We Are Not Stumped Upper Limb Amputee Podcast – J.J. Orsak
J.J. Orsak was living a great life as he was married to his high school sweetheart, had a long time career as an electrician and celebrating a brand-new grandbaby in December 2018. But all of that changed in an instant on December 22. While doing a task he had done countless times, Mr. Orsak’s life changed. A jolt of electricity raced through his body and took both of his hands.
In this episode of the We’re Not Stumped podcast, recorded almost five years to the day of his accident, J.J. and his wife Sharon talk about his journey to again live a great life. His journey wasn’t without challenges, the first being life saving measures. But through it all and with his wife, family and friends by his side, J.J. is prospering again.

Season 2 Finale
Season 2 is in the books! In this season two finale episode, I have three main topics:
1. My thoughts on prosthetics: I’m not a big fan of how amputees who choose not to wear prosthetics are treated within the amputee community. I also get displeased by prosthetic manufactures who dismiss certain people in the community in their sole mission to make a profit off amputees.
2. Amputee Workouts: I am looking for amputees like you who workout to come on the podcast to share your tips and tricks.
3. Calling all guests: Many amputees feel that their story isn’t worthy of sharing. I call BS on that, and I want you on. Now.
