I sure do love a crazy, inspiring story. My guest Shelene Bryan absolutely brings it! Shelene left her successful Hollywood career as a producer, actress and writer and devoted her life to a philanthropic cause on the other side of the planet.

And that's great...Not that it's a contest, but what Shelene chose...

His successful Everest summits came at 67 and 72 years of age! This makes him the oldest living American to...

Listen, I smoked weed a couple times in high school, got the spins and puked, or ate an entire bag of Doritos and fell asleep...Uh...Neither of which outcomes are anything I would ever aspire to achieve. Needless to say, that marked a quick end to that era. Fast forward...
