Society & Culture
In our first episode, we explore a new definition of activism with two change-leaders breaking the mold of traditional activism and successfully bridging social divides. First, we get "comfortable being uncomfortable" with James, founder of Coffee with a Black Guy and learn there's always more than meets the eye when talking about racism. Then we pony up and dance our angst out with Emilia Richeson, creator of Pony Sweat, a "Fiercely Non-Competitive Body-Positive Dance Aerobics Celebration" in Los Angeles.
