show notes to see at www.collectedclan.com/stephentedeschi. There you'll see photos and supporting material and learn more about the non-profits Stephen supports.

Live the life stories!!

After listening to the the first podcast, I was so moved and challenged in my life to connect with people in my life who have impacted me. The conversations are so relaxed and genuine, it like sitting with friends and having cup of Java and learning stories inspire. The series really challenges self reflection.
Great podcast!!!

Love hearing life stories!

I have been super intrigued lately by people’s life stories and how the people we meet and situations we face impact our lives. Loved every episode so far. Definitely has me thinking, “who’s in my clan?”.
