Getting Started on Your Next Project (0:00:00) Have you ever had an idea worth a million bucks? Unfortunately, many of our ideas never leave the brainstorming phase because life gets in the way of us getting started. Suttida Yang gives us a push to get over the first hill on our journey to making our ideas a reality.  The Retail Apocalypse (0:17:02) The "retail apocalypse" has been grabbing headlines with over 1,200 individual stores closing so far in 2020, including big-name clothing retailers like Macy's and Express. But maybe that's not a bad thing, Reports Forbes. Brandon Roe joins us to share how retailers are catching up with our ever-evolving shopping trends.  Black Fatigue (0:54:51) While Black Lives Matter may have faded from your social media feed, racism has not faded from our institutions. For non-black people, things like this are out of sight, out of mind. But for BIPOC, racism is a daily reality. Author Mary-Frances Winters shares the emotional effects of racism on BIPOC, as well as her perspective on how to better understand and combat it.  Dreaming Again (1:11:14) When we were kids, we dreamed freely. As adults, our dreams often hit the back burner as we are forced to focus on more pressing, practical matters. Day-to-day responsibilities often seem easier and more manageable than reaching for those dreams that sit in the back of our minds. Ganel-Lyn Condie offers advice on how to dream again and pursue our aspirations.  Weekend Review (1:31:13) Lisa and Richie share movies, books, podcasts and recipes to enjoy this weekend.
