Rick Hodes is an American physician who has lived and worked in Ethiopia for over 30 years. Raised in Long Island, he is the Medical Director of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee (JDC) in Ethiopia, a 105-year old NGO. He has been in charge of the health of Ethiopians immigrating to Israel. He has also worked with refugees in Rwanda, Zaire, Tanzania, Somalia, and Albania. 

Currently, he practices in the basement of a busy Addis Ababa hospital, concentrating on spinal deformities, and rheumatic and congenital heart disease. All care is free. Unable to get free surgery for his first spine patients, he adopted them and brought them to the US. A colleague recently said “Rick has the largest collection of the worst spines in the world.” He collaborates with colleagues in Ghana, India, Israel, Germany, and the US. He is also the senior consultant at Mother Teresa’s mission.

Rick is a graduate of Middlebury College and University of Rochester Medical School, and trained in internal medicine at Johns Hopkins Bayview. Hodes first went to Ethiopia as a relief worker during the 1984 famine. He returned there on a Fulbright Fellowship to teach internal medicine at Addis Ababa University, and in 1990 was hired by the JDC to care for 25,000 potential immigrants to Israel. In 1991, he was part of “Operation Solomon,” which airlifted Ethiopian Jews to Israel.  

Rick was a “CNN Hero" in 2007, and was ABC’s "Person of the Week" in 2010. He is the holder of 5 honorary doctorates and has been commencement speaker at Brandeis, and UC Davis and University of Rochester Medical Schools. The American College of Physicians has awarded him “Mastership” and the Rosenthal Award for creative practice of medicine. He has published over 20 papers in medical journals.

He is the subject of the HBO documentary “Making the Crooked Straight,” as well as the book “This is a Soul: The Mission of Rick Hodes” by Marilyn Berger. A recent documentary, "Zemene", highlights the life of a young spine patient and her journey from rural Gondar to Addis Ababa, spine surgery in Ghana, and speaking in New York City.

Rick lives with his family in Addis Ababa. 

On this episode, Rick shares his one way ticket to an Ethiopia where everybody has a straight spine. He also shares his remarkable work in helping those with spinal deformities. Plus, Rick talks about his love of Ethiopia and some of his favorite places to visit in his adopted home country.

In November of 2017, he was re-elected for a second term to represent all of Brooklyn as Borough President. Born in Brownsville and educated in the city’s public school system, Eric is committed to ensuring Brooklyn’s bright future by helping each and every Brooklynite reach his or her full potential.

Eric has worked to make the popularity of Brooklyn’s brand translate into prosperity for the over 2.6 million Brooklynites that call the borough home. He is a big believer in the power of connections, of bringing together people in need of services with resources that have long existed but have been underutilized.

As a legislator, Eric’s record in the New York State Senate was one that underscored his strong commitment to the rights of those from every walk of life, including protecting the right to privacy, supporting marriage equality, defending a woman’s right to choose, as well as fighting for students’ rights, workers’ rights, and animal rights. His work involved efforts to prevent racial profiling, gender discrimination, domestic violence, and elder abuse.

In this episode, Eric shares his one way ticket to ancient Sumer. He also talks about what makes Brooklyn special, his vegan journey, and his plans for the city's highest office.

Michel Behar was born in Amsterdam, and has worked as a tour manager/study leader since 1986. He has a command of 12 languages.

Michel enjoys pioneering and leading people to challenging destinations, mostly in Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa, to prepare new lectures, and document them with photos.

Far flung destinations and the USSR have intrigued Michel since the age of 7, perhaps because his great-grandfather was Vice President of the Communist Party in Amsterdam. If he wasn't participating in one of the Komintern international communist political meetings in Moscow, he was smuggling diamonds on behalf of the broke Soviet regime (as Michel discovered on the front page of a 1920 New York Times when digging in its archives).

Perhaps it was that Soviet connection that led Michel to name his company Stakhanovets, the Russian tongue-in-cheek word for an ambitious worker, inspired by the exemplary Soviet coal miner, Stakhanov.

When leading tours, Michel wears two neckties a day, unless the destination is Afghanistan, Pakistan, Chechnya, Somaliland or Iraq, where it's advisable to keep a low profile. For the record, his favorite ties include his bipolar one with penguins and polar bears, and the other one featuring rubber duckies.

In this episode Michel shares his one way ticket to Uzbek oasis towns during the Islamic Renaissance between the 9th -12th centuries. He also talks about his adventures traveling to far flung lands, and how he navigates speaking 12 languages!

Michel is just one of the superb guests featured on The One Way Ticket Show, where Host Steven Shalowitz explores with them where they'd go if given a one way ticket, no coming back! Destinations may be in the past, present, future, real, imaginary or a state of mind.

Victoria Moran (www.mainstreetvegan.net) is the author of thirteen groundbreaking books about inner and outer wellbeing, and has appeared on The Oprah Show, Today Show, Good Morning America Now, and NPR’s All Things Considered. She’s been an ethical vegan for thirty-five years, maintaining a 60-pound weight loss as a result.

Victoria’s undergraduate thesis in religious studies became the 1985 Compassion the Ultimate Ethic: An Exploration of Veganism – her first book and the first full-length book on vegan philosophy and practice ever to come from an actual publisher. Twelve additional books have followed, including the best-selling Creating a Charmed Life (in 30 languages), the essential vegan weight loss guide, The Love-Powered Diet; the good health/peace-of-mind manual, The Good Karma Diet; and the genre classic: Main Street Vegan, which VegNews magazine called “The Vegan Bible, New Testament,” and which Ellen Degeneres wrote “offers practical advice and inspiration for everyone interested in going vegan, no matter what tax bracket you’re in!” Victoria was assisted on Main Street Vegan by her daughter, Adair, a lifelong vegan who is now an aerial performer, a stuntwoman, and a wildlife rehabilitator.

Victoria has written for Yoga Journal, Mothering, Natural Health, Woman’s Day, Martha Stewart’s Whole Living, Vegetarian Times, VegNews, and The Huffington Post; and her work has been noted in publications included USA Today, The Chicago Tribune, Self, Real Simple, Glamour, Woman’s World, Vegan Health & Fitness, and O the Oprah Magazine. She hosts the weekly Main Street Vegan podcast, recipient of a Vegan Media Outlet 2015 Award. In addition, she has appeared on the covers of Barefoot Vegan and La Fashionista Compassionista magazines, and she was voted Peta’s Sexiest Vegan Over 50 in 2016.

A moving and engaging speaker, a certified holistic health counselor (CHHC, AADP) and graduate of the T. Colin Campbell/eCornell program in plant-based nutrition, Victoria is the founder of Main Street Vegan Academy, training Vegan Lifestyle Coaches and Educators in a boutique program in Manhattan with graduates from twenty-four countries. The program inspired The Main Street Vegan Academy Cookbook, coauthored with JL Fields, which debuted in December 2017 in the number 1 spot in vegetarian diets on Amazon. Victoria is also the producer of A Prayer for Compassion, a documentary from filmmaker Thomas Jackson which will debut this fall with the mission of introducing veganism to people who identify as religious or spiritual. She lives with her husband and their rescue dog, Forbes, and a handicapped rescue pigeon, Thunder, in a LEED-certified green condominium in Harlem.

Ihab Zaki is the President of Spiekermann Travel Service, a Michigan-based travel agency established in the 1940's.

It was only natural that Ihab selected a career in the travel industry. His mother is one of Egypt's top Egyptologists/guides who instilled in her son a love of history and travel. He began his career working in a travel agency in Egypt handling inbound visiting tourists from all over the world.  

After moving to the U.S. and purchasing Spiekermann in 1991, the Cairo native decided to expand the business beyond his familiar Egypt. He began scouting nearby destinations which at the time were obscure and seldom visited by Americans, including Jordan and Syria. It snowballed from there where every year or two he would offer new destinations. 

Today, Spiekermann's repertoire includes adventures to all of the Near East from Morocco to as far as Central Asia, plus the Balkans and little visited countries in East and West Africa and South America.

Spiekermann has established its reputation as being a leading operator of private and group tours to some of the world’s most exotic and least know locations.  Their claim to fame is for running adventures to some of the world’s diciest and scariest destinations. Their clientele has mushroomed through the years with many guests becoming repeat customers.  In fact, a few have even taken 20 or more trips with Spiekermann!

Ihab earned both his B.A. in Economics and his M.A. in Middle Eastern Studies from The American University in Cairo.

In this episode, Ihab shares his one way ticket to continuous travel! In so doing, he talks about journeys to some of the places he'd like to revisit including: Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Armenia, Saudi Arabia, and his native Egypt.

Ihab is just one of the accomplished guests featured on The One Way Ticket Show, where Host Steven Shalowitz explores with his guests where they'd go if given a one way ticket, no coming back! Destinations may be in the past, present, future, real, imaginary or a state of mind.
