“Her Brothers” Strive to Reshape “Her” Normal. Men & Boys Inspiring Men & Boys to End Violence Against Women.



When I heard the band, “Her Brothers” play at the Mighty Peace Day Concert they took my breath away. These three young men were using their creative talent in music to help inspire and influence others to be a part of reshaping what “normal” looks like in the lives of women. Band member Gabe Penner and I discuss safe language, bystander awareness, sex trafficking, changing our dialogue and supporting each other as human beings.

I HAVE TODAY: Redefining possible with Diane Forster, Inventor & Empowerment Coach



I have had the privilege of working with some incredible people in my career, people who are inspired to make this world a better place. Many of those people are women. Doctors, Inventors, CEOs, Entrepreneurs, Scientists, Astronauts, Writers these are just a few of the professions these women belong to. Yet, not matter how many women I meet who have worked hard to be in these leadership roles, I meet just as many women who believe they could never hold these positions. In the 21st Century why is it still so difficult for women to believe they are valued and that they deserve success? How can we lift each other up to redefine possible?

My guest today is, Diane Forster, is an inventor and CEO of Diane Forster Innovations as well as the Founder of I Have Today, a platform that focuses on helping women live empowered, fulfilling lives through books, digital offerings, live events, coaching, mentoring, TV and radio. I caught up with Diane to talk about how faced hurdles in her life and why she chose to focus her work to empower women.

Rob Nash Saves The Lives Of Hundreds Of Youth With His Music & Tattoos Their Names On His Arm



Robb was the victim of a serious auto accident, a head on collision with a semi truck. He was found with a fractured skull and pronounced dead by first responders. But by the time the ambulance had arrived at the scene to take his body to the hospital, Robb’s pulse had miraculously returned. After a difficult recovery, and despite significant physical and emotional scars, Robb was left with a new outlook on life.

He started a band as a way to leverage the power of music to share his philosophy, and soon had songs in the Canadian Top 10. Robb saw musical success as a platform from which to influence and motivate young people. He put aside performing to large audiences, and began speaking to youth in their schools across the country, playing his songs and sharing their meaning with his young audiences.

Robb and his band bring their presentation to more than 200 schools each year, and have reached over 1 million students to date through school shows and social media. He walks head on into difficult topics, knowing that these are the things on young people’s minds; bullying, addiction, self harm and suicide.

RSVP From Heaven: How Psychic Medium Marie Saint-Louis Went From Readings In Her Kitchen To Hollywood Parties.



Marie Saint-Louis is a Psychic and Spiritual Medium (since childhood) with international cliental and a growing celebrity list. Her book, R.S.V.P From Heaven is a great read and follows Marie at the beginning of her journey conducting sessions from her kitchen table for clients and the engaging, humorous and moving stories of how she moved on to read at parties and events around the U.S. including Medical Marijuana Festival, Hollywood Halloween Parties (sponsored by Hustler, Playboy, MAXIM), an upscale Adult Lifestyle (swingers) NYE Party and many more.

Marie also works with both law enforcement and families on criminal and missing persons cases. I am excited to have her on my show today to share some of her incredible experiences.


Giant Rock: Chad Meek Was Abducted By Aliens & He Wants To Share Their Message



I have always been interested in the topic of Aliens and if we have ever been visited by these other worldly creatures. When I had the opportunity to interview Chad C. Meek, who’s family was instrumental in the 1950’s U.F.O movement, I was interested in finding out more about his experiences.

Chad is the nephew of George Van Tassel  the famous alien contactee who held the first ongoing spacecraft conventions in the high desert at a place called Giant Rock, and who also coined the term “channeling” to distinquish this form of communication from that used by spirit mediums.

I never expected to find out in our interview that my son’s vision of heaven was the vision that Chad had in a near death experience. Having never heard of that particular vision before you can only imagine my shock to find out that Chad had captured my son’s vision in his book. Do you believe in Aliens or life after death? If so, you will love this interview!
