I’ve had a lot of good conversations in my life. And this conversation with Leticia O. Adams? It ranks right up there at the top. In today’s episode, Leticia and I sit down together and discuss such timely (yet seemingly eternal) topics as poverty, privilege, and racism.
Flipping the Script on Poverty and Privilege
I think we can all agree that there are conversations that we have in our lives that affect us deeply. They rock our world just enough to leave us thinking and processing long after the talking has stopped. This was one of those for me and I hope it will be for you, too.
There’s no way around it, this is a challenging episode. It’s one that will ask you to reconsider certain prejudices, hear another woman’s story with an open heart, and will prompt you to learn and grow. At the same time, though, it’ll make you laugh and provide some concrete steps for moving forward into a new frame of mind.
Content warning: We discuss the death by suicide of Leticia’s oldest son. If that is not a topic that is good for your heart right now, I understand. I love you. And I might suggest that you return to the episode at another time.
