Episode 193: Van Jones – The Messy Truth

Van Jones is a CNN political contributor, NY Times best-selling author & worked in the White House as an advisor to President Obama. He’s known for being the voice of reason for both red & blue states during the 2016 election.

He’s a social entrepreneur, a Yale-educated attorney & has been deemed one of the most influential people in the world according to TIME Magazine.

In this episode, we revisit Amy Jo and Van’s conversation in which Van talks about why he believes America is so divided & what we can do to begin bridging the divide. Van has a strong ability to serve as a bridge for opposing opinions. We need a lot more of that in this world. He describes what it was like leaving the White House and what he did immediately following. Van also shares the unique circumstances that led him to meeting Prince (the artist) & becoming very close friends.
