About Monica

Interview Questions + Topics
Radio + Podcast 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.

Common Ground with Jason Downs
KHTS FM 98.1 (Santa Clarita, CA)

"'Reality Bites' is a practical guide of hope and vision that sees a path for this country through unity, common sense, and common decency… Harris inspires us to step outside some of our comfortable illusions and become 'ideologically liberated'... It's up to us to heed the call; counter this culture of outrage and division with a desire to understand and unite each other if we want our struggling country to survive and thrive.”

Dorothy Toran

Executive Producer of Bravo's "Race In America: A Movement Not A Moment"


"Monica Harris fearlessly tackles some of the biggest challenges our country faces today. Her perspective is fresh and thought provoking. She dares to challenge us to focus on what unites instead of what divides. 'Reality Bites' offers us an opportunity to reframe solutions to help advance us forward. In a time where so much about our country is hanging in the balance, Monica’s book offers important considerations."

“The problem I have reading this book is that I can’t go fast. I have to keep stopping and thinking about it… Harris has this incredible ability to make people think without being didactic or off-putting.”
