EPISODE SUMMARY

“If we are training people to shut their feelings off, we owe it to them to show them how to turn them back on.”

This week’s guest is a legit hero. George Faller was born in Queens and served tenure in both the NYPD and the FDNY. He served boldly at Ground Zero on 9/11, showing up not only on his shifts but volunteering as peer support in his off time.
