    We have unearthed, a what was once to be thought of as, a lost episode from 2017, with Stephenie Barba. In this episode Anthony and Stephenie chat about the obstacles and adversity that she faced as a single parent. Stephenie gives us a candid look into what it was like to deal with being a new mother who found herself homeless, poverty stricken, and simply feeling lost and worthless. In the time we spend with Stephenie, she speaks about what it truly means to make a life for yourself throughout all the struggles that life can hand to you, she speaks on what it is like to rebuild and thrive. Born into the world to lose, she finds it in herself to win. Join us on this candid interview.

    After Midnight Society Vol 3 The Jon Jon F'n Phenomenon Edition

    On tonight’s episode of The Spread Hope Like Fire’s After Midnight Society, we sit and talk with Jon Jon The Phenomenon . Anthony asked John to come onto the podcast to speak about what happens when a family tragedy hits home and how to recover from the trauma. We talk about what mental illness can do to someone on the brink and how we can prevent harm. John shares his brother’s tragic story of murder and suicide in hopes to help prevent this tragedy from happening to another family. Anthony and John talk about childhood trauma, and how the professional wrestling business played a hand in both John and Anthony’s life and how pro wrestling built a bond of brotherhood between them. Again, step inside as we break the stigma on mental health a demystify the therapeutic process.
