Edwin Mayah

Inspired by the contrasting perspectives on the George Floyd incident, Edwin Joseph Maya (EJ), embarked on a mission to create the “Conversation Outspoken Opinionated” podcast. This journey is fueled by his natural curiosity and passion for bridging the gaps in understanding, especially among marginalized communities. In this episode, we kick things off with a deep dive into the origins and mission of the podcast, while also touching on the significant resignation of Professor Melinda Gay, Harvard University’s first Black president. Her departure has profound implications for women of color in academia, emphasizing the necessity of open dialogue and representation in these spaces.

As we navigate the complex terrain of discussing controversial topics, you’ll hear about the challenges of being an “inequity disruptor.” We recount a particularly heated episode about reparations, highlighting how respect and understanding are essential when debating passionate and often polarizing issues. You’ll gain insight into the logistics of marketing and distributing the podcast, including our transition to the Alive Podcast Network, which has significantly broadened Edwin’s reach and impacted his approach to social media strategy. His aim is to foster meaningful conversations while maintaining a calm and respectful environment, even when tackling the most contentious subjects.

This episode also shines a light on the financial struggles faced by single dads and college graduates, as well as the unique dynamics between athletes and their agents. Edwin underscores the importance of discussing finances and career choices openly, and you’ll get a peek into his personal interests such as travel, wine festivals, and concerts, which play a crucial role in his life and work. Influenced by iconic shows like “The View” and figures like Oprah Winfrey, his research process is dedicated to creating engaging and insightful content. Don’t miss out on hearing about his favorite episodes on self-care and mental health, a topic that holds tremendous importance for personal well-being and identity, especially for parents. Tune in to discover where you can find his content and join him on this rewarding journey.
