Foundling: Found - Episode 1, Aaron Cross and Jake Hartley
Foundling: Found is a podcast series, hosted by care-leaver Julian Brown, that investigates the real stories of care, from the Foundling Hospital archives dating back to 1739, right through to the present day. Setting the stigma surrounding those with care experience against those real stories. Over the course of 12 episodes, Julian will be joined by some very special guests as he uncovers the fact and the individuals behind the media and literature fiction. On today's episode we will be talking to care-experienced young people to investigate Coram's archives that show the history of care, through to today. As well as, discussing the creative projects that the young people have been working on in response to that archive and even hearing one of them. Thank you to our guests on today's episode Aaron Cross and Jake Hartley.
A conversation with Aaron Cross from the Greyhound Protection League
Will Appelbe sits down with Aaron Cross from the Greyhound Protection League. Aaron has been a fierce advocate for greyhounds for over a decade, speaking truth to power and holding the racing industry accountable for its appalling treatment of dogs.
Aaron Cross is a husband, father, fisherman, firefighter, outdoorsman, surfer, and Jiu-Jitsu enthusiast. Aaron advocates for the empowerment of communities through Emergency Medical Training (EMT) a skill set he acquired during his time as a firefighter and rafting guide in the Grand Canyon. Aaron was the first member of his family to attend college and graduated from Portland State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Science and History.Aaron’s immediate humility is what originally attracted me to him. On the exterior he is your stereotypical “mans man”, but moreover, he is someone that listens, someone who is sincere with his words, he thinks deeply about his place and purpose in this world… and he loves to go fishing. Prior to this episode, I asked Aaron what he regards as his life’s most notable achievements and he highlighted a long and happy marriage, fathering his 3 amazing children and his profound relationship with his grandfather. Excited about the second half of his life, Aaron is with me on this week's episode to share his journey, experiences, challenges, and hopes for the future!Thanks to Indosole for supporting the showUse PROMO CODE: THT (15% discount...and you'll be SUPPORTING THE SHOW)https://indosole.com/If you enjoy the show please HIT SUBSCRIBE and leave a 5 star review in the iTunes store or Apple Podcast app—it really helps me to keep the show going, and if you want to go even further, head over to https://terriblehappytalks.com/ and pick up some ethically produced merchandise in the SHOP.

Aaron Cross is an Army veteran with tours of duty in both Afghanistan and Iraq. He started his career as a "grunt," (his words, not mine) and then became an airborne soldier and served with multiple units, to include the famed 101st Airborne Division. On his last tour in Afghanistan his vehicle was targeted by an IED, an incident for which he received the Purple Heart, and ultimately lead to the end of his military career. Aaron has been very vocal and open about his struggles with PTS (Post Traumatic Stress), which is far less common than it should be from those in military circles. Since his separation, 11 of the men he served with have chosen to end their own lives, a statistic that is far too common, and speaks to the challenges of military service in active war zones. War changes you, in my opinion, for both better and worse. You will come home a different person. You will see the world differently. You will struggle to find common ground. The journey is not the same for any two people. Hopefully someone listening to this is reassured on their own journey, and maintains the resolve to see their way through it.
I was introduced to Aaron Cross by our mutual friend Jonathan French. After taking one look at the titles of his books I knew he’d be a great podcast guest. I’m talking about titles like “Robocopter Ski Patrol” and “Ruben’s Cube Alaska: Bullet Point 2: Judgment Day: This Time It’s Real.” Quality work there, folks,… Continue reading 18 – Aaron Cross and Feed the Meter
