Episode 55 - Bryce Weiler’s Vision!

December 18, 2019

Despite his efforts, Bryce Weiler can’t escape the “stigma” associated with being inspirational. Bryce was born blind, but has found his way through life, in part, by asking for help. He’s now asking individuals and organizations to help The Beautiful Lives Foundation so that disabled people can share in the performing arts.

Charlie Brignak joined us as well. As one might expect, Bryce has inspired Charlie too!

Thank you for your vision Bryce and good luck!

Episode 54 - Elias “Lefty” Caress, Presto!

December 10, 2019

Utah magician Elias "Lefty" Caress joined me in the studio. We quickly established that he was a "good magician", and not a bad one! Lefty left his career in banking and started doing magic at the ripe old age of 25. He trained with my legendary cousin, Jeff (Magnus) McBride, at the McBride Magic and Mystery School in Las Vegas. We had a great conversation, . . . but I was disappointed I didn't find any money in my pocket after the show. And, . . . come to think of it, he didn't even offer to convert my $1 bills into $10 bills. Hmm, . . . on reflection . . .  

Lauren Brill, co-founder of The Unsealed, joined us for the second hour. The Unsealed is a movement that encourages people to see the world through diverse perspectives, creating more compassion and unity among us. Happy Birthday Lauren and thanks for sharing your great stories. Unlike Lefty, there's no second-guessing your character.

Episode 53 - #OO, Greg Ostertag

December 3, 2019

I visit with Utah Jazz legend Greg Ostertag from his home in rural Texas. Greg talks openly about playing alongside Stockton/Malone and relying too heavily on his God-given talents (7'2", 280 lbs.) alone.  Greg shares some great memories, as well as a few regrets, before he had to go ref a J.V. game, restore a few historic buildings and feed his chickens. Sounds like a good life.

Thanks for sharing your lessons from the game Greg!
