Just as no one chooses their skin color, no one chooses what country they are born in or what language they grow up speaking. That’s something I was reminded of in my discussion with Sarah on immigration, and yet it’s something that gives many of us great privilege that we have done nothing to deserve. Chances are if you’re reading this, you’ve benefited from some of that privilege yourself. Sarah is back this week to share about how we can harness that privilege to help those around us. In Part 1 of our conversation last week, Sarah spent a lot of time answering all the questions I had about immigration policy in the US. I’ll be honest - I didn’t know half as much as I thought I did about this topic! It was so great to learn from someone who has not only done her research and has the statistics to prove it, but from someone who’s on the frontlines and sees the ins and outs of our current immigration setup on a daily basis. That’s what Sarah is chatting about with us today - she’s sharing the frontline work she and her team do through Casa de Paz. This organization has grown leaps and bounds since Sarah first started it nearly 9 years ago, and the work that they do is truly admirable. The best part about it, though? We can all be involved from wherever we’re at! Sarah is providing us with some ways that we can contribute to correcting this broken system, whether it’s with The Casa or elsewhere. She’s got all kinds of resources for us on how we can become more educated and take a stand for our fellow human beings. Because that’s what this is really all about, isn’t it?

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

The Ron Burgundy Podcast

Will Ferrell reprises his role as Ron Burgundy in his brand new Ron Burgundy Podcast! Each episode has a different theme in which Ron engages in conversation with another notable person on the topic at hand. In true Ron Burgundy fashion, these conversations have a tendency to go off the rails, and we find out things about people we never knew we wanted to know. In season 2, Ron considers a run for President, continues to perform music, and blacks out at work. In Season 1, Ron addressed important issues like bullying and the mind-expanding nature of meditation, and attempted to ultimately answer the question “seriously, what is a podcast?”
