    Black Folks Need Therapy

    This week I chop it up with my younger brother, Michael. We talk about what it was like for him to be the 2nd born and the pressure he felt being a younger brother and an older brother. Off top, Michael shares how he felt like the black sheep of the family and how that impacted his outlook on life. We explore that trauma together and I apologize for my role in the pain that I caused him. This conversation is one long therapy session for Michael and I. We laugh a lot, cry a bit, and share a whole lot of love. Alright yall, here's, Mike. Producer: Jonathan DumasMusic: Tony Deras Instagram: @RTWDPodcastEmail: RTWDPodcast@gmail.com

    Raising Kings

    About this Episode: This week’s guest is my mom, Stacia. Now, my mom used to say that we grew up together and I didn’t know what she was talking about until I realized that she had me when she was 15. So, yeah we definitely grew up together. My mother is one of the kindest people I have ever met. So kind, in fact, she made friends with a stranger that accidentally called her phone. This is a legit story, she literally became friends with a random person that called the wrong number. My mom is the type of person that can make your day with her smile and warm presence. At the same time, she’ll give you the honest truth that will set you straight. Her determination is unwavering and we talk about what it was like raising three black sons, the current state of America, and where we find hope moving forward. Producer: Jonathan DumasMusic: Tony Deras Instagram: @RTWDPodcastEmail: RTWDPodcast@gmail.comSources:Arienne Thompson Plourde and Amelia Thompson are sisters from Memphis, Tennessee.

Exactly what this moment needs.

Humble, authentic, honest and deep. In a moment when chaos seems to be the chief ring leader in this country, Jonathan has stepped in and gotten back to the core of what we as human beings desperately need - real, open and dignified conversations with everyday people. If we want to move forward as a country, this is where we start. So glad there’s a podcast out there that exemplifies how to have the hard conversations. Keep up the great work RTWD!

Raw and Real

Jonathan is a fresh, welcome voice to the podcasting world! So grateful for his example of what honest, raw, real conversations look like and how to ask probing, relevant questions. He doesn’t shy away from difficult topics and neither should we. Listening to him “interview” members of his family has been eye-opening, convicting, and encouraging. What a gift it is that he has graciously allowed us all an inside view into the conversations and the lived experiences of him and his family. Eager for the next episode to drop!
