Had the pleasure of stopping by WPFW last night an participating in a “Soul Conversation” …and to be honest, it turned out to be one of my favorite interviews in a long time. I’m sure if there was no time limit, we would probably STILL be conversing now. You can listen to it in full HERE …or by pressing ‘play’ below.
