There is a constant challenge in speaking about relationships and falsely labeled stigmas I feel we need to normalize because NO ONE is immune to them. So come join me every Saturday, while I debunk some myths and misconceptions in relationships, social injustices, business, and mental health in order to normalize discussions around these topics one chat at a time. In the process, I'm sure you can laugh, learn, and gain insight to conversations you would be reluctant to participate in or have access to; ultimately bringing us closer as a human race.

Relevant. Impactful. Uncovering hard truths. A voice that needs to be heard. These are the words that I would use to describe this podcast! I fell in love on the first listen!!
