Death is often seen as this big scary thing that no one wants to talk about or face, but the peace people experience in their final moments is far greater than most people may believe and talking about it is something we should all get more comfortable with. Ryan tells about the different situations in ...

Many struggle today with the pressures of society or their own community and when they don’t live up to the community standards, ...

I talked to my uncle today and he told me the story of his father who passed not too long ago and the confusing relationship they shared. It’s a story much like the prodigal son but kind of in reverse where the dad leaves the family due to many contributing factors which we will get into that were frustrating, outlandish, and sometimes silly but caused his son and family or I should say families to believe that he was a bad man. On...

Today I talk to Jesse Angeles, who tells me about his good friend he had in high school named Natalie who tragically passed away. She was a seemingly normal girl who got along with everybody and you’d never expect her to be struggling in such a way, but when she passed, Jesse and many of her loved ones realized things weren’t as they seemed. She became reclusive and withdrawn for a little while before her death and actually was str...

In this episode I explain who I am, my journey and experience with cancer, and why I started this podcast. Some time ago, my grandpa, or Papa, who was very involved in my life and more like a dad to me, passed away.
