Host: Logan Johnson

Logan was a star football player through high school and college and became tragically paralyzed in a car accident. He was able to go through physical therapy to learn how to walk again and was then drafted by the Seattle Seahawks. Logan now owns a gym in Houston and is a motivational speaker. 

While Logan was a world-class athlete, he learned to read when he was 21 years old. Logan’s teachers allowed him to pass his classes just because he was an athlete. He had one speech teacher who didn’t let him slide through and wanted him to participate and earn his grade. Due to this one teacher pushing him, Logan is now pursuing motivational speaking. 


Host: Liv Harrison

Liv is best known for being a professional speaker and emcee with a gift for humor and storytelling. In May 2019, Liv successfully created and launched the Genius Catholic Women’s Conference. It was produced again in March 2020. Liv is married to the love of her life and high school sweetheart, and she is the mother of two fantastic humans!
