Depression, Anxiety, and Panic Attacks are NOT signs of weakness, they are signs of trying to remain strong for far too long.
Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of. Neither is talking about it. And we, as a society, need to talk about it more!

First guest: A massively impressive, Mr. Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter! SO DIFFERENT to what I had expected
It's a FANTASTIC show, with awesome content, guests, and viewer diversity. It is erudite, elegant, expressive, sane, sensible, inclusive, and highly informative. It spans comedic moments, ethnic touchstones, deep concerns---and a worldview shared by billions of people of color on the planet.
Long may it wave! For a maiden voyage, so far, it appears that Mr. Jones has opined his way into what will, ARGUABLY, be called the best production for American people of color, and their allies (Read: Loving, normal, decent, caring, equalist people) in the public affairs/news/chat format space, than has ever been produced in decades, ever. Dare i call it "The 21st century "Like it Is"?
