The Carleena Show features in-depth conversations with guests from around the world.
Police Social Worker with Bloomington Indiana Police Department: Melissa Stone
Melissa Stone is a Police Social Worker with Bloomington Indiana's Police Department. Melissa and I discuss: why her department created this new program, the types of calls she responds to, how she interacts with people in crisis, law enforcement mental health, hostage negotiations, her unique role growing up in a working-class home, her decision to become a social worker, and advice she gives other police departments considering a police social worker program.
If you enjoy this episode, you may like previous episodes where I interviewed a first responder, funeral director, forest ranger, working dog trainer, and many other guests with hands-on or misunderstood professions that help shed light on the human experience.
Special Guest: Melissa Stone.

Corbin Cabrera: Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) Legacy Mentor
When Corbin Cabrera was 13 years old, his father--Army Lt. Col. David E. Cabrera--was killed by a Taliban suicide bomber in Afghanistan in 2011. Two years later, Corbin discovered a program that connected other children who lost a parent in combat or the war at home. The Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS) Good Grief Camp meets in DC each Memorial Day weekend and helps kids of the fallen connect, process their grief, and have fun together. A couple years later, Corbin would became a legacy mentor with TAPS and start mentoring a little girl and her sister. Corbin is a senior at Texas A&M University.

Remi Adeleke: TRANSFORMED: A Navy SEAL's Unlikely Journey from the Throne of Africa, to the Streets of the Bronx, to Defying All Odds
Remi Adeleke is the author of TRANSFORMED: A Navy SEAL's Unlikely Journey from the Throne of Africa, to the Streets of the Bronx, to Defying All Odds. Today on the show, Remi shares who he wrote the book for and why he decided to write the book himself and not use a ghost writer. We talk about his time as a Navy SEAL, working in human intelligence and how learned to listen and find common ground with informants. I ask him what it’s like to be a lead consultant on the forthcoming Netflix film, 6 Underground and if he could offer youth insight on ways to find meaning and purpose in their lives.
