A Disclaimer About The Year Of The Opposite Interviews
The 3 Goals Of the Year of The Opposite Newsletter & Podcast. Disclaimer: Views and Opinions Don't Necessarily Reflect Those Of The Host.
The Year of The Opposite Newsletter and Podcast is centered around three primary goals:
Share the outcomes of my Year of The Opposite journey, detailing the process and the lessons learned.
Feature inspiring and uplifting stories that showcase Humans Being Awesome.
Present engaging video and audio podcast interviews with fascinating individuals discussing topics that will pique your interest.
You may wonder how uplifting weekly stories and video interviews relate to living a Year of The Opposite. The truth is, my journey did not end after just one year—I'm now in the second year and embracing new challenges.
This year, my focus is on creating and contributing positively to the world. One way I'm doing this is by sharing heartening stories that highlight positivity. Another is by conducting video and audio interviews with a diverse range of people and sharing their insights with a broader audience. Both of these endeavors are new to me, marking fresh challenges in my second year of living the opposite.
As I prepare to interview people from all walks of life, I want to make one thing absolutely clear. It's a point that should go without saying but seems to be frequently misunderstood:
Interviewing someone does not equate to an endorsement of their views, actions, or words. It does not imply my support or agreement with everything they've said or done. While I hope to have guests whose views align with mine, I also aim to feature those whose perspectives diverge from my own.
I firmly believe that a healthy society is one in which we can respectfully disagree and still engage in conversation.
Furthermore, I acknowledge that I may occasionally make incorrect, imprecise, or misleading statements on the show. My goal is to minimize these errors and promptly correct and update the record to clarify any inaccuracies. I invite you to assist me in this process. Additionally, please understand that these conversations occur at a specific point in time, and my opinions may evolve over time or differ from those expressed in the show.
I aspire to remain humble and open-minded, willing to update and change my views when confronted with new and better information. After all, that's what learning is all about.
Now that we've addressed that, I'm thrilled to introduce the newsletter and video podcast that will be released tomorrow.
In this week's publication, I'll be sharing a video interview that delves into the harrowing story of Claude McCollum's wrongful conviction for the 2005 rape and murder of an LCC professor. This gripping account involves a Lansing man who was unjustly imprisoned, an attorney who worked tirelessly to exonerate him, an assistant prosecuting attorney who may have concealed evidence from the defense, and a serial killer who terrorized Lansing and confessed to six murders.
Thank you for subscribing to the newsletter, and I hope you have a fantastic weekend.
