ON WITH THE SHOW
Welcome to this week's podcast episode. My guest is a close family friend, Chris Williams. He is making his second appearance on the show at a time when our world is going through what I hope is a positive change.
Chris, and I talk about how to help our kids talk about diversity. We parents need to have an open and safe dialog with our kids.
We do talk about grilling and please come back to episode 162 as I will give you an update on Chris as a grilling master.
When Chris was in the military he had what was called a "Battle Buddy." We all need one or maybe a few of these people in our lives.
I did this on purpose but Chris at the time of the recording was waiting to hear if he and his staff had the Coronavirus. They did not.
I wanted to know how his wife Jen, who is white, has helped support him and their two boys when it comes to diversity.
