John Amaechi OBE: Everyday Jedi
56 min

John Amaechi OBE is a respected organisational psychologist, best-selling New York Times author and CEO of Amaechi Performance Systems a consultancy that partners with organisations to help leaders move from being transactional to transformational — he’s also an openly gay Black man. Praise be! Today, we talk about his love of libraries, why the LGBTQ community isn’t really a community after all, the attendant anger that comes with any awakening, his take on the Golden Rule, why it's a good thing for Black people to achieve success within The System and the moment he realised he could be a Jedi. 

----

“The Golden Rule is actually the Narcissist’s Charter. I never treat people how I want to be treated because I want to be left alone with wine. The best charter is the one where we treat people the way they need to be treated.”

"Being in the system is powerful because it shows that there are pathways for being ordinary and successful — and the narrative for Black people is if you’re not exceptional, you don’t stand a chance of being ordinary."

But I'm A Cheerleader w/ Jamie Babbit - Ep. 160
This episode is a Dyke dream come true because we get to spend an hour talking to DYKON Jamie Babbit about one of the most iconic gay films of all time just before it's big re-release! But I'm A Cheerleader is truly the gift that keeps on giving, and we get to hear from Jamie how it all came together, what it's like to look back on it, and what has changed since its 1999 release. We ask all our burning questions about Natasha Lyonne and Clea Duvall, and the answers do not disappoint. Look our for the director's cut this December 8 with added scenes and all sorts of fun extras. Plus, we tease our take on Happiest Season, Melody reveals she's a marketing mastermind, and Carolyn officially becomes a homeowner/homo-owner. Be sure to keep an eye out on our Patreon this week for the comprehensive Happiest Season review with past guest Erica Rose. And finally, we wrap it up with a question from a sexually frustrated listener. -Get extra content, Ad Free episodes, support the pod, and get to know other listeners by joining our Patreon community.
