Episode 17: Organ Donation with Russell Creed
My guest for this episode, Russell Creed, talks with me about the challenges that people in need of an organ transplant face. He is an organ recipient himself because of his rare disease called Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis (PSC). There is a shortage of organ donors in the US, which makes it challenging to receive the organ that some people need to save their lives. If you are willing and able to donate an organ and are not already an organ donor, then consider signing up to be one. You can find out how to become a donor at https://organdonor.gov/register.html. Here are the links to the organizations that Russell mentioned in the interview: http://pscpartners.org/ https://chrisklugfoundation.org/ https://unos.org/

Episode 15: People vs. People
Liberal vs. Conservative, Republican vs, Democrat, we hear it all the time. What we don't realize is that we are people vs. people. We argue constantly about issues for no reason. We all want the same outcome, positive change. No one wants to see something that is causing a problem continue to happen, yet we constantly argue about them and never make any progress. Drop the titles, educate yourself, and come up with new ideas and new ways to fix the problems that you see.
