[NEW EPISODE] The 100th Show!

Thursdays 5:00pm - 6:00pm (EDT)

Karen Ross and I will have an open discussion about Frank About Health and its mission over the last 100 episodes.  The audience will learn how we began where we've been and what the intention for the program will be in the coming year.

For 100 episodes Frank About Health has covered Epilepsy, Covid, Cancer, Diabetes, Mental Health, Autism, PTSD, Alternative Healthcare and many other social viewpoints on healthcare. The show's commitment to advocacy has grown into a platform to generate social campaigns for providing viewers and listeners with places to find support. The cadre of guests and co-hosts has become resourceful on our YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn channels and in the new year new partners will become integrated into the show's network of healthcare professionals, advocates and others who provide a service to support mental health and quality of life care management. This show will recap some of those moments through discussion with Karen Ross Live from Chicago.

00:00:51.490 --> 00:00:58.050 Frank R. Harrison: okay, everybody welcome to the one hundredth episode of Frank about health.

00:00:58.270 --> 00:01:07.049 Frank R. Harrison: I was looking to give you a creative logo with something from Hilton involved. But you know what. We're here. A 100 episodes later

00:01:07.050 --> 00:01:29.560 Frank R. Harrison: at Hilton, in Chicago, at the magnificent mile, and I'm in person with one of my favorite guests, Karen Ross, who was on the show a few weeks ago, talking about Karen Ross now, and hypnosis and hypnotherapy, and the quality of your mental health, you having the power to reprogram your thoughts and your mind, and retrain your brainwave so that you can live your best life possible.

00:01:29.560 --> 00:01:35.739 Frank R. Harrison: and for that reason I thought she would be the best person to come on the hundredth show with me right here at Hilton.

00:01:35.760 --> 00:01:48.619 Frank R. Harrison: and do what we can. Thanks to Logan and minimizing any technical difficulties that could occur that we would just commemorate what Frank about health has been about over the past really 2 years.

00:01:48.660 --> 00:02:08.000 Frank R. Harrison: but definitely the last 100 episodes, because there's been so many lessons learned. There's been so many rough knocks or mistakes. But you know what how else would I have learned those lessons. But we're not gonna talk about a healthcare topic in particular. Therefore I'll issue my disclaimer out of formality

00:02:08.000 --> 00:02:20.979 Frank R. Harrison: any discussion tonight, whether it comes up with mental health or epilepsy, or cancer, or or any other kind of alternative treatments that you may agree or disagree. It's just conversation.

00:02:21.020 --> 00:02:46.340 Frank R. Harrison: It's not something to be taken as the thoughts or viewpoints of Frank about health or of talk radio, dot, Nyc. But of food for thought that you could use in monitoring your own treatment, methodology, or whatever protocol you are using with your primary care, physician or targeted specialists depending on. If you are dealing with a chronic illness at this time. The main purpose of this show has been.

00:02:46.490 --> 00:02:53.220 Frank R. Harrison: will always be, and will mandate in the future to advocate for your own healthcare.

00:02:53.790 --> 00:02:59.129 Frank R. Harrison: My name is Frank. but I'm being frank, open, honest, and transparent

00:02:59.250 --> 00:03:01.249 Frank R. Harrison: about one's health.

00:03:01.520 --> 00:03:29.009 Frank R. Harrison: and therefore giving you the agency to manage your health with your professionals, that you work with, with your medicines, with your options, that you don't have to feel beholden to, that you can choose, if they are the best options to give you the best quality of life. The reason why I've been speaking about Hilton not just today, obviously, but in the last year, because there were a few shows that I've done at Hilton

00:03:29.060 --> 00:03:35.550 Frank R. Harrison: is because Hilton has been a partner in mind in fostering health care advocacy.

00:03:35.790 --> 00:03:38.680 Frank R. Harrison: When I first came back on the show in 2021.

00:03:38.840 --> 00:03:44.339 Frank R. Harrison: I wanted to make sure that I worked with a double tree Times Square in New York City.

00:03:44.420 --> 00:04:09.279 Frank R. Harrison: Why, actually, it wasn't Double tree. We're at Double Tree right now. It was Homewood suites. The reason is because they house every essential worker in New York city that was working at the local hospitals. Whether it was Nyu Langone, Mount Sinai, Beth, Israel at Lennox Hill. The list goes on, but we were in a very bad pandemic

00:04:09.280 --> 00:04:19.600 Frank R. Harrison: when all of our lives were in the home. Whether you were working, learning, cooking, having reunions with people, the only way that you could interact was virtually.

00:04:19.670 --> 00:04:25.189 Frank R. Harrison: and therefore the essential workers are the ones out there, battling constant

00:04:25.470 --> 00:04:41.989 Frank R. Harrison: death and fear of spreading the illness to family friends loved ones. There's needed advocacy, and Hilton was there, and therefore what I had decided to do over the last 100 shows was pick topics that would foster the advocacy, and then

00:04:42.080 --> 00:04:53.609 Frank R. Harrison: in 2024, the plan is to work more closely with Hilton. Not just continue having frank about health episodes, but actually have live events for all of us to gather in person

00:04:53.630 --> 00:04:55.050 Frank R. Harrison: and talk about

00:04:55.060 --> 00:04:59.940 Frank R. Harrison: what ails us, what kind of treatment protocols we need to look into.

00:04:59.960 --> 00:05:11.759 Frank R. Harrison: There's the advent of new technologies like AI AI is a very controversial subject, but yet when it comes to healthcare, it's something I would highly recommend. So we need to learn more and more about that as well.

00:05:12.090 --> 00:05:15.830 Frank R. Harrison: Another aspect of today's show is not only going to be retrospective.

00:05:15.920 --> 00:05:20.180 Frank R. Harrison: but we are gonna talk again about not just the benefits of

00:05:20.230 --> 00:05:23.240 Frank R. Harrison: various healthcare topics that we've discussed on the show.

00:05:23.410 --> 00:05:40.629 Frank R. Harrison: But I'm gonna be interviewed by my friend Karen. She's gonna explore what's been in my mind the last 100 episodes, and hopefully awaken all of you out there who've been watching the show, whether it's been on Facebook or Linkedin, or twitch or on

00:05:41.250 --> 00:05:54.800 Frank R. Harrison: there's more out there. I'm just not remembering it right now, exactly. Exactly. Facebook Linkedin Twitch. And of course, our Youtube channel. How could I forget that? Okay, that all being said.

00:05:54.810 --> 00:05:56.210 Frank R. Harrison: I want to first

00:05:56.290 --> 00:05:59.659 Frank R. Harrison: say to everybody, thank you for being

00:06:00.020 --> 00:06:10.219 Frank R. Harrison: A loyal viewer, as Sam would say on his show. Loyal listener. I think at my last count I've had a monthly total of about 9 0 viewers.

00:06:10.350 --> 00:06:38.220 Frank R. Harrison: Now for a network like talk radio, Dot. Nyc, that's not. That's not bad, and I know a lot of you out there are watching the show after we've aired live. So that's also not bad because beauty of social media and the beauty of talk radio dot. Nyc is that this show will be replayed over and over and over and over again, and of course you have the option to go into our several social media channels and download it for yourself, so you can either hear it or watch it

00:06:38.230 --> 00:06:43.970 Frank R. Harrison: hopefully get a lot more takeaways from the second or third time. You've listened. Actually.

00:06:46.750 --> 00:06:54.880 Frank R. Harrison: transplants at a later shot. Very good. Either way, Youtube is our predominant channel. Facebook is next.

00:06:54.910 --> 00:07:06.420 Frank R. Harrison: Linkedin has joined us. And I know that twitch TV has also been added value. So you know, let's just let's just continue growing the Youtube family sharing the love.

00:07:06.440 --> 00:07:22.190 Frank R. Harrison: Because I know that the beauty of Youtube is that this show will be right archived the minute we sign off on the air. But at the same time it's downloadable and transferable to all of your friends and family and even medical professionals.

00:07:22.400 --> 00:07:23.280 Frank R. Harrison: Well.

00:07:23.490 --> 00:07:42.329 Frank R. Harrison: I just want basically again to just spend the hour organically with all of you. And if any of you have the ability, especially on Youtube to chime in comments, probably reflect on key episodes that you may have watched or liked or have interest in. We'll spend the second, third, and fourth segments of the show recapping

00:07:42.380 --> 00:07:56.879 Frank R. Harrison: some key episodes, but they'll probably be triggered by questions that Karen will start asking me my interview. Portion will be in the second segment, but for the remaining. I think we've got 5 min before our first break.

00:07:56.980 --> 00:08:11.119 Frank R. Harrison: I just wanna basically say that the purpose of the hundredth show being here at Hilton is to set a stage to set a an intention, which is is that if I manage to work out all my plans that I have to do back in New York City.

00:08:11.520 --> 00:08:29.249 Frank R. Harrison: I'm really hoping that all of our other shows will be at various Hilton's across the country, but predominantly in the New York city area, because I'm more local there simultaneously for those of you who have been watching my stages of epilepsy podcast with Jeff Demetrack, we will probably continue doing those shows

00:08:29.250 --> 00:08:41.359 Frank R. Harrison: Mit Ctl and at Nyu Langone, because of their predominant research center at the comprehensive epilepsy center. So want to be able to be relevant in terms of our setting as well as our discussion for the hour.

00:08:41.360 --> 00:09:02.969 Frank R. Harrison: Speaking of relevance and setting, would you like to, Karen? Talk about the building that is behind us. I wanted to be sure, before the sun goes down, that we do point out that right over your left shoulder, see a beautiful skyscraper, and that is part of Northwestern Hospital.

00:09:03.100 --> 00:09:23.969 Frank R. Harrison: and it's a huge complex, and Northwestern is known as one of the Premier teaching hospitals in the world and I know that they're known for their transplant department. They've got a great cardiology department. It's a a very robust organization.

00:09:23.970 --> 00:09:53.399 Frank R. Harrison: I live very near there, so I often have occasion to walk through, the, especially when the weather gets bad. I can go in one door and come out the other door that's like 3 or 4 blocks away, and when the snow is flying that that's very convenient, but it is. It's perfect to be located here in the Hilton Double Tree, and I have that over your shoulder so perfect location. And remember, if you attend the double tree, you get your double tree cookies. Courtesy

00:09:53.400 --> 00:10:13.809 Frank R. Harrison: of Hilton honors. Now they're known for their chocolate chip cookies, chocolate, chip it is, and there have been some in New York that did oatmeal raisin, but I don't think it had the same quality. No stick with the chocolate chip. Exactly. Now, just for anyone licensing purposes or legal purposes

00:10:14.000 --> 00:10:29.520 Frank R. Harrison: due to the arrangement that I have with Hilton grand vacations and Hilton worldwide holdings. Any discussion of Hilton is free license. I am able to do so at the courtesy of their working relationship that they have established with me since the close of 2022.

00:10:29.690 --> 00:10:35.690 Frank R. Harrison: The value added for all of you out there is. If you are looking for any hotel references.

00:10:35.910 --> 00:10:57.269 Frank R. Harrison: This is where you can come. I haven't yet worked out that when you mentioned Frank about health you can get a discount on a stay. But trust me, that is part of the plan. The point of the matter is, Hilton showed itself during Covid, and the way I vision the frank about health platform, as well as the accompanying resources and events that I've been trying to plan going forward.

00:10:57.510 --> 00:11:05.480 Frank R. Harrison: I don't see in my view again my opinion. I don't see any better hotel chain that

00:11:05.660 --> 00:11:17.100 Frank R. Harrison: has the interest of your healthcare in mind that I truly believe, but that is for you to decide upon your next travel visit. So we'll talk more about Hilton later in the show.

00:11:17.770 --> 00:11:42.719 Frank R. Harrison: I I'm actually a little nervous when you interview me. Well, that's good. You're on the other side of the table. But now, see, I used to do that a lot. I had a radio show here in Chicago, and I interviewed people. So it's kind of fun to come back to that activity. So I'm looking forward to it awesome, and I will make you feel comfortable, I promise, and trust me she will. If you had seen the episode we did on

00:11:42.720 --> 00:11:50.119 Frank R. Harrison: Karen Ross now I had a session with her at hypnotherapy session. I have to tell you it's done wonders from my whole outlook.

00:11:50.120 --> 00:12:15.380 Frank R. Harrison: With doing the show and focusing on my business plans for the New Year. So think of this one hundredth tribute. Show as a tribute to all of you, and how you can learn from my experiences, and how to regulate your own healthcare experiences or advocacy plans. Or if you want to launch your own podcast as well, and we'll actually recap examples of that having happened over the last 100 shows.

00:12:15.490 --> 00:12:39.910 Frank R. Harrison: At the same time, you may notice we'll be looking at each other, or we'll be looking direct here. But, thanks to Logan behind the scenes. We'll be getting any warnings if you can't see us, or we can't hear him, or whatever. I'm sure you all remember we had a show me and Matthew Asbell, where we stared at each other repeatedly. I don't think we even looked in the camera once, and I think in some scenes I was actually cut out because of the green screen.

00:12:39.910 --> 00:12:47.029 Frank R. Harrison: But we've learned from that experience as well, and the beauty of her interviewing me is not only

00:12:47.030 --> 00:12:58.359 Frank R. Harrison: her experience as a radio guest, but I just thought, after the experience in definitely working with her, that there's no other person that I could have think of to really commemorate where we've been.

00:12:58.580 --> 00:13:09.600 Frank R. Harrison: where we are now and where we're going. And, by the way, speaking of going, we're headed for our first break. So that being said, Please stay tuned to this

00:13:09.770 --> 00:13:12.099 Frank R. Harrison: hundredth episode of Frank about health.

00:13:12.120 --> 00:13:20.570 Frank R. Harrison: as we then explore me right here on talk radio dot, Nyc, as well as on

00:13:20.800 --> 00:13:23.320 Frank R. Harrison: Youtube. Facebook.

00:13:23.570 --> 00:13:27.320 Frank R. Harrison: Linkedin and Twitch, we will be back in a few.

00:15:41.010 --> 00:15:48.050 hey, everybody and welcome back, as you just saw. During the first commercial break I showed Karen Ross's website, Karen Ross. Now Com.

00:15:48.200 --> 00:16:02.290 Frank R. Harrison: it said all about her. And basically for those of you out there who do also remember the show we did. If you are interested in talking with her about a hypnotherapy session. She lives here in Chicago, but she's very easily

00:16:02.290 --> 00:16:24.040 Frank R. Harrison: traceable by phone. And of course, the website has her email address, or you can make an appointment for a zoom consultation and learn a lot about how possibly hypnotherapy can help with your mental health issues. We're all undergoing hyper, vigilant stress for various reasons in our lives. My theory, we're all still trying to get used to living life post covid. But

00:16:24.040 --> 00:16:47.369 Frank R. Harrison: there's also the constant noise we hear in the media every day and on social media. I think it's kind of programming our mental health beyond our control. So, having a hypnotherapy session, I strongly recommend, because it can keep you relaxed, focused, and living in the now. And speaking of the now, this is Karen's moment to interview me, and also we learn how frankly about health

00:16:47.590 --> 00:16:48.520 Frank R. Harrison: can be

00:16:48.720 --> 00:17:13.500 Frank R. Harrison: frank about your health. There you go. Well, thank you, Frank, I appreciate that. And so. And he's right. Hipotherapy can do amazing things. Some of the things that we typically think of linked to hypnosis like becoming a non smoker. Eating issues, pain, sleep, but people come to me with some kind of unusual items, too. So it's it's worth a conversation. So I welcome

00:17:13.500 --> 00:17:28.349 Frank R. Harrison: welcome your call and welcome a conversation. But, as Frank pointed out, what we're here for today is to talk about Frank, about health and how it got started. So 100 episodes.

00:17:28.349 --> 00:17:52.460 Frank R. Harrison: You know what a lot of radio shows and podcasts today do not last that long. So first of all, I wanna congratulate you because you're doing something right, or or that wouldn't have happened. So if people, though, have just recently started listening, or only been listening the last year or so they may not know. How did the show get started?

00:17:52.930 --> 00:18:13.080 Frank R. Harrison: Well, I always tell, during specific episodes of Frank about health, including those that I feature epilepsy topics that it was originally gonna be called frank about epilepsy back in 2,016. But why was it going to be about frank about epilepsy? Because I am an epileptic patient. I've been living with it since I was 16 years old.

00:18:13.180 --> 00:18:38.169 Frank R. Harrison: which is a long time ago. My birthday was just last week. And wow! I'm reaching my fortieth anniversary since my first onset. But the thing is, I've been seizure free for 15 years. I actually keep saying that because we have the 3 years of covid, it's 18 years now I've been seizure free. But the thing is is that I have an ongoing issue with partial epilepsy, that medication continues to contain and control.

00:18:38.170 --> 00:18:57.039 Frank R. Harrison: And I wanted at that time to really remove the stigma. It was gonna be a podcast featuring different alternative treatments, as well as different ways of looking at your epilepsy, depending on the type you had whether surgery was an option. I mean, it was all mainly targeted around epilepsy, but

00:18:57.250 --> 00:19:06.610 Frank R. Harrison: just wanted to call it Frank about health, because even in consulting with Sam Leibowitz, who work is the executive producer of talk radio dot. Nyc.

00:19:06.690 --> 00:19:36.560 Frank R. Harrison: It was already a stigma. How am I going to disprove it as a stigma? If I'm already targeting it as an epilepsy show? Not every person, especially those not living with it, is gonna watch absolutely, absolutely. And it wouldn't have lasted 100 episodes, and it had limited, correct, correct, and even back then, due to different restraints going on in my life at that time, including my my seizure disorder. I only lasted about 3 months. You know what brought me back was Covid.

00:19:37.120 --> 00:19:50.409 Frank R. Harrison: That's that's episode 100. But if you, if you look back to when I really began this would be episode 1 12. Okay, okay. So talk a little bit more about that when you say Covid that brought you back.

00:19:50.560 --> 00:19:56.190 Frank R. Harrison: Yes. Well, I remember being in my home with my father and mother.

00:19:56.430 --> 00:20:06.289 Frank R. Harrison: all contained for 5 months here in New York City, March 20. It was a Sunday, March twenty-twond 2020,

00:20:06.330 --> 00:20:13.439 Frank R. Harrison: until May thirteenth or fourteenth of that year. My father was also recovering from cancer.

00:20:13.700 --> 00:20:27.200 Frank R. Harrison: He was dealing with regulating what they call psa levels and adjusting medications and just trying to minimize side effects, and he could have been a perfect target, for when I did receive Covid.

00:20:27.360 --> 00:20:28.649 Frank R. Harrison: you know. So I,

00:20:28.730 --> 00:20:45.149 Frank R. Harrison: sis restrain myself in my bedroom for 5 days. Because I didn't want to be the reason why he passed on versus the fact that he was already combat combating cancer. My mother, of course, also did catch it from me, but it was so mild

00:20:45.150 --> 00:21:11.780 Frank R. Harrison: because she had already taken all the precautions and medications and treatments again. There were no treatments, there were no vaccines, there was nothing. All you could do was Tylenol and robitussin soup, and this and that we had no vitamins. We had no idea what we ran for, right? So that whole event I would stay was traumatic. Luckily I didn't have seizures at all through Covid. Wonderful right? So my my issue wasn't even trying to prevent them. My issue was trying to prevent giving Covid

00:21:11.790 --> 00:21:16.469 Frank R. Harrison: in particular to my father, so I found myself on a mercy mission.

00:21:16.770 --> 00:21:19.030 Frank R. Harrison: and Hilton.

00:21:19.120 --> 00:21:27.659 Frank R. Harrison: for those of you who don't know Hilton was actually also a former employer of mine. During the time I started frank about health.

00:21:27.910 --> 00:21:49.399 Frank R. Harrison: Now the thing is is that I went to Hilton to get away from my parents, so I didn't have the ability to transmit the virus, and I went to this one particular location in Times Square, called, as I mentioned earlier, home, with suites which had only nurses and doctors and vaccine distributors

00:21:49.580 --> 00:21:54.629 Frank R. Harrison: staying there or testers. I think it was the it was the

00:21:55.320 --> 00:22:10.499 Frank R. Harrison: the armed guards that the State released. What what do they call them? II can't think of the name right now. I actually said it on the show the wrong way. II think you call them storm troopers and not storm. No, definitely, not

00:22:10.870 --> 00:22:18.210 Frank R. Harrison: But they were housing them there, too, because the Javas center was right nearby, where they were administering the vaccines for the New York City residents. Now

00:22:18.270 --> 00:22:36.600 Frank R. Harrison: I had a meeting with the the manager on staff at the time, and I told him, look, I have, Covid, and I want to stay away from my father. Oh, we have all our essential workers here. Let let me check you in for a few nights, using the essential worker rate. And so I said, Listen, you know.

00:22:36.940 --> 00:22:42.559 Frank R. Harrison: I'd like to interview you if you don't mind, I'm thinking about doing a podcast or promotion

00:22:42.580 --> 00:22:47.529 Frank R. Harrison: about COVID-19. I had not yet spoken to Sam

00:22:47.690 --> 00:22:51.249 Frank R. Harrison: about coming back, but we did the pilot.

00:22:51.370 --> 00:22:53.690 Frank R. Harrison: He talked about what Hilton was doing

00:22:53.910 --> 00:23:15.860 Frank R. Harrison: in terms of housing, essential workers doing the clean start program, making sure that they had cancelled everything with room service so that they can sterilize the rooms with license products and everything, and he was saying that homeless suites in particular was not the only hotel in New York City doing this, but they were given most of the reviews by different people in the healthcare space.

00:23:15.930 --> 00:23:22.760 Frank R. Harrison: So II then, after that experience, about 3 weeks later, I came back home. My Covid had been relieved.

00:23:22.830 --> 00:23:33.810 Frank R. Harrison: Or resolved, I think, is the clinical word. and I contacted Sam. And I said. You know, I want to come back. I want to come back and do a show, and I have the perfect title for it.

00:23:33.840 --> 00:23:35.850 Frank R. Harrison: I want to call it the Cadre report

00:23:35.950 --> 00:24:04.920 Frank R. Harrison: all about COVID-19. And again he made the right decision, and said, No, people know you was frank about health, and so, lo and behold, that's why I came back. So what would people know about me today. Well, if they looked over the episodes, or even if they just join me right now, they know that based on my father's situation, not only am I an advocate for epilepsy. I'm an advocate for cancer. I'm an advocate for Alzheimer's disease because I have a cousin that I've also been caregiving for the last 2 years

00:24:04.930 --> 00:24:23.099 Frank R. Harrison: who didn't begin with that. But now has it? I've also gotten involved in alternative treatments. There's a dear friend of mine, Danielle Swanson, who was on both starts of frank about health, including my first episode. And she now has her own podcast on spotify it's called

00:24:25.720 --> 00:24:51.630 Frank R. Harrison: considerable changes, making considerable changes, you know, confident change alright. But the thing is is that I've been an inspiration for her. And then another actress, Rita Gray, who's also been a regular on Frank about health. She's a caregiver for a lot of seniors in her in her neighborhood. She's an actress, too. She worked with Betty White. I actually

00:24:51.880 --> 00:25:08.239 Frank R. Harrison: thank thank you, Betty. I know you're up there. I actually met Betty at several award shows. Oh, wow! And then, through Betty's agent. I met Rifa, and then the irony was when I met Ritha. It was while I was trying to develop a documentary

00:25:08.410 --> 00:25:09.530 Frank R. Harrison: and

00:25:09.600 --> 00:25:26.870 Frank R. Harrison: Obamacare and try to look at different healthcare solutions financially for people during that time, and she worked with me on that documentary. So then, before you know it, it's like what they say, 6 degrees of separation, and we're all looking for the same mission to advocate for each other.

00:25:27.460 --> 00:25:40.159 Frank R. Harrison: II mean people who meet Rita could go. Oh, Rita, great! I remember, I mean I don't look at her like that, because she's my dear friend and she is advocating, for she's advocate for this show. And

00:25:40.250 --> 00:25:47.950 Frank R. Harrison: so, in other words, the show isn't always on a specific health issue, but some of the issues surrounding

00:25:48.010 --> 00:25:59.099 Frank R. Harrison: health care. Yes, looking at health care as not only the profession that it is, but the ecosystem that it is because if you are

00:25:59.190 --> 00:26:09.269 Frank R. Harrison: the average everyday individual who's had to struggle with your insurance, or had to figure out like oh, I hope I don't get chronically ill because I can't afford it, or if you are

00:26:09.610 --> 00:26:20.399 Frank R. Harrison: lucky to be the few that are wealthy that you can pay out of pocket for everything. The fact is, healthcare is a liability across the board. It's not a for-profit, motivated business.

00:26:20.410 --> 00:26:38.769 Frank R. Harrison: It's there for our society. It's there for our system of checks and balances, which is through technology, which is through pharmaceutical drugs, which is through, of course, insurance, but there's never been a consensus as to what healthcare really is. They just know they don't want to be sick.

00:26:38.890 --> 00:26:41.499 Frank R. Harrison: sure, all right. So it becomes a hotbed of

00:26:41.610 --> 00:26:58.819 Frank R. Harrison: political discussion, which I try my best to shy away from. It's difficult. But hence that's why I issue disclaimers at the beginning of every show. You know. The the thing of the matter is, though, that with the birth of a lot of technologies like Zoom, due to Covid, and with.

00:26:58.870 --> 00:27:05.420 Frank R. Harrison: you know, if you want to get into political discussion, the Inflation reduction act affording insulin at $35. Now.

00:27:05.660 --> 00:27:13.439 Frank R. Harrison: you know, it is becoming understood to be a social issue that is managed by various private enterprises

00:27:13.510 --> 00:27:27.359 Frank R. Harrison: depending on the sector that's appropriate that fits it. But I think the common thread across the board is always going to be technology and innovation sure. And so there's more of a seamless understanding to healthcare now than there was when I started the show.

00:27:27.530 --> 00:27:29.900 Frank R. Harrison: What is that now? 7, 8 years ago.

00:27:30.100 --> 00:27:44.069 Frank R. Harrison: And so that's the way I'm taking the show going forward. I will talk about the different topics of healthcare. But how they relate to keeping yourself healthy, how they relate to well, okay, we have these typical treatments.

00:27:44.090 --> 00:27:53.219 Frank R. Harrison: Why don't you try this one, and see if that helps with your case. So is that your goal with the show is to expose people to

00:27:53.220 --> 00:28:17.539 Frank R. Harrison: alternatives and things they may not be aware of otherwise right, or they already know. But they just haven't been triggered by a memory to recall. Most people recall when they get sick. Sure, here. I am saying, think about this now, while you're still healthy. So I always use the word advocate. So yeah, how do you advocate? Yeah, educate. Just like the talk radio, Nyc promos educate advocate.

00:28:17.850 --> 00:28:25.669 Frank R. Harrison: And I think there's a third one. But the point is is that in terms of being able to make people aware that?

00:28:25.720 --> 00:28:26.990 Frank R. Harrison: Well, I mean.

00:28:27.040 --> 00:28:30.289 Frank R. Harrison: this is a brilliant analogy, and if you don't mind my saying

00:28:30.690 --> 00:28:37.040 Frank R. Harrison:  Sam, show the conscious consultant hour. Are you a co-creator. Well.

00:28:37.050 --> 00:28:43.949 Frank R. Harrison: you also have to be a co-manager of your health care to be a co-creator. Absolutely. That's why I targeted my show to be.

00:28:43.970 --> 00:28:50.160 Frank R. Harrison: It's actually not after his like it was originally, but it's on the same day. I don't see myself doing

00:28:50.250 --> 00:29:03.759 Frank R. Harrison: the show on a day when he's not doing his show, because I'm not trying to piggyback off of him directly. But while he has had plenty of great guests, I mean, and and plenty of guests, that he's referred to me, including yourself.

00:29:03.940 --> 00:29:17.890 Frank R. Harrison: We're all doing a spiritual awakening of our lives. Position show is various. There's healthcare topics, and there's non health care topics. But I'm saying now that you've had your dose of conscious awareness from 12 to one.

00:29:18.060 --> 00:29:20.400 Frank R. Harrison: Now let's be aware of your health issue.

00:29:20.750 --> 00:29:50.619 Frank R. Harrison: Yeah, yeah, cause. Without your help you can't do anything. Well, I want you to talk about some of your favorite episodes, so I don't know what our timing is. You have a better handle on that than I. So we close to a break time, I think we are. Yes, okay, so that being said, when I get. When we get back we will go through some of our, some of the thoughtful episodes. Definitely wonderful timing. Thank you, Logan. Alright. We'll we'll be back in a few

00:31:51.970 --> 00:31:58.480 Frank R. Harrison: hey, Logan? I just saw your comment. All I can say is that meeting her was a

00:31:58.570 --> 00:32:01.900 Frank R. Harrison: Betty White that is meeting her was a blessing.

00:32:01.990 --> 00:32:09.280 Frank R. Harrison: I'm just grateful. I had the opportunity to meet a person who obviously I watched on TV growing up. but treated me as I am.

00:32:09.330 --> 00:32:21.609 Frank R. Harrison: No, we have very few people in this world that do that, especially if they're not family. But the thing is is that I would have to say honestly that meeting Betty and her agent, who I now maintain a friendship with

00:32:21.780 --> 00:32:34.429 Frank R. Harrison: has been the reason for one another reason for doing this show, because I feel like in some ways I'm communicating her message, which she has done through her work. You know she's always advocating for animals.

00:32:34.530 --> 00:32:45.719 Frank R. Harrison: but at the same time she was always advocating for her co-stars and her friends and family, and I think she lived a full life, doing exactly what she loved doing, including helping others. And so

00:32:45.780 --> 00:32:52.010 Frank R. Harrison: that's another reason why I continued to talk about her and Rutha, because you were about to add, well, you did ask me

00:32:52.010 --> 00:33:16.649 Frank R. Harrison: what? Some of my favorite episodes? Yes, and I watched at least part of that episode with Rita, and I understand that she does something on tick tock with some of her actor friends. So is that one of your favorite episodes? Absolutely. But I was, gonna say, the episode we worked on together in the beginning of 2022 was a tribute to Betty White. Oh, which was myself.

00:33:16.650 --> 00:33:23.540 Frank R. Harrison: Rita and my co-host. Phyllis Quinlan and the 3 of us were just paying tribute to the person that

00:33:23.540 --> 00:33:37.620 Frank R. Harrison: she was at the time, and how I still consider her is because I always think, what would Betty have wanted to say about this particular topic depending upon her mindset again? I've only had 3 brief encounters with her.

00:33:37.820 --> 00:33:40.430 Frank R. Harrison: and they were probably 3 min at length.

00:33:40.510 --> 00:33:59.489 Frank R. Harrison: But the point is, in that 3 min. I felt like I've been with her for the entire hour. I can imagine that she would make someone feel that way. Yes, and I think we all got a sense for just how authentic she was. Oh, yes, very much, very much. And so I look at my meeting her as a a necessary

00:33:59.600 --> 00:34:28.970 Frank R. Harrison: issue, you know, because it was a trigger for me to be able to help create the show help, create a lot of my healthcare businesses that I work on, and where Rita comes in is because she was supporting some of those business ventures prior to Frank about health, and of course, when she appeared on Frank about health, she was also doing a lot of commercials. She did a commercial for Hilton. She was at the Beverly Hilton, okay, and she was on her mobile phone device. If you saw the commercial. But

00:34:29.299 --> 00:34:34.249 Frank R. Harrison: the point of the matter is is that she also had done senior care commercials.

00:34:34.260 --> 00:34:55.659 Frank R. Harrison: She's doing a a drug commercial that's been on the air for 2 years. It's called Cabanova, I believe, and she also has this Tik Tok series that is called Retirement House, that has over 5.4 million followers. The producers are now trying to negotiate it into a reality series. I don't know if that's gonna happen, because

00:34:55.860 --> 00:35:14.750 Frank R. Harrison: tick tock to cross over to Netflix. I don't know if it's ever been done. Cnn. Has featured them. They've been featured on ABC. News. They've been featured also, I think, and their local channels in La and local newspapers, the La Times stuff like that. So it's gotten a lot of feedback from mass media. But

00:35:15.230 --> 00:35:44.829 Frank R. Harrison: what I have found is that it's very hard to take a platform. That's a minute at length or 2 min at length, and derive a 30 min Sitcom out of it, or something like that. Well, if you're working with professional actors, though that's true, probably make that happen. Tell us about another favorite episode, or guess that I know you have some guests that you. They bring such valuable information that you've had them on more than one or twice. Maurice Telkovich is definitely one, because he

00:35:44.830 --> 00:35:47.880 also showed me not just his programs

00:35:47.880 --> 00:36:13.699 Frank R. Harrison: that help you with your sleep. It disorders or Alzheimer's, or that because I was working with his programs for my cousin and I was working with his programs for my mother, who had a sleeping problem due to my stress over my father. And also, I do believe, even though we haven't blatantly discussed it, that it can help control seizure activity, because I'm talking to you right now. But I'm sure my brain waves are misfiring.

00:36:13.700 --> 00:36:27.210 Frank R. Harrison: cause. That's what the epileptic condition is. It's not just when you have an attack. What does he do? Is he a doctor? No, he's not. And he issues disclaimers throughout every moment of our shows. But he's an engineer, and he was

00:36:27.290 --> 00:36:46.360 Frank R. Harrison: suicidal at 1 point in this life, and he told the story about how he tried to kill himself, but he kept doing it unsuccessfully, and it decided that instead, to use his engineering talent to create these sound vibration files that you actually download and play in these bone conduction headphones

00:36:46.580 --> 00:36:59.320 Frank R. Harrison: which I was able to buy on They are available, you know. Usually I do my show notice they're not even in my ears. What it does is, pulsates the temporal lobe, and sends the signals

00:36:59.380 --> 00:37:09.960 Frank R. Harrison: to your brain, and actually can re alter some of your brain waves. But again, it's not for everybody did he create those, or he created the files, and he's worked with

00:37:10.140 --> 00:37:21.780 Frank R. Harrison: people in China and in Canada to engineer the different distribution channels or touch points such as on those headphones, or even on certain speakers. He's now created visual

00:37:21.900 --> 00:37:23.570 Frank R. Harrison: visual

00:37:23.600 --> 00:37:28.860 Frank R. Harrison: devices. You can focus your energy and stuff like that again.

00:37:29.070 --> 00:37:42.249 Frank R. Harrison: because he's not a doctor, and he doesn't have patents or trademarks on this technology. It's use at your own discretion. You know, the best thing he's been able to do is create an audio podcast using AI.

00:37:42.390 --> 00:38:10.200 Frank R. Harrison: So my on my last show with him, which was only a few weeks ago. I listened to the first episode. It was an AI voice talking back with him, and he was asking questions. I I've heard that he was putting that together. I haven't heard it yet, but that's pretty fascinating, it really is. Now you mentioned AI a little bit ago. So just briefly give us an idea of the role that you see AI playing in healthcare, either up to now in in the future.

00:38:10.490 --> 00:38:31.500 Frank R. Harrison: Well, I definitely like what I've heard in terms of possible diagnosis and treatments and cures for things like cancer and epilepsy. I know I was a big proponent of Mrna vaccines. Now, that isn't AI, but it is genetic code. It's not like the typical flu shot with dead virus, you know, and it worked.

00:38:31.500 --> 00:38:50.660 Frank R. Harrison: you know whether people believe it or not. I don't get into that debate. You just present the information, though people make their own a determination. Yeah. And and of course I designed the shows accordingly, with multiple topics, so that you could tune into the ones you like, and sure discard the ones you don't, you know, but in turn, in terms of

00:38:50.660 --> 00:39:03.820 Frank R. Harrison: AI, I mean, there's the controversy there, too, where sometimes it gives you misinformation. But again, what are you using it for using it for? To write a paper? Or are you using it for a clinical purpose? I think that because of laws like hipaa

00:39:03.820 --> 00:39:30.320 Frank R. Harrison: as well as whatever other regulations that exist in healthcare, AI is, gonna be much more advocated when there are regulations around it. So for that reason alone, I believe in AI for healthcare purposes. I just wanna see some results. I guess I think we will sooner than we expected. I remember seeing an episode on TV and 60 min, or something like that where they talked about. Is it, Edison? Which is this huge AI computer

00:39:30.670 --> 00:39:51.590 Frank R. Harrison: that I and I may have that wrong Edison Home healthcare, but I'm not sure if it's the same. Well, there, there is a name for this particular program, and but the point I remember them making is that it has absorbed the information in more textbooks.

00:39:51.590 --> 00:40:02.739 Frank R. Harrison: then all the doctors in the world could possibly absorb. And so the information there and then, as you say, being able to access it

00:40:02.880 --> 00:40:17.859 Frank R. Harrison: can be very, very exciting to look forward to that aspect of AI. Oh, yeah. And and the thing that makes me agree with a AI as an alternative to a collective group of doctors and other medical practitioners is basically

00:40:18.260 --> 00:40:41.170 Frank R. Harrison: the fact that you know, you can have a hundred doctors in a room, and they may be able to absorb all that information. But still it's only in chunks, in various people with still chunks missing where the computer has everything in its database. So it's gonna give you the cohesive picture. So AI can work with us, not against us, not above us, not below us. I think that because of the nature of

00:40:41.440 --> 00:40:50.730 Frank R. Harrison: oh, like we call, we talked about early, the medical profession versus medical industry or healthcare industry. because we are better off when we're healthy.

00:40:50.810 --> 00:40:56.789 Frank R. Harrison: The only reason for the profess for the profession is when we're not so you can't use human bias

00:40:56.870 --> 00:41:18.029 Frank R. Harrison: to help cure human diseases. You need the breath and and magnitude of technology to incorporate into the human mind and intelligence, and, of course, biases and give the big picture and come up with the solutions quicker. I think, when it's work worked in an integrated fashion. That's when AI definitely is going to

00:41:18.070 --> 00:41:44.470 Frank R. Harrison: help us by leaps and bounds. Do we have time to hear about one other favorite episode? Well, we're just talking about one indirectly. That's an episode I did last year with Mr. Ben Lidl, who did a book called The Potentialist, and that was at the end of 2022, around Thanksgiving time a year ago, and we were talking about how all of us right now are looking at new technologies as a way to living our lives with better healthcare.

00:41:44.470 --> 00:42:01.929 Frank R. Harrison: He didn't dub it as AI, but I knew that was the advent of it. And now it's become more visible in the media and in public life. So I consider that a favorite episode, because I have been trying to get him back on this show so he can talk about his second book, which I think he just finished in October. I don't even know what the title is.

00:42:01.930 --> 00:42:26.050 Frank R. Harrison: but he's been so busy on his own tour with other Podcasts that are interviewing, and they're on networks like Cnn. And stuff like that. So if I do get him back in the New Year, that'll probably about 3 to 6 months from now what we shall see. Well, that's the next thing I wanted to get into, and I don't know like I said, you know the timing better than I do, but I would love to talk about what you see in the future

00:42:26.050 --> 00:42:46.340 Frank R. Harrison: for Frank about help. So what are some of the topics that you want to tap into. Do you have some guests in mind that you're hoping to get on the show? Yes, I do. In fact, there's one who's right now helping us produce this show. But I'm not sure. Just chat away if you want Logan, if you want me to mention it now, or if I should just table it.

00:42:46.340 --> 00:43:07.539 Frank R. Harrison: But at the same time I'm looking, as I said, to bring back you. I'd like you to come back as well. We did. Even mentioned that I'd like to have probably a monthly tribute of whatever the healthcare awareness month is, and we would just talk about it the events that are in the media and bring clarity to my listeners and viewers. I definitely am looking forward to having Ruth, the grey comeback.

00:43:07.590 --> 00:43:24.419 Frank R. Harrison: At the same time, Danielle Swanson and I have already had a conversation that maybe will fuse our podcast together. I don't know if because of AI and technologies that talk radio has been able to bring into the forefront. I'll probably be able to even show tribute episodes of

00:43:24.440 --> 00:43:46.530 Frank R. Harrison: guests that have been here 5 to 7 times, and we'll show segments of each one. But I used to do something called lessons learned like when I did my first 10 episodes. I had a lessons learned show then I did my first 50, and then no, no, I figure they have to be clustered in relevant categories. Covid, believe it or not, is no longer a main issue.

00:43:46.560 --> 00:43:54.750 Frank R. Harrison: We have our little outbreaks here and there. We all know we either deal with it or we don't. But when we I think you were telling me earlier, you've heard of Rsv.

00:43:54.760 --> 00:44:06.330 Frank R. Harrison: I don't know much about it. I don't, either. But I hear commercials for it. And yeah, just haven't paid a lot of attention. And I know there's a vaccine out there for it.

00:44:06.330 --> 00:44:31.610 Frank R. Harrison: So maybe we need need to pay more attention. I don't know, but I do notice the sun is going down and we're ready. A really cool view behind you that lights are coming on in the high rises makes for a beautiful, beautiful skyline absolutely, and it makes room for our final break. So, ladies and gentlemen, please stay tuned. Then we will wrap up this episode of Frank about health. See you soon.

00:46:30.820 --> 00:46:47.189 Frank R. Harrison: everybody what you just saw during the commercial break was where we've been. We've been here at Hilton, grand vacations at the magnificent Mile and Double Tree Hotel again. I can't wait to have my free cookies. But this is a combination hybrid hotel

00:46:47.190 --> 00:46:54.589 Frank R. Harrison: that allows people who are timeshare owners as well as those that are regular tourists or members of the Hilton honors program to stay here.

00:46:54.590 --> 00:47:18.439 Frank R. Harrison: Work here. I mean, there's a whole business centre here. I was hoping to do my show from there, but you know what I'm just glad to be in the comfort of the beautiful Medical Center behind me. Now we have good lighting in the room, so we can wrap up the show nicely, with some final questions that Karen has for me, and also to let you know again, more about her and her practice, and how you can get involved, and also to wrap up for the rest of the hours, so

00:47:18.520 --> 00:47:40.610 Frank R. Harrison: that, all being said, I'm ready for those final questions. Starting with the last one. You asked me the last 10, before the break, what you were looking forward to presenting in terms of topics or guests in the future, as we, especially as we go into 2024. Yes. Well, I definitely am looking to bring back those particular guests that had an impact on me and doing the show.

00:47:40.610 --> 00:47:53.299 Frank R. Harrison: I wanna bring back Phyllis Quinlan. She was my co-host, but then she had to leave because she was working on her book, and she also has a very big coaching practice of her own. But

00:47:53.300 --> 00:48:21.439 Frank R. Harrison: she was there for me to help enhance the medical credibility. Well, she is a professional nurse and executive coach and trainer for people in the medical profession. She works for a hospital system in the city, and she's tried her best to be an advocate as well, and at that time, when I was starting Frank about health, I really didn't have any medical credibility. I'm not a doctor. I'm a patient of epilepsy.

00:48:21.440 --> 00:48:45.170 Frank R. Harrison: but at the same time I was just advocating for my father and my cousin, so I was trying to share a little those tidbits. My academic background is, I've been, I have a master's degree in neuroplogy, and I did an entire thesis upon graduation that had to do with epilepsy and its relationship to depression and anxiety. So all I learned from them from the social variables that I could equate

00:48:45.170 --> 00:48:52.709 Frank R. Harrison: is that an epileptic's patients of quality of life is always at risk in a question, and that inspired me to do the show.

00:48:52.710 --> 00:49:10.930 Frank R. Harrison: It also inspired me to potentially write a book also, which I what had never really gotten the chance to do. Maybe maybe this, maybe this can turn into a book of source. But I already had the title in my mind all these years, and it still exists. It's called perception is everything, because perception is not the reality.

00:49:10.930 --> 00:49:29.930 Frank R. Harrison: but it's what everybody believes well, and that you said you wanted to talk a little bit more about what I do, and that is exactly what I do is I help. If they've been dealing with an issue for a long time and haven't been able to resolve it. The first thing we do in hypnosis is, we go back and find out.

00:49:30.040 --> 00:49:31.950 Frank R. Harrison: Where did the belief?

00:49:32.030 --> 00:49:39.310 Frank R. Harrison: Where was it formed? Right, that has impacted what they're dealing with? And it can be shocking

00:49:39.510 --> 00:49:45.869 Frank R. Harrison: that and and when they're when they become aware of it, I don't need to believe that anymore.

00:49:45.960 --> 00:50:07.810 Frank R. Harrison: And when you reach that point, and then we can get rid of it. You don't have to sit in a therapist office for years or months, but we can change beliefs very, very quickly. What I'm trying to do is similar to what you're doing, which is for us to own our own healthcare issue, sure and know that even if we're not getting all the information

00:50:07.810 --> 00:50:33.810 Frank R. Harrison: through our own research, maybe, or by watching the show, get some insight as to what we can test or try out, while at the same time continuing to work with. Dr. We don't wanna be in the passive position. We never gonna have any right, right? Absolutely. You know. I think Covid taught that to all of us. Well, getting back to the show. And you starting this show 100 episodes ago over some of the challenges that you face.

00:50:34.040 --> 00:50:36.480 Frank R. Harrison: Well again. How credible was I

00:50:36.520 --> 00:50:47.760 Frank R. Harrison: other than being an epileptic patient? I. The challenge I faced was sustaining the show beyond the 13 episodes I did the first time, or the sorry 12 episodes.

00:50:47.760 --> 00:51:10.330 Frank R. Harrison: or even a full 6 months. Because while I'm hearing in the media all about other illnesses and other issues, the best people to talk about it are the medical professionals and researchers and diagnosticians and other people with licenses to be able to also verify things rather than put myself at a risk of a libel suit or some other kind of misinformation.

00:51:10.490 --> 00:51:33.680 Frank R. Harrison: My challenge was what we've all been faced with, which is not being a company, that I am not a company. I'm sorry. A. Podcast. That is giving misinformation. It's called frank about health. How am I gonna be frank about it? If I'm giving you, you know, displaced information. So II think I resolved that challenge, obviously with specific key guests that I mentioned earlier.

00:51:33.750 --> 00:51:44.459 Frank R. Harrison: But I also worked with my lawyers, and I created a company that to manage my intellectual property, which includes the show. And it's now it's officially called Health E media.

00:51:44.640 --> 00:51:57.370 Frank R. Harrison: healthy media, but immediate electronic media. So since I'm a podcast it consists of a project. I'm currently working in working on which is gonna be a documentary.

00:51:57.740 --> 00:52:07.839 Frank R. Harrison: It consists of working with Hilton hotels that they themselves did turn their hotels into essential worker hotels when they had the Maui fires recently

00:52:07.860 --> 00:52:19.419 Frank R. Harrison: not, Hilton, but they do have a property in Maui that was not touched, but they reached out to me as an owner that I'm I'm partners with

00:52:19.690 --> 00:52:47.300 Frank R. Harrison: to see what? How I could use the show as a fundraiser for the valley victim. But I'm not in that in that level yet. But my, my, my, my, my my membership and association with Hilton was upgraded in September. I think I'm being prepared for that. So for that reason alone, by doing the projects I'm working on between now, and let's say February or March. I hope to get back to those people in Maui at Hilton, and work with the Hilton foundation

00:52:47.420 --> 00:52:54.650 Frank R. Harrison: to help use this platform, which has been so good to me. The past 100 shows, but for even greater good.

00:52:54.700 --> 00:53:06.829 Frank R. Harrison: Well, certainly sounds like you have put the steps in place to make that happen. No question about it. Yes, but I definitely am still looking for the right team of people to make sure that

00:53:07.010 --> 00:53:13.199 Frank R. Harrison: it does not fall away by previous ventures have. So that's part of the challenge. And why

00:53:13.350 --> 00:53:34.999 Frank R. Harrison: working with Karen Ross and her hypnotherapy is helping me and mapping out my future instead of delving into the delving into the past. So II think this is where another reason why I consider you the best person to be on my 100 show, because obviously, I plan on continuing working with you in various capacities.

00:53:35.000 --> 00:53:44.949 Frank R. Harrison: Fabulous, I look forward to that. Yes, what do you think are going to be some of the major healthcare issues that we're gonna be facing

00:53:44.950 --> 00:54:03.909 Frank R. Harrison: as we go into? We've talked about AI becoming more of a factor. But are there particular health issues, as maybe as we have? An aging population, or some of the other things that are factoring into our healthcare as far as the aging population is concerned.

00:54:04.040 --> 00:54:11.949 Frank R. Harrison: and what seems to be a resistance to technology period, whether it's AI or mobile phones. Yeah.

00:54:12.530 --> 00:54:20.720 Frank R. Harrison: I think the challenge in health care for seniors is gonna be on the caregiver's shoulders. I think it's the caregivers.

00:54:20.870 --> 00:54:26.190 Frank R. Harrison: and maybe even the you know, the doctors that are working with them.

00:54:26.450 --> 00:54:30.369 They're gonna be faced with trying to offer them solutions that they may not want to take.

00:54:30.750 --> 00:54:44.400 Frank R. Harrison: you know. But I think the immediate challenge I see, for the majority of the population is going to be in the area of mental health. Mental health is, I mean, aside from therapy and hypnotherapy and other things.

00:54:44.450 --> 00:55:06.249 Frank R. Harrison: I think a lot of us are gonna be taking years before we truly recover from the effects of what the COVID-19 pandemic created on our mental health. I think social media, if it's used right, can help. But there are platforms out there. Yeah, that that are aggravating it. And it's done. It's damaged particularly. They're the opposite the young people.

00:55:06.250 --> 00:55:18.169 Frank R. Harrison: Yeah, they have been so impacted. I mean, they come to the point where they believe whatever they see on on their phone and really become misguided.

00:55:18.470 --> 00:55:22.599 Yeah, if if they don't have a parent that is really paying attention

00:55:22.720 --> 00:55:49.450 Frank R. Harrison: to what's happening. That's why we hear about some of the youth suicides. And and I think that is going to become a very, very big factor. Yeah, I mean, the way I look at it is this, I figure I've been already able to spin off my epilepsy component of my show by having Jeff Demetri come in about once a month and talk about his stages of epilepsy platform. So maybe that's what I will have to do in the coming year. As we face these new healthcare channels.

00:55:49.450 --> 00:55:53.440 Frank R. Harrison: Challenges which is not spin-off shows.

00:55:53.440 --> 00:56:15.729 Frank R. Harrison: Maybe I could help produce a show on the network that focuses on senior health care. Let's say, or something like that. But at the same time I know Matthew Asbell, who has intangified we've done cross promotional work in the past. We've talked about possibly featuring a guest that has both a healthcare business and a healthcare problem that could be looked on on both sides the professional and the clinical.

00:56:15.730 --> 00:56:27.499 Frank R. Harrison: I think it's gonna be an issue for me to take the show in a incubator position. And what I mean by that is not only continue to have new guests and new topics brought out.

00:56:27.500 --> 00:56:39.779 Frank R. Harrison: but also be reflective and mindful of the other platforms that are growing like in AI that need to be supported, or probably do what I can to

00:56:39.920 --> 00:57:02.819 Frank R. Harrison: spin off specific segments to the younger set. So it's gonna be more of a marketing challenge for me in the New Year. Do you ever reach out to your listeners and ask for their feedback as to what they'd like to hear? I do that mainly through social media group emails, through my website, or even on Youtube or or Linkedin. But

00:57:03.100 --> 00:57:25.759 Frank R. Harrison: that's unfortunate. I didn't get that much. I will say that I've gotten a response mainly from specific Co host that have been on the show like I mentioned Phyllis Quinlan, and obviously Rita Gray. And then, of course, Jeff Dimitrack, I'll get comments from them. And then I can say within the talk radio that Nyc family we have our monthly host meeting

00:57:25.760 --> 00:57:34.010 Frank R. Harrison: been able to meet new people there that are interested in participating in the show and me helping them as well with whatever they're working on. So

00:57:34.010 --> 00:57:58.900 Frank R. Harrison: I think I'm just gonna continue to be loyal to the network and to the program and do what I can to continue advocating, especially in the coming year. Now we all know the 2024 is also presidential election. Exactly. So. I think I'm gonna do III again. II shy away from the political realm for a lot of legal and and mental health reasons.

00:57:58.900 --> 00:58:06.369 I will do what I can to bring as much frankness and transparency and truth

00:58:06.370 --> 00:58:13.599 Frank R. Harrison: to the topics that we discuss in the future. Well, and as we're listening to candidates, talk about some of the health issues

00:58:13.930 --> 00:58:24.309 Frank R. Harrison: that's going to give you some something to talk about. As to what are some of the needs that the candidates are discovering? Is there out there campaigning?

00:58:24.340 --> 00:58:48.389 Frank R. Harrison: Yeah. So there could be some really interesting topics. This next, I think, having you on the show once a month, let's say we. We'll talk about whatever the awareness month is, it'll be like a view format of sorts. We won't always be in the same room depending on where we but we'll be able to keep us a storyline going on during the campaign year, and at the same time I will continue to be loyal to the listeners that have been

00:58:48.610 --> 00:59:00.450 Frank R. Harrison: watching all 100 shows. And my email is Frank R. Harrison, right to me anytime you want to. I'm I'm not serious. I have all my emails coming in and all my devices.

00:59:00.740 --> 00:59:21.420 Frank R. Harrison: you know. And I will also have my website more refreshed in the New Year. It's Frank R. I have my new website being created So all of my other projects, including the podcast, will be archived and I'll be more interactive, and I'll hopefully be more visible on on other platforms. Besides

00:59:21.420 --> 00:59:42.269 Frank R. Harrison: what I've been doing for 100 shows. So I plan to be there doing a lot of good planning. So we're probably coming up close to the end of the hour. Yes, we are. In fact, I think we only have a minute left. So, ladies and gentlemen, thank you for being here 100 episodes later deep, and all my reruns in between.
