Ep. 090 The Power of Fear with Diane Ray

we had numerous opportunities to meet each other over the course of the years, but we never did, not even when we worked for the same company, Hay House, but then again, she was coming in and I was going out. we got reintroduced through the podcast community and both of us decided it was time to have a conversation.

prior to this podcast we had one of two conversations over the phone and I shared with her my feeling that perhaps it was time for her to move from behind the curtain to in front of the curtain and so one of the things I was interested in talking to her about was whether she had gleaned any insights from talking to so many  of the leaders in the industry of self help around the topic of fear.

when i asked diane what she would like to say to people, she sent me a quote George Harrison and say ” All things must pass” ..we have been through wars, other pandemics and bad presidents. We will get through this as well. Just be kind to each other and remember we are all in this together.

I could tell you more but I think it better if you listen in to see what we talked about  . . .


she has been working in radio broadcasting for over 30 years since she first cracked the mic at age 19 at WSHE She’s Only Rock and Roll in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla for their Amateur Hour. She worked for most of my on-air radio career in the Miami market with stops in Austin, TX and San Diego, CA. You can view her complete resume here

For over a decade she has been working in digital media and online broadcasting as the Network Radio Manager/Producer atwww.hayhouseradio.com and Director of Programming for www.unityonlineradio.org since 2017. she launched her podcast Be Present: The Diane Ray Show with Unity Online Radio in August of 2018.

Ep 088 500 Lunch with 500 Strangers with Nick Bendel

By | Podcast

Jul 21, 2020

i don’t even know how Nick came across my awareness, but the minute I heard about what he was doing, something ignited in me. you see, i had been planning to take a trip around the world to sit with people who did not feel heard and listen to them. i wanted to hear what people would say if someone cared enough to listen to them. i wanted to sit on street corners, government offices, homeless shelters, placesI of worship, bookstores, cafes and truck stops. I wanted to visit strangers in hospitals and talk with CEO’s and entrepreneurs, sit with families and children in schools, i wanted to sit with the homeless and with people who had beautiful homes and ask them some questions and just listen to their answers.

but i was scared. my body had gotten older and it was carrying a lot of pain and i was no longer that 18 year old kid who hitchiked around the world’s was now a 65 year old man who was a whole lot less spontaneous than i wanted to admit i was and was looking for companies to sponsor my trip. i was looking for a car company to sponsor my vehicle and a hotel company to let me stay overnight in rooms that were not booked, or a train company that would be willing to let me ride across the country and speak with people on the trains. all great ideas, but what i realized is they were covering up my fear of getting out there and doing it.

so i made a decision, i would leave march 1,2020 no matter what.  in judaism they have a great saying, “Man plans and God laughs”.  weeks beforemy departure date, Coved -19 entered our collective lives and no one was going anywhere.

so when i heard about nick and hs mission to have 500 lunches with 500 strangers, i had to have him on the show and i had to do what he was doing. and thus i started 50 conversations with 50 strangers (o listen to those conversations, please go to my YouTube channel: to subscribe to my YouTube channel, please go here:

Ep 081 Loving Others Through Their Pain with Marlisse Hardamon

By | Podcast

Jun 12, 2020

Marlisse Hardamon

I would like to introduce myself, Lisa, a survivor. 

Yes, I was abused and suffered from the result of that abuse. Yes, I cried and I even tried to end my life, several times. I hated myself and everyone, else. I was bitter and angry. I lived in a place of darkness, it covered my soul. I drank and smoked, just to numb the pain. I lived in the world of victimization, unable to heal and forgive.

But, today I dance in the light of my life, not as a victim, but a victor.  I have learned to not only forgive my perpetrators but to forgive myself. I have learned to move past my pain, not by pretending it never happened, but by drawing strength from it, because it happened. I have been able to transform my life, using my pain as a platform to show women, how to live a transformed life, to move beyond their current situation into a place of wholeness, peace, and joy. I am not a victim, I did not let my life destroy me, it made me strong and taught me how to truly live life.

Purpose: I was placed here to allow my light to shine through adversity and trauma, so that I can be a beacon of light other who are in traumatic situations and that I can love them through their pain.

Ep 080 You Have to Breathe: Your Voice Matters with Joe Pryor

By | Podcast

Jun 7, 2020

Joe Pryor, is the author of Unlikely Destiny a book that has receive high regards from both celebrities and ordinary people. it is available wherever books are sold or on amazon.

A quote from Unlikely Destiny

“Have you ever really looked at yourself in the mirror? Have you ever asked yourself, “Why are you here?” Have you ever thought about your true purpose in life, or your Destiny? These are just a few of the questions I’ve asked you to think about, while reading Unlikely Destiny Volume One. The idea behind every question is to get you to think! To keep you always thinking outside the box. To think about every person you’ve met on your journey in life and why you invited them into your environment. The environment I speak about is YOU.”

Joe is a patented inventor, a former dedicated law enforcement officer and a security consultant to high profile celebrities and corporate executives.

Joe’ s FOCUS FORWARD mindset has translated his dreams into reality. In his book he shares his easy common-sense steps, that helped him overcome the odds to find personal and professional success through understanding his UNLIKELY DESTINY.

it is those odds again that we as a nation need to overcome if we will ever achieve our purpose to fulfil our Unlikely Destiny as a world nation.

If ever the country needed someone like Joe, it is now and so I invited Joe to be with me today to discuss race relations, growing up black in Watts/Compton, being a police officer and i wanted to lean upon his wisdom to hopefully share some insight as to where do we go from here.

Joe has decided to come and be with us today, on June 7th, his birthday and at the time of this recording the world is experiencing its 13th day of mostly peaceful protests and unrest in opposition to the public lynching of a black man by the knee of a white police officer as he repeatedly said “I can’t breathe.” while the nation watch and no one stood up to stop this murderer.

  • how hard it is to believe it is 2020 and we are still having this conversation
  • watching people die in Vietnam and the Gulf War and thinking that is not happening here, but living the reality of a black or brown person, it is happening here
  • I can’t breathe, one nation being held down by another
  • the advances of technology that made the truth finally irrefutable
  • seeing what he saw growing up, how in the world did he decide to be a police officer
  • deliberate acts vs mistakes or accidental behaviour
  • being an individual rather than being controlled by the crowd around you
  • standing up to those who are misusing their authority

  • why we don’t stand up to authority?
  • even in the highest branches of government we know what the leaders are doing is wrong and we try to stand up and get fired and lose our live. it happens in sports in business, in education. the police are the needle in the haystack.
  • the change that is happening now and where do we go from here
  • a deliberate action is not a mistake
  • when the 90% takes action, the importance of voting and putting leadership in check
  • what is different now than the protest of the 60’s

  • what is the human factor?
  • my shame in experiencing the White Flight Syndrome and systemic racism ad getting rid of the inherited bias of racism
  • my experience of being a minority of one in a room where the majority was black
  • if there ever is going to be change, someone has to do it.
