Show Notes


In this episode we speak with Jennifer Soames and she shares her personal story and more unfolds for us Traumatic Brain Injury (T.B.I.)

Do you feel hopeless, frustrated, lost and lonely? You are not alone. Many traumatic brain injury (TBI) survivors struggle with invisible scars like depression, post-concussive syndrome, PTSD, anxiety, insomnia, memory and cognitive challenges, and more that most of the world doesn’t understand. Navigating the road to recovery, healing, and adapting can be lonely, frustrating, and without a lot of clear direction, until now.

Soames shares her own experience from two perspectives: living with a traumatic brain injury herself, and as an experienced licensed holistic health professional. Head of Hope provides anyone affected by TBI, including their families, friends, and caregivers, validation, information, inspiration, useful resources, and hope to help you live your best life, even with a TBI.

Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story - Bono

Bono—artist, activist, and the lead singer of Irish rock band U2—has written a memoir: honest and irreverent, intimate and profound, Surrender is the story of the remarkable life he’s lived, the challenges he’s faced, and the friends and family who have shaped and sustained him.

Narrated by the author, Surrender is an intimate, immersive listening experience, telling stories from Bono’s early days in Dublin, to joining a band and playing sold out stadiums around the world with U2, plus his more than 20 years of activism.

Throughout a remarkable life, music has always been a constant for Bono and in the audiobook, his distinctive voice is interwoven with a very personal soundtrack adding atmosphere and texture to each and every scene. From moments of classic U2 hits to snippets by The Clash, Patti Smith, Verdi, Johnny Cash and Mozart, Surrender also exclusively features clips of newly recorded re imagined versions of U2 songs including ‘Sunday Bloody Sunday’, ‘With Or Without You’, ‘One’, ‘Beautiful Day’ and more, glimpsed for the first time on Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story.
