In this episode, we prove that age is just a number — and that if you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter! From a woman overcoming a traumatic and nearly tragic accident to the men and women who race their way through life’s twists and turns, we celebrate the power of attitude.
- Family, Friends and Pancakes
- We spend our days talking to or in search of ordinary people living extraordinary lives. And what we’ve learned is that anyone can do it. All it takes is passion. And the best thing about passion is that it’s contagious. Dr. Jack Beattie has it. And his family and friends have caught it.
- Mind Over Matter
- Jennifer Field was 17 when a car accident left her comatose with a severe brain injury. Few expected her to survive. But she did. Fewer expected any kind of recovery. And it HAS been a battle, step by agonizing step, for nearly 20 years. Now, she travels the country, performing a one-woman show, re-living her story so that others who’ve suffered traumatic brain injuries never lose hope.
- The Veterans of Motocross
- It’s the ultimate motorized highwire act, requiring lightning-fast reflexes, incredible strength and stamina, and nerves of steel. For decades, motocross has been a young man’s extreme sport. It’s still extreme, but suddenly there’s gray hair everywhere.
- How Tuppperware Helped Women Grow Bolder
- The plastic bowl with the airtight seal helped transform American society and advance the women’s movement worldwide. Today, a Tupperware party is held every 2.5 seconds. Women go home with new containers and a new dream for a better future. Most likely, none of it would have happened if it wasn’t for a man named Gary McDonald.
