A Wake Up Call

“A Wake Up Call” with Josh and Val Produced by Beating the Odds Foundation

This podcast is a series of inspirational stories and actionable advice from actors, athletes, entrepreneurs, educators, musicians, and everyone in between.

Similar to our Quarterbacks of Life stories shared through our Quarterbacks of Life® Student Success & Leadership Program, “A Wake Up Call” was born when we teamed up with film producer Josh Ortiz. Up to this point in Josh’s filmmaking career, Josh has interviewed hundreds of people, but most of the footage never makes it into a finished video. With the help of his musician wife, Valeri, and the Beating the Odds Foundation, “A Wake Up Call” came to life. We hope you enjoy this platform, where we can share with you stories of never giving up.
