(Part 1) Thought Work and "Cancel Culture": A Conversation with Amber Taylor, Brig Johnson & Brenda Lomeli
Whether you call it call-in culture, consequence culture or "cancel culture,” you likely have an opinion about the current online accountability discourse. On this special two-part series, I invited three of my colleagues and advanced certification students - Master Coach Brenda Lomeli, Master Coach Brig Johnson, and Clutch Coach Amber Taylor - to discuss the range of actions and conversations that get lumped together, sometimes unhelpfully, in this movement. Join us for the first part of the conversation in which we explore accountability in the context of white supremacy, racial and social justice, online social dynamics, and psychology.

Black and white thinking
This episode of the podcast is very helpful to me! (As is literally every episode) I enjoy the was that Kara breaks thought work down into digestible, easy to understand terms. Thank you for all of your bad assery. Huge fan of the podcast. Highly recommended to anyone who is interested in improving their life. I probably paused this episode 20 or more times to take notes. Great content!
Practical and so useful
I especially like learning about the psychology behind my own decision making. There are so many relevant topics (anxiety/procrastination/manifestation) in each podcast and Kara breaks these topics down in an easy to understand format.
I didn’t totally understand why I feel the way I do nor understand how to totally control my anxiousness as a high achieving individual, but with a few practical steps from Kara I’m more confident that I’ll be able to create neutrality with my anxious thoughts. Several podcasts will provide useful case studies, but where Kara excels is providing actual steps against the problem.
When when I finally get a job I think I’m going to sign up for her to be my life coach because I have learned a lot in the first two episodes about loving myself through the biggest heartbreak of losing my grandmother who actually took care of me since I was one and I re turn the favor by taking care of her until she past away in Nov 2020.
