Katie Duke REVAMPED:

Taking the High Road on Reality-TV

Katie Duke REVAMPED: Taking the High Road on Reality-TV Dr. Seku Gathers

Good People,

Today I’m sharing with you a revamped episode from the very first season of The Truth Prescription: my conversation with my great friend Katie Duke, who is now the host of her own podcast Bad Decisions. Katie and I met back in 2016, and I interviewed her for this podcast in September 2017. We had a lot of fun, but we also tackled some really heavy topics.

Katie’s professional truth stems from her experience working as an ER nurse, featured on NY MED on ABC. We talked about the excitement, drama, embarrassment, and fear from being on this reality TV show, but also about how she got fired – and the truth behind it all. She talks about how getting fired was an incredibly low point in her life, but because she chose to take the high road and eat a slice of humble pie, her character was ultimately strengthened. She also shares a personal truth around finding herself through an abusive mentality and physically abusive relationship, what she’s learned about herself since then, and now how she’s inspiring women around the world via social media.

I hope you enjoy this throwback. So close your eyes and open your ears, and let’s get into it.
