    Kal Sutherland - War on life

    Kal Sutherland - War on life

    Shell shocked, broken, wasted and gone. Which problem do you process first?

    Kal Sutherland was the former manager of the British Forces Broadcasting Service; a real life "Good Morning Vietnam" outfit covering war on location across the globe. He tells us about the mentality of people ravaged by destruction.

    His vivid memories and the stories of his career focus on moral, transparency and grounding yourself to be present in every situation; even if bombs are going off overhead.

    For our listeners, we strongly want this episode to resonate one message; be empathetic and understand what people are going through. We are all human, we all feel human.

    Lola Smolokowski sharing her true gift with the World.

    Lola Smolokowski sharing her true gift with the World.

    What is a gift if you can not share it with the world?

    Lola Smolokowski grew up in the former USSR and studied at one of its famed "School for Gifted Children" for her remarkable piano skills.

    She's played some of history's most exceptional and complex pieces with fierce determination that she gracefully concealed with the poise found in a true performer.

    That poise was still present under completely different circumstances....

    Life can deviate from a path you've prepared for to one you never knew was coming. Lola's story of raising a child with autism is a version of that narrative.

    In this episode, we explore the mentality Lola adopted when she found out her son was autistic. And, how she used that same determination from her days as a performer to become the founder of DAR, an autism center for children from every nationality.

    Sarah Price and what happens after the Olympics

    Sarah Price and what happens after the Olympics

    Two Time Olympian Tells Us There is No Training for This One Thing….

    Sarah Price was well on her way to achieving every athlete’s ultimate dream, Olympic Gold. A world record and multiple gold medals at the European Championships, she was as good a bet as anyone could make.

    But tragedy struck at both her Olympic Finals in Sydney and Athens and she never claimed victory after thousands of hours of practice. Sarah’s dream was over.

    Moving on from professional sport is the part nobody talks about. How does someone go from being analysed, examined, coached and trained for greatness to being left to fend for themselves? Sarah has suffered from weight gain, insecurity and not having the tools to be who she wanted to be after the Olympics. With no help, she had to find her own path.

    This is definitely a topic you won’t want to miss and is full of information for those trying to find their new way forward.

    An Epidemic Hard to Ignore - ADHD with Kim Raine

    Kim Raine knew something wasn't right. She didn't go about things in the same way as other classmates, colleagues or friends. She would be engaged in topics that would interest her immensely and switch off for anything else.

    Kim was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 49. Her life story all started to make sense with this new information and led her to find the balance in her life that she needed. Like a puzzle all coming together, Kim Raine was now ready to share her life's experience with high-flying ADHDers and coach them into success.

    She has dedicated her life to helping people understand what ADHD is, how it affects genders differently and how you can use ADHD to your advantage. This is a highly shareable episode and we encourage anyone who has ADHD to listen.

    Be sure to read her new book: "Square Pegs: A book of Self-discovery for women with ADHD"
