Previewing ‘King Richard’ and The Adaptations Made By the Williams Sisters

On my most recent podcast, sportswriter Cecil Harris discussed with me his interactions with Richard Williams, the father of Venus and Serena. We talked ahead of the release of ‘King Richard ‘, starring Will Smith, about Cecil’s up-close interactions with the real life Williams family.

Cecil also gave us a look at the 76 page plan Richard Williams made to woo coaches and bring his girls up to be tennis superstars. We also discussed how adaptations made by the Williams Sisters were led by ‘King Richard’. Is it possible one man inspired generations of women by just hearing the term The Williams Sisters ? Click the interview link below to find out Cecil’s answer to that one !

The conversation also covered Colin Kaepernick’s Netflix Series , ‘Colin in Black And White’.

#FreeBritney Is the Adaptation Story of 2021

The freedom of Britney Spears is by far the biggest story of adapting in 2021. For starters, the work of the #FreeBritney movement has truly made a difference in the 39 year old pop star’s life. This also could inspire us to breakthrough in our own lives.

The breaking of Britney Spears conservatorship brought me to ask this on Adapting With Alex Garrett, ‘Can we rid ourselves of the mental and metaphorical conservatorships?’ Our head can be quite the place if we let it. Does our mind own us? Heck no ! Yet, we sure let it bother and own us as if it has a conservatorship over us, am I right?

When I say metaphorical, I am saying someone or something external also has a hold on us as if the situation owning us! Perhaps, the adapting to freedom by Britney Spears can inspire us to break free from the metaphorical conservatorship some of us might be going through daily! A reminder, God can break us through the metaphorical conservatorships we go through as well by faith!

Alex Garrett Podcasting Loves LA!

It may be becoming an old adage to just buy that plane ticket , but it’s so true!

Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d have the guts to take time for myself and yes a significant other and decided she and I should get the plane ticket to…Los Angeles ! Yet we did!

Adaptability in Los Angeles was not bad , really as my girlfriend was in a power wheelchair and I’d say 90% of the trip was accessible !

I described our experience on my podcast (https://www.spreaker.com/episode/46203063) and my YOUTUBE under the beautiful Palm Trees of LA! https://youtu.be/BuUm79EW97M

Alex Garrett Podcasting Covers Census 2020

On an earlier edition of Alex Garrett Podcasting, Alex talked about how the 2020 US Census completely eroded the idea that this country isn’t the land of opportunity for everyone .

The fact is the Census has shown that our beautiful country known as America truly is diversifying, just ask CNN (see below)!

When you hear professors like Chanelle Wilson say America is only for white people (https://redstate.com/alexparker/2021/08/13/professor-insists-u-s-is-only-for-white-people-talks-redemption-when-there-is-no-america-n426300?utm_source=rsmorningbriefing&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl&bcid=5de854bbc553d249a7935e4212809c6f) Alex Garrett podcasting notes how the 2020 Census totally debunks the theory!

This podcast also discusses how the 2020 Census blows up the critical race theory arguments discussed in classrooms across the country!

I Won’t Make It In Media Because…

…Because I want to bridge the gap with this plaftorm!

This is the exact title of my latest Podcast .

I dedicated some time to discuss this idea of bridging the gap. I believe it is a must here in 2021, but it won’t go viral to say the gap and divide seen in Washington and America must be narrowed.

Yes, everyone talks about it. The term ‘bridging the gap’ is getting worn out and quite frankly over-used and politicized. Yet, the talkers aren’t always highlighting the DOERS that work to bridge gaps in today’s society. It is frustrating when you think about it. Why would the talkers not be DOING? Because if one solution was found, there would be an erosion of profits first and foremost.

There is no doubt this gap keeps existing without any bridging because division makes money, right? Maintaining the division profits so many different sectors of society! News networks profit off continually highlighting the divide while claiming to want to bridge the divide! To do that, you’d actually have to invite those making waves in their community on to various shows. 90% of the time during the week, talking heads talk with other talking heads and the feel good ‘in the community’ segments air on a Sunday when no one really is watching. LET’S STOP BURYING THE BRIDGE GAPPING LEDE!

Can legislation be a bridge-gapper? I would love to hope our tax dollars go to finding solutions, but gridlock STILL plainly exists in Washington, Albany and the Mayor of New York’s office. That’s not by accident. Our elected leaders answer to lobbyists, who fund them. If they actually came together agreeing AGAINST their interests, the lobbyists would turn on them and the donations would stop. I would say, let’s forego focus on the donors and focus on the issues to bridge our divides, but that’s why I wouldn’t make it in politics either. I don’t ever feel meant to be tied down to outside interests in this life!

If this platform, Adapting With Alex Garrett, can’t make it in the media world or politics, that is fine by me! I’d rather welcome those who have solutions and fixers. I want to direct you to places in NYC specifically like the Downtown Alliance (https://downtownny.com/); NY Hospitality Alliance (https://www.thenycalliance.org/) and Upper West Side Together (https://www.facebook.com/groups/3199698486785596/). Find out the organizations doing good in your neck of the woods and let me know of them at alex@alexgnyc.com!

I implore you to utilize your platform to highlight the doers and the bridge-gappers, not the talking heads!
