This Is What Happens When You SPEAK UP w/Kid Carson EP 356

Kid Carson has been a Candian radio personality for decades now famously known for his show on the Vancouver radio station, Z95.3. Through the Covid-19 pandemic, Kid felt an internal battle to follow his intuition and speak the truth about all that was going on in the world rather than go with public opinion.

Taking the leap of faith, he stepped away from his radio show to launch his podcast, Kid Carson Show and began to build a tribe of people that resonated with his message across the nation and soon went global.

Lance and Kid talk about all that is going on in the world today and how it is so important for people to not just go with the flow but to live in truth and authenticity.

Lance Essihos

As an experienced veteran with adversity, Lance has faced some of life's most difficult challenges. Grinding his way through the hockey ranks to traveling the world as a bartender. Through his personal battle with drugs and alcohol for well over a decade, the tragic loss of his brother to suicide followed by the great loss of his father to cancer only a year later, Lance realized he had hit rock bottom. In the darkest of days, he made a promise to himself that he would create a new life, one that would make an impact and inspire the masses, leaving the world in a better place than he found it. Lance has made it his mission to facilitate the message of positive change through adversity and encourage people to see the light through the darkness of life's worst moments.
