Episode 24: Eddy Rodriguez Walked From Florida to DC Spreading Happiness
Throughout his life, Eddy faced overwhelming challenges and met each one head-on and came out the victor. At age 48 Eddy’s business partner mismanaged his business and he almost lost that business. His oldest daughter passed away and he suffered a cerebral hemorrhage. All this in a nine-month period. Afterward, he fell into a depression. He turned to the smile and laughter to heal himself from that depression. Fourteen years later, Eddy has become an international bestselling author, speaker, and trainer in overcoming challenges. He wrote two books, co-wrote in three more books, and was written about in two other books. Eddy hosted many events, appeared on national television, has been a guest on many radio shows, written about in newspapers, magazines, blogs, and more. Eddy also walked 2,000 miles from Florida to New York with only $200 in his pocket and no plan as to where he would eat and sleep each day, then wrote a book about it. Hosted an event named “Happiness in the park” and the Miami Dolphins hosted his event named “Smile and Wave America Day” two times during home NFL games in Hard Rock Stadium. Eddy is a diverse speaker, trainer, radio, and TV guest. Eddy’s "Never give up, never surrender" attitude is contagious and opens up the “Happiness Creative Intelligence” in us all!” Please email Eddy for more information email@example.com or visit http://thesmileandwaveproject.com/

Episode 22: Josh Anthon
Had a great conversation with Josh... twice. The first time we had some audio issues so we re-recorded the first third when we talked about his early career and then spliced it together. A bit choppy but I think it worked. After that it ran smoothly the rest of the way. I respect everyone’s right to like or dislike Josh and feel free to debate. What is not debatable is that Josh is a human being and a member of our disc golf community and Frisbee Family, that makes him part of my family and he gets as much of my love as everyone else in my family. Take that for what it’s worth. I hope you all enjoy!
