Surviving multiple gunshots, staying positive, and growing despite tragedy. Allen Parker shares his story.



An intimate conversation between host Jordan Garland and lifelong friends Allen Parker and Averey Smith. Allen was shot multiple times and is currently paralyzed, this is his first time opening up fully to the public about the night it happened, his thought process in surviving, his mindset, and how he plans to overcome his situation. The conversation is the first time we all sat down as friends and discussed everything in detail, so naturally it spans a lot of dark topics and memories, but we felt it was something that would be therapeutic to do for the first time in this manner. This Spooky Hourz Podcast is a time marker for us to look back on and try to understand how to grow past tragedy. Hope you learn something.
