A Raw Discussion on Drug Addiction, Family, Faith, and Conservatism

I was fortunate enough to be joined by economist and academic, @GlennLoury. He is known as a leading Black conservative social critic, particularly on race issues. In this episode, we discussed his difficult upbringing, success, drug addiction, faith, lessons for young black men, complicated lives, and much more. It was a deep conversation I really enjoyed. Enjoy!

Glenn C. Loury, a prominent social critic, is the Merton P. Stoltz Professor of the Social Sciences and professor of economics at Brown University, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He lives in Providence, Rhode Island. He is the author of, “LATE ADMISSIONS: Confessions of a Black Conservative.”
