The Debbie Nigro Show

My shark guy Dr. Gregory Skomal (left) is as famous as the Great White Sharks he tags for The Atlantic White Shark Conservancy. I call him 'my shark guy' because for years he's made sure to be on my radio show every year during 'Shark Week' to share his latest shark science findings, and because we always have a lot of fun on the air together. Dr. Gregory Skomal's the star of many Shark Week shows, and you’ve also probably seen him all over the news recently reporting on the increase of shark sightings and shark attacks near the shores on the East Coast. (Relaxing eh?) So happens the day...

The Debbie Nigro Show

Yellowstone's Open! The WEST won. The floods were tough yes, but Montana folk are tougher.  I honestly can't wait to return to Chico Hot Springs Resort & Day Spa in Pray Montana!  I’d kept owner Colin Kurth Davis’ card that I took off the counter when we checked out back in August 2019. I always meant to call or write him about the magic of his place. I decided to give  him a call this week to ask how things were going out there and if the resort was affected by the floods and could I help in any way.  Boy was he thrilled I called, because yes the floods happened and...

Could a Trainer Be The Difference Between Life & Death? show art Could a Trainer Be The Difference Between Life & Death?

The Debbie Nigro Show

Could a personal trainer be the difference between life and death?  Well If you read the recent study results which said being able to stand on one leg for 10 seconds is tied to whether you’ll live another decade - then possibly yes. Here’s my opinion after exploring one session with kickass superstar HEALTHYFIT personal trainer Cristina Telese. We humans need other humans to push us to accomplish things we can’t seem to on our own. It’s easy to ‘go exercise’ it’s harder to spend that same time really maximizing the effort to get better results out of why the heck we’re...

I was thrilled when she contacted me to tell me 'it saved her' and that her daughter even joined too.   I love when I inspire people to do better for themselves with the information I share....

If you like TV Chef Robert Irvine you’ll really love him for what he’s doing for Veterans as a tireless philanthropic supporter - in tandem with an AMAZING firm on Wall Street called Roberts & Ryan which is a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Broker Dealer that donates 7-10% of their revenue to Veteran Focused non-profits!

One incredible thing they are doing is raising money to be able to give as many wheelchair bound disabled veterans as possible an IBOT. The IBOT is a Personal Mobility device that combines balance and motion to provide a unique eye level experience in mobility. Giving wheelchair bound veterans the ability to climb stairs, reach to the top of kitchen cabinets and much more! This powered wheelchair was developed by Dean Kamen, the inventor of the Segway, in a partnership between DEKA and Johnson & Johnson Technology Division.

Roberts & Ryan President Brian Rathgen and Robert Irvine both joined me to share how they’re both putting their money where their mouth is. 

In Honor of July 4th and in support of all the men and women who have 'served' our country so the rest of us can live free -  I'm posting the entire show today as a podcast. Both guests today are amazing humans. What they are doing for our disabled Veterans is nothing short of incredible. You need to know about them and help in any way youre able to. Even if its just spreading the word.

Roberts & Ryan: A top-tier institutional broker dealer founded by Dan Roberts, a US Marine Corps Vietnam War combat veteran and Purple Heart recipient. Roberts & Ryan, America’s 1st broker-dealer of its kind, attained the minority designation – Service-Disabled Veteran Owned (SDVO) – once it was codified into law.

 In 2017, a group of like-minded Veterans and Citizen Patriots – all experienced Wall Street professionals – bought Roberts & Ryan with the dual mission of doing well – providing great service to their clients, while doing good –supporting our nations Veterans and adult youth in mental health, wellness, and career transition through charitable donations and volunteerism.

Roberts & Ryan now provides agency equity and debt services, distribution of equity and debt capital transactions as co-managers, as well as delivering corporate access events and desk research to our institutional asset managers, banks, family offices, and corporate treasuries. The more bsuiness they do the more revenue they give to the Veterans. 

Robert Irvine: Yes he  is a world-class chef and entrepreneur, but he’ll tell you his true passion is helping veterans and he is a tireless philanthropic supporter of our nation’s military. The host of Food Network’s hit show Restaurant: Impossible, he has given struggling restaurateurs a second chance to turn their lives and businesses around in over 200 episodes and counting.

The Robert Irvine Foundation’s primary focus is giving back and supporting our service members, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need through resiliency, health, and wellness programs, in addition to the financial support of top-rated military and first responder organizations.
