Bryan Stevenson

A podcast series on my fave list is “Stay Tuned.” I’m behind on my podcast listening, but was able to hear the recent one, which featured Bryan Stevenson, who has spent his life on criminal-justice reform (link here) and his job as an attorney defending minors on death row.

I found the podcast to be refreshing, as he talked about going to Harvard Law School and feeling lost about his work until he realized he felt called to defend the poor and forgotten.

I was really struck by how Bryan spoke with both wisdom and determination, gentleness and rigor.

So, I found this TED Talk and watched it. He starts off by talking about his grandmother and then talks about his work. I learned a lot and wanted to pass it along.
