The Remedy Podcast

WEBB Squared & Afro Future Productions

“The Revolution Begins with Dialogue” Inspired by conversational podcasts on deep meaningful subjects and ideas, the WEBB Squared "Wealth Through Entrepreneurship for Black Businesses" staff team - Stephanie Terry, Rinnie Orr, and Mashallah Salaam - have created a new "Conscious Conversations" podcast to discuss race, race amity, racial equity, unity, abundance, interdependence, relational power, and more. We have deep, authentic conversations about who we are as white people, as black people, and as human beings living in this world that's so divided. Whereas we might not have the answers, we do believe that the remedy lies in the conversation and the coming together as friends and in community to create programs that address these issues. We believe "the remedy" to the great divide is in the conversation and the process. It’s not a destination. We'd love you to join us in the dialogue and invite you to support the podcast through a Patreon membership. As a Patreon - you’ll have an opportunity to join us in conversation - laugh with us, cry with us, and do the work with us to make this world a more equitable and abundant place for all.
