Episode 61: Shut The Freak Up, with Joseph McClendon III

At 17, Joseph was beaten to within an inch of his life by 3 men because of the colour of his skin. 

The shame and self-loathing led to Joseph being homeless as a teenager, until a man gave him a book that changed his life. 

Joseph’s now a Doctor of Neuropsychology, a lecturer, a performance coach, and a father. Listen as Joseph explains why we all need to Shut The Freak Up.
