    The Gangster's Guide to Sobriety

    The Gangster's Guide to Sobriety

    Richie Stephens became an alcoholic and a petty criminal as a teenager growing up in Ireland. He became a drug addict and then a drug trafficker as his life spiraled out of control. The Irishman eventually ended up in San Francisco where he joined a Chinese gang. He nearly ended his own life before realizing that his addiction was at the heart of his self-destructive ways. A journey to sobriety and a trip down the state of California to Hollywood led to Richie Stephens becoming an actor where today (of course) he often plays criminals. Stephens tells the incredible story of his life with co-authors John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky in the new book "The Gangster's Guide to Sobriety: My Life in 12 Steps."

    The coming together of the authors and the writing of the book is an incredible story in and of itself. It's now being developed as a TV series. That's because Altschuler and Krinsky are successful Hollywood writers and producers known for creating and running high-profile TV shows including creating the successful series Silicon Valley. During this podcast, Altschuler and Stephens tell that story along with tales from Stephens' life and lessons learned on Stephens' path to sobriety.

    The Human Trial Documentary

    The Human Trial Documentary

    The Human Trial is a documentary from filmmakers Lisa Hepner and Guy Mossman that follows a human clinical trial using embryonic stem cells over the course of seven years as researchers and patient volunteers work on a cure for type 1 diabetes. The filmmakers gained unprecedented access to the San Diego biotech start-up ViaCyte which has developed an implantable pouch that holds stem cells programmed to create the kind of insulin-producing pancreatic islet cells destroyed by type 1 diabetes. It is considered one of the most promising paths to a functional cure for the disease.

    During this podcast, Lisa Hepner, who has type 1 diabetes, discusses what she learned during the filming of the documentary. She talks about the process of gaining the trust of both researchers and patients as they experience elation and disappointment. And she reveals her view on if and when researchers will develop a cure for type 1 diabetes.

    Re-release: Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor, Physicist

    Dr. Jill Bolte Taylor is a neuroscientist, former member of the Time Magazine "100 Most Influential People in the World" list, and the New York Times best-selling author of "My Stroke of Insight" which documented the devastating stroke she suffered in 1996 along with her eight-year-long recovery to regain the ability to speak, read, write, and walk.

    During this podcast, Dr. Bolte Taylor goes beyond the concept of the "rational left brain and emotional right brain" to argue that the brain actually has four distinct "characters" living in it and that by understanding them, one can better choose thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

Attentive

I enjoy your interviews, you are thoughtful with your questions and have the greatest ability to listen & retain the information in your guest’s answers. I am always surprised when the segment is over. It goes by quickly.

Hi Frank, related to interview w/ Dolores Huerta

I was in one of Cesar Chavez in Delano California approx 1975, I had to be 18 years old. This “big meeting” in that big auditorium called 40 Acres. In that meeting hundreds of agriculture workers were brought in Support of Cesar Chavez, stupid me, I thought this was a nice meeting in pro of all these farm workers, darn, I was very disappointed, not one word in Spanish came out of that “pro farm workers” meeting. Those workers didn’t know one word in English. To me all this meeting was about Cesar Chavez personal benefit. All of the Ranchers/field owners were definitely very happy with him, who knows what kind of good deals given to this “pro workers” leader. I’m sorry, I cannot have respect for these type of individuals.
My name Ramiro Chávez, Santa Ana CA

I listen to your interviews to improve my vocabulary

Hi Frank. I really appreciate your interviews. I see them as advocating for both sides of the topic. It is hard to see the positive in the side we do not agree with or the negative in the side we do. Your interviews make me do that. They don’t always change my mind but I see their point. I look forward to learning more fro your podcasts. Thank you & God bless
