Re Evaluating Your Brand Under Quarantine With Allison Hodges

May 27, 2020

It's been said countless times, this moment has us all shaken up. For creatives specifically, this moment has many taking a step back to find deeper passion and purpose behind their content. With that in mind, I asked our very first guest on the podcast, Allison Hodges to come back and discuss how she's been feeling in this moment and how she's envisioned a new mission for her platform. Allison is the creator of The Savvy Camel, a fashion and lifestyle blog. You can listen to the first episode here.

Many argue we need bail reform alongside of criminal justice reform. However, not many agree. Ken Good is on the Board of Directors for the Professional Bondsman of Texas and he has some critiques of the bail reform movement and how we tackle criminal justice as a whole.

Society After Covid-19

Society After Covid-19

April 30, 2020

The other day I watched in horror as families piled into lines to get free food. This pandemic is taking a toll on so many people and forcing us to look at the structural failures of our society. So today I take a look at some of our previous episodes. While I've done many interviews a few of these stuck out as it relates to how we can change our society to better take care of those who are severely underprivileged. 

 

My first interview is with City Councilmember At-Large Isaiah Thomas. You can listen to his full interview here.

My second interview is with Judge Jennifer Schultz. You can listen to the full interview here.

My Third segment is with Leah and Sadedrah of Parapower. You can listen to the full episode here

Proud Black Girl

Proud Black Girl

April 16, 2020

Today I bring you my conversation with Shy Williams. She's the author of Proud Black Girl and Proud Black Boy children's books. She's also a former detective and now a speaker teaching how our youth interact with police. As you can see, she has carried multiple identities. We talk about the struggle black people go through carrying those identities and what brought to this journey today.

Black Conservative with Tyler Bluntman

Black Conservative with Tyler Bluntman

January 21, 2020

When we have political discussions, it can be very easy to only engage with people we agree with. So today I'm stepping outside the box and invited a young black conservative to the show. He goes by Tyler Bluntman and calls himself the terrible conservative. He affiliates with the constitutional party, he supports legalizing marijuana and believes abortion is murder and that's just the tip of the iceberg. You don't want to miss this episode.
