201: From Hunter to Vegan

201: From Hunter to Vegan

 

Chris Peed grew up hunting and fishing in Ohio and, by the time he was 12, he was able to use his own firearm after completing a hunter's safety course.

In this episode, Chris shares some of the common "past-times" and "sports" that he grew up participating in as a young boy. Like many children, he had been taught that certain animals were put on Earth for him to kill, and others for him to love. But, years later, after a life-changing phone call from his wife, Chris' world had completely changed.

121: Understanding Rett Syndrome

121: Understanding Rett Syndrome

Janelle Noble Donovan, creator of ANSHI, developed a product literally at her daughter Raegan's hospital bedside. Raegan has a genetic condition called Rett Syndrome and according to RettSyndrome.org, the unique postnatal neurological disorder is often misdiagnosed as autism, cerebral palsy or non-specific developmental delay.

Rett Syndrome is caused by mutations on the X Chromosome on a gene called MECP2. Common medical concerns may include, but are not limited to: epilepsy, disrupted sleep, orthopedic dysfunction, osteoporosis, spasticity, anxiety and/or early-onset puberty.

79: Wonder Woman is Real

Meet Victoria Ikerd-Schreiter. The gorgeous woman behind the character "Wonder Woman is Real". Aside from Cosplaying as the character Wonder Woman, Victoria is a real-life superhero every day! When she is not dressed up, she is a lawyer and advocate for children with disabilities. About a year ago, Victoria adopted a fully vegan lifestyle, not only because she felt she was living principled as Wonder Woman, but because her own son was suffering from terrible seizures which she helped reduce with a plant-based diet!
