This episode was deep for me. We recorded the episode over a week ago, before we had heard about the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. I listened back to this episode as protests are still going on in the US, Canada, and around the world. We discussed topics like (toxic) masculinity, #MeToo, and White privilege which seem even more important as I educate myself and do the work of becoming a better human being and dive down the rabbit-hole of my White privilege. Thank you to Paul for having the guts to have this incredible discussion with me!
