Caleb Rixon was a 24-year-old musical theater actor in his prime, who had just landed a major role in a production of Chicago.

He hit the gym to prepare for a long tour of song and dance when he felt something explode behind his eye during a workout class. He remembers being taken away in an ambulance and not much else.

This week on 2 GIRLS 1 PODCAST, Alli and Jen talk with Rixon about this life-altering condition, recovery, and how he turned his experience into a global network of powerful stories.
