    Standing Up Against Racism In America

    Racism is systemic in America. We must speak up and fight back against racism. We must share our stories and hold racists accountable for their actions. Do not stay silent during this time of crisis. Let us do our part in helping end the cycle of hate.

    College Is Becoming Too Risky Of A Gamble To Make

Bay v. VA

I agree with your wife in one of the latest episodes— I grew up in the bay and that’s where I learned grit and hustle. I would def not deprive my kids of the joy of growing up here in a place where they can identify with their peers and now even their teachers, it’s just a different kind of experience period. I see your point about teaching them how to survive but I wouldn’t intentionally make them suffer just to teach them how to hustle, let kids be kids. All respect no attack

I’ve been listening to Sam and this podcast for about a year now and it’s been great! Quick 15-20 minute podcasts highlighting current and complex issues. Sam presents the information in a clear and sensical way that makes you feel you can talk confidently about it throughout the week. Great podcast!
