Richard Lui

April 9, 2021

In This Episode:

Clay is joined by journalist, businessman, and author Richard Lui to discuss the state of the nation in 2021 and how we can begin to come together as one people.  Is apolitical selfishness or making the effort to reach out and sit down to talk with those who disagree with us the answer?  It’s a difficult question, but with small steps, intention and good will, we might be able to take the advice of Richard and find the way forward for us, our communities, and our country– no matter which side of the aisle we’re on.
