The Ivy League Terrorist
I didn't know what to expect.  It isn't every day that one gets to sit down and talk with a  former recruiter for Al-Qaeda and ISIS.  What led him down that path; why did he ultimately leave that life; what is he doing now to make amends, if one can make amends for such heinous acts committed; and perhaps most important, what can we learn from him to protect ourselves, our loved ones and our nation?The answers to these questions and more are revealed in this timely interview with Jesse Morton, a one-time suburban kid who became, in his words, The Ivy League Terrorist.   The conversation I had with him just five days before this 18th anniversary of 9/11, is part of a larger project Lorelle Media is producing about how to counter violent extremism.  Morton's chilling words about the divisiveness gripping our nation, and its connection to terrorist strategy, will stop you in your tracks.  At least I hope it will.    Support the show
Healthcare & the Divide
 “We are paying for the Care, not the Health.”  And that’s the problem, says Elena Marks, President and CEO of Episcopal Health Foundation.  In just about every poll that asks what Americans most care about when deciding who will get our vote, healthcare is at or near the top of the list.  It will most certainly be a major topic during next week’s Democratic Presidential debate here in Houston.  Although no one can argue that we don’t all need care to keep us healthy and able to live productive lives, howwe get there remains the source of bitter, partisan debate both inside and outside the halls of Congress.  The question is, what is the consequence of that divide when people’s lives literally hang in the balance.  Our guest in this week’s episode of Our Voices Matter has some striking insights to share from the trenches on behalf of those whose voices too often remain in the shadows.Support the show
Red Zone
“America is in the redzone.  The question is, do we know it.”  You don’t have to know football to understand what SpencerTillman is talking about, or his perspective on how we as a nation get into the end zone.   He wears a SuperBowl ring from his days as a running back with the San Francisco 49ers, he sits in the OrangeBowl Hall of Fame and he’s a college football game analyst for FOXSports.  He’s also thoughtful, insightful, engaged in the community and deeply patriotic.  I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed sitting down with my former broadcast colleague for a conversation that takes us both on an unexpectedly emotional journey.  You’re invited to come along for the ride.Support the show
