Episode 89 – Black Lives Matter

Later than we’d have liked, we answer a question that is very timely and important:

How do I talk about Black Lives Matter and the protests and all that with my team? I know we’re supposed to leave religion and politics at home, but it feels like I should address this. Should I?

If you have questions about this, or feedback about our handling of this conversation, we definitely want to hear from you… email jer@, dawn@, or questions@ leadingquestionspodcast.com
