UnBelievable World w/ BeHoward
I sit down with the first and only 2-time guest, BeHoward. We discuss his latest musical projects, UnBelievable, and Morning Coffee. Our exchange is full of captivating chitchat and dramatic dialogue. From vulnerability, politics, and purpose, to “God fearing white men,” it is a non-stop roller coaster ride of conversation. Our discussion ultimately leads us to two new segments: “Speak Your Truth” & “The Seven Wonders of the World.” It is truly an UnBelievable World.

The Cost of Murder
Every year the police are found guilty of misconduct. When legal settlements are paid, who suffers the expense? Well, contrary to popular belief, it’s not the boys in blue. The recent $12 million settlement received by the family of Breonna Taylor compelled me to examine the true cost of murder, and how it affects the entire nation. The findings reveal a country that is perpetually engaged in policies of self-destruction for the sake of upholding discrimination and inequality. https://prospect.org/api/amp/politics/trumps-40-biggest-broken-promises/ https://www.governing.com/topics/finance/gov-police-misconduct-growing-financial-issue.html?AMP https://www.npr.org/sections/live-updates-protests-for-racial-justice/2020/09/23/916022472/cost-of-racism-u-s-economy-lost-16-trillion-because-of-discrimination-bank-says
