Maysoon Zayid repeated it twice in our interview, “Just try it,”  Just try it,”  and try it she has.  If Maysoon finds a door in her life she metaphorically kicks out a window and knows how to get herself through it.  While she doesn’t want to be anyone’s inspiration she feels happy for anyone who is able to accomplish anything because of something she may have said.  I found her unstoppable, admirable, and a woman to listen to.  She has appeared on Comedy Central’s The Watch List, PBS’s America at a Crossroads, CNN, HBO, MTV, and 20/20.  She was named one of the 21 Leaders of the 21st Century by Women’s ENews, and a 2013 honoree of United Cerebral Palsy NYC’s Women Who Care Awards and those are only two of the honors that this inimitable woman has received.

When you think of bikers you might think of gangs, thugs, and tattoos.  John Paul Lilly has changed all of that.  He is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is also known as the Chief.  In 1995 he founded an organization known as Bikers Against Child Abuse (BACA).  They put that reputation for toughness to work but only in the service of the greater good.   These BACA bikers are known to many as the guardians.   They are guardians for the children.  They patiently sit outside the homes of children who have been hurt, abused or molested.  They also ride with them to their court appearances, providing solace, support, protection, and more.  This podcast explores how the Chief overcame his own fear to find a family much like the organization he founded.  Come meet the Chief.  You won’t be the same after you do.  Join the ride.

In 2008, Heather Dorniden was leading the pack in the final heat of a 600-meter race at the Big Ten Indoor Track Championships.  With 200 meters of the race to go Heather tripped and fell landing hard flat on her face.  Instead of throwing in the towel, she jumped back up, sprinted around the track and won the race.  She is currently on Team USA with her sights set on the next world Olympics.
