April 6, 2021

After three hours of conversation, it became clear that there are an abundant amount of inequities, concerns, questions, and needs in public education. It's a sinkhole of problems that most people care about but lack the resources to "make it right". Join Hannah in the car, and Jackie in the closet as they go #RedforED and process where to start in the Season of Solutions (SOS) for education.

Ep. 69: Health & Healing (Pt. 1)

February 1, 2021

Fear and mistrust. Two of the many negative sentiments Americans have when facing our healthcare system and its providers. For Black people, the feelings are derived from a deep history of maltreatment dating from the time of slavery and Jim Crow.

Why is the lack of trust spreading and deepening? What do we do about it? 

We sat down with Dr. Mary Ojo-Carons of EvoScient Gynecology to talk about the challenges and solutions in building trust between patients and providers.
