This podcast discusses a plethora of important issues that we need to discuss and dissect as a society so as to alter, challenge, and improve these issues that primarily affect marginalized communities and even privileged communities in subtle and overt ways. We need to heal as a collective and de-colonize the system from which we operate within. Let’s talk about the taboo, the uncomfortable, the harsh, the gritty and the beauty and healing to be found in it all.

Powerful, Real, and Raw
Andrea Ramos is an amazing poet and writer! I had the pleasure of reading her poetry book “Gritty” which is just a raw piece of her heart! Her writing is so personal, honest, vulnerable yet conveys incredible strength and bravery. Let’s Get Gritty invites you to relate and connect on a personal “Gritty” level. Her message is so important and will bring empowerment and healing to anyone who encounters it!"
