6/11/2020
This interview was first recorded in February 2020. The world was a very different place then from the one we face in June 2020, at the time of its release.

Because none of that had happened yet, it wasn't directly addressed in this conversation. Solving #MeToo stands with the Black Lives Matter protesters. Not...

Jennie is now a writer, speaker and singer whose message encourages us all to strive for empathy, connection and self-compassion.
