One day you’re kayaking in Naragansett Bay, and the next, you’re in a hospital, paralyzed and unable to feel your legs. This is the story of today’s guest, Trent Theroux. It’s a fascinating and inspiring story that Trent describes as his awkward journey to the Ironman”. Suffice it to say that our guest did not languish in his hospital bed for long, and instead turned tragedy into a testament of motivation, strategy, and determination. Listen in!

Trent’s Book: Fillet to Finish


THAT NEWPORT SHOW is a weekly podcast sharing the stories and characters that make Newport, Rhode Island America’s favorite city by the sea.

With each episode, hosts Buck & Helena share their Newport experiences in segments like Dine & Dish, Adventure Island, and Shop Newport.

Buck and Helena are a couple of old punks who survived what they call “the toddler years” (plus a few extra). As they slowly regain their sanity, this smart and silly couple are once again venturing out into the world to get their party on. They may be a bit slower these days, but they are also a lot wiser. And honestly, a lot more fun. Read more about your hosts.

While That Newport Show features a lot of what Newport has to offer both visitors and residents, the essence of show is about two grown-ups who really have no business being grown-ups, and the things they get up to in Newport – as well as at home on their small New England horse farm.

Each week the Sparkle and Boom Podcast Network airs a new episode. You can stream or download episodes from our website, or listen on iTunesGooglePlayStitcher Radio, or your favorite podcatcher app.  We hope you’ll join us!
