Who we are today did not occur in a vacuum. There is context to our lives that began long before we were born. The stories that make us are not always easy to share but it's imperative that we do.

Special thanks to all those who helped me put this together, including Amanda, Irene, Cory, Jay, john, Casey and Reggie. Go to my FB page to find out more on the readers.

Season 2: Episode 17 - The Brave

April 4, 2018

Over the past year I've met and been inspired by many brave people; from a high school student interested in a career in STEM to a prison inmate pursing his college degree. I try to be brave in my podcast, but to be brave I must be honest. Unfortunately there have been some who believe my honesty creates an unsafe "space," and therefore they try to silence me. To those people, I will not be silenced. I will continue to be brave and honest because in my heart I know that is whats needed.

Credits:
• Intro: Beanie Sigel; "The Truth”
• Song 1: Christina Aguilera; "Beautiful"
• Song 2: Pharrell Williams; ”Freedom"

Season 2: Episode 16 - Remember Vanessa

April 4, 2018

WARNING WARNING - This episode contains graphic content depicting sexual violence - viewer discretion is STRONGLY advised.

Inspired by the, "Me Too," movement I take a personal examination of my actions and consider how they may have contributed to our society's rape culture. This is a very personal episode and may not be easy for people (especially victims of sexual assault) to listen through its entirety. With that said, I believe its important to listen to the entire episode before forming an opinion. Thank you.

• Song 1: Notorious Big; "I got a Story to Tell"
• Song 2: Tracy Chapman; ” The Rape of the World"

• Song 4: Akon; ” Sorry Blame it on me"
• Song 5: The Avett Brothers; “Nor Hard Feelings ”
