Make It Or Break It (#111) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

Personal challenges come in all shapes and sizes, from jobs gone bad to dating disasters. And getting beyond them means weathering the storm when things go terribly but hilariously wrong. Michele Carlo turns lemons into lemonade when she gets busted moonlighting during an internship; Matthew Sablan spins a nightmare date into a life lesson and lasting friendships; and powerlifter Mikelina Belaineh Googles her way to combining two worlds that seem impossible to mesh.

Rosanna Salcedo discovers that friendship can cross all kinds of borders. And Jim Stahl loses his eye, but finds himself in the beautiful blue iris of its replacement. Hosted by Theresa Okokon.

It's All Relative (#202) Duration: 26:46 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

And George Vendura pranks his overprotective mother with the help of some red ink. Hosted by Wes Hazard.

Lost & Found Part 2 (#203) Duration: 26:46 STEREO (Secondary audio: none)

In the course of a lifetime, we lose all sorts of things: objects, memories, even people. But sometimes we find things, too. And when this happens unexpectedly, it can seem like a miracle. In Anna Willis-Collier's story, a spilled cup of coffee connects a family separated by time and distance. A long-lost leather jacket connects Scott Schultz to one of his childhood idols. And Ewa Chrusciel loses a sausage to airport security, but discovers a secret history of international lost and found. Hosted by Theresa Okokon.
