SEASON 5 premiere!

Doug Hughes is a retired mailman living on the Gulf Coast of Florida. In previous jobs, he’s been a restaurant manager, computer programmer, and he’s held a few dozen other jobs from mopping hospital floors to driving for Uber.

He made a daring and unauthorized flight in a 250-pound ultralight gyrocopter with 535 letters, one to every member of Congress, landing on the west lawn of the US Capitol Building in 2015. After proving his dedication, he demonstrated his expertise on the crisis of institutional corruption in dozens of media appearances and speaking engagements. The flight earned Doug four months in prison, it also cost him his job with the U.S. Postal Service and the gyroplane, a deal he does not regret.

Doug is an activist, especially but not exclusively on big money in politics, speaking, demonstrating, and writing on the subject whenever an audience will tolerate him.

In this episode I speak with EFT practitioner Ann Hince. She tells me about growing up with trauma, dysfunction and a lingering PTSD that would take decades to release. She talks to me about how using EFT changed her life and how she now uses these techniques to help those people who really want inner change, inner peace, have the desire and will to do the inner work to achieve it.

In this episode I talk with Donny "Mad Beard" Zuzula of the Michigan based punk trio The Tosspints. As Tom Trauma from PunkNews.org put it; “He writes unbelievably confident sounding songs about his lack of confidence. The music and lyrics are the voice for the words he is unable to speak. It’s so emotionally raw that it might make a squeamish listener turn away”. The same could be said for this conversation, Donny is willing to go wherever the conversation leads. He tells me about his experiences as a disabled war veteran and the life changing event of getting his service dog.
