We’re Not Stumped Podcast Episode 4 with Dan Moses and Jennifer (JJ) Johnson
For the first We’re Not Stumped podcast recorded in person, I had the pleasure of talking with amputees Dan Moses and Jennifer (JJ ) Johnson. It was an unexpected but very welcome surprise to include JJ, as I was originally scheduled to only meet with Dan. But I couldn’t pass up the chance to talk with his “partner in crime” JJ, and she was gracious enough to accept my invitation to be on the podcast with literally only minutes notice. (This explains why I fumble a bit with her name at the beginning).
Dan is a below knee amputee and JJ is an above knee. They both share their stories in this episode. I met Dan at an amputee support group called ‘Lively Limbs’. He stood out to me immediately with his knowledge and his passion to pass his experience on to others. JJ is much the same – and the rapport they have with each other is entertaining. But aside from the fun they have, they both share very important information that can help others who may be in the beginning stages of their own journeys.
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.
