    THE POSITIVE IDENTITY PODCAST SERIES IS BACK!

    After a two month break to build up episodes in planning for a major launch of original content, we took a break.

    But now we're back! When it comes to telling inspiring stories of people of all races doing good things for each other and America, we couldn't stay away. Today we talk with IamFaith, who is on the hunt to find homes for Queer and Transgender Youth. For Ron this was an inspiring story, of someone who dealt with incredible hardship and is now finding the time and energy to help those that are less fortunate. Anyone who does that is worth listening to and through IAmFaith's journey, we learn more about what it takes to make the world around us better.

    "Positive Identity: It's another week where we tell you inspiring and positive stories of people of different races doing good things for each other and the world. Then from there, we become better people and learn more how to make the world better for everyone."

    Michael Novick has been fighting against racism since the 60s. A living legend, he's the owner of Antiracist.org and has been all over the board when it comes to the pursuit of equality.

    As Michael joins Ron & Stephen, his wealth of knowledge and history provide and incredible view into where we are today, and how we can move forward as a society. Even further, Michael shows that it's not enough to be anti-racist, we have to be for things. And being for something is what Positive Identity is all about.

    Ever feel like you're trapped in your career, your life and you look at the world and want to make a change?

    Ever feel like you're not good enough, the world has been filled with too much dysfunction and that you're too small to do it.

    Jonaral Martin once felt like that. But he decided to make a change. To make a change to do something truly good for society.  In this episode we follow Jonaral's journey from unknown actor to running Hope, Healing and Love to learn how we can make a change in the world.

    Stop Asian Hate || The Positive Identity Podcast Series

    Stop Asian Hate || The Positive Identity Podcast Series

    Positive Identity's mission is to see the good in everyone when it comes to race. Asian, Black, Hispanic/Latin, Native, Mixed and White. We believe in the value you have and what you bring to America.

    Yet Asian hate has skyrocketed recently statistically, and with the Atlanta shootings and the constant videos of Asian-Americans being attacked, at Positive Identity Ron & Stephen want to address it. 

    For many of the Asian community, they feel alone and isolated by a society that has let anti-asian violence and bigotry fester and finally society is doing something about it. For Ron & Stephen, they do what they do best. By talking about the good the Asian community has done, how Asian-Americans have inspired and helped them, and how we can be of service and help our friends in the Asian community.

    These monsters won't define us. We won't let them. Instead we'll see the best of each other and take action to make us greater.

    Charlton Barton Karate Chops Division || The Positive Identity Podcast Series

    Charlton Barton Karate Chops Division || The Positive Identity Podcast Series

    Ron's long time friend Charlton Barton has lived an eclectic life, but what he's doing these days is what's really special. Teaching kids to karate chop people.

    Ok, it's not exactly that but the Positive Identity PR Team says if clickbaity headlines work, then we're sellin out!

    But seriously, Charlton Barton is a Black Belt at a karate studio where he teaches kids of all races and backgrounds the world of karate. In his work with them, he uses these martial arts to teach discipline, focus, teamwork and the ability to use your energy positively.  Charlton's inspiring story helps to teach us how team sports can bring together multi-racial individuals and serve as a way to bond, grow and be legally allowed to hit other people. (Obligatory clickbait Comment™)

    Give it a listen, it will make you feel better.

    Laughing with our Societal and Racial Pain || The Positive Identity Podcast Series

    Laughing with our Societal and Racial Pain || The Positive Identity Podcast Series

    It's Ron's Birthday, it's St. Patty's Day, Ron is hosting the biggest LA comedy show since the Pandemic began and eight Asian-Americans were murdered in Atlanta less than 24 hours before.

    As America starts to return to society Ron & Stephen tackle the question of how we deal with this pain while being optimistic about the future. As Ron looks back on the past because of his birthday, he talks about the discovery of how comedy came to him as a way to tackle pain and suffering. How comedy can help discover a truth even when the truth is horrifying to face.

    With many Americans optimistic about the future with the vaccine spreading and society beginning the process of returning to normal, Americans must face that balance of hope and happiness with the demons we still face. But as always, Ron & Stephen will find a solution or a pathway forward in going down that path.
