On May 7th and 8th, experts from government, industry, small business, and academia will come together in Washington, D.C., for the 2024 Humans to Mars Summit focused on sending humans to Mars.

The event, the largest such gathering on earth, is being organized by Chris Carberry, the CEO and Co-Founder of Explore Mars Inc.,  a nonprofit dedicated to fostering a permanent human presence on the Red Planet no later than 2033.

Once the province of science fiction, Chris says a Martian colony is inevitable, and there are ample opportunities right now for entrepreneurs and independent businesses to climb aboard.

Chris is the author of The Music of Space: Scoring the Cosmos in Film and Television and Alcohol in Space: Past, Present and Future. 

Before joining Explore Mars, he served as Executive Director of The Mars Society

The countdown to an out-of-this-world adventure has begun. Listen now for your ticket to ride. 

Monday Morning Radio is hosted by the father-son duo of Dean and Maxwell Rotbart.

Forty years ago, when Lori Poland was only three years old, she was kidnapped from her front yard, molested, and left for dead at the bottom of a remote mountain outhouse.

By chance, after three days, a bird watcher answering the call of nature heard the little girl whimpering 12 feet below. “What are you doing there?” he called down. “I live here,” the confused child answered.

Today, married with children of her own, Lori is co-founder and chief executive officer of the National Foundation to End Child Abuse and Neglect, or EndCAN. As host and award-winning author Dean Rotbart notes, Lori is also a striking example of how it’s possible to give meaning to life’s misfortunes and build a purpose-driven career.

Listen in as Lori shares her unique approach for turning adversity — regardless of the source —  into strength.

This week’s edition of Monday Morning Radio tells the remarkable story of Genesee Fire Rescue (GFR), a little volunteer engine company that could, and has, for five decades.

Located in the majestic foothills of the Rocky Mountains, 20 miles west of downtown Denver, the unincorporated community of Genesee is home to approximately 4,000 residents and 1,500 homes. 

Monday Morning Radio host Dean Rotbart spent 18 months chronicling GFR’s half-century evolution, growing from a three-person company of well-intended amateurs into a force of 40 of the most professional, well-equipped volunteer firefighters in Colorado. 

Dean’s new book, Dedication And Service: 50 Years on Call with the Volunteers of Colorado’s Genesee Fire Rescue, is available now on Amazon. The book is co-authored by GFR Lieutenant Hank O’Brien.

The odds of a small enterprise surviving for 50 years are minute — fewer than one in a hundred. That’s even truer when the organization's employees are volunteers who regularly risk their lives to provide a free service to their local community.

“Why do the volunteers do it?” Dean asks. “They get paid nothing for the hundreds of hours that many of them devote each year to training and service. They put life and limb at risk. They witness injuries and tragedies that, once seen, can never be forgotten. They are on perpetual call, often summoned to the station in the dead of night, and in Colorado, at least, asked to perform in blizzards and sub-zero conditions.”

To help explain the commitment of Genesee’s volunteer firefighters, Dean and his son, Monday Morning Radio co-host Maxwell Rotbart, invited two active GFR members on this week’s podcast. 

Jason Puffett joined GFR in 2010 and became its volunteer chief in 2015. Then, in 2017, the elected board that oversees the fire department asked Puffett to guide GFR as its first paid, full-time leader. 

Lt. O’Brien, co-author of Dedication and Service and a certified EMT, is a third-generation firefighter. He joined GFR in 2015 and conducted more than two dozen oral histories with past and current members of the fire department.

Dedication and Service is a poignant celebration of the heroes next door, those ordinary yet extraordinary individuals who show up for their neighbors,” Dean reports. “The half-century legacy of Genesee Fire Rescue is an inspiring testament to the enduring spirit of American volunteerism, a beacon that continues to shine in towns and cities nationwide.”

Host and award-winning journalist, Dean Rotbart, and his multi-talented wife, Talya, recently co-authored a book about two Canadian entrepreneurs, Margaret and Riyaz Adat, who have become global role models for do-it-yourself charitable projects.

The book, Perfectly Ordinary, Yet Extraordinary, recounts how the Adats, an upper-middle-class couple, used determination, focus, love, and limited personal resources to rescue a woebegone school in faraway Arusha, Tanzania, from the brink of collapse.

This week, Margaret and Riyaz join Rotbart to share their experiences and lessons-learned, noting that anyone, no matter their resources, really can make a meaningful difference in the lives of others.

The Rotbarts are donating 100% of the profits from their book, available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble to the students and faculty of the J.K. Nyerere School in Arusha.
