    LIVE: StreetWise Partners at Kramer's Books

    LIVE: StreetWise Partners at Kramer's Books

    This is a throw back episode from February 2020 and it is live! This episode will accompany a full-length recording soon to be released!

    In partnership with, StreetWise Partners we dove into some very important and frequently asked questions like.. what should I spritz my resume with, what font should I use, etc.. 

    While Washington D.C. has seen steady job growth over the past few years, this growth has been disproportionate. For those from overlooked communities, unemployment sits near recession levels. Individuals from these communities rarely have access to soft and professional skills training critical for job success, creating an opportunity gap that exacerbates inequality. StreetWise Partners is here to help!

    Didn't get that job offer you were hoping for? Chris has created a template rejection of a rejection letter.

    Dear StreetWise Partners,

    After much consideration, I regret to inform you that I will not be able to accept your rejection at this time. I will see you Monday morning, ready to be trained on whatever it is I’ll be doing with your company. I wish you the best of luck with your future rejections.

    Sincerely,

    Chris

    LIVE: Sparc with Dana Fleitman & special guest, Franqi French!

    LIVE: Sparc with Dana Fleitman & special guest, Franqi French!

    After a brief hiatus, we are BACK bb!
    This is a throw back episode from January 2020 and it is live! This episode accompanies our off-stage doozie with Dana Fleitman from Sparc. We dove into the nitty gritty on Stalking Awareness Month 2020! And although that month is over, stalkers still live on and we need to learn how to identify traits of stalking so we spread awareness and advocate on behalf of victims.
    SPARC is a project of AEquitas and is funded by the Office of Violence Against Women. The views in this podcast are those of the interviewee.
    This episode also features the one and only FRANQI FRENCH and she speaks to her own experience with stalking and how she overcame the experience to become the bad ass woman she is today! This was one of her last shows in DC before heading over to the West Coast baby where she is making all her new fans laugh! Franqi is a winner of the 16th Annual StandUp NBC competition! Booyakasha!
    Sad thing to note, my beautiful poem about stalking was cut off. I have posted it below for your enjoyment.

    Little loo hoo 
    Sat on her chair
    Scouring instagram
    With such delicate care
    She could not tap hard
    She could not tap twice
    She could not like a photo
    That she thought was nice
    “Am I a stalker,
    Because I watch him all day?”
    Silly little loo hoo 
    What a funny thing to say!
    This is not stalking,
    Your ex dont know you are there.  
    You’re not dressed up like Mrs. Doubtire 
    Braiding his hair
    You’re simply waiting for updates
    And watching his life 
    Fantasizing about when
    You will be his wife. 
    We once called this stalking
    But now we know best
    We can watch our crushes
    Instagram, snapchat - the rest
    As long as they dont know
    They can’t be afraid 
    Time to get that 
    Free data upgrade.. So you can watch them more
    We are no longer creepy!  
    If he had only knew..
    Here we are some more
    Not-stalking things you can do:
    You can watch their stories, 
    from fake accounts too
    You can get your friends to 
    Send them pictures of you 
    You can find a girl in his post
    Then go to her facebook
    You can spend a few hours there
    Just a little quick look
    You can then find her ex
    From 98 - yesteryear,
    They went hunting together
    Once they shot a deer 
    But this isn’t stalking
    This causes no fear.
    So go on your way now
    Look at all the folks
    Look at the pages 
    of those telling the jokes [what’s your handle? To the comic
