Flint's Poisoned Water: An American Tragedy

September 13, 2021

Michigan investigative journalist Anna Clark, author of The Poisoned City, the definitive book on the lead contamination crisis in Flint, Michigan.

Through the Dark: Finding Joy After Sudden Blindness

September 7, 2021

Can you imagine suddenly losing your sight in the prime of your life? That's exactly what happened to Yolanda Nava, a successful, multi-lingual, Latina broadcast journalist who learned how to reclaim her joy and recreate her life after what she describes as "the death of my old self." Her new book, THROUGH THE DARK, and this conversation with Anne are full of wisdom and inspiration about the resiliency of the human spirit and the power each of us holds within to continuously grow, even through traumatic, life-changing experiences. 

Healing from Sexual Assault; There is No Time Limit

August 30, 2021

The crisis of sexual assault is not limited to USA gymnastics. One in six women and one in 30 men experience sexual assault in their lifetimes. Nor is it new; it has been going on for centuries. And the trauma of sexual assault, often committed by someone the victim knew, scars a human spirit for decades. Guests Trinea Gonczar, a former gymnast who was "treated" for years by imprisoned predator Dr. Larry Nasser, and Kimberly Hurst, Founder and Executive Director of the Avalon Healing Center, are courageous advocates for victims and "sister survivor" experts in what it takes for suffering individuals to truly heal and the leadership required, as demonstrated recently by Simon Biles, for complacent cultural attitudes to change.
