In the first part of this episode, I pick up where I left off on police and justice reform to speak briefly about actions taken by the legislative and executive branches of government. In the second, I am joined by Antonio Serrano, a longtime Wyoming advocate, to discuss issues related to the call for racial equality and justice in Wyoming and beyond.
In this episode, I work through the concept of privilege and what it means for me as a white, male, heterosexual candidate. With the recent shooting of Ahmaud Arbery as a starting point, I try to look at how privilege continues to create a less just and equal world and what I hope I can do as a public servant to counter it.
Debuting this podcast, I take some time with my longtime friend, Chris Combs, to discuss how growing up in Wyoming influenced us as adults and forged our identities. Topics include: rural communities; public lands and open space; food production and distribution; boom and bust economies; and finally, freedom of speech and religion.
Hope you enjoy this first dive into the world of podcasting.
