This podcast was inspired by my own journey, and evolution through life, and wanting to share my story as well as stories from regular every day people.

I'm a single dad, Union blue collar guy, former drug addict, spent time in Federal and State prison for drug trafficking and fraud. I was released in 2006 with nothing but the clothes on my back, and a bag of mail, and legal paperwork.

In 2010 I finally kicked a long time methamphetamine habit, and started the long climb back up the ladder of life. I'm happy to say that I have managed to navigate myself into a position where I feel confident in sharing my struggles and successes, in the hopes of helping others.

In May of 2019 I published my first episode and in February of 2021 I published my 100th episode with 40+ waiting to be released. Since starting this journey the show has evolved into a topical variety show with guests from a wide range of backgrounds.

I am dedicated to bringing guests on that can speak about interesting topics mixed in with comeback stories. I will always be a voice for those that have been wrongfully convicted and drug offenders that have been over sentenced for nonviolent behavior.

    Dr. Dave Bettenhausen & Carla Bogni-Kidd 3x Authors Talk About Spirituality & Reincarnation... Recorded 4/19/2021

    Dr. Dave Bettenhausen & Carla Bogni-Kidd 3x Authors Talk About Spirituality & Reincarnation... Recorded 4/19/2021

    BIO:

    *

    Dr. Dave Bettenhausen serves part-time, as the Vice President of Medical Affairs at a small midwestern hospital presently. He retired last year after twenty-five years as a physician and ten previous years as a cardiac nurse. Carla Bogni-Kidd retired last year after forty years of office managing for Dave and his predecessor.

    *

    Dave and Carla have been the best of friends since 1998 when Dave purchased the medical practice where Carla was the office manager. Together, they have been on a spiritual journey since beginning meditation in 2014. They have written three books with one more releasing in 2021. The first, “The Gift of Past Lives with Mother, Isabella, God & Elizabeth” is the story of how they learned they have lived 29 past lives together.

    *

    Their second book, Hell No, Reincarnation? is their reconciliation of their upbringing in Catholicism and other religions with what they now learned and believe about reincarnation. The Manual explores just how God creates us and how that relates to our Angels, Spirit Guides, astrology, traits and archetypes.

    Dave and Carla have taught meditation at their local University as well at their Senior Center and services organizations. They trained with Dr. and Mrs. Brian Weiss at The Omega Institute in Past Life Regression after writing their first two books to learn more about regression therapy.

    *

    Their common goal is to share the message with the world that if you follow five simple rules which are to live without conceit, jealousy, selfishness, and unforgiveness and do everything in love, you can liberate yourself from the wheel of karma and reincarnation, returning home with God, Source, Tao, Creator. The answer is always LOVE.

    Tragedy to Triumph, Portia Louder Shares about Spending 4.5 Years in Federal Prison... Recorded 6/16/2021

    Tragedy to Triumph, Portia Louder Shares about Spending 4.5 Years in Federal Prison... Recorded 6/16/2021

    In this episode I am talking to Portia Louder about her story and how it led her to being sentenced to 4.5 years in federal prison. Portia and I crossed paths after she reached out to me after hearing or seeing a guest appearance that I did on a podcast called "Louder Now". We had a phone conversation, set up a date to record and I had to cancel because I went back to work. Another cool fact about something we both share. Both of us have been to The Other Side Academy to tell our stories. 

    *

    *

    Here is a little bit about Portia from her: 

    *

    Portia Louder, built a photography company that photographed 200 weddings a year in Utah, and surrounding states. She became involved in real estate in 2004 and was investigated and indicted for mortgage fraud. Portia was sentenced to a 7 year prison sentence, and served 4.5 years in federal prison, in California, and Minnesota.  

    *

    She has documented much of that experience on her blog and Facebook page. She addresses addiction, loneliness, self awareness, and what it takes to move past mistakes and setbacks in life. Portia developed a love and sisterhood with the women she met in prison, and just finished writing a book highlighting many of their stories.  

    *

    Portia has been married to her husband Chad for 24 years; they have 5 children and one grandchild and live in Highland Utah. She currently works at a treatment center helping women work through trauma, and overcoming addiction.  

    *

    *

    What bottom or life struggle would you like to share with our audience?  * Taking full ownership brought power back into my life to look forward, set goals, and dream again. Accountability is freedom for me. Every struggle had the seeds of transformation. It's up to me to decide how my story ends and I want an amazing ending!

    Sam Tripoli (Tin Foil Hat Podcast), Truthzilla, & Debra Gets Red Pilled...Recorded 4/11/21

    Sam Tripoli (Tin Foil Hat Podcast), Truthzilla, & Debra Gets Red Pilled...Recorded 4/11/21

    I am currently running through the livestreams I did and haven't put the audio out as an episode yet. I have a folder of almost 30 to run through. I'll add the date recorded to the title like I did in this one. So you will at least know what time period we are talking about if we mention any current events. This recording has been up on my YouTube channel since the day I recorded it. I'm just adding it to my podcast library.



    I was going to add all of the links to these shows but 2 of them are no longer recording. Sam Tripoli is still rockin it!  Just look his name up and you can find all the places he is at. Some socials got cancelled so any links I had from then might not be good now. So my bad....I have some great conversations to get out still even if some of them are from 3 years ago.



    I created a poll over on Spotify and the question is...Do you want to hear the unpublished older content that I have? So if you want to answer that yes or no question head over to this episode on Spotify.

    "That's Why We Need to Bring Back TRUMP" Song Creators Sandy & Roger Share…

    "That's Why We Need to Bring Back TRUMP" Song Creators Sandy & Roger Share…

    In this episode I am talking to Sandy Koplowitz and Roger Homefield whom my friend Adrienne introduced me to. Now just because I like their song doesn't mean that I am supporting Trump. If you watch or listen to the episode I tell you how I feel about him and what I think about another 4 years of Trump. Below is the back story of how this song was born.

    Sandy brought Roger his lyrics for a pro-Trump parody, even though Roger hadn't sung or performed in 15 years and had become a political activist hosting his own "The Joe Citizen Show."  Roger modified the tempo and keys of Rogers and Hart's "The Lady is a Tramp" sung by Frank Sinatra for Sandy's new version for Roger to belt out criticism of Democrats and praise for Trump's accomplishments.  A musical weapon aimed at Trump's adversaries and deploring Biden's mismanaging America. Roger did an amazing job fitting his vocals into the song with the band, with Sandy's lyrics hitting the hot spots to help voters make the right decisions before America slips away for good, if Biden wins another term.

     Homefield was lead jazz trombonist with the Buddy Rich, Stan Kenton, and Maynard Ferguson big bands and was "Joe Citizen" on his pro-American radio show, composer for his orchestra, and arranged music for his musical variety act. Koplowitz and Homefield met playing senior softball.  A long-time member of the American Mensa Society, Sandy was a computer programmer for IBM and today he and Gabi, his opera-singing fiancée, perform singing gigs entertaining residents at assisted living facilities and nursing homes.

Kitty Sweets ,

Lucky me!

Excited to have stumbled upon this inspiring podcast. I work with so many people who are challenged emotionally from a history of depression and anxiety and I can’t wait to share this show. Sean is the perfect guide for anyone on this journey. Grateful for the knowledge.

Covid vaccine “death shot”

Dude has outed himself as a right wing nut job who refers to the Covid vaccine as a “death shot” and started covering the so called “freedom rallies” of ill-informed conspiracy theorists. Too bad, because the podcast was pretty good up until now.

My Core Intentions ,

Great Podcast Host

I was on Nowhere to go but up podcast tonight. Sean is a great host who helps his guest fell comfortable telling details of their story. Brings grat content and stories for his listeners to learn from. Thanks again Sean
