Welcome to Episode 4 of Season 2!

In this episode, I speak with  former roommate Kelly Nichols. She was a theater major, a stand-up comedian, a singer/vocalist and is currently an advocate for all things about the environment and equity. We had an insightful conversation that touched upon perfectionism, White America, getting rid of the elephant in the room, and the privilege of (one of her kind of) intelligences. Our conversation led me to highlight the role of family in our identities, and to emphasize the privilege of a certain kind of intelligence .
