All Roads Lead 65 Max Radio with Pamela Lynnette Henderson
Guests, Mary Beth O'Connor and Therina Blackwell
Unique and unforgettable, TC Blackwell’s whirlwind journey, Hypothetically, plunges readers into stories of the human experience that toggle between provoking powerful emotional responses and peals of laughter. She is neither denying nor confirming that these extraordinary stories actually happened, but if they did, she’s sure lived one heck of an entertaining (if sometimes stressful) life.
TC Blackwell specializes in crafting funny adventures with a heaping dose of romance. She holds a B.A. in Criminal Justice and shares an incredibly unique passion for helping young adults bridge the literacy gap.
She is a fitness guru and lives in Minnesota. In theory she is working on her next novel.
In reality she is possibly at the local gym or watching a comedy movie.
TC Blackwell is working on the next adventures to the sequel releasing soon.
For me, childhood abuse and other traumas led to substance use disorder (addiction).
Beginning with alcohol at age 12, I spent several years abusing various drugs. I found methamphetamine at 16 and started shooting up at 17. I struggled with meth until I was 32 years old.
By incorporating ideas from multiple sources to build a secular (not 12-step or faith based) recovery plan that works for her, I have been sober since 1994. I used similar techniques to address the trauma and related anxiety as well.
I am a Director for LifeRing Secular Recovery and She Recovers Foundation. I speak on behalf of these organizations, about multiple paths to recovery, and about all topics related to substance use disorder and recovery. I can also speak about sexual abuse and rape, child abuse, domestic violence, ptsd, anxiety, and recovering from these as well.
In 2020, I published two opinion pieces about substance use disorder and recovery in major national publications, including a Wall Street Journal op-ed entitled "I Beat Addiction without God."
I have published memoir pieces in various publications. In January, HCI will publish my memoir, "From Junkie to Judge: One Woman's Journey to Recovery without God."
Professionally, 6 years into recovery, I attended Berkeley Law. I worked at a large firm in Silicon Valley, then litigated class actions for the federal government. In 2014, I was appointed a federal Administrative Law Judge, a position from which I retired in 2020. I now focus on my writing and advocacy work.

SUBSCRIBE TO TALK SHOW
All Roads Lead 65 Max Radio hosted By Pamela L Henderson brings you honest discussions and topics about what's real in the world, having open discussions of your ‘Truth’ pertaining to obstacles and challenges that one will either endure over a period of time that has caused hardships and limited resources. Pamela who has overcome Injustice and obstacles on her journey had a vision to help give a platform for young adolescents to speak about how we can together as a diversity culture make our voices heard and be able to move forward through Social Growth. If you take a stance against bullying, you are standing against it. If you take a stance on a contentious issue, it means you believe strongly about it one way or the other. This stance effects everyone, therefore her talk show will allow leaders and the community to be heard, and to heal through the discussions at a happy medium and to suggest solutions or resources to help bandage the wound that needs to heal.
