Mayor Mike Lombardo: Art, Politics, & Psychology | Ep.192

Mayor Mike Lombardo: Art, Politics, & Psychology | Ep.192 150 150 OnTheStacks

This week in the blu door studio, Bill sits down with Mike Lombardo, Mayor of the City of Pittston. In a world where politics often feels rigid and divisive, Mayor Mike is a breath of fresh air. His commitment to the city he loves is matched by his willingness to roll up his sleeves and tackle challenges head-on, even if it means spending a day on a garbage truck in the dead of winter. In this episode, we take a deep dive into his leadership style and unique ability to connect with constituents through authenticity and humor. But it’s not just about the laughs. We delve into his psychology education background, from the hypothesis testing model that shapes his problem-solving ability, to the importance of self-critique, embracing mistakes, and connecting with the community. We also talk about the infrastructure challenges, affordable housing, and the strategic planning for the future of Pittston. On the lighter side of things, we chat about the importance of art and music, supporting local artists, city events, and of course, maintaining a sense of humor and simplicity!

Harlem Threads: Streetwear, Culture & Hip-Hop | Ep.191 Carlos Betances

Harlem Threads: Streetwear, Culture & Hip-Hop | Ep.191 Carlos Betances 150 150 OnTheStacks

This week in the blu door studio, Bill is joined by Carlos Betances, CEO of Jazrae Wear clothing line. Born and raised in Harlem, Carlos fondly recalls the many times he and his late-brother were “chillin’ on the stoop,” in front of their building. It served as a meeting place for friends and family, a hangout before and after sporting events, and a place to just “chill.” In his own words, Carlos says, “it’s a New York thing,” and is the essence of Harlem and New York City. This culture is weaved into his clothing line, paying homage to his brother and the city that raised him. In this episode, we share stories of resilience, from the sting of loss to the sobering realization of who truly supports us when the chips are down. Our conversation spans the transformative effects of evaluating life’s influences, setting boundaries, and the art of saying “no” — a recipe for valuing oneself, stitched together with the threads of personal anecdotes and entrepreneurial spirit. Join us in this deep conversation where vulnerability meets victory; where the loss of a loved one fuels the rebirth of a dream, and embracing change is the cornerstone of success.

BALDACCI: Gangbanger at 13, EFxFORT MUSIC, Meeting Estevan Oriol, Tattoos, & Family | Ep.181

BALDACCI: Gangbanger at 13, EFxFORT MUSIC, Meeting Estevan Oriol, Tattoos, & Family | Ep.181 150 150 OnTheStacks

BALDACCI, also known as “The Face of LA,” is a Mexican-American rapper from South Los Angeles’ Florence District, whose distinct appearance of tattoos covering his entire body, including his face, tell a story of pride, family, and loyalty. When he was 13, Baldacci followed in the footsteps of his father, Big Sailor, by joining Florencia-13 (F13), LA’s largest Latino gang. At 18, he was shot 5 times with an AK-47 semi-automatic assault rifle, and after 2 months in a coma, he went right back to the streets.

 

Our conversation unravels the fascinating aspects of his life, from his childhood growing up “on the block” of Converse Ave. immersed with gang life, surviving his near death experience at 18, and doing both State and Federal prison bids. We also explore his transformative journey into the music industry where he eventually started his own record label, The EFxFORT MUSIC, collaborating with Yelawolf, and his relationship with Estevan Oriol, an internationally known photographer who directed “LA Originals,” a Netflix Original Documentary.

Freemasonry, Philosophy, & Nature: A Guiding Compass for Self-Transformation | Ep.180 Warren Steury

Freemasonry, Philosophy, & Nature: A Guiding Compass for Self-Transformation | Ep.180 Warren Steury 150 150 OnTheStacks

Ep.180. We took the blu door studio on a road trip to Nashville, TN! In today’s #OnTheStacks episode, I sat down with Warren Steury, a Master Mason of the West Nashville Phoenix Freemasons’ Lodge #131. We take a deep dive into the myths and mysteries of Freemasonry, a fraternity often viewed through a distorted lens, despite its noble legacy dating back to the era of the Founding Fathers.

 

At 16 years old, he got caught up as a troubled youth, and subsequently, his parents enrolled him in a wilderness rehabilitation program, where he spent 83 days hiking and living off the land of the Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina with a small group of other juveniles and camp counselors, where he gained valuable life lessons.

 

Finally, we turned our spotlight on personal growth – the importance of having a code to live by. We talk about the role of daily reading and writing for personal development, and how these simple habits can bring clarity to one’s thoughts. We also talk about the evolution of content length, attention spans in the digital age, and how reading and writing remain our distinguishing traits as humans.

Seizures, Synesthesia, & Songwriting: Finding Melody Amid Chaos | Ep.179 April Rose Gabrielli 150 150 OnTheStacks

Ep.179. We took the blu door studio on a road trip to Nashville, TN! This is the 2nd of 4 episodes from the #OTSroadShow. In today’s #OnTheStacks episode, Bill sat down with April Rose Gabrielli, a Billboard charting alternative-rock/pop singer, songwriter, producer & pianist. In 2020, she was diagnosed with epilepsy. The profound mental health effect of her diagnosis could’ve easily put an end to her music career, but instead, she used her diagnosis as a creative challenge to continue to pursue music, even writing songs and signing a publishing and record deal during one of her hospital stays. She developed aphasia, which caused her to speak backwards. She lost her short-term memory. Reading and speaking was very difficult for her. She had to relearn how to use computer programs and play piano. During our discussion of her incredible comeback story, we also talk about gender bias in the music industry, finding strength in adversity, and developing compassion for those with hidden illnesses.

The Road To Reinvention: Switching Gears To Pursue Your Own Path | Ep.173 Katrina Wallace 150 150 OnTheStacks

We’ve all been there, right? Stuck in the proverbial grind, checking off the boxes of societal expectations. It was in these moments that Katrina Wallace dared to challenge the status quo, trading her familial obligations to carve out a path of her own. She reminds us of the strength that lies in unexpected support and the transformative power that genuine connections can bring.

 

 

Through our conversation, we explore the thought-provoking sphere of social media and its impact on our judgment of others. We dive into the very essence of it all – the art of networking, and how it forms the spine of relationship building. Katrina’s journey of finding her identity through community building enlightens us on the value of authentic conversations and meaningful relationships.

 

 

Her experience underscores the significance of stepping out of our self-imposed boundaries, daring to live authentically, and embracing the unfamiliar.

He is a four-time NCAA Division I national qualifier at Drexel University, where he became the Dragons’ all-time leader in wins with 137 during his career from 2005-2010. He went on to represent the Lehigh Valley Athletic Club and Team USA on the Olympic Freestyle Circuit, where he was crowned the University Freestyle National Champion in 2011. In this episode, Steve takes me through his journey of successes and failures from his time competing on the mat, and how he is now using his experiences and skills to coach a division I collegiate wrestling program. As we dig deeper into his professional coaching career, we talk about the recent expansion of the Big Ten Conference, High Level Coaching, Recruiting, and how NIL deals affect student athletes. We also talk about the importance of staying fresh throughout the season, and how recovery plays into that. Steve shares his personal goals for the upcoming wrestling season, his never-quit attitude, and the importance of speaking your goals out loud. Whether you’re into wrestling or simply want to hear a story of grit and determination, my conversation with Steve is a must-listen.

Believe, Strum & Repeat. Finding Joy Amidst Tragedy. | Ep.170 Jimmy Stranger

Believe, Strum & Repeat. Finding Joy Amidst Tragedy. | Ep.170 Jimmy Stranger 150 150 OnTheStacks

Join me OnTheStacks in the blu door studio as we journey through the life of musician Jimmy Stranger. In this episode, Jimmy opens up about the painful chapter of his life in 2004, marked by the brutal murder of his high school sweetheart, Carrie Lynn Martin, and the subsequent loss of his father that sent him into a downward spiral of addiction and hopelessness. Oftentimes, our society judges a book by its cover, and Jimmy is no stranger to this prejudice given his tattoos and appearance. He shares how people’s perception of him, based solely on his appearance, made him a living cliché, and how getting to know someone on a deeper level can shift these preconceived notions. We also talk about the journey of self-expression as an artist, finding your purpose, and making money as a full-time musician.

Greek Culture, Family Business, & The Pursuit of Harmony | Ep.167 Savina Ortiz

Greek Culture, Family Business, & The Pursuit of Harmony | Ep.167 Savina Ortiz 150 150 OnTheStacks

Today in the blu door studio I’m joined by Savina Ortiz – Mother, Therapist & Mental Health Advocate. Savina believes that perfect balance in life does not exist, and instead promotes the idea of harmony, where different aspects of life coexist harmoniously. In this episode, Savina talks about her Greek cultural heritage, which intertwines with her upbringing within a family that’s deeply rooted in the food industry. We also explore the challenges of navigating stillness after we achieve the goals we set and the pressure of having to do something next. Savina also shares her personal experience of navigating motherhood, family business, and the importance of finding the right therapist.

Breaking The Silence on Veteran PTSD & Mental Health | Ep.162 “Walk With Frank” Q&A

Breaking The Silence on Veteran PTSD & Mental Health | Ep.162 “Walk With Frank” Q&A 150 150 OnTheStacks

This week’s OnTheStacks episode is a previously live Q&A that Bill moderated at the F.M. Kirby Center following the showing of the Documentary film, “Walk With Frank.” The Q&A features film subject & Vietnam War Veteran, Frank Romeo, and filmmakers & co-owners of Mayers Films, Matt & Ryan Mayers.

 

At 70 years old, Frank walked across the entire state of New York to raise awareness for PTSD & mental health. This is his story.

 

Walk With Frank is a film about self discovery, mental health, and one man’s journey towards understanding and embracing his own PTSD. In the Q&A we discuss the Impact the film has had on Frank’s life, the ongoing struggles veterans face, and ways we can keep the conversation going to end the stigma of mental health and to inspire others to open up about their own mental illness.

 

Warning: this episode contains some pretty heavy subject matter including PTSD and suicide, so listener & viewer discretion is advised.

Ep.149: Elevating Your Health Through Integrative Medicine. | Louie Helmecki 150 150 OnTheStacks

This week’s guest in the blu door studio is Louie Helmecki, Owner of Elevation Wellness.  After 20 years of working in corporate America, Louie left his Med Device sales career to focus on building a business of his own and set out on a mission – one that would empower others to take charge of their health and well-being. Louie has always been passionate about health and wellness, but more so after battling cancer 3 times. Biohacking is all the rage these days. But what does it mean? In this episode, Louie breaks down what biohacking is and how you can use it to optimize your health, increase performance, and decrease your biological age. We explore the benefits and science behind Peptide Therapy, IV Vitamin Therapy, and NAD+ Therapy, all of which have shown to improve cognitive function, boost your immune system, increase athletic performance, reduce stress and inflammation, and slow down the aging process. NAD+ also helps regenerate cells, protect the brain against cellular damage, and combats a variety of conditions including depression, anxiety, PTSD, TBI’s, neurological diseases, and addiction.

I Couldn’t Afford Shoes as a Kid. Now I Own a Sneaker Store. | Ep.139: #OnTheStacks in the blu door studio with Isaac Mensah, Entrepreneur and Owner of Gemini Kicks.

 

He didn’t have material possessions as a kid, and some days there was only enough food for him and his siblings so his mom would go without eating dinner. Isaac credits her for his drive, character, and success from seeing how hard she worked and the sacrifices she made during his childhood.

 

While he was serving in the Navy overseas, he began buying Jordan sneakers and shipping them back home to Pennsylvania with the idea of eventually reselling them for a profit. Sneakers became an obsession. His love for sneakers and entrepreneurial spirit now allows him to make a living from something he once couldn’t afford.

 

We also talk about Sneaker Culture and the impact it has on business, society, and one’s self esteem.

Ep.137 | Maria Traino: Mindset & Neuroscience to Achieve Individualized Success. 150 150 OnTheStacks

Episode 137: #OnTheStacks in the blu door studio with Maria Traino, Entrepreneur and Personal Success Coach for Business Leaders.

 

Ten years ago, Maria started and built a successful boutique marketing and design agency, but felt unfulfilled even though she “had it all.” She realized something had to change, but felt “stuck,” so she dug deeper into the psychology and mindset of business and life and found herself learning NeuroCoaching tools.

 

Every day, the human brain processes 60,000-70,000 thoughts. According to the National Science Foundation, 80% of our thoughts are negative and 95% of our thoughts are repetitive. These negative and repetitive thoughts, much of which are buried in our subconscious, hinder our ability to change and grow.

 

In this episode Maria shares her 3 step process of designing a life you’ll love and how to acquire a deeper understanding of how the brain is wired to leverage it for individualized success.

 

As a certified NeuroCoach, Maria works with business leaders to help them use stress as motivation instead of devastation, overcome challenges more quickly and find solutions rapidly by teaching them how to leverage the science of achievement while mastering the art of fulfillment.

Bobby Arvon & Lorenzo Medico – Ep.136 150 150 OnTheStacks

Episode 136: #OnTheStacks in the blu door studio with Bobby Arvon & Lorenzo Medico. Early in Bobby’s music career he was told by an agent that he didn’t have a recording voice.

 

As a singer/songwriter, he later went on to become a Billboard Hot 100 recording artist, leading to many TV appearances, notably Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, The Merv Griffin Show and more. You may also recognize Bobby’s voice from the lead on the theme song of one of the most popular American television sitcoms, “Happy Days.”

 

Wanting to get back to his Scranton Pennsylvania roots, Bobby met Lorenzo through a mutual friend. As a performer, entrepreneur, and owner of ARTIC Entertainment, Lorenzo found a way to connect the dots between Bobby and fellow Scranton native, Marko Marcinko, to put together a live, one night only show, titled “Bobby Arvon with Marko Marcinko & the SJF Big Band featuring Lorenzo Medico.”

The show will be held on December 4th at the Kirby Center for the Creative Arts at Wyoming Seminary in Kingston PA.

 

This is Lorenzo’s first live production with his company, ARTIC Entertainment. Short for Art in community, his company is focused on promoting, producing and cultivating the film, live music, and theater arts industry in Northeast Pennsylvania.

Paul Williams – Ep.134 150 150 OnTheStacks

Episode 134: #OnTheStacks in the blu door studio with Paul Williams, Co-Owner of Perfect Storm Renovations, Kitchen & Bath.

 

Paul is a US Air Force Veteran with grit. After returning home from the military, he had a hard time finding work. He was so determined to make it that he used to ride his bike over 25 miles to work everyday.

 

After finding success as a kitchen remodel salesperson at a national big box store, Paul and his lifelong friend, Jerome Sulkoski, thought if they partnered together to start their own renovation company, that they would be the “Perfect Storm.”

 

When they first started their business in 2019, they would do renovations nearly for free just so they could build a portfolio of testimonials and before and after photos. Their first year in business they did $1 million in sales. Now, their multi-million dollar business is Northeast Pennsylvania’s leading kitchen and bath remodeling company.

Episode 133: #OnTheStacks in the blu door studio with Professional Golfer, Brandon Matthews. When he was 10 years old, he began to practice writing his signature because he believed one day he would become a professional athlete.

 

Three years ago, he was playing professionally, but was physically in pain almost everyday, in a bad place mentally, and golf wasn’t fun for the first time in his entire life. In his own words, his “horrible” 2019 was one of the greatest moments of his career.

 

Hitting rock bottom tested his character and prepared him for what was about to happen next.

 

In June of this year, Brandon secured his first PGA TOUR card.

Stephanie Decker – Ep.131

Stephanie Decker – Ep.131 150 150 OnTheStacks

Episode 131: #OnTheStacks in the blu door studio with Stephanie Decker, Associate Vice President of Social and Economic Impact at Lackawanna College.

 

Stephanie took over cooking duties for her family when she was just 10 years old after her mother became mentally ill and as her father was suffering from alcoholism.

 

She went on to study at the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) to become a Chef, worked for 20+ years in the restaurant industry, 10 of which she owned her own restaurant.

 

In 2010, her life and purpose intersected when she met a few executives from Lackawanna College that tasked her with starting the College’s School of Hospitality program. She built it from scratch with borrowed kitchens, Bunsen burners, and pots and pans out of the trunk of her car. The program now boasts 4 degrees and an 85 seat restaurant and bar at their main campus in Scranton, PA.

 

Now, as the College’s AVP of Social and Economic Impact, she uses her scrappy, make-it-happen mindset to help people live better lives through education, entrepreneurship, and community connection.

 

We also discuss a book that she is co-authoring along with Lackawanna College President Dr. Jill Murray, and Provost Dr. Erica Barone Pricci. The book, which hasn’t been published yet, focuses on the strategies these 3 leaders implemented over the last 10+ years to create a culture of innovation at the College, one of which landed the College on Fast Company’s prestigious list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies.

Fred Aebli – Ep.130

Fred Aebli – Ep.130 150 150 OnTheStacks

Episode 130: #OnTheStacks in the blu door studio with Fred Aebli aka Mr. Fred, creator of GetMeCoding.com.

 

As a Star Wars ‘1977’ kid, he was propelled into thinking “how do I get to space?” After graduating from Penn State, he realized the only way to get there was via the Astronaut Corps, so he pursued a military commission as a 2nd Lieutenant in the US Marines, traveled the globe pre-911, and was eventually promoted to Major.

 

When he returned home from active duty, he worked as a network engineer on early stage internet development for Bell Atlantic (now Verizon), as a software developer for Oracle, and later became an IST professor at Penn State.

 

After seeing a growing decline in kids exploring coding and “tinkering” with tech, along with the growing demand for IT professionals, he came up with the idea of GetMeCoding.com to teach kids coding and show them how fantasy/sci-fi can be doorways to new opportunities.

Host Bill Corcoran Jr. welcomes two highly engaging and entertaining guests for the first episode in the new blu door studio and #OnTheStacks Podcast HQ in Kingston, Pennsylvania.

As the famous saying goes, “if you can make it in Düsseldorf, you can make it anywhere!” Nick shares his recent experience of “resetting the algorithm,” and how the online content we consume affects our lives both positively and negatively. Jimmy talks about the importance of losing while you’re in the process of winning and how it’s helped prepare him for times that he faced adversity.

 

Nick and Jimmy also explain how to “yes, and…” a conversation and how it improves communication in both a personal and business setting. They even re-enact a few of their favorite sketches they’ve written and performed at the PIT in New York City.

Episode 127: #OnTheStacks in the blu door studio with former Wall Street Managing Director, Manny Santayana.

 

“Do the right thing and fear no man!” That is the mantra Manny lives by.

 

Despite almost getting fired from his first sales job at IBM, Manny went on to become a top salesperson at IBM and then for a firm on Wall Street. In 2002, he led an algorithmic electronic trading team at Credit Suisse, where he increased the sales from $2.5 million to $1 billion+ across 47 countries. They ranked #1 in the world and executed 9% of the total US trading volume.

 

Later in his career, he became Head of Sales at NASDAQ, and is responsible for rebuilding the entire NASDAQ sales force after their global trading clients were adversely affected by the Facebook IPO technical trading disaster in 2012. Throughout his life and career, Manny has seen it all, experiencing extreme highs and lows, and what he calls the 4 C’s of Sociology: Cooperation, Competition, Conflict, and Corruption. Manny explains how he navigated these phases and the greatest lessons that Wall Street taught him about life.

Max got a taste of entrepreneurship and blue collar work at age 12 when he started working at a junkyard, buying and selling scrap metal, cars, and trucks.

His many business ventures, including his boutique cigar company based in the Dominican Republic, have given him the opportunity to travel the world and gain perspective by seeing how other cultures live and place value on success, money, and time.

Jamie Anzalone – Ep.123

Jamie Anzalone – Ep.123 150 150 OnTheStacks

Episode 123: #OnTheStacks in the blu door studio with Jamie Anzalone, Personal Injury Attorney and Partner at Anzalone Law. At 5 years old, Jamie knew he wanted to follow in father’s footsteps as a plaintiff’s trial lawyer after seeing him take great pride and joy in his daily work.

 

During law school Jamie started playing guitar and singing at open mic nights as a hobby. Through creative writing and playing music, he was able to build confidence that now enables him to excel at the highest level in the courtroom. Jamie learned that in both law and life, nothing is as it seems and nothing is black and white, and only by following the process can you get where you need to go.

 

Anzalone’s mission is to fight for people that can’t fight for themselves, and while many perceive personal injury attorneys in a negative light, this episode may leave you thinking differently after host Bill Corcoran Jr. challenges Jamie on those negative thoughts and misconceptions.

At 23 years old, with a couple hundred dollars to his name, Dave threw all of his belongings into his van and drove across the country to California to follow his dream of working in the music industry. When he arrived, he was homeless. He was so determined to make it, that until he got a job and saved up enough money to rent an apartment, he slept in his van and snuck into movie theaters and survived on free refills of popcorn and soda that others left behind.

After a few years of working for ET on MTV, he landed a job in the music industry. Working alongside two industry legends, Co-Founder of Interscope Records, Jimmy Iovine, and Rapper/Producer Dr. Dre, Dave helped develop and build Beats Music, which was eventually acquired by Apple for $3 billion in 2014 and became what we now know as Apple Music.

Burnt out after working in the corporate world, he decided to create his own music streaming platform, Showcase Daily. It is a platform for emerging talent that introduces one new artist and one new track everyday with a focus on promoting quality over quantity. The app is currently in the alpha testing phase with hopes of rolling it out to the public in Fall 2022.
