In this episode, I talk with author, speaker, activist and mother Cynthia Changyit Levin about her book, From Changing Diapers to Changing the World: Why Moms Make Great Advocates and How to Get Started. If you’re looking for practical inspiration on how to make effective change in your local community, then this is the episode for you! Advocacy is a great way to get involved in driving change in our communities, yet very few of us ever actually learn how to become one. With over a decade of experience, Cynthia offers a step-by-step guide on how to be an effective advocate at the grassroots level - in the US and beyond. While her book centers around mom advocates, anyone can learn from and be inspired by it! Some topics of discussion include: Why moms make great advocates  How advocacy can provide you with a greater sense of self and purpose (and why it’s not about being a martyr!) How you as one person can make a difference The importance of non-partisan advocacy Practical steps to get started today! And more!

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK?

Who Killed JFK? For 60 years, we are still asking that question. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy's tragic assassination, legendary filmmaker Rob Reiner teams up with award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien to tell the history of America’s greatest murder mystery. They interview CIA officials, medical experts, Pulitzer-prize winning journalists, eyewitnesses and a former Secret Service agent who, in 2023, came forward with groundbreaking new evidence. They dig deep into the layers of the 60-year-old question ‘Who Killed JFK?’, how that question has shaped America, and why it matters that we’re still asking it today.
