Business has been booming over the last 6 months so I have less time to podcast than I originally anticipated but I wanted to release a special Black History Month episode with the content that I covered in a summer conversation with my good friend, James Proby, founder and Chief Ethos Officer of the Men’s Xchange in Colorado Springs, CO.
I have about 5 more podcasts left to produce and new interviews planned, so stay tuned. In the meantime, keep the suds at bay and put your clothes away.
I’ve included the show notes below:
Content Warning: Racism, Police Brutality, Slavery
It’s The Black History Month Episode!
We’re talking George Floyd, Rodney King, Breonna Taylor, the history of slavery, and protesting in the time of coronavirus and how you can be an ally through this country’s current social awakening!
Throw those clothes in the dryer, pull up a cuppa, sit back and tune in to another episode of Laundry and Other Mysteries with your host, Desiree Hickson, also known as The Laundry Diva.
