Episode 56 - Jeff McNally

Jeff is an old friend of the podcast. He is a functional neurologist at Northwest Functional Neurology in the Portland, OR area. This past spring, he gave a very impressive talk at the Brain Injury Alliance of Oregon about the metabolic and immunologic consequences of TBI. Since nutrition, lifestyle, and the gut/immune interface is so close to my heart, his talk struck a chord. Enjoy! Michael

Mr. Kracke is a Portland based lawyer who currently works for the Center on Brain Injury Research and Training (CBIRT) as the Brain Injury Advocate coordinator after working as a personal Injury defense lawyer for brain injury survivors for nearly two decades.

Episode 53 - Lorita Cushman

Lorita may have the most complicated case I have seen. Fifteen years ago she was struck in the occipital bone of her skull by a heavy backpack that was swung like a medieval flail, and then immediately soccer kicked in the temple. Some of her struggles are her gastroparesis which makes it very difficult to eat well or her complex regional pain syndrome. Since 2008 she has been running a camping, rafting, and hiking trip for survivors and their families, and she offers it for only 25$. I hope you enjoy!

Episode 52 - Jessy Munch

Jessy crashed her bike while riding back in May of 2018. Although this may have caused some injury to the brain, far more damage was done when another biker behind her rode over her head (Jessy was wearing a helmet) with both tires of her bike. Amazingly, Jessy is back on her feet getting after it only 10 months later. We talk about how her social circles have changed since her accident, and how supportive her family has been. Her story starts at 13:44

Episode 51 - Heath Snyder

Heath Snyder has a lot of things going for him. He has six children who love him to death. Our conversation touches on many things, but most importantly we talk about how little credit humans give themselves. He (and I) both believe that we are far more capable than we give ourselves credit for. I hope you enjoy this rich conversation, and pull something good out of it. If you want to follow him on the gram: @collidedscopes Story starts right away.

Kahyra has had several TBI. In fact, she has had five concussions. All 5 have been while playing soccer. In the episode we talk about some of the scary moments after some of her TBI, the diet she uses to minimize her symptoms, and whether or not it is worth it to pursue a dream that involves risking a head injury. Enjoy! Her story starts at 10:31

Episode 48 - Jim Scott

Jim is a northeastern dude through and through. If his accent doesn’t give it away, his sense of humor will. In 2006, the night before the 4th of July, Jim decided to do some drinking with some friends and then drive home. Unfortunately, on his ride home, he crashed his car and ended up in the hospital for several months, remaining in a “eyes open” comatose state for several weeks as well. I hope you enjoy our conversation.

Episode 47 - Rik Lemoncello

Rik is a local Language and Speech Pathologist with a professorship at Pacific University. In addition to teaching, treating TBI survivors, and maintaining a social life, he also runs a bakery! What?! A bakery? Yes, pretty unique. A few years back he won an award at Pacific landing him a substantial amount of funds, which he decided to use towards a bakery, Sarah Bellums, in which people with TBI get to bake, clean, and do everything else a baker would do.
