Episode 21 – Boris Boric Interview, Part 2

ELast week we heard my friend Boris tell of being caught in the crossfire between Serbian and Croatian troops and then being separated from his family and forced to fend for himself for three days at the age of six. We heard tell of other older refugees he knew who succumbed to the stress and killed themselves and others in front of him. Thank you for listening to this week’s broadcast. We look forward to joining you here again next week and hope you are enjoying this journey.

Episode 20 – Boris Boric Interview, Part 1

EI am inspired almost daily by people I meet such as The 70 year-old with the boot brace who chooses to take the stairs when the 18-year-old “aspiring” basketball player takes the elevator, or the amputee veteran telling jokes and uplifting those with fewer physical challenges or the 90-year-old being put through the paces by her personal trainer while she is surrounded by folks texting on their phones never breaking a sweat. But occasionally we are lucky enough to meet someone so amazing as to defy explanation. My friend Boris is that person for me. What follows is part one of our first Honestly Speaking Adversity segment where we’ll hear him tell of not one, but two death defying experiences the first of which beginning at age six. I hope you gain as much from hearing his story as I did. Thank you for allowing me to share the first part of this amazing young man’s story. Please join us next week when we hear about the unexpected tragedy that led to him spending his 25th birthda...

Episode 19 – Dr. Ming Wang MD, PHD Author of From Darkness to Sight

EThis week on Honestly Dawn we have another interview originally broadcast on the old Honestly Speaking Podcast. In this episode, Dawn talks to Dr. Ming Wang, world-renowned eye surgeon and author of From Darkness to Sight.

Episode 14 – The Power and Pain of Social Media

EWelcome to Honestly Dawn episode 14. I'm Dawn here again with my fabulous co-host Hector to talk about social media. We had some technical difficulties so a couple small slices of the discussion were edited out. One of the things we talked about was the concept of social ranking and how it affects our lives. We referenced both a fictional and a real life representation. The fictional is shown in Season 3, Episode 1 of Black Mirror.

Episode 12 – Being White – Racism, Part 3

EIn this final to our three-part series, Dawn describes her personal journey and asks the question of Ahmed what now? When I was in elementary and middle school I lived in Indianapolis, Indiana. During the years that spanned Kindergarten through 6th grade I only remember one black student. There may have been others, but they didn’t live in my neighborhood and I didn’t interact with them. After my parents divorced I moved to Florida and briefly attended the very small private school associated with my grandparents church. There were no black students there either. About the time I was starting high school my grandparents bought a farm in the rural areas of Tallahassee. The middle school bus that picked up my brother drove toward town and the more affluent neighborhoods. The bus that transported me headed the other direction toward the poorer mostly black community. There were only three white students on my bus. I was the first picked up and so had the longest ride every day. Next ...
