Contributor Matt Ruby speaks with Lubaina Choudhury, a natural healing expert and host of the new podcast, Empower and Awaken. J. McVay is also joined by Jacqueline Soller to discuss the recently released movie, Solo: A Star Wars Story, directed by Ron Howard and starring Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, and Donald Glover. Along the way, we’ll also hear from Radio Dispatch’s John Knefel with his thoughts on the Trump administration’s decision to rescind Temporary Protected Status (TPS) which will uproot hundreds of thousands of immigrants who came to the U.S. legally after fleeing conflict and natural disasters in their home countries; we’ll hear from a man named Carlos about his experience maintaining a long distance relationship; and we’ll take an exclusive early listen to a performance by Brooklyn band, NADINE, from an episode of BTR Live Studio set to be released next week.
Music composed by and show edited by Hansdale Hsu.
