    What TF is freedom?!

    What TF is freedom?!

    No jazzy intro music. No clever opening statement. No guests. Just me, expressing my feelings and current mood. Have you ever felt trapped at your job? Ridiculously unhappy and annoyed tonthe point that it almost feels like self torture? Welp, join the club! I had to step away from my desk and record what was on my heart at this very moment because that’s the only thing that helps me feel relief. Sorry but not sorry for any background noises you may hear. This is simply real shit in real time and I needed an out from my corporate due diligence for these 7 minutes. Feeling torn between what your heart wants to do and what your bank account NEEDS you to do is probably up there with getting cheated on. The shit HURTS! If anybody is feeling how I’m feeling in this moment, just know that you aren’t alone and we gone figure this shit out come hell or high water!

Each episode is real and raw. You can hear the passion behind each speakers voice. To the creator, the artist, you have started with a beautiful foundation. Continue to build on it. Love the material, love the conversations.
