Adam Kullberg is the Education Program Manager at Pop Culture Classroom. He joined the team in 2015, after serving as an outreach teacher and volunteer for the organization throughout 2014. Before that, he earned his MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Arizona and MA in English Literature from the University of North Texas. Since joining PCC, he has helped develop PCC’s outreach programming, pop culture-based workshops, and curricula, including a range of educational programs at Denver Pop Culture Con offered each year to teachers and students of all ages. In his free time, he enjoys playing lacrosse and binging corny action movies.

The need for innovative literacy education in Colorado inspired Pop Culture Classroom and its education programs. As teachers, artists, writers, parents, and all around pop culture activists, each of us has personal experience with the transformational power of comics and other pop culture media. We believe that literacy, creativity and creative thinking are essential abilities for our children as they prepare to navigate both the successes and challenges of life.

Pop Culture Classroom was founded in 2010 as Comic Book Classroom, a Colorado charitable organization focused on enhancing and improving student’s learning experience through the use of comic book media. At the same time, the founders of Comic Book Classroom also created the Denver Comic Con event.

The STC curriculum has been offered by schools, educators, libraries, and community organizations all across Colorado and beyond. The curriculum has expanded to include a comprehensive collection of reading materials, instructional videos, interactive activities and arts-based handouts designed to help students investigate storytelling, build art and literacy skills, and eventually create their very own comics. Completed entries are then published in a class collection.

On this episode of the podcast Joe invites long-time friend Adam Kullberg to the podcast to discuss his work with Pop Culture Classroom. Joe & Adam discuss the various mediums used to drive life lessons home for students, how we can continue to evolve our way of learning, and what's on the horizon in a post-COVID world.

On January 15, 2017 CEO Michael Odiari founded Check after he was pulled over during a traffic stop and quickly found himself looking down the barrel of a policeman’s gun. As a person of color, he knew that this would likely not be his only negative interaction with the police and that there was a whole community of people with similar experiences.

From that incident on he has set out to bridge the communication gap between police and motorists. The Check App utilizes video calling technology to replace the initial interactions during a traffic stop. Instead of approaching a vehicle to obtain a motorist's information, leaving the officer vulnerable on the side of the road, police will be able to see Driver Licenses, Registration, and Insurance of the motorists.

Motorists will be able to see vital information about the officer who is pulling them over. These initial interactions over video can help both parties communicate better and even help save the lives of both the officer and the motorist. 

Michael & Zachary from Check stop by the podcast to discuss the creation of their app, how it's progressing so far, and how they envision this app helping all people moving forward. To get more information about the app, or to sign up, CLICK HERE

Shani Mahiri King is a law professor at the University of Florida, where he is director of the Center on Children and Families and an Associate Director of the Center on Race and Race Relations. King received a B.A. from Brown University, a J.D. from Harvard Law School, and a Mst. in International Human Rights Law from Oxford University, and he is an active writer and scholar in the area of children’s rights and family law. King is the father of a nine-year-old daughter and a six-year-old son, for whom he wrote this book, as well as the picture book Have I Ever Told You? (2019).  

About the Book:

Shani King on Why He Wrote This Book: “I wrote this book for my children and for all children who need an inspirational voice grounded in their own history. Think of any field of endeavor and Black innovators have made vital contributions. The Black women and men introduced in this book are but a small handful of those innovators. They were all kids once. They all overcame obstacles because they all believed in themselves. My goal is for all kids to see themselves in these pages. And, I hope this book contributes to the understanding that all kids, and all people, are central to the American narrative and the human experience.”

Shani came on the podcast to discuss why representation matters, why he wrote his latest book "Have I Ever Told You Black Lives Matter?", and what Black History Month means to him. It's a fantastic conversation I hope you'll enjoy it. And be sure to go pick up a copy of his book today!

In this episode of the podcast Joe welcomes back author, theologian, and good friend Brian McLaren back to the podcast to discuss Brian's latest book "Faith After Doubt".

Steve Dypiangco is an American filmmaker. He was a Producer of Marketing and Distribution for Luke Matheny's Oscar-Winning short film, God of Love

Dypiangco's most recent film (and also web series), which he co-wrote and co-directed with Patrick Epino, is Awesome Asian Bad Guys, which stars a number of Asian American actors who played villains in 1980-1990s action movies, such as Al LeongYuji Okumoto and George Cheung

A digital media exec turned entrepreneur, Stephen is the co-founder of Dadventures (hellodadventures.com), an early stage startup helping parents find fun things to do with their kids.

Dadventures was born out of a series of conversations between our Co-Founders, Steve and Devon, around the struggles and pitfalls of being a dad, which led to discussing Steve’s fateful trip to Disneyland. Focused on giving his daughters the best Disneyland experience possible, Steve meticulously researched every ride and polled his kids on which ones they were the most interested in. He even measured their heights just to make sure they’d be able to ride.

The result was an amazing family experience – riding 8 rides in less than 2 hours! Steve’s daughters were thrilled, and Steve was happy to have given his kids a great experience. But no one was happier than Steve’s wife, who got to enjoy a full day of parental success without having to do any of the planning. Dadventures helps parents figure out what to do and the easiest ways to do it, so parents can focus on being present with their kids.

Steve and I discussed the origins of Dadventures, how he has evolved the company in the midst of Covid-19, and what we can look forward to in 2021 and beyond. We also discuss his film career and how representation on screen matters for our children. If we want to make a more inclusive world we need to ensure everyone is represented on screen. Thanks for coming on the show Steve, we cannot wait to have you back on the show!

Jarrett J. Krosoczka is the New York Times-bestselling author/illustrator behind more than forty books for young readers, including his wildly popular Lunch Lady graphic novels, select volumes of the Star Wars™: Jedi Academy series, and Hey, Kiddo, which was a National Book Award Finalist. Krosoczka creates books with humor, heart, and deep respect for his young readers—qualities that have made his titles perennial favorites on the bookshelves of homes, libraries, and bookstores. 
 
In addition to his work in print, Krosoczka produced, directed, and performed in the audiobook adaptation of his graphic memoir, which garnered both Audie and Odyssey Awards for excellence in audiobook production. Krosoczka has been a guest on NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross and has delivered two TED Talks, which have collectively accrued more than two million views online. Young creatives can also hear Krosoczka weekly on SiriusXM's Kids Place Live and catch his wildly popular web show on YouTube, Draw Every Day with JJK. He also acted as a consultant and appeared in live segments of Creative Galaxy on Prime Video.

Jarrett and I discussed his first forays into art, the overwhelmingly personal memoir "Hey, Kiddo", and his current YouTube series "Draw Every Day" among other topics. Jarrett realizes his work, and his words, can inspire people of all ages and seeks to use his incredible talent to make the world a better place. His focus on empowering children fits right into the core focus of The DTALKS Podcast: to make the world a more inclusive place for all! Thanks for coming on the show Jarrett, we can't wait to have you on again!

2020 has felt like an entire decade but we've finally made it to the end of the year, and since this is the last episode of the year we felt it fitting to take a look back at the year that was. 

In this 'best of' episode we take clips from the top 10 listened to episodes all year long. We appreciate the guests and conversations we had on the show, and use it to inform the content for 2021. We're entering the 5th year of the podcast and will continue to evolve the show to ensure we're providing content which helps to make a more inclusive world.

Thank you to all the wonderful guests we had this year, and thank you to the listeners who keep coming back and lending their voices to the discussion. Happy New Year!

Dr. Tiffany Woodus has over 10 years of experience in healthcare. She completed a Doctor of Medicine degree from The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in 2006. Subsequently, she completed an internship and residency in Obstetrics & Gynecology from The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW)/Parkland Health & Hospital System in 2010. During her tenure here, Dr. Woodus was awarded with such accolades as distinguished teaching awards. She is board certified by the American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology. After completing training, Dr. Woodus continued at UTSW as an Assistant Professor in Obstetrics & Gynecology where she participated on various residency & policy development committees.

Dr. Woodus is on the podcast today to discuss Woodus Obsterics & Gynecology which is committed to improving black maternal health outcomes:

"The maternal health and well-being of all mothers, particularly black and brown mothers, is under attack. The CDC defines health disparities as the preventable differences in the burden of disease, injury, violence or opportunities to achieve optimal health that are experienced by socially disadvantaged populations.

At Woodus Obstetrics & Gynecology, we recognize other POC experience disparities in maternal health outcomes, however black maternal health has been marginalized far too long. We refuse to be complicit by remaining silent. 

It’s not, 'Only “Black Mamas Matter.' 

It’s not, 'Black Mamas Matter More/Most.'

It’s, 'Black Mamas Matter, Too.'

Dr. Woodus and I discussed the importance of having a space where one can truly relax and focus on the business of giving birth. Dr. Woodus and I discussed how she wanted to create a space where Black women felt safe, secure, and understood. That her practice seeks to educate, elevate, and empower mothers is something to be celebrated. We can only hope her practice is the first of many more like it.

Martha Brockenbrough (rhymes with broken toe) is the author of two books for adults and numerous books for young readers (with several others on the way), including YA fiction and nonfiction, picture books, and a forthcoming chapter book series.

Martha is on the show today to discuss her book "Unpresidented: A Biography Of Donald Trump"

From no-holds-barred reality TV star to unlikely candidate, Donald J. Trump rose to the highest political office: President of the United States of America. 

Learn fascinating details about his personal history, including:

-Why Trump’s grandfather left Germany and immigrated to America
-Why Woodie Guthrie wrote a song criticizing Trump’s father
-How Trump’s romance with Ivana began―and ended
-When Trump first declared his interest in running for President

Richly informed by original research and illustrated throughout with photographs and documents, Unpresidented is a gripping and important read.

Martha and I discussed her research into Donald Trump's life for this book, and why she felt compelled to document his history for future generations. Coincidentally we recorded this episode on the eve of the 2020 Presidential Election. Knowing how the election ended up gives this episode a bit more hindsight perspective than we even knew when recording. I hope you'll enjoy this important discussion.

"I once interviewed a woman shot in the head by hijackers and left for dead on the tarmac. 

I raced my bike against Greg LeMond in South Africa (and beat him). I played a tennis match against the world’s top-ranked wheelchair tennis player (and lost). I channeled a 330-pound, Samoan, retired NFL nose tackle who is gay (Esera Tuaolo, for his memoir). I played softball on snowshoes in the summertime (wood chips spread across the infield). I rapped a base hit off former Twins pitcher Rick Aguilera.

I listened to a nurse tell me the story of prying a shotgun shell out of Ernest Hemingway’s hand when he was intent upon killing himself. I profiled a woman who is a Roman Catholic priest. I attended a powwow with LGBTQ Native Americans. I interviewed a mortician in the room where she embalmed my father. I interviewed a 15-year-old boy in his hospital room after he tried to stop a school shooter.

All in a few days' work, stretching back to 1981, when I began freelancing as a senior in high school, same time I got clean and sober. My work has won a couple dozen awards and been nominated for a National Magazine Award and a Pulitzer Prize (but didn't win either of those).

Along the way, I have lived in Boise, Boston, Florence, London, Paris, and St. Paul. Today I'm at home in my native Minneapolis with my wife Maria, our two children, and a golden retriever named Maya. - John Rosengren

John Rosengren is a frequent sportswriter including authoring one of Joe's favorite books "Blades of Glory: The True Story Of A Young Team Bred To Win" about High School Hockey in Minnesota (think Friday Night Lights, but with Hockey). 

John is on the show today to discuss writing Blades of Glory, his current book "A Clean Heart", and the effect sports can have on our kids.

Enjoy!

What if we're thinking about forgiveness in the wrong way?
What if there was a better way to forgive others?
What if forgiveness was an actual state of being?

Stephen Mitchell is an author who was born in Brooklyn in 1943, educated at Amherst, the Sorbonne, and Yale, and de-educated through intensive Zen practice.

He is on the show today to discuss his latest book The Way Of Forgiveness: A Story About Letting Go.

Mitchell’s retelling of the biblical story of Joseph and his brothers interweaves the narrative with brief meditations that, with their Zen surprises, expand and illuminate the main themes. The engrossing tale that he has created will capture the hearts and minds of modern readers and show them that this ancient story can still challenge, delight, and astonish. With lyrical, witty, and vivid prose, Mitchell brings fresh insight to this foundational legend of betrayal and the power of forgiveness.

In this episode of the podcast Joe is finally able to talk to another one of his icons, Rob Bell!

Rob stopped by the show today to discuss his latest book "Everything is Spiritual: Who We Are and What We're Doing Here".

Joe and Rob discuss our current political climate, our divisive society, and speculate how we could possibly be on the next iteration of humankind. 

If you want to purchase Rob's latest book CLICK HERE

In his profound and deeply personal new book, EVERYTHING IS SPIRITUAL: Who We Are and What We're Doing Here, New York Times bestselling author Rob Bell explores the endless dynamic questions and connections that have shaped his life, providing powerful insight into understanding one's purpose and place in the world.

EVERYTHING IS SPIRITUAL is a brief history of how ideas about creation, love, and connection shaped the author—and can shape every one of us. In EVERYTHING IS SPIRITUAL, Bell explores the wonder and awe that comes from embracing where and who you come from, discovering in the wounds and regrets of life an invitation lurking in there to expand, much like the universe has been doing for 13 billion years. 

EVERYTHING IS SPIRITUAL shows there is a space beyond all the parts and divisions and differences and polarization where you can see that it’s all one connected whole—and that it’s all rigged in favor of growth, expansion, and joy.

ROB BELL is the New York Times Bestselling author of ten books, including Velvet Elvis, Drops Like Stars, and Love Wins, which have been translated into 25 languages. His podcast, called RobCast, was named by iTunes Best of 2015. He's toured with Oprah, been profiled in The New Yorker, and in 2011 TIME Magazine named him one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World. He does regular shows at Largo, a comedy and music club in Los Angeles, where he lives with his wife Kristen and their three kids.

In this episode of the podcast Joe talks to ANOTHER Joe Shaw, this one based out of the United Kingdom.

These not-so-average Joes discuss leaving a legacy for our children, what kind of art we're creating, and how we can build a more inclusive world amidst the current political climate.

Joseph Shaw is an artist based in Newcastle upon Tyne. His immersive installations tackle the forced obsolescence of technology post-2000, bring to light issues of trustworthiness and distrust of objects and individuals, and question notions of causation and effect (or actions and their reactions) with a permeating dark humour. Shaw’s work has been shown in exhibitions both in the UK and internationally and he is one of the founding members of the Roundabout collective based in Munich, Germany. Shaw graduated from Newcastle University in 2015 and has since become a member of NewBridge Studios.
