Podcast – Ep. 48 – Josh Rivedal, Suicide Prevention, Advocacy, The I'm Possible Project

In this episode I’m talking with Advocate, Speaker, and Author, Josh Rivedal.

Josh joins me as we talk about his work in suicide prevention, and his unique approach to advocacy. He uses his experience and talent in theater to share his message of not only his only suicide attempt but also enduring the loss of his father to suicide. His powerful story, shared as only he can, gives you insight to not only his life, but the feelings of others who struggle. His one man play goes above and beyond normal speaking and teaching, and allows you to connect in a real, raw, emotional way.

We also discuss his books, the I’m Possible series, one of which my story as a survivor is featured (volume 2).

Join Josh and I as we talk Suicide Prevention, Advocacy, Awareness, and the importance of giving a voice to those who may not have one, and inspiring others.

Be sure and head over to for more information on Josh, his books, and resources.

Podcast – Ep. 47 – Understanding Flashbacks, Podcast with Rachel Grant

Welcome back to Surviving My Podcast! I’m please to introduce a returning guest and my good friend, Rachel Grant. Rachel is a Sexual Abuse Recovery Coach, and has an MA in Counseling Psychology. Her extensive research on how the brain is affected by trauma has been life changing for her clients and everyone who has read her book, Beyond Surviving, the Final Stage of Recovery from Sexual Abuse.

In this podcast we discuss the topic of Flashbacks. We learn about what they are, and how our brain reacts during a flashback. We discuss the importance of understanding why they happen and we share ways that you can effectively decrease not only their intensity, but their frequency.

So grab those headphones or plug us in to your car and join us for a time of sharing, validation, and healing. Don’t forget to head over to to find out more about Rachel, her program – Beyond Surviving, and all of the amazing resources she has available.
