Voices from the future with Nyliek and Tiyanna Brooks: A local young sports talent spans the globe.

Voices from the future with Nyliek and Tiyanna Brooks: A local young sports talent spans the globe.

This week we visit the land of Gen Z aka IGen, aka Centennials, aka Nexters… Generation Z is the youngest, most ethnically diverse, the largest generation in American history, comprising 27% of the US population. Current Population: 23 million and growing rapidly. Gen Z is described as a maker generation, a far more pragmatic and practical generation who must architect and build the future we are all trying to imagine living in. The world doesn’t need more foundational layers, it needs a generation to create. There is a belief that the best way to predict the future is to build it. And Gen Z has…

Chocolate After Midnight: Own Your Magic featuring Deb Beroset

Chocolate After Midnight: Own Your Magic featuring Deb Beroset

Chocolate is an excellent metaphor for life. It’s rich, full of energy, and joyful to the senses. It also represents some of the struggles in life: guilt, complexity, and unrelenting desire for more. Midnight is the transition from one day to the next, a point in time. Today, Frankly Speaking with Tyra G invites all listeners to Chocolate after Midnight. Each time we share Chocolate after Midnight, we walk out of judgment and into a space of acceptance. We walk out of fear and into a place where “impossible” is merely a word to describe the degree of difficulty. Here…

Courageous Conversation: A Systems View of Sustaining All Life on Earth with Dr. Tom Hay

Courageous Conversation: A Systems View of Sustaining All Life on Earth with Dr. Tom Hay

Dr. Inger Anderson, Executive Director of the UN Environmental Programme addressed the UN in 2020 with the following words: “That we even need to utter the phrase “Sustaining All life on Earth” at all should ring alarm bells. We have long assumed that nature will provide for us no matter what. For too long we have seen the living world as an endless, inexhaustible resource for us to tap. But the veil is falling. Human activities are pushing the natural world’s limits to breaking point, placing the well-being of all life on earth, including our own, in grave peril. The…

How often do you as a woman consider: How Climate Anxiety Is Shaping Family Planning?

How often do you as a woman consider:  How Climate Anxiety Is Shaping Family Planning?

In recent months, the notion of family planning as a means of fighting climate change has emerged from the eco-warrior fringe and entered the mainstream public conversation. Last winter, on the Facebook page, BirthStrike, a group of about 650 people based in Britain, have pledged to forgo having children because of “the severity of the ecological crisis.” One post BirthStrike post shared the following: “For several months after her daughter was born in 1991, Lori Day had terrifying anxiety dreams about failing to protect her baby. Decades later, the recurring nightmares about her daughter’s safety have returned, triggered by the prospect of…

From convict to star citizen, a courageous conversation with Helenia Bragg.

From convict to star citizen, a courageous conversation with Helenia Bragg.

This story deserved a rewind. We all have times or seasons when it requires courage to make it from one moment to the next; to take the next step or to say the next word. And sometimes we let fear, shame, and guilt demonize our potential to overcome. What we discovered is that the ability to have a courageous conversation is often a process, a journey, not an event. It doesn’t always happen when it logically should; sometimes you have to grow into it.  And sometimes courageous conversations happen in and stay in our heads… or our hearts. Sometimes our…

What story do you tell yourself when the White House calls?

What story do you tell yourself when the White House calls?

This month’s theme, “Stories We Grew up with,” expands our appreciation of who we have become due to the stories we have been told and the ones we have told ourselves growing up. We look at how these stories have impacted our thoughts, our dreams; ultimately, I believe everyone has a story and is a story. Author Richard Kearney says in his book On Stories, “telling stories is as basic to human beings as eating. More so, in fact, for a while, food makes us live; stories are what make our lives worth living.” Isak Dinesen says, “To be a…

The blessings of legacy with Karen and Cheyenne Harris

The blessings of legacy with Karen and Cheyenne Harris

Legacy is about life and living. It’s about learning from the past, living in the present, and building for the future. The world isn’t connected only by molecules. It’s connected by stories, traditions, memories, hopes, and dreams. We are connected by the legacies passed down from those who came before us and the legacies we will pass down to those who come after us. English writer Dorothy Sayers, “Paradoxical as it may seem, to believe in youth is to look backward; to look forward, we must believe in age.” Today I have two guests that present legacy through different lenses.…

Legacy is for the living with father and son Courtney and Asa Nero

Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451 says, “Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built, or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way, so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you’re there. Dara Horn says. “Every person has a legacy. You may not know what your impact is, and it may not be something that you can write on your tombstone, but…

New weapons in the fight against human trafficking revealed with advocate Ms. Anne Basham

New weapons in the fight against human trafficking revealed with advocate Ms. Anne Basham

Researchers have found that sex traffickers often target children and youth with a history of maltreatment, sexual abuse, low self-esteem, and minimal social support. About 10,000 children a year suffer the horrors of commercial sexual exploitation in the United States. Each victim on average is forced to have sex more than five times a day. Yet the buyers who fuel the child sex trade are seldom held accountable. Most just blend back into their families, jobs, and neighborhoods. My guest at the table today is a wonderful resource to educate us about the human trafficking space. Beyond that, she is also an expert and advocate in the…
