Season 3, Episode 1: Unjudged

To kickoff season three, we’re saying the words left unsaid about the culture of shame and judgement that is bred by social media. Over the past 90 days we’ve been told to cancel Kanye West, Childish Gambino, Fabolous, R. Kelly, Bill Cosby, Starbucks, Waffle House, and the list goes on and on. But, what’s with this culture of disposability and  cancellation? Why are we expected not to show each other mercy for our public blunders? And, what happens when someone’s bad behavior crosses out boundaries in a way that is not worthy of our continuing to engage with them. Take this journey through shaking shame and judgment with us, while setting healthy boundaries and articulating reconciliation. It’s time to get unjudged.

Inspirational Quotes

“Mercy is like a mirror. I think mercy is what you give to others with the hope that it will come back to you. It’s what you give to people who don’t deserve it. It’s what you give to people who haven’t asked for it. It’s what you give and it will come back.” -Bryan Stevenson

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” -Theodore Roosevelt
