Radio + Podcast: Recent Interviews
Host Jason Downs talks with Monica and Lou Esbin about the bias of corporate-controlled media in the U.S. and how it affects our perceptions of people and events.
Monica Harris is a black author, but when she blogged about an "anti-racist" exhibit at an African American museum that she thought was racist and offensive, the politically-correct mob turned on her. In a freewheeling discussion, Monica discusses how 'wokesters' now sound a lot like the alt-right they condemn and what she thinks it will take to bring free speech back to public discourse.
Monica joins Jason to discuss the release of her new book, "Reality Bites: Insights on Bridging the American Divide."
Downs and Monica discuss the results of Election 2020 and whether it will further widen the divide between "red" and "blue" America.
Host Izolda Trakhtenberg and Monica discuss how mainstream media and Big Tech create division in America through censorship and the distortion of our collective reality -- and what we can do overcome this. Listen here and on YouTube.
Monica joins host Melissa Lopez to discuss her relocation from southern California to Montana, how she reinvented herself professionally and personally in the process, and what she learned about Americans of all races and political persuasions along the way. (Also streaming on Podbean, Spotify, iheart, Apple, and Pandora).
Monica joins Jason and guests Lou Esbin and Matt Denny on Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday to discuss the racial divide and King's focus on the greater American divide -- socio-economic inequity -- in the final year of his life.
