PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — Good evening everybody. We once again get serious on The People’s Podcast. And you already know why.
For the last 2 months, it’s been an endless parade of men being outed as being the literal worst in all forms of business, industry, education, politics, you name it. Whether it’s News (Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, John Hockenberry, All of Fox News), Music (Russell Simmons, R. Kelly), Comedy (Louis CK, Bill Cosby), Politics (Roy Moore, Donald Trump, Al Franken), Sports (Greg Zaun). From local to national, it’s essentially everywhere.
Well, coming out of Thanksgiving and having time to think about things, it was time for another serious commentary. This time, talking about how men in this country (and around the world) really need to get our collective shit together. And in the process, I decided to bring back parts of what Lara Witt had to say during Episode 17 of the show back in Sept. 2006. Her interview — the most downloaded show in JSC History — provided a blueprint for how we can get right plus a harrowing story of how she combated a sexual assault in her native Switzerland.
It gets real this week. You’ve been warned.
