S4E20: Radical Education w/ Jocelyn Rodriguez

“I’m not here to reform. I’m here to abolish, I’m here to dismantle.” - Jocelyn Rodriguez

What does it mean to have a radical approach? For Joceyln Roderiguez, it’s about pushing the norm, and often being the only one doing it. Today we’re talking (surprize!) about dismantling white supremacy, this time with a focus on education & our value systems that surround it.

We didn’t want this conversation to end! Joceyln is an educator, entrepreneur, community advocate, and all-round powerhouse. Courthney can barely contain his excitement about having Joceyln on the show.
