Alex Reads: Healing Is the Only Option
Play • 50 min

Today, I’m in conversation with Alex Reads, host of the award-winning podcast Mostly Lit and of his own and new show, What Matters. In all of his work, Alex demonstrates his capacity for a deep and searching self-reflection, that most vital of exercises in living a good and fulsome life. What I perhaps love most about Alex is his ability to help us in holding up a mirror to ourselves, to understand better who we are, what we want and where we’re going. In a searching and probing conversation, we discuss whether (and how) we exist outside of our Blackness, the meaning of life and the vital and ongoing healing work necessary to ensure our happiness. 


Alex Reads is the podcaster, writer and content creator behind What Matters and Mostly Lit.
