Welcome to The BRC & Friends Podcast where you will get to know activists, artists, academics, and adventurers who are committed to making the world a better place.
In Episode 50 you get to meet the other two co-hosts of the show: Jorge Bautista (he/him) and Micky Scottbey Jones (she/her). Jorge is a pastor at a United Church of Christ congregation in San Mateo, California. Micky is a coach and justice doula, currently based in Nashville, Tennessee and she sees her work as a doula being translated to other avenues of life — where she accompanies people who are birthing something into the world.
Bruce chats with his co-hosts to get to know them a bit better, starting with figuring out how he met both of them. Did he meet Micky at a conference and walk up to her after realizing they were the only two people of color in the room? He can’t remember, but this sounds quite realistic. Bruce and Jorge chat about how they met at a protest event in support of migrants crossing the border to the US, and about being handcuffed together in a police vehicle.
You can expect chats about childhood memories evoked by scents (peach turnovers, microwaved popcorn) and why our hosts don’t fully understand why the NFL, horror movies, and beer are as widely liked as they are.
