WAIW | Don’t Listen to Me Right Now

Image contains a photo of a bearded man with long hair looking directly at the camera.

Although it seems hard to believe, this week’s Where Am I Wednesday episode is the 200th one that I’ve released. Back when I shot the first one in the woods on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada, I can’t say I expected I would release anything near 200. Of course, I also didn’t expect the world to be in the numerous terrible situations that it’s in right now, and that’s why I don’t actually want you to watch the video I shot for this week.

As a white male, I’m not the sort of person you should be listening to right now. So, I’m hoping that you’ll take this time to consume content created by or meant to directly support Black people. I know I’ve posted various resources before, but I thought I would take today to suggest more for those who might be interested.

With that in mind, please check out the following:
