The Chief Advancement Officer of Northwest Assistance Ministries, Brian Carr, visited to discuss their great work in helping people in the Houston Metro area in their times of need. He proves human politics is always the one that helps.
NAM’s Brian Carr on feeding the poor & politics
I normally get my newsletter out before the show to give our listeners, watchers, and followers a heads-up about the upcoming Politics Done Right program on KPFT 90.1 FM Houston. Last night, however, we had a 6+ hour Pacifica National Board meeting which I had to attend to discuss important issues regarding our organization.
Above that, it was a full day with the internet version of PDR and two interviews to be aired next week. I was officially spent. I woke up after three hours of sleep and started preparing for the KPFT program. I knew I could not get it all written and somewhat edited for release (as my own copyeditor, I am trying to be a bit more careful). I was ready to do it all from the head.
Ultimately, I am glad I did not finish preparing the show. When my guest from Northwest Assistance Ministries came into the studio and started talking, I knew I would change the program to center more on his organization, his politics, and much more.
Brian L. Carr is the Chief Advancement Officer of Northwest Assistance Ministries. We discussed his organization giving a hand up to those in need in our vast Houston Metropolitan area. We also got into some politics.
Brian Carr is very conservative, and I am very progressive. Yet we had so much in common I wanted to air our genuine conversation with the expectation that it would be a catalyst for those always at each other’s throats to just pause and just be human. I enjoyed our conversation pre, during, and post the program.
