The creator of Comedy Central, former President of Court TV, and author of Constant Comedy: How I Started Comedy Central and Lost My Sense of Humor, Art Bell joins us this week on the Shadows Podcast! While working at HBO, Art Bell had an idea for a 24/7 all-comedy channel. He pitched the idea to the head of programming and was told, “It’s the worst idea I’ve ever heard.” He didn’t let the rejection crush his dream. That idea eventually became known as Comedy Central. Art talks about his upbringing, why humor is essential in every aspect of life, his jobs at CBS, HBO, creating the Comedy Channel, the merger with Ha! to create Comedy Central, his time as President of Court TV, and his book, Constant Comedy.

On this Black Friday edition of Rise From The Shadows, we welcome Scott Mason back to the Shadows! During this episode, Scott tells the story of listening to Leroy Garvin playing the harp at his mother's church every fourth Sunday while singing "A Motherless Child." That song resonated with him as an adopted child. Scott discusses his journey from being born in England as Calvin Fronz Crowdey to being adopted by an African-American family and moving to Kansas. He struggled to come to terms with not being wanted by his family and was raised in an environment that opposed his destiny. He often wondered what his life would be like if he were still Calvin. When he was 12-years old and his family was on vacation in Denver, he walked into a bookstore, and a cover spoke to him. It was D'Aularies' Greek Myths. The theme of heroes rising from adoption wasn't uncommon in this book, and he could relate to Percious and Moses. This book gave him a sense of hope that allowed him to face the monsters that he would eventually have to slay in life and was able to overcome his shadows. Scott also encourages us to find our personal avatar through Greek Mythology.

Episode 6 of Rise From The Shadows: Behind the Mask is now available at https://linktr.ee/shadowspodcast or www.theshadowspodcast.com. Every day we interact with other people's masked versions of ourselves. Most people have a select few that they allow to unmask them. Often, our biggest struggle isn't understanding others, but it's trying to figure out who we are. When we pull off our masks and do some soul searching, it's scary and frightening, but it can also be grateful and rewarding. This week our first guest is a Senior Non-commissioned Officer in the United States Air Force and a Life and Executive Coach, Demetrius Booth. He starts our episode by reflecting on the meaning behind the word empowerment. His job as a Chief Master Sergeant in the United States Air Force is to "empower people," but he's never had to use that phrase. Instead, he says it with his CHESS. He walks us through his acronym, CHESS, which stands for Change, Help, Encourage, Support, and Strengthen. Instead of empowering individuals, he enables self-growth and autonomy on their journey. Demetrius Booth on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/demetrius-booth-0b0281154/ Our second guest this week is the Beyond the Rut Podcast host, Jerry Dugan. Jerry is here to talk to us about aligning and improving in the areas of our faith, fitness, family, finances, and future possibilities. Life hasn't always been a smooth road for Jerry, and he takes us back to his childhood, his experience with his parent's divorce, and how he and his younger brother had to prevent his father from taking his own life. Jerry's family had a bleak outlook on life, but Jerry wanted more. He started visualizing a better life which consisted of the 5 F's. He created a vision of life for himself. Jerry gets you asking yourself, "What does success look like for you?" Beyond The Rut Podcast – https://beyondtherut.com/ Have you ordered the Shadows Podcast Coffee yet?
