Reel 360 friend, Anthony Gigante, Vice President of Business Development/ TV/ Cinema at PRG has announced the debut of his new podcast.
Our Fighting Spirit is an interview format program that celebrates ordinary people who overcome extraordinary obstacles to accomplish their dreams – for themselves, their children, and their communities.
Gigante tells Reel 360, “Many years ago, during my own personal dark night of the soul, I had a vision to create a podcast that would give voice to those who’ve been in tough circumstances and found a way through it. To provide inspiration and lift for people who think they may never get their dreams off the ground. Our Fighting Spirit features one story after another of remarkable everyday people who made dreams come true in their lives, and how they did it.
“Let’s face it, there are plenty of media outlets for famous people. Our Fighting Spirit is not one of them,” explains host and Brooklyn-born/Los Angeles transplant Anthony Gigante. “We live in a celebrity-obsessed, social media culture, however, we can’t all be famous.
Behind those ‘shiny, happy people’ posts on Facebook, many individuals are battling unbelievable odds just to get by. There’s no doubt, these last two years have been incredibly tough on all of us. This show is about creating community; about sharing hopes and dreams and finding the key to unlocking your inner grit and determination.
Watch the latest podcast as Anthony interviews two sisters Yana and Oksana. Although Oksana is in the US, Yana is in Ukraine during this horrendous time. She shares her story of what it’s like being in a war-torn country, and how she is getting through each day. Watch below:
“Each week, Our Fighting Spirit will interview a brave soul who drew a line in the sand in their personal lives and said, ‘That’s it. I’ve had enough. This is where I make my stand.’ Here are two quotes I love and live by, ‘Boldness has genius, power and magic in it,’ and ‘Fortune favors the brave.’ Our Fighting Spirit presents bold, brave individuals who, against all odds, have managed to find a way to access their unconquerable spirit within.
“In all the interviews I’ve conducted,” says Gigante, “These lessons have emerged. It’s crucial to shut out the negative chatter. Don’t let the naysayers get in your head. Focus only on what YOU can control (your life and your life only.) And most important of all, commit deeply to nurturing your own voice – to discovering your inner fighting spirit! We’re thrilled to have an opportunity to help people change their lives for the better. It’s our hope to inform, entertain, and inspire our listeners to pursue bold dreams and more importantly, to use our platform to find help and assistance for those who need it.”
