In this episode of the Align Podcast, I am joined by Harry Grammer, who is by far one of the most important figures I have had on the podcast and one of the most important conversations I have ever shared.
Harry discusses the primary roots of oppression, injustice, and racism that exists in the United States. There are a lot of layers. It’s not as simple as putting one blanket statement on a cardboard box and going out and yelling about it. There is a deep injustice happening among our fellow human beings and it is our duty to uncover it.
Harry is an activist, scholar, and poet and founder of New Earth, an organization playing an integral part in reforming the juvenile justice nationwide system. In 2017, Harry was honored as a CNN Hero and in 2018 selected as an inaugural Obama Foundation Fellow.
Harry is an invaluable character with invaluable information to share. I hope my conversation with Harry will help you begin to peel back the layers.

Let's talk about Black Lives Matter.
Some people believe protesting and posting on social media is the most effective way to bring about change in our country, although I believe the most effective way is to become better educated on exactly what is happening, as well as have open dialog and honest conversations to help better understand.
In this episode of the Align Podcast, I'm joined by Robert Fergusson who shares his experience growing up as an African American with the racism and injustice in our country. He also shares his approach to supporting the movement and his best advice for how we can make an actual change.
I cannot thank Robert enough for providing me with a new perspective on the movement. I hope you enjoy the conversation and find it as beneficial as much as I did.
In this episode of the Align Podcast, I chat with fitness influencer, Nimai Delgado, who shares his interesting journey through life from being an American raised in a Hindu community to becoming one of the most prominent vegan bodybuilders in the industry.
We begin our conversation discussing the foundations of Hinduism and Niami’s view on God. Niami explains what it was like growing up in Southern America as a Hindu and how he made a personal shift from, “sharing less to fit in more” to embracing his full self. We also dive into his journey from being a vegetarian, to actively deciding to never eat animal products again. Niami explains common mistakes vegan’s make, as well as his best advice for thriving on a plant-based diet.
After listening, you will not only be left with greater knowledge on a vegan diet, but you will also be left with a new perspective on embracing your difference in a world where you feel pressure to follow the norm.
