Let’s Talk About All of the Things: History-Implications on present & future interactions
Understanding the past cannot only teach us the essentials of building fundamental aspects of our individual personhood. It can navigate us through life experiences that imprint what we adopt as our moral and ethical beliefs, our life compass. What happens when we don’t get a full picture of history? Is learning bits and pieces an accurate representation of life in order for us to make informed decisions, build meaningful relationships and adapt to whatever gifts or curve balls life will inevitably hurl at us?
On this episode of Let’s Talk About All of the Things, we discuss the implications of history and it’s effect on our present and future.

S. 3 Ep.1 Berry, Berry Fab & Fly
On this episode of The Silver Fox Journal Podcast, my guest Lacresha Berry (Berry & Co)-educator, spoken word artist, fashionista and so much more. We have a candid conversation about her multi-hyphenated approach to life, relationships, and her creative process.
Show note: We briefly discuss an article that outlines how sections of the United States have cultural differences, subsets of what we recognize currently. The article is found in the Independent “This Map Shows the US really has 11 separate ‘nations’ with entirely different cultures.”

Voice. Choice. Choose Wisely. Episode 2 Season 3
The root cause of an issue is never easy to find behind a shroud of denial. Dialogue is important surrounding. Voice. Choice. Choose wisely.
Episode 1 Season 3 What’s the word?
The "word" is everywhere. EVERYWHERE. From the palm of your hand to the wireless device inside your ear. We spread the "word" fast and at times with reckless abandonment, but is it for the best? We have a choice.
