    Meet Daryl Davis

    Meet Daryl Davis

    How do we deal with our world when life as we know it  changes, when everything we once knew to be true no longer is true, and when we must confront the cognitive dissonance that comes with such a rude awakening? The key lies in realizing that what is unfolding is, in fact, an awakening. As we navigate the new reality that is Covid-19, we have an opportunity to learn from the masters and teachers who facilitate such an awakening. Daryl Davis is one such guru. 

    In addition to being an amazing musician, Daryl's claim to fame is getting hundreds of members of the KKK to leave the organization. You heard that right.  As an African-American who regularly hangs out with klan leaders, Daryl's very being serves as a fodder for cognitive dissonance -- and, as you'll hear in this episode, cognitive dissonance is what awakens folks to the quest of self-discovery, truth, and enlightenment.

    Sharon Content, Founder of Children of Promise

    Sharon Content, Founder of Children of Promise

    Children of Promise (CPNYC) is an organization in Bedstuy, Brooklyn that mentors kids whose parents are incarcerated. I regularly volunteer there so I recently sat down with Sharon Content, the founder of the org, to talk about her journey of building, maintaining, and growing this non-profit that services the needs of kids and caretakers alike affected by the incarceration system. I think you'll be inspired by Ms. Content's tenacity and drive and I hope it motivates you to consider pursuing social entrepreneurial endeavors in your own back yard. Enjoy!

    Life & Redemption After Prison: An Interview with Dabney Hall

    Life & Redemption After Prison: An Interview with Dabney Hall

    Dabney Hall spent 40 years of his life in prison. After returning to civilian life, he could have collapsed under the weight of the pressures around him and returned to prison. Instead he worked on improving his habits, became a participant in  Fortune Society's 'Alternatives to Incarceration' program, and assumed a leadership position in his community. In this interview, we sat down to talk about his journey and the advice he has to give to young African-American men trying to overcome poverty, gang life, and other negative influences in their environment.

Throughly enjoyable

A challenging voice of reason at a critical moment in human development.

I have been inspired and encouraged by Chloe’s work. I loved the Otura Mun interview! I had never heard of Ife and now I can’t imagine life without them! Keep up the great work.

Thoughtful and compassionate podcast

I have been following Chloe’s media output for a while. She always produces work with consistent core themes of encouraging love, bravely stating her own opinions on controversial topics and recognizing the complexity in her. Although I really appreciate her engagement with all kinds of thinkers, I would be interested in hearing a few more left-leaning guests on her pod, for the sake of variety. I also would also like to hear more of her unique pop culture analysis. :)
