Welcome! Throughout the time I've been doing this podcast, I've stayed away from looking backwards. Things like prison conditions, abusive guards, sentencing, and other topics related to being in prison are not the purpose of the podcast. I want to put prison behind me and move on with life in a way that proves I am worthy of the second chance I've…
 
Hello! Sometimes I think it's good to focus on ourselves. We' are not being overly self-centered when we think about, consider, and execute strategies to improve "anything" about ourselves.

Welcome! I hope you're doing well! I've been thinking for quiet some time that doing an episode on sex addiction would probably be a good thing to do but frankly, actually going about doing it has seemed a little awkward. I've looked at guests to interview and there are some experts in recovery with professional credentials that I may still try to …
 
Hello! I hope everyone is safe and warm. It has been a rough week here in the Houston area!

My heart goes out to people walking out of prison into this mess because while freedom…
 
Hello Everyone! I came across a really good article on overcoming adversity I wanted to share. Overcoming adversity is a topic this podcast will always put front and center.

Hello there! You ever have a night in which no matter what you do, you can't fall asleep? I do. Occasionally I'll find myself ruminating about whatever issue has popped up (as issues do) and it keeps me from getting any sleep. We've all been there. Reintegrating into society is alone enough to cause the kind of anxiety that results in restless nigh…

Welcome, Despite this bizarre time, we still need to pay our bills and buy groceries. In fact, there are ex-offenders that were in the middle of a job search when this all began.

Hello Everyone! Hopefully you're staying safe! On this episode I take a look at our situation and pass on a few thoughts I have about it all. There were 3 major pandemics in the 20th century. The 1918 Spanish Flu, the 1957 Asian Flu, and the 1968 Hong Kong Flu took a huge toll on life in the United States. These numbers are approximate but generall…
