A Summer of Resiliency in 2021

If there was ever a summer of the comeback kids, it’s this one, summer 2021! This comeback kid on wheels is feeling the resilience of America everywhere I roll and on the podcast apps I scroll!

This summer, I just found out the original online talk show I had created, The Sportshour with Alex Garrett , was approved by the iHeartRadio app!

Why this means so much is there were countless times while on air at WQMC Radio at Queens College the ratings meter did not tick up very much. That honestly got into my head a lot more than I’d like to admit! Imagine thinking you are taking to yourself and only thyself?! Yet, I didn’t give up on the show and now it’s on podcast apps all over the place!

Let me say that again: I didn’t give up on the show and now it’s on podcast apps all over the place, under the umbrella of Alex Garrett Podcasting. So if this summer can be realized as a summer of resilience, you TOO can stay resilient!

While we now have to hunker down against the Delta variant, our resilience is needed again and that includes not locking down again! We can weather this storm without shutting down, I freaking feel it!

It’s wild to think seeing my own show on IHeartRadio and some confidence-stilling can inspire staying the course of resiliency . It’s the only way I know how to live by persevering and living through any adversity! It can be done!

A self-created podcast on a podcast app has helped teach me that this summer of the come back kid!

When Life Is In Real ‘Jeopardy’!

Jeopardy; jeopardy is a word that has been popularized by the amazing duo of Merv Griffin and well, Alex Trebek! Who doesn’t love Alex Trebek, right? The answer, Alex, is, RIGHT!

For someone who has reacted in the best ways possible to people who put their knowledge in financial jeopardy, even through the Daily Double, it’s no surprise then, the outpouring of support for MR. Trebek’s real life Jeopardy.

When our lives are in Jeopardy, that’s when our grit, our toughness, our faith, and our resiliency shows up! As John Belushi, “when the tough , THE TOUGH GET GOIN!” That is why, I really believe that Alex Trebek will fight this stage four pancreatic cancer into remission.

The country united around the devastating news that Alex revealed on his legendary Jeopardy set, because that’s what happens when one of our own is in real Jeopardy.

If only in this life, could we all react to each other daily as if each other’s lives are in Jeopardy, then we will be unified . Why? Because then we would be kinder to each other if we recognized the fragility of life!

For goodness sake, Mets HOF pitcher Tom Seaver has just been diagnosed with dementia. Fragile, LIFE is fragile!

Let’s cut out the Anti-Semitism, let’s cut out the racism that does exist, let’s even cut out talking over each other, start listening and stop putting everything in our lives, in Jeopardy! Alex Trebek will fight for life, maybe he can inspire us to LOVE the life we are all given .
