For the 22nd podcast, we are very lucky to get the amazing John C. McGinley. John is an incredible actor who has been in numerous films, TV shows, and on countless stages. If, for some reason, you do not recognize the name, you may remember him from his first film, Platoon.

Or you may know him as the ridiculously funny and irreverent Dr. Cox on the long-running sitcom Scrubs.
But, in the Down syndrome and Disability community, Mr. McGinley has become a fierce advocate and vocal supporter and board member of such organizations as the NDSS, Special Olympics, and now serving on the board of the Global Down Syndrome Foundation. Check out the clip below to here John talk about his mission with the Spread The Word Campaign.
His passion for the Disability Community is recognized immediately in his voice, and we are so pleased he decided to share that as well as some incredible stories about his acting experiences that will leave you very upset this podcast only lasted an hour.
We would like to thank our friends at the Global Down Syndrome Foundation for helping us set up this interview. Enjoy the ride!
