John Lustrea-episode 232
My son John Lustrea joins me again for what we thought was to be a movie podcast. It turned out that my personal historian and 27-year-old son had a lot to say about what is happening in our world today. Most often my guests are middle-aged and I thought it was important to continue this conversation and see through the eyes of someone younger, someone who will be part of the ongoing change in our country and the world.
I also want to give you a heads up to watch the movie Just Mercy, if you haven’t already. Next week’s podcast will be a discussion of that wonderful movie, which is based on the book of the same title by Bryan Stevenson.
