    “WHY SOME PEOPLE BE MAD AT ME” Feat Jerreau Episode #88

    “WHY SOME PEOPLE BE MAD AT ME” Feat Jerreau Episode #88

    This weeks episode of LYP we sat with good friend of the show recording artist Jerreau. Jerreau is coming off of releasing his newest project “WHY SOME PEOPLE BE MAD AT ME” where he shares with the world his real time processing of his emotions. From self reflection, giving himself and others grace to battling self sabotage Jerreau captures vulnerability in real time. On one record “DO BETTER” Jerreau raps “That’s why my shortcomings overshadow me at night…I think it’s me I’m the only constant in my life, you know man in the mirror self reflect”. Great music and great art creates great conversation and “WSPBMAM” is no different as John & Jerreau have an in depth discussion about music, healing, relationships & creating from a place of abundance.

    Enjoy the episode!

    “MY LIFE” Ep #87 Featuring Marcel McDaniel

    “MY LIFE” Ep #87 Featuring Marcel McDaniel

    “You can’t heal what you don’t reveal”

    The thing about healing is, it takes reflection, full out transparency and acceptance of the past. Even without full clarity or understanding, accepting that the things we’ve gone through are all a part of a bigger plan and we aren’t in control as much as we think.

    This weeks guest was the good brother Marcel McDaniel, he shared his story from being a gangster in the height of the crack era to now being a servant to young brothers who are on the same path that he once followed. He shared the value of fatherhood, how his wife had allowed him to be fully human, & why everyone has the capacity for change & growth.

    We met a year ago around this time as we started working on the film “MY LIFE”. At the time I had an idea of what story I wanted to tell, but during the process of production & editing, we quickly learned that God had a different plan for what story to tell.

    “We Go On” Swoope EP #85

    In this weeks episode we sat down with an LYP Alum and family member, Producer, Artist & Grammy Award Winner Swoope. We start the conversation by reflecting on how much has changed since our first conversation back in 2019. From there we get into the reflections of getting older, and learning things that no longer serve us today. We briefly talk about the Swoope’s POV on the state of Hip Hop, specifically Kendrick Lamar’s verse on LIKE THAT. Will Swoope retire from rap? Inner child healing and his relationship with fear. This was a conversation Amongst men who respect each other but love one another as well. Thank you for tuning in!

    “Finish…It’s Possible” Ep 84 Karl Majors

    “Finish…It’s Possible” Ep 84 Karl Majors

    None of us know how we will react and respond when tragedy happens. I pray that all of us can tap into some of the wisdom and courage that our guest Karl Majors gave me. Karl’s has worked in the world of finance for over 20 years, but this conversation we talked about his childhood growing up in Youngstown around substance, mental and physical abuse, lead him to Akron to pursue a career of nursing where he would ultimately meet his wife of almost 20 years before she tragically passed away from Breast Cancer almost 10 years ago. Karl was transparent, vulnerable & and a true testament to we are all stronger than we even know, but sometimes it takes pain and heartache to see so. We thank Karl for sharing his story. LYP 🌱

Purposeful Pod

I really appreciate this pod. I like hearing the variety of stories and it’s a nice way for me to stay encouraged and connected. This helps me check in with myself. Entrepreneurship comes with pressure but the pod doesn’t allow me to feel isolated and to stop comparing and just be me.

Helpful podcast! Love the concept.

I really like this podcast but the audio isn’t that great. I can barely hear the some of the interviews (Kam Alexander, herbal ciddy) to name a few. It’s really a struggle to intake the knowledge because I’m struggling to hear the guest. The host voice travels more and the guests are almost always soft spoken. Just a suggestion, either change the mic setting so that it picks up more sound, or sit closer to the mic, & direct your guest to do the same throughout the interview. Most of the guest sound like they are across the room :( I shouldn’t have to turn my volume up all the way to hear one person & down to hear the next. Overall great pod! I listen when I can!
