Episode 044 - Let's Talk About Race

Here on the podcast, we talk about faith, finance, and everyday life. You have surely noticed that recently in our country, and really across the world, eyes have turned to racial injustice in America. I have not shied away from talking about race on the podcast because this topic definitely fits into the original premise. In this episode, I’ll give a little background on how faith, finance, and everyday life in America have been impacted by systemic racism and white supremacy. If you have felt hesitant to jump into the discussion or are not really sure what to think or feel or how to process right now, I invite you to listen to the end and check out one or two of the resources listed. Let’s talk about race.
