Have you ever wanted to know what it’s like to work with REAL wolves up close? Our guest, Ken Ferber is here to talk about the many years of being a volunteer for a wolf Sanctuary called the Wolf Connection. Wolf Connection is a youth education and empowerment program, with rescued wolves and wolf dogs as the centerpiece. Wolf Connection believes that the deep understanding of our relationships with animals and the environment is paramount in our development as individuals, productive societies, and sustainable civilization on this planet. With the help of the animals, young men and women reconnect with nature, learn to be of service by responsibly caring for another being, and work towards becoming the kind of person they want to be. The animals help them focus on their impulses, feelings and emotions in a constructive way; they learn to forgive and give others (and themselves) a second chance. They also reflect on, and learn about, loyalty, honesty, integrity, courage, contribution to society, commitment, sense of purpose, and self confidence.
Ken Ferber has more than 30 years of expertise in reputation management, CEO branding and crisis communications. He is one of the few executives to lead reputation and communications functions in all three sectors - corporate, government and not-for-profit. He has represented such entities as a multi-billion dollar healthcare company, the Los Angeles Police Commission, and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Ferber is the founder and CEO of Trueify®, which helps professionals develop their unique personal brand and teaches them how to protect their reputation within the social media environment.
TRUEIFY is a family of professional reputation training modules for corporations, executives and recent graduates. TRUEIFY is also a family of “reputation defense” modules, teaching individuals and entities how to protect their reputation in the online and digital world. TRUEIFY trains targeted audiences how to successfully enhance their career path and their company’s reputation by exploiting and manipulating social media.

Shadow Politics is a grass roots talk show giving a voice to the voiceless. For more than 200 years the people of the Nation's Capital have ironically been excluded from the national political conversation. With no voting member of either house of Congress, Washingtonians have lacked the representation they need to be equal and to have their voices heard. Shadow Politics will provide a platform for them, as well as the millions of others nationwide who feel politically disenfranchised and disconnected, to be included in a national dialog.
We need to start a new conversation in America, one that is more inclusive and diverse and one that will lead our great nation forward to meet the challenges of the 21st century. At Shadow Politics, we hope to get this conversation started by bringing Americans together to talk about issues important to them. We look forward to having you be part of the discussion so call in and join the conversation. America is calling and we're listening… Shadow Politics is about America hearing what you have to say. It's your chance to talk to an elected official who has spent more than 30 years in Washington politics. We believe that if we start a dialog and others add their voices we will create a chorus. Even if those other politicians in Washington don't hear you — Senator Brown will. He's on a mission to listen to what America has to say and use it to start a productive dialog to make our democracy stronger and more inclusive. If we are all part of the solution we can solve any problem.
