I have a bit of a disclaimer to start us out: This episode talks about social justice—issues with race, repertoire challenges, and more. Some listeners may be uncomfortable, but I urge you to embrace discomfort as a symptom of change, and in this case, I believe it is positive change.
I also love episodes like this because it reminds me of why I created this podcast in the first place: To be a platform for knowledge from experts like my guest today, Dr. Kevin Johnson. I’ve known Kevin for a couple of years now and can testify to his authenticity and his willingness to be direct, open, and honest. I am incredibly grateful that he was willing to share this challenging conversation with us.
