In this episode, hosts Emily Cochran, Brianna Fallon, Nathan Mutale, and Meg Doyle cover many topics. First, Nathan highlights one of the 2023 Philadelphia Flower Show‘s most inspiring exhibits, displayed by Black Girl Florists founder Valerie Crisostomo. Then, Brianna talks with the founder and CEO of Blk Ivy Thrift, a small thrift store with a big message to educate people about black history while selling clothes that reflect items worn during the civil rights movement. Later, Emilie looks inside an inspiring relationship between a longtime coach and an aspiring basketball player. Finally, Nathan and Meg welcome special guest; award-winning journalist, podcast host, author, and president of the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists, Ernest Owens. They discuss his recently released book, The Case For Cancel Culture, PABJ, and much more. After the show, the hosts reflect on the conversation with Ernest and discuss what impacted them the most.
