Episode 202 - John Blake

CNN journalist John Blake is on the podcast! His newest book, More Than I Imagined, tells his personal story. John is bi-racial, the son of a Black father and a White mother he grew up not knowing anything about. For a man who has been reporting on race for decades (and by his own admission is often exhausted by it), this memoir is an amazing gift. Through this writing, John sheds light on difficult topics like race relations and mental illness, while fostering thoughts on forgiveness and faith. This conversation is rich with nuance and hard questions we all need to be asking. I can’t wait for you to hear it!
