Episode Description

I don't know people involved in the movement here in Las Vegas so everything I know is from news reports that most of the time leave me more confused than ever. It seems what makes it into the mainstream media are short video clips that simply push the viewpoint of the respective host. When I frst started asking my friends whatthey thought of the Black Lives Matter Movement I could tell it made many of them uncomfortable. I want this show to introduce the Black Lives Matter movement to people that may (like me) not have poeple thay can ask in their life. That alone says a lot about why this show is so needed, yes? When you hear my guests you will forever have a better understanding of #BlackLivesMatter and the movement... and I hope get inspired. Guests: Joshua Eaton and Kenny Wiley.

Social responsibility had not yet been coined as a phrase when Chris Tinney started a brokerage firm and became one of the first stock brokers to specialize in socially responsible investing. It was then he first saw the power behind the simple choices business, community leaders and consumers make every day.

His later experience in Fortune 100 management, as a Radio Station News director and Founder of Spread Peace USA give him a unique perspective that he brings to the show every week.
