Episode 116: #OnTheStacks in the blu door studio with Joe Van Wie, host of the AllBetter Podcast. At 12 years old, Joe had his first sip of alcohol. He struggled with addiction on and off for 20+ years and used alcohol and drugs to fill a void of feeling disconnected from society. “Who is Joe going to be before he dies?” That is the question he asked him after waking up from a 19-day coma and realizing he wanted a second chance at life. Joe currently works in the recovery industry and just broke ground on construction of a youth transitional living facility in downtown Scranton. The clinic is set to open in the fall 2022.

570 day

2nd Annual #570Day Highlights NEPA on May 7

2nd Annual #570Day Highlights NEPA on May 7 800 600 #OnTheStacks Podcast

2nd Annual #570Day Highlights NEPA on May 7

570 DayFrom Press Release:

Northeast Pennsylvania packs a whole lot into one corner of the state. Last year’s inaugural #570Day was proof as residents, businesses and organizations spent the day flooding social media with photos and videos of some of the best people and places in the region.

#570Day is back again this year! On Saturday, May 7, 2022, event organizers are encouraging everyone across Northeast PA to celebrate local pride by using #570Day on social media to share what they love about the 570 area.

570 Day

Highlight your favorite park, shout out your Friday night pizza spot, thank a special teacher or show off a local product.

#570Day, held yearly on May 7th, is a chance to let the good in our area shine.

In honor of the 2nd annual #570Day, organizers are taking it to the next level and going beyond the post.

That means while everyone is sharing on social media, they’re also asking businesses, organization and individuals to put the 570 love into action.

The idea is to not only share what you love about the area, but to also get out and experience it.

Here are some examples of how to patriciate:

  • Offer a #570Day deal or special offer to promote your business
  • Organize a #570Day community cleanup
  • Hop on a trail for a #570Day hike
  • Grab dinner at your favorite 570 eatery
  • Put a spin on your specialty…create $570Day treats, host a #570Day yoga class or sponsor a #570Day dinner

#570Day began in 2021 as an online initiative born through the combined, creative efforts of the Wilkes-Barre Rotary Club, the Wyoming Valley Chamber of Commerce and Visit Luzerne County.

The day aims to spread positivity, local pride, and celebrate the people and places within the 570 area code.

With so much in Northeastern PA and so many stories to tell, they hope this movement will continue to grow as it’s celebrated yearly on May 7th.

What will you do to celebrate?

Connect with #570Day on Instagram and Facebook.

Police Ride Along Video and My 3 Takeaways

Police Ride Along Video and My 3 Takeaways 1129 638 #OnTheStacks Podcast

I recently went for an official Police ride along with Officer Homza and K9 Dasti of the Wilkes-Barre City Police K9 Unit as a follow up to his episode of the podcast (Ep.78), and here are my 3 takeaways:

#1 Appreciation & Perspective.

First let me start by saying, I gained a greater appreciation for law enforcement from this experience.

Not that I didn’t appreciate law enforcement prior to this, but after “walking a mile” in someone else’s shoes, it gave me a new perspective and a greater appreciation for the job these men and women do each day.

When I left my house that morning, there were several thoughts going through my head…

What’s going to happen today? What if we get in a car chase? What if we get caught in a shootout? Am I going to return home today?

But the one that stuck in my head is, “Am I going to return home today?”

Stop and think for a minute. When you go to work everyday, do you ever think, “I might not come home today?”

Probably not.

I know I don’t. But that day, I thought about it.

These men and women, who put their lives on the line everyday knowing they might not return home, gave me a whole new appreciation and perspective.

#2 Leadership.

Officer Homza is a leader in many ways.

He truly cares about the community and goes out of his way to build relationships.

We met a few young kids that approached officer Homza’s car while we were turning around in a parking lot of a housing development.

We drove back to the police station quick to get some sticker/badges and of course, lollipops.

He handed them out to the kids and they were so excited to talk with us.

Two of them even said they want to be just like Officer Homza when they grow up.

There were high-fives all around.

Officer Homza is a leader.

#3 Police Officers are Human, too.

I witnessed officer Homza treating people with kindness, empathy, respect – a few qualities that are rarely shown in the mainstream media.

Most times police officers are portrayed as intimidating individuals, and they can be.

It is their job to be assertive, and give clear and direct instructions.

While on a domestic dispute call, officer Homza actually took the time to understand and empathize with this individual, aka the “suspect.”

In a tense situation like this, that could have gone south very quickly, officer Homza was calm and respectful.

There was a mutual respect.

We all even shared a few laughs at the end of it.

Police Officers are Human, too.

Now if you made it this far, thanks for reading. Below is a link to the full ride along video:

#OnTheStacks Podcast Reaches all 7 Continents with Latest Subscriber in Antarctica

#OnTheStacks Podcast Reaches all 7 Continents with Latest Subscriber in Antarctica 1200 628 #OnTheStacks Podcast

With our latest subscriber streaming from McMurdo Station in Antarctica, the #OnTheStacks Podcast has officially reached all 7 Continents in the world.

Chris Dunstone, retired First Sergeant of the United States Air Force (22 years of service) recently landed at McMurdo Station in Antarctica on a 6 month mission forecasting the weather in surrounding areas to support scientific flights for the US National Science Foundation.

Dunstone just returned to the US in May after spending the last 2 years in Kabul, Afghanistan.

It took him 2 months to prepare for his next and current mission, Antarctica.

Chris shared this selfie (below) on Facebook earlier today, letting us know he was listening to Ep.073 of the #OnTheStacks Podcast, and proudly confirming he helped us seal the deal of reaching all 7 Continents in the world.

McMurdo Station (77°51’S, 166°40’E), the main U.S. Research Station in Antarctica is located at the southern tip of Ross Island, about 2,415 miles south of Christchurch, New Zealand, and 850 miles north of the South Pole.

This ice-covered landmass is virtually uninhabited. It is the coldest, driest, windiest, and iciest continent in the world.

How cold is it?

The current temperature in Antarctica is -60°F with a wind chill of -80°F.

“Here it’s cold, and I mean cold. I was mentally prepared for it, but not so much Physically,” said Dunstone. “It hurts,” he added.

So how did this happen? How did Chris find and listen to the #OnTheStacks Podcast? There’s a bit of a story to this, so follow us through…

We took to social media last week asking if any of our listeners/fans/followers knew of anyone in Antarctica that might be interested in listening to our show, and in turn, helping us put a check mark next to our goal of gaining listenership on all 7 continents.

At that point, we had listenership on 6 of 7 continents.

And wouldn’t you believe it…

A fellow podcaster from Waterloo Iowa, Nate Allison (host of The World With Nate), saw my Facebook post (below) and passed along our show link to his friend and former First Sergeant (USAF), Chris Dunstone.

Nate and Chris served in the US Air Force together at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois from 2011-2015.

Both active duty at the time, they worked for the Operations Support Squadron.

Their mission was mostly distinguished visitor travel aboard the C-21 Aircraft, similar to a civilian Learjet.

“Chris always gave me good advice and cared about the role of First Sergeant,” Allison said. “I’ll always have respect for him and his continued service.”

A big thanks is in order to Nate for making the connection and to Chris for braving the sub-zero Antarctic temps to snap a photo outside of McMurdo Station while listening to the #OnTheStacks Podcast!

Within 18 months since its inception, the #OnTheStacks Podcast has gained listeners in 20 countries (full list at the bottom of this article), and now 7 out of 7 continents.

While the majority of our listenership is in the northeast region of the United States, we’re proud to say that we have a global footprint.

A podcast from Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, showcasing guests mostly from the NEPA area, is now reaching all 7 continents of the world – pretty cool, huh?! At least we think so..

Here’s the full list of countries with listeners that subscribe and stream episodes of the #OnTheStacks Podcast:

1. Australia 🇦🇺

2. Belgium 🇧🇪

3. Canada 🇨🇦

4. Colombia 🇨🇴

5. Dominican Republic 🇩🇴
