Love My Limp

Like many people I found Jordan Ross’ podcast after seeing him on The Chosen. I sincerely appreciate the hopeful and wholesome tone, it’s interesting to hear how people got to this point in their lives, what drives them forward, and what they struggle with. I dealt with severe bullying as a child, and suicide ideation. I’m sorry others had similar experiences, but I appreciate knowing I’m in good company. I bought a shirt that asks “What Do You Love About Yourself?” and I’ve had some good conversations come when I wear it. (For what it’s worth: I love that I’m brave.)

Since I just got through the episode with Giovani Cairo, I’ll answer the question of what storylines I want for James and Thaddeus. I know season 3 is going to have a come to Jesus meeting for James, and I would like to see him progress to the point where he can help someone else, maybe Matthew or a new character, come to terms with or even love their disability. I want him to be confident, with himself, and his relationships (platonic and romantic).

As the self-appointed captain of the good ship Lost/Hairdresser, I want Thaddeus and Mary to get together. I’ve been sailing that ship since Season 1, episode 5, and I will go down with it.

Thank you so much!

Love your podcast. It speaks to me on so many levels.
1-Barry Corbin—my husband is from Lamesa ♥️. (And They should make a sequel to Urban Cowboy. Whatever became of Bud and Sissy??? Lol)
2-a limp. Covid pneumonia ravaged my body and left me so very weak. I’ve fallen 5 times and it messed up my hips and left me w/ a slight limp. I’m working out, killing it on the treadmill and learning how to walk correctly/safely all over again.
3-and of course, The Chosen. It’s my comfort show :)
4-thank you again and Gods bless!
