A New Podcast "My Stories...Chapters and Challenges" inspired by the book "Call To Witness"
An exciting new Podcast "My Stories....Chapters and Challenges" inspired by the Pulitzer nominated book "Call To Witness" hits the waves March 14th, 2016
Gil Coronado of CILA llC Management is representing Jane Gagliardo and Sherry Blackman in this podcast series. "'When I heard of Jane’s story, read the book, and spoke with her personally, I knew I wanted to represent the book and the woman it was written about. I knew the podcast would be a way to engage new media and to reach a wider audience. Jane is a multi-faceted woman whose personality will shine, whose story will engage, and whose philanthropy will resonate with listeners," says Gil Coronado, president of CILA LLC Management. “Call to Witness is truly a David and Goliath story that is just fascinating and beautifully written."
Jane Gagliardo knows all too well about overcoming challenges. In 1996 she was wrongfully terminated from her job for having Multiple Sclerosis. She sued Big Pharma and won. Her landmark case changed the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Now those who suffer a disability are protected from becoming throwaway employees. With attorney Patrick Reilly at her side, Jane stood up not only for herself, but for all those who suffer dehumanization due to their disability.
"Call To Witness is an important story that will empower others to stand up for themselves even if it means standing alone. The Podcast will allow others to witness Jane’s fire and passion for justice. Her courage is contagious,”
Since its 2013 release, Blackman and Gagliardo have been interviewed on NPR, and dozens of other national radio shows. They were also featured on Fox News with Dr. Manny Alvarez. The 5-star rated book continues to be on Amazon’s top 100 books for Constitutional Law and Discrimination, and Disability.
Call to Witness belongs on the big screen, says Jane Gagliardo. “This story deserves a larger audience. People everywhere are suffering and they need to witness for themselves the power of doing the right thing.”
“My Stories… Chapters and Challenges” is another venue to get the word out. The podcast will spotlight guests, a round table discussion,and music that is sure to inspire.
