Episode 15—John Archibald

John Archibald is a columnist for the Alabama Media Group, with his work appearing in the Birmingham News, the Huntsville Times, Mobile’s Press-Register, and its probing social brand, Reckon. Before he began his column in 2004, he worked on the News’ investigative team and has covered everything from crime and punishment to Birmingham City Hall, which is not always the same thing. He grew up in North Alabama and graduated from the University of Alabama in 1986. He is married with three grown children.

Episode 15–Dave Sanderson

Dave Sanderson is an inspirational survivor, speaker and author. His thoughts on leadership have made him an internationally sought-out speaker. When US Airways Flight 1549, or “The Miracle on the Hudson,” ditched into the Hudson River on January 15, 2009, Dave Sanderson knew he was exactly where he was supposed to be.

The last passenger off the back of the plane on that fateful day, he was largely responsible for the well-being and safety of others, risking his own life in frigid water to help other passengers off the plane.

Despite the hazards to himself, Sanderson thought only of helping others and emerged from the wreckage with a mission: to encourage others to do the right thing.
