In the first half, James R. Doty, M.D., the director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education,discussed his journey to find comfort after a difficult childhood and how his life was changed at age twelve when he wandered into a magic shop looking for a plastic thumb.
In the latter half, Kim Russo, known as 'The Happy Medium,' shared how she came to embrace her gift of mediumship, and ultimately accepted her soul's mission as a voice for the spirit world.
I created something that was directly inspired by Coast to Coast. It's a web comic that illustrates "True Encounters with Shadow People." The listeners of the program saw my shadow person drawing posted on the C2C website a while back and sent me their stories, which I illustrated. In this one, a little boy witnesses a shadow person that his Mom and sister cannot see. All seven pages can be view at jamcomics.com.
