What Am I Missing?

Amanda Wirtz (Amanda and Emily: We Have a Podcast) joins me in the studio to discuss not one, not two, but all THREE Mighty Ducks movies.

We marvel at the rapid rise of this ragtag team of misfits as they go from local heroes to international stars to...junior varsity? It's complicated.

Amanda uses innovative media and live music to accentuate her unique style.  With candor, humility and humor, she reveals the truth behind her tragedy-to-triumph story. An encounter with Amanda is truly a pilgrimage of the heart.  The audience is not only markedly different, but better equipped to become better versions of themselves.

Rotary Code Of Ethics - the Four Way TestIn anything that I think, say or do, I ask myself the following four questions: is it the truth; is it fair to all concerned; is it beneficial to all concerned; will it build good-will and better friendships?
