One of the most powerful forms of healing is peer support -- receiving advice and encouragement from someone who truly understands what you’ve been through because they’ve been through it, too. Our guests today live by that philosophy. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Society, or LEGS, says it provides "resources and emotional peer support for gentlemen who are diversely abled." We hear from LEGS co-founder Calvin Mitchell and current president Bong DelroSAHRio, and member Derrick Waters. Original air date 2.1.18
