Every week, Luvvie interviews guests like Bozoma Saint John, Gabrielle Union, Glennon Doyle, Donna Brazile, Sarah Jakes Roberts, Tarana Burke and Elsa Majimbo – people who are committed to disrupting what is unjust for the greater good. People who take up the call of the late, great John Lewis, who charged us to “Get in good trouble, necessary trouble.”

The conversations and stories you’ll hear on the Professional Troublemaker podcast will loan you courage to fight imposter syndrome, live more audaciously and cause good trouble.

Episode 27

Loan Others Courage (with KevOnStage)

This conversation with KevOnStage AKA Kevin Fredericks was a vulnerable and hilarious conversation that needed to be shared on the podcast. Originally recorded as part of the Professional Troublemaker book tour in March 2021, this convo has us getting real about each of our journeys, how we have each created opportunities for ourselves and some of the growing pains that follow.

Episode 26

Write Your Dreams Down

Write the vision. Make it plain.

Dreams actualized don’t just “happen.” It takes intention, specificity, and hard work! It comes with intention and looking at where we’ve been and where we want to go next.

As we embark on a new year, I share in this episode why I don’t write resolutions and what I do instead as I share my transformative New Year ritual.
