Description

Conversations of Humanness + Creativity | Humanitou is about humannesss and creativity.  These interviews are about cultivating a space for vulnerable, courageous dialogue and sharing. And in the process, I’m challenging all of us to truly listen, with openness and empathy, to others’ stories and to hear ourselves in them. Together, we will challenge the truths we hold about ourselves and each other. The Humanitou Podcast is about connection and empowerment through conversations of humanness and creativity, yours and mine.

Jamal Parker is a two-time International Slam Poetry Champion. He grew up in Japan, where he first explored his poetry, and in Florida, where as a teenager he first came to recognize the politics of race with the murder of Trayvon Martin nearby. In this conversation, we cover a range of topics, many of which you can find laid bare by Jamal in his poetry and performances, including: identity and blackness in America, mental health and faith. We also talk about how Jamal's love of comic books and superheroes connected him with his poetry.   
Cody Oldham is a professional wildlife and landscape painter who lives with his family -- and mountain lions that Cody’s dad rehabilitates for return to the wild -- on 20 acres in the mountains of Colorado. Cody also is a rather precocious and self-motivated 15-year-old who has a penchant for stylish men's wear, preferring to wear a tie and pocket watch even while he paints in his studio. 
He’s appeared in National Geographic magazine, the Washington Post, Huffington Post and on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, among other places in the media. Not to mention his work in visual and performance arts, public speaking and in other creative disciplines. In galleries, museums, at universities and other venues -- and on the street. We talk about his work and how it addresses identity and stereotypes, pain and healing. We talk about struggles and resilience, impermanence and criticism. And, as two dads in their 40s, we get into matters of fatherhood and masculinity as we saw it as boys and now live it as men. Among other things. Gregg gives us a ton of food for thought in a short time here. Let’s get to it.
In this inaugural Humanitou Podcast episode, I talk with my amazing wife, Becca Williams. I reveal a secret I’ve been holding throughout our 17-year relationship, something I’d been playing it cool with since our beginning and just decided now’s the time to ’fess up. We get into some intimate experiences we’ve shared along the way but haven’t talked about for many years: the decision to have kids and the miscarriages that occurred in the process. Becca tells why she went into the Peace Corps in her 20s — and subsequently dropped out. She also shares how she applies her spiritual practice of yoga to life “off the mat,” including in her career as a consultant in the technology field. Among other things.
