What are you thankful for?
In this episode of the podcast Joe welcomes Devan Sandiford to the show and what follows is an extremely deep and thoughtful conversation around the way we move through life as individuals and collectively as a community. It truly feels like a conversation between old friends and we can't wait for Devan to come back on the show.
Devan is a published writer and four-time New York City Moth StorySLAM champion. His stories have been featured in the Washington Post, The Moth Podcast, Seattle NPR affiliate KNKX, Speak Up Storytelling, and several other outlets. His story—The Loudest Whisper—was chosen by The Moth to be the companion to a story told by Rev. Al Sharpton’s for Black History Month 2020, and was downloaded over 1 million times and in 49 different countries as of February 2021. He is currently working on his debut book - a painfully honest memoir removing the curtain of race to reveal hard truths about how he lost his humanity and convinced himself it was no big deal until he became a dad. After finding his own voice, he founded Unreeling Storytelling—a Brooklyn-based organization providing a platform for people of color, women, and others who have been pushed to the margins of our culture.
