Duque's Story: Cold Water on a Hot Day OR How to survive a Mexican Shootout
Certain risks come with working private security in Mexico... for example, people coming to your home to kidnap you and your family.  Not only did Duque survive the ensuing fire-fight, he also managed to leave that world behind him... and now enjoys the simple thing in life.... like making tacos while he's being interviewed.

The Dating Zombie
In this episode, Grace tells (part of) her own survival story.  This episode deals with abuse, addiction... zombies... you know- all the horrifying stuff. Another morbidly uplifting podcast!

Caedmon's Story- 75 Tootsie Rolls
It's never great when someone incorrectly thinks you're a racist, it's another thing entirely when someone tries to kill you because they incorrectly think you're a racist.

Chris's Story part 2- After the war comes the battle
Chris survived two years of hell serving in the Marine Corps, but his fight was only just starting. Coming home to serve as a sheriff's deputy in his hometown, he began to realize that surviving the initial trauma of his military service was nothing compared to the PTSD that followed.  Listen to his story of struggle, disgrace and redemption

Chris's Story- It Only Took 17 f*&^ing Years
Part 1 of 2! Everyone has heard of PTSD as it applies to soldiers who have faced combat- but that's not Chris's story.  Even though he saw combat, Chris's PTSD came from perhaps the most unlikely place: his peers. Part 1 is surviving the trauma itself. Part 2 is navigating the world after the fact- hence the POST in PTSD. Sometimes the bravest thing you can do... is admit that you're a goddamn mess.

Molly's Story- Keys, Wallets and Teeth
Molly and her friend were walking home from a night out in Asheville, North Carolina, when a stranger with a gun changed her life forever.  He may have broken her nose (along with a few other things) but he sure as hell didn't break her spirit.
