As many of you know, I’ve branched out from the Big Words Blog Site into YouTube where I now have four channels. My original channel is Big Discussions76 where I now discuss general topics. I’ve had several guests visit my channels in 2020. One of my recent guests on Big Discussions76 is a friend and a brother from Southeastern Michigan, Rich Brown. Rich and I met in the Detroit area when I was in graduate school at the University of Michigan and have been friends ever since. Befriending Rich was actually one of the bests parts of my stay in Michigan. With similar backgrounds and experiences, we’ve always been kindred spirits. In this interview we discussed our backgrounds and the challenges of being Generation-Xers from the inner cities of Buffalo and Detroit, in Western New York and Southeastern Michigan. For those not from either area, Western New York and Southeastern Michigan are very, very similar. Because I was catering to the ‘low attention span people’, I split our interview into three parts which are below. Thank you for watching and if anything in our discussion resonates with you, please like, share and subscribe to my channel.
