"I believe that words are strong, that they can overwhelm what we fear when fear seems more awful than life is good.”
- Andrew Solomon
Everyone in this world is qualified to listen.
Everyone in this world is qualified to love.
Everyone in this world is qualified to always learn more and be part of humanity.
This podcast is a reminder on the power of real conversation, with real humans, not for media soundbites. We are all much more similar than we are different and we'll never achieve unity through animosity.
All listeners are welcome. Differing opinions are encouraged. Close mindedness is not.
My name is Kamran Rosen. From an early age I've been curious, which means many of my relationships started by me asking questions. It's how I've always learned.
I feel really fortunate for all the love I've received in my life. I had all four of my grandparents until I was 21, which was two Iranians living in France, a Korean woman raised in Hawaii, and a Jewish grandpa from New York. Growing up having people you love look so different can make you wonder why we find it so easy to look at the divisions between us, rather than celebrate that we're all in this together.
Put those two together and I guess you get a guy who's just tired of seeing media handle everything with a lens designed to shock and infuriate. I know there's many legitimate reasons to be angry, and there's people who are at more fault than others, but I still think we don't heal until we learn from and about each other.
Until we get there you can find me here —asking one question at a time.
