About This Show
GrUB is an acronym for Growing up Black and is a podcast about stories, topics, and ideas from people of color in all different ages, shades, and cultural demographics.
We often think that the situations and hardships that we go through are original when, more often than not, many people are going through similar, if not the same situations. From the way we've grown up, to the way we react to things on an everyday basis.
The main goal of this podcast is to create a forum for the diversity of the minority experience. Hopefully you hear something that you have gone through and are going through and realize that you are not alone and better days ahead. You may laugh, you may cry, you may learn, but at the very least, you will feel.
Think of GrUB as the radio version of Humans of New York for People of Color.

Soundbites Ep 12: Perspective
Welcome Welcome Welcome ya to another episode of Soundbites! Today I want to talk to you all about the importance of perspective. Every month I'll talk about a topic that’s been coming up in my everyday conversation, I'll discuss a couple of the top news stories of the month, and then I'll close it out with your monthly dose of positivity. Going about our everyday lives, it’s sometimes very difficult to keep a positive outlook on things because of our inherent nature to compare ourselves to others. With the advent of social media and everyone presenting their “highlight reels”, it becomes very easy to compare ourselves to others and increasingly hard to appreciate what we already have. In today’s Soundbite, I talk about flipping your perspective to focus on the positives instead of the negatives, what you have instead of what you don’t, in order to just maintain a better outlook on life. I believe that by changing our perspectives and shifting our focus, we can appreciate the fact that there’s a light at the end of tunnel and forget that we’re trapped in a tunnel in the first place. Please let me know of what you think of this episode and leave your feedback here or rate us on iTunes. I’d really appreciate it. With that said ya’, h
