The mind is most certainly a terrible thing to waste. What is even more terrible is that many of the obstacles to educational advancement for certain people still exist. Despite these obstacles, some, unfortunately not the vast majority persist, persevere, and complete the highest level of education, the “Doctor of Philosophy”. Amazingly, it’s a class that comprises about 2% of the population. Today we chat with two members of a three-author team: Ed Ds Emerald Templeton and Onda Johnson (Ed D Bridgett Love was unable to attend) who penned “Evaluating Marginalized Voices in Academe: Lessons for a New Generation of Scholars”. This book is a collaboration chronicling the experiences of minorities who have navigated the topography of completing the highest level of academia. Listen in as Ed Ds Templeton and Johnson share their experiences, accomplishments, and views that led them to develop this memoir. This is a remarkably interesting conversation that you do not want to miss.

The great thing about American Society is that the system of things we live in fosters a never-ending opportunity for engaging in the democratic process. Politicians, or most of them are limited to the number of times they can hold an office, they most certainly must compete constantly to keep that office periodically. The going perception is that this is not the case for members of the legal or judicial system. As for the most part, they are appointed to the positions they hold. Today we visit with an aspiring judge in the Philadelphia, PA District. Attorney Gregory Yorgie-Girdy, who is running for Judgeship while simultaneously representing and juggling several demographic characterizations- a gay African American man, a husband and father to name a few. Listen in as we get his perspective and his platform as he attempts to become the first “man of many hats” seated as District Judge.

Tam LawrenceOften times when we see lemon aid, we have no knowledge about the lemons that made it, or where they came from. Metaphorically of course, when talking about the lives of successful people, invisible are the obstacles, hurdles and tribulations transversed to get to where they are. It requires peeling back the layers of life, similar to an onion, removing those layers can make you cry, or make you angry. Then again, those layers can be used as motivation to strive for greatness. We've conversed with some who have done so over the years, Less Brown for instance.
