    RESILIENCE with Murphy Lynne - Author of "Am I Invisible? Things I Wish Teachers Knew" - Autism Awareness

    REBOOT with Dave Warnock - Atheist (former evangelical minister) dealing with ALS diagnosis - "Dying Out Loud" - The Clergy Project

    REBOOT with Dave Warnock - Atheist (former evangelical minister) dealing with ALS diagnosis - "Dying Out Loud" - The Clergy Project

    "You have ALS" - Dave was shocked and adjusted upon hearing this diagnosis, but the events earlier in the decade served as his true "reboot".  After 35+ years as an evangelical minister, he deconstructed and became an atheist.  This wasn't the easy path, yet he learned there were others like him through "The Clergy Project", an organization who help other religious leaders who no longer believe in the supernatural, many of whom are harboring that secret.

    He's choosing to "Die Out Loud" and "Carpe The F***'in' Diem."  You'll hear a generous man making the most of the time he has left.

    Thank you to listeners Jim Dells and Matt MacKellar for your questions, Carter Warden of Johnson City TN for your song, and Danny Pellerito for our show's theme music.

    RESILIENCE with Christine Yared - Author of "Private Love Public School - Gay Teacher Under Fire"

    RESILIENCE with Christine Yared - Author of "Private Love Public School - Gay Teacher Under Fire"

    LGBTQ+ AND THE CLASSROOM:  Gerry Crane and his partner Randy exchanged vows during a private commitment ceremony. By the next week, word spread that he had married a man. The gifted and once-treasured high school music teacher was  suddenly disparaged and pressured to resign by powerful community members with tragic consequences. 

    25 years later, Christine uses her skills as an attorney and writer to publish a moving book that recounts the story.  We discuss Gerry's leadership qualities and legacy.  What are the  implications for our school systems and how can we better empower LGBTQ+ students, parents, and educators?

    Special thanks to Christine and others who contributed their voices to this episode:  Jayson Luce, Luke Rosenberg, Michele Siderman, Ken Rausch  (read by Jim Dells), and Jay Kaplan.
