We’re Not Stumped Podcast Episode 5 with guest Gary Weiland
Gary lost the lower part of his left leg in 2018. Since that time, Gary has become a motivational speaker, author, American Ninja Warrior, entrepreneur, and a member of multiple USA Para teams. Even with all of that, he also did what many thought was impossible and went back to work as a firefighter.
His message of ‘Adapt and Overcome’ has become more than a mantra – it’s his inspiring message that has helped others. The children’s books he has written share a message of hope and acceptance, all with a message for young and old alike.
Gary continues to travel the country and share his message. We were very honored to have Gary on our podcast to discuss the many ways he contributes to the amputee community.

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.
