The “Junto”is a club Benjamin Franklin founded way back when America was Great. The purpose of the Junto was to debate questions of morals, politics, and natural philosophy. Our show’s not quite that stuffy, but here and there we stumble upon something profound between the geeky jokes. The Junto Show is three friends, one black, one white, and one asian who get together and discuss the news of the day, leadership, pop culture, and whatever else comes to mind. We bring our unique perspectives to the table and hash it all out.

MW_Go4Launch ,

Great example of the push-pull 🇺🇸 needs to get comfortable with!

These three have created an audibly pleasing, comedic, and friendly ninja warrior approach to debating life, politics, and current events. A good model for where the pulse of America’s diversity of perspectives is hopefully moving towards. We can all get along, even when we disagree on things, as Lance, Johnny, and Beau demonstrate in a fun way! Great listen 🤙
