Great conversation on Guy Kawasaki's Remarkable People with Frederick Joseph, philanthropist, activist, and New York Times best-selling author. In this episode, you'll see how little Guy knows about current black culture, but at least he knows what he doesn't know. And he's willing to learn. Frederick Joseph created the largest GoFundMe campaign in history called the #BlackPantherChallenge. It raised over $950K, and allowed more than 75,000 children worldwide to see 'Black Panther' for free. Frederick was a national surrogate for the Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders presidential campaigns and was selected for the Forbes Under 30 List in 2019. Fred is the New York Times bestselling author of The Black Friend: On Being a Better White Person, and his new book, PATRIARCHY BLUES: Reflections on Manhood. The Black Friend is fantastic.

Christine Handy is a mother of two, a breast cancer survivor, international speaker, accomplished model, best-selling author, and a nationally-recognized humanitarian. Starting at age 11, Christine had a talent for modeling and was featured on campaigns for brands such as JCPenney, Neiman Marcus, Guess, and more. However, her lifestyle came to a halt at 35 when health issues and complications with surgery affected her career. Less than 10 years later, Christine was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer and struggled with her will to live. Through her 15 months of chemotherapy, she decided that if she was going to get a second chance at life, she was going to do it differently. She started a positive affirmation practice, built her self-esteem on her faith, and discovered who she was outside of the external validation of modeling. She started identifying as a “cancer disrupter” and made it her mission to uplift other people battling life-threatening illnesses. Part of that mission is her volunteer and board work with EBeauty, a wig exchange program that supports people diagnosed with breast cancer and raises awareness about the disease. In addition, she wrote and published a book based on a fictional depiction of her life and is currently working on her second book through her master's program at Harvard. Christine also still rocks the catwalk and recently walked in New York Fashion Week.

Lisa Hurley is a writer, TV host, Podcaster and Activist. We met when both of us were separately featured in Podcaster Inc Magazine. As soon as I heard Lisa's story, this episode became a priority. We are two totally different people who share a passion for trying to add value and positivity in the world. Our curiosity allows us to see our commonality and human spirit for positive change. Lisa explains how she deals with being an introvert, and how she created her podcast, The Introverted Sisters to stay connected to her sister in Barbados during the global pandemic. However, her purpose to speak up at injustice became too strong for her introversion after the murder of George Floyd. That day became a moment in time when we all asked ourselves some profound questions. What do we stand for in the world? How can we be a force for good? How can we be an ally to each other and leverage our collective to lead an inclusive life? How can our innate human curiosity serve our ability to understand what we don't know? This was an episode that was created by chance and served to prove how strangers become friends one conversation at a time.

In this episode you can hear Nadim Nashif and Mona Shtaya who both work for 7amleh, The Arab Center for the Advancement of Social Media and Digital Rights in the Palestinian context.  We talk about several aspects of their work. For example how social media is censoring Palestinians and others with a pro-Palestinian message. Many Palestinians have their social media profiles shut down without a valid reason and it is often hard to counter that.  Another issue that 7amleh works on is digital security and the use of Israeli spyware on Palestinians and beyond. Recently there was a scandal when it was discovered that Pegasus malware, produced by the Israeli NSO group, was found on devices of human rights defenders, journalists and state representatives.   Other topics we discuss are PayPal, that doesn't have integration for Palestinians to use with their local bank accounts, and Google Maps that does not show Palestinian cities and towns in the Westbank on their maps, while it does show clear details of illegal Israeli settlements.   Furthermore, we discussed a recent campaign to counter Hate Speech online. The campaign targets Palestinians to raise awareness about abusive language on social media and how to recognize it.This is their website: https://7amleh.org/(Click the English language button on top left)If you want to connect to Stories from Palestine podcast on social media or sign up for the newsletter, if you want to follow the YouTube channel or do a very appreciated donation to keep the podcast going, then use this linktree: https://linktr.ee/StoriesfrompalestineIf you enjoy listening to Stories from Palestine then you should also check out the podcast Jerusalem Unplugged.

We've long admired Abby Johnson for the courageous and authentic way she's navigated her transition from leading one of the busiest Planned Parenthood Abortion Clinics, to becoming one of the leading pro-life activists in this country. Her newest book, Fierce Mercy, shines a spotlight on a side of the abortion industry not frequently considered by most of us; the humanity not only of the lives lost to abortion, but to the very people who staff those clinics. From the ways they wind up in that industry, to their struggles when they decide to follow Abby's example and leave, Abby works to offer support to those wishing to leave the industry. We shot this episode with Abby live, so members of our Great American Syndicate could watch it live with us.

Activist, analyst, and author Brynn Tannehill joins me to discuss the recent leak of the Supreme Court's drafted majority opinion to overturn Roe v. Wade and Casey. Having extensively documented the factors leading to the fascist turn the United States is taking in her book ‘American Fascism: How the GOP Is Subverting Democracy' and elsewhere, Tannehill predicted a conservative stacked Supreme Court would, in due time, overturn several sweeping decisions the Court has made over the decades, including: the expansion and protection of reproductive rights, same-sex marriage, interracial marriage, and more. As the Republican Party openly moves into fascist territory and the Democratic Party fecklessly concedes to the GOP's sweeping agenda, whatever rights and protections that have been granted by the federal government for marginalized groups will be effectively rescinded. Overturning Roe v. Wade is just the beginning. A far-right autocracy is on the horizon. Brynn Tannehill is a leading trans activist and essayist, and has written for The New York Times, The Huffington Post, Bilerico, Slate, Salon, USA Today, The Advocate, LGBTQ Nation, The New Civil Rights Movement, as a blogger and featured columnist. She graduated from the Naval Academy with a B.S. in computer science in 1997, and earned her Naval Aviator wings in 1999 and flew SH-60B helicopters and P-3C maritime patrol aircraft during three deployments between 2000 and 2004. She served as a campaign analyst while deployed overseas to 5th Fleet Headquarters in Bahrain from 2005 to 2006. In 2008 Brynn earned a M.S. in Operations Research from the Air Force Institute of Technology and transferred from active duty to the Naval Reserves. In 2008 Brynn began working as a senior defense research scientist in private industry. She left the drilling reserves and began transition in 2010. She is the author of ‘Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Trans (But Were Afraid to Ask),' and ‘American Fascism: How the GOP Is Subverting Democracy.'
