jason McBeth

The chat I have with poet and activist Jason McBeth on this weeks “Conversations With Matt Dwyer” is a really great and intense one. Jason grew up in the Foster Care System. He was bounced around to twelve different high schools, was addicted to drugs and homeless. Somehow in the midst of this he discovered Shakespeare and poetry. He dispenses with some eye opening facts and stories about the Foster Care system and how it does very very little to prepare these kids when they are forced into the world when they turn 18. 

He’s a super insightful smart guy. We also dig into politics and he has a very interesting point about Zero Dark Thirty. Check this shit out.
