35: THE Dr. Shefali: Conscious Parenting

August 25, 2017
00:0000:00
Conscious Parenting. I have never been so moved by "advice" on parenting as from Dr. Shefali Tsabary (Best known as "Dr. Shefali"). I put "advice" in quotes, because her WORK transcends beyond advice. The word advice is inadequate for the ground-breaking and life-changing work she does.

32: David Garrow: Barack Obama and Pulitzer-Prize Winning

August 11, 2017
00:0000:00

Making Barack Obama, the High Court, and more. Meredith geeks out a little about favorite Supreme Court justices with historian and author, David Garrow. In this captivating epsisode covering Obama, Roe v. Wade and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Meredith and David really dig into some interesting legal and political topics.

In his book, Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama, Pulitzer-Prize winner David Garrow addresses how Barack Obama's speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention instantly catapulted him into the national spotlight and led to his election four years later as America's first African-American president. 

About David Garrow

Book: https://www.amazon.com/Rising-Star-Making-Barack-Obama/dp/0062641832 
Web: http://www.davidgarrow.com/

The Book: Rising Star

Rising Star is the definitive account of Barack Obama's formative years that made him the man who became the forty-fourth president of the United States—from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Bearing the Cross.

Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama captivatingly describes Barack Obama's tumultuous upbringing as a young black man attending an almost-all-white, elite private school in Honolulu while being raised almost exclusively by his white grandparents. After recounting Obama's college years in California and New York, Garrow charts Obama's time as a Chicago community organizer, working in some of the city's roughest neighborhoods; his years at the top of his Harvard Law School class; and his return to Chicago, where Obama honed his skills as a hard-knuckled politician, first in the state legislature and then as a candidate for the United States Senate.

Detailing a scintillating, behind-the-scenes account of Obama's 2004 speech, a moment that labeled him the Democratic Party's "rising star," Garrow also chronicles Obama's four years in the Senate, weighing his stands on various issues against positions he had taken years earlier, and recounts his thrilling run for the White House in 2008.

In Rising Star, David J. Garrow has created a vivid portrait that reveals not only the people and forces that shaped the future president but also the ways in which he used those influences to serve his larger aspirations. This is a gripping read about a young man born into uncommon family circumstances, whose faith in his own talents came face-to-face with fantastic ambitions and a desire to do good in the world. Most important, Rising Star is an extraordinary work of biography—tremendous in its research and storytelling, and brilliant in its analysis of the all-too-human struggles of one of the most fascinating politicians of our time.

13: BethAnn Telford: Brain Cancer and Beyond

May 13, 2017
00:0000:00

Brain Cancer. Wow. BethAnn Telford, in 2004, while running the Marine Corps Marathon, she felt a “pop” in her head around mile marker nineteen and over the next couple of months started to experience problems with her balance and unclear thoughts.

After several weeks of tests in the early winter of 2005, she learned she had a brain tumor and that her life would forever be changed. In April of 2005, she had her first brain surgery and had to learn to walk, talk, and move all over again. As her rehabilitation began, she was determined to run again. Six weeks later she ran her first 5K race and trained throughout the summer to run and finish the Marine Corps Marathon. Stopping at mile marker nineteen to say reflect on her journey and to silently thank her doctors, family and friends that have supported her during her struggles.

Since then, BethAnn has undergone a second brain surgery, a nuerostimulator implant and bladder augmentation surgery for issues related to her brain cancer. Through it all, Beth has competed and finished Boston Marathons (six (6) times), Marine Corp Marathons (thirteen (13) times), the Lake Placid Ironman (twice (2)), the Kona Ironman World Championships (in 2012), and Crossing the Canyon (a 9 hour rim-to-rim trek of the Grand Canyon). She has currently completed an epic adventure in January 2017, the World Marathon Challenge, which consists of running 7 marathons on 7 continents in 7 days.

In addition to her pushing her physical boundaries, BethAnn has dedicated herself to helping raise awareness of brain cancer and toward finding a cure. BethAnn founded Team BT as part of the Race for Hope - DC 5K Run/Walk and has helped raise more than $800,000 for brain cancer research. She has participated in countless charity and fund raising events, including rappelling down the side of a skyscraper as part of an ABC2 event to help raise awareness and funds for brain cancer research. In addition to fund raising, BethAnn has testified before an FDA committee on the benefits of advance drug therapies, advocated through lobbying Congress, and advocated as part of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and White House briefing since the fall of 2014. She has also had two (2) NBTS grants awarded to the Cleveland Clinic and the University of Florida in her name and been awarded the Triumph of Spirit award. She has also been featured in countless articles, news stories including the front page of the Washington Post, and has been featured in a Discovery Program documentary.

ABC2 breaks through the boundaries of academia, nonprofits, industries and other research fields to find the cure. To reach new treatments faster, we're helping our partners connect, learning from our failures and sharing one another's successes.

As venture philanthropists, we “buy down the risk” for researchers to connect with the companies that can develop new patient treatments. We have to push more research through that drug development “Valley of Death” before we can start learning from results — from successes and failures.

By challenging long-held attitudes about brain cancer research, we’re charting a more direct course towards the cure.

12: Audrey Sanchez: Balanced (Part II)

May 5, 2017
00:0000:00

Following the health primer with Dr. Michael Greger (Part I), I talk with Audrey Sanchez, the Executive Director of the new non-profit: BALANCED.

Balanced is a nonprofit aimed at making healthy food more accessible in workplaces, schools, hospitals, universities, and retail spaces across the country. Formed in collaboration with leading nutrition expert, Best-Selling author, and founder of NutritionFacts.org, Dr. Michael Greger, Balanced was created to help end the ongoing public health crisis that is associated with the overconsumption of unhealthy foods.

“As a mom, I know first-hand the challenges associated with finding healthy foods. The inspiration behind Balanced is simply the belief that it shouldn’t be as hard as it is to feed our families well,” Balanced Executive Director, Audrey Sanchez said. “Making healthier options more accessible in workplaces, schools, health care facilities, and universities is something I take very seriously. Given their scale, major food companies and institutions have the ability—and responsibility—to make simple but meaningful changes that will make it easier for our families to stay healthy. It’s time they stop serving foods that have such a negative impact on our health, and instead, serve more foods that reflect the best available nutrition evidence.”

Unique in its approach, Balanced's efforts focus on campaigning for alternatives to the unhealthy foods served by major food companies. Balanced’s goal of mobilizing consumers to demand these changes sets it apart. Balanced is calling on these food companies to reduce the amount of meat and foods high in cholesterol, saturated fats, and carcinogens they serve and increase health-promoting foods such as grains, beans, fruits, and vegetables.

Echoing Sanchez’s sentiments, Dr. Greger had this to say, “The science is clear. The research has shown, time and again, that diets high in meat are associated with increased risk of a variety of our leading killer diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, certain types of cancers, and premature death in general. One of the most significant ways a person can impact their overall health is to instead maximize their intake of whole healthy plant foods.”

Get Involved with BALANCED:

"Healthy food is a RIGHT, and we are going to FIGHT for it. For too long, too many major food corporations have prioritized their profits over our health. They’ve ignored federal dietary guidelines and the best nutrition evidence, and our families have paid the price—with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and premature death.

"These companies have created a public health crisis and blamed it on us, just like big tobacco did two generations ago. Like big tobacco, they’ve called consumer health an individual choice—not a corporate responsibility. The truth is, we’ve been set up to fail. When cafeterias, restaurants, and grocery aisles are overstocked with disease-causing foods, when major food corporations are promoting these products at every turn and piling them high on our plates, how much choice do we really have?"

Enough is enough: "TOGETHER, WE WILL HOLD MAJOR FOOD CORPORATIONS ACCOUNTABLE FOR BRINGING BALANCE TO CAFETERIAS, MENUS AND STORE SHELVES."

2: Anna Woods: sheSTRENGTH

April 21, 2017
00:0000:00

An interview with the amazing Anna Woods.  

"I am a wife and mom of 3.  My kids are 10, 7, and 6.  We have 2 girls and a boy. We adopted my son, who rocks an extra chromosome in 2011 from Ukraine, through Reece's Rainbow.  My online training with adults with special needs changed my world so much that it lead us to the adoption of a child with special needs. Shortly after adopting him, my oldest daughter was diagnosed with high-function asperger's, sensory processing disorder and anxiety.  Which leads me to my passion for home fitness.  I have always been an athlete and after tearing my ACL my last year of college softball I had to learn how to "train for life," and not train for whatever my coach told me we should do. And first that was physical therapy...from there I attended a Strong Women's conference and learned about the amazing affects strength training could have on the elderly and frail adult woman..and my life was changed! I changed my degree to Exercise Science from Art...and the rest is history. 

"I opened my own fitness business online and in my basement in 2007, after we moved to rural Kansas.  I had worked in a gym setting all through college and after but knew I wanted to stay home with my kids more than anything, so entrepreneurship was the only way I saw to do it all.  That lead to working in retirement communities teaching my strength training programs I designed and that lead to working with adults with special needs in their homes and day service provider's.  And eventually I, myself, got into CrossFit, powerlifting, olympic lifting, and built my own garage gym from scratch metal, buy sell, trade sites, Craig's list, and garage sales.  I started competing heavily in this region and was winning alot.  But people couldn't believe I trained at home by myself...so they dubbed me the name "home gym." And it stuck.  People didn't know the struggles I had to deal with at home, relating to stress with a husband who worked crazy hours leaving me a single mom most days and nights...dealing with out of control behavior's with asperger's, and physical and emotional struggles with a child who spent his first 2 year's in an orphanage.  I NEEDED to workout. I NEEDED something just for me.  And I HAD to workout at home when I could find time.  Or needed an escape.  My workouts became so much more for me than a quest for a banging bod.  

"And I began to form this concept in my head of empowerment.  That we have to give ourselves permission to take time for us.  That we have to make ourselves a priority.  And that we need accountability to that.  And in all of my 14 years of working in this industry I had never seen such a promotion or product.  So I made my own: sheSTRENGTH.

"A journey to empowerment. Mindset training.  Community. Vulnerability.  Strength.  Belief.  Courage.  And so much more.  But I want women to know its okay to want more for themselves in life. 

"And so that is my mission now.  To help women find their sheSTRENGTH.  Most usually the unlikely athletes, who don't feel they deserve to feel and look better, who are so far lost in their lives, kids, family, and needs of others they have lost sight of who they are and what they love."

1: Gerry Halphen: Heart Rate Training

April 21, 2017
00:0000:00

Heart rate and such. Have Heart! Meredith Atwood sits down with Gerry Halphen in her first solo podcast. Gerry Halphen is an IRONMAN athlete (IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 World Championship qualifier and competitor), coach, catalyst, life-changer and friend to talk about the burning (or should we say “beating”) question: “Why do we REALLY care about heart rate training?” 

Gerry was the man behind the infamous “Spark” that changed Meredith A’s life back in 2009.  A heart-warming episode with a good soul, it’s always a joy to tell old tales, think about new goals and keep things real with the Coach Formerly known as “Coach Monster.”

Show Highlights
In this episode, Gerry and Meredith A. discuss:

- what heart rate training really is and what's the point of it

- how does this impact new athletes

- how does going SLOWER actually make you FASTER

- what Kind of TIME FRAME does heart rate adaptation take 

- why we MUST incorporate the other end of the training zone (anaerobic)

- the best way(s) to determine your HR zones:

  • Inexpensive and non-testing way.
    Generic 220-age (Max HR), then percentage of that sets zones
    Example, a 33 year old female... would be 187, then: 
    Zone 1: 112-130 (60-70%)
    Zone 2:  131-149 (70-80%)
    Zone 3:  150-168 (80-90%)
    Zone 4:  169-177 (90-95%)
  • Field Testing / Resource:
