Guest Info/Bio: This week I welcome David Zach. David Zach is the lead singer and songwriter for the rock band Remedy Drive as well as an advocate in the fight against human trafficking. The band has recorded two concept albums to shine a light on slavery and to celebrate the modern day abolition. The band's community and fan base has contributed around $350,000 in donations and in-kind donations to the counter trafficking organization The Exodus Road. When the band is not on tour David volunteers with The Exodus Road as an undercover operative. He spends time in brothels and in the red-light districts where underage girls and boys are sold by the hour. His role while undercover is to identify instances of minors being sold, and to capture actionable evidence of their trafficking using covert gear, some of which is funded by the Remedy Drive community and fan base. Upon returning from deployment overseas David uses the band and his platform to advocate for the victims of human trafficking, to shine a light on slavery and to speak about his time overseas with the goal of recruiting and funding the fight which is the modern underground railroad. He has spoken at many of the major festivals during talkback sessions, main stages and seminar tents. He also speaks at colleges, conferences, high school campuses and churches. David's message centers upon a core belief of both Remedy Drive and The Exodus Road - "Justice is in the hands of the ordinary". To hear about raids/rescues and everything going on the front lines text “remedy” to 51555.

Guest Info/BIo: We’re back! This episode should have been out a couple of weeks ago but despite sheltering in place, working from home, having all of my groceries delivered, and only having contact with my ex-wife and daughter - I (John) still managed to get Covid. Fortunately I was able to recover at home and didn’t need to go to the hospital, but it took me out of commission for a few weeks. Be careful out there! Anyway, here is part 2 of the Divorce Series. This episode means a lot to me because I was able to talk to two of my friends about their first-hand experiences with divorce. The first half of this episode is a conversation with Chelsea Meyer who just got remarried recently and is now a clinical mental health counselor. The second half of the episode is with Ryan Wilkins the co-owner/co-founder of Olentangy River Brewing and the Senior Director, Communications & Facilities at the Ronald McDonald House. I pray that for those of you who need it that this is helpful. Special Music By: Ryan Wilkins Enjoy the music?
