In our second episode of Protégé Podcast Presents: Black Man Brilliance, I’m joined by Dr. Italo Brown, emergency room physician and health disparities scholar.
As a physician and clinical instructor at Stanford Hospital, Dr. Brown is on the front lines of research designed to improve access to healthcare for black men. Dr. Brown and I discuss why it’s important for black men to get an annual health check up (know your numbers!) and why seeing a therapist can improve our overall mental health.

Welcome to Protégé Podcast Presents: #BlackManBrilliance! Over the next 12 months, we are going to celebrate the unique and enduring brilliance of black men. I’m going to interview 20 extraordinary black men and talk about a variety of topics important to us as black men: mentoring, our physical and mental health, our political involvement, community service, marriage, finances, parenting, our culture, our identity, entrepreneurship, and much, much more. On our first of 20 episodes, I’m thrilled to welcome mentoring guru Stephen Powell. Stephen is chief programs and partnerships officer at National Cares Mentoring movement, a national nonprofit founded by Susan Taylor, the founder of Essence magazine. Stephen and I talk about the importance of self care, setting boundaries for toxic people, and the powerful and lasting effects of both youth and peer mentoring.

As we celebrate Thanksgiving this week and reflect on what we’re grateful for, I’m reminded of Desiree Robinson’s incredible story of resilience. What do you do when your Plan A in your professional and personal lives don’t work out? Desiree’s story is a reminder that we are stronger than we know, and that miracles can come from simple acts of kindness by our friends and family. It’s a special encore episode of Protégé Podcast for Thanksgiving 2019!
On this special Howard Homecoming edition of Protégé Podcast, I talk with media superstar Depelsha McGruder, the interim CEO of New York Public Radio. The Howard and Harvard Business School graduate talks about her humble childhood in Georgia, her rapid rise through Viacom, and why she started a nonprofit to help protect black boys. On the motivation segment, I encourage everyone to keep the magic going when they experience rough patches in their careers.

On this episode of Protégé Podcast, Guest co-host Shaunna Jones joins me to discuss this week’s big question: how do you manage issues of integrity and ethics when it comes to reporting malfeasance in your workplace? Should you report an ethics issue above your boss? And what should you consider before you blow the whistle? On the Motivation segment, I encourage everyone to, in the words of Prince, make heart decisions in business. On the Lit & Quit segment, Shaunna and I tackle cancel culture, free speech, and racial solidarity within communities of color.
