    Cancer/Honoring Austin Edmonds/Get to know your elders

    Cancer/Honoring Austin Edmonds/Get to know your elders

    Cancer is one of the top killers in our world. My friend Cordale sat down with me in the van and told me about his cousin, more like a brother, who was taken by surprise and so so soon. While 2021 looked hopeful for many, before the first month was over, some battled the biggest fight of their life and lost... 
    Cordale shares details of his experience standing by the side of someone he loved very much. With the fear, the worry, the pain, the exhaustion, a decision, and ultimately the loss. What do we do when someone we love gets diagnosed? How are we supposed to react? How do they react? What is cancer? 
    Remember.. You are not alone. Whatever your battle is, talk to people. Look beyond yourself and fight, love, smile.

    Conscious Thinking Toward Positive Change

    Conscious Thinking Toward Positive Change

    Lonely? Depressed? Suicidal? Why? Have you changed everything in your control? probably not. Partners, jobs, vehicles..  All three are very big attributes to our daily mood. None of which should define us. Who are you at your core? Today's episode was recorded on the last day my van drove.. In a time that we feel like we have lost all control and all normalcy, I encourage you to take advantage of the season you are currently in. You are the only one that can make a meaningful, long-term change in your life.

    My dad tried to kill the President!??

    My dad tried to kill the President!??

    What would you do if your living just a regular day, and then BAM? You're surrounded and thrown to the ground by a S.W.A.T. team? Without any explanation your freedom is ripped from you without a promise it will return. On worldwide television, you are listed as a criminal to the United States. A threat. Your identity forever tainted. How would you feel? Could you recover? Plot twist! What if this happened to someone you knew? Your own father? 
    Well, this did happen to my family. Hear what Paul Kevin Curtis, my dad, has to say about the craziest experience we never saw coming. How it changed his life? And, where he is today. 

    My father is a man of many talents. He is passionate, a truth-seeker, and he stands up for what is right. Hear him transform into Trump, Kermit the frog, etc... You can be extraordinary, but don't lose focus on where you want to end up one day.

Bob Allen DFW ,

Time to feel good

I love listening to this young lady from Mississippi. I don’t own a van but it’s really not about that. It’s about people - kindness, generosity, love, vulnerability, dreams, transparency and sharing. I wish for more podcasts like this because we need them especially in these difficult times. I’m encouraged to not lose faith in people, to put myself out there, to love deeply and to be thankful.

My daughter and her story

I personally recommend, she will show you how to live and travel on a dime... and to see places that you’ve always wanted to go!

Sara Dungo ,

Madison’s podcast is full of magnetic light and love!

Listening to her words and hearing about her journey brings so much inspiration. Through her talks, it feels like you’re just having a good conversation with an old time friend! Her kind, friendly soul radiates through in the topics she talks about and I can’t wait to hear more!
