Hindsight is 2020 - Season Two Has Come to An End
2020 has been a year like no other year in the history of our nation. It brought with its pandemics a huge weight upon our bodies, hearts, minds, and spirits. Is it any wonder that people are dying in their spirits even if they aren't dying in their bodies? We see this clearly in the rising evidence of mental instability in ourselves and others. As we wrap up this season I do hope that despite how hard 2020 has been for us all, that you felt empowered by the guest featured on each and every episode of season two. My hope was that we would acknowledge the problems and pains and provide pathways to healing, and to joy. So I thank YOU! I thank you for listening, sharing, and applying what you have learned from these last two seasons. I look forward to connecting with you again, in season three of The Delicious Truth. As always, there is a hug in your future, if you want one! XOXO Glo

Season 2 - Episode 11: We need to Change. Now what does that mean?
My favorite artist and poet is no other than THEE MICHAEL JACKSON. When my next guest and I planned this episode, I couldn't help but think of Michael's song Man in the Mirror. There is a TV show called "What would you do?" When something wrong is happening, even when there are many people around, there is rarely an instance where all the onlookers get involved. This is called the Bystander effect. Everyone just assumes that someone else will do it. I'd take that and go a step further. Either we believe someone else will do it, or we are too afraid of what doing it will cost us. No matter what side of racism we stand on, neither side can be complicit. We gotta change. But what does that mean exactly. Well, our guest on this episode of the delicious truth helps us unpack the why behind our inaction and how we can change. I am so excited to introduce you to André Robert Lee. André is a public speaker ON TOPICS RELATED TO issues OF Anti-Racism, Inclusion, and Diversity for educational and corporate institutions. André directed and produced The Prep School Negro and took it on a worldwide tour over the past 10 years. He served as producer on the documentary, I’m Not Racist…Am I? André received a Fellowship in 2013, and was tasked with Directing and Producing the 12-month series, Life Cycles of Inequity: A Colorlines Series on Black Men. he later created The Election Effects Project for Spike TV. André’s next film project is titled, Virtually Free. He directed this story about incarcerated youth in Richmond, Virginia. Special Guest: André Robert Lee.

Season 2 - Episode 10: Beginning to Examine the Structures of Racism in Corporate America
Back in June, Harvard Business Review published the following fact. "From 1619 to 1965, this country had laws, policies, and practices — from slavery to Jim Crow to redlining — that legally separated white and Black people in an attempt to maintain a white supremacist society. The inhumanity required for people to function in such a society — to dehumanize others and be dehumanized — has left its mark on our nation and, by extension, our organizations in innumerable ways." - Ben Hecht A few of the most common ways we see it are in hiring, compensation, and advancement, and retention. We know these because of all of the "diversity & inclusion" programs set in place in companies across America. However, there are many silent systems that often go undetected that keep the status quo. Not only is our guest today actively working to help organizations address these structures, he actively works to address them in his own organization. Scott Hoesman is the Founder of Inquest Consulting, a consulting organization that helps individuals, teams, and organizations think, lead, and interact inclusively. Scott has been doing this work for 23 years. Before COVID Scott dedicated 40% of his time with Global leaders helping global leaders understand how Diversity and Inclusion thinking can transform their organizations. Go ahead and listen. It's delicious, I promise. Special Guest: Scott Hoesman.

Season 2 - Episode 9: The Relationship Between Bias and Systemic Racism
When the “New North America” was established, it was clear that black people were not human or equal to white people, even after the civil rights movement. Consequently the architects of society had a non-inclusive cultural standard to adhere to when developing our society. This is where bias comes in. When power and bais marry, they produce systemic racism. All of the systems of our society were built by white men. Our criminal justice system, employment system, housing system, health care system, political system, education system, etc... Even well intentioned folks have built systems that exclude the interest of all that weren’t granted a seat at the table. The side effect being all of the infamous ISMs and phobias. Institutional racism, also known as systemic racism, is a form of racism that is embedded as normal practice within society or an organization. It can lead to such issues as discrimination in criminal justice, employment, housing, health care, political power, and education, among other issues. We are currently experiencing another moment, where the issues of race and injustices are visible enough for everyone to pay attention. The key being everyone. People of color experience it every day. While not all are a visible and clear as the murder of George Floyd, they show up in a way that steals peace and joy from not only those who experience racial acts directly but all of us. Our guest today is a wonderful and accomplished human being and he is also a gentleman. Howard Ross, is the author of ReInventing Diversity: Transforming Organizational Community to Strengthen People, Purpose and Performance, (published by Rowman and Littlefield in conjunction with SHRM in 2011), and the Washington Post best seller, Everyday Bias: Identifying and Navigating Unconscious Judgments in Our Daily Lives, (published by Rowman and Littlefield in 2014). His latest book, Our Search for Belonging: How Our Need to Connect is Tearing Us Apart, was released by Berrett-Koehler in May of 2018. On this episode of The Delicious Truth, Howard helps us understand the real danger in bias and how we can recognize it, own and manage it. You don’t want to miss this.Special Guest: Howard Ross.

Season 2 - Episode 8: Honoring All of Our Parts
Have you ever said or thought that you could be great if only a certain part of you would let you? Maybe a phrase like, “I don’t know why I keep letting this partner back in my life? I’m never going to find love.” or “I could be healthy, but I can’t seem to stop eating the wrong things.” Usually these thoughts are pretty normal and can begin a dialogue about restoring one's power and sense of self. But when we are addressing larger dysfunctions like eating disorders, addiction, phobias etc.. the exchange between your favored self and the part of you that you have identified as your hated self are at odds and prevents health. That is why Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy is such a powerful tool. It is a process that allows us to address every part of ourselves with respect, because we recognize that our inner parts contain valuable qualities and our “Core Self” knows how to heal, allowing us to become integrated and whole. Listen, we can’t possibly act in love for others if we don’t know how to love and honor our full selves. Our guest today Madeleine Warren is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), specializing in the area of trauma recovery. She completed her graduate studies and counseling internship at Northwestern University's Family Institute, and worked for ten years in Community Mental Health as an outpatient therapist, while maintaining a private practice. She will share how IFS therapy is a powerful tool that can be used to help us to heal ourselves, prevent causing long term harm to our loved ones and live a life filled with more joy. Tune in, you don’t want to miss this one. Special Guest: Madeleine Warren, LCPC, LMFT.

Season 2 - Episode 7: Searching for AND in a World of OR
Humans seem to be obsessed with labels. The idea that you look at a certain pronoun, assign it a proper label which comes with a certain definition. With these labels and definitions we expect that these pronouns would mostly adhere to their respective labels. It’s either this OR that. Rarely do we accept pronouns that are this label and AND something else. Women are this, men are that. Cats are like this, dogs are like that. Americans are this, Africans are that. Christians are this, Atheist are that. People of color are this, white people are that. Any behavior or label in addition to the predetermined label being added is “Unnatural.” And you know how people treat things deemed unnatural. The fascinating thing about this behavior is that humans are constantly evolving and there is so much left to be discovered in the world. What we know about any given thing today is limited to now. That is why labels are such a problem. They are severely limited to whatever was known at the time that the label and subsequent definition was assigned. The result has led us to two kinds of people. Those of us who fight to ensure that “natural” is protected and those of us who fight to challenge what it means to be natural. I think what is better than fighting is embracing “AND,” and leaving behind “OR.” If we only acknowledged the fact that nothing is an absolute we can embrace the limitless possibilities for any and everything. On this episode our guest knows first hand what it means to live within one's labels and to test the boundaries but not shedding them but adding to them. David has extensive experience strategically partnering with individuals, teams, and organizations to heighten effectiveness by enhancing communication and deepening understanding of the legal, financial, cultural, and/or dynamic issues at play. Please join us as he shares his journey in searching for AND in a World of OR. Special Guest: David Stone.

Season 2 - Episode 6: One Woman's Journey to Becoming a Recovering Racist
Racism is defined as a prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against a person or people on the basis of their membership in a particular racial or ethnic group, typically one that is a minority or marginalized. By that definition, anyone, even those in the majority can suffer from racism. That is not the case. Racism is only effective because of its power to impact the lives of people on a systemic level. People of color aren’t upset about the aforementioned definition, it’s the real definition that keeps us fighting for equality and equity. Racism is the marginalization and/or oppression of people of color based on a socially constructed racial hierarchy that privileges white people. For most people of color this isn’t a definition that is hard to wrap your head around, but believe it or not, many of our white brothers and sisters find the idea that they benefit from the color of their skin and have more “privilege” in our society than people of color is offensive. The challenge here is that they think that the presence of privilege removes the struggle from their journey. With all that has happened to people of color in America, it’s hard to believe that some people still deny the truth. On this episode, we are speaking to my friend, my sister who, in her words, is a recovering racist. Join us as she shares her journey from believing what she was raised to believe to seeing the world for exactly what it is. Pat Lange, is a wife, mom, grandmother, volunteer, leader and budding social activist. She is the former director of Marriage Initiatives at Kensington Church. Former business trainer, program developer and consultant. She has a strong automotive background both as an employee of GM and as a trainer to the Big Three.

Season 2 - Episode 5: Stopping and Preventing Bullying and Taking Care of Yourself
Bullying is something that most of us are pretty familiar with. In fact, at a time, bullying had been so normalized that for a long time, there were no formal interventions. People just accepted that there were bullies and the bullied and that in time things would change. Unfortunately, bullying has only progressed and has evolved into many forms. According to stopbullying.org: Students ages 12-18 experienced various types of bullying, including: Being the subject of rumors or lies (13.4%) Being made fun of, called names, or insulted (13.0%) Pushed, shoved, tripped, or spit on (5.3%) Leaving out/exclusion (5.2%) Threatened with harm (3.9%) Others tried to make them do things they did not want to do (1.9%) Their property was destroyed on purpose (1.4%) There was a time where we thought bullying occurred in school. However, children face bullying at home by their loved ones and with the rise of the internet, bullyings seem to have an incredibly far reach into our lives. Now, you may or may not know your bully. Believe it or not, bullying, short of harassment isn’t against the law. States have local legislation against bullying, but nothing has been passed at a federal level. Our guest today has the first-hand experience, being both a bully and an interventionist. One day when she was at work, serving as the PR professional for Muhammed Ali, that she saw how pervasive bullying and the subsequent impact was on even young children. When Muhammed verbally surveyed a group of elementary school students about being bullied and wanting to harm themselves as a result, 30% raised their hands. Betty Hoeffner is the co-founder and CEO of Hey U.G.L.Y.

Season 2 - Episode 4: Working with Native American Communities
Native Americans, also known as American Indians, Indigenous Americans, and other terms, are the indigenous peoples of the United States. Indigenous peoples are the first people. We recently, for the first time in US history celebrated Indigenous Peoples day, formerly Christopher Columbus Day. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling the newly branded day. When many of our fellow Americans think of Native American people, vivid images of headdresses, wild and free dancing, mystery, and what is most likely the most popular thought would-be “cowboys and Indians.“ The relationship between Indigenous peoples of America and newcomers is complicated, to say the least. These complications have driven such a deep divide that they are indeed different worlds. Despite Indigenous Americans often living on sovereign lands apart from the majority of Americans, they are experiencing the same disparities in their lives that other people of color in America experience. The impact of COVID-19 on Native peoples have gone wholly unreported. In fact, there is no news concerning Native people, readily available to the non-native population. This has contributed to the ignorance about the very people who paved the way for every newcomer to this land to live and thrive. Our guest today, John Bird “Elk Child,” is a Diversity and Inclusion professional and has a Masters in Education. Although he was trained as a clinician he quickly realized that he had to choose between doing clinical mental health work or community/organizational work. He chose to work with communities and organizations and has been doing some form of that for the past 35 years. John is also a proud member of the Black Foot People, who reside in both the U.S. and Canada. During this episode, John shares the rich history of the Black Feet Nation, belief systems, and communities of some native people that are in such contrast with the way the majority of Americans live, that it seems almost otherworldly. Tune in, take it in and apply all that you can to your life and the lives of others. Special Guest: John Bird.

Season 2 - Episode 3: The Spirit of Inclusion
Inclusion is defined as the action or state of including or of being included within a group or structure. We are familiar with that right? On the playground, everyone gets picked to be on the team. Sucks to be picked last. At home, older siblings are required to include their younger siblings. Spouses or lovers are reminded by national holidays to include one another. At work, there are affinity groups, conferences, workshops and on a government level, affirmative action policies for the places we work, and the institutions in which we are educated include to include diverse persons. These are all acts of inclusion. What all of these different acts in different areas of our lives have in common is that they are acts without heart. You also know that they are just acts because they feel like we are just going through the motions. This is why they are not sustained in any element of our lives. We don’t appreciate being chosen when the picker didn’t have a choice in the matter. We don’t feel so special when someone celebrates our love because it’s required, or when people are being trained to respond to our diverse identities instead of naturally embracing us as 100% of who we are. Our guest today perfectly phrased what inclusion really means. Acts of inclusion is only as effective as the spirit in which it is done is. The motivation of persons can’t be a quota or to meet an obligation of some sort. It has to be in a desire to create a spirit of inclusion within structures and groups where all parties can then reap the benefits. Cecilia B. Loving, is the Deputy Commissioner/Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer Diversity and inclusion Officer, for the New York City Fire Department. She a D/I leader who has been responsible for creating and deploying D/I strategy, improving the infrastructure to support the strategy, and ensuring that the organization’s foundational principles of inclusiveness and diversity are integral to all of its internal and external policies, work and practices.

Season 2 - Episode 2: The Revelation of Being a Caregiver
According to a research study by AARP and the National Alliance for Caregiving, there are approximately 43.5 million caregivers in the United States that have provided unpaid care to an adult or child in the last 12 months, in 2019. The United States has 331,002,651 citizens. This is a subject that impacts 13% of the population, and frankly, there isn’t enough support and awareness on the subject to offer adequate support. This issue is something that needs to be discussed. That is why I invited our guest today to share his first-hand experience with us, on what it’s like to suddenly find himself in the position of Caregiver and how he manages to keep himself healthy both physically and mentally while doing so. Not only is Brian a caregiver he is also still a working professional. Brian oversees the development and delivery of client solutions for L+C Learning and brings over 25 years of corporate, non-profit, and academic experience to his role. For most Americans, establishing a work-life balance is already a challenge, Brian not only offers us insight into how he is managing it but resources and ways of making it all work despite the challenges that come along.

Season 2 - Episode 1: Rethinking "Microaggressions" and Bold Conversations with Dr. Michael Baran
Microaggression is a term used for brief and commonplace daily verbal or behavioral indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative attitudes toward stigmatized or culturally marginalized groups. The fact is that you have likely been on both the giving and receiving end of microaggressions. When people speak of microaggressions most often they are talking about the subtle acts of exclusion that black people deal with on a day-to-day basis. The root of these acts feels like just another way that black people are subjected to racism. However, microaggressions aren’t exclusive to any one race, gender, ethnicity, religion, or any other identity. Our guest, Michael Baran, PhD is a social scientist and has been a DEI speaker, author, a practitioner for the last 20 years. You don’t want to miss this delicious truth about the aggression that lives in all of us and ways to lessen expressing it, thus lessening the harm done to others.

Episode 12: Post Traumatic Slavery Disorder (PTSD) Part II
2020 has brought about a lot of loss. And loss, especially unexpected loss can be traumatic. As if America wasn’t already fraught with social issues, COVID-19 has further shed light on our challenges. In the last episode, we broke down the root of slavery as it existed in America. Let’s recap the definition of slavery: Someone is in slavery if: forced to work – through coercion, or mental or physical threat; trapped and controlled by an ’employer’, through mental or physical abuse or the threat of abuse; physically constrained or have restrictions placed on their freedom of movement; In this episode, we’ll go deeper and explore the existence of slavery in various forms, all over the world. Forced marriage, also known as child marriage, Child slavery, Human trafficking, Debt Bondage, and so much more, contributes to the underbelly of societies across the world. 50% of all slave labor is performed by minors! Our children are the future. What do you think they will produce under these conditions? "The child who is not embraced by the village will burn it down to feel it's warmth." - African Proverb

Episode 11: Post Traumatic Slavery Disorder (PTSD) with Brandies Mevaa
We are in a state of unrest. Unrest has occupied us, and I mean all of us. Whether you are black, white, rich, or poor, to be human is to be connected to one another and we are all in a state of unrest, and this unrest is a substantial barrier to joy. In America, we have a deep problem with division. Labels and hierarchies are established to keep the system going, in favor of the favored. These systems and supports for that system were established long before Mr. Columbus rediscovered America, OKAY! Yet, we still pay into the hands of those who benefit from the inequity, division, and dehumanization of our brothers and sisters. Slavery is a CaseStudy on how this system works. You see slavery has always been driven by economics and managed by emotions. The rich get richer and the poor get poorer because the rich keep them that way. Why? Riches = power. They weaponized emotions and mind control to leverage fear. Survivors of American slavery are still affected by the most brilliantly diabolical manipulation of minds and hearts for profit and gain ever. That is called Post Traumatic Slavery Disorder (PTSD). Join me and Brandies Mevaa and we set the table for a hearty course on slavery and all that is leaves in its wake. Special Guest: Brandies Mevaa.

Episode 10: From Military Service to Civilian Life with Greg Jenkins
I'm a proud supporter of our troops and vets, in fact, I have very close loved ones who have served in the military. No matter which branch they serve in, they do a great service in both America and countries abroad. The military has a substantial presence in our lives and whether we are conscious of it or not, they have a brand that conveys that the military is a family, career, a proud institution. No matter our individual impressions of military life, we automatically believe that by joining that we will be granted access to things like: A guaranteed paycheck and Cash Bonuses Education Benefits Advanced and Specialty Training Travel Option for full-time or part-time service Health and Dental Care Special home loans and discounts Highly sought-after skills, leadership, and training experience And it’s true. All of these benefits and more are afforded to you via a career in the military. However, not all vets are the same, and not all that serve are career military service members. That is why this topic is so important. Signing your employment contract with the US military could be a great opportunity or a grave disappointment if you don’t truly understand the realities of military life. Our guest today Greg Jenkins is the Founder & CEO of Greg Jenkins Consulting, 28+ years of US Army Service, Retired Sergeant Major, Diversity & Inclusion practitioner, life-long learner. He has committed to helping both military and prospective military service members better understand the opportunities provided by the military and supporting members and families transition back into civilian life.

Episode 9: Dating in 2020 with Lorren & Marco
On this episode, we believe that love is greater than anything. Our relationships to ourselves and all things outside of ourselves when operating from a place of love has the best outcomes. The most fundamental loving relationship is between romantic partners. The desire to meet, fall in love and form lasting partnership is something that unites us as humans. Before the internet, you'd meet at a place of worship, schools, bars, concerts or maybe the library. Sure that still happens but 48% of 18- to 29-year-olds say they have ever used a dating site or app, and the share is 38% among those ages 30 to 49. Lesbian, gay or bisexual (LGB) adults are roughly twice as likely as those who are straight to say they ever used a dating platform (55% vs. 28%). It seems that online dating is how at least half of us are finding potential partners. The internet is the information highway, and in this case, the highway to love. On this episode I sat down with Marco (who identifies as gay) and my daughter Lorren, (who identifies as straight). Both are single, and one is happily so. Lorren is a beautiful black woman who is Navigating her career and the dating scene in LA. She is an actor and artist, who is single and ready to mingle. Marco, is a handsome black man who is a successful PR professional, in LA. He is happily dating, but not seeking anything serious. Both are originally from the Midwest, and will share the experiential truth about dating in 2020. Some of these facts we cover in this episode are eyebrow raising.

Episode 8: Recidivism -Why? Challenges and benefits of eliminating the culture of repeated criminal and antisocial behavior patterns in the USA.
Recidivism refers to a person's return to state or federal custody, after the person has already served time for a previous crime. A U.S. Sentencing Commission report on recidivism among federal prisoners, released on January 24, 2019, showed that nearly 64% of prisoners who had been convicted of violent offenses were arrested within eight years compared with about 40% of those convicted of nonviolent offenses. Meanwhile, the process of remanding folks to custody is supposed to be a form of “rehabilitation.” But the numbers don’t lie. The US prison system was established roughly around 1891. The recidivism rate leads one to wonder why we keep doing the same thing if it doesn’t yield the intended result, or does it? Some would say that criminals need to be kept off the street for the safety of our society. But what does that really mean? If remanding offenders into state and federal prisons worked, why would there be such a high rate of recidivism rate? Just like the truth, this challenge is layered. It impacts the quality of life for all Americans, not just former offenders and their families. Our guest today Dav Lewis will help to unpack recidivism and why it’s not as simple as locking up chronic offenders. Dav is the Founder and Executive Director of 2nd Chances.Life.

Episode 7: Great Leadership: Why and how it matters with Megan Davis Lightman
Leadership is the action of leading a group of people or organization. Leadership by itself doesn’t actually default to good or bad, it just is. Maybe that’s because good and bad leadership is subjective? I find that odd, but nonetheless, it's true. Historically speaking there have been folks in leadership that have divided the communities and organizations they lead over whether they were good or bad leaders. So what are we to do about it? We think that by getting to the root of what leadership is intended to be and why that matters, we can all be and choose great leaders who make things better for "the whole." Our guest Megan Davis Lightman is an accomplished CEO, Independent Board Director, and Advisor with over 25 years successfully partnering with business leaders and boards of directors in some of the most challenging industries, guiding them through critical strategic decisions that deliver transformative impact. That’s right, transformative. Megan is no yes woman. She only works with leaders who want to be great leaders. On this episode Megan will take us beyond basic leadership and into great leadership.

Money is complicated. Mix it with a pandemic and it can get beyond complicated to down right sticky. We’ve all heard that we should be seeking “Financial freedom,” what does it really mean?

In some realities, people have lost their jobs and now there is no income coming in. Saving or putting away anything seems impossible. With the state of the economy and the unemployment rate increasing each month, planning for good and bad times can be the difference between worrying and peace.
