Episode 141 – Shawn Doyle – Grief

Shawn Doyle (@Motiv8er on twitter) returns to discuss grief with host Craig Price. Grief can be a painful subject, awkward to address and difficult to understand. That’s why Craig thought Shawn and his new book “The Sun Still Rises: Surviving and Thriving After Grief and Loss” should come on the podcast. The two discuss the shocking and unexpected loss of Shawn’s first wife Cindy and how Shawn coped in the aftermath. Shawn offers up some suggestions to people trying to support those in grief, how grief is contextual and personal as well explains the path that allowed himself to find happiness.

Every day, many people lose loved ones and face the grieving process. They suffer while coping with the loss of a child, spouse, parent, friend, or sibling. It is perhaps the most difficult and devastating challenge any of us face in our lifetime. Shawn simply tries to offer his first hand experiences to others in hopes they to can heal.

Episode 127 – Barbara Dolan – Roller Derby

Barbara Dolan (@Derby_Lite on twitter) invites host Craig Price into her home to discuss roller derby. While in Chicago (birthplace of roller derby) this past spring, Craig couldn’t pass up a chance to sit down with the Queen B herself, Barbara Dolan to discuss the history of roller derby. They talk about the rules, what the positions are called and how Barbara has taken some of the fundamentals of roller derby and incorporated them into her fitness company Derby Lite where women of all ages practice the skills and drills of the sport of roller derby. While Craig remembers watching bits of roller derby on Saturday afternoons in the 70s and 80s, a resurgence in the past decade has really elevated to sport into not only a safer sport but something people can readily participate in. The two even figure out a cool derby name for Craig. 

At Derby Lite their Certified Instructors lead high energy Fitness Skating exercise classes for Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced skaters where ladies become healthier humans – physically and emotionally – as they learn to skate with a roller derby edge, no impact or competition. Each workout includes off-skates dynamic warm-ups, on-skates skills and drills, upper-body strength exercises and cool-down stretching. It’s a balanced, whole-body workout that’s never boring, shows progress week after week, and brings you into a welcoming community of women like no other. It’s fun, fitness and friends. But mostly fun.

Episode 110 – Dr. Craig Wiener – ADHD

Dr. Craig Wiener joins host Craig Price to discuss how to treat ADHD without medication. Treating attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder can be tough, especially if your not sure what the best way to treat it actually is. Many doctors just prescribe medication but that often become ineffective over time.
Dr. Wiener shows in his book “Parenting Children with ADHD”  how parents can promote cooperation by phrasing their requests in specific ways, reduce pressure on their child, and acknowledge the child’s preference as a way to make cooperation a more attractive choice to him or her. Parents learn to resolve problems related to messiness, inappropriate silliness and intrusiveness, chores and helping family members, coordinating schedules, sneaking and stealing, noise and yelling, and overreacting. Now all this parent talk makes Craig uncomfortable but the two Craig’s hash out how to address issues without resorting to violence (you can tell Craig has no kids by that statement alone) what’s the difference between a child with ADHD and just a troublemaking kid and why ADHD seems to be getting more widespread each year.
Craig Wiener can be found at http://www.craigwiener.com and his book “Parenting Children with ADHD: A No-Nonsense Guide for Nurturing Self-Reliance and Cooperation” can be found at Amazon.com

Episode 109 – Link Christin – Workplace Substance Abuse

Link Christin joins host Craig Price to discuss workplace substance abuse. Dealing with the workplace substance abuse of a co-worker is never easy. What is appropriate, when is it crossing the line from professional to personal, should you even get involved? Then there is the health and well being of the company as well. Is this person becoming less trustworthy, is their work slipping and hurting our clients? Link Christin comes to the podcast to discuss that and give a preview of his presentation (with co-presenter Jeffery Mangrum) “The Hero’s Journey: Timely Confrontation of Substance Abuse in Your Firm” they will deliver on Friday, November 1st at the Association of Legal Administrators Region 6 Conference in Reno, NV.
The two discuss how to approach the co-worker, how to bring it up to Human Resources, what kind of policies and programs should your company have in place to help and more importantly that a person in recovery is redeemable. This is a podcast no HR person should miss.
Link is the Adviser to Hazelden’s Legal Professionals Program in Center City, Minnesota and CEO of Heightened Performance LLC, a behavioral health consulting company for law firm and law schools. You can connect with him at schristin@hazelden.org

Episode 106 – Karen Kirkpatrick – Healthcare Reform

Karen Kirkpatrick (@comply4success on twitter) joins host Craig Price to discuss healthcare reform and the Affordable Care Act. With the ACA (or Obamacare for the the layperson) front and center in the news, causing government shutdowns and general confusion among the average American, it’s fortunate that last weekend’s Association of Legal Administration’s Region 4 Conference had Karen there to sort things out. Craig tries to figure out how companies are going to adjust, will the impact be that bad and what changes will hurt/help the most. Karen shows how compliance will be the most important part and that individuals looking for insurance need to shop around. Will Obamacare be another helpful government program or another example of government over-reach. That’s yet to be determined but lack of information should be an excuse. Head over to www.healthcare.gov to learn more about the new healthcare reforms.
Karen specializes in  HR and Benefit laws and her teaching style brings the legalese and government jargon to the audience in an easy/fun fashion. Her parent company Infinisource.com is always updating their newsroom with the latest information and updates http://newsroom.infinisource.com/

Episode 105 – Jill Foer Hirsch – Breast Cancer Awareness

Jill Foer Hirsch (@JillFoerHirsch on Twitter)  joins host Craig Price to talk about her fight with breast cancer. Cancer can be a pretty intimidating word, never mind a topic for a whole book. But a book about dealing with cancer in a funny way? Impossible!! Not to Jill who’s book “When Good Boobs Turn Bad: A Mammoir” shows that having cancer doesn’t mean losing your sense of humor. Craig and Jill discuss dealing with friends and family who don’t know how to deal with you and your illness, how to find a good doctor, saying NO to a doctor, guilting your friends into laughing at your jokes and why hats can be a lifesaver. She also turns lemons into lemonade when she realized that a new boob job is just what the doctor ordered!
Full disclosure –  I did read and then write a blurb for her book:
“An amusing handbook for many navigating the scary terrain of cancer, the author offers a blueprint to settle the fears of treatment and recovery. With a fun, sassy perspective, this book is a real gift for anyone starting their fight and hoping they don’t have to take everything so seriously!” — Craig Price, author of Half a Glass: The Realist’s Guide

Episode 103 – Anastasia Turchetta – Dental Health 2013

Anastasia Turchetta (@AnastasiaRDH on twitter) – America’s Dental Hygienist – makes her annual pilgrimage to join host Craig Price for a dental health check-up. America is failing in the oral hygiene department so Anastasia is on the case. The two talk about bleeding gums, soft toothbrushes vs. hard, why men need to get to the dentist more and new advances in anesthesia (not Anastasia)…all while fighting off aggressive hotel cleaning staff desperately trying to interrupt the podcast. Spoiler alert: They do! (Craig spends the intro ranting about it.)  Despite the fact that every meeting with Anastasia makes you feel self-conscious about your teeth, she is always a fun interview and this one is no different.

Nutritionist Charles Remington (@FLCCoach on Twitter) the Fat Loss Coach discusses weight loss with host Craig Price. Craig has had a long personal history with weight loss (you don’t get a body like his on just  frappachinos and doughnuts alone) but his understanding on what works can be down right murky.

Charles also explains why you need to change up your eating patterns and also answers several listeners questions!

Known to his thousands of clients as The Fat Loss Coach, his concepts on healthy weight loss are well embraced by the medical community and supported by a large insurance provider.
