This special podcast episode features conversations with When They See Us creator, co-writer and director Ava DuVernay together with the talented cast of the four-part docu-drama from Netflix. Since its release on May 31st, Netflix says When They See Us has been the most-watched series on the platform. Based on a true story, When They See Us is an historical account of the five teenagers wrongfully convicted of sexual assault in Central Park in 1989. The four-part series focuses on the young men – Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey Wise – who were sentenced between five and 15 years in prison and juvenile detention centers. In 2002, all five men were exonerated of their crimes after DNA evidence and a confession from the lone attacker, Matias Reyes, proved their innocence. Vanity Fair said, “But even the most eloquent and evocative documentaries don’t involve the viewer as deeply as a brilliant acting performance, the kind that DuVernay gets from Jharrel Jerome (as Korey Wise), Marquis Rodriguez (Raymond Santana), Ethan Herisse (Yusef Salaam), Asante Blackk (Kevin Richardson) and Caleel Harris (Antron McCray). Empathy springs from the tiny emotional inflections that make it all so agonizingly real.” In the second episode, Oprah speaks with the real-life exonerated five.
In a live appearance at UCLA’s Royce Hall, New York Times best-selling author, Rhodes scholar and decorated U.S. Army veteran Wes Moore asks a powerful question: “After years working at the same job, have you ever realized you've just been going through the motions for as long as you can remember?” Wes shares how he believes we can all discover and pursue our true life’s purpose. As a combat officer in Afghanistan, a White House Fellow and a Wall Street banker, Wes discusses his journey of self-discovery, which led him to walk away from financial success to create a more meaningful life.
International best-selling author of the phenomenon “Eat Pray Love,” Elizabeth Gilbert returns to “SuperSoul Sunday” to discuss her latest novel, “City of Girls.” Set in New York City during the 1940s, the epic story follows 19-year-old Vivian Morris as she comes of age during World War II, and follows her all the way through 2010. Elizabeth says Vivian’s quest to find her authentic self and challenge the societal expectations of the time mirrors her own life story. Elizabeth explains why she believes in the importance of creating work that inspires women to be their authentic selves. In a candid and emotional conversation, Elizabeth also provides an update on her personal life, sharing how she finds peace and healing after the death of her best friend and partner, Rayya Elias.
In a live appearance at UCLA’s Royce Hall, motivational speaker, life coach and New York Times best-selling author Gabrielle Bernstein shares five steps to what she calls “spiritual surrender.” In a deeply personal and emotional talk, Gabrielle explains why she believes the universe will always have your back. “It’s one of the most vulnerable talks I’ve ever given,” Gabrielle says.
Contemporary theologian, mystic and author Father Richard Rohr discusses his new book, The Universal Christ: How a Forgotten Reality Can Change Everything We See, Hope For, and Believe. A Franciscan friar for more than 40 years and founder of The Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Father Rohr shares why he believes the essential function of religion is to radically connect humanity with the world around us, and why “Christ” is another name for everything. He also explains true enlightenment as looking out from oneness and how these realizations can transform the way we live in our everyday world.
In a live appearance at UCLA’s Royce Hall, actress, social media disrupter and feminist Amandla Stenberg talks about the importance of vulnerability and finding strength in your identity. She shares her journey of becoming comfortable with her authentic self and loving who she was born to be. Amandla—who portrayed Rue in The Hunger Games, Madeline in Everything, Everything and Starr in The Hate U Give—was declared "one of the most incendiary voices of her generation" by Dazed magazine. The Ms. Foundation for Women also named Amandla the Feminist Celebrity of the Year in 2015.
Author, activist and Benedictine nun Sister Joan Chittister discusses her newest book, The Time Is Now: A Call to Uncommon Courage. In a powerful conversation, Sister Joan defines what it means to be a prophet in today's modern world, and challenges us to combat complacency and apathy in our own lives. She outlines the key steps we can all take to lift America (and the world) out of its current state of polarization and political disarray. Rather than wait for others to solve the problems of inequality, injustice and poverty, Sister Joan explains why it is both our moral and spiritual responsibility to take action ourselves, making the world a better place for all. 
In a live appearance at UCLA’s Royce Hall, author, entrepreneur and award-winning web host Marie Forleo explains why she believes everything in life is what she calls “figureoutable.” Marie wonders, “Why do some people struggle while others find a way to thrive, often despite the most challenging circumstances?” In exploring the answer, Marie shares the valuable life lessons her mother taught her about how to handle life’s inevitable problems. Marie also believes our attitude, spirit and tenacity can affect the outcome of any challenge that comes our way.
New York Times best-selling author, columnist and political commentator David Brooks discusses his new book, The Second Mountain: The Quest for a Moral Life. David explains there are two metaphorical mountains we must climb to live a moral life. He describes the “first mountain” life, which is self-centered, vs. the “second mountain” life, which is others-centered. David provides insight into how our culture operates from a “first mountain” perspective, by shaping us to be individualistic, but says it is the community approach to life where joy can be found. David also shares how his own suffering led him to discover a deeper spiritual and connected life.
In a live appearance at UCLA’s Royce Hall, New York Times best-selling author Glennon Doyle asks what would happen if we stopped being afraid of our pain. The founder of the online community Momastery and president of the nonprofit organization Together Rising, Glennon takes us on what she calls the “journey of the warrior,” explaining there is no easy way out when it comes to life’s challenges. “The willingness to dwell in our discomfort and truly listen is how we turn our pain into power,” she says.

This was good, until they started talking about the President ripping the fabric. I didn't vote for him, but we are more unified as people now, than we have been in years.
