Today I sat down with healthcare worker and activist Anna Lovotti. Anna is a physical therapist who recently moved to California to put her newest niche as a Neurology Certified Specialist to good use. She like many, was jolted into action regarding anti-racist education as a white ally following the death of George Floyd.

Activist, Friend, bald…..Why am I mentioning that she’s bald? Well as always you’ll see once you finish listening to the episode, but without giving up too much Kristina does a beautiful job of highlighting the title of this episode: Life gets life-y. From shaving her head to veganism to falling out of codependency the ultimate theme that I hope you gain from listening to this episode is that it is never to late to learn something ...

The Pastor! The Minister! The Legend! Paullllllllllll Calcote

I LOVED this conversation with Pastor Calcote. We as humans tend to compartmentalize certain topics, but at the end of the day there is totally a message to be taken from every indirect interaction because everything is connected. On paper we talked about completely random topics and literally hit on every scope of conversation. From prayer to memes to Michael Jordan to m...

It’s the SEASON 1 FINALE and I’VE GOT SOME FEELINGS. I feel since I won’t be posting up any episodes on the Festivus, so I figure NOW would be a good time to air my grievances (Seinfeld fans know what’s up).

I’m talking about some causes ...

*Trigger Warning* 15:00-16:15 There is potentially triggering discussion recalling September 11, 2001

I was really excited about this convo, for the fact that I know I don’t know nearly enough about this as I should. Especially teaching cultural competency so I was grateful to sit down with him and dissect the implicit biases that exist in society as well as myself. He broke down what ableism looks like, where these discussions coul...

Today I sat down with Senior Logistics NCO Sergeant First Class Robert Chadwick. On paper this friendship wouldn’t make sense to most... which is why it makes total sense for us to have this conversation. Robert holds his Masters of Business Administration in Logistics and Supply Chain Management and is pursuing a doctorate in Business Administration, which aligns really well with what he does in the Army. He also works alongside h...

Originally when I planned to sit down and record this solo episode, I was planning on breaking down the concept of community based on a quote I reposted a couple weeks ago, but I decided to shift gears a little. Coming off the heels of the first presidential debate between Former VP Joe Biden and President Trump, and the passing of the Notorious RBG, I wanted to share my thoughts on what it means to be an Ally and an Accomplice.
