    State of Race in America || The Positive Identity Podcast

    State of Race in America || The Positive Identity Podcast

    While the State of the Union address tales place in January/February, after the "Summer of Love 2021", it's time to see where we're at as a nation.

    For Ron & Stephen, the fun and joy of summer now turns to the seriousness and edge of fall. COVID is on a rampage, the Supreme Court is dropping the hammer, Afghanistan is dominating the news and America continues through the uncertainty of this current era.

    But there is optimism in the air if not a major question that Ron & Stephen must face... and that is when people refuse to see the same reality... how can they ever truly come together.

    Jon Linton and the Unhoused Epidemic || The Positive Identity Podcast

    As we are currently going through global pandemic, we are also simultaneously going through another epidemic: homelessness. But what is our country doing in terms of helping those without homes? What can we individually do to help? Jon Linton, founder of I have a Name and Let's Be Better Humans, has taken matters into his own hands.

    Jon shares the various ways he has impacted the homelessness community, spreading hope to those who have expressed that they feel invisible and dehumanized.  Jon shares his journey of becoming an advocate for the unhoused, and how it all started with a photograph.

    David Shakelford Playwrights' a Racial Tragedy || The Positive Identity Podcast

    David Shakelford Playwrights' a Racial Tragedy || The Positive Identity Podcast

    David Shakelford has a story to tell about injustice. Except that this injustice took place before cameras and the internet were a thing. So how do you bring to life a story, about a military mission and exercise that went wrong, killed many soldiers, many soldiers of color, when there wasn't anything around to record it? For David... it was to recreate this world so people could see it with their own eyes.

    For Ron and Stephen, focusing on the injustices of the past, and ultimately learning from them is the great question they are trying to figure out. How can we look back to allow us to understand how to go forward. In this podcast episode, they see how people like David are doing just that. Then ultimately they both learn from David's play what they can do for real to make sure that injustice never happens again.

    Ani Zonneveld Muslims for Progressive Values || The Positive Identity

    "Positive Identity: It's another week where we tell you inspiring and positive stories of people of different races doing good things for each other and the world. Then from there, we become better people and learn more how to make the world better for everyone."

    What does it mean to have an identity... and have a morality attached to it? For Ani Zonneveld, this was a question she was asking herself in the Muslim faith. While much of the discussion globally has taken to a turn to looking at the lens of Islam conservatively, she felt that it could have gone in another direction. And her direction she found was fraught with danger... and clarity.For Ron and Stephen, many people attach morality to their racial identity. 

    What does it mean to be Black. To be White. And so forth. As this question takes on one of deep importance, as many people these days more and more attach their identity to their cultural and moral choices. Speaking to Ani, maybe she can give a glimpse into what it means to be you... and how you act as you.

    Alex Lui Gets Real on Race and Sex || The Positive Identity Podcast

    Alex Lui Gets Real on Race and Sex || The Positive Identity Podcast

    Alex Lui is releasing a movie,  A Sexplination, and he's doing his media circuit to drive attention for the movie. Ron and Stephen are intrigued by Alex, his Asian American story in the middle of #StopAsianHate, and his story of what sexuality means in today's society. 

    It's a charged subject to be sure, but one that must be talked about. How do race and sex intersect, and how do they effect each other. Even further, as human beings what is "good sex" and are we as a society doing it right. Ron, being a member of the LGBT community who survived the homophobia of the 80s, 90s and 2000s, definitely has a lot to say on this subject. Stephen of course, is perfectly fine prodding them both to get to the real truth behind it all.

    Step One Pre-Release Discussion || The Positive Identity Podcast

    In this episode, Stephen and Ron discuss the imminent release of Step1 for 12 Steps for America.  With the video set to launch, the question arises, how will people react. For Ron, this is a very personal story and journey. He is essentially taking his own life, and the darkness he experienced through addiction, and tackling one of America's most controversial subjects through that lens, race and discrimination.

    How will people react? How will America react. They discuss.
