Drew Girardin's Journey
This one is unique within the catalogue because we delve into the mystic a bit. Drew created some drug/addiction issues for himself when he moved into the big city from a small town to attend University. It took him 10 years to get it together but when he did, he did it big. He's now a healer trained in the arts of the revered Modern Mystery School. This is a must listen.

Jacklena Bentley's Journey
I don't know where to begin with this one except to say it is the most extreme episode of this podcast to date. I don't like to put warnings on episodes because chances are if you're here you've been through something pretty difficult yourself. This one however, takes it to a whole other level. Huge kudos to my guest Jacklena Bentley for sharing her incredible journey.

Big Kris Bawden's Journey
How can you know a guy for 15 years and not know he was struggling with mental wellness issues? I suppose Kris could be asking the very same question of me. The thing is, some of us were and still are very leery of talking about it. The social stigma remains but it is getting better slowly as more and more of us come forward. Kris has been dealing with depression and anxiety issues from when he was just 7 years old to right now. This is his story.
