#96 - Shaina Conners - COO of Global Sisterhood on building global communities

I interviewed Shaina Conners, COO of Global Sisterhood, about scaling a community, trusting her instincts, and moving cities.

I sat down with filmmaker and thinker Michael Morgenstern to talk about his fascination with truth, the Internet, and how reality is becoming more and more warped each day.

This week I spoke to Jenna Hage-Hassan of 4Thought Studios, an app development company based out of Detroit.

This week I spoke to Taylor Sharp, who directed an amazing new documentary called Hoops Africa, a collection of stories celebrating the growth of basketball on the African continent.

Episode 76 - Christopher Rivas - MILLENNIALS DON'T SUCK PODCAST

This week I talked with Christopher Rivas about his obsession with storytelling, our shared distaste for social media in the context of it being more necessary than ever to curate a "personal brand," and why he stayed in Windsor Castle this summer.
