The "Money Doctor" TV Show

☞ The "Money Doctor" Radio Show

The Money Doctor TV Show "The Money Doctor" TV Show is an upbeat, and positive, feel-good show not just about debt, but about local business people and individuals who have something to offer by way of their personal stories, and who are generous enough to share that on the air. While we do discuss debt and finances, the topics are almost secondary to the story lines, and are broached as they are involved as an integral part of all of our lives.

Produced by Chris Collins   Hosted by Frances Rahaim, Ph.D.

"The Money Doctor" airs Wednesdays at 1:30PM, Fridays at 8PM, and Saturdays at 1pm on GCTV Channel 15.



Emotional Transition A Journey of the Human Spirit Vincent Interlande Vincent Interlande and The Money Doctor discuss Vincent’s life and the epiphany that lead to the writing and publishing of his aptly named book, “Emotional Transition”. Dr. Rahaim's guest for this episode can be described as one part contractor, one part physical education teacher, a few gray hairs, some major family “challenges”, a lot of self-actualization, the want to help others learn from his personal experience, a little prose, some heartfelt stories, and a pinch of poetry. Stirred, but not shaken; that's Vincent Interlande and that's what you get in his book “Emotional Transition: A Journey of the Human Spirit”.

Jill E. Harrington Hanzalik Foundation When Adam's sister, and closest friend, Jill, died from cancer at a young age, lives were changed indeed. Those who knew Jill agree that she was inspirational to all who came in contact with her. Her optimistic family saw a way to keep Jill's memory and spirit alive, forming the JEHH (Jill E. Harrington Hanzalik) Foundation. In this way, her untimely death became an inspiration, touching the lives of children and helping them realize their dreams. To date, the JEHH Chase Your Dreams program has given more than $180,000 to deserving applicants, with dreams of all types, which may not have been realized without JEHH and its benefactors.
