A weekly show for listeners to hear stories and conversations that allow us to explore subtle events and interesting social interactions too often ignored. These stories are meant to arouse the emotions of listeners towards self-improvement and consider how our behaviors impact others. There have been many moments in my life where I have wanted to share interesting stories that can be used by others to improve their own lives. With 22 years of educating youth and adults, I would like to share topics with you that will push against social norms and shift your mindset to consider alternative views. Sometimes, the best advice can be collected from the stories of others.
