We’re Not Stumped Podcast Episode 1 with guest Nicole Kelly
In the first episode of the We’re Not Stumped podcast, I’m very honored to have Nicole Kelly as a guest. Like me, Nicole is an congenital amputee of an upper extremity. Nicole was Miss Iowa 2013 and competed in the Miss America Contest in 2014 and she talks about that experience in this podcast. Nicole was also featured on the The Today Show as well as countless other shows and platforms. She has a masters degree in broadcast journalism from Northwestern University and and has proudly spoken at hundreds of K-12 schools and given educational lectures at universities across the country. Nicole has spoken at corporations including Google, Microsoft, Allstate, and Riot Games. She now works for Coapt, the maker of Complete Control advanced pattern recognition myoelectric control technology for upper limb prosthetics. In this video she will demonstrate her incredible prosthetic made possible by the great team at Coapt. If you are an amputee, a family member of a person with limb loss or a person in the support community, I would love to have you on the show. Please contact email@example.com to be considered as a guest.
Congenital amputee Mike Bolland interviews other amputees, family members of amputees plus people in the prosthetic / support fields. These interviews are both fun and educational and nothing will be held back - no questions are off limits! Please use our contact form if you would like to be considered as a guest. We'd love to have you!
Season 2 Finale
Season 2 is in the books! In this season two finale episode, I have three main topics:
My thoughts on prosthetics: I am sick of how amputees who choose not to wear prosthetics are treated within the amputee community. I also get disgusted by prosthetic manufactures who dismiss certain people in the community in their sole mission to make a profit off amputees.
Amputee Workouts: I am looking for amputees like you who workout to come on the podcast to share your tips and tricks.
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.
