Establishing Your Boundaries with Brentin Mock

One of the best parts of living through your youth into middle age is seeing the adults your peers grow to be. Brentin Mock is father, husband and writer. I have known Brentin since our time as young men figuring it out on Pitt’s campus in the mid 90s. Since that time Brentin has built a great body of work as writer for several media outlets. Contributing works on issues from environmental justice, our judicial system, music, and more. We talk fatherhood, being a man in partnership, and setting your priorities personally and professionally. Please take the time to read through his catalogue, add him to your rss feed, and share in your circles. I thank Brentin for making time to share with me. Please listen and add on.

Show Notes: Black History Month

This episode is a short drop on Black History Month. Why it exists and why it is important. I did two talks this month in the community about the value and importance of Black History month specifically. The study of history is always a valuable pursuit, so I was happy I had the opportunity to share my thoughts. I may share the audio from one of the talks when I get the sound in the near future. I am setting the stage for the coming episodes, so bare with me. A lot has been going on for me professionally that has cut into my production time, but I will be bringing it all to front in the near future. Please listen and add on if you feel the urge. Peace

Show Notes: My Oldhead

We are nothing without the people that we love. Zyhier is one of my big brothers and an important part my story. Everyone that I interview for the show will not be as close to me as he is,  so please tread with respect if you take issue with anything that comes up in our dialogue. Live, learn, teach. Peace
