Myq Kaplan, Comedian

Episode #31

May 24, 2021

It’s that perspective of the comedian to find the joke from experiences that are the most mundane to the most tragic that represents the simple paradoxical Truth of life. And of death. The comedian knows this. They share of themselves. They are vulnerable and reveal insecurities and short comings. They use self deprecating humor and joke about themselves because we value authenticity. We value people keeping it real.Myq Kaplan thinks he’s a funny guy (and so do I), and because he keeps it one hundred and approaches his work in a way that he makes a lot of CASH , he’s one of those Soul Force Ones.

Breaking the Bank for Liberation” might suggest a revolutionary approach to work that breaks away from the traditional ways of banking to advance liberation. Sam Cooke sang, "Change is Gonna Come” but we’ve been waiting for a long time for someone to break change.

Scientific research and the spiritual search. They have more in common than just the fact that they rhyme. They're both rooted in questions and an exploration of the Truth. Ravi know science and the spiritual. People often make the mistake of believing one has to choose between the two. Like most things, in many ways, they're one and the same.

Lilian Rambus, Restaurateur

Episode #28

April 26, 2021

I'm pretty certain there's more than simply cooking that's happening in the Simply Soulful Cafe kitchen. Lilian's pouring in love, and mixing in a whole lot of soul into that fried chicken batter. Perhaps cooking with soul is a little like cooking with salt, when added to dishes it it helps accentuate the flavors. Like the food at Lilian's soul food restaurant, this episode is packed with soul and flavor. It's tender with a perfect blend of spice, and finger looking good, too.

Marlan’s cut from the same cloth as Mr. Tommie LIndsey, who we spoke to on episode #7. And as it turns out Marlan cuts cloth, too. Marlan is a fashion designer. He recently opened up the MSJX suit parlor in Union City where clients can come get custom made suits and other attire.

Iman means faith in the metaphysical aspects of Islam.

Dr. Sharpton breaks down the science much like like our gut breaks down the food we consume. He tells us about how the brain and the gut are interconnected, and this leads us to consider how Trusting our Gut is similar to Trusting God?
