S2 Ep4. Living an Authentic Life: Voice Artist, Author, and Sepsis Survivor Lisa Brandt Shares Her Story
Lisa Brandt is the bestselling author of five books (soon to be six!), former morning show co-anchor at Toronto’s 680 News Radio, and versatile voice artist. She is also a sepsis survivor and is a recent spokesperson for The Global Sepsis Alliance.

As a sepsis survivor, Lisa shares the signs and symptoms (this potentially life-threatening condition can strike at any age), and why it is of utmost importance that you be your own health advocate.

If you're looking to make a change in your life, big or small, Lisa Brandt's story about the decisions she made to live an authentic life will inspire you to make that change. Lisa also shares how she almost died from a condition called sepsis. She also explains why she is a survivor, and not a statistic, of a condition that is touted as being the most preventable cause of death worldwide.
While sipping a strong sangria, Anita shares why she tosses her sangria at impatient and rude restaurant guests (not literally). Wear a mask and calm the BLEEP down people—we're in the middle of a pandemic! Servers are just trying to keep EVERYONE safe.
During our Good News Chronicles segment, Sheila shares a heartwarming story about how her colleague Steve Saylor reacts while playing a video game with exceptional accessibility features—for the very first time. You won't want to miss it.
Anita spills the sangria as she shares a story about how she made eye contact and waved lovingly at a teenage boy. Oy! This is yet another one of Anita's many "Claire Dunphy" moments. (Ya know, the mom from the hit comedy show Modern Family?)
