Faith, Abundance, & Trust: The Water & Sand Parable | Ep.202 Josh Salvaterra

Faith, Abundance, & Trust: The Water & Sand Parable | Ep.202 Josh Salvaterra 150 150 OnTheStacks

Imagine waking up every day without access to clean, running water. This is the reality for 19 million people living in Kenya. The DIRT Project, founded by Josh Salvaterra, which stands for “Deeply Invested in Reaching the Third world,” is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for those living in Third-World countries to provide them with water access and irrigation systems, enabling them the ability to grow their own food and work on their land in order to become a more self-sustaining community.

In this episode, Bill and Josh sit down and journey through stories of faith, serendipity, and the transformative power of giving back. We uncover the soulful work of The DIRT Project in Kenyan communities, where clean water isn’t just a resource — it’s a lifeline. The stories and experiences shared in this episode reflect the depth of change that one person’s act of faith can ignite, spreading ripples of abundance and hope across oceans. From Bill and Josh’s spontaneous encounter leading to a collaboration this upcoming summer in Africa, to the meaningful impact of providing clean, running water to families in Kenya, each story is a testament to the enduring impact of kindness and charity.

The heart of this episode is the Water & Sand Parable, a profound lesson for life’s balance between holding on and letting go. Like sand slipping through our fingers when gripping too tightly, we discuss how the act of opening our hands in trust and generosity allows us to receive and hold even more—just as water cupped in open palms. Through our shared experiences and the power of giving, we invite listeners to find their own path of philanthropy and fulfillment.

Bill Corcoran Jr.: Almost Dying & Leaving My Family Business | Ep.200

Bill Corcoran Jr.: Almost Dying & Leaving My Family Business | Ep.200 150 150 OnTheStacks

Join us in a special milestone celebration for our 200th episode, where roles are reversed, as Bill Corcoran Jr. take’s the guest seat on his own show for the first time since its inception in 2020. Hosted by our show’s Executive Producer, Jimmy T. Martin, this episode isn’t just about the unpredictability of health; it’s a chapter of profound change. Bill gets personal about the decision to leave the family business — an 84-year legacy that was never a light burden to carry. We talk about the pressures that come with upholding a legacy family name, the courage to forge one’s own path, and the reevaluation of life’s priorities that often comes with close brushes with mortality. Bill shares his journey of transition, finding balance between ambition and well-being, and the surprising paths life can take when you’re prepared to listen to your own heart. We round off the episode with conversations about psychedelics, the intricacies of maintaining a public persona, and the authenticity that resonates with our listeners. Bill and Jimmy invite you to join in as we share in laughter, tears, life lessons, and a glimpse into the soul of creativity and entrepreneurship that defines not just our 200th episode, but OnTheStacks. A special thank you to my wife, Jess, and my mom Sue for always being there and supporting me. Also, a big thank you to the OTS team: Jimmy T. Martin, Eric Curtis, Jerry Rizzo, Dr. Will Ramey, & Brian DiMattia. To all of our fans, sponsors, partners, and anyone else that has helped us along the way, thank you.

Able Heart: Melodies of Manifestation: Turning Setbacks into Soundtracks | Ep.199 150 150 OnTheStacks

This week in the blu door studio, Bill chats with Able Heart, Miami based-singer, songwriter and producer. Able was lost in life after his Amateur US Olympic snowboarding career came to an abrupt halt due to an injury. For years, he questioned his life and struggled with depression and addiction in his hometown of Philadelphia until he found a deep connection and purpose with music. He went on to win the show SONGLAND on NBC and worked with Ryan Tedder and Ester Dean to create the Jonas Brother’s hit song “GREENLIGHT” which was #1 on the billboard charts. Embrace the game of life with a fresh perspective, as Able illustrates how pivotal decisions can resemble strategic moves on a game board, each with profound consequences. Learn to make choices with intention, guided by an understanding of the laws of the universe and spiritual principles like the law of attraction. You’ll hear how shifting your focus and beliefs can craft a new reality, and how evolving from instinctual survival reactions to conscious reflection can lead us towards fulfillment and happiness.

This week in the blu door studio, Bill sits down Frank Bartoli, Founder and CEO of PA Inclusive, a non-profit focused on creating and supporting inclusive and sustainable lives for people with disabilities.

We also explore employment opportunities and support services for individuals with disabilities, including funding, waivers, and facilitating their transition to independent living.

Dennis Cavaliere (Part II): Murder, Reform, & Redemption | Ep.195

Dennis Cavaliere (Part II): Murder, Reform, & Redemption | Ep.195 150 150 OnTheStacks

(Part II – Continued from Ep.194) This week in the blu door studio, Bill sits down with Dennis Cavaliere, from 10th and Oregon Ave. in Philadelphia. When he was 11 years old, his father was murdered. About 5 years later, on January 4th, 1990, at the age of 16, Dennis murdered a man with a ball peen hammer.

At the time of this recording, Dennis was out of prison for only 71 days after spending 30 of his last 34 years behind bars. He served 9 years for his initial crime, but his journey through the justice system was far from over. In a desperate bid to reclaim his life, Dennis took to the streets of South Philly with the 10th & Oregon Gang – an Italian American gang and organized crime group. At one point he was making $250,000 per month selling cocaine before landing himself in prison again.

This gripping two-part episode delves deep into the life of Dennis Cavaliere, exploring the depths of human resilience and the quest for reform. The raw honesty of his narrative draws us into the deeply personal realm of his struggles, crimes, and road to redemption. Dennis opens up about the duality of morality, his Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), the pursuit of the American dream, and the challenges of maintaining integrity amid systemic failure. He shares insights into the transformative power of the unexpected bonds formed behind bars, and the potential for growth through positive reinforcement. Our discussion highlights the need for genuine opportunities for change and the collective effort required to break the cycle of incarceration.

Dennis also shares his business mindset, where lessons from his former street life can lead to entrepreneurial success. Hear how friendship, loyalty, and personal growth can emerge from the unlikeliest of places, and how accountability can be a powerful tool for change.

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 1920 1080 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.

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.

$3 Million Later: Success Fueled by Doubt & Criticism | Ep.190 Jordan Consagra 1920 1080 OnTheStacks

This week in the blu door studio, Bill joined by Jordan Consagra, Partner at MDK Realty.

Brought to you by Sweat Tent! Get $100 OFF with code OTS at SweatTent.com.

Ever been severely doubted? Criticized? Told you’ll never make it? Then this is the episode for you.

We find solace in the enduring bonds of long-standing friendships, even as we navigate the ebbs and flows of our evolving careers. The podcasting world, like life itself, is ripe with change, and we’re here embracing it all — including the underlying commitment it takes to keep the dream alive and kicking. Yet, beneath the grand plans lies a simple truth: It’s the loyal people by our side who believed in us, came up with us, and made the journey worthwhile.

And let’s not forget the grind, the hustle, and the sweet taste of vindication as we ascend from underdogs to leaders in our fields. Each chapter of our shared narrative is a testament to the power of resilience and the joy found in supporting one another’s ventures.

Tune in for an episode that’s brimming with life lessons, camaraderie, and the reaffirmation that every challenge is just another stepping stone on the road to fulfillment.

Garza Crew: Building a Media Empire with my Kids, Content Creation, & Motherhood | Ep.182 Adrea Garza 150 150 OnTheStacks
This week in the blu door studio, Bill sits down with Adrea Garza, mom of the mom + twins influencer trio @garzacrew from Edmond, Oklahoma.
What started out as a fun and creative way for Adrea to document her daughters growing up, turned into a full blown media company amassing 4.6 million followers. Her career goal was to work her way up the corporate ladder and become CEO by 40. She still achieved her goal, but in a way that she never imagined, now running a media empire of her own with the people she enjoys spending time with most, her kids.
In this episode, we delve into her life-changing decision of leaving her pharmaceutical sales career to become a full-time mother and content creator, and the domino effect it had, leading to a viral moment on TikTok during the 2020 election. We also talk about her and her daughters’ business ventures and goals, the potential of a reality TV series, and parenting in a digital age.

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 1920 1080 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 1920 1080 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.

Edward Crowe: Psilocybin Mushrooms as Therapy, Managing Yelawolf, & Photography | Ep.178 1920 1080 OnTheStacks

Ep.178: We took the blu door studio on a road trip to Nashville, TN. This is the 1st of 4 episodes from the OTS Road Show.

In this episode, Bill sat down with Edward Crowe, a music business executive, photographer, high dose psilocybin ceremonial leader, mystic, & citizen Scientist.

He says psilocybin mushrooms quite literally saved his life. Commonly referred to as “magic mushrooms,” Psilocybin is known for its recreational and psychedelic experience. However, this substance has been widely noted to be a potential therapy for hard-to-treat disorders such as PTSD, anxiety, depression, addiction and more.

In this episode Edward shares his life changing experience with psilocybin mushrooms, his journey becoming Yelawolf’s manager, and creative exploration in music, photography, and the cigar business.

Join me in the blu door studio for today’s episode, as I converse with Major General John Gronski U.S. Army (Ret.), a leader who commanded a brigade of 5,000 Soldiers and Marines in Ramadi Iraq in 2005-2006, which, at that time is said to have been the bloodiest and most dangerous place in the world.

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

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.

The Konkrete Path To The Podium: Ingredients For Success As An Athlete & Coach | Ep.172 Steve Mytych 150 150 OnTheStacks

Join Bill in the blu door studio with Steve Mytych, the Rutgers University Assistant Wrestling Coach. 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.

Join me in the blu door studio as I sit down with social media influencer and model, Kae Ellsworth, as we explore her digital journey and the world of social media influencers and content creators. But Kae isn’t your typical social media influencer. She’s a fierce advocate for self-reliance, financial independence, and the power of smart investments. Kae shares her experiences working with brands, her fast rise in popularity on platforms like Instagram and TikTok, and how her authenticity turned out to be a total game-changer. She stresses the importance of staying honest with your audience and being able to handle the negativity that comes along with the job. Not only does she handle the hate comments well, but she uses it to her advantage to boost her content and engagement in the ever changing social media algorithms.

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.

The Smart, Hungry, Humble, & Resilient Approach To Building Your Life’s Work | Ep.157 Kurt Krasavage 1920 1080 OnTheStacks

This week’s OnTheStacks guest in the blu door studio is Kurt Krasavage, a former global sales leader turned real estate investor and humanitarian.

Kurt dealt with some extreme trauma at a young age. All within a few years he watched his mother suffer from a massive stroke, lost multiple family members and friends in tragic deaths, and was crushed when he got fired from his job in Corporate America.

But losing his job was a blessing in disguise as he saw it as an opportunity to follow his dreams. It allowed Kurt to restart his life and pursue his purpose of improving the community and helping people make a bigger impact on the world.

In this episode Kurt talks about overcoming adversity and opens up for the first time about his shortcomings and embarrassing failure that cost him his former career. Kurt also shares his experiences leading multiple mergers and acquisitions, building global teams, and setting and achieving goals.

As a SCAD survivor, Kayla had to make a lot of adjustments to her everyday life. While still in heart failure at the time of this episode release, Kayla could no longer do the things she used to do. Life after SCAD is now a bit different, but she adjusted to her new way of life.

Bo Nickal Predicts Outcome of His July 8th Fight

Bo Nickal Predicts Outcome of His July 8th Fight 1920 1080 OnTheStacks

Bo Nickal

Bo Nickal predicts the outcome of his next fight against Tresean Gore on July 8th, saying, “there’s no way this guy gets out of the first round with me.”

Brought to you by our friends at Sweat Tent! The most EPIC Backyard Accessory of 2023! Get $100 OFF your purchase with code OTS at SweatTent.com

Bo Nickal went on to say that a first round finish will be consistent throughout his career going forward.

And in an even bolder statement, Bo Nickal says, he doesn’t think “anybody even has what it takes to make it more than 5 minutes with me” (in the Octagon).

These comments came during a 98-minute Exclusive conversation that Bo Nickal had with OnTheStacks Podcast host, Bill Corcoran Jr. on Wednesday March 29th. (recorded March 24th)

This was Bo Nickal’s first in-depth interview since his UFC debut win on March 4th against Jamie Pickett.

Bo Nickal is the hottest prospect the UFC has seen in its 30 year history!

Watch the full episode below on our YouTube Channel.

Even after an illustrious wrestling career at Penn State University, where he was a 3x National Champion for the renowned Nittany Lions wrestling program, Bo Nickal says he has unfinished business. He recently amassed global recognition following his March 4th Pay-Per-View victory against Jamie Pickett.

You’ve seen Bo on mat and in the Octagon, but this is a version of Bo you haven’t seen. In this 98-minute exclusive interview with OnTheStacks, Bo speaks openly about his family life and upbringing, the role faith plays in his life, and the transition from a winning career on the mat to a promising future in the Octagon as a top rated fighter in the UFC.
