It's Personal with Dr. J

Honest Conversations with Dr. Julianne Malveaux

This podcast riffs off the feminist slogan, “the personal is political”. We used to say that if one person told the story it was personal, but when a dozen people had the same story, it’s political. Even the most political or policy conversations, then, has personal roots, or a foundation in personal beliefs. Why do you do what you do? Why do you spend your time the way you do? Why do you make a difference? Believe me, it’s personal.
