Now wait a minute. First off, yes, (Bryan) is back with us after his star turn as the new face of Barry's Tow Trucks, but we have GOT to get to our guest today. We've had some heavy hitters on recently, including some high-ranking government officials (we're looking at you, Senior Advisor to President Biden on COVID Policy, Andy Slavitt, excuse me), but we may have outdone ourselves this time, and you deserve nothing less. Joining us in The Carriage House this week is none other than former mayor of San Antonio, former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under President Obama, and our VERY FIRST Presidential candidate, the host of the podcast OUR AMERICA, The Honorable Julián Castro! Secretary Castro joins us this week to help us give advice on dealing with in-laws who have been too lax during the pandemic, a boyfriend who may be sharing too much with his ex, and a young campaign worker trying to balance work and family. And we have a big announcement. Mark your calendars for Sunday, April 18th. We'll be hosting an Oscars preview show LIVE from The Carriage House! We'll have it all: predictions, music, games, prizes, and more...and, just like last month's live show, you'll have a chance for a one-on-one meeting with Ronna or (Bryan). Tickets go on sale this Friday for Patreon members, and next week for the Free Feed. Be there! This week's Carriage House Book Club on Patreon is Lydia Millet's A CHILDREN'S BIBLE. We'll be joined by acclaimed mystery author and LA TImes critic Charles Finch, who's fabulous. Our usual book club cohort, Cynthia D'Aprix Sweeney, is busy promoting her new novel GOOD COMPANY which you can pre-order now ( https://bookshop.org/shop/askronna ). Plus, Cynthia will be a guest on the Free Feed next month. Be sure to read her new book so you'll be in the know when she makes her Free Feed crossover!

"The American dream needs to be broader, more nuanced, but also fundamentally reflective of who we truly are as human beings." : A Conversation with Julián Castro

With the Bark Off: Conversations on the American Presidency

Julián Castro rose from a low-income household in his native San Antonio, Texas, to become the city’s mayor at the age of 34. He would go on to serve as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under Barack Obama, becoming President Obama’s youngest Cabinet secretary. A one-time summer intern for the Bill Clinton White House, he ran for the presidency himself in 2020. His observations on the campaign trail and as a Cabinet secretary led to his new podcast, “Our America with Julián Castro,” in which he explores the disparity in the American experience and the steps we might take toward a healthier, more just and fair America. Secretary Castro discusses what he learned in his 2020 presidential run, his new podcast “One America with Julián Castro,” and, given the challenges of inequity we face today, the state of the American Dream.

Julián Castro | A Life of Purpose and Service

Good Life Project

My guest today is former, U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, mayor of San Antonio, Texas and presidential candidate, Julián Castro. Today’s conversation is personal. Growing up in San Antonio, his love of the city, example of his grandmother’s devotion to family and hard work and his mom’s commitment to social justice and activism instilled a deep reverence for public service. He’d eventually head to college and then law school with his twin brother, Joaquin, before returning to San Antonio to immerse himself in the pursuit of making the city he loved the best, most equitable and inclusive place possible. He eventually became the youngest mayor of a Top 50 American city at the time, before rising up in the world of politics, But, for him, it wasn’t about politics, it was about service, about honoring the examples of his mom and nana to help others. Much if this story is shared in Secretary Castro’s memoir, An Unlikely Journey: Waking Up from My American Dream. He currently hosts Lemonada Media's hit podcast, Our America with Julián Castro. We dive into all of this in today’s moving, wise and open conversation about the role of family, service and connection.You can find Julián Castro at:Our America podcast : https://smarturl.it/ouramericapodcastInstagram : https://www.instagram.com/juliancastrotx/Check out our offerings & partners: My New Book SparkedMy New Podcast SPARKEDVisit Our Sponsor Page For a Complete List of Vanity URLs & Discount Codes.
