    Episode 86: The Suffering of D-Day with Bob Gibson

    Very seldomly in this life do we get to hear about history from a participant. Bob Gibson was a young man who was compelled to fight for his country during World War II. He found himself entering into the unknown as he landed on the beach during the D-Day invasion on June 6, 1944.  At 98 years old the memories are as fresh now as when they first happened.  After D-day was over, the war did not stop as Bob went  onto fight in the Battle of The Bulge.  In this episode of The Suffering Podcast, join us as we hear living history, and learn from it so that we can never forget.

    Episode 84: The Suffering of A Gay Firefighter

    Episode 84: The Suffering of A Gay Firefighter

    Mark Hettinger had a calling to serve others. Entering into a life of service to help others does not mean you are robotic and void of a personal life. Aside from being a great fireman, Marc is also a very proud gay man. This in no way impedes his ability to do the work that is required. We are often taught not to bring our personal lives into our jobs, until our personal lives are viewed by others as different. One’s sexual orientation does not define them, but allows them the ability to take their life experiences and overcome suffering.

    Episode 82: The Suffering of a Pastor with Ron Lewis

    Pastor Ron Lewis has been in the Christian ministry for over 30 years. Out of the ashes of the tragedy of 9/11 Every Nation‘s church was born from Pastor Lewises vision. His word of hope and community resonated through his belief in serendipitous life events that bring us closer to our faith. Reshaping tragedy has become a hallmark of how Pastor Lewis shapes his congregation’s vision of what you true belief should become. Today you will find him traveling the country spreading his word through speeches and his writing endeavors. His recent book Miracles in Manhattan gives us a unique look into how we turned suffering into success.

    Episode 81: The Suffering of an Undercover with Mike Codella

    Episode 81: The Suffering of an Undercover with Mike Codella

    From a childhood in a neighborhood where the ending story could go either way, Mike Codella chose to take a career path to enforce the law rather than break it.  Needing a change, Mike joined the NYPD in 1983 and never looked back.  Truly believing in his life’s mission, to make a difference, he matriculated up the ladder in the dangerous world of undercover work in Alphabet City and Red Hook, Mike took to the street to leave them much safer than he left them.  Working on high profile cases such as Eton Paetz to the infamous Son of Sam the true love for Law Enforcement shines through with every soft spoken word. 
    Now through his Brazillian Jui-Jitsu school, the Codella Academy to his book Alphaville 1988, Mike continues to make a difference in lives into his retirement.
