Ep. 154 -Time To Talk w/ Alex Reads

Welcome back to another episode of RNT Fitness Radio, where I’m joined by writer and podcaster Alex Reads in an inspiring and candid conversation covering topics around mental health, spirituality, being a black millennial, writing, journaling, feminism, and how many of the answers to the world’s biggest problems are already there for us in books, essays and literature. Alex is in the process of writing his first book, Time To Talk, and I’d highly recommend following along his journey to publication. I hope you enjoy this episode!
