Thrive: Mental Health and the Art of Living Free

Jan 13, 2023

If you are struggling with disappointment and devastation,  this episode is for you! It’s easy to get stuck in the blame or shame game when things don’t go as planned. It’s common for disappointment to morph into despair. 

Today’s guests, Fox and Rob Richardson, are no strangers to devastation and setbacks. 

Fox & Rob Richardson, subjects of the Academy-Award-nominated documentary TIME, defied all statistics and are happily married after being separated for 21 years due to an overzealous prosecution. In his twenties, Rob was fighting to get his business off the ground and was turned down by every bank for a loan. In desperation to provide for their growing family, he attempted to rob one. Rob was sentenced to 61 years in prison with no priors, leaving Fox to raise their sons alone and fight for her husband’s freedom.

Rob served over two decades in America's bloodiest penitentiary, Angola, until receiving clemency in 2018. Fox and Rob now spend their time advocating for incarcerated families where they have the vision to change lives and laws through love. 

In this episode, we discuss the following: 

  • Ways to cultivate perseverance and tenacity
  • How your circumstances don’t define you
  • The power of your words
  • Practical steps for moving forward when you feel stuck
