Intern Jude ,

Wow

I came across this show and am blown away by the level of storytelling and vulnerability from each guest. I was pleasantly surprised to feel connected to each brother’s interview I’ve heard so far — and I say that as a 30-something, millennial, first generation Asian-American straight woman. In other words, connecting on a human level with each guest through their sharing has been so insightful and humbling as a listener. I’ve cried, laughed, and been speechless in silence through this show. Grateful for each Brother who has and will share their stories about their life experiences.

My best so far

The most open honest and intimate conversation interview I’ve had

S to the third power ,

A major contribution to our nation

This man is so positive and I wish everyone could listen to him especially children. His story can help us understand the struggle and ways to overcome the while helping other races see the commonalities we all share.
