Bem Joiner: From booking early shows for Drake , Ted Talks, to proving Nike WRONG, It's clear that Atlanta Influences Everything
Hello, my fellow humans helping humans! Today we are going to be talking about the ATL. Why the ATL? What does that have to do with anything? It has to do with EVERYTHING because haven't you heard? ATL INFLUENCES EVERYTHING. Today we are speaking with BEM JOINER. Bem Joiner is a cultural curator, civic leader, 2021 Fellowship Selection Advisory Committee and co-founder of the lifestyle brand, Atlanta Influences Everything. His brand not only highlights Atlanta but uses its influence to help Atlanta through civic work on Thursdays giving the people food to feed their families and neighbors, with essential items like protein, veggies, fruits, milk, etc. His brand is huge you may have seen a couple of celebrities and politicians wear this brand with pride as well as some popups or collaborations. This podcast is pretty long but in this particular episode, it will feel as though you and I and Bem are just sitting on the porch having a conversation about what's happening in our backyard. We are going to walk down memory lane of what Atlanta once was and what it is now. We start with Bem's family history and his neighborhood and how that informs his actions today. He talks about his original love: music, How he booked the early shows of Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and the Goodie Mob reunion. He speaks about the stark contrast of paths with being an entrepreneur vs a doctor. We discuss how Rohit Malhotra from the Center for Civic Innovation reminded him to be himself for his Ted Talk. And one of the coolest things we talk about is how Nike told him that Atlanta was NOT a top-tier market, and Bem showed them just how wrong they are and the birth of his brand journey began.

Johari Dozier: The Dirty Truth Behind Why Kids Underperform or are Absent from School
Hello my fellow humans helping humans! Today we are talking about hygiene . We have either been bullied in school for our hygiene issues OR have been the bully ourselves. Let's be honest. Somebody in school had a nickname because they stunk! As we grow up we know that there are issues with people starving or not eating enough and lucky there are some options where the government supplements that. But as we all know as an adult cost of living and purchasing everyday items can increase while for decades our salary or minimum wage remains the same. So even with supplemental help for food like SNAP or WIC from the government hygiene items are a hole , and at times they can be super expensive to purchase and some kids go to school without it because their family cannot afford it. Often times this leads to bullying , decreased performance and happiness, and general absence from school. But Johari Dozier is changing that by making trash cans into mobile hygiene units where people can donate hygiene items and those items will be given to title 1 Fulton county schools! Listen to how it started , how's it going and how you can be a part of this mission!

Fabian Williams: Muralist Illuminating the city of Atlanta with paintings of past and present cultural and civil rights leaders
Today on Humans Helping Humans: Welcome to the Bonus Episode of HHH! This is my first EVER interview . Ash Nash and Fabian Williams were kind enough to give me a chance to interview Fabian! You'll hear what a first-time episode sounds like, you might hear some thuds and click-clacking in the background. (that's my cat Nova pounding the door and my dog Gigi being intrusive during the interview. On some of the hardest nights when I worked on the ambulance running emergency calls I often felt helpless and close to breaking down but Fabian's work was constantly inspiring and helped me keep my head up! That is why he was my first choice and he was generous enough to say yes. You may be wondering why it isn't as long as the others, well Fabian and I had such a great time that for about an hour and a half we were literally just having a conversation from Aliens to all of Martin Luther King's valiant efforts and then I realized I barely asked my questions. I want Humans Helping Humans to be a space where you listen to these inspiring everyday people who saw a need and are still on the journey of fulfilling that need. They aren't finished with what they are doing, the fight for good is a never-ending battle. I want you, the listener, to get inspired, learn from their experience and tips, and either donate or volunteer to these people and organizations. I want you to go out and do some good and realize you don't have to be perfect or have all the knowledge in the world to make a difference. You are probably curious as to why Atlanta? I chose Atlanta because first and foremost it is my home as I watch the news every day, I just see bad news after bad news. I want to see more good news and with that being said I hope you can join my HHH Volunteer team and be part of the good news. I dream of a future where there is constantly good news being reported while there is a short segment of bad news. We are going to find out why Fabian Williams paints these figures and what it takes to be an artist of his caliber and more in this episode! You are going to get some tips on how to be a full-time artist. He is going to tell you why he chose to be a full-time artist rather than staying in corporate America. His methodology will be explained in this episode of HHH. Thanks again for listening!
