Fighting Breast Cancer: The Annapolis Dragon Boat Club (E-116)

Louise Kirk and Chandra Jackson are warriors!

Both of them are breast cancer survivors (Louise, 5 years and Chandra for 15) and both of them paddle with the Annapolis Dragon Boat Club!

In this episode (John thinks it is one of the most powerful episodes) we talk about sobering statistics (1 in 8 women will be affected). We discuss why African American women are more likely to die from it. And we talk about paddling and how it helps men and women recover.

But the Annapolis Dragon Boat Club is a lot more than helping survivors rebuild their strength. It’s about community, camaraderie, family, and surviving!

We purposely missed Breast Cancer Awareness month by a day — we should be aware of it every month–not just October!

Come along with us for a dragon boat ride for the next 50 minutes and see if you don’t agree–one of the most powerful episodes!

So, Just What Is This Place Called The Commons? (E-114)

People ask us all the time about where we record.  Sometimes it is at a guest’s home or office, sometimes at our homes, sometimes out at a bar, but most of the time it is at The Commons!

While we do not need an office, there are many times when recoding at home is not practical. The Commons answered that call. It is a shared workspace with a great (sometimes echo-y) conference room located in the heart of downtown.  If you are looking for a place to call your work-home for a few hours a month, a few days a month, or forever–check them out.

ELI5–Just what does Wes Adams do as a State’s Attorney? (E-113)

Yes we know there is an election year going on. Yes we know that Wes Adams and Anne Colt Leitess are both vying for the office. But we were curious–just what does a State’s Attorney do?

It’s a race that many may not completely understand and in that vein, we decided to ask Adams exactly what it is that his office does. The only ground rule we had was no politicking!  Taking a cue from Reddit, we had him explain like I was five (ELI5)..which is not too far of a stretch!

Anyhow, sit back and have a listen and learn a bunch, just as we did.
