Hosted by Laura Cathcart Robbins, a writer and a recovery thriver and survivor, Laura found herself in an all too familiar position. In September 2018, she was the only black woman in the room at Brave Magic, a famed writer’s retreat. After it was over, she wrote about her “only one” experience in The Huffington Post and comments started flooding into her DM. These comments were from people from all races, ethnicities, creeds, and nationalities who had felt “othered”. Laura beautifully interviews a person about their Only One story each episode and addresses as many of those DM’s as possible in the process. In this podcast, you’ll hear raw, vulnerable accounts from people who are, like most of us, just eager to connect. Our hope is that The Only One In The Room will inspire a change of perspective in how we all see and hear each other’s stories. We want you think twice before judging the person standing next to you at a party, in the pick-up line at school or in a crowded subway car. This is a podcast for anyone who has ever felt alone in a room full of people – which is to say, that this podcast is for everyone.

Picture this: You are a child, only eight years old, and because the court won't allow your parents in with you, you enter a courtroom alone, to testify against the grandfather who molested you. Kelly Wallace, Writer, memoirist, and co-host of the Zoom reading series, Voices Of Survivors, remembers seeing the bailiff with his gun and thinking, “that's the man that will take my grandfather away.” But what would you do if your perpetrator was acquitted and even your own father didn't believe you? Would you spend the rest of your life hating and resenting men? Or would you create a platform to give people a space to voice their own stories of survival?

    Can you imagine what it'd be like to watch the sunset, or a football game, or even take a picture, knowing that it would be the last time that you could see what was in front of you? Author and inspirational speaker, Chad Foster, was just three years old when he was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa, a disease that gradually robs you of your eyesight. Twenty years later, he was self-medicating with alcohol, riddled with embarrassment, depression and grief about going blind and thinking that his life was over. But what would you do if you'd decided that feeling sorry for yourself wasn't how you wanted to spend the next fifty or so years? Would you cower from a future that was too scary to imagine? Or would you transform yourself from “poor me” to a leader that inspires others to improve their vision?

    I love this story and was particularly in awe of the plain and beautiful way Mr. Shompole Ole Leroka brings us into what it was like to grow in Maasailand, Kenya in the 1930s and 40's.. Dare to Defy captures the efforts of an individual in Africa as he breaks the constraints of ethnic traditions and carves a path for himself in a fast-changing world. Told in a detailed, humorous and captivating manner, the memoir traces the life of Shompole Ole Leroka as he moves from a pastoralist base by the Shompole Hills on the Kenya-Tanzania border, to Kiserian, a fast-urbanizing setting in independent Kenya. It is a story about relationships, betrayal, love, education, diligence and ambition; an engaging narrative of the pleasure of parenthood, the joys of community life, the value of land, the making of a nation and the effects of globalization on individuals and on the Maasai community.

    Orlando “Ori” Spado is best known as The Hollywood Mob Boss and we were lucky enough to interview him (episode 106, The Only Accidental Gangster In The Room). You'll want to hear him tell this particular story in his own words (and voice) but I had to read it to you because I love it so much.  Orlando (Ori) Spado sold insurance for the Prudential Insurance Company where he was a leading agent for years. Eventually, he moved to Beverly Hills, California where he became known as a Hollywood fixer doing favors for A-list celebrities and others. People referred to him as the Hollywood Mob Boss. In 2008 he was arrested at his home in Beverly Hills and brought to Brooklyn on a Colombo crime family RICO indictment. Ori finished his time at the U.S. Federal prison in Lompoc and returned to Beverly Hills, where he is involved in a few film projects and other legitimate businesses. His critically acclaimed book, The Accidental Gangster, is the true story of his life, he lived it, he owns it and takes full responsibility for his actions of the past.

    Peter Sage's story is so incredible that we made his episode our season 10 finale The Only One In The Room Who Was Grateful To Be Imprisoned (Episode 99). Please don't forget to go back and listen to his incredible interview after you hear today's reading of two excerpts from his best-selling book, The Inside Track. Peter Sage was sent to the most violent prison in the UK as the only non-criminal prisoner. Instead of playing the victim, he chose to identify as a ‘secret agent of change'. He went from mentoring frustrated billionaires to transforming the lives of his prison inmates. He wrote letters to his supporters documenting his entire experience which later became an award-winning book ‘The Inside Track'. Peter is a 6 time TEDx speaker whose multiple #1 bestselling books have sold over 150,000 copies in several languages. He's shared the stage with high-profile people such as Sir Richard Branson, former US President Bill Clinton, and many others.
