    Normal People & Reflections on Love w/ Katey Hannaby & John Gleeson

    Normal People & Reflections on Love w/ Katey Hannaby & John Gleeson

    In 2018, Irish author Sally Rooney published her second novel, Normal People. It quickly became an international bestseller and Rooney was hailed as the first great millennial novelist for her stories of love and late capitalism. In April this year, Hulu and BBC released a 12-episode TV series based on the novel. The story follows the relationship between Marianne Sheridan (Daisy Edgar-Jones) and Connell Waldron (Paul Mescal), as they navigate adulthood from their final days in secondary school to their undergraduate years in Trinity College. It is a beautiful look at two highly intelligent but socially complex people who are constantly mislabeled and misunderstood by everyone around them except each other.
    It can be hard to capture the words and feelings of a book into a visual and emotional piece of film, but this show really does. Sensual, tender, and intimate, it gently clutches your heart and makes you remember what it means to feel the complexities of love. Quiet and subtle, Normal People is simply a beautiful piece told perfectly by two brilliant young actors.
    I watched the entire show last week and I have not been able to think about anything else since. So, I asked my friends, Katey Hannaby and John Gleeson to join me here today to discuss this beautiful coming-of-age story and what it taught us about love and relationships. We compare and contrast the themes of Normal People with our own lives, experiences, trials and tribulations.
    Please let me know what you thought about the show by sending me an email at hello@adamgavin.com or DM me on Instagram @adamgavin.

    Reflections on Racism & BLM w/ Kevin Taylor

    Reflections on Racism & BLM w/ Kevin Taylor

    We like to think that we have come so far as a global society, but there is still so much injustice, hate, and racism out there. In the last few years, hate crimes have been on the rise. White supremacists have been emboldened. Anti-immigrant rhetoric has intensified. We condemn these awful examples of prejudice and bias and hate, but systemic racism is something different. It is less about violence or burning crosses than it is about everyday decisions made by people who may not even think of themselves as racist. As sociologist Eduardo Bonilla-Silva has said, "The main problem nowadays is not the folks with the hoods, but the folks dressed in suits." Systemic racism persists in our schools, offices, court system, police departments, and elsewhere. Why? Think about it: when white people occupy most positions of decision-making power, people of color have a difficult time getting a fair shake, let alone getting ahead.

    As a white European straight male, I have never had to experience any of the prejudice many of my Black, Asian, and Hispanic friends face daily. For me and everyone else like me, it has taken the death of another innocent man and global protests for us to really reflect on these issues. To better understand the racism, prejudice, and hate millions of people in the U.S. and around the world face every day, I invited my friend Kevin Taylor to come on the podcast to talk about his personal experiences. We discuss Black Lives Matter, how you can show support for the movement, and our thoughts on people protesting for “Blue Lives Matter.” Kevin also shares some personal stories and examples of times he has been affected by systemic racism, his deeply rooted fear of being pulled over by the police, and what it is like growing up knowing that the cards are stacked against you.

    Growing Up in Oppression to Climbing the World’s Tallest Mountains & Empowering Women All Over the World w/ Sara Safari

    Growing Up in Oppression to Climbing the World’s Tallest Mountains & Empowering Women All Over the World w/ Sara Safari

    In this episode, I am joined by author, speaker, mountain climber, college professor, and women’s rights advocate, Sara Safari. In 2015, she received The Global Citizen award from the United Nations Association and is currently on track to become the first Iranian woman in history to climb the Seven Summits, the highest peak in each continent. Growing up in Iran after the Islamic Revolution, Sara enjoyed little personal freedom and few rights under the law, living an existence marked by oppression and limitations. In response to her childhood experiences, Sara was motivated to empower marginalized women everywhere—and what better way to show young girls that they can do anything than to stand on top of the world? Literally. She recounts her experiences of overcoming these great challenges and adversities in her books Follow my Footsteps, Above the Mountain Shadow, and Making a Difference.
    We talk about Sara’s climbing experiences, setting big goals, overcoming challenges, how a near-death experience can change your perspective on life and what is important. I also ask Sara what it means to her to have come from such adversity to become an inspiration for young girls and women all over the world. It was a privilege having her on my show, so please enjoy this conversation with the admirable Sara Safari.
