I began this podcast to have conversations with storytellers, creatives, healers and others, in search of what it all means. So we may understand why it is we do what we do, and build stronger foundations of understanding, empathy and expansion, both within and beyond our communities.
I began this podcast to continue with conversations of change inspired by three 2020 events that helped shift my consciousness: the global pandemic, the aftermath of George Floyd, and a personal threat and associated attacks on social media, which respectively caused me to feel mortal, angry, and misunderstood.
But they also led to a rebirth. As social media did not provide a space for meaningful discourse, I felt a desire to publicly share the insight gained through ongoing discussions with friends, colleagues and mentors. Because as communities, we rarely have the conversations needed to cope with our experiences. These sometimes hard conversations may help refocus, and strengthen, our mission as connectors.
This podcast is a space for understanding, for reflection, so that we may understand where we are to go.
