Susan Partovi MD

2/14/2024
Kathryn interviews Author Frank Forencich.In the popular imagination, activism is usually seen as an inconvenient, difficult, and stressful enterprise. But what if we’re wrong about all of that? Could activism actually make the human animal stronger? As the co-creator of an innovation organization Activism Is Medicine, Frank Forencich emphasizes the transformative power of activism as a remedy for building resilience, purpose, and overall health. He seeks to redefine activism not as a burden but as a gift that individuals can embrace for personal growth and positive societal change. He has been a featured speaker at prestigious events, including the Ancestral Health Symposium, Google, the Dr. Robert D. Conn Heart Conference, the Welsh Pain Society, and the Stanford University Institute of Design.Kathryn also interviews Author Susan Partovi MD.Dr. Susan Partovi first experienced poverty medicine volunteering at a dump site in Tijuana during high school. There, she recognized the need for all people to have access to quality medical care. Over the years, she has worked in various facilities around Los Angeles County, incorporating her renegade method of going the extra mile for her patients. As Medical Director of Homeless Health Care Los Angeles, she works to provide a safety net of care for the underserved Skid Row community. She started documenting her patients’ stories so that others could hear their voices. Along the way, she began to understand how her personal ethics evolved—from a challenging childhood and complicated relationships with her parents, through professional hurdles—often, she had to push against a system that doesn’t always put the patient first. She was dubbed the “Renegade MD” by Los Angeles Magazine for her unconventional tactics to earn the trust of her patients.

Kathryn interviews Author Mary Jordan.Many of us don’t realize there are things we can do to mitigate the risk of dementia. Whether you have a close relative with dementia, a history of high-risk factors for this condition, or a diagnosis of MCI (mild cognitive impairment), you may be concerned to know how personally 'at risk' you or a loved one is, and what you can do to 'dodge' what is definitely not inevitable.

Janet Sherlund

1/17/2024
Kathryn interviews Author Jennifer Hernandez.At just eight years old, Jennifer Hernandez encountered horrors typically found in fiction – discovering her home unlocked and vandalized, with the terrifying word Die painted in blood-red on her bedroom wall. This marked the beginning of her tumultuous journey through parental abandonment, unstable living conditions, early substance use, teen pregnancy, and a search for belonging within the inner-city gangs of Chicago. If she was capable of escaping the depths of trauma and self-loathing to a life of recovery, abundance, and joy, she believes anyone who is brave enough to help themselves can do the same. In her inspiring new memoir, she chronicles the complete transformation of her life, and how she found incredible success and happiness against all odds. Today she is in the top 1% of loan officers in the country with over 18 years invested in the mortgage industry, Top Woman Originator, and was #1 for FHA lending in Illinois.Kathryn also interviews Author Janet Sherlund.Like many adoptees of her generation, Janet Sherlund was born as the offspring of teenage parents. Her mother was forced to have her baby in secrecy. Sherlund would come to learn that her mother was unusual for her time. Not only did she not tell the father she was pregnant, she wanted nothing to do with her baby and never even looked at her newborn. All she had to go on when she began her search was a false narrative written about her biological parents by the adoption agency. In her memoir, she paints a vivid portrait of the detachment and longing of an adopted child and the lifelong quest to find her biological mother. It’s an unflinching examination of the grief and trauma caused by this primal separation and the dogged determination it takes to face the forces of opposition—both internal and external—to finally achieve answers. She has served on nonprofit boards in education, health and the cultural arts.

Kathryn interviews Author Cory Doctorow.It’s thirty years from now. We’re making progress, mitigating climate change, slowly but surely. But what about all the angry old people who can’t let go. For young Americans a generation from now, climate change isn't controversial. It's just an overwhelming fact of life. And so are the great efforts to contain and mitigate it. Even when national politics oscillates back to right-wing leaders, the momentum is too great, these vast programs cannot be stopped. But there are still those Americans, mostly elderly, who cling to their red baseball caps, their grievances, their huge vehicles, their anger and to their alternative news sources that reassure them that their resentment is right and pure and that climate change is just a giant scam. Author Cory Doctorow is an activist and journalist who was recently inducted into the Canadian Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame.Kathryn also interviews Author Barney Saltzberg.Going from two eyes to four isn't a bummer! In fact, it's a rich adventure. Just ask Arlo, a shaggy, free-spirited dog who loves to play catch – until one day, he can’t see the ball anymore. He needs glasses! Barney Saltzberg shows kids the amazing powers of glasses in this treasure of a book. Inspired by his own canine companion, every child in glasses will know just how Arlo feels and will feel better because of it. Readers will follow along with Arlo as he does all the big firsts involved in getting glasses—visit a doctor, get tested on an eye chart, look through the phoropter. And then the fun part—choosing frames! What should Arlo get? Movie star glasses? Superhero glasses? Classic frames that never go out of style? Saltzberg has written tunes for the PBS show Arthur and continues to perform music for children.

Barbara Feigin

1/3/2024
Kathryn interviews Author Lisa Goodpaster.Children raised by narcissistic parents tend to have low self-esteem, over-achieving tendencies, and/or self-sabotaging behaviors as adults due to the possessive, critical, and controlling nature of their parents. Pinpointing this mental disorder can be difficult as many parents may display some narcissistic qualities, however, recognizing the common themes among actual narcissistic mothers and fathers is vital. Lisa Goodpaster, parental alienation survivor and childhood trauma educator, can speak on how to identify a narcissistic parent and the detrimental effects they have on their children. She is the founder of The Stephood Project - a social awareness campaign addressing parental alienation and the danger of not co-parenting our kids. She is also a motivational speaker who helps families and professionals understand the complex issues that arise.Kathryn also interviews Author Barbara Feigin.In July 1940, Barbara Feigin was a two-year-old toddler when she fled with her parents from Nazi Germany. Risking their lives with only $10.50, the clothes on their backs, and what they could carry, and with no idea where they would settle and how they would make a life for themselves. Over seventy years later, she made an incredible discovery–her father had kept a journal of their escape from Nazi Germany. Her parents had rarely spoken of their escape and had never mentioned her father’s journal, and she remembered nothing of their passage. There had been a gaping hole in her family’s history, and her father’s journal would help to fill it. She shares a memoir of resilience, grit, and grace that starts with the entire text of her father’s journal, relating in his own words the terrifying details of the family’s escape. She graduated from Whitman College, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science, and completed a graduate program in business administration run jointly by Harvard Business School and Radcliffe Graduate School.

Kathryn interviews Author Lisa Goodpaster.Children raised by narcissistic parents tend to have low self-esteem, over-achieving tendencies, and/or self-sabotaging behaviors as adults due to the possessive, critical, and controlling nature of their parents. Pinpointing this mental disorder can be difficult as many parents may display some narcissistic qualities, however, recognizing the common themes among actual narcissistic mothers and fathers is vital. Lisa Goodpaster, parental alienation survivor and childhood trauma educator, can speak on how to identify a narcissistic parent and the detrimental effects they have on their children. She is the founder of The Stephood Project - a social awareness campaign addressing parental alienation and the danger of not co-parenting our kids. She is also a motivational speaker who helps families and professionals understand the complex issues that arise.Kathryn also interviews Author Barbara Feigin.In July 1940, Barbara Feigin was a two-year-old toddler when she fled with her parents from Nazi Germany. Risking their lives with only $10.50, the clothes on their backs, and what they could carry, and with no idea where they would settle and how they would make a life for themselves. Over seventy years later, she made an incredible discovery–her father had kept a journal of their escape from Nazi Germany. Her parents had rarely spoken of their escape and had never mentioned her father’s journal, and she remembered nothing of their passage. There had been a gaping hole in her family’s history, and her father’s journal would help to fill it. She shares a memoir of resilience, grit, and grace that starts with the entire text of her father’s journal, relating in his own words the terrifying details of the family’s escape. She graduated from Whitman College, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science, and completed a graduate program in business administration run jointly by Harvard Business School and Radcliffe Graduate School.
