Episode Description

Imagine being 17 years old in today's world: you can't remember a time when you did not have internet, cell phones, video games, or social media. For your whole life you've been bombarded with music, movies, and images that were banned for our generation. Violence, crime, sex, and drugs are glorified and romanticized on TV, radio, gaming, and film-- and all are just one click away. There has never been a time in your existence where there was peace in the world, and for as long as you can remember our country has been at war... Who is teaching the next generation the timeless, universal laws and principles of icons like Dr. King, Gandhi, Mandela, and Maya Angelou? Tune in this week as we discuss how we can pass the torch to the next generation-- because they ARE our future. Multi platinum, grammy nominated hip hop producer Kevin "Khao" Cates and international speaker and peace activist Rev. Carolyn Wilkins will join us and co-create SOLUTIONS in order to heal our wounded world.
