Laban Ditchburn shares how asking for help allowed him to overcome childhood challenges and a life of addiction



In this episode, Laban Ditchburn shares how asking for help allowed him to overcome childhood challenges and a life of addiction. 

About Laban Ditchburn:
A child badly affected by divorce and dysfunction, Laban sought validation and escapism in all the wrong places. But through self-discovery, not being afraid to ask for help and a ton of hard work, he conquered the full gamut of addictions—alcohol, gambling, sex, drugs and negative self-talk. Today, he defines the word transformation. Six years free of addiction and now having reshaped his body by swapping sixty pounds of body fat with thirty pounds of powerful muscle and bone, he discovered a simple cure for his “incurable” auto-immune disease in the process. By learning and then reverse-engineering the root cause of why he needed to escape, giving up his addictions has been almost effortless. These days he gets his high from ultra-marathons, not taking no for an answer and scouring the planet for the world’s best steak! Now physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally in charge of his own destiny, Laban’s journey continues to inspire those ready to change their life. An exemplar and a revolutionary, he revels in unabashedly sharing what he’s learned: how to conquer the demons you don’t know you have, and how to be unstoppable in getting to where you want to be. Laban’s internationally acclaimed book “Bet on You” is a “can’t put down” must-read with its raw, real, hilarious, and inspiring message of hope. Known affectionately as The World’s Best Courage Coach, Laban shares his life with his smoking hot wife, the bravest person he knows, and the future mother of their children, Anna!

Take 2 Podcast: Student Loan Forgiveness, Bears Ears Lawsuit



Host: Heidi Hatch
Guests: State Auditor John Dougall & Maura Carabello from the Exoro Group

Student Loan Forgiveness:

  • What it does: President Biden’s plan to forgive up to $20,000 for Pell Grant recipients and $10,000 for other student loan holders. Payment pauses continues until end of year.
  • Is it Legal? Last summer House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said President Biden does not have executive authority to issue “debt forgiveness” saying the action would be illegal and it would need an act of Congress.
  • Democrat Chris Pappas of New Hampshire said Wednesday the plan “sidesteps Congress and our oversight and fiscal responsibilities.”
  • Is it fair? Senator Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska) called the order a “scheme” that “forces blue-collar workers to subsidize white-collar graduate students.”
  • Does this fix the higher ed cost problem? Will Universities jack up prices hoping more money is on the way.
  • Will this fan and feed inflation: More money flowing with 40-year high inflation
  • Will this change any votes for the midterm? A blue wave in thanks to Democrats and Biden fulfilling a campaign promise.

Bears Ears Lawsuit: The state is suing the Biden administration over the President’s restoration of the original boundaries of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase Escalante National Monuments. The monuments were downsized by former President Trump in 2017.

Lieutenant governor will not remove state lawmaker from ballot: Utah Lt. Gov. Deidre Henderson said she will not remove the newly named head of the Department of Natural Resources from the ballot where he remains a candidate for the House of Representatives.

In a letter Wednesday, Henderson told attorneys for the Utah Democratic Party and legislative candidate Josh Hardy there is “no statutory basis” for removing Rep. Joel Ferry (R-Brigham City) from the ballot in the House District 1 race.

“At this time,” Henderson wrote, “whether or not Mr. Ferry remains on the ballot is entirely up to him.”

Utah Gerrymander lawsuit moves forward: State attorneys sought delay until the Supreme Court decides if states can hear such challenges.

How the WIC Program can help your family



WIC supports lower income families with over four decades of proven success by improving health outcomes for women, infants and children. WIC is a supplemental nutrition program designed to help pregnant women, new mothers, and children under the age of 5 eat well and stay healthy.

Jade Elliott sat down with JoDell Geilmann-Parke, WIC Outreach Coordinator for Salt Lake County Health Department, on this episode of the Baby Your Baby Podcast to discuss the program and upcoming changes.

Foods that meet high nutrition standards can be purchased with WIC grocery vouchers at a variety of participating stores. These foods vary depending on an individual’s nutrition needs but may include infant formula and cereal, a large selection of fruits and vegetables, eggs, milk, cheese, peanut butter and whole grains.

In addition to food vouchers, WIC provides nutrition education and extensive breastfeeding support to participating families. WIC strives to reduce health disparities in the community by encouraging healthy eating habits, providing access to healthy foods, and promoting breastfeeding as the optimal source of nutrition for infants.

WIC services are currently reaching less than 40% of eligible individuals in Utah.

The big news for 2020 is that Utah WIC is converting from paper vouchers to smart cards and will be available throughout the state at all county health departments by the end of the year. E-WIC will streamline the shopping and checkout process and make using WIC easier for participants. WIC has also modernized their website to include a client portal and created a WIC Shopper APP to make WIC services more accessible.

There are income eligibility requirements to participate in WIC. You can visit https://wic.utah.gov/ to check eligibility and find out how to apply or call 1-877-WICKIDS.

The Baby Your Baby program provides many resources for all pregnant women and new moms in Utah. There is also expert advice from the Utah Department of Health and Intermountain Healthcare that air each week on KUTV 2News.
