Optimism + Self Pt. II
The hosts look to people who rely on their own identity to bring services or inspiring stories to the outside world. Each story provides a much-needed dose of inspiration, humor, or reminders for self-compassion.
The guest, Mthunzi Rhamphele, is a Black writer/comic who grew up in South Africa. His dad was a freedom fighter who helped topple the system of apartheid. He has survived war, racism, and even a brain tumor – all before the age of 25. He talks about use of irreverence and humor as a way to discuss and deal with difficult issues.
